Mod parent up. I want to protect children from seeing both porn and violence; in my case I call it "parenting" and that responsibility falls to me (for my kids in any case). Another idea that goes along with this whole "parenting" school of thought is that children should be prepared for the real world, and (hopefully) socialized and educated such that they will grow up learning to think and feel for themselves. Both porn and violence are real world factors that kids will eventually be confronted with and it's my job to protect them before they are ready and prepare them to be (I hope) thoughtful, sagacious, pragmatic, etc. once they are ready.

Endangered Species Condoms 61

The Center for Biological Diversity wants to help put a polar bear in your pants with their endangered species condom campaign. They hope that giving away 100,000 free Endangered Species Condoms across the country will highlight how unsustainable human population growth is driving species to extinction, and instill the sexual prowess of the coquí guajón rock frog, nature's most passionate lover, in the condom users. From the article: "To help people understand the impact of overpopulation on other species, and to give them a chance to take action in their own lives, the Center is distributing free packets of Endangered Species Condoms depicting six separate species: the polar bear, snail darter, spotted owl, American burying beetle, jaguar, and coquí guajón rock frog."
