Lets End the Porn Industry by SionnaDehr Lets End the Porn Industry by SionnaDehr
The link to the article of the study conducted by Britain: www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/art…

Because, honestly, they argued their point superbly, I'm going to link to the points that jumped out at me the most.
"When you interview young women about their experiences of sex, you see an increased level of violence: rough, violent sex."
'Pornography is sexually traumatising an entire generation of boys.'
"If porn does have the insidious power to be addictive, then letting our children consume it freely via the internet is like leaving heroin lying around the house, or handing out vodka at the school gates.
And this toxic effect is filtering down directly into young girls' lives." -and that is scary.
"'Every bit of spare time I have is spent watching porn,' he says. 'It is extreme. I can't hold down a relationship for longer than three weeks. I want porn sex with real girls, but sex with them just isn't as good as the porn.'" -so it does ruin relationships... hmm, I am quite certain that it ruined one of mine (mostly because I wouldn't have sex).
"When I asked the children if there were parental controls on the internet at home, they all said no, their parents trusted them. They all admitted their parents had no idea what they were watching, and would be shocked if they did know." -and this is the article I intend to print out, bind into a booklet, and save for my future kids (or for the use of friends and family members in the same situation) for when they complain to me about not trusting them enough. I'll even highlight the quote.
"'You're watching bestiality?' I asked. 'That's illegal. Where are you getting this stuff from?' 'Facebook,' the boy said. 'It just pops up whether you want it or not, sometimes via advertisements. You don't have any control over it.'" - this makes me want to go yell at Facebook's CEO for allowing certain pages to not follow their own damn guidelines.
"It seemed as if the children's entire expectation of sex had been defined by what they see in online porn. The conversation was horrifying enough, yet there was worse to come."

And this, my friends, is what's teaching our kids about romantic sex. Pornography, a ruiner of relationships and a grotesque distortion of what love+sex actually equals. Thankfully, I have not had that distortion and actually know the difference, but that was back when the internet was relatively tame. What about now when the web has expanded and the porn industry has become sneakier? What about now, when music is so overly sexualized that when young adults listen to Nightwish songs concerning love and romance they don't even understand the wonderfully beautiful allegorical wording Tuomas weaves into his lyrics to describe the lover's first time or why the Nightingale sings? What about now, when children don't even understand the wording used in the Song of Solomon, a perfect illustration of sex and love working together equally?

If this is the future of the human race than I want nothing to do with it.

*sigh*
What's sad is the fact that I'm probably going to get more angry disagreements to this than resounding accords of approval all because people are so distorted and brainwashed that they can't see the damage done to them even if its staring them in the face.

marriagedoc.blogspot.com/2011/…
www.socialcostsofpornography.c… -the person who wrote this needs a medal and also logically, accurately, and factually refutes everyone's opinion of "porn doesn't actually hurt you". Uh no. Porn hurts you, especially when one watches it excessively. What makes it worse is that, with the internet, we don't always get a choice in what we watch if we don't have all of the proper filters on.

Porn is harmful to our children

So let's prevent them from watching it. Safe search, do your duty

I dunno. I found porn when I was 9(nine). My dad sat me down and talked with me for hours.
He answered every question I had honestly and truthfully. HE told me why it exists, what it's all about, everything.
A few school grades after that, and I had some formal, detailed, and graphic sex-ed.
Now I'm 14(fourteen). I'm headed into the IB program. I want to be a physicist when I grow up. 
If I do say so myself, I believe I have led a relatively normal life.
After five years, I guess I have to thank my father and my teachers for being honest and helpful with me.
In my experience, All it takes is a good role model to follow by, and the porn industry will become irrelevant.
That said, a lot of people like this industry. I not only tolerate its existence, I believe it's beneficial, and I support it.
Sure, there are... examples that stray far from what humans have regularly been doing for thousands of years...
But some people like to watch it. And so someone produces it and makes money. Supply and demand.
In the end, It just boils down to whom the child's guide is.

and no...
getting rid of the porn industry will NOT solve your problem.
It is very easy to tell that porn aint 100% responsible for children's behaviours...

ever seen the movies Superbad? Or Sex Drive?
both show a very negative stereotype that having sex is the
must for all men...

Virgin shaming, that is...

and hell..

Remember the Elliot Rodger incident?
He was raised in a society where
people shame virgin men...


------------

Porn is definitely not the culprit...
it's society...

I have a better solution:

SUPERVISE YOUR FRIGGING CHILDREN WHEN THEY'RE SURFING THE BLUDDY NET!!

If you so happen to fail to supervise the children,
then kindly cut off your internet until all your children turns at least 13 years old.

That's why COPPA exists.

it's not the porn industry's fault that the kids see it...
IT'S THE PARENT'S FAULT FOR NOT SUPERVISING THEM!!!


~Facts-not-feminism

Oh, and BTW...
a certain porn site created a fundraising campaign to raise money for Breast Cancer awareness week.
If you get rid of porn,
then you've just lost an ally...

Why stop at porn? Let's ban everything that offends you, personally.

As a sex-positive feminist, I find the anti-sex position (fine, fine, sex-negative, whatever) to be remarkably similar to the patriarchy's stifling of female sexuality. And that's before getting into the censorship issues of banning pornography, and my complete loathing, inside and outside of my feminism, regarding puritanism. Are you going to tell me that heterosexuality inherently oppresses women? While part of me would disagree with the assertion, another part of me would be telling you about the delicious, Sapphic alternative. 

That being said, could they make lesbian porn for lesbians? Like, seriously, all the mainstream girl and girl stuff I find just panders to male fantasies about lesbians. It's mean. >n<

Pft! Yes quite a few forms of heterosexuality oppresses women. I think porn oppresses everyone, not just women.  

I'm not a blind person where this is concerned. Porn is not a very good way to describe a healthy sexual relationship. There are, though, certain novels/tv shows/movies that can illustrate it better. Porn isn't really needed in my opinion. 

Having seen lesbian porn (yes, I've seen porn videos before) I found all of it very... dumb.
