porn is also a health-crisis. If you agree, vote Republican.

I'm shocked that 14-17 year olds who view porn on the computer might also text sex messages.

It is a safe bet that if we were to dig up the research behind that scientifically illiterate politiciams use in support of this, actually does not in any way establish a causal link.

A construcivist outlook is central to politics, and in general shared by many people. Without it you can’t sell simple solutions to complex problems to the worried masses.

It should be noted that this illustrious wellspring of knowledge cited porn addiction. I could understand where an actual medical addiction (to anything, really) could cause issues like brain shrinkage. But how many people are actually addicted to porn?

Also, for certain definitions of brain, extended exposure to porn and certain types of stimulation will indeed create shrinkage in the (lower) brain.

”extended exposure to porn and certain types of stimulation will indeed create shrinkage in the (lower) brain.”

Specifically the use of causal language, ”will create”. The only study I have seen on this with porn is a cross sectional study. Not that I have a thing for epidemiological studies on porn
(I swear!), it would be interesting to read :-)

Uh.

You didn't pick up on the masturbation joke? After an extended period of time, you finish and it shrinks back down.

They will think of something.

It wouldn't be necessary since everyone would be living within the only remaining crisis. Full steam ahead! The shrinkage of brain power is being compressed.

I insisted you were being serious even after thinking: ”certain definitions of brain” what the hell does that mean? I’m tired, it’s been a long day...

I'd say ROFL @ Hood & Nim, but I'm too preoccupied with the fact that my brain just now shrunk again.

Aw. Do you need a pair of tweezers and a lump of sugar to coax it back out?

"a lump of sugar"

Is this some weird fetish I've never heard of?

I'm glad I wasn't the only one confused by this. Norwegians are weird, man.
