Earlier this week, it was reported that National Telecommunications Communication (NTC) has blocked popular pornography sites such as Pornhub and Xvideos in an effort to stop the spread of pornographic images or videos which have children as the subjects. As defined by Republic Act No. 9775 or the Anti-Child Pornography Act of 2009, children are persons below 18 years of age (or over but due to disability are unable to fully take care of themselves).
We are living in a truly digital age and this allows us to do almost anything online. From booking flights or cab rides, bank transactions, buying and selling used items, and even finding rooms or apartments for rent halfway across the globe. This online empowerment also allows us to work from the comfort of our homes, free from the hassles of a daily commute and an office job with co-workers we may or may not like.
