Report: cartoon paedophilia [sic] harmless
"A report has failed to show that people who read cartoons depicting child pornography will proceed to actually abuse children
Cartoons depicting paedophilia are illegal in Sweden and Norway but are legal in Denmark
Cartoons and drawings depicting paedophilia [sic] do not encourage people to commit child sex offences in real life, a report by psychologists who treat sexual problems concludes.
The report, carried out by Sexologisk Klinik, which is a part of Rigshospitalet, was ordered by the former justice minister, Lars Barfod (Konservative), after the Socialdemokraterne, then in opposition, demanded a ban on drawings and animations of children being sexually abused.
“The whole affair is a classic example of something catching the eye of a politician who finds a need to symbolically change the law without actually looking at the facts.”"
