Let’s play with stereotypes for a moment:
- Men are traditionally perceived to want sex, and Women (in some relationships) to retain power by denying access to it
- So Women press to have household porn blocked
- Men (inarticulate, without explaining why) get shirty and frustrated
Result: increase in domestic violence and a modest uptick in prostitution. Perhaps a few rapes.
Thank you, Mothers Union, for improving society.
Oh, and the “enabling government censorship” thing? There’s that, too. Nice one, Reg.
If this sounds crazy – back in the 1970s/1980s there was a stink at collieries (and similar factories) in Britain, when the cash-filled wage packet (ie: an envelope) was ditched in favour of cheques and/or direct payments into banks; this meant the working men couldn’t steam open the envelope and remove some cash before handing it over to their wives.
