An intimate encounter with porn at the library


The scene is set, she is dark skinned and luxurious but determined. Her blue top fits snuggly and her cropped short hair exposes the nape of her neck delicately. Across from her is the librarian, red hair hopelessly clashing with her green shirt, her Harry Potter glasses too small for her face, yet her green top betrays her femininity.

They square off, eye to eye, the tension is in the air, combat!

The dark skinned vixen explains that she was in the library with her four children each more innocent than the next when men, lots of them, started looking at HARDCORE DADV porn, right in the library! The horror still shows on her face, the ungodly inhuman sexual imagery that will haunt her till her grave still has her shaking.

The librarian, the intellectual, hedonistic, atheistic, “American dream” hater looks at her and her pain, and asks, “WTF is your problem?”

Horrified our dark haired vixen pleads “Don’t you see, my four children have been exposed to hardcore pornography. Not the softcore kind where they don’t show stuff, but the hardcore, with close ups that belong in a medical book. My children are ruined, they were supposed to be presidents and I can’t even look them in the eye. Why do you let those people look at pornography? Why for the love of God?!”

Our red head, unfeeling from years of NPR and the New York Times looks at her dead on and says “Those filthy men who come in here for the soul reason of looking at the most foul of the foul are protected by rights.”

Our dark haired vixen sees through that heathen talk and asks about the rights of the children, clearly the adult section should be on the intellectual level of children, that’s the whole point of the world, a place where everything is child friendly.

Speaking of which, our vixen tells the red haired barren pablum puking liberal intellectual that one of those sex freaks pedophiles tried to follow her little girl in to the bathroom. Note, it is clear that only pedophiles would look at what this woman considers hardcore porn and clearly it is not safe for any children in any library.

Our Starbucks sucking elitist red head says “Hey, you don’t want your kids exposed to porn or getting buggered, don’t take them to the library, law of the jungle baby!”

Vixen looks at her, heartbroken at what has become of the Public Library. A den of tax payer financed sexscape where pretty little girls are chased by perverts in a sex frenzy.

But the red head shows she is empathic. She pleads, she says that porn freak perverts are always harassing children and librarians, but you see that yoke of a constitution gives these perverts more rights than children. It’s clear, constitution = porn in libraries = sex freaks in library = free sexual harassment, clear as day but she is just a librarian, there is nothing she can do.

Our dark skinned vixen is a lawyer and knows a thing or two about this constitution thing…what kind of lawyer, we don’t know or care because she is going to lay down the law baby!

You see those sick freaks at the American Library Association, that radical group is trying to force porn into public libraries, on our children, old people, veterans, our pets!

Our red head questions her whole world view as years of liberal brainwashing starts to fade.

You see, our vixen continues, there is this thing call Children’s Internet Protection Act (CHIP). CHIP means that if a library gets federal money it must block porn and anything that looks like it from computers, forever and ever because porn or anything like it is bad. And get this, those radical porn loving sex freaks at the “American” Library Association had the nerve to fight all the way to the Supreme Court to fight CHIP, our red head ignorant from all of this because her world is Rachel Maddow gasps, “what happened to the ALA?” and our vixen proclaims, “The perverts got flogged in public!”

What our red head could have said was something like…”You see this is kind of complicated, the filters have to provide protection against obscenity, child porn and things harmful to minors, true. The problem is the software has issues with distinguishing legitimate content that may share some semantic similarity with content that meets the definition of what should be blocked. And the Supreme Court understood that information is complex and therefore will allow content blocking to be lifted for ‘bona fide research/other lawful purpose’ which isn’t very well defined…anyway…it is ongoing dialogue with good points on all sides and trust me we want people to feel comfortable in the library and care about the security of all our patrons young and old speaking of which did you tell anyone some idiot was looking at porn or that someone tried to follow your kid into the bathroom? What came of that?”

Instead our red head finds salvation with the epiphany that the library doesn’t carry any porn or porn books.

Our dark skinned vixen places her hands on her sultry hip and proclaimed that she will come to the next library board meeting with aid from her church to tell them to stop following that leftist radical library association and to think of the poor innocent children and the good god fearing people who don’t want the library to become a porn shop.

The red head states that our dark haired victim will find support with the librarians for you see they are tired of all the problems porn has caused them. But the red head asks if the board will listen to her, and our vixen says “if they want to keep their jobs” for you see they work for the people and this community and not the leftist anti-American Pro-Porn-one-step-from-Satan-library association.

Our red head convinced by the vixen’s logos agrees and she is saved….

What to make of all this?

For a reasonable response I suggest you go here http://agnosticmaybe.wordpress.com/2011/07/28/filtering-is-for-coffee-makers-not-libraries/ and here. http://agnosticmaybe.wordpress.com/2011/07/28/filtering-is-for-coffee-makers-not-libraries-part-ii/ and for an unreasonable response keep reading.

I too care for the children, I too wish a safe environment and I too don’t think some freak should be looking at porn in front of kids.

Nobody does.

The problem with this kind of argument is that it shuts down discussion by creating and enforcing false dichotomies using shame.

You either agree or you are defending perverts.

You are with us or a pervert.

The sacred verses the profane.

Snobs verse slobs.

Great taste verses less filling.

I’m all for dialog, satire, reasonable chaos, but framing and recasting ALA as radicals is so extreme it makes you look like a joke.

And that is the essence of a joke, some exaggeration and calling ALA radicals (we are talking mostly white women over 45 http://www.ala.org/ala/research/initiatives/membershipsurveys/ALA_Demographic_Studies_March2011.pdf) makes you look like an idiot.

Here is the deal, ALA understands that filters suck. The Super Supreme Beef Burrito Court of America understands that filters suck. The deal is, if someone thinks that the filter is messing with their results or might do so, the library can take off the filter for them if they are an adult.

And it is a good decision because it leaves everyone unhappy. The library is unhappy, the patrons are unhappy, the people who fear porn in the library are unhappy because there is no good answer and this is the best idea so far.

In the real world, sometimes there are no good answers or truth, just shades of grey.

And some people abuse freedom, that is the deal in a free society and no filter is going to change it.

But what to do with these people who look at porn in the library? Well, the kids, mostly boys, can be handled easily enough. Privileges can be taken away, parents called. Maybe a red P on their shirt…

Now I will take a lesson from good old Bill Clinton when it comes to the adults, do not defend the indefensible.

There is no way some guy looking at a threesome on a library computer (no matter how good looking the people involved are) can be acceptable and doubly so if the participants are unattractive. You see, my issue isn’t against threesomes in the library. There are plenty of books that have threesomes, murders and the like which you can read at the library, even in large print I may add.

But reading to yourself about a threesome doesn’t bother anyone sane around you because it is in your brain not on a screen getting into other brains. And what parent of even the most liberal mind wants to explain why that man is watching three people dress like bunnies having a special hug to a kid?

Now that said, it should be porn, and I mean porn before an issue is made. Between the sexy ads, browser jacking, and varying degrees of what people think porn is, we have to be sure we are dealing with the real stuff.

And that will always vary from place to place and time to time. And so we need advocates on both sides keeping each other honest.

But that is not the point of the video or their creators. They aren’t advocating dialog, they are advocating mob rule. They aren’t articulating stances, but fear mongering using fantasy. They want their way, librarians want a orderly dialogue.
