I’m not sure where to begin, or even to end, with this story about a father who was branded a “pervert” for taking pictures of his own children on a slide in a public park.
I will point out my favorite line in the article…
One even accused him of photographing youngsters to put the pictures on the internet.
A few thoughts…
- By making such an accusation, that woman all but guaranteed that the pictures would show up on the innernets. Ah, the blindness of sanctimony.
- Where exactly is this place where it’s considered so outlandish to post pictures on the innernets? It sounds perfectly blissful, given that ignorance is bliss.
- And, if taking pictures of kids with the intent of posting them on the internet becomes a crime, I’m in trouble (and at 24 fps, I’m in even more trouble)…but I’ll have plenty of company.
If that woman really wants to protest something obscene on the innernets, she needs go no further than the very paper that reported on her Ludditic outburst, which shows that there are plenty of other obscene online displays for her to rail against.
…and yes, “Ludditic.” My blog, my lexicon. So there. Besides, nobody’s ever alone on the innernets.
