13. No no no, I don't mean that *you're* constructing simplistic, strawman arguments.

I was referring to porn obsessed people who insist that anyone who is anti porn wants it banned, thinks everyone involved is a victim, etc. It's their way of avoiding any nuance, so they can pretend it's all black and white. Puritans vs. freedom fighters for the vagina trade.

I'm not saying that no one who is anti-porn and anti-prostitution thinks the same way you do, just that it's not an accurate description of everyone who is anti-porn and anti-prostitution.

I think there is merit to your arguments. We won't ever know until we destroy the patriarchy, though. After we've done that, we can find out.

You might find this interesting. http://www.thehousegroup.org/archive/res_how_prostitution_works.pdf
