Violence And Pornography - 532 words
Is pornography harmful to the human psyche? Interpretations of recent studies on violence and pornography have yielded a wide range of theories on this subject. Victor Cline asserts that there is plenty of evidence showing pornography to be harmful. He believes that it degrades women and desensitizes males to sexual violence (Slife, 270).

Christensen states that pornography has little effect on a persons perception of reality and that it has become a scapegoat for the conflicts between men and women (Slife, 271). After reading both of the passages, I believe that a case has been established for the harmfulness of pornography. In order to consider the ...

The Pornography Debate - 2,353 words
Suppose one accepts MacKinnon and Dworkin's suggested statutory definition of pornography. How does one who generally accepts MacKinnon and Dworkin's views on the pervasively harmful effect of pornography, and who accepts a need for legal redress of the harms perpetrated by pornography, deal with pornographic material? The ordinance proposed by MacKinnon and Dworkin would deal with such material by enacting legislation which gives people adversely affected by the works, which clearly fit their definition of pornography, a cause of action against the producers, vendors, exhibitors or distributors for "trafficking", or for an assault "directly caused by the specific work.
