Porn is not the Problem

Tuesday February 6, 2018
This morning, I saw an article titled 'Conservative MP says underage access to porn is a key factor in #MeToo cases'.  It seems that at a press conference about the documentary on Sheldon Kennedy's experience of abuse, Alberta MP Arnold Viersen said that he believes that access to online porn is a major cause of the problem of sexual abuse.  As I would have expected, this sparked a lively social media debate, getting people all riled up about porn and what should or should not be done about it.  This, I believe, is exactly what Viersen, and other people who raise this issue, want.
