Porn Harms Kids Movement - Add your name below


Porn Harm Kids is a grassroots campaign that draws attention to the issue of exposure of children and young people to online pornography in Australia. Porn Harms Kids mobilises researchers, child development experts, youth welfare authorities, the medical profession, social and public policy sectors, campaigners and members of the community including schools and parents, to work toward a comprehensive solution.

Our ground-breaking Australia-first symposium 'Pornography and Harms to Children and Young People' held at UNSW on Feb 9 2016 highlighted seven key points. 

1. Exposure of children and young people to pornography in Australia has reached critical levels.*

2. This is having widespread and measurable negative consequences on the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of children and young people.*

3. This constitutes a public health crisis, and as such is a concern for the community as a whole.

4. This crisis has not received adequate public attention, and needs to be publicised as widely as possible as a matter of urgency.

5. More extensive research should be conducted in Australia to fully explore and document the extent of this crisis.

6. All avenues must be pursued to explore possible solutions to this crisis, including education, voluntary efforts by relevant industries, and regulation ("Mass media… should not promote material that could harm children", UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, Article 17).

7. As part of its duty of care to children, the federal government must take the lead in addressing this crisis comprehensively ("Governments should protect [children] from violence, abuse and neglect", UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, Article 19).

    I am completely for this movement as I was exposed to porn as a child, and now I have five children of my own. I do not want for them to deal with all the struggles and challenges that I had to deal with throughout my life. For that matter, I wish for no child to have to deal with such whether they live in Australia, the U.S., Africa or where ever.

    I’m a psychologist who has worked in many primary schools, and I’d say every year I come across a child who sexually abuses another child, because it’s something they saw online and it looked like the people were having fun. It’s got to stop.

    Children have to be protected from mass media porn & from being trafficked by sex predators on the internet. Stop sex traffickers & internet porn and promote the Rights of a Child. The troubling effect s are desentization, intolerance & wrong views of sex which causes massive negative relationships. Federal government has a duty of care to act on this ominous public health crises.

    We need to protect our kids as a matter of urgency. The government has to do something…quickly. One just has to look at the news nowdays.

    The government must introduce strict censorship with this issue; anyone who doesn’t agree with this clearly does not have children and should have to take their own steps to access the material they want to view via private subscription; it’s just basic common sense and a return to protection for our society the way it was in the past when decency prevailed,
