    Say what?
    Where did you go to school, a seminary?
    I have no recollection of any such thing.

    The media teaches young girls to be very sexy but not sexual--we actually teach girls to be cockteases, and then talk shit about them when they actually have sex.

    There's nothing more unbalanced than supreme court justices who are extremists.

    I prefer moderate supremies. They render more objective opinions.
    As to the OP. There are far more important things to regulate than the porn industry.
    Now if anyone wants to get into some serious shit,
    I'd jump all over the corruption of the FDA in bed with the drug companies.

    Someone needs to regulate the regulators.
    If this is the best of possible worlds, what then are the others?

    That's true, but we also have zoning laws and the like. You're going to have a hard time opening a strip club next to a preschool. I probably wouldn't support any stricter laws regarding distribution, but I can see some benefits in making it easier for parents to limit childrens' access to porn.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Anyway, I don't believe in most types of regulation. Left to their own devices, the porn industry has basically regulated itself. Enough with the government babysitting. There is nothing wrong with pornography.
    Yeah you're right the 95% is bullshit. I made it up. Just Ne on a rant, I picked a random number just to indicate that it's a disconcerting're totally right that 95% is ridiculous though, my bad. /

    But surely you acknowledge that ENTP women are not exactly typical.

    I expect you have far more reasonable views on quite a wide range of issues than do the majority of women in this country. In fact, I already know it just from talking to you...but this particular mentality regarding sex is far more widespread than it should be, imho.

    Granted, it's biologically reasonable that women should be somewhat more selective in terms of mating, but that doesn't excuse the outright guilt tripping that many women give men just for wanting sex with them.

    Here's a good Ni exercise: How often do you see a girl hit on a guy and get obnoxiously rejected? I'm sure it happens, but not nearly as often as the other way around. As I said, the media teaches girls to be cockteases and to have an elitist attitude about who's "worthy" of their sexual graces. Having healthy enough self-esteem to not just sleep with any random person is fine and good, but this goes beyond that and seems to give certain girls a sense of sexual narcissism.

    As a guy, when a girl hits on me I'm flattered and I make an effort to be really polite about it if I'm not interested. Even if she's openly sexual about it, it's simply not interpreted as an attempt to take advantage of me. Not by her, not by me, and certainly not by any bystanders. (In fact, if she's intoxicated, there's a good chance people are thinking to themselves, "Gosh, how silly of her! She's going to get TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF when that guy has sex with her!")

    But if I walk up to her with a cheesy sexual innuendo pickup line, I'm sure as hell not getting laid tonight, and there's a fairly decent chance I'll get a loud, nasty verbal rejection, just to add insult to injury.

    Honestly, from a straight male standpoint this can be pretty's definitely there.

    I shit you not, there is actually a law on the books in Georgia that says a woman who's above the legal limit on alcohol is incapable of legally consenting to sex. That's right, if you're a woman in Georgia and you get drunk and have sex, legally you were automatically raped. How's THAT for perspective?
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?
