Guardian Style Guide Adjustment Discusses Child Abuse Images

The Guardian has published an interesting article about why it’s dropping the terms “child porn” or “child pornography” from its style guide. It’s a timely article considering that there always seems to be some kind of loaded language game going on when discussing child abuse survivors. For example we have some journalists reporting on “coming out” as a survivor when sexuality isn’t relevant and they really mean disclosure or making a police report (or simply, “charging” abuse as seen in some Canadian texts). It’s an interesting read with good comments below the article. You can contribute your own comment for three days starting from Midnight BST this morning.
