No, because drunk driving causes actual damage and death.
strawman..shame on you.
And pornography does not? Let us consider that physical is not the only form of damage which can be caused; factor in psychological, emotional, and
spiritual. Simply because wounds cannot be physically observed through your senses, does not mean it is any less important. As for death, I agree that
pornography does not cause death and that my analogy was not a perfect one but I was rushing.
Actually, it doesn't matter if your convinced or not..can't argue numbers and simple facts.
You can not believe in facts, hell, you don't have to believe in gravity..but that doesn't mean it isn't true
I was not attempting to argue against your numbers and facts. They are presumably true. My point was not whether or not the facts are accurate but
whether we should even consider those facts in drawing our conclusions about the net good. For example, we could say that cloning is a technological
breakthrough resulting from years of scientific progress; but does that make cloning (human cloning I mean) a net good? It violates the natural order
of things, thus the natural good, so it is a net harm.
Rape has been the staplemark of all civilizations since the dawning of time.
civilizations, but yes it has been a frequent event, experiencing highs and lows, for thousands of years. My point was that under our

One thing that the sex revolution has allowed is for people to not feel ashamed about it.
And I give credit where credit is due. There are a few, very few, positive attributes which have resulted from the Cultural Revolution; this being one
Rape is a crime of power, not passion. A person whom wants to simply get off...well, they got porn for that.
A person whom wants to control a situation and another, to harm a woman based on whatever is going on in their past, they will rape, fight, or
otherwise do harm to another.
No, I don't blame rape on women being too sexy. I am sorry if you do.
How did I blame it on women “being too sexy”? I never once said that just because a woman is beautiful she is asking to be raped. My remark was
pertaining to those women who wear, as I said in my previous post, ‘promiscuous dress’. Even then they do not want to be raped. It is like when
you hear a story of a man being hit by a bus after walking into traffic, you do not say that he wanted to get hit by a bus or that he deserved to be
hit by the bus, rather that if you walk in traffic, do not be surprised if a bus hits you.
