Quoting Quiverfull: Viewing Porn Makes You a Sexual Victim?

Quoting Quiverfull: Viewing Porn Makes You a Sexual Victim? May 4, 2016

quotingquiverfullby Claudine Gallacher at Protect Young Minds! – The Secret Life of a Young Girl Abused by Pornography

Editor’s note: While I agree with the writer that it’s a good idea to try and keep children from viewing things like pornography I cannot help but think her tale of the girl whose life was wreck by viewing semi-porn at a young age is fake. Just like those of Debi and Michael Pearl, belabored and false to make a point that could have been arrived at in a more reasonable way. Fear mongering Christianity at its most ridiculous false way. Is not lying a sin in the Bible?

Plus where is the legitimately cited studies and research to back up the author’s assertion that seeing any sexual act will turn the child into a hyper-sexualized being that spreads her/his damage to others? This type of extrapolation is like saying every child that views a horror movie is going to go out and kill people. Be sure and read her entire blog post and sound off in the comments below.

This counselor didn’t realize that a predatory sexual experience was not the only precursor to sexually deviant behavior in kids. Overt sexual exposure can also lead a child to act out sexually.  Sexual exposure can come from directly witnessing sexual acts (like a child being in the same room as people having sex) or by witnessing sexual acts through another venue (such as television or online.)

What this counselor overlooked is the greatest serial sexual abuser of children on the planet: pornography. Whether a child is shown pornography or stumbles across it accidentally, pornography itself can function like a perpetrator, prematurely awakening sexual feelings within that child. Mae’s counselor never asked Mae if anyone had ever shown her pictures or videos of naked people.

Of course, Mae was too young to make the connection between the videos she watched and her own sexual behavior towards her cousins. Mae didn’t even know the word pornography! Mae’s parents were left confused, hoping this issue would simply disappear.  It didn’t.
