Blah. PHIL paper is drafted...

...now I just have to edit it. :p

Basically, it's 5 pages worth of "Porn is not bad, mkay?". The paper-I'm-responding-to's-author's argument is that Porn is bad because it causes people to have bad attitudes towards women in society. Or something. Yet she herself admits there's no data about porn's effects at a societal level.

How can you claim porn is bad when you have no data? Um, oops... :p

I get grumpy when people try to take my porn away (which I don't look at/read very often anyway). Me grumpy == less-happy society.

It's even more amusing when they try to take it away because it's hurting women. Um, hello? My porn doesn't even have women in it. (Hahaha. Pwned. :P)

(Well, OK, maybe some of it does, here and there. But really, it's more guys than girls.)

Anyway, yeah. I'm just being silly. Nobody's trying to take *my* porn away. But as a general rule, it still bugs me when somebody says "Society should(n't) do X!" without thinking about the fact that "X" is a broad, sweeping generalization to which their reasoning doesn't actually apply in a lot of cases anyway.

Time to step away from the Von Neumann-induced crack (also known as the computer) and stretch for a bit.
