Journalist Suggests Porn for Children



Parents (and the whole of society) should take note of trending stories and their implications for the education of their children in the public school system. The Daily Wire reports on a controversial tweet shared by GQ contributor Flora Gill advocating for entry-level style porn for children. 

Gill stated, “Someone needs to create porn for children.” She justified her assertion with the absurd assumption that presenting less aggressive, soft-core pornographic content would allow children to grow up with a better understanding of what consensual sex looks like. “Hear me out. Young teens are already watching porn but they’re finding hard-core, aggressive videos that give a terrible view of sex. They need entry-level porn! A softcore site where everyone asks for consent and no one gets choked.”

In response to the firestorm of comments her tweet elicited, Gill has since deleted her post and backpedaled, seeking to further explain her position. The journalist tried to clarify her original statement by describing the age of said children as “14/15/16-year-olds.” Yet again, she removed the follow-up comment from her Twitter page, stating she “was absolutely not getting swept into another Twitter cesspool” and urged followers to “take a deep breath.”  

Think Gill’s suggestion is an irrational one? You should. But you shouldn’t be surprised. This story does not represent an isolated attack on childhood innocence. The recommendation to introduce children to pornography is nestled in a wider cultural context in which mainstream media and cultural leaders are pushing for our children’s exposure to all means of sexual misbehavior. 

Take, for instance, the controversial oped that appeared in The Washington Post last month, celebrating the presence of “kink culture” (highly sexualized displays) at Pride parades. The piece’s author claimed that “Children need to know that they can make their own ways in the world.” In another example, some schools across the nation are beginning to embrace pornography literacy classes as a means of educating teens on the importance of consent by subjecting students to explicit images and videos in the classroom. 

Instead of advocating for a common-sense approach that includes heavy parental involvement and limiting or monitoring minors’ use of technology, mainstream media and cultural figures are seeking to justify the desensitization of America’s youth. What seems absurd today will likely be commonplace tomorrow.

  1. I think Flora Gill is right but perhaps not for the right reason. We have all the perverse porn because the far left pushed the envelope and you can’t un-ring the bell. If you are part of the group that rang that bell and now are trying to un-ring it then you are tacitly saying your side screwed up, so learn from there. It is like trying to implement gun control when there are 300 million guns already out there; you can train people to use their guns better and responsibly but that bell already rung. Much like in the porn case, you need to teach them how to use their guns and holsters more responsibly! You don’t do that by making every lifestyle choice someone can think of and put on video excused by saying “they are living their own truth”.

  2. Great idea – because children haven’t been able to figure out sex since Adam and Eve????? How is it that the planet is so full of people?

  3. Just when you think that society has reached it’s lowest level, along comes, *another* low-life sicko to prove us wrong…we’re on a downward spiral that I don’t believe that we are ever going to recover from…America’s children’s minds are being twisted to what I believe to be, extreme child abuse…why are these children’s parents allowing their children to be subjected to this? these poor children’s minds are being tainted.

  4. In 1913 Portugal Fatima..the Blessed Mother appeared to 3 little shepherd children..she warned back then that the final battle between her and satan will be over families…look at the constant attacks and bombardment on the family..pornography,drug and alcohol abuse,lgbtv..same sex marriage(which will never be accepted by God)the pushing of radical agendas in schools and entertainment and even now..big corporations and social media platforms,abortion…it goes on and on..unless we turn back to our Christian faith and take back control in our families..we will plunge headlong into chastisements..this pandemic may be the first of a long list of tragedies to come if we don’t repent and make a stand against this constant barrage.the Blessed Mother also promised in the end she would be victorious..but at what cost?

    1. John – most of what you posted is true . . . . . except the part about the Blessed Mother and her victory. With ALL DUE RESPECT, this is NOT Her battle, but rather GOD’s battle – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

      Although Mary was the mother of Christ, like all the apostles, she was still a human being. Give glory ONLY to God Almighty and no one else. Read what John wrote in Revelation 19:10 “At this I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “Don’t do that! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers and sisters who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For it is the Spirit of prophecy who bears testimony to Jesus.”

      Pray and worship ONLY the Triune God. Have a blessed week.

    2. I couldn’t agree more with DetroitDom here. Start with Genesis (especially chapter 3) and you will see that the devil has always battled to destroy everything God has created -long before any ‘Fatimas’ came about. Today we’re even seeing the destruction of the glory of God with the face coverings that so many have to wear to function in our society. Then there re all of the other things, too numerous to mention all here; marriage, gender, leadership, liberty, speech, associations, worship, etcetera.
      But we know the outcome is the Lord’s success. Satan is only assuming he can win, and blinding individuals to the reality that there is even a battle going on now. Revelation gives the outcome that gives us (as believers only) the hope of eternal victory and joy with Him. Don’t be duped by the false things of the RC church. They will all burn in the end. But Jesus alone can save you and bless you eternally in Him. Acts 3:26 “To you first, God having raised up His Son Jesus, sent Him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.”

  5. GQ contributor Flora Gill, like many others on the Left, is pushing our children towards sex starting as early as Kindergarten. As of a couple years ago, parents were taking their children to libraries so that transvestites could read books to them.

    Almighty God is quite clear in HIS views on sex of any kind outside of a traditional marriage. The fact that God specifically calls out “transgender” and “homosexual” behavior out as abhorrent should be a warning to all NOT TO SUPPORT such activities – especially towards innocent children!

  6. In other news, California democrats have introduced legislation that will provide children with weakened mind altering drugs in order to give them supervised experiences in what to expect and how to handle them. The democrats feel that a more responsible drug user will be a smaller burden upon society.

  7. Oh my goodness satan is having a hay day, I hope and pray that this whole situation gets nipped in the bud or the world is going to be dissolved by fire in no time. Lord help us all.

  8. To quote a dear friend of mine and fellow musician with whom I used to play guitar in the ’70’s, “Thirteen? I likes older women”. Of course, he was from Greenville, SC. and was doing it, tongue in cheek, in his best “Southern” tenor, just to tweak the San Francisco doyens in our neighborhood (Fillmore and Clay in Pacific Heights), as he’d then lower his voice an octave, look at them askance and say with a smile, “You do know Romeo and Juliet was written about 12 year olds, don’t you?” (Wm. Moses “Billy” Roberts, the singer/songwriter who penned “Hey Joe”, which was the second song he ever wrote and became Jimi Hendrix’s first and greatest hit.) Yes, it was all said in fun; after all, watching these erudite socialites with their “Prude” up and their culturally judgmental and historically ignorant jaws a’gape was always interesting and amusing. Then, just over a decade ago, came this:, with 7 year old girls “Dancing” to a Beyoncé song, “I’m A Single Lady” in a sanctioned public event in May, 2010. (How “Enlightened” and “Empowering” of their parents.) I saw in an article less than a year ago that in 1880, the age of consent in America ranged from 16 on down to 10, and 10 was not an outlier. If an agrarian societal necessity, then how does that explain a front page article I remember in a major New England newspaper expressing shock and dismay over an 18 year old teenaged man marrying a 13 year old girl in one of the Carolina’s in the early ’50’s?
