Is it normal for my 17yo daughter to be looking up rape porn?
I don't know if she usually looks those things up i just checked for something one day and rape porn showed up, i'm not sure if i should talk to her about it since she could've just looked it up once for no reason and i don't wanna make it awkward for her by invading her privacy but this is making me a bit concerned

does it really matter as she will be 18 soon and moving out of your house, amirite?
besides, how would you define "normal"? Webster's dictionary says it is what "most people agree with or do", and most people definitely DON'T look up rape porn, at least not on purpose.
and that brings me to this point: how do you know it wasn't an accident? maybe somebody texted her the term "BDSM" and so she searched it to see what it meant, and all these pictures started coming up...
you DON'T know, and even if she WAS, that is no indication of wrongdoing. honestly, if you are concerned about your kids finding questionable content, you shouldn't be letting them on the internet, which is full of it, without you being there...

You can limit what she watches

Have you established electronic usage rules for young people who live in your house - for example that you have the passwords to their social media accounts, that nothing negative is allowed to be posted online, that you monitor their social media posts, and that you periodically review their search history?
After you have established these rules, you will not be invading her privacy.
I would regularly check her social media accounts and her search history - and then talk to her about anything unusual that you notice. It may turn out that she needs to talk to a professional counselor to talk through some things if she doesn't feel comfortable talking them through with you. Counseling is often available for a low fee through health insurance. Almost everyone needs counseling at some point in their
If she is unhappy with these rules, explain to her in a kind way that as long as you pay the bills and she is living under your roof - you set the rules.

Keep an eye on her search history, if she keeps looking weird stuff up take her to therapy.

She wouldn’t be looking up that kind of stuff on your family PC. More than likely it would be her phone. And she would have it password-protected.
