Frosty the Snowman and Porn

Photo by barrym67/StockXchange.com


I have a sense of humor.


Really.


But I can't see the humor in having Frosty the Snowman talk about his porn collection.
(A Fox News video clip that contains the ad is below.)

The TV show, "How I Met Your Mother" used the clip from Frosty the Snowman and coupled it with some dialogue from an episode. So, what you have is Frosty supposedly showing the kids his porn collection and then giving the guy selling tickets at the train station his porn collection.

Funny, right?

Sorry, I don't think so.

I just don't find pornography humorous. I don't like how it degrades women. I don't like how child pornographers go after our children. I don't like the fact that school-age children are being exposed to online porn.

Did you know that federal law makes it illegal for anyone under 18 to look at pornography? And yet:
  • Forty-two percent of children ages 10-17 were exposed to online pornography
  • Forty-seven percent of school age children (7-18 year olds) receive spam with links to X-rated Web sites on a daily basis. One in five open the spam.


Pornography harms our kids. It harms our marriages, our families.


It's not a joking matter.
