Second Life ban for kids

Second Life objectifies women? I thought it objectified Furries? o.O “Nearly ’13 million’ users visit it (Second Life) every day – it’s a ‘new’ ‘website’ called second life ” I don’t think so lady!

Are there really only 50,000 predators online? Where are the rest…? At the shopping mall probably. Better drag the kids off the PC and send ’em out there…

I really hope that kids don’t start playing Second Life – which is full of fun educational projects, lectures and workshops from Colleges and Universities around the world. They should watch more Fox violence on TV, anything else just isn’t normal.

Beat up stories. Snippets to shock yet not engage the passive viewer of The Evening”News”. And they say that ‘social media’ is ruining our culture.* Grrrrr.

I’m not even going to comment on Congressman Kirk’s attempt to make Second Life forbidden fruit by blocking it in internet cafes.

  1. Great Blog, my children Love to interact on line, the more they use this technology the better equiped they will be for the future. Its like anything you just have to teach them how to be careful and safe.

  2. @Kempsey Heights – You are EXACTLY right! I would no more leave kids unattended in a virtual world than i would hand them a loaded gun and say “dont be stupid with it”.
