O child of privilege and leisure, you really have not a blessed clue, have you?

The poor are the MOST affected by climate change. For example, they can't just turn on the A/C or hop in the SUV and drive up to the Poconos to cool off when it's too hot for comfort, like you can. And most likely do.

You conveniently glossed over the fact that the study was concerned with *violent* pornography and *depictions of rape*.

It was not about videos that simply show consenting adults naked and/or fucking. It was about videos that show (or re-enact) the commission of violent sex crimes.

Not the same thing at all. But, hey, thanks for playing.

Mr. Sexually Inadequate wonders why the women he encounters don't react like those he sees on porn sites panting and groaning in response to the guy's every demand and whim. He concludes, not entirely surprisingly, that women are untrustworthy, phoney bitch whores who deliberately tease guys like him then withhold what they've given to every other guy and so need to be taught a lesson.

Whereas the simple truth of the matter is that they're carrying on that like in the video because they're getting *paid* to do so.

So some business with the absolute bargain-basement IT staff, chock full of bargain-basement novices is going to decide if a compromised workstation the receiving department at another company is sufficient cause enough to shut that firm down? This would be like carpet-bombing an entire office building because a bank robber ducked into the building's lobby.

It's more like carpet-bombing a shoe store chosen more or less at random because you heard that, yesterday, a bank robber had run into one.

Even though, today, the same place he ran into yesterday might already be a café and not even be a shoe store any longer.
