Quotes from Dr. Andreas Hill
Quotes from Dr. Andreas Hill from the Hamburg Institute for Sex Research and Forensic Psychiatry
"There is a very large, representative study in the U.S., which was already repeated twice - 1,500 children between the age of 10 and 17. This study showed that 42 percent reported to have come in contact with pornography on the internet, and at least two thirds of them even involuntarily. Certainly, this is not the vast majority, but 42 percent - and if you consider that actually the distribution of pornography is a criminal offense in Germany and also in the United States - this is quite a high number."
"In scientific research, we distinguish between the so-called "naked pornography"; then pornography with explicit sexual acts, and finally, violent pornography, i.e., in the end, real rapes that had been recorded and distributed. It must not underestimated that - according to what we know - the type of pornography which is available on the internet is more unusual, more deviant, also more aggressive and violent than what we have on videos or in magazines. There are studies that show this, too. But this is also partly due to the fact that ultimately the Internet is lacking any real control; and it is only a small part of illegal pornography, including child pornography, which is discovered."
"[The young person] will certainly soon experience an idea of sexuality that combines sexuality very much with aggression - more than is probably good for his development. He may have the idea: it's just like that; girls want it like that, women want it like that, and this is part of normal sexuality. This is certainly a distorted image and, as a result, he may in real contacts fail to recognize what a girl wants and what she doesn't want. Of course, not everyone who consumes violent pornography is automatically at risk of reacting aggressively himself. But especially when there are additional risk factors, the risk for sexually intrusive behavior by the person can increase."
"When that person is massively confronted with that and there are no ways to digest it, to talk about it, and to compare it with what is actually normal and what happens in reality - then he may get an idea that not even so widespread things are quite normal; e.g., deviant, unusual sexual practices, fetishes, such as sadomasochistic practices, and that standards of normality is set, which are not given."
"More and more often, prosecutors and the police tell me of such contact attempts. The internet has obviously become a place, as it used to be the playground or the youth center or the swimming pool, where perpetrators tried to establish such contacts. On the internet it is even easier, at least, because you can just assume virtual identities; there are extreme cases, but there are also less extreme cases."
"In the chat you can go further and further; one person suggests a stimulus or an idea, and the other expands on that; and thus they go on with more and more. And we are observing how patients with progressive internet addiction behave in those chats: fantasies escalate more and more. And this is easier when I communicate with someone than if I just see a picture."
"In normal pornography there had been very clear limits, but there are quite a lot of adults, but also of young people, who put very explicit pictures, films, or texts of themselves on the internet, which then develop a life of their own - we have no control of that. I think young people are to some extent a bit naive - even adults are - as to what can happen with these pictures. On the internet, the borderline between the person who consumes, who produces and who sells, becomes increasingly blurred."
"Police crime statistics and law enforcement statistics show that sexually aggressive behavior has increased among young people in recent years. There are clear increases of sexual offenses which concern especially children and young people, while in the other age groups, this is not perceptible. It is not known - even not among experts - that among young people and adolescents we have the highest known rate of suspects of child abuse and also of sexual violence offenses. So based on the share they have in the population, children and young people most often commit acts of sexual abuse against children and young people, and also sexual violence offenses, i.e. coercion and rape."
"Es gibt Jugendliche, die sind mehrere Stunden im Netz, dann hat das Wirkung möglicherweise auch im Sinne von Abstumpfung, wenn man halt tausendmal ein Bild gesehen hat von einer nackten Frau, dann ist das wahrscheinlich nicht mehr besonders erregend, das führt zu einem Gewöhnungseffekt, und man sucht einen stärkeren Stimulus und geht dann sozusagen eine Stufe weiter, härtere Pornographie, und so kann es schnell zu einem Gewöhnungsprozess kommen und auch zu einem süchtig progredienten Verlauf - das sehen wir insbesondere bei Erwachsenen, zunehmend ist es aber auch denkbar, dass es sich zunehmend auch bei Jugendlichen entwickelt."
"There are adolescents who are several hours on the internet. This possibly also has an effect in the sense of desensitization: when you have seen a picture of a naked woman a thousand times, then probably this is not particularly exciting any more, it leads to a habituation, and you will look for a stronger stimulus and then will go one step further, to harder pornography, and this may soon come to a habituation process and also to a progressive course of addiction - as we see particularly in adults, but it is also conceivable that it is also increasingly developing in young people."
It is genocide on morality and sex crimes against humanity. For sure.
Indeed, the lies about the Greatest Generation launched a tidal wave of cynicism and violent crime, said Neil Postman, PhD, largely "generated by our children, children post-1960s." (Sexual Sabotage, p. 356) By 1979, "serious child crime" reached a staggering eleven thousand brutal felonies that year. Postman, then chairman of the Department of Culture and Communications at New York University, described a dramatic increase in serious crimes (i.e., murder, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault) committed by American children. Postman reported that:
- In 1950, adults committed 215 serious crimes for each crime committed by a child;
- By 1960, adults committed 8 serious crimes for each crime committed by a child;
- By 1979, adults committed 5.5 serious crimes for each crime committed by a child. (p. 357)
And yet adult crime exploded during these years! In 1979, more than "400,000 adults were arrested for serious crimes, representing .2430% of the adult population while adult crime tripled from 1950 to 1979." (p. 358) At the same time, Postman reported an 11,000% Increase in Serious Juvenile Crime ("serious child crime") vs. Adult Crime 1950-1979.
