Mormon Founders Launch 'Porn Kills Love' Campaign In SF


Mormon Founders Launch Porn Kills Love Campaign In SF SFist

But, in fact, this particular group of hipster posers are expressing not just anti-porn, but anti-sex rhetoric, spreading misleading and debunked information, hiding their religious affiliation (its founders are Mormon though they claim the group is not religious), and basically wasting their time and ours.

...

"If you're like me," writes the Bay Area sex and porn blogger Violet Blue, "you're tired of people trying to control our sexuality by telling us what we should or shouldn't enjoy sexually, based on what someone else thinks is best for us. Prevailing conservative attitudes — be they feminist, religious, or other — seem determined to keep us in a perpetual state of being children about sex."

...

"Every time there is a moral panic around porn you hear the same fears about how it’s changing how we interact and it’s changing the family. It just hasn’t happened,” Kink.com spokesperson Mike Stabile, another friend of SFist, said in drawing a comparison with anti-masturbation rhetoric. “They use the same debunked studies over and over again…the science is just not there.”

...

Anyway, look, porn really doesn't need defending, because Jesus, images depicting sex have been around forever, and aren't going to stop, and wanting to see them is totally normal and healthy. So, basically, these guys can go jerk off, or not, but sex-negative proselytizing in the Bay Area is never going to work.

Tell it to Salt Lake City, fools.

I'm sure they believe it.  I guess they really don't believe the experience of others; it doesn't fit their model, so it must be a lie.

Are these the same Mormons that were behind Prop 8?

Or different Mormons?

We are the Bormons.  We will take your distinctiveness and make it part of our own.  We are the Bormons.  ;-)  At least, at some level, they have a sense of humor.
