The Battle of Blue Balls
Two wars may not be enough for the soldiers over in the Middle East—they may soon be battling over their rights to porn! GA House Rep Paul Broun, a former Marine, introduced the “Military Honor and Decency Act,” which would prohibit the sale of sexually explicit material on military bases. The porn-hater claims the material is hazardous to a soldier’s morality.
“Allowing the sale of pornography on military bases has harmed military men and women by: escalating the number of violent, sexual crimes; feeding a base addiction; eroding the family as the primary building block of society; and denigrating the moral standing of our troops both here and abroad. Our troops should not see their honor sullied so that the moguls behind magazines like Playboy and Penthouse can profit. The ‘Military Honor and Decency Act’ will right a bureaucratic—and moral―wrong.”
Army and Air Force Exchange service public relations manager Judd Anstey said AAFES sold $231,000 worth of Penthouse, Playboy and Playgirl (!) magazines in Europe last year, stripes.com reported.
“Sales of these three titles account for 2.7 percent of total European magazine sales ($8.5 million) at AAFES facilities,” he said.
The Department of Defense already banned “sexually-explicit” material on bases in 1997, but the Pentagon doesn’t necessarily deem the same material as explicit. With this act, more material would be banned.
Rep. Broun will now try to write a bill preventing the use of guns because they, too, may be morally and physically damaging.
