Because she is only 14. In real life, violence exists, profanity exists, war exists, torture and murder exists, all of these can be accessed just by watching the news. Any news. Dick Rambone the pool guy, Rock Johnson the cable installer, and Phil Uppersnatch the pizza guy showing up at the same time to Ms. Candy Greasetunnel's house for a 20 minute orgy is not real life. She wants to watch porn when she gets older, fine, but as the father of a young teenage girl it is my duty to make sure that when she decides she wants to date she does not have a corrupt idea of what a relationship and love consists of. I want my daughter to grow up with a sense of what the real world is like, but not as a two bit whore. I am the censorer, the parent, the one who is responsible for raising a productive member of society, not the government or anyone else for that matter. Anyone who wants to tell me how to raise my kid needs to start paying child support. Otherwise they can f***off.
As Watso said earlier, it should be mine and my wife's decision what our daughter is and is not exposed to, not someone else's.
