Verizon defends decision to offer incest and child themed porn on video-on-demand
foxnews.com ^ | March 20, 2014 | Hollie McKay

LOS ANGELES – Broadband and telecommunications giant Verizon is under fire for defending its decision to provide hard-core porn titles with child and incest themes. The company was included in the 2014 Dirty Dozen List of pornography’s leading facilitators, compiled by Morality in Media (MIM), a national organization that opposes pornography.

According to MIM, lewd titles like “I Banged My Stepdad,” “Mom, Daughter and Me,” and “Pigtail Teens Pounded” are just some of the many offerings featured on Verizon’s FIOS video on-demand service. In a letter to MIM, Verizon’s Associate Director for Advertising and Content Standards John P. Artney defended the company’s choice to provide the content, noting that “consumers today have extraordinary choice in and control over the content available to them across these networks.”

“The explosion in choice is a tremendous benefit to consumers, but not all consumers want to have access to all content for themselves and their families all of the time,” wrote Artney. “Not all content is desirable to or appropriate for all consumers, however, and Verizon is proud to provide our customers with myriad tools to control the types of content that they and their families have access to through our service.”

As long as they don’t use children I believe its legal. So they can get a young looking 18yr old, put her in pigtails and make their movies.

Cancelling Verizon Friday.
There are two many options now-a-days to do business with a company like that.

Do you mean these are to look at on a Verizon phone? Or is it on something else? I don’t know all the items Verizon makes. It is a Verizon notepad if they make one of those? Don’t have their phone, have AT&T.

I can’t believe this. How could they make that response? We are becoming everything as a society that we’ve been criticized for being.

I think the anti-pornography laws are like the laws in defense of marriage, or the laws protecting the unborn . . . or, for that matter, the Affordable Care Act. The only laws that really matter now are those the elites care to enforce, like the one that forbids Christians from owning bakeries and hobby stores.

They can title a film, “Little boys & girls banging”, as long as they don’t actually use under age kids in it.

When the dogs’ and cats’ unions are recognized? (They make no bones, but they fish for benefits?)

Seriously, what would they think of someone going blackface and then performing porn? Oy vey the anti-racists would be ALL over them.

Yet when they do it about kids, which supposedly the whole village ought to care about... it’s carry on pervs!

This is a recipe for chaos.

You could watch it on TV via Verizon FiOS, by buying or renting it through your Verizon broadband account and streaming through your computer, or on your phone or pad.

You realize all of this is freely available on the internet. Please, go ahead and cancel your internet service right away in protest!! Just wait till you find out about web cams and what people are doing this moment... diddling away while hundreds or even thousands watch!

It is up to the customer to get educated and disable access to this content if they don’t like it. If you aren’t smart enough, aren’t willing enough, aren’t proactive enough to get off your butt and block the content then that is on YOU! Freedom is real tough so let’s throw it out so we can all feel safe and warm and cozy.

As a technology professional, I am consistently disgusted in the general laziness and stupidity of the average consumer. What you do with the technology is up to you and considering how powerful it is, you need to take the time to understand it and implement it in a way that fits your morals and ethics. Just because filth exists doesn’t mean YOU have to allow it into your home. There are plenty of tools available to block it. Problem Solved with no butt hurt or protest needed.

Capitalists, who see the massive demand for online porn, are the ones who make these decisions. This stuff is available because people want to watch it. Nobody is forcing them and if parents aren’t smart enough to learn how to block it then they fools and this is likely the least of their problems in life. Yes it’s nasty, yes it is questionable in its depiction of teens, but it is free speech and I support it. I don’t need a Government or some other organization to make decisions for me on what I view in my home.

I’m glad they are not in Canada other than the ‘enterprise solutions’ market. That said, I believe that Telus and Bell both offer lots of smut on their digital TV systems. Glad I don’t have TV, only internet.

You asked; “When’s the bestiality going to arrive?”

Well, honestly, I have less problems with pervs humping dogs, camels or ponies than I do pedophiles ruining the lives of children.

They are both sick and depraved behavior I have less sympathy for an animal. Besides, if the sheep back up to the fence aren’t they asking for it? I think that is why this arrived first, it is more offensive not less.

Re “When’s the bestiality going to arrive?”

I hear that the Arabs are planning to do some for export.

First reality show will be “I’d Walk A Mile For A Camel”.

Then someone in the US is making a series “Sheepless in Seattle”.

Mylie Cyrus is filming a bird show entitled “Raising Twerkies for fun and profit”.

Snoop Doggy Dog is going to start a show entitled - well you can fill it in if you don’t like “Doing it Doggy Style”, with real dogs.

You’ve already got “The Bunny Ranch”, something about rabbits I believe. Just ask Harry Reid for details. He might have been a walk-on in the old show “The Mustang Ranch”.

How about a remake of “Leave it to Beaver”?
