Governor Chris Christie , Porn , and Bans on Same Sex Sexual Orientation and Behavior Therapy.

There is no doubt much to discuss and indeed endless controversies to be had on the new New Jersey law that prevents licensed counselors from trying to change a minor's sexual orientation.

Denny Burk  has a quick take on this at Governor Chris Christie’s broadside against religious liberty

Let me talk about one issue that is lurking in the background and for many reason people are uncomfortable talking about. That is porn.

When I was a kid getting a porn magazine was at times harder than getting a beer in some places. When you did acquire one the " hardcore " of then was nothing like the hardcore of today.

The internet of course changed all that and there is no real practical way to keep massive amounts of the most hardcore porn away from minors.

I bring that up because there are indications that excessive porn use at an early age can possibly effect the hard  wiring of the brain itself. Further in porn addiction groups among grown men problems of some level of  same sex attraction for many where many had none before their porn addiction is common.

I am not saying porn is turning people " gay " in big numbers However there there is a vast amount of sexual activity between " gay " and straight. Notice the  Washington Post article thsy Denny cites fails to be mention the " B " word that is bisexual.

So we are in a strange situation. The First Amendment gives wide protection to porn . Porn  that perhaps can warp a person's sexual attractions when one becomes addicted. However the First Amendment protection and rights of people in counseling have now been limited to perhaps combat this.

My opinion of Sexual Orientation: Who cares what people like as long as they don't interfer with what I like. Pretty simple way to live my life without messing with someone else's.
