Journalist: “Someone needs to create porn for children”

A journalist for The Times, Flora Gill, caused uproar online after stating that there should be “entry level porn” that was specifically “for children.”

Gill, who is the host of the Times Radio show “Split Opinion,” and who has written for GQ, the Sunday Times Magazine, the Evening Standard and other publications, posted the inflammatory tweet late on Thursday evening.

“Someone needs to create porn for children,” she said.

“Hear me out. Young teens are already watching porn but they’re finding hard core, aggressive videos that give a terrible view of sex. They need entry level porn! A soft core site where everyone asks for consent and no one gets choked, etc.”

She later clarified: “To clarify – children means under 18. I’m talking about 14/15/16 year olds.”

After intense backlash, Gill deleted the tweets, adding:

“Absolutely not getting swept up into another twitter cesspool so deleted tweet before it picks up steam! Obviously not an actual solution, but it is a real problem. Everyone take a deep breath.

“Apropos of nothing I really think if someone quickly deletes a tweet, it shouldn’t be screenshotted and shared like…just let it die, you know? No? No one else agree?”

Reactions were not impressed to put it mildly.
