Daughter of former home secretary criticized for proposing ‘porn for children’

The daughter of former home secretary Amber Rudd sparked social media backlash yesterday after suggesting the creation of ‘porn for children’.

Flora Gill wrote: “Someone needs to create porn for children. Hear me out. Young teens are already watching porn but they’re finding hard core, aggressive videos that give a terrible view of sex.” She continued, saying, “They need entry level porn! A soft-core site where everyone asks for consent and no one gets choked.”

After provoking a huge backlash from other users, Miss Gill, who is the daughter of the late critic AA Gill, added that she defined children as those aged between 14 to 16 years old. She deleted the tweet shortly afterwards. Gill’s comments follow calls for children to be exposed to kink performances at Pride events throughout the month of June, such as a Washington Post op-ed published in late June that encouraged exposing children to “kink culture” [WND].

Dr Ben Janaway, an NHS psychiatrist, wrote on Twitter: “Has Flora Gill not heard of sex education?” After deleting the original tweet, Miss Gill tweeted later yesterday: “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.”

She added: “Apropos of nothing I really think if someone quickly deletes a tweet, it shouldn’t be screenshotted and shared…just let it die, you know? No? No one else agree?” Gill is the host of the Times Radio show “Split Opinion” and has written for GQ, the Sunday Times Magazine, the Evening Standard and other publications [Daily Mail].
