Pornography should be treated as a public health issue like smoking and ministers should launch an advertising campaign to stop people from watching it, a new report states.
Men should be warned of the impact porn has on wider society and the dangers it poses, the Women and Equalities committee said, and viewing it should also be banned on public transport.
MPs made the recommendations in a new cross-party report because of growing concerns about the way pornography influences male attitudes towards women amid a rise in sexual harassment.
The report, published today, details the many different ways in which women are sexually harassed or abused in society, from school and university to public…
One way is that women have power over men because they control access to nookie. The Robert Heinlein point, that only on Earth could there be a shortage of what every woman has an infinite supply of. Thus the condemnation of those girls who are no better than they should be.
That’s all getting a little Jordan Peterson of course.
Another is that if the blokes are getting their rocks off watching the screen then what energy will they have left to attack women? We are asbsolutely certain that pornography and sexual assault are substitutes, not complements, after all.
But that’s being scientific.
But quite how we say that porn is a public health issue akin to smallpox is unknown.
