Skeptical of Pfc's Comment

In response to changing standards which may ban magazines such as Playboy and Penthouse for pornographic material on military bases, it's reported that one Private First Class made the following statement as an argument against the proposed change:

"We all read 'em,...'There are times we just read 'em for the technological parts like the new gadgets that come out. They have good stories sometimes too.'"

Do you think additional magazines with technology and gadgets would satisfy him?

It's no different than when men suggest they go to Hooters because they have good wings.

Note the statement by U.S. Rep. Paul Broun, R-Ga (which I assume probably comes from the Department of Defense's study committee's findings):

"Allowing the sale of pornography on military bases has harmed military men and women by: escalating the number of violent, sexual crimes; feeding a base addiction; eroding the family as the primary building block of society; and denigrating the moral standing of our troops both here and abroad,"
