Porn, freedom and safety.

Pornography, Rape and Sex Crimes in Japan [Web version], Milton Diamond and Ayako Uchiyama:

In sum, the concern that countries allowing pornography would show increased sex crime rates due to modeling or that adolescents in particular would be negatively vulnerable to and receptive to such models or the society would be otherwise adversely effected has not been vindicated. It is certainly clear from our data and analysis that a massive increase in available pornography in Japan has been correlated with a dramatic decrease in sexual crimes and most so among youngsters as perpetrators or victims. We have mentioned some possible influential factors.

Via SE. Note that there are some questions about basing their data off of reported rapes.

Meanwhile, Amplify looks at the uproar over the Ohio "Abstinence 'Til Marriage" program website, specifically "it's only a rape if you think she's not a slut" agenda. I meant to link to this a few days ago, but when I went to the source web site I couldn't find the content in question. Looks like Feministe has some stuff mirrored. Also via "tamp" over at SE, be warned that said user is known for... uh... barely coherent ranting.

The problem with agendas, especially funded ones, is they will make up crapola to maintain or increase their funding. More bad religious agenda crapola... Sigh.
