Interesting Perspective!

By Pamela Paul: "Pornified: How Pornography is Transforming our lives, our relationships, and our families"

"Pornography is a moving target and it's time we catch up with it. For years, the pornography industry and the pornified culture have told both men and women who oppose pornography to shut up or turn a blind eye. They have accused anti-pornography activisits, or even those who have dared question their profit equation, of being anti-sex product that limits the freedom of men, women, and children. They have sold America on the idea of fantasy while inciting us to ignore reality. Those who have been silenced have only served to further legitimize pornography with their lack of censure. Those who are now quiet must speak out."

Are we legitimizing pornography with our silence?

Thoughts...?

I believe we are. Not intentionally, of course, but anything flows easier and can become the norm without resistance. I especially liked the part about fantasy causing us to ignore reality. It can cause us at the very least to not appreciate reality and to not deal with reality in a healthy way, as in male-female relationships. And, this can NOT be good. Reality is where we really live (obviously) and any silence that legitimizes not dealing with that in a healthy and forthright manner or that makes us not deal with it much at all is a silence that must be resisted. The potential damage and ripple effects must be acknowledged. Let the discussion begin.
