Why Is It OK To Show Women Being Tortured On Screen, But Not Doing THIS?

Apparently the Motion Picture Association of America thinks women should be ashamed to be seen enjoying sex, but the rest of us should have no qualms about enjoying a movie where women are beaten, tortured, and assaulted. That's a pretty backwards idea, if you ask me (and Ryan Gosling, who was not too happy with the MPAA's decision to slap an NC-17 label on his film "Blue Valentine").

As face masks have become mandatory in many places to limit the spread of coronavirus, it's also become an increasingly politicized thing. As we know, anything that involves political polarization also involves vast amounts of misinformation and disinformation. Whose idea was the internet again?

No one I know loves wearing a mask. We all wish we didn't have to. But there are an awful lot of people saying they can't wear one, or they refuse to wear one because they've been led to believe that masks are somehow more dangerous than not wearing one. I've seen and read "information" on everything from masks depriving people of oxygen to masks causing CO2 build up to masks creating fungus problems.
