I try to see the silver lining in clouds, the bright side to every dark piece of news. One of the incidental benefits of the NSA revelations that it had plans to use the online viewing of adult online content as a means of discrediting people is that as more and more people are revealed as watching such content, it will reduce the stigma it once had.
After all, it was not that long ago that being gay in the US was seen as such a bad thing that it required it being kept secret. Those who were gay became vulnerable to blackmail and as a result they were even seen as security risks. As it has become apparent that many more people are gay than originally thought, and that they were just ordinary people we encounter in our workplaces and families, that stigma has disappeared except in the minds of the religious bigots.
As we know, the viewing of explicit sexual activity online is widespread but still carries a stigma. Few people will admit to watching it and as such it is hard to get a feel for how prevalent it is. It is safe to say that it is likely to be much more than what any survey will find. But as more and more people are involuntarily exposed as viewers by outfits like the NSA, it will result in it becoming mainstreamed and no longer have the power to discredit it once had.
Cartoonist Ted Rall seems to be thinking along the same lines as me, and is suggesting that we all watch porn a lot so that no one can be blackmailed by the NSA or anyone else.
It should not be hard to get mass support for this particular call to action. Maybe someone will proclaim a National Pornography Day (or Month) like May being declared as National Masturbation Month.
