Pornography- symptomatic of a sick mind

05 December 2011, 12:43

While many see pornography as a sign of profound moral decay, others believe pornography is not detrimental and is edifying to a certain extent and some even call it entertainment.

People of all faiths abhor pornography and regard it as unlawful. Moreover, it is shameless, degrading, morally wrong and symptomatic of a sick mind. Pornography should be banned as a risk to women because it dehumanises women into becoming sexual objects. Women in pornographic pictures or films are required to perform in demeaning ways, leading individuals into believing that this is the way that women like to be treated. 

Numerous well researched scientific and religious documents are available concluding that all forms and levels of pornography has the potential for causing harm to women, children and the family unit.

Pornography or sexually explicit material- the alternative term, distorts the reality; it has an attribute of dominance and is factually linked in many ways to an entire range of physical human injury and harm. It leads people into a world of fantasy and desire that isolates them from realism, morals, loyalty, responsibility and respect which should manage our lives and interactions. Above all it reduces women as objects with which to live fantasies and as a result diminishes women as to their human dignity and right to bodily integrity.  Research has shown that men who see women depicted as sex objects are more likely to treat them so and tend to become more abusive towards women, less responsive to pain and suffering of rape victims, and more willing to accept various myths about sex and related issues.

Moreover, Pornography is frequently implicated in such shocking sex crimes against the human race that it is impossible to quote them all in this correspondence.

Let us be clear and unambiguous that pornography is harmful, and that the harm is serious enough to call it a crime against humanity. Women are the heart beats of every household and undermine that blessed beat, the entire structure of family life crumbles.

Pornography should not be transmitted or broadcasted into millions of homes. It is not about rights or censorship. It is about respecting and protecting the rights of all of us to live in a safe, decent and moral society.

The sex industry seeks to ignite desires by making people feel that lingerie, adult toys, porn and other products are needed for a fulfilling sex life when in fact all that is needed is a healthy lifestyle, love, attraction and marriage to a faithful and loving partner.

ABDULLAH.
