This blog is written by a wife whose husband got caught viewing child “corn on his computer at home.  

Out of nowhere, the swat team showed up with a search warrant and seized their computer.  They found child “corn on it.  The husband made a deal and is going to prison for 4 years.  While I sympathize that it must be horrible to wake up and find out your whole world is changing, I think it's out-of-line to be saying child “corn is harmless.

The reason this woman should GOMI – the wife thinks it shouldn't be illegal to look at child “corn because the children in the photos or video don't know that her husband was looking at them.

 

Quotes from the blog:

"Victim impact statements are commonly a bit of boilerplate stuck into the presentence investigation report, with no real consideration of whether it applies to the case or not. If the defendant used child “corn, it is assumed–and used against the defendant–that his looking at images has damaged a child. Even a child who cannot be identified, who has no idea that this particular man looked at those photos, and perhaps has no idea that the photos are out there at all."

"The person who looks at child “corn is victimized by a court system and a society that treats him as if he has committed the abuse in the photos even when he did not."

"Looking at images should not send someone to prison, even if society as a whole finds those images especially repugnant and even if those images are of a crime. We don't send people to prison because they look at pictures from the Nazi prison camps or from the rape of Nanking or from the massacres in Rwanda. All repulsive images; all images of crimes against children as well as adults. Why is child “corn treated differently? Is it because we assume the viewer is sexually aroused by something he should not find arousing? Arousal is not illegal; neither is masturbation nor fantasy."

I need a shower after reading those blog quotes. That is so disgusting.

Please tell me they don't have kids.

Her post describing how the police came to the house says "kids upstairs getting ready for the day."

 

It seems like someone who has kids should be deeply disturbed at the idea of perverts looking at naked pictures of children, whether or not the kids were aware.  I mean, I don't have any kids yet and the thought of it makes me want to cry.  Disgusting.

This is fucking disgusting.

As opposed to child “corn, the pictures of the Nazi prison camps, the rape of Nanking or massacres in Rwanda were not staged. 

While these incidents happened for horrible reasons, they didn't happen for the sole purpose to take pictures so someone could get off of them.

And also, people who beat off to pictures of Nazi prison camps, the rape of Nanking or massacres in Rwanda are creepy fucks. Child “corn fans aren't just looking.

How could she stay with someone who masturbates to child “cornography? Throwing up, judging, and throwing up some more.

Sigma Nu is not going to want to hang out with us if we fucking suck.

I have to wonder if this isn't fake. Written by someone who is into child “corn and is trying to justify it by creating this blog where his "wife" defends him and how it really doesn't hurt anyone.

I just have to not believe that someone would defend such a digusting and vile thing.

I am too afraid to go read the blog posts because this stuff creeps me out.  Question:  Did the wife know he was looking at child “corn prior to the police showing up? 

 

I can't fathom why the kids haven't been removed from the home, at least temporarily while they investigate whether the mother knew about it or not.

The husband of a "friend" of mine (that is to say, someone who was in my group of friends but who I didn't much like) was arrested for child “corn on his work computer. They have two kids. She says she didn't know it was child “corn–he was being treated by a shrink for an addiction to “corn, apparently, but she didn't know it was child “corn.

She doesn't defend him, at least, and of course they divorced.

This is really awful. There are lot of things in life that are uncertain but I know this: if I caught my boyfriend/husband/whatever looking at child “corn or being with a child, it's over and I would thank him for making it so easy to dump him because he is that much of a sick bastard loser.

In my area, three high school teachers are being accused of having sex with students, and two admins tried to cover it up. When are people going to realize that we need to protect children, not disgusting, abusive adults???? WHEN?
