Towards a new, anti-pornography culture

I know this may seem a bit off topic with respect to this blog, but I was so deeply impressed by this article that I could not help but post it.

Professor Dines  has taken on this huge subject in a bold, comprehensive fashion and I hope we will hear a lot more from her on it!  I think that her insight into the distorting effects of internet pornography on perceptions and behavior also helps us to understand more about the extreme dangers to young people who find themselves in situations of vulnerability.  She is also very compelling on the idea that we are allowing children to be inundated by these “toxic messages”, while doing very little about it. Bravo, Professor Dines!
