For discussion of writers who hold such a view, see Berger, "Pornography, Sex and Censorship." An easily accessible example of one version of such an argument is to be found in Irving Kristol "Pornography, Obscenity and the Case for Censorship," The New York Times Magazine, March 28, 1971.
42
Berger, "Pornography, Sex and Censorship," p. 89ff.
43
The case that pornography unjustly victimizes women is argued by a number of writers. Ann Garry "Pornography and Respect for Women" in Copp and Wendell, op. cit., pp. 61-82, is a particularly useful presentation of such a view.
44
Garry discusses the possibility of "non-sexist" pornography in Pornography and Respect for Women.
45
Of course, the "clear and present danger" doctrine can be misused to suppress dissent through too broad an interpretation of what is a clear and present danger.
