Libdem Child's (mainly) weekly thoughts




You're probably wondering whether this is really a teenager's blog or not. Well it is. I believe in the Liberal principles of fairness, equality and community. I may only be fourteen but I can hold a good debate on politics. Honest, I can.

£100,000 Fine for Playboy Over Children And Their Porn Sites

Playboy, the global keeper of bunny's with perfectly round tails, has been fined £100,000 by Ofcom for 'serious, repeated and reckless' failure to protect children from pornographic material on its websites. Playboy TV and Demand Adult, which are Playboy's websites, allowed anyone to access inappropriate videos and images without checking whether the persons were over 18 years of age.

In 2011 I dressed up as the Easter Bunny and joined a protest outside Playboy's new club in London on its' opening night. Since then I have read interviews given by the organisation about how it stands up for women's rights and believes that the bunny costume wearing women who work there are strong and powerful women. If you believe this you will also believe that the Easter Bunny is slowly waking itself up to spring into action in Spring.

My guess is that Playboy has not bothered to filter out below age viewers because the boys who view the sites will be their future customers. Playboy is investing in the future generation and this is really a disgraceful type of investment in the youth of today when crimes against girls and women is on the rise. Come on Playboy - where is your corporate responsibility towards children?
