Crossing The Fence
We learn at an early age that there are fences in our everyday life that shouldn't be crossed. ..We're told to leave the stove top alone, then when we disobey, we learn that it's hot and it burns! ..We're told to leave the kitchen knife alone! Then when we disobey, and end up cutting ourseleves, we learn that it is sharp and dangerous.
What most people learn is that just because we can do something,
doesn't mean that we should!

Fertilizer bombs are a way of life for the loggers in Washington and elsewhere. For economic reasons, they use them to remove tree stumps as they clear an area. Just because some people know how to make fertilizer bombs, didn't give Timothy McVey the right to decide to destroy a nursery full of children in Oklahoma City with one. He was executed on May 16, 2001 for his evil act!

In Varner, Arkansas, Christina Marie Riggs was having trouble in her own life. She crossed a fence that ultimately resulted in her murdering her two young children. On May 2, 2000, she was the first woman in more than 150 years to be excuted in Arkansas for her crime!

We Americans as a people, hang on to 'the right to bear arms'. Just because some people have guns and think they know how to shoot them, didn't give the teens in the Columbine High School of Middleton, Colorado, the right to slaughter their fellow classmates!

In September of 1998, a seventeen year old boy discovered that the Comic Chat Character Editor would accept any graphic file for creating a Comic Chat character AVB. So he put a photograph of a dildo in it and created the first 'over the fence' AVB file. ( His 'Prodigy' web site was ). This AVB file was inappropriate and any user who used it promptly got kicked out of a chat room!

Since that first 'atzlan' AVB, there have been many other 'over the fence' AVB's made. Some are violent, some are 'suggestive', some are dehumanizing women, while others are outright porn! Like that first AVB, these others should not be tolerated in any chat room either! Yet, the makers of them are shouting, screaming, and kicking in defense of their 'over the fence' AVB's.

Who are these people, really? Are they petifiles protecting their sickness? Are they prisoners locked up in a State penitentury with a computer pretending to be some innocent citizen? Are they young teenagers misrepresenting their age trying to 'get away with something'? Are they one of the 'Ten Top Evil People' (see link above)

One creator/protector of these 'over the fence' AVB's says that some of her female in bathing suit AVB's are what anyone would see at a beach!

As a California beach person, I can say that some of the things some women wear on Mediterranian beaches or even some Florida beaches would get them arrested here in California.

So do we have the right to cross the fence, just because we can???

Here's a quote from a really cool book:
"..whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things".
