Well, one angry girl doesn’t like porn, and she doesn’t watch it.
But is her life porn-free? Hardly. Used to be that if you wanted porn, you had to go out and look for it. These days, it comes looking for you whether you want it or not. Not a day goes by without several visual reminders of the multi-billion dollar sex industry that is gradually poisoning our country.
Some everyday porn intrusions:
Porn spam in your inbox, or porn sites resulting from a carelessly worded Internet search
Billboards for strip clubs and big box porn stores like Penthouse Boutique on the highways
In Portland, OR: passing 3 or 4 strip clubs on your way to work
In New York City: riding in taxis with neon strip club ads on the roof
Soft-core porn titles mixed in with the new releases when you’re browsing at Blockbuster
Escort ads in the back of every “arts” weekly, plus strip club ads sprinkled throughout
Playboy bunny gear and Pimp shirts on the kidz at the mall
Frequent “exclusive” features and articles on porn in mainstream TV, newspapers, magazines
Newly available: porn on the cell phone or iPod of the guy sitting next to you on the train; porn on the DVD player of the SUV next to you in traffic
If you’re single: having to choose from a pool of men currently expecting sex on the first date, a shaved pubic area, frequent anal sex, threesomes with your best friend…who then decide they can’t be in a “relationship” with a woman because it’s too much of a “hassle”
Interacting every day with men and women whose views of sex and love have been shaped by all the porn they’ve seen
Now, one angry girl doesn’t smoke weed either, but manages quite successfully to avoid having it shoved in her face several times each day. Why should porn be different? Should antiporn folks have to stay home and avoid all forms of media so that you can have infinite quantities of masturbation fodder, or an unlimited number of hot young sluts to rent for the night?
In summary, telling someone who hates porn to “just not watch it” is rather like telling someone who worries about air pollution “just stop breathing.”
