Dear Sir, We feel obliged to oppose this proposal.We support efforts to improve online safety. Unfortunately groups such as the one proposed almost invariably espouse policies some of which are based on folk law rather than fact. Consequently some of their actions harm the very people that they claim to be protecting. Policy must be based on evidence, anything else is suppersition and indistinguishable from prejudice. For example it is not coincidence that the most prudish western countries eg USA, have about ten times the teenage pregnancy rates of the most liberal countries eg Denmark and The Netherlands. The probable risk of harm to young people outweighs the possible benefits of groups such as this. Please see our recent submission to The Scottish Government for a more detailed consideration of these issues. http://www.british-naturism.org.uk/mediacentre/files/submission_CYPSCD_TSG_0902.pdf
