Idiot Virginia Legislator Coming After Your Porn

OK, not quite, but my favorite uber-religious nutbar Bob Marshall, who is famous for using the government to sniff around in your pants, now wants to use taxpayer dollars for “education, research, and policy change to address the public health crisis.”

“When you see more of these episodes of teens texting pictures to each other, there’s obviously an obsession or fixation on the body as an object, not a person,” Marshall said in a recent interview with GayRVA. “It’s not very helpful for social relations or later development of a family. I thought, lets draw a line in the sand.”

Marshall says early exposure to pornography leads to low self-esteem and body image disorders in young people.

Whenever petty tyrants in three-piece suits seek to infringe on our freedoms via government force, they always seek to create a crisis. Whether it’s the “epidemic” of “gun violence,” which is a transparently stupid manipulation of weak minds to instill fear in the ignorant and uninformed, or precious snowflakes venting their angst on suicide hotlines, because they’re too weak understand and respect our system of government, everything that power-hungry statists want the government to address by force becomes a “public health crisis.”

derp-to-potatoBob Marshall’s particular brand of DERPITUDE has everything to do with where adults insert their sexual organs. Whether it’s attempting to ban gays from serving openly in the Virginia National Guard, because apparently, they’re just not going to be able to resist inserting their penises into their buddies in the shower, or blocking a stellar prosecutor from serving as district court judge, because said stellar prosecutor is open about his committed relationship to another man (and ostensibly sticks his penis into said man), or claiming “sodomy is not a civil right,” showing just how little he knows about the nature of civil rights, Bob Marshall loves to launch government assaults on the privacy and fundamental rights of the individual.

When it comes to derp, Bob Marshall is the herpes of the Virginia House of Delegates – the gift that keeps on giving.

If Bob Marshall’s theocratic sensibilities are offended, he wants everyone else to be prevented from doing it.

This time it’s porn.

Now, let me say this up front. There’s a lot of really bad stuff associated with pornography. Some innocents are forced into it by traffickers, pedophiles, and organized criminals for profit.

But a crime is a crime, and forcing someone into porn, or prostitution, or drugs against their will, or when they are unable to consent, is a crime. Period. No matter what activity is involved in said force. Child pornography is illegal – and for good reason – these scumbags use authority, pressure, and outright force to rape children. There’s no hole dank enough for these depraved, cro-magnon turds!

So let’s talk about the effects of pornography on normal human beings. Having read a bit on the subject, I have to say that the portrayal of pornography as addictive, or in some way turning the consumer into a victim, is absolute garbage. Psychology Today confirms this assessment. Porn is not the problem, you are!

The media and American society have accepted that sex and porn are addictive, because it seems intuitively true – we all feel like sometimes, we might do something stupid or self-destructive, when sex is involved. But, this false belief is dangerous, and ultimately not helpful. Because when people buy into the belief that porn is addictive, it changes the argument, and all of a sudden, it seems like it is porn and sex that are the problems. Porn addiction becomes a label, and seems to be an explanation, when in fact, it is just meaningless words and platitudes that distract from the real issue. But sex and porn aren’t the problems. You are.

Research shows that women actually have a stronger physiological response to pornography than men, although women respond differently than men do – rather than respond to the sex of the actors depicted in the stimuli, women respond differently to context. How else does one explain the success of the horribly-written, housewife porn “Fifty Shades of Grey”?

Research also shows that the availability of pornography does not result in greater instances of sex crimes.

In fact, research shows only roughly 1 percent of people report problems in their lives caused by out of control sexual behaviors. Given the widespread availability of pornography, one would expect that number to be higher if porn truly has a deleterious effect on people’s lives, as the theocrats claim.

Porn does not make you change your values.

It does not make you a better or worse person than you already were.

And if it were as addictive as the theocrats claim, porn addiction would be prevalent in the United States, given its wide availability and its prevalence on the Internet. You would be hard pressed to find any American who hasn’t seen pornography at least once, and the only people who seem to use “addiction” as an excuse are the ones who cheat on their spouses, who commit sex crimes, and who destroy themselves.

To me, this is the ultimate abdication of personal responsibility!

And besides having zero respect for privacy and property rights of the individual (yes, our bodies are the ultimate in private property!), small-minded bigots like Bob Marshall, have zero tolerance for those who choose not to genuflect in front of his sky elf as he does, or behave in a manner allegedly proscribed by said elf.

Bob Marshall doesn’t want gay people to be active members of society, to serve in the armed forces, or in any other governmental capacity. He is, in fact, obsessed with anything having to do with other people’s sexual behavior.

This is a frothing ass canoe who opposed  providing emergency contraception to college students (you know – in case one of them gets raped or something – because THAT never happens!), claiming that it will turn women into “chemical Love Canals for frat house playboys,” and sought to bar all Virginia public schools from providing it to rape victims.

This is an unhinged, statist turd who sought to prevent single women from getting pregnant via artificial insemination using government force, because there was no penis present to impregnate them. Bob doesn’t like anything but a penis-vagina combination, apparently.

And Bob Marshall is such a frothing fundamentalist fruitcake, that he has actually claimed that disabled children are God’s punishment to mothers who have formerly had abortions. The outcry was so great, that the idiot had to back off and apologize, claiming he didn’t mean it.

Now he has set his sights on pornography, because it’s just another thing that his deity forbids, and therefore he thinks everyone else should be deprived of it too. So of course, he wants to use money the rest of us earned to promote his religious mores and impose them on the rest of us.

derpRob says Marshall is a rock star in the Virginia legislature when it comes to protection of property rights. I would submit that anyone who cannot comprehend or respect the very basic property right to one’s own body cannot possibly be trusted to protect any other right we may hold dear.
Here’s hoping saner minds in the Virginia legislature prevail, because this shit pickle will continue wasting time and taxpayer resources to infringe on the basic rights of all Virginians.

Better yet, send Derpy the Wonder Spud packing.

  3. I’d be willing to bet heavily that he has many, many porn bookmarks in his browser of choice. In my experience, people conflate the challenges they personally struggle to overcome as challenges everyone struggles to overcome.

    So as a for instance, an individual who experiences racism or prejudice will go on to claim that such prejudice is far more widespread than it actually is. No reasonable person will say that racism and prejudice don’t exist, but to claim that America is more racist now than it was 50+ years ago is just ludicrous.

    So this jackwagon probably can’t go a day without fapping himself raw. Thus he assumes that since no amount of lube will soothe his chafed chub, this is a societal, rather than an individual, problem.

  5. I would like to point out that even IF porn was addictive, that should not justify a ban. A lot of people consume , say, alcohol, which is definitly and clearly addictive and physiologically harmfull, as a recreational drug without any noticeable adverse impact on their lives.
    So, while interesting, i am kinda not onboard with using this state of research as a counter argument to banning porn. Even if it WAS addictive the vast majority of people in areas with internet acess consume it without any major disturbances in their lives so the sensible use remains a question of responsibility in any case.

    Sorry for venting. I had a rather heated argument about legalising cannabin yesterday.

  6. Oh, for Pete’s sake! This guy makes my ass twitch! You have to ask right off the starting block what is he really hiding? Once that question is answered – and I’d be happy to waterboard him to find out – we can all get on with our lives. My guess would be that Mommy caught him doing something naughty with one of his sister’s dollies (if he has a sister) and smacked him silly for it. Or maybe it was getting caught monkeying around with one of the neighborhood boys in the garage.

    If we’re going to discuss porn, you would have to go back to the 1930s, when Henry Miller’s ‘Tropic of Cancer’ was banned for being too lascivious, along with other books.

    https://www.nypl.org/blog/2013/09/25/banned-books-week-tropic-cancer

    The ban wasn’t lifted until the mid-1960s. It is rough, and nasty and follows Henry’s literary adviser’s comment: “Write as you talk. Write as you live. Write as you feel and think.” Better advice was never given.

    No one now would think twice about someone publishing a story about a man walking around with a bone on, but it was ‘shocking’ until thirty years later, when the ban was lifted. Henry Miller was and remains a brilliant writer. I like ‘Colossus of Maroussi’ better than ‘Tropic of Cancer’, but that’s just me. If I want porn, I can buy romance novels which are a lot more graphic than anything Henry ever wrote. But if I want to know how a man really views sex, I’d read Henry’s books months ahead of anything else.

    This toad-eating ninnyhammer is hiding something. It may be just as nasty as the egregious things the Catholic Church hid for decades until they were sued over it. Someone should sue Marshall’s ass right into the ground on the simple basis of invading privacy and denying health care rights to women. Our bodies belong to us, not to the state.

    I’d say he’s probably as prejudiced against women as anyone can be. I hope someone tells him to fuck off before long. I’d bet he cries if he gets punched in a fist fight with a girl.

    I feel a whole lot better now. Happy New Year!!!!

        1. Well… See, Rob knows how despicable I find this theocratic dick monkey, so he didn’t tell me he was to be the featured speaker at the ACRC meeting. So when I got there, and saw him take the podium, I was a little shocked, to say the least.

          We were sitting in the front, and while he spoke, I kept throwing him dirty looks – the kind of looks that would result in weeping wounds had they been blades. He looked really confused as he spoke. Uncertain. He kept speaking, but every time he looked at me there in the front row, I gave him a look that would make a bird fall out of the sky, and he would get this really befuddled look on his face.

          After the speech was over, he walked past us, and sat in the back, at which point, I would turn around and glare at him. He looked at me several times, trying to understand why this chick was throwing him death stares – in an ostensibly friendly, Republican venue.

          At the end of the meeting, I went over to the sign-in table, and as I headed back, I saw Bob heading toward me with this look that said, “I’m going to ask her what’s up.” So I headed directly toward him, with that glare one has when they’re about to club a gigantic spider. He literally saw the look on my face, and sharply veered to his left to an aisle between the seats, and ran away.

          I guess this dick pickle cannot possibly fathom that someone could dislike him that much.

  8. Interesting article, some people and their prohibitions are really out there.

    Based on how I’ve seen people’s reaction to porn, it tends to go in a bell curve/spike type of thing….highly addictive/erotic at first (the new “wow” factor), and then sort of boring/numb, where they either have to view something different or it’s essentially as exciting as watching an exercise video.

    “Research shows that women actually have a stronger physiological response to pornography than men, although women respond differently than men do – rather than respond to the sex of the actors depicted in the stimuli, women respond differently to context. How else does one explain the success of the horribly-written, housewife porn “Fifty Shades of Grey”?”

    Fifty Shades of Grey was pretty crappy, in retrospect. I read it and was disappointed (did not feel aroused once!). I’ve seriously read better fanfiction out there, which is as of yet unpublished, while FSOG went on to make heaps of money.

    Psychology sources I’ve seen have indicated that women tend to focus on the emotional aspects of relationships and erotica, while men focus on the physical. So that statement that women have a stronger type of response to porn is something I find surprising.

  9. Go look at this graph: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rape_statistics#/media/File:Rapes_per_1000_people_1973-2003.jpg

    Notice how it is initially a steady(ish) trend until the late 1970s, then a downward trend begins. Then there’s a brief spike about 1992, and then the downward trend continues but more steeply.

    What happened? Well, home VCRs started becoming affordable in the late 1970s, with the price dropping over the next 10 years until nearly everyone had one in their home. And so people could rent or buy their porn videos instead of going to an “adult” theater. Then in 1992, both the world wide web was started with the definition of hypertext, and DVDs became available. Now people can download porn on their computer, and don’t even have to talk to someone to buy or rent it. Did this contribute to a reduction in the rape rate? I have no idea, but I find the timing intriguing.
