Porn educates men and women to disrespect women and in fact to disrespect anyone involved in porn. Porn is a form of sexual assault that is like all sexual assaults, rooted in disrespect.
Ben Shapiro on Sexual Harassment "In a society that treats sex as transactional, in a society that basically reduces sex to any sort of just a physical transaction that is based solely on consent it makes it very difficult to explain why it is that the casting couch in Hollywood is bad per se. It is actually like, feminist theory says it is bad because of power imbalances, but the libertarians' culture of the left suggest that power imbalance doesn’t have anything to do with it. If I feel like trading my body for a part in a movie, well that’s my business and if you say differently then you’re slut-shaming me. Right so that, you can’t really have it both ways. Either it’s bad or it’s not bad and if we’re going to fight sexual harassment and sexual assault it seems to me that we have to do a couple of things.
One. We have to reinvest sex with value beyond just a physical transaction. It’s not just two people who are getting each other’s rocks off. It actually means something beyond that. There’s a relationship that’s attached to it and beyond that I think that we need to re-inculcate in men themselves, not just the ‘teach men not to rape routine, again it’s such a weird concept. Like when I was 11, my Dad did not sit me down and say ‘Son, don’t rape people.” If you have to teach your child that then my guess is that you’ve got a bigger problem on your hands.
What my Dad taught me was to be a gentleman and to treat women with respect and that has to do with being a gentleman and recognising differences in sex roles, because one of the things that ‘s happened is that traditional masculinity, the idea that it is a man’s job to protect women, this is one of our jobs as human beings, as men to protect women. The feminist movement doesn’t like that. Well then you can’t blame us for not protecting women if you don’t want us to protect women. I want to protect women. I think men should protect women. I think one of the reasons that God put man on earth was to protect women.
Okay then, it is incumbent of me to protect women but if you’re telling me that I can’t even open the door for a woman because this is somehow an offence to her honour and if I say that it is a man’s job to protect women then this is somehow reinforcing gender stereotypes, then don’t come whining to me when bad stuff happens. Because the answer to bad behaviour is good behaviour. The answer to vice is virtue. The answer to vice isn’t just yelling and hashtagging ...”
