Smut is Bad, M'Kay

Since I can get this book for $3.50, I am going to buy it on a whim. Probably this one, too. Part of my drive is from hearing that "porn" was looking for a bailout, that the modern industry is being crushed by the flood of free smut on the Internet, and the damaging new option of purchasing '70s and early '80s porn on DVD hurts current studios. There is a time and a place for smut, just watch how it influences mainstream culture. My other motivation is the multitude of discussions about and mainstreaming of lower level super grooming by both men & women. I know how too many people keep things downstairs. It makes it awkward for me because my brain is a runaway train, so when I start talking to someone, and they have previously told me how they groom, I end up visualizing it and kind of X-ray visioning it. It's like when someone says they have an awful zit, scar, or bruise, you instinctively look at it. I'm sick in the head, what can I say?

I am a sexist at heart, but raised in a house where the woman was the breadwinner. I look forward to the day when true gender equality is reached, no more engagement rings. As I house hunted this past weekend, I stumbled through the 3rd all pink girl's bedroom that day and said "Feminisim lost didn't it?" My 62 year old female realtor simply said "Yes, but I won't get on my soapbox right now".
