    Va lawmaker proposes bill to declare porn a ‘public health hazard’ - iblackvoices.com

    Virginia lawmaker proposes bill to declare porn a ?public health hazard? | Black Voices News

    This delegate is from the county where I live (someone I may have voted for too). I originally heard about this on the radio, and what I found amusing about it is that what it mentioned as part of the argument or appeal, something to the effect that it could result in lesser court convictions in relevant cases such as date rape & sex abuse (at least that's the impression I got from what I recall hearing); unfortunately I couldn't find an online source that replicates that particular point.

    The reason I find it amusing is because of a certain "It goes far, but does it go far enough?" angle. What I means is if porn needs to be declared a health hazard, what about media with physical violence? Do TV shows, movies, music, and video games that have physical violence content also need to be declared a health hazard for similar reasons? What about TV shows and movies that have something like government corruption plots or content? Should steps that may lead to the censorship of movies & TV shows about corrupt politicians also be taken? We wouldn't want juries to be more lenient with corrupt politicians, now would we?

    BTW, of the thousands of online search result sources I could've used to reference this story, I chose the one I posted to taunt a couple of racist folks on purpose. I'm going to do this whenever the opportunity arises. The relentless racist crap staining this forum is - I admit - very irritating to me. If this means I'm triggered oh well so be it.

    "racist crap staining this forum".....

    Agreed; Its gotten rather ugly around here of late. My suspicion is that these folks likely got banned from another site (s) and have descended upon this place.....simply 'because of the resistance' expected, the debate to be taken on.

    Alas, I fell into the trap that was in hindsight, purposely set, and mistakenly fed the Beast..... Am I giving them too much credit? Perhaps....but I'm kicking myself for 'forgetting' some lessons learned long ago (its quite difficult On Line, as I'm finding out)

    I'm a pretty quick learner though....so hopefully it won't happen again, despite a personal (maybe slightly twisted?) desire to engage with lunatics from time time....trying to see what makes them tick.

    I guess Its just the Psychologist in me....

    Anyhow....Good to 'see' your voice....always happy to read your insights, those I may agree with and those I may not...

    "The bill does not call for a porn ban, only the need for education, research, and policy change to address the “public health crisis.”

    Sure why wouldn't that work?

    So Porn is causing our Public Health Crisis? That's the best they could come up with

    Just sounds like more hyperbole to me. I think these Politicians are the real Public Health Crisis if you ask me.

    HAPPY NEW YEARS EVERYONE !!!

    You see? This is what I meant about ad hominems. You're attacking the person, not the argument... and you're doing it to stigmatize other members to rally the mob against them.

    When presented with the subject of censoring racist speech, you offered several alternatives:

Point out the fallacies and other problems in their arguments and claims. Point out how the stuff they try to present as studies are biased, full of cherry picked examples, etc. It's not going to get through to everyone, but it'll get through to the bulk of people. The remaining individuals who it doesn't get through to will be a tiny, harmless, insignificant group of individuals who'll socially outcast themselves; it'll be their choice and if they want to deprive themselves like that, then just let them. When they grow up and act like normal adults they can rejoin the rest of the population of normal adults, when they're read to do so.
    So many options....

    Or you could demonize and taunt them like a "grownup" without offering logical rebuttal, to wit:

    Taunt how? Post something from a black site that has nothing to do with racism? That taunting isn't daunting and wouldn't have been noticed if you hadn't flaunted it.

    Why not go head-to-head armed with legitimate concerns instead of sniping from the shadows with unsubstantiated defamation in random sections of the forum in an effort to rally the mob by stigmatizing folks as "racist" who merely recognize racial differences supported by mounds of scientific evidence and have expressed no hatred for anyone... other than ideological bigots desiring to preserve their "right" to spew unchallenged "fake news".

    For what it's worth, which apparently is diddly to this mob of pigeon-holers, my personal views about race have been on display here: Accidental (or intentional) injuries and compensation

    Officially, I see no trouble in recognizing racial differences while also maintaining friendships with those of different races and any statement to the contrary could only have slanderous intent.

    So if you have trouble with any of the published research,,, maybe a flaw in procedure or a random sample that wasn't, or perhaps some of that cherry-picking you were on about, then present your case. Posting "racists have lower IQs" with broken links and no data to analyze or posting health hazards of porn from a black site as a method of taunting only displays that you can't win by reason and need to appeal to the mob.

    If this means I'm triggered oh well so be it.
    Aye! It's a pity you were born just a century or two too late for the witch hunts.
