UK: Pornographic sites should protect kids or be prosecuted, MPs warn

Pornography is at the heart of our social ills

    Paul S. Loverde, bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Arlington, Virginia, at First Things: “Those who deny that the act of viewing pornography has any negative consequences must understand just how toxic the situation has become. . . . The most graphic forms of pornography are now easily and anonymously accessible on the internet and on any smartphone. Many among us are now caught in patterns of addiction that rival those of drugs and alcohol in their grip on the individual, if not in the disruption that results in their lives. Depression, anxiety, isolation, marital strife, and job loss can all be intensified for those caught in the web of this addiction. . . . This addiction is not merely behavioral, a bad habit that can be broken like any other. Chronic viewing of pornographic material impacts one’s brain chemistry in a manner that can “hook” a person and lead to a quest for increasingly lurid forms of pornography.”

Damon Linker: America’s love-hate relationship with pornography

    Damon Linker at The Week: “Unless millennials reverse course as they age (possible but improbable), America’s overall disapproval of porn is likely to decline dramatically over the coming decades. As that happens, the country’s conflicted feelings about it will likely get resolved, too, replaced by an easygoing, non-judgmental acceptance of any and all consensual sexual behavior, very much including the conspicuous consumption of porn.”

House passes Defense bill aimed at blunting sexual assaults

    The Hill: The House on Friday passed a new defense bill that that seeks to reverse an increase in sexual assaults in the military. The sweeping $638 billion bill strips commanders’ ability to overturn guilty verdicts in sexual assault cases, and establishes a minimum sentence of dismissal for sexual assault offenders. It would also expand legal counsel to victims of sexual abuse, and remove service members who have inappropriate relationships with the people they train.
