Some days ago I was doing my blog surfing and I came across a very disgusting surprise…the worst thing was to finally prove I wasn’t so wrong after all.
I’ve visited many blogs where parents upload pictures of their kids; I don’t see that as a problem, actually I have left messages to the proud parents in some occasions telling them how cute their baby is. In fact, I have posted pictures of my children, too.
However, when I see a picture of a kid naked or half naked I can’t help thinking that someone may be looking at those pictures with sick eyes.
I remember once I uploaded a photo of Manuel, he was in bed smiling and the sun coming through the window was playing with his blond hair, it was beautiful picture of my little angel. But then an upsetting thought made me shiver…. what if … and I took the picture away.
To be honest, I ended up considering I was wrong, that I shouldn’t think that way, that maybe I was the sick person who saw danger everywhere…but still, there was something in the whole situation that kept hammering my mind.
You may be asking what I am talking about…well, let me explain it.
I came across a pedophile blogger, yes, a man who not only openly admitted his condition, but also has pictures he had collected through the net. Pictures of innocent kids posted by innocent parents who were proud of showing the world their most beloved treasures.
This man, if the word man applies to him, claims he is not committing any crime and dares to condemn people for not understanding him and for making him live under a relentless persecution.
I was so irritated that I preferred to stop reading all that shit (pardon my French).
Sadly, it won’t disappear just because I closed the page.
I did some Google search and I found out there are many blogs with the same topic, which gives me the idea that criminals who use blogs for their illegal apology of crime have found the perfect place for their misdeeds. It seems that the blog world is a no one’s land; hence, it has no legal system at all.
As a mother, I have the need of giving other parents a little and humble piece of advice: Please, watch out what pictures you post! There are indeed evil people out there who will profit with your innocence. Also watch out what your older kids post, sometimes they risk too many things in a single post.
That was my disgusting discovery, and believe me, I wish I had been wrong….I still wish it were a bad dream.
I’ll post something positive next time….promise.
