Pervy Spore creations cause concern, called 'child pornography'

If you've been following news about Will Wright's upcoming title, Spore, you've likely already seen a wide variety of NSFW creatures made using the innovative creature creator. Some may scowl over the questionable creations, but that's what happens when you put power in the hands of the internet -- penises and tits get drawn on everything. It's like a taste of life as ruled by 4chan!

Not surprisingly, CNN took notice, as any scrap of negativity about games must be covered by the national news at the speed of light. Next thing you know, there's a new buzzword to describe the phenomenon -- "sporn". CNN spoke to the "spornmaster" , a guy who apparently sits around creating as many versions of ass to mouth as humanly possible with the creator tool. He was quoted as saying:

"I admit it is silly and juvenile, but I don't think there's anything perverted, vile or awful about it. If people find it offensive, they can simply not search for it online. No one is forcing anyone to see this content."

That's true, I can avoid extreme tentacle hentai if I want to (key word there being "if"). A far more interesting comment was made by a Spore fan who spoke to CNN:

"I consider this very similar to child pornography, at least to the extent of distributing the material to children."

Are you at home creating CHILD PORNOGRAPHY, you heathens? I thought children had to be naked for that, but apparently if a child sees sexual content, it becomes child pornography. I'm so behind on the porn times.
