Now, I am experiencing a strong sense of déja vu. The new incarnation of the Digital Economy Bill starts with a real concern, that children can access pornography online, and puts forward a 'modest proposal". This is a deserving group whose interests are indisputably important.

Blaming porn for children being sexually active and anxious about sex, is a single minded and uneducated view. Snapchat, Tinder, Facebook and even Whatsapp, all give young people an endless platform for swapping messages and photos without their parents knowing.

We are equal to men in this industry, and if that isn't what feminism is supposed to be about then I give up. It's sad that a movement that is supposed to embrace women and strive for equality has turned into women slut-shaming and abusing other women for not fitting their very precise mould.
