Federal law prohibits distribution of obscene adult pornography

Published on Aug 11, 2016

http://endsexualexploitation.org/ Federal law prohibits distribution of obscene adult pornography on the Internet, on cable/satellite TV, on hotel/motel TV, in retail shops, through the mail, and by common carrier. The U.S. Supreme Court has also repeatedly upheld obscenity laws against First Amendment challenges, explaining that obscenity is not protected speech. Even so, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) refuses to enforce existing federal obscenity laws. From the time Obama took office in 2008, no enforcement actions against illegal obscenity have been initiated by DOJ, and in 2011 former Attorney General Eric Holder dismantled the Obscenity Prosecution Task Force.
All girls, boys, women, and men have a natural human dignity and thus a right to live lives free from sexual exploitation. All pornography is degrading, dehumanizing, exploitive, and a violation of this right. All pornography is a serial attack on human dignity, identity and worth. NCOSE exists to make society aware of pornography’s many harms, to equip individuals and families to overcome and protect against those harms, and to advocate that all laws defending the right to be free from pornography are vigorously enforced.
Our nation is now suffering from an emerging public health crisis fueled by the widespread distribution of adult, hardcore pornography, and the Department of Justice bears a great burden of responsibility for this crisis

CDC confirms gay sex can spread the Zika virus

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention said Thursday that gay men who have unprotected anal sex can contract the Zika virus from an infected partner. The government agency acknowledged that a February report of a case of sexual transmission inDallas,Texasinvolved two gay men.

One of the men became infected with the virus after traveling to Venezuela. After returning home, he started showing symptoms. A week later, his partner also became ill.

This was the second reported case of sexual transmission of the virus; the first case involved a heterosexual couple. In both cases, authorities are clear: the virus can be spread via unprotected sex.

“The take-home message is you have to consider any kind of intimate contact between an infected person with Zika and a non-infected person as a potential risk situation, regardless of gender,” said Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Diseases Research and Policy at the University ofMinnesota, told, 'the STAT News medical website');" href="https://www.statnews.com/2016/04/14/zika-men-sexual-transmission/" target="_blank">theSTAT Newsmedical website.

Osterholm noted that it’s still unclear if the virus can be spread via oral sex. The gay men had unprotected anal sex while the heterosexual couple had unprotected vaginal sex without ejaculation and oral sex with ejaculation.

Six other cases of sexual transmission have been documented in the United States since the gay men tested positive for the Zika virus. The sexual orientation of the couples are unknown. Five other countries have also reported cases of sexual transmission.

New analyses show where gay and bisexual men are at greatest risk for HIV

Number of men who have sex with men in the U.S., by state, 2013, per data collected from the American Community Survey. Originally published in JMIR Public Health Surveillance, 2016.

See the Emory Coalition for Applied Modeling for Prevention (CAMP) web site (www.emorycamp.org) for more maps and data.

In the United States, the burden of HIV is disproportionately high for men who have sex with men (MSM), who account for approximately two-thirds of all new diagnoses each year. Results from a new study estimating rates of HIV prevalence (number of people living with an HIV diagnosis) among MSM at local levels highlight areas where gay and bisexual men are at greatest risk for HIV infection. Focusing on these areas will allow health departments and community-based organizations to provide HIV prevention and care resources to MSM who need them most.

 As cases of meningitis, a rare and potentially fatal disease, popped up in cities nationwide over the past several years, public health officials noticed a trend: many of those infected were gay men. There’s no known medical reason why meningitis, which is transmitted through saliva, would spread more among gay and bisexual men. Yet New York, Chicago andnow Southern California have experienced outbreaks disproportionately affecting that population.

GOP Platform Identifies Pornography As A National Public Health Crisis

Jason Linkins 
Editor, Eat the Press

PATRICK SEMANSKY/ASSOCIATED PRESS
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus speaks at the Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans, June 18, 2011

This week, Republican delegates are meeting in committee to lay out the 2016 version of their party’s platform document ― a non-binding declaration of #squadgoals that will generate a few days of stories like this one before being largely forgotten. This year’s platform committee has taken dead aim at one of the few successful industries left in America, besides drone warfare and hot takes about Kevin Durant’s free agency decisions. I refer, of course, to pornography.

AMAZON

PROBLEM
Amazon, the world’s largest online retailer, is known for lightning-fast shipping, its Kindle e-reader, and selling virtually anything online. Regardless of their corporate policy, which prohibits pornography from being sold, Amazon is a worldwide facilitator of sexual exploitation. They distribute pornography and sadomasochistic paraphernalia; their Kindle e-reader exposes children to sexually explicit images and content with incest, rape, and child themes; and Amazon Web Services is used to host pornography and prostitution websites.
