    How would this work? I am all for limiting access to porn across the board but how will they verify the age of the person trying to access a porn site?
    Devotion to the truth is the hallmark of morality; there is no greater, nobler, more heroic form of devotion than the act of a man who assumes the responsibility of thinking.

    From the link:

    Verification can be done using government-issued IDs or public or private records from a mortgage, education or employment document, according to the bill. The bill, known as Act 440, was introduced by Republican state legislator Laurie Schlegel in February and signed into law by Gov. John Bel Edwards in June.

    A guy my sister went to high school with was just arrested (Friday) on 10 counts of pandering child porn. Girls 12-13. I don't know the guy but I know of him. What is with these people?

    Asking parents to make up for the social irresponsibility and selfishness of today's pornographers is exactly the experiment we have been running these last couple decades and it hasn't worked out too well. I say it's time we do something different and demand some actual responsibility from the distributors.
    Except it's the parents who are being irresponsible. It's easy to keep kids away from porn if you actually take responsibility and protect them like a good parent should. Too many people now letting their kids have unrestricted internet access via smartphones, tablets, etc. That is not the fault of porn companies, it's the fault of parents.

    Unless Louisiana intends to build a giant firewall around their State's internet, this law has about a zero percent chance of making any difference.

    It won't work. It's completely unenforceable. Anyone, anywhere in the world can create a web server and upload boatloads of porn to it. And peer-to-peer networks allow users to upload and download porn without any intermediaries or corporations involved. It is not technologically or even politically feasible to impose age verification on most porn servers.

    You choose to embrace a fatalist view of the matter because it's the only way you have of justifying your support for allowing pornographers free access to a child audience.

    In reality, it was a lot easier to snatch the comparatively harmless Playboy from under your dad's bed than it is to steal a state ID verifying your identity. I mean it's possible and it will surely happen in some highly determined cases, but it's the scale of probabilities that we're negotiating here. The fact is that introducing these kinds of barriers is pretty certain to ultimately reduce under-aged traffic to pornographic sites in the state of Louisiana to a fraction of its prior levels.

    Every boy I knew and know liked and sought after porn, I think it is kinda natural. Sex is a powerful driver. I remember a bunch of us sitting around looking at porn, did no harm, all married etc. TV is filled with sex and if you notice many news women are hot. lol But calling republicans good today is off, they are not good and their attempts to control others kinda sad. Un-American really. DeSantis for instance like so many republican is a authoritarian who is playing to the religious hate base for votes, not because he believes anything or knows anything. Religious fanatics are as dangerous as political fanatics. Wake up people.

    Finally we agree. Religious zealots are a bit selfish in their beliefs. They refuse to share what they cannot justify
