This happened: Dr. Jude Roberts was talking at Newsnight, and after admitting to watch porn, the caption went from "Dr Jude Roberts" to "Jude Roberts - Porn user".

WTF? ARE YOU THE PHD NAZIS?

This image was lost some time after publication.




I was going to make a very eloquent comment here, but I can't even. I'll just repeat something I heard in a bar once:

"Don't trust a person that claims not to watch porn. Except maybe people with personal issues against sex. Porn is free, and it is out there. You literally have to spend energy NOT to see porn on the internet, by using NSFW triggers and all."

-Perfect Stranger


P.S.: This is the first, and hopefully last, time I refer to a person with a PhD as Dr. Something. I think that is douchebaggery, but here it was a matter of principle.

P.P.S: A prize to whoever gets the musical reference hidden in this post. ;)

ETA: SeaAnemone made a great point in the comments that deserves clarification. The quote I put was very out of context, but if I recall the person that said it meant as in "who has never watched porn" not as in "doesn't watch regularly". One is allowed to disagree with how porn is done, and/or just plain dislike it. Her point was that it is rare to see someone who hasn't had any contact with it, who hasn't watched at least once out of curiosity. Kinda in a "those who never made the same mistake throw the first stone".

I apologize for the rushy post, I was on a deadline.
