It's such a shame that these days, students can't even use the Internet to research school assignments without accidentally stumbling upon unwanted, explicit material. Although you can purchase filters for your computer, it will not filter out everything.
There have been multiple attempts to pass censorship laws but all have been denied because they are considered unconstitutional. It's true that all Americans are given the freedom to look at whatever they choose. However, by not having laws in place for censorship, not only youth but also everyone else may at one point stumble upon these unwanted images. It's not simply a matter of teaching people how to avoid these websites. Even if a person is taking the utmost precautions, it still does not eliminate the chances of coming in contact with these images.
It's reasonable for people to make their own decisions of what they should see or read. It is a freedom they have been given. It should be up to you and only you. If you decide that you do not want to participate in viewing these things, then it isn't fair for these images to show up on the unwelcoming user's screen.
