Okay, so we all know how common pornography is on the Internet.
It's practically everywhere you turn.
Now, porn isn't something I've ever looked into very far...it was mostly background noise.
At times pornography was something to laugh at between a few teenagers, like myself, growing up in an interesting environment, so what do I know about
porn? Maybe I'm missing the romance in it...but I kindly doubt it.
I would never have thought about how dangerous pornography could be to human morals and standards till I did some research.
This is not meant to offend regular porn users.
Grown men and women may do whatever they want for that same reason; they're grown. So I couldn't care less as long they keep it to themselves and
don't act on it.
This is more geared towards the immature and addicted.
For those people, it is the most dangerous.
I'm just pointing out some awful flaws and I will much appreciate your opinion at the end.
Now, whether you have an addiction to it or not, this is good to analyze:
It has become obvious that porn has affected several parts of the world and is way too over rated.
But it's harmless, right?
I don't know, let's think about this:
Kids, still in mental development, are bringing their sexual confusion to all new lengths.
Porn makes people look at their partners differently and over time, porn takes out any possible romance or sensitivity throughout the act. It's bound
to wear off on a few people eventually, especially the kids. Growing up, what you are surrounded with is a big part of shaping your character.
There are different scenarios in porn, different things meant for "harmless fun" while rape in America has shot up over the years. As has the
population, so it might be hard to blame it on porn...but let's face it, you know that there are sick people, gullible people who really want to act
on what they saw in a movie.
Yes, I'm implying that pornography is a large problem in poisoning minds.
It may not be the cause of all rape, and it may not cause every person to rape someone, but let's keep reading on. There is, indeed, a problem with
Now, let's just sit and think for a second...
not only is there porn to encourage this, but there are several things in modern culture to encourage insensitivity towards women, towards sex, such
as music videos, lyrics...which are as common and easy to get as pornography,
but I'm going to put my money on pornography being the biggest part of this ongoing terror in the world.
PLEASE READ ON:
In the United States, 1.3 women are raped every minute. That results in 78 rapes each hour, 1872 rapes each day, 56160 rapes each month, and 683,280
rapes each year.
1 out of every 3 American women will be sexually assaulted in her lifetime.
The United States has the world's highest rape rate of the countries that publish such statistics. It's 4 times higher than Germany, 13 times higher
than England, and 20 times higher than Japan.
1 in 7 women will be raped by her husband.
83% of rape cases are ages 24 or under.
1 in 4 college women have either been raped or suffered attempted rape.
1 in 12 males students surveyed had committed acts that met the legal definition of rape. Furthermore, 84% of the men who had committed such acts said
what they had done was definitely not rape.
75% of male students and 55% of female students involved in acquaintance rape had been drinking or using drugs.
Only 16% of rapes are ever reported to the police.
These are kids, kids getting raped, kids raping other kids, babies.
Obviously this is not healthy. There is a cause, and it isn't just over population(although I wouldn't mind the world being nuked and taking care of
all of us and the entire population problem), pornography poses a very big threat.
I don't know about you, but I'm sickened and angry from this.
Please feel free to express your own disgust or happiness from this.
Share some information with me, if you'd like(for instance, how much money pornography pulls in).
Your opinion matters and it is what could change the world.
