I have serious issues with the industry. I think that most people never consider the people involved, and even fewer use ethical porn sources. I think many people use it in an addictive manner.

Against. I also think MacKinnon and Dworkin have written a lot of intelligent analysis on the subject. I don't think their legal approach was sound, but their analysis was right on.

I know that the "I'm soooooooooooooooooooo sexxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx pozzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzative!" cops will show up to roll their eyes at me now, but whatever. If porn is the greatest thing ever, surely it can stand up to some criticism.

Incidentally, I didn't vote in the poll because none apply. I'd say that most porn is made unethically, but that is distinct from "immoral."

I voted for YOU porn because mine wasn't really on there.

I say any kind of porn is okay. Of course I'm not into the "freaky" kind...but to each their own. I'm okay with any of it.

You need more choices:

Being seeexxxxxxxxxxxxxx possssssssssssitive and all, I'd like a choice something along the lines of: I like what I like, and you like what you like (or don't) and we'll all be adults in our own homes about it.

I want to know why BDSM is linked with bestiality in the poll. I claim discrimination!

I would vote for something like "Most pornography is produced through unethical means and its imagery contributes grossly to the dehumanization of women and other oppressed groups." I don't focus on what we should do about it legally, more on the ethical wrongs and bringing those facts to light. Which is difficult to do when most people see it only from the consumer end and think porn is this light, campy fun subject.

should I have use *or* instead of *and*? Or can we assume that most animals are not willing partners.

Another pet peeve: the opposite of anti-porn is pro-pron. The opposite of pro-porn is NOT anti-sex, and the opposite of anti-porn is NOT pro-sex. Sex and porn are completely different things. Also, a lot of people who are anti-porn are pro-GLBT (or ARE GLBT) so I don't appreciate any conflations of being pro-porn and being "tolerant" or anti-porn and "narrow-minded/bigoted."

Um there is a limit to the number of spaces/characters allowed in a poll option.

I'm of the opinion ( although I know for a fact some disagree with me BTDT) that animals are UNable to consent to acts with humans. Unlike BDSM pron, especially the amateur stuff

Um, whatever. I don't take MDC polls so seriously that I HAVE to have them altered so I can vote in them.

This poll is just about porn, not about sex.

Yeah, but it always, always goes there. The whole "well I'm sex positive! And I'm not afraid of naked people! So there!"

I wasn't criticizing I just need your help shortening the choice so it can be added.
