Pedophilia is not 'free speech'.

If you want to get down to the semantics, you're right that I generalized the word pedophilia to infer actions rather than words. I did mean acting upon pedophilia, like posting pics, not just talking about it, so you're correct that I should have worded it differently.

Allow me to clarify my point along that line: Speech means saying anything, and I would go so far as to say drawing/sculpting/writing/ thinking anything should be free too.

However, exploitation and abuse of actual humans is not 'speech'. Posting photos of real kids is where I draw the line. Because if you just draw a person, you are expressing your interpretation of something, and that's fine, because it's not real. It's an expression of your perception, an expression of what is in your head, and your brain is something that no one has the right to police. A drawing is just a thought.

. But when it comes to actually posting a photo of an actual human being, that is where the line is drawn because you are now exploiting an actual person and that brings an actual victim into the mix. You're no longer fantasizing at that point, because it's a real person in the real world whom you are really exploiting.

Real children can not provide informed consent. That is why they have special protections, especially when it comes to privacy, and that's why posting them (even clothed) is more unacceptable than doing the same with an adult. An adult can understand what is happening if their pic is posted, and they can handle it as they will, but a child does not have the capability to understand what's even going on, until of course they're older and then they get all fucked up in the head from it, often permanently.

That's the difference.

I often wonder if people spread CP around on boards they want shut down.

Yes they do, which is why we need to vigilantly delete and ban posters of illegal material, but not communities.

When you can make speech a crime, I'm pretty sure it's easy to plant or pose with CP and frame a person. It's disgusting that you can do that, but you can.

Sad when people put feelz before realz, but that's what this 'kitty' person is doing.

Pedophilia is allowed by Jews and Muslims, what you just said is extremly offensive and considered a hate crime.

We do not forget.

We do not forgive.

We like to fuck little kids.

Expect us!

Free speech is an important issue, but it's also sometimes used as a buzzword without thought of what it actually entails. I am for much free speech, but not 100%.

He's right. Sadly, this message seems like it may be coming from a pedophile.

Doesn't mean he's wrong.

And I must agree that some of their submissions make me almost puke.

Remember, some of their submissions contain women aged 18 or older.

I'm not going to check what they post, but illegal content at location of server rules the day. If whatever type of porn is illegal, then yes: It is a bannable offense. More over, must be banned. Otherwise the entire site can be seized by law enforcement who in turn will go through logs/records of everyone on the site.

I absolutely agree that freedom of speech covers unpopular speech-that is it's primary protection. However, child porn is not speech. Society has long since agreed that it is an illegal act. Not much more needs to be said on it.

No. Voat is a conservative echo chamber. Try posting something liberal and watch your submission get voted down no matter how original, interesting, and well-written.

Always the "virtuous pedophile" that tries to jump in and coax people that their filth is just as much a part of free speech as anyone else. Just trying to wedge their toe in to crack the door open so more and more of their filth can seep in. They will keep inching and inching until the age of consent moves from 18 down to 5. Don't fall victim to the well dressed rhetoric of the pedophile. This is a disease.

It's called freedom of speech. Period. I'm not one of them but I know damn well when a person is putting feelz before realz. Hint: It's you.

Pushing the envelope further and further, inch by inch on what underage nude pictures can be shared is not just "feelz" it's a disease and it's spreading. From the sounds of it they've infected you as well. First ally they need is sympathizers.

Always the virtuous racist that tries to jump in and coax people their filth is just as much a part of free speech as anyone else. Just trying to wedge their toe in to crack the door open so more and more of their filth can seep in. They will keep inching and inching unti linching blacks on the streets is legal. Don't fall victim to the well dressed rhetoric of the racist. This is a disease.

You know, it is quite easy to twist this to be against anything. Please stop fear-mongering, banning some speech means eventually banning all speech.

No. The most hated speech is the speech that needs protection. That means pedo's.
