The Fabric(ation) of “Innocence”

The last eight days have been orgasmic for the UK moralfag contingent. Why? Well, beyond the de facto banning of Human Centipede II

Newspapers, Mothers Against Everything groups, and assorted Question Time panellists gave a resounding “hurrah” to a looming government crackdown on salacious kids clothes and “sexualised music videos”. Defiant voices of dissent found themselves well and truly drowned out by the sound of nanny statist cockslurping.

According to Mother’s Union chief Reg Bailey: “parents feel there is “no escape” and “no clear space” where children can be children.”

Yet, I sit here thinking to myself: if these provocative clothes are so despised by parents, why the fuck do they continue to circulate? Some parents, somewhere, must be laying cash on the counter for such sartorial salaciousness, no?

All this highfalutin horseshit reminds me of the Swedish toy ad ban: an example of watchdogs and busybodies stepping in ‘cos Mum couldn’t muster the mettle to tell her crotch-spawn: “I’m not skipping the rent to subsidise your Ben 10 habit.”

Bit by bit, the nanny staters move to transform the UK into one huge ‘n’ glorified nursery, babysitting not only kids, but their priggish, petrified parents, too.

But hey, so long as the “innocence” of the little ones remains intact, it’s all good…right?

Hyeah, right!

Whenever parents, paternalists and Puritards preach the “innocence” of children and childhood, keep in mind they’re trying to sell you what Robert Anton Wilson called “Ideal Platonic Horseshit”. Reflecting on my schooldays, as well as the observed behaviour of present day kids, I strongly suspect the “innocence” peddlers must be on…illegal medication. What else explains their dogmatic determination to superimpose syrupy slogans over rugged reality?

If all those goody-goody gumdrops think their clampdowns’ll cease the corruption of their cherished cherubs, they’re doomed to disappointment. As as much as they wish to stamp out preteen-perversion, they’re just as determined to see said preteens get “a good education”; and where do they send their diminutive darlings to achieve this end?

If you said “school”, well, Sherlock, you ain’t getting no prize!

As I said, I remember my schooldays as anything but a playground of purity. Whilst not quite “red in tooth and claw”, things were much closer to that than to the cotton wool caricatures haunting the heads of the moralmaniacal. Fists got flung; epithets got exchanged; and Transformers got thieved; the latest 18-rated actioners regularly popped up in class convos;  and swearing saturated our speech (though I can count the number of times I blued the air on one hand—how times change!). More significantly, I remember talk of “willies”, “big boobs” and “fannies”; peers ogling topless tabloid temptresses; exhibitionism in the changing rooms; and, if memory serves me well, chatter by some  boys in my year about kiddy porn flicks (with one boy allegedly flown out to Belgium to be a star participant)…

…and all this before the advent of the turbulent teen years. Halcyon days!

Judging by the filthy-mouthed little fuckers in my area, and some of the stuff my twelve-year-old niece comes out with, the essentials ain’t changed, despite two decades of PC programming.

Thus, when saccharine shitheads  prattle on about “letting kids be kids”, or childhood “innocence”, I struggle in vain not to scoff.

Newsflash, you clueless wonders: kids show you what they know you want to see, a survival strategy they no doubt picked up by watching you lot in action. In a world of grown-up folk prepared to discipline and punish any young ‘un that “talks back”, “steps out of line”, or fails to “respect their elders”, wearing the mask becomes a child-friendly means of getting by. Throughout childhood, adolescence, and adulthood, I’ve encountered folk who flashed saintly smiles in the presence of authority figures, only to raise Hell, or revert to little shits, once the spotlights switched off. Hell, I’ve pulled that one myself, from time to time!

But, hey, if it turns you on, pat yourself on the back for protecting preteen “purity”; just don’t sob too soundly if you find your dear daughter’s correct ‘n’ conservative clothing  Clintoned before she’s sat her last SATS exam.

The flimsy fabric of “innocence” only holds out for so long…

    So let me get this straight:

    1) You’re a black man.
    2) You’re a goony little animefaggot.
    3) You think young white girls should be the prey of negro perverts.

    Par for the course in this day and age I suppose.

    ^ Mine is like this, but white and has better credit.

    Well, it’s true childhood innocence is a load of bullcrap, childhood is a miserable experience, but I don’t like the direction you head with this. Banning Lolicon is inexcusable but we need to draw a line between fiction and reality.

    Real children can’t consent for good reason, the decision making part of the human brain isn’t full developed till 25 (which is why I say we need to have all the ages, join the military/drink/have sex, need to be age 25) they’re not really capable of making reasonable choices, even if they’re not naive in terms of what sex is and not all sugar and candy there is a good reason we have an age of consent. Also, should revealing clothes really are a problem, children under 10 experience adverse psychological effects to over sexualization, like beauty pageants, that’s why child beauty pageants are condemned by psychologists. All most all children under twelve who have had sex experience severe psychological symptoms, as do more then 80% of children 12-16.

    That said any attempt to ban lolicon is bullshit, fiction is fiction and reality is reality, people need to learn to tell the difference.

      This ain’t about lolicon; I just think the images fit my theme well.

      I address paedophile panic in another post.

      Okay, I have heard the claims that you are making about age before, and I would just point out that there is dissent from them. Also, it certainly is not true of all people, there are people who make good decisions at quite young ages and people who are always idiots. Another thing is that in the past, people took more responsibility, raised families, owned businesses at younger ages then people do today, yet people also, as I understand it, developed slower than people do today.

      Yes, in the case of myself, I do think I am an exception to this rule that teenagers do not understand the consequences of their actions. I will come out and say that at 14, I probably made better decisions and was more aware of the consequences of my actions than many males at age 25. If anything, the thing I regret from my teenage years was that I did not take enough chances and risks, thereby stunting (ironically) certain aspects of my social development. This is one of my pet peeves, when people make blanket statements like this about anything, it’s not just this issue. The funny thing is that all my cautious behavior didn’t turn me into much of a “winner” and now I actually care a lot less about the consequences of my actions than in the past.

      Let me ask you something, when do think someone should be treated like in the adult when they commit a crime because this is one issue that really bugs me how so many fuckers want to increase the age at which people can enjoy certain freedoms yet at the same time want to lower the age that people are held accountable for their actions. On that issue, here’s my offer to those law and order types, when you let 14 year olds, fuck, smoke drink, and everything else then I’ll support you guys putting them in the electric chair when they kill someone.

    A very good article. It is probably contributed to by evolutionary-moral factors (morality being the performative inability to think critically about a proposition). Sex and kids are two subjects that bring up near universal retardation. Our specific (Anglo-American) take on ‘innocence’ is a specific product of Protestant pietism. the far more sexually conservative Southeast Asian cultures do not regard 18 or 14 as some mystical cut-off point. Likewise in our (or I suppose my, since some majority of your ancestors were the proverbial spear-chuckers) European past it was not unusual for someone of 12 to be married and engaged in an independent life.

    This may be one of those negative results of civilizational capitalism, i.e. it becomes possible for people to indulge stupid fixations and live in total ignorance of the past and present.
