    GOP Platform: Porn is a ‘public health crisis’ and a menace

    Republican delegates unanimously adopted an amendment to their draft platform Monday morning that called pornography “a public health crisis” and a “public menace” that is destroying lives.



    “Pornography, with his harmful effects, especially on children, has become a public health crisis that is destroying the life of millions. We encourage states to continue to fight this public menace and pledge our commitment to children’s safety and well being,” the amendment stated.

    I remember Ed Meese during Reagan's presidency, really hate this plank of the platform. Republicans would do better to let the churches address this because the next toe tapper or whatever just makes them stupid and hypocritical. Humans have weaknesses and the R's fit right in....

    Just a desperate attempt to fire up the religious right.

    Its really necessary evil for the traditional Republicans ever since Johnson lost the white south for the Dems.

    Yup. Same way the Dem platform suddenly adapted progressive/Bernie ideals. Lots of pandering going on over the next 4 months.

    I love the GOP. This is the issue of our time and I'm glad someone is stepping up to prevent it. Wait this is something that matters? Oh my bad, sorry I thought this was something relevant.

    Well porn is a problem... not because it hurts children, but because it teaches grown men to be **** lovers. (no offense meant towards scat lovers... that's not what I mean)

    True. And it creates unreal expectations that becoming a pizza delivery guy, plumber or taxi driver will get you laid by strangers on a daily basis.

    how so? I generally think excessive porn is for losers and the married. Kind of a chicken/egg thing IMO.

    You think.?. Porn has become ubiquitous. Research shows that more and more young males are looking to porn for the hows of sex. No your girlfriend probably doesnt want to be double stuffed while you cum on her face. I'm not saying that lady doesn't exist... but

    Glad they're trying to do something about this and not actual public health/safety issues like Flint, gun violence, Zika (some issues on both sides there)...or you know, their general love of stripping funding for vital research.


    Looking at the whole thing is kinda sad. Bathrooms, Bibles, porn, abortion, conversion therapy, marriage, guns, etc. etc. What are these priorities? Only issue that felt meaningful is the budget stuff...but of course they just want more tax cuts for the rich and thus even less funding for anything not war-related. And the "America First" stuff just sounds like Trump verbiage.

    I guess but admit to not knowing. That's why i asked and gave my impression. I am not really up on the habits on today's youth. It seemed to me to be something that people turn too when something is already wrong (cold relationship, some kind of social or sexual dysfunction).

    I know you didn't imply otherwise, but the type of junk available on mainstream porn sites today is a lot different from checking out stills of babes in Playboy. It's sort of disconcerting to imagine children learning about sexuality via buttholes being ripped open and chicks being choked and spit on - but that's what today's youth has got.

    I admit I'm very big on free speech (and all individual liberties) and I admit that I don't have a ready-made solution by any means. I am not into banning things, ever period. I think prohibition was a terrible idea, but at the same time I think steps should be taken in a community to curb alcohol use and alcoholism. Incentives work a lot better on human behavior than prohibitions, but I do think incentives shouldn't just be thought of in terms of economics (i.e. sin taxes). A public morality is good for people, in my opinion, whether it's based on religion or not. Shame is good for people in some instances.

    On this particular issue I do think the evangelists (that this thread was created to disparage) and the far-left are onto something. And yes, among the most liberal corners they agree with Christian moralists when it comes to sexual politics. Catharine McKinnon among many other leftist feminists outright advocate banning all forms of pornography for their depictions of sexual violence. I don't really know the answer and I don't think it's necessarily that, but just ignoring the problem hasn't proven to be any more beneficial. It seems like deviancy and pedophilia are worse now than they were 40 years ago (no strict evidentiary basis could be argued one way or the other but it seems that way) and it's certain that family cohesion is in the toilet. More marriages end in divorce than don't, many children are raised in single parent homes (proven to be damaging to children), and it's our most vulnerable communities that are on the receiving end of these ill effects.

    So maybe the religious moralism is worth a chuckle, but it's also worth considering our feminist and Christian critics have something worthwhile to say on this topic.

    We grew up looking at a topless girl in a thong thanks to Playbody.

    These kids now are growing up watching a midget get banged by 12 guys who pee on her at the end....
