I recently was reading up on an article that stated presidential candidate Rick Santorum was going to make all “Hardcore Porn” illegal. He basically said that there is a “pandemic” of illegal pornography and that it not only destroys marriages, but it changes waves in the brain and leads to abuse towards women. Really?
I would post the page that was on Santorums official website, but the fucker took it down and denied that it referred to all pornography in general. This is despite the specific passage that I was able to pull off of another site that quoted the article. I was too damn busy or else I would have posted this shit earlier, but here is the quote from his site before they took it down.
a pandemic … pornography is toxic to marriages and relationships. It contributes to misogyny and violence against women. It is a contributing factor to prostitution and sex trafficking. … The Obama administration has turned a blind eye to those who wish to preserve our culture from the scourge of pornography and has refused to enforce obscenity laws.
Yeah thanks for that asshole. First off a Pandemic is defined as a disease over a widespread area. Since there is no scientific proof that Pornography addiction is an actual diagnosable disease than it cannot be a pandemic. Way to make it sound way worse than it actually is. It’s not like people are out spanking it in the middle of Wal-Mart while looking at the work out videos or anything.
A bunch of people who claim to be submitting “Scientific” studies state that they have evidence of this bullshit. These people are quite obviously biased in their opinions and their evidence is quite lackluster. You know there are millions of people that look at porn every year. With those kinds of numbers it’s no wonder that some of the people committing these crimes also watch porn. That’s like saying that we need to stop selling gas because there is strong evidence that people who buy gas are more likely to steal a car.
However if pornography truly leads to an increase in violent crimes against women than why has violent crime been on a decline over the past few decades despite the fact that Porn is more readily available now than ever before. Hell you don’t even have to be searching for tits to end up finding them by mistake. Afterall, I’m sure people searching for porn are probably reading this right now and getting pissed because there are no titties on this page.
Rick Santorum: Does he really need to tell you what to jerk off to?
The bottom line here and the reason that this bothers the absolute piss out of me is this: Rick Santorum is hoping to get a lot of votes from people with strong “Family Values” by taking our liberties away. What the hell is that? One families values and beliefs may be completely different from another families. So how can this guy to the right think he knows what every single person in the country should believe in. You must be completely retarded to think that would ever work. Want proof of why you can’t outlaw porn with current legislation?
12 Jurors in LA could not agree to convict a man who was involved in making porn that involved eating shit. That’s right, a jury of 12 didn’t come to an agreement that women in porn eating shit was considered “obscene”. So if the most fucked up porn ever can’t be considered obscene in the court of law than I don’t think anything would.
Even further proof in this, a rural jury in Arkansas acquitted material than involved double penetration, multiple pop facial, and themes of punishment and rough sex. It took only 4 hours for them to reach their decision.
These people treat all people in the business like they are evil and this is simply not true. I know a lot of people that work in this industry and they are thoughtful and productive members to society. Hell, at least they have jobs and don’t mooch off of our tax money.
So fuck off to not only Rick Santorum, but to all Anti-Porn groups and other politicians that think they can shove morality down the throats of the American public. Sex is a natural part of life, so why do we treat it like it’s the most awful thing ever? If you had video of animals having sex it would be shown in classrooms and on TV everywhere, but when our own species do it we turn our heads in disgust and all hell breaks loose.
Let me end me rant on this note: Any law that tries to force “values” or “morality” onto people by making it illegal to do otherwise is a law that this country doesn’t need. The truth of the matter is that most of us Americans are good people and we don’t need a government to tell us how we should behave in the privacy of our homes. Let the politicians worry about more important things like making out economy better and keeping us safe from other countries that may threaten our way of life.
