47. I got less than halfway through that thread of...

people with goggles on talking past each other.

Much as I would like to say that there was idiocy on both (I think there were two) sides, it became clear that behind a lot of the anger and (deliberate?) misunderstanding was this deep disturbance about the fact that men do indeed masturbate to depictions of sex, and naked women. For some reason we are designed to get aroused visually and anything can trigger it, with porn having a guarantee when you're in a hurry. I can't help remembering Woody Allen getting a call on Sunday morning-- "What are you doing?" "Just masturbating to the lingerie ads in the NY Times Magazine."

There's also that phenomenon of elderly men suddenly showing an interest in porn, possibly nostalgic for the real thing.

It' complicated, and misplaced angst and anger have mo place in the discussion. Properly placed anger over criminal acts does, of course, but it helps to remember just what those criminal acts are.

BTW, did a few people in that thread just lose a job, a pet, a relative, or something else important? Seems some have a lot of time on their hands to post, and great personal loss would explain the attitude.
