Be Afraid. Be Very Afraid.

“America is suffering a pandemic of harm from pornography.  A wealth of research is now available demonstrating that pornography causes profound brain changes in both children and adults, resulting in widespread negative consequences. Addiction to pornography is now common for adults and even for some children. The average age of first exposure to hard-core, Internet pornography is now 11. Pornography is toxic to marriages and relationships. It contributes to misogyny and violence against women.  It is a contributing factor to prostitution and sex trafficking.”

-2012 GOP Presidential Candidate Rick Santorum. Source.

 

Given that Mr. Santorum is visiting my fair state of Arizona today, I felt it apropos to remind everyone that Spreading Santorum is still numero uno on the Google.  

He scares me.

    Did you ever think Santorum and some leading democrats/feminists would ever be on the same page?

    Dr. Gail Dines – “To be anti-porn is a progressive principle”

    Some of the signatories asking for more prosecutions, stating:
    “We know more than ever how illegal adult obscenity contributes to violence against women, addiction, harm to children, and sex trafficking. This material harms individuals, families, and communities and the problems are only getting worse”
    Senator Dianne Feinstein (D)
    Senator Joe Lieberman (D)
    Senator Amy Klobuchar (D)
    Senator Tom Carper (D)
    Senator Bob Nelson (D)

    Okay, not really surprised they are all in agreement on this one. It’s a “issue” that gets support from people on both sides for different reasons.

    Don’t know if this adds anything new, but it made me raise an eyebrow.
