Holy crap. Congress has way too much time on it’s hands. Don’t they have bigger things to worry about, like war or terror or something? I don’t even know what to quote from that article, it’s such a mass of concentrated stupidity. Let’s see…
Mary Anne Layden, co-director of the Sexual Trauma and Psychopathology Program at the University of Pennsylvania’s Center for Cognitive Therapy, called porn the “most concerning thing to psychological health that I know of existing today.”
Forget mental illness, rampant divorce, child abuse, widespread government and media-sponsored paranoia… net boobies are gonna drive us all mad – MAD, I tell ya!
“Pornography really does, unlike other addictions, biologically cause direct release of the most perfect addictive substance,” Satinover said. “That is, it causes masturbation, which causes release of the naturally occurring opioids. It does what heroin can’t do, in effect.”
So what you’re really saying is that people are addicted to masturbation. I hate to break it to ya, but 99% of the adult male population was addicted to jerking off long before the printing press came along, let alone the internet.
Sen. Sam Brownback (R-Kansas), the subcommitee’s chairman, called the hearing the most disturbing one he’d ever seen in the Senate.
Aaaaah! Do they administer basic sanity tests to these people before electing them?! Children are being starved and enslaved in Sudan, civilians being bombed in Iraq, terrorists are plotting our doom, Adam Sandler is still making movies – and THIS is the most disturbing thing he’s ever seen?! This guy deserves to be recalled for incompetence.
Judith Reisman of the California Protective Parents Association suggested that more study of “erototoxins” could show how pornography is not speech-protected under the First Amendment.
I give up. This is beyond mockery. Worse than crack? These people should know – they’re all clearly on drugs. Just in case you were wondering, the domain name erototoxin.com has already been bought, allthough there doesn’t seem to be anything there.
Look, pornography addiction is real. Some people’s heads really do get messed up by the stuff. But this is rediculous. I would like to think the highest legislative body in the land is occupying it’s time with more pressing threats than “erototoxins” (hey, that might make a good name for a band!).
