Porn Screening Canceled At University Of Maryland

University of Maryland students won’t have the opportunity to see the new $10 million, woman-directed porn “Pirates II: Stagnetti’s Revenge” because the student union caved after being pressured from a local lawmaker who threatened to pull state funding from the school’s budget. So far, the flick, loosely based on “Pirates of the Caribbean,” has been screened at several other top schools, including UCLA, Northwestern, and Carnegie Mellon. Maryland state Sen. Andy Harris was thrilled when the University of Maryland opted not to show the film: “Students can’t light up a cigarette in the student union but can watch a hardcore XXX porn film. Occasional viewing of porn is more dangerous than occasionally lighting up a cigarette. If the movie is being shown for educational reasons, someone should be presenting the dangers too. Porn breaks up lives.” You know what else breaks up lives? Prudish views. [ABC News]
