Here’s a short essay by our awesome new volunteer Taylor, on why he’s a man against pornography and prostitution! :-)
“Why would a man be against pornography and prostitution? Some may be opposed to pornography and prostitution from a religious perspective, viewing nudity as obscene or immoral. Other men might be against pornography and prostitution from the standpoint of someone struggling with addiction. After all, the instant gratification which they provide can be extremely addicting! It can definitely take control over some men’s lives.
But neither of these reasons explain why I am opposed to pornography and prostitution. I do not view nudity as inherently obscene, and as an atheist, I am not religiously averse to healthy premarital sex or healthy sex without the intention of procreation. Pornography and prostitution, however, are not healthy sex. And although I did use pornography prior to seriously considering the reasons why I shouldn’t, I was never an addict.
I am opposed to pornography and prostitution, not for religious or personal reasons, but because they are harmful to women and to society as a whole. The main reason for this is that they objectify women. We have all heard this term, but how many of us have really taken the time to think about what it means? Women are half of the population, and when men view women as commodities to be bought and sold (as is the case with pimps and pornography producers), or rented (as is the case with johns and pornography users), it serves only to divide.”
