Let’s Ban Porn
The synopsis is exactly what the title sayss, and he wants feminists to join forces with cultural conservatives on this issue.
Trump’s grotesqueries have stirred up a feminist reaction that’s more moralistic and less gamely sex-positive than the Clinton-justifying variety, and there’s no necessary reason why its moralistic gaze can’t extend to our porn addiction. And indeed, I think the part of the #MeToo movement that’s interested in discussing sexual unhappiness and not just sexual harassment clearly wants to talk about pornography, even if it doesn’t quite realize that yet.
Douthat himself has more of the social conservative motives than the feminist ones, but he sees a chance here to make an ally of convenience on this issue.
