PHOENIX (AP) — More than a dozen states have moved to declare pornography a public health crisis, raising concerns among some experts who say the label goes too far and carries its own...

[And porn isn’t like a deadly virus, she said.

“If you stub your toe, that might be something you can’t solve yourself, but that doesn’t make it a public health issue,” Rothman said..]

Porn isn't like a deadly virus but it is like stubbing your toe since stubbing your toe can be addictive I suppose.

Something that doesn't make sense to me: Why is zoophile porn legal in all but one state while beastiality is a felony in several states? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legality_of_bestiality_in_the_United_States

There are three legal tests for judging whether something is obscene and one legal test for judging whether something is considered symbolic speech protected under the first amendment.

As to symbolic speech and the O'brien test you can find information here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_v._O'Brien https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symbolic_speech

Would regulatory laws "further an important or substantial government interest" and would interest in these laws be "unrelated to the suppression of speech?"

[For those outside of New England, let me tell you about the infamous public enemy, Suffolk County DA Rachael Rollins. In March, she ordered her employees to monitor and snitch on federal ICE officers hanging around any courthouse while trying to do their jobs. She is overseeing a radical “restorative justice” agenda to decrease arrests, detentions and prosecutions for both citizens and noncitizens. Our office, she announced, “will begin to factor into all charging and sentencing decisions the potential of immigration consequences.”

Let me translate that for you: If foreign adults commit crimes that would separate them from their families and lead to imprisonment and deportation, DA Rollins will drop charges or shorten sentences in the name of social justice — the law-abiding victims of these criminal immigrants be damned.]

Nicholas Fuentes, who hosts a talk show on YouTube called America First was featured in an upcoming MTV New documentary highlighting racism in America.  The most glaring flaw in this stretch by MTV is that

I've only seen a short clip of the MTV documentary which shows a bald, former Nazi with a neck tattoo reacting to a clip featuring Fuentes. The implication seems to be that if the former Nazi is amazed and disgusted by what he sees in Nick then Nick must really be a bad guy.

Online porn is bad. For starters, there is the clear exploitation and links to human trafficking, which belie the libertarians’ glib slogans about “consenting adults.”

[OK, online porn is bad, critics of prohibition may admit — but why can’t parents do their job and police it? This is the most infuriating of their responses.

Of course, I’ll do my damnedest to keep my son away from smut, but there are numerous situations where I can’t control his Internet activities. And what about parents who are neglectful: Does the state not have some duty to protect all children from a supremely addictive product that can twist their sexuality?]

It's obvious that the existence of modern technology makes parents' job of policing pornography a lot harder than before. Maybe that can't be fully appreciated if one can't imagine a world without the internet, cell phones and tablets. Think about what it would take for one random kid from a neglectful and disengaged family to share or distribute pornography in or out of school during the 80s. Information couldn't 'go viral' at that time.

If anyone wants an example of what you can readily find on twitter I can provide a link.
