UK Porn filters block sex education – Porn Still Easily Available


 

Earlier this year the Prime Minister, David Cameron signed into law a porn blocking filter that was meant to block easy access to porn sites from kids and adults alike. However it turns out that the porn filter is hardly blocking porno sites, but it is instead blocking some sites giving information on relationships, rape, sexual abuse and domestic violence are being blocked automatically.

According to CNET, TalkTalk, an internet service provider; “was found to be blocking BishUK.com, a well-known site that gives teenagers advice on sex and relationships, and the Edinburgh Women’s Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre, deeming them both pornographic.

Websites such as Actual smut and over 68 other popular porn websites can all be accessed via the providers, though some were blocked with some service providers while others weren’t, but it is clear that some legitimate and helpful sites are being blocked while porn can be accessed with ease. There are also ways to get around the filter that most kids would understand, but of course aging politicians, who don’t know a computer from an elbow think they can block what ever they want and it will work.

America tried and failed when it came to prohibition and the war on drugs is a complete and utter failure yet these old school thinkers are pushing the same philosophies that have failed time and time again.
