You don't like it? Don't surf to it.

Yes, because prohibitions always work and neverbackfire and create an even greater demand for what they were intended by the pearl clutchers to stop.

If you ban porn, then only criminals will have porn!

E.D. of the American Principles Project

The organization's name makes it seem like there is a cohesive, coherent and agreed upon set of American Principles. Can someone give an example of an American Principle?
 
2020-11-21 8:28:41 PM  
I guess one principle that comes to mind is the industrious nature of entrepreneurs who identify a market need, then take steps to deliver the product to a free-thinking market. Like pornographers.

If porn is ever outlawed, I'ma gonna be sooooo rich.
 
2020-11-21 8:49:28 PM  
Even assuming this was a good idea, who decides what is or isn't porn?  Had porn been outlawed four years ago, Donald Trump would have simply declared anything critical of him to be porn.

What do they define as porn?  Still wonder how it makes so much money

First abortion then porn.

Banning abortion and same sex marriage, "protecting" children from those scary trans people and going back to the gold standard.  Not even kidding.

Martian_Astronomer: TL;DR: Basically everyone sees porn at some time or another, but it's primarily religious people that feel bad about it.


One of the important criteria in the clinical definition of addiction is that it's use continues despite having harmful effects (including harm to self or others). Your observation suggests that harm is happening to the religious, but they continue to engage in it. I'm convinced you're right, this is an addiction, and it's time that mainstream society finally recognizes just how dangerous religion really is.

(Actually, mainstream society does recognize this, but, like true addicts, think their religion is special and not like all the rest).

I'm good.

/ kidding..porn has honestly never interested me but to each their own.
 
2020-11-21 10:33:24 PM  
I have a great idea. They should make a movie with two hot bisexual 20 year old girls that have a very specific desire to have a 3way with a 56 year old chubby male nurse. Oddly enough, I just happen to be 56

Porn addiction is totally real and not a creation of moralists and "Christian" therapists who got their mail order degrees from Falwell inc.

Next, I'll regale you on how masturbation made me blind and have hair on my palms

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: Why would Newsweek publish this trash?


It's a zombie magazine.

https://newrepublic.com/article/15896​8​/newsweek-rise-zombie-magazine

Writing in The Columbia Journalism Review last year, Daniel Tovrov depicted Newsweek, once one of America's most distinguished magazines, as a shell of its former self. All that was left was clickbait, op-eds from the likes of Nigel Farage and Newt Gingrich, and a general sense of drift. "Nobody I spoke to for this article had a sense of why Newsweek exists," Tovrov wrote. "While the name Newsweek still carries a certain authority-remnants of its status as a legacy outlet-and the magazine can still bag an impressive interview now and then, it serves an opaque purpose in the media landscape."

Manifest destiny, which is embodied in the feeling they have, that they are obligated or heroic for projecting their military around the world. Hell, today we saw an article that they want another Pacific fleet to control the oceans, even tbough 72 million of them voted for a fascist dictator this month.

Not only that, but I'm going to bet that, behind closed doors, these "moral" people are busy snorting coke of the backs of male hookers while betting on cock fights.

Anything can be addictive. If it's not physically addictive and doesn't negatively affect your life or the lives of others, who cares?

Conservative think tanks are simply not credible. It's just logical to assume they're lying about this since they lie so much.

"88 percent of the most popular pornographic videos contain physical violence"

A very minor detail.  Their source doesn't appear to say anything of the sort.
