Ignorant Parents in South Africa blames MXIT for exposing Youth to Pornography

I was quoted in this article published on MoneyWeb, and posted this comment…

People who are accusing MXIT are likely not even using MXIT. I’ve interviewed Herman Heunis and I’ve also been using it for a few months now. Its a text based system for instant messaging or chatting in semi-real time. And whatever explicit messages are being sent are just words. And its not more or less damaging then what anyone can read in most FHM, Cosmo or late night on eTV! So parents must learn to deal with this new phenomenon by educating themselves and using this platform. How stupid can you be to blame the delivery medium for what is being sent. Lets blame the air we breath for the lame pick lines women experience every day or lets blame lazy parents. All parents should read this article: “How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Trust the Teenager” before blaming MXIT.
