Porn Generation, pt. 1

News & Politics

"I went to my local Barnes & Noble this weekend and read the first two chapters of Porn Generation, Ben Shapiro's inadvertently hilarious new book about how kids today are all licentious, degenerate reprobates who smoke LSD while having sex with potted plants (but not Ben, of course- he's courageously locked his genitals in an alarm-protected titanium-clad chastity belt that can only be opened by the tender touch of Ann Coulter)," writes Brad R.

"Speaking of Ann, she has a blurb on the cover that praises Ben as 'wise beyond his years.' I think 'old beyond his years' would be more accurate, since most of the time he sounds like a cantankerous, doddering bitty who hasn't been right in the head since NBC cancelled Columbo. For someone who claims to be a 'peer' of the porn generation, Ben has very little ability to connect or empathize with people his own age.

"Take a look at this exchange in Chapter 2, where Ben interviews 'Katie,' a fellow student at Harvard:

Katie isn't a virgin, and she isn't ashamed of it.

"But she should be, right Ben? She should cry herself to sleep on her big, slutty pillow, shouldn't she?"

And there's more, much more. Not especially work safe...but it's just text... (Sadly, No!)
