Yes, police threats are up there with John violence.
Fucking prostituted women does not = "sex", nor is sex a human need, insofar as you're not owed it nor will you die from not having sex, whereas you will by not eating. Not that fucking prostituted women = sex. You can just jerk off, if you think it's a "human need".

Chris Hedges did not invent feminist ideas. We oppose prostitution and porn because of its documented violence against women, and I read all about that before Chris Hedges spoke to prostituted women, survivors of porn etc. (but you should listen to the women he speaks to too). Also, he's not a fundamentalist Christian, he's barely a Christian (even though he studied that world).
If you believe those of us who oppose violence against women are prudes, that's your problem, and something I always find amusing by the pro-prostitution brigade, as if we equate buying women to that wonderfully fun (and mutual) thing that most people understand sex to be.
