Tennessee House Votes to Call Porn a ‘Public Health Crisis’

This post is also available in: Français

Yesterday, the Tennessee senate passed a non-binding resolution condemning porn as a “public health crisis” that makes men less interested in marriage. Damn right it does. Have you seen some of those videos? Hot. Who wants a spouse when you can have digitally streaming DP anytime you want? For reals.

What does the anti-porn resolution do exactly?

According to The Tennesseean, the resolution says that porn causes eating disorders and provides sexual education to children. Naturally, Tennessee hates providing any sex ed to its children. It makes sense; they just want to protect their national lead in chlamydia infection rates.

The resolution also “calls for education, policy change, prevention and research on the negative effects of pornography.” Now it heads to the Tennessee House for a vote before possibly going to the senator’s desk for signing.

Does Tennessee really have nothing better to do?

Tennessee has some of the highest marriage rates in the country, so the resolution seems like little more than red meat for the state’s conservative voters.

Tennessee’s other recent legislative priorities include a bill punishing student protestors who shut down any campus visitors who promote hate speech. Another bill would exclude same-sex couples from being listed on artificial insemination birth certificates.

Meanwhile, Tennessee’s unemployment rate stands a 6% — 0.4% higher than the national average. But by all means, tackle that porn problem first. That should be a hit with male voters.
