When Correctly Viewed, Everything Is Lewd

Tom Lehrer, in his classic song “Smut,” opens with an explanation as to his pet cause — pornography.

I do have a cause though. It is obscenity. I’m for it. Unfortunately the civil liberties types who are fighting this issue have to fight it owing to the nature of the laws as a matter of freedom of speech and stifling of free expression and so on but we know what’s really involved: dirty books are fun. That’s all there is to it. But you can’t get up in a court and say that I suppose. It’s simply a matter of freedom of pleasure, a right which is not guaranteed by the Constitution unfortunately.

That’s always rung true to me. I find very little objectionable, as long as it is restricted to consenting adults. (This is not to say there isn’t a LOT out there I find distasteful or down right repugnant, but I won’t object to others enjoying it.)

But every now and then I find something that I simply cannot turn a blind eye to. Something to disgusting, so appalling, so virulently objectifying of human beings, that I have to raise my voice in protest.

And this is one of them.

This needs to be stopped, and stopped NOW.
