Somehow this was the most boring of these controversial 'opposing viewpoint' books. It's not always the issue but the arguments themselves that can be interesting. I bet the 'Sex Trade and Prostitution', and 'Building a Philosophy for Life' Opposing Viewpoints books are more interesting. It didn't help matters that most of those writing in favor of porn were lawyers, hired by this or that porn association, and their hearts didn't really seem to be in it.
One of those writing in favor of porn mentioned that there are 3 possible steps the authorities could take to get rid of it. Each choice would be too expensive or inconvenient or draconian. There is a 4th option however.
Those taking a stand Against online pornography made arguments I disagreed with. In fact their argument seemed to be women and children are being victimized by mad predators and porn feeds these predators or sets them off. I'm greatly exaggerating that point they made - they got very little into the predators themselves. It seemed to be find a victim and then rail against porn/whatever it is you are against. Using this scenario, perhaps sexual predators are the only ones who are fair game.
I'll stand up for pervs. I assume most 'sexual predators' are young men who've had affairs with underage girls a few years younger than themselves. Or the sort of 'to kill a mocking bird scenario' (one that used to be quite the rage among the in crowd) of a couple making out, and then upon being discovered, one party crying 'rape' in order to preserve their reputation/love/time free of grounding.Read more ›
