Florida House declares pornography as a health risk
The state's House of Representatives approved the resolution by a voice vote on Tuesday. The resolution states a need for education, research and policy changes to protect Floridians, especially teenagers, from pornography.
Republican Rep. Ross Spano says there is research that finds a connection between pornography use and mental and physical illnesses, forming and maintaining intimate relationships and deviant sexual behavior. Spano is also a candidate for attorney general.
Okay, first - obligatory masturbation joke.
Second... you're telling me that you're going to require education, research, and policy changes on PORN and not THE FUCKING GUNS THAT KEEP MASS MURDERING YOUR CITIZENS?????
Announce a march on this guy's house to drag him out by the lower lip and beat him to death with baseball bats and I'll buy the ticket to Florida tomorrow.
Third, this is going to hurt sex workers. I'm not against education on porn to protect people from being fooled into thinking real sex is like that, from viewing women as less than human, from becoming addicted to it, and from being exploited and harmed by the porn industry should they choose to work in porn. But fat fucking chance any of that will happen. I'm guessing this "education" is going to be some Evangelical Christian "porn is evil and touching your devil meat makes Jesus cry" shit.
I hate you, Ross. I hate you so much.
