I'm having a hard time finding anything to disagree with in that post. It seems quite reasonable. Perhaps I'm missing your point?

Great article. Porn is paralyzing Christian men in every church.

You missed the memo, again! Because chastity is difficult and requires self-denial, we're supposed to ridicule anyone who suggests that we even attempt it.

To which the typical response will be "of course it's easy for women to refrain from masturbation, they don't care about sex in the first place."

"Rather than satisfying the man's sexual passion, it only serves to further ignite it."

I can agree with this. But eliminating this sort of thing must be done voluntarily, and not by government coersion. Your statement about libertarians is, in my opinion, rather foolish. It is like calling all people in favor of liberalizing drug laws 'pot heads', so those in favor of keeping porn legal must be 'porn freaks' or whathaveyou.

Most libertarians agree with social conservatives on the 'evil' nature of drugs and porn, however, they argue that increases in freedom will naturally yield to the slow dissolution of these vices, while goverment coersion will yield the opposite effect.

People must choose not to partake in these things, they cannot and should not be forced.

I have no personal experience with being a woman.

But, to the extent that I know some things about them, that response would not appear to ... mmm ... comport well with reality ... shall we say ... [ahem]

All I know is that things got a lot better for me after I got a wife!

Nah! You're just running up against my customary Friday afternoon 45-second attention span. ;-)
