BuzzFeed: “Porn Is Good For You.” What A Joke.

Two days ago, the popular internet/social media content site, BuzzFeed, posted a video titled “4 Good Reasons To Watch Porn.” (Watch above)

After watching it, we didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. The video is filled with numerous “facts” that claim to “prove” that pornography is good for the human mind, body, and spirit.

With an ending title saying, “So good luck with whatever else you do on the internet today,” BuzzFeed is all but encouraging you to go watch some porn and have a nice day.

But it gets even better. BuzzFeed did us all the common courtesy of not listing a single citation or source for the info they promoted.

Awesome.

All sarcasm aside, this video is not only the complete opposite of the truth, but the opposite of everything we do at Fight the New Drug.

Now, you know we’re usually pretty chill here at FTND. We know the truth about the harmful effects of pornography and our simple mission is to educate others and raise awareness on the facts in a cool way.

But when giant companies and organizations with a large reach start to push false information into the general public, that’s when we know we need to Fight the most.

You remember when we posted that blog article a while back, calling out PornHub for their ridiculous advertisements and then recreated them to show the world what the truth behind them was? That post was seen by over 1.2 million people and made a huge splash, showing that the information that big corporations are telling you about porn are only what benefits them, and are not the truth at all. 

So today, we’re taking a similar stand and calling out BuzzFeed for promoting lies on something as harmful as pornography.

Below you will find a punch for punch correction with the information from the video (legitimate citations provided for all to see at the end), giving the world what it really needs:

THE TRUTH.

BuzzFeed creates some of the most shared content on the internet. Most the time we enjoy it. Not this time. So if you aren’t cool with false information like this being spread, use this link to share THIS article and let the world know the truth about porn:

Below, you will find all the research we used in the article. Every fact we cited has legitimate, scientific backing.

Good luck getting BuzzFeed to do the same….

Often I have heard people say, “How good God is! We prayed that it would not rain for our church picnic, and look at the lovely weather!” Yes, God is good when He sends good weather. But God was also good when He allowed my sister, Betsie, to starve to death before my eyes in a German concentration camp. I remember one occasion when I was very discouraged there. Everything around us was dark, and there was darkness in my heart. I remember telling Betsie that I thought God had forgotten us. “No, Corrie,” said Betsie, “He has not forgotten us. Remember His Word: “For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His steadfast love toward those who fear Him.” … There is an ocean of God’s love available - there is plenty for everyone. May God grant you never to doubt that victorious love - whatever the circumstances.”

I took my little brother (who falls on the autism spectrum) to see Guardians of the Galaxy and after this scene he lit up like a Christmas tree and screamed “He’s like me! He can’t do metaphors!” And for the rest of the film my brother stared at Drax in a state of rapture. 

So for the last 6 days I have heard my brother repeatedly quote all of the Drax lines from the movie verbatim (one of his talents), begin studying vocabulary test words, and tell everyone he knows that people with autism can also be superheroes.

Now I am not saying that Drax the Destroyer is, or was ever, intended to be autistic. All I am saying is that it warmed my heart to see my brother have an opportunity to identify himself with a character known for his strength, badassness, and honor. And that is pretty damn awesome. 

So while I adored Guardians of the Galaxy as a great fun loving film with cool characters I can do nothing but thank Marvel Studios and Dave Bautista for finally bringing a superhero to the screen that my little brother can relate to.

In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
