720. I didn't say I found that in your posts
I'm referring to the larger issue of pornography which the OP featuring the cartoon addresses.

A goodly amount of pornography depicts violence against women...Where it's not physically violent,

it's psychologically violent with titles like "Teen Sluts" and "Dirty Ghetto Girls"...I saw this

last one, an unsolicited "ad" for porn, quite by accident when I turned on my PPV channel

last week.

It seems the porn makers have upped the ante...It's not now limited

to showing sex, including the violent kind, it now seeks

want to degrade the subjects verbally too....So, yes, I

think this type of porn (and there's lots of it) IS harmful.

Openly denigrating females as "dirty sluts"

is anti-female, anti-social and therefore

"harmful" to women and girls.

P.S. You might want to ask me about the studies

done years ago (sans name-calling) which showed the change

in attitude toward women that males

experience after watching violent porn.
