a) They think kids aren't cluey and curious enough to seek out porniness? I know I was skulking around newsagencies trying to get a look at the pinups in Australian Women's Forum
when I was aged between 9 and 16. Really, the supervision problem comes down to parents or guardians or dodgy security on the sites and places where porn is available.The major pornographers have no fear of prosecution. Why? Because those responsible for enforcing the law fear the pornographers more than they fear the mothers and fathers of America, and they care more about the hawkers of pornography than they do our children.
b) Are slash writers technically "pornographers?" The way that letter sounds, it's like we're a bunch of leering old ladies hanging around Knockturn Alley trying to sell our dodgy wares. Last time I checked, due to copyright issues and general fandom etiquette, no one was making money out of this.
We're major pornographers now? AWESOME.
c) I wonder if Donald E. Wilmon's kids were going through his bedside table looking for copies of Hustler
while he was writing that letter...
