Feminism’s self-defeating about-face on porn

Jan 28, 2015 by

by Jonathon Van Maren, LifeSite: “Pornography is the theory,” renowned feminist Robin Morgan once wrote, “rape is the practice.” Indeed, feminists used to widely understand that pornography was, at its very best, dehumanizing and degrading, a product by men and for men that portrayed women only as objects of male desire.
