I wasn’t planning on staying up this late, but decided to listen to this.
Mixed feelings…but a lot of appreciation and respect to Lyta Hall, for having the courage to do this at all.
Zhana spends a lot of time afterwards, speaking to her listeners…I eventually shut it down, because there wasn’t really anything new here, for me. It’s just interesting watching someone explain certain things, to people who are unfamiliar with the topic.
That sort of audience has not been primed for this kind of a discussion…especially not one involving child pornography. This point absolutely comes through.
There were a number of things that went through my mind…and that I could express here…but, I’m keeping those to myself…and I’m just sharing this with my readers.
Unfortunately, I don’t believe this content is downloadable.
I would like to say one thing, however…
…Speaking clearly and precisely about an issue like “child pornography” [especially if you’re speaking from personal experience, and you’ve never been prosecuted for the specific incident], to an audience that isn’t really ready for that kind of a conversation…that is very dicey ground on which to be treading.
This is one of the biggest problems with discussing “child pornography”…
…If you deny ever having partaken in any of it, then “you don’t know what you are talking about, from lack of knowing the issue”…
…But you cant discuss it in the most meaningful of ways, without incriminating yourself…
It’s one of the worst, most dangerous catch 22’s out there…and they’ll usually drag you through the mud, no matter what side of the fence you end up on.
Hence…I really would recommend avoiding that particular topic, in that sort of venue.
I mean…a few of the people in that text chat, were discussing reporting Lyta, and potentially causing trouble, over the “child pornography” comments.
…We do not owe those people that deep of a personal exposure…not when it can legally compromise us…not when it can hurt us.
Believe me…I wish it were otherwise, because this is a social conversation which needs to happen.
Admittedly…I don’t know the laws, where Lyta lives…Maybe, it’s all still legal there.
