01) Porn viewers more likely to see women as equals than non-viewers

Thanks to Pete!

“People who watch pornography hold views of women as more equal to men than people who do not watch pornography, and are no less likely to describe themselves as feminists, according the results of a study published in the Journal of Sex Research.

A study led by Taylor Kohut, of Western University, addressed this controversy using data from more than 28,000 people who participated in the General Social Survey, an annual study of attitudes in the US population, between 1975 and 2011…

…In total, 23% of Americans told researchers that they had viewed pornography in the last year. Both male and female pornography viewers had better attitudes towards women working outside the home, and were more supportive of abortion rights, in comparison with those who had not watched pornography.

While debate about the relative merits of pornography use will undoubtedly continue, these findings will give some support to those who argue that at least some of the dangers attributed to it have been exaggerated.”

One has to wonder about consumers of other types of pornography, and what such a study might find out about them…perhaps, what exaggerations might exist pertaining to them.
