Its their fault for being so weak and for having such a narrow view on their body and their peers' acceptance.

Porn isn't harmful, its just that stupid people who think its bad want their views and opinions to stand out above anybody else's thoughts to feel important. Its almost like abortion.

I vote Harmless!
of course if I would have written this I would have gotten flamed but I agree .

It's not that it's degrading to the person doing it. It's that it reinforces objectification of women and false impressions of what they want sexually.

So basically what you are saying Davo is that degradation is completely made up because the "degradee" degrades themselves and reinforces the negative view of themselves.

Did i get that right?

No. Consenting to something doesn't mean it isn't happening (barring things defined by lack of consent).

Porn is good and for me I see nothing bad about it...whenever someone says porn is horrible I think they are going out of their way to look for negative aspects of it... illogical distortion...I have a friend who used to think it was bad and I said "an Opinion must have a reason right?" ...he would just get upset at me....Huh? There is no reasoning with people in that set of mind...influencing alteration of thoughts is often futile... but hey it did something because I downloaded porn for him the other day...it was softcore but nonetheless porno...lol
I love my Astro A40 Mixamp... Headphone surround FTW

Pornography is only harmful in the way general media is, which is through an unrealistic portrayal of men/woman. And even then it's still no reason to be against it because fantasy is a major factor in porn, and therefore those unrealistic images are necessary.
