Porn Is Adultery

Sigh. Moreover, a cigarette is suicide, the minimum wage is chattel slavery, and novels are full of lies, lies, lies!  Kerry points out the insulting, should-be-obvious implication of the Douthatian position:

It would follow that almost all of us have experienced monogamy as a series of small treacheries and degradations of which we are barely aware. We lack the cognizance to understand that porn constitutes a breach of trust; we don’t understand the agreements we’ve entered into, their terms having been set without our knowledge. Our relationships are constantly under attack, our closest bonds assailed, and we carry on in a cloud of misbegotten contentment.

This is silly.

Indeed. Ross’s position still completely mystifies me in terms of psychology, morality, logic, and if there is something else in play, it mystifies me in those terms, too.
