Pornographic Pixies


Passive possession of child pornography is not a victimless crime, authorities say, because by definition a child had been abused in the creation of the image, but that reasoning was no relief for New Zealander Ronald Clark, sentenced to three months in jail in Auckland in April for watching pornographic cartoon videos of short-statured elves and pixies. A child-protection activist acknowledged no child was harmed in the making of the Japanese anime artwork, but insisted it was still injurious because "it's all part of that spectrum." Clark said he wondered if he's also be convicted for viewing sexual stick-figure drawings.
