Letter to the editor,

A couple of the ladies on The View felt it was okay for a schoolteacher to pick up some extra cash by selling pornography performed by her and her husband. School teachers don’t make enough money.

Problem is that pornography is often demeaning to women and destructive of family formation and marital stability in men.

Also, if this woman got a big bump in her teacher salary, I bet she would keep on doing porn anyway because it is such a fabulous moneymaker. Americans today have an insatiable desire to build larger and larger mansions for themselves, while neglecting other important priorities. It’s that “golden calf” syndrome that has been around for a while.

One of the ladies suggested that a woman must have the right to control her own body. That gets votes in elections but doesn’t always play so well in legislatures and courts. Think about the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade and unwilling men who are conscripted into mandatory war-time service to sacrifice their bodies on foreign soil like during the Vietnam War.

Finally, when you take away society’s reasonable control over individual freedom, you take away democracy. Pornography is a very efficient vehicle for promoting anarchic behavior like adultery, casual divorce, youthful misbehavior, and communication of sexually transmitted diseases. We sacrifice the future of our loved ones on the altar of our own momentary pleasure.

Bright women should know better.
