Pornstar: “Games Harm Kids More Than Porn!”

super-mario-pornstar

Hirsute porn legend Ron Jeremy recently accused games of being more dangerous to children than pornography, speaking at the “Great Porn Debate”, an event held at the Consumer Electronics Show.

“Studies have found that violent video games are a much bigger negative influence on kids,” he said, comparing them to the very industry which made him famous, and apparently failing to cite which studies have found porn to have a negative influence on children.

Some of Jeremy’s most reactionary comments at the CES were from his denouncing of games as being an unfit method of child-rearing and calling upon the bevy of technology the porn industry employs to deter children from viewing the material:

“Because we make porn, we are the bad guys. We don’t want kids to watch porn but yes we recognise that it happens… Parents should watch what their kids are doing online and take some responsibility. Don’t blame us. We have disclaimers, age notifications and software blockers. We are doing our bit.”

Given the search trends of the younger generation, these efforts seem to have been futile.

Jeremy, a former teacher and veteran of over 2,000 adult movies, has also been vocal in criticising the Internet:

“I am a former school teacher, I have a masters degree and two BAs, and I think the Internet is making people stupid,” he said in an interview. “I just hate the Internet in general.”

Jeremy believes schoolchildren don’t have a desire for the old-fashioned ways of studying or research, when all that can be completed with a quick search online: “We could be giving rise to a generation of idiots.”

    Jeremy is full of shit, yes he deserves to have an opinion but guess what EVERYONE does! if do a and ask ‘what is harmful to kids video games or porn?’ he just defending his source of income by changing the topic and pushing the blame. the content we see in these so called ‘harmful games’ is no different is no different then what we see on the news, books, TV, movies and so forth.
    one day advance hi tech virtual gaming will become society’s prime source of entertainment and when it does he do everything in his power to make Virtual Porn then we’ll sick the critics on him

  • Anonymous says:

    That’s funny,aren’t these these the same studies
    that said that children in messed up families
    will find this(ex-mabe-cluding the porn)ok?

    P.S.There’s a reason why theres the rating +18 or above.

  • BloodThirstyNogitsune says:

    he’s only saying this to make porn look less, well offensive.
    It’s easy to perform studies and blame videogames for having a bad effect on children but how can one gather evidence against porn. Simple porn for minors is immoral you cant actually PROVE that it’s worse than videogames it’s just an obvious fact.
    Not to mention the fact that he is in a way making it sound as if porn is acceptable for minors

  • Some things I wanna bring up here. Be prepared, wall of words coming up.

    THIS.

    β€œI am a former school teacher, I have a masters degree and two BAs, and I think the Internet is making people stupid,” he said in an interview. β€œI just hate the Internet in general.”

    “and I think the Internet is making people stupid” <– THIS, in particular, that I have an issue with.

    The Internet is a tool for 'exchanging information in the modern era'. Do you become more stupid if you use a tool? The answer's 'no'.

    You can only make things happen when you use a tool. With a tool like a pen, for example, you can do good things (write a book that benefits others by education) or bad things (write a profane remark on the wall to insult someone). And that is factored by how well-educated you are, NOT how the tool 'makes' you smart or stupid.

    Mr. Jeremy, as a self-proclaimed expert in the field of education (or formerly was), failed to recognize the definition of a tool when he made that statement.

    And unless it somehow becomes 'self-aware' (*gasps* how ???) it is literally impossible for the Internet to have the will to 'make' someone stupid. It's the people who are abusing it to blame that they are spreading misinformation around the web to misguide people, and NOT the Internet.

    Well yeah, a lot has pointed out the hidden agenda of why Mr. Jeremy said something so ludricious as that. Loathing the Internet because he's losing money over his 'productions' getting distributed for free everywhere on the web.

    (And to be fair, the so-called 'violent video games' of his perspective are actually losing more money compared to porn because of Internet piracy, and we don't see the producers of such 'violent video games' coming out to any conventions or such to scream 'PORN DOES MORE HARM THAN VIOLENT VIDEO GAMES', do we? πŸ˜‰ )

    —–

    And after seeing quite a number of 'yeah agreed violence worse than sex' comments here, personally I'd disagree about that.

    [Disclaimer : I do not mean you guys are wrong about it, it's more like while you have your preference in believing so, I have my preference to believe otherwise. Partly that because we might come from different social backgrounds that made the difference in our perspectives, and partly that because we are both right about the facts we put up. So chill.]

    "Studies have found that violent video games are a much bigger negative influence on kids," Mr Jeremy said.

    Well, here's where I'd stamp '[CITATION NEEDED]'. The keyword here is 'bigger' where he mentioned, because that means he implements that violent video games's 'negative influence' is WORSE than 'something', in which I believe that he's referring that 'something' to be porn.

    In short, 'violence in video games is worse than the negative stuff in porn' is the message that I received from him.

    With the 'stating the obvious' part done, let's move on to the 'give it a thought' part.

    In violent video games, for example when you shoot someone, it will show that the person you shoot gets injured from the shot, and if fatal, dies.

    And in subtlety, it passes the hidden message of ‘yes, when you shoot someone, they die, and causing someone to die is a bad thing’. At least when we see kids playing that, we can tell them something like ‘See? That’s why you shouldn’t be violent, because killing is bad.’

    But in porn, when you have sex with someone (and most of the time in porn, they certainly don’t say anything about it being ‘protected sex’), does it show you what is the outcome of having sex?

    It certainly doesn’t speak anything of the outcome of ‘human reproduction’ (e.g the ‘hot legal teen’ who’s actually older than it was stated that she is, gives birth to a baby), nor the aftermath/impact on their lives on both protected/unprotected sex (this I leave for you people who had such experiences of getting laid to figure out). So, what are we going to tell the kids who were caught watching porn? The difficulty arises, mainly consisting of the emotional barrier of embarassment.

    So the comparing is done. Yes I will not deny that violence in video games has more or less a negative impact to kids, but I believe that it definitely cannot be much worse than how porn is faring in that field.

    In fact, both are destructive at their own levels in which they cannot be compared to with each other. Which means that we have to take two individual approaches (that could be similar, but differing in details) when we deal with the negative impacts on video game violence, and with the negative impacts on porn.

    Phew. All that essay work. Though like many of you, I believe the only thing correct Mr. Jeremy up there said was ‘Parents should watch what their kids are doing online and take some responsibility.’

    And I would add ‘And also implementing the appropriate form of education to them prior to letting them access to the Internet’. πŸ™‚

  • The federal government made a landmark study of the video game violence on kids back in 2004 (I think). Conclusion? Video games don’t make kids violent. Matter of fact, many studies show that the ability to act out fantasies via video games provides a therapy of sorts.

    In short, video games are good for you. Ron Jeremy is more full of shit than your local sewer.

  • what i love is that he is blaming I’m sure mature games, which kids aren’t supposed to have and comparing it with porn, which is also something kids aren’t supposed to have.

    He says porn has a warning and kids shouldn’t be watching it, but doesn’t mention that these games aren’t meant to be played either.

  • “The Internet is making people stupid.”

    No, the government is training children to not think critically, via the schools.

    It doesn’t matter whether you’re using the old-fashioned card catalog or a search engine to collect your research materials, you still have to evaluate the quality of the author and their material.

    If I were a teacher, I’d notify the class in advance that I’d grade down their research papers if they used Wikipedia as a reference, or used *only* Google to search for materials.

    There’s little effective difference between “www.BlackHelicoptersCauseCancer.com” and those little ads in the back of magazines selling copper bracelets as a rheumatism cure.

    Just because Google doesn’t find a web page doesn’t mean that page doesn’t exist. This is true of all search engines.

    Primary schools don’t require this basic rigor of thought and process. Critical thinking is not taught as a course there.

    The Internet doesn’t *make* people stupid, but it assists them in being so, if that’s how they are.

    “Google -> Wikipedia -> The Whole Truth” …. durrrr.

  • I think it’s important to note what age group that he’s talking about here.. is he talking about children 13 and under? 18 and under? 21 and under? I remember when I was 14 and I thought all this age rating crap was bullshit, teenagers and children basically don’t get any respect in general from a lot of adults and other teens as well when it comes to things that restrict them in terms of age of that nature.

    Basically when you’re not allowing someone to see a movie because they’re under the age of 18 you’re saying to them “you’re too stupid to understand this to distinguish it from reality.” Then people wonder why the generation is the way it is today, this over sheltering is what makes people turn into violent sex crazed nuts not the other way around.

    That doesn’t mean that showing 12 year old boys porn is a good idea, remember the other article about the one kid who tried to orgasm to get off and ended up getting necrosis? Clearly there needs to be more scientific and logical examination of this subject.

    Fuck “morals” or whatever it is whether it’s religious beliefs or whatnot. The more you pressure them to do one thing one way, the more they WILL go towards the other way and people should know this unless they forgot what it’s like growing up (and by judging the huge chunk of “society” my guess is they have).

  • Barbarian of Gor says:

    I love Ron Jeremy!

    Really, I do. Platonicly, of course. But if I violated God’s laws to commit the Sin of Sodom, it’d be with him;-) He’s both a “Super Man” and an “Every Man” at the same time, and also a loving “Parental” type of the 60s/70s. There really isn’t a tradition of respecting “Elders” anymore, and there’s a “Publik Corporate Groupthink Media” mess of a pretense of a culture, of which he’s an outsider oddball, but he does have a valid point…

    He doesn’t cry about Viag-a. One of the reasons he is a superman is he can get it up on command in a room full of people talking and laughing and to coke addict ice queens with tons of needle marks on their arms. Until recently, only a handful of men in the world could do it, and he was da top. Now, the ‘bodybuilder pretty boys’ can pop a few pills and get a boner for a while. But he doesn’t take it, relying on both his existing fame and his superman ability to keep pumpin da ladies!

    He’s got a valid point about Porn and the internet.

    I’m not knocking Piracy, it’d be “…Cast the first stone” on that issue.

    I LOVE internet pornography. It sure beats going to smelly theaters on the shit end of town, having religious shitheads photographing your license plate and trying to tail you to do things like walk into your workplace screaming… It beats having criminal gangs trying to rob your car, hoping you’ll be too preoccupied or embarrassed to call da fuzz, or that the Fuzz will have a “Moralist” that day who’ll lose your paperwork and not try to catch them… It beats a rather tame collection of soft shit that’s only slowly replenished because they have a limited budget for stock and the moralists try to get them raided with even the mildest S&M…

    Instead, for a nominal fee or free, I can get tons of porn of any taste. Luckily, I simply happen to like mostly guys and ladies and ladies and ladies and some light (no cutting! Barf!) S&M stuff along with Hentai. There’s no direct association in RL with me buying smut, no embarrassment, no pile of magazines, all on my “Porn o tron 3000” aka my computer and all it ‘cost’ was a few ‘subscriptions’ and an extra external HDD and a pile of CD Roms and DVD roms:-)

    But there should be a moral imperative to all of us to “Support what we like”. This is at the same time the worst and best time for the average joe wanting some entertainment. Right now, the cash flow is running low and the industry is desperate. Until they help fix things (the revolution shall be televised/on the net!) to ensure a population of sheep with more money than they deserve, we can make or break some players by how much we “Vote” for them with our dollars.

    My main theme is the “Music Industry” which needs the most overhaul. I’m for directly supporting artists, from new “Independent” acts you like to sending the entrenched “Old School” money directly (don’t admit DLing their muzik, just say “I like—“) because the way things are now if you toss $1 or $5 into the case of a guy playing a flute on a street corner, you pay him far more money than if he was a “Pro” and you bought his $20+ CD/DVD.

    Jeremy’s right about the net, too. I have to cut it off to get any computer work done, by unplugging/disabling it… I like it, but I have to watch myself or I’ll waste forever on it.

    Anyways, Jeremy’s hot. You can find tons of pics of him online. My fav is where he fucks Minka, a petite Oriental woman with really huge fake tits. And he’s F*cked them all, save Savannah, but her choice and her loss… IMO, if any male porn star deserves a donation, skip a Latte and send him $5, he deserves it! Or, buy/rent online some of his porn so to producers he’s still got da stuff!

    We should support the entertainment we do like. Simply put, the more we don’t support it, the more goes out of business leaving ONLY the corporate drek. Right now, “Stealing” can have an impact. At the same time “Directed Buying and donations and Fan Promotion” can help what you like not just survive but THRIVE.

  • i would have to point out that he also says that he doesnt want underaged kids watching porn….just like how kids under 18 shouldnt play violent games etc.

    sure violent games might have a worse influence (idc either way) but it’s not the games fault, people should parent better so his argument is completely invalid

  • Ron Jeremy has it all wrong. We’re not raising a generation of idiots, if anything, they’re smarter than ever before. What the internet/games might be actually doing is raising a generation of low-attention-span & lacking-all-self-discipline kids.

  • Heheheh because it was Ron that said it no one wants to listen. The fact he is a long way from ideal looking, people want to laugh. That he HAS been a teacher and he DOES have those degrees people can't handle it.

    Fact is, his looks and his past in porn don't make him wrong.

    That the internet is a great source of free porn most assuredly DOES impact the sale of porn videos. Hey they are not special there, it has impacted virtually everything that can be made digital. He's not being odd acknowledging that.

    I have had fun scoffing at wargamers thinking that because it is such a small niche hobby surely the fans would be noble enough to support the few struggling wargame software publishers. Nope, even as much of a struggle as it is to sell computer wargames, plenty will STILL download them all the same. No one is safe from people being cheap bastards.

    Violent video games DO have SOME impact. Fortunately it isn't as bad as it might be.
    But having lived since before them (video games) I can at least SEE the impact first hand. My life has been plenty of research, I haven't needed to go out and do artificial research. Much the same as Ron.

    But unfortunately for Ron, I am also aware of the effect unrestrained uncontrolled totally available porn has had on society. Because I was also around before all the digital porn was available as well. I CAN remember what it was like in the days before even video rental options were there.

    Think there has been no effect? Think again.

    Think the ability to pirate has had no downside negative effect? Think again.

    Think the net hasn't made people stupid? In some cases it most certainly has. Kids today can't generally think without the aid of Googling the answer. Ask a person to prove a point and they resort to copy pasting someone else's argument. They can't even perform their own arguments. They don't do much of their own thinking at all.

    And they sure have trouble writing anything out properly let alone actually reading something as small in duration as this post. This is a small bit of reading by the way. In high school this was how much the STUPID kids were expected to write at the drop of a hat. The smart kids would be expected to write for another 5000 words.

    • “Think the net hasn’t made people stupid? In some cases it most certainly has. Kids today can’t generally think without the aid of Googling the answer.”

      Translation: Kids who can find the answer through traditional media are smarter. Kids who find the answer faster/in a timely manner by employing widely available information technology tools and services are morons.

      “Ask a person to prove a point and they resort to copy pasting someone else’s argument. They can’t even perform their own arguments. They don’t do much of their own thinking at all.”

      Translation: People who can identify and evaluate a certain line of argumentation (or topic of discussion) and are able to find and/or remember a previous discussion pertaining to (or relevant to) said line of argumentation (or topic of discussion) and who hereby provides a reference to previous discussion because they have evaluated said previous discussion contains facts relevant to current discussion do no thinking at all.

      “And they sure have trouble writing anything out properly let alone actually reading something as small in duration as this post. This is a small bit of reading by the way. In high school this was how much the STUPID kids were expected to write at the drop of a hat. The smart kids would be expected to write for another 5000 words.”

      Translation: Longer is better. Innuendo unintended.

      I wish we had smilies. Particularly the eyeroll one.

  • hauntedskin says:

    The underlying message here is what societies find acceptable and NOT acceptable. Here in the USA we glorify violence and shun sex thanks to a bunch of religious zealot pilgrims who were deemed to radical in England landed here on “Plymouth Rock”. For example when Janet Jackson showed her flaccid boob to the world during the Superbowl, you would have thought there was another terrorist attack upon the US due to the reaction. But no one batted an eye when T2 or any other violent film probably got shown after the game…

  • DeathCrunch says:

    Since the only negative aspect of watching porn is more adventurous positions becoming more widespread and along with many many times greater sex, some ends in awkwardness due to pooper misuse.

  • β€œI am a former school teacher, I have a masters degree and two BAs, and I think the Internet is making people stupid,” he said in an interview. β€œI just hate the Internet in general.”

    I have a PhD and I think that you’re making me stupid.

    This kind of crap is just ridiculous.

    • "..and priests harm kids more than games, so it's better to abolish church before games before porn."
      I believe you should mean the Catholic Church Should be abolished. It is the most ass backwards form of Christianity next to the Mormons. Catholic Church is the biggest hotbed of molesters who do not face justice.

  • “Parents should watch what their kids are doing online and take some responsibility. Don’t blame us. We have disclaimers, age notifications and software blockers. We are doing our bit.””

    And the same can be said about games,idiots.

    Here’s what happen when you let a guys that gain his life with his dick use his brain…

  • i hate to say it but he’s semi right
    think about it you never hear of a kid going well i just did what i saw that guy do on porn.com
    but you here about kids saying that he tried to fly or he killed someone cause he thought they’d respawn

  • Kurodo Dhaos says:

    Meh, what an idiot…It isn’t the internet/videogames fault, it’s the parents fault!
    I’ve been playing videogames since I can remember(especially RPGs), and that has turned me into a very kind, smart and honest person.
    The internet has helped me out to find the things what I’m looking for and has made me more sociable.
    And too, porn has satiated my sexual curiosity/satisfaction.
    Any of those affected me in a bad way, all thanks to the good, no, GREAT teaching my parents gave me.

  • while his statements are completely flawed, there is a point to be made that parents regularly disregard videogame ratings and let their 10 year olds play games that are rated for adults. and then they get mad when there is a sex scene in grand theft auto despite the game saying it is not for kids.

    if you don’t let your children watch rated R movies, why are you letting them play mature rated games? and why are you getting mad at games rated mature for having mature content?

    I blame the parents.

    • Honestly, I don’t see a problem in kids playing M-rated games as long as their parents know they can handle it. Perfect example was brought up on Penn & Teller’s Bullshit episode about violence in video games. They featured a kid who was maybe 12-13, and he played CoD:MW online quite a bit. His mother let him do it. She supervised his play. She knew that he knew the difference between reality and fiction.

      So, Penn and Teller introduced him to a real US soldier who also played CoD:MW online quite a bit. The soldier offered to have the kid shoot his M4 on a target range. Initially, the kid was scared, and he didn’t want to do it. The soldier guy had to sort of press him a bit, and when the kid finally did it, he was so scared that he couldn’t handle it – he went and hugged his mother, crying into her dress and he wouldn’t let go for like 10 straight minutes at least.

      Season 7, episode 3, to be exact.

    • just goes to show how our generation will be a bit more keen than our parents were, concerning esrb ratings etc. We’ll know what to look for etc in games we purchase for the future young ones when they pester us to death about getting it, because hell – we shop in the same alley as well, no? at least… thats how it was for me growing up since my pops was an fps fan with doom etc during my teens XD

  • When it comes to porn, it’s the parents responsibility to monitor the kids. It’s the parents fault, not the porn industry.

    When it comes to video games, or the internet, then suddenly it isn’t the parents responsibility?

    Way to be a hypocrite, Ron Jeremy.

  • Comparing kids from my school years and kids from current school years, the kids now ARE smarter, by how much, I don’t know.

    If people have the will to learn then it doesn’t matter what generation they come from.

    Almost everything porn has today is thanks to the internet and the users, so STFU ron, get on your hands and knees and start kissing your fucking modem you asshole.

  • I agree with everything he’s saying. While video games don’t affect kids as much as people want to believe, they certainly do more than porn. Porn is only showing what they may be doing later in life, so why not get a head start? But hopefully, they won’t follow video games and shoot people when they’re older, as well. Like George Carlin said, “I’d rather have my son watch a film with two people making love than two people trying to kill one another.”

    And yeah the Internet makes people retarded.

    • Seriously? If you’re watching porn, it’s because you aren’t having sex (I’ve heard of people watching porn while having sex, but I don’t think any man can multitask like that). And if you’re playing video games, you aren’t out killing/raping/saving/feeding/making/clothing/eating/etc. people. What, you think people only play games involving killing people? Clearly you haven’t played Rapelay.

      Honestly, video games improve spatial reasoning and hand-eye coordination. Masturbating to porn makes you go blind, and you grow hair on your palms. There’s probably some other bad stuff, but either way, you get the picture. Video games make you a better person, while porn makes you disabled and ugly. Or at least, that’s what non-experts provide as anecdotal evidence, isn’t it?

  • Jeremy fails to realize that these days even (general) doctors don’t know all that much, they just know where to search for the information.

    At least here in Finland, studies show that modern day kids ain’t any dumber (actually a bit more intelligent) than previous generations.

    • He is either an idiot or making up that last part since in reality it is the reverse. The internet has actually made people smarter. The “old-fashioned” way of study and research gave you outdated information from few resources. Using the internet allows you to get up-to-date information from many resources. The reason why many reasources is better then having few resources is because you get more information and you can compare them to get around any bias.

      PS. Like other people are saying it is probably because of money that he is saying that.

  • Side note: Read about this on Kotaku a day or two ago….

    Main Topic: I kinda like what he has to say. On one hand, porn is regarded as this whole abysmal atrocity that deserves condemnation, while on the other hand it really is (regular sex, not over the top bondage etc etc, for argument’s sake) just watching something that everyone in their lifetime will do, if not only aspire to do.

    Games are, too, a form of entertainment, but as a whole not displaying a necessity of life. Entertainment is entertainment.

    Now, that said. I think it’s about right to here someone say something from the porn industry as it was probably just a matter of time blah blah blah. But in the end, regardless of who’s saying it, and regardless of the intentions of porn OR games, most people aren’t smart, adept, intelligent, or mature enough to understand things without it negatively influencing their lives in someway.

    So. Do I think games are negative regardless of intention, yes. Do I think porn is negative, yes. The only difference I have in stating this is A: I don’t let this negatively affect my life, quite the opposite. And B: I’m not looking down on one of these media forms to downplay my own role or to foul mouth the other. But most importantly C: I believe that the majority of people look down on these things, to avoid temptations and urges that result from interaction due to lack of attributes mentioned above. As a result of said lack of mental maturity, things that shouldn’t influence everyday life instead HINDERS that which should be overcome, furthering the damnation of our otherwise fully capable society.

  • Blame pushing FTW!

    Also, health benefits of masturbation using porn must be quoted to further drive in the attack!

    β€œI am a former school teacher, I have a masters degree and two BAs, and I think the Internet is making people stupid,” he said in an interview. β€œI just hate the Internet in general.”
    The internet is a showcase of stupid people silly. Back in the good old days when some basic sense and technical knowledge is required to get on the tubes, nobody said that the internet is stupid or making people stupid.

    He should mention how the internet leads to piracy which cuts into his own profits from the adult movies he made.

    Also, from context, doesn’t it make Eroge the greatest evil?

    • Actually, he did mention the Internet as a reason for lost profits in pornography, save for sex-toy sales.

      Though I don’t think Jeremy himself has sold any video of worth as of recent via the Internet or otherwise.

    • Jeremy believes schoolchildren don’t have a desire for the old-fashioned ways of studying or research, when all that can be completed with a quick search online: β€œWe could be giving rise to a generation of idiots.”

      old-fashioned ways of research is outdated ways of research which will ultimately lead to outdated research, therefore BAD

      simple convenience of the internet quick search does not automatically make one an idiot, Jeremy is jumping to conclusions

    • All in all, listen to the man. He knows his bit, and I have to say I agree. I think it’s all about the silly assumption (eg. in the US mass media) that mild violence is more tolerable than sexual content. I dunno where it comes from, maybe from the fact that while “missbehaviour” in both areas can happen, the violent things (eg. beating someone) cause serious legal punishments on the kid itself, while (non violent) sexual ones (eg. early sexual relationships) on most occasions end up in fines paid by the parents, and as such are more likely to occur. But he thing is that mass media builds up an image that children should be better shielded from the fully natural sexual activity, than from the violence. Look at any of the US TV action series – 5 bad guys die, but there ain’t no sex scene…

      • Shit you’re right look at the SAW movies those things are basically legal snuff films but it’s alright nobody says a thing. Yet if anything shows the slightest bit of sex even if its the showing on female underwear people flip the fuck out if they’re child sees it. Parents or Older adults seem to have an extreme double standard when it comes to violence and sex. Overall they can fuck whoever they want and beat the living the shit out of you. Yet for the young you have to wait for marriage and not lay a hand on anybody.

        I noticed this cause look at all the ads that are sexually based they always have middle aged adults acting like horny teenagers. Yet don’t the kids / teens learn about sex properly until something goes wrong. Cause teaching kids how to protect themselves sexually is somehow worse then lying about it and or not telling them anything at all. It’s the same way with violence we can’t fight each other shit even spitting / yelling at each other can get you thrown in jail, but there’s ads on all the time wanting you to become a soldier and learn kill other people because its a “higher cause then oneself”

        And yes I have to agree the Internet does make quite a few people stupid, but listing them here would take hours.

        • I think that the wrong information someone can get from the internet can make a person stupid. However, the internet itself is an awesome tool for communication AND information gathering, not to mention acquisition of software/media. I learned 80% of what I know about photoshop, illustrator, and Corel painter from the internet. Hell, I didn’t even know some of those programs existed before I got online.

          People blaming the internet for making people stupid, is, in itself stupid. It’s just a tool. Might as well blame a kitchen knife when someone does something stupid and causes an injury.

  • Fap = Blindness.
    Bestiality = Nightmares
    Jeremy = Disgusting fat greasy hairy Italian dude.
    School teacher = I wouldn’t let my kids anywhere near that disgusting fat greasy bastard.

    Video games = Teach you how to drive and assemble guns.

    Did Ron Jeremy teach anyone how to enter a hostile building without getting their head blown off? Didn’t think so. Games CAN teach things, porn can’t (Oh sorry, except that women are nothing but objects [at least games can have female protagonists giving you a glimpse of humanity]) You failed Ron Jeremy. “My being in the industry has nothing to do with the fact that I’m supporting it, I’m completely un-biased”. Good job, at one point I at least thought you were cool, now your just a sellout greasy fat douchebag oozing one-sided arguments. The internet enables you to cash your dirty money checks you moron. What school did you attend that gave you the go-ahead to be around children anyway? What manner of after school detention did you run? Did you just….stick your dick into random shit and people until they never misbehaved….or walked…again? How old were these children? For Shame Ron Jeremy!
