This was one response to the NYT Cohen op-ed I posted earlier above, that I thought was interesting, and something that for whatever reason, I never thought of with college aged men.

“I would venture to guess that more men have warped and distorted viwes of healthy sexuality today than did 100 years ago. When 90+% of college men have been exposed to significant quantity of hard-core porn, their concept of women as partners for healthy sexuality is warped, and women become objects. Until society and parents realize the damage we are doing to boys and men with porn – this problem won’t go away. That does NOT, in any way, absolve these men of responsibility for their crimes . . .But also adress the damage of porn and what we have done with the complete and total objectification of women in our society – even BY women.”
