    It can’t *JUST* be that, of course.

    We also need rock and roll. My suggestion was for Dee Snider to re-unite Twisted Sister and remake “I Wanna Rock” shot for shot with Neidermayer as an Imam. “A TWISTED SISTER PIN??? ON YOUR IHRAM??? WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO WITH YOUR LIFE???”

    I WANNA ROCK!

    And basically have Dee and the boys beat the crap out of Neidermayer with rock and roll for the song. (Have him crabwalking in fear backwards down a hallway as the guitarist does the meedly meedly meedly part of the guitar solo.)

  2. I’m definitely a skeptic about porn being able to change the Muslim world, especially overnight. The one thing I think would possibly do the most to change the Muslim world would be a great deal of translation of (non-pornographic) literature between the Muslim world and the non-. And even that would take a generation, I’d say, to really pay off. Ultimately though I don’t think there’s a silver bullet here.

    I have to wonder, though: for every couple whose marriage was torn apart by porn, how many marriages quietly consume porn together, with no guilt or shame, and with much pleasure along the way? We would be a lot less likely to hear about these couples, but they are certainly out there.

    We also never hear about the men whose especially strong sexual desires are to some degree slaked by porn, and thus don’t go on to mistreat women. All we hear about are the men who DO mistreat women, and who blame it on porn as an excuse after the fact.Report
