Note on label: "This is one of the clearest statements I've heard yet on pornography, its difference from eroticism, the reasons why most feminists have ignored the issue of pornography, how it's dangerous for women, why anti-pornography is not pro-censorship, and why women have been put off by the anti-porn movement in the past."
