At its best, the medium itself approaches something akin to the rudimentary projection of consciousness — a new means of expression, a very immediate and even intimate touching of personalities. Reclaiming My Space My Space pages are simple to construct and navigate — so simple, even a child can design one.
And millions of children do, with many thousands of those children loosely- or unsupervised and vulnerable.
“Newsgroups on You Tube have been organized expressly for pedophiles, by pedophiles, to share information on the latest soft child porn videos uploaded to You Tube.
Kids from just under 18, all the way to toddler age, routinely upload videos of ‘strip teases’ that seem tailor made for pedophiles, and You Tube allows many to stay up on their site. “Child porn is presumably hard to obtain, and You Tube’s offering of ‘soft’ child porn is the best of both worlds for them, in that they can watch a 10 year old engage in a strip tease down to her underwear, dancing to ‘My Humps,’ or worse, and it’s approved by You Tube.
But there was supposition in some corners that You Tube had cheated to gain their rank, with one commentator, posting only as James, pointing out a shocking possibility for You Tube’s growth.
“You Tube is currently the premier distributor for what is arguably soft child porn,” writes James.
And wherever there are unsupervised and vulnerable children, there are child predators, pederasts and youth fetishists, who seek to psychologically manipulate and sexually exploit those children.
Before the Internet, before chatrooms and webcams and IRCs, these were the depraved and obsessed and child-fixated adults who sought contact with children on real world playgrounds and schoolyards and kids’ clubs and churches.
Ostensibly, the videos were supposed to be ones owned and created by the You Tube user, but anyone could see the opportunity for the distribution of copyrighted material, and soon duplicated versions of television shows were making the circuit, being uploaded almost as quickly as You Tube could take them down.
Summer is coming, and with it, a slew of new movies to enjoy while you eat mass amounts of popcorn.
We're talking superhero films, period pieces about romantic affairs, thrillers that will surely be dubbed "high octane," and one horrifying movie about a clown who wants to kill everyone.
Call them their ‘stealth subscribers.’ They really run up the repetitive viewhits, they are all over You Tube, and have been since the beginning.” Pandering to pedophiles as an emerging stealth market cannot have been integral to the vision of You Tube founders Chad Hurley and Steve Chen, nor could anyone have expected the pedophile presence on You Tube to be so brazen and pervasive.
Seriously, someone can’t just create a profile and say, “Hello, I’m a pedophile. Astonishingly, yes, pedophiles can and yes, pedophiles do.
