8. "So how does that fit into your "rape culture" theory?"
You mean that some men did a study that showed that porn has no effects.

I don't think that necessarily means anything.

And from someone who is proud of selling porn - it means even less.

"But it didn't, of course, and some lab studies did show that exposure to especially violent or degrading porn beefed up male aggressiveness toward women, though a link with actual crime was tough to prove.

But Hald...says, I strongly believe social context norms are factors influencing the effects of pornography and consumption rates.


So that really isn't proving your point. He may be suggesting the porn is part of the larger society - which I agree with. That doesn't mean it doesn't contribute to the rape culture.
