I'm from Texas so let me clarify a little.
This probably could be covered under child molestation.
The law she`s refering to just says if your Dad takes you the store and buys you a playboy neither the kid nor adult is doing anything illegal. In Texas the law just leaves everything up to the parent. This guy is their father and Texas prosicuters aren`t goung to tell people how to raise their kids. I`m not defending it, these laws let my mom keep me from going to school, but thats how it is here.
However the other report says the father physicaly forced the girls to watch the porn, i.e. commited a sexual act, i.e. molested them.

This is like how a parent giving his kid a taste of your beer is legal, while forcing him to get drunk against his will is not. Add in that these are two little girls and you have a strong case to revoke any visitation the father has, or try to file abuse charges.
Texans aren`t going to give up the custom of buying boys Playboys when t

hmm guess youd have to know more details to the story to make a serious judgement. Obviously hearing "forced children" makes everything sound dirty, horrible and wrong.

The media is good at leaving out important details :O

And another side could be that she's a conservative mean person that doesn`t want her kids having any kind of sex education and she`s upset that the dad tried to explain it to them.

Thank you news corporations for destroying what sounds to be a reasonable law.

You realize that if this law is changed, you'll be able to go to jail for viewing porn without a parents permission pretty much?

also, really, stop taking news reports literally. Because one person claims the other "forced" x to watch porn doesn`t mean he did unless he`s found guilty. Could be that they just found the porn stash and she`s upset at the husband for having one for them to find.

Will CBS do it for you?CBS affiliate
Or ABC? ABC affiliate

So how do you feel about a prosecutor "finding a way" to prosecute someone who did something that wasn't illegal?
