New Child Sexualization Website in England

From BBC:

Parents will be able to highlight examples of child sexualisation on a new website, the prime minister has said.

The measure is among the proposals in a review on the commercialisation and sexualisation of children, from Mothers' Union boss Reg Bailey.

David Cameron also backed Mr Bailey's calls to make blocking web and mobile-phone pornography easier.

And he plans to hold a summit on progress on the issues, in October.

Retailers, advertisers, broadcasters, magazine editors, video games and music industry chiefs and regulators will be summoned to the event.

Under the changes proposed by Mr. Bailey's review, steamy pop videos would be restricted to older teenagers and later television slots and magazines featuring sexualised images covered up on shelves.

Child sexualisation is becoming a big problem on the web. Part of the problem, in all frankness, it is VERY hard for law enforcement officials to patrol the web. This proposal is a step in the right direction.

This proposal is a move in the right direction. We have to do more to combat the problem of child sexualization.
