Over 2.1 mil. People Sign Petition to Close Down a Popular Porn Site!

Sorry if this is a repost. This isnít really a new petition, but I think itís important.

https://www.traffickinghubpetition.com/

In the last few months, there have been several shocking cases of sex trafficking and child rape films that were hosted on Pornhub. A 15-year-old girl who had been missing for a year was finally found after her mother was tipped off that her daughter was being featured in videos on the site ó 58 such videos of her rape and sexual abuse were discovered on Pornhub.

Also in recent news was the case of 22 women who were deceived and coerced by Michael Pratt, owner of GirlsDoPorn, into performing sex acts on film that were subsequently uploaded to Pornhub. These women sued GirlsDoPorn and won a $12.7 million lawsuit against the company. According to a federal indictment, Pratt and his co-conspirators produced filmed child rape and sexual abuse content and trafficked a minor. Pratt reportedly fled the United States for New Zealand and is currently wanted on a federal warrant.

Comments - I am personally not anti-porn (given that it is produced ethically and woman-owned). However, if you use sites like this, you should know what you are supporting.

Girls (not even women yet) are being abused, and their nightmares are being transmitted for other sickos to watch. Then, when they completely reasonably (sigh) demand a site to take down the videos of their rape, they have no power. If a site even has one of this type of video, how is it not rotten to the core?

How is this any different from modern day sex slavery? How are the men watching these videos not victimizing these girls again, since views create a demand for this type of media? How can anyone have a normal mindset after mentally ingesting this garbage? A soulless corporation is knowingly turning a blind eye to the trafficking of girls and women because they know that they can get away with it.

Ignoring the outright illegal content, is it moral to watch videos of desperate women (including run-aways, homeless women, trans women or members of the LGBT+ community, or already abused women) being tortured by men who turn around and take all of the profit for themselves? Women are being cultivated and abused like a commodity for the amusement of men. They are hit, kicked, or abused like animals. They are different degrees of enslaved.

I am not anti-porn. However, when the most popular sites contribute to the objectification of women as inhuman objects for male pleasure, abuse them, and even host outright pedophilia and/or rape, I would argue even visiting a site like that is immoral. I do not believe a site that allows media like this to exist should be allowed to continue.

Iíd like to know your thoughts. I think this issue is important, because a lot of men trust sites like this to care when they really donít. They openly allow women (or men) to be abused for profit. I think we need government regulation on sites like this, as they are openly harming our culture and minds as a country.
