Lost or trying to feign ignorance or be evasive?
I wasn't feigning anything, I didn't know what you were referring to.
Even sockmonkey, idiotic as she is, got the drift and you couldn't?
You're pretty rude to someone you've barely ever spoken to (me).
As for pornography being degrading, I think it depends on the type of pornography and the opinion of who's watching it. There's porn where everyone's of age, and they're having fun, all seeming to enjoy themselves, all seeming to take part of their own free will. Like "Girls Gone Wild", advertised on late night TV on certain channels. I don't see that as degrading. I wouldn't want my kid seeing it, and I wouldn't give them money for it, I don't necessarily like it personally, but I wouldn't call it degrading and tell others they shouldn't watch it. I've also seen some porn (photos I'm thinking of in particular) where the woman's eyes looked like she was on drugs and it made me wonder if she was even a willing participant. That disgusted me, imagining that maybe she wasn't even fully aware or able to decide clearly. In that case I'd think it was degrading.
As for men being degraded, I think it's equal for them. Just because they're the "active" one, doing the act TO the girl, doesn't mean he's not being degraded. If I saw him as a rude abusive man, taking advantage of girls in the scene, I'd think that's degrading and shows a bad image of men. But if he is acting in a loving way, and they are both enjoying themselves, then I don't think I'd see it as degrading to anyone.
I think that's what I think, though I'm no expert!
