What was happening that was harming those parents or children?

Honestly I agree, if it bothers you OP ask him I'm sure he won't mind, but for ME it wouldn't be a problem, I think even the worst perverts are not into babies, anyways, they all have the weirdest turn ons, they could get more excited about a kid in a red sweater than a completely naked one.
this exactly. I am not saying the op should not ask for them to be removed. if she is uncomfortable - then remove them. I just dont' see what the big deal is with strangers seeing/using PICTURES of my children.

I personally can't stand the thought of some UAV w***king off to pictures of my kids. Actually the thought of it makes my blood boil. People have all different feelings about this, though. Many women pose nude for pornographic magazines and have no qualms about strange men (and women) using their pictures while *pleasuring* themselves, but that would make feel....really....really....dirty. It's just a personal preference and feeling about one's own body and the same applies to the bodies of our children.
Oh, and there are pervs into babies, there are pervs for everything.

i think that if you are uncomfortable with it, you should ask him to take them down. and i post pictures liberally i think, and i love naked baby pictures, but i don't think i would post them online.

i just realized that people doing online searches for child porn are linking to my blog...on a daily basis, which is creepy, i think, even if no physical harm is coming to my dd, it's gross and unnecessary.

while i don't necessarily have an issue with porn in general, i do think that child porn is unspeakably vile...and wrong. even if that is innocent naked baby pics being used as pornographic images. (obviously not wrong of a parent to take or have the innocent pics, but for someone to misuse them.) and also, for adult porn, i think that participants should be consenting - not have pornographic images of them used by others for whom they were not intended.

A lot of mothers here found pictures of their cloth diapered babies on a fetishist's website not so long ago. No one here frequented those types of sites. It came up during a search for something related to cloth diapers. It happens. It sucks and it makes many of us more careful about what we post.

There was a picture of a child using a breastpump from breastfeeding.com that somehow turned up on a child porn website that was come across somehow online a few years back. Sometimes the referral sites/links can be seen by site admins. None of us frequent these type of sites, but the web really isn't a big place.

Eh....well, I don't know that it's harming them, I just don't like it. It grosses me out. And I loathe the idea of it being MY child that some creep is perpetuating his/her sickness with. That's basically it.

I have no idea where you're getting that. It is simply not true. I have a website that I never submitted anywhere and it most assuredly comes up on all search engines. I have about 4 websites that I created for other people... ditto.

Thanks all, for your thoughtful replies. I ended up asking my dad to take them down, which he did. I do have one of the photos on my Facebook page, that only "Friends" are able to see. That's safe from pervs on the internet, right? (assuming none of my "Friends" are pervs...)

Your father could also password-protect the site, so only family members would be able to access it.

Where "outside" were the photos taken? Hopefully in your fenced, private backyard. So many phones have cameras these days.

It wouldn't bother me at all, but the important thing is that it bothers YOU. I'm sure your father would not want to make you unhappy or uncomfortable, so tell him.

I'd have your dad remove the ones with the penis showing. The vast majority of people who see a cute tushy shot are going to realize it's a frickin cute baby pic and nothing else. When genitals are shown it can get very tricky however. Anyone who works in the computer industry is a mandated reported of child pornography. The possible repercussions I would be concerned about would include your dad's site being taken down and him dropped by his provider, mandated reporting to the police for displaying child porn, CPS intervention, etc. Can others find his site? Even if his site is passworded and locked down, it can still be found, however with password protection it cannot be accessed by most people (there are ways around it). So if it's just a regular site, then yes, it can be seen by others. I'd also like to point out that Google is far from being the only search engine out there.

i am glad everything worked out i am sure he understood your concerns, he probably just didn't think of it (which is a good thing IMO) he was just showing off his sweet grandbaby.

and on that note, what a world we live in where a mama has to worry about perverts leering and her sweet baby and well meaning but misguided officials taking her children and arresting her family for taking an innocent picture.

It's just a penis...maybe if people stopped being so uptight about such things, there wouldn't be people with fetishes...every action has an equal and opposite reaction.

Can I just say, that even knowing what someone may be using those pictures for can be very emotionally upsetting for someone. You can't just forget the fact that a picture of you or someone close to use is being used without consent for people to "enjoy".

It is the reason that I don't post pictures of my children, my DH, or myself.

So what would the answer be for pedophiles? Make sure abundant child pornography is readily available? What about those with fetishes associated with non-genital body parts like feet or fingers? I'm sorry, but that makes absolutely no sense.

Not wanting nude photos of one's child up for public viewing on the internet isn't uptight.

I agree.

Also, we don't live in a world where people, including the authorities, have "stopped being so uptight about these things." You have to play by the rules of the world you do live in, or possibly deal with repercussions (perverts, prosecution, etc,) whether or not you agree.

I've been in the computer industry for years and this is patently untrue. Many hosting companies, Internet Service Providers, etc have mandatory reporting policies. If there isn't a policy I'd hope that most people would report illegal activity (of all types) if they came across it. But there is not a legal requirement to report in the computer industry the way there is in other professions (doctors, teachers, etc).

Wow, that is news to me! We owned a computer repair shop for two years.. I never knew we were "mandated" to report stuff. But then again.. DH never looked at peoples files.. he just fixed their computers.

You probably already know this but your friends can save any pictures on your FaceBook to their computer and print or distribute them as they see fit. I'm sure your friends are great people but if you want to have complete control of who sees the images (and what they they do with them) they shouldn't go on the internet or in email.

Sorry...

ITA. I think it's just best practice to not send out picks (even to family) that you would not one some pervert happen. So many ways for those pics to get into someone else's hands...
