Don’t mar­ket it

Central Leader - - Letters -

I dis­ap­prove of the Boobs on Bikes pa­rade. I main­tain that pornog­ra­phy is like a drug, ex­cept it has no ben­e­fi­cial hu­man use. It dis­as­so­ci­ates sex from in­ti­macy and is the lead­ing con­trib­u­tor to the ob­jec­ti­fi­ca­tion of women in West­ern so­ci­ety.

Pornog­ra­phy should never be en­cour­aged, let alone mar­keted in our so­ci­ety. Our coun­try des­per­ately needs to pro­mote the aware­ness of pornog­ra­phy and its dev­as­tat­ing so­cial ef­fects, rather than pro­mot­ing pornog­ra­phy it­self. ANDREW STITT
