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….

❝ Now there is a final reason I think that Jesus says, “Love your enemies.” It is this: that love has within it a redemptive power. And there is a power there that eventually transforms individuals. Just keep being friendly to that person. Just keep loving them, and they can’t stand it too long. Oh, they react in many ways in the beginning. They react with guilt feelings, and sometimes they’ll hate you a little more at that transition period, but just keep loving them. And by the power of your love they will break down under the load. That’s love, you see. It is redemptive, and this is why Jesus says love. There’s something about love that builds up and is creative. There is something about hate that tears down and is destructive. So love your enemies. ❞
Martin Luther King Jr., A Knock at Midnight: Inspiration from the Great Sermons of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. (via hislivingpoetry)

Captain Johnson Breaks Promise, Uses Tear Gas And Military Vehicles Against Ferguson Protesters

August 17th, 2014

Captain Johnson broke a direct promise he made on Saturday when officers and SWAT under his control broke up the night’s demonstration using military-like vehicles and tear gas while enforcing a midnight curfew.

Johnson insisted at a press conference earlier in the day that those methods would not be used.

We won’t enforce it with trucks, we won’t enforce it with tear gas. We’ll communicate. We’ll talk about, you know what, it’s time to go home,” Johnson told a boisterous crowd.

But shortly after midnight, when the curfew went into effect, riot police equipped with rifles, shields and five armored vehicles, shot tear gas and smoke grenades to disperse defying protesters chanting “No Justice, No Curfew”.

It was initially unclear whether tear gas or smoke was volleyed. Police spokesmen on the ground told reporters there that the anti-riot agent they were using was merely smoke.

But several reporters tweeted pictures of the canisters they picked off the ground which showed that riot CS smoke was being used.
