Coburn, have you no decency sir?

Seriously, that "all pornography is homosexual pornography" statement is so wrong on so many levels as to be barely worth mention were it not for the contingent of dead-enders who seem likely to believe such statements (and who ironically probably consume more pornographic materials than any other demographic). There are forms of pornography that I think are harmful, but those are usually those that feature the violent and degrading treatment of victims - which has been linked causally to increases in aggressive behavior in lab experimentation, and which can be linked with a higher incidence of sexual assaults perpetrated by males against females in survey and interview studies (admittedly it's been a few years, but it would be useful to look up the research of Neil Malamuth for a more thorough discussion of the available data).
