re: Adult talk.
@unfa Fight The New Drug is a religious organization that is heavily biased against porn, and it’s “studies” are unscientific and unsupported by the larger scientific community.
“The group denies a formal affiliation with the Mormon church, though as journalist Samantha Allen notes, its founders are all Mormon, and its facts rely on claims from Mormon author Donald Hilton’s He Restoreth My Soul: Understanding and Breaking the Chemical and Spiritual Chains of Pornography through the Atonement of Jesus Christ.”
“While drug abuse is perennially among the leading drivers of morbidity and mortality, the American Academy of Psychiatry has repeatedly deemed evidence insufficient that sex and porn addiction be recognized as mental disorders.”
“…when Danish criminologist Berl Kutchinsky charted sexual aggression in the two decades after Denmark and Sweden legalized pornography, the crimes did not increase in step with pornography distribution, but actually declined. This suggested to him that pornography was an outlet for sexual expression less than a driver of problematic real-world behavior.”
There is also this article from certified sex therapists: https://archive.sltrib.com/article.php?id=4409139&itype=CMSID
“The largest published neuroscience study of this topic to date, as well as a series of published behavioral studies, shows that those who report problems viewing sex films do not resemble any other substance or “behavioral” addictions. According to their own website, 90 percent of FTND attendees end up agreeing that “pornography releases the same chemicals in your brain as other hard drugs” compared to 43 percent who believed this prior to their presentation. FTND is advertising their ability to successfully spread false information.”
“FTND claims they use ‘peer reviewed science and research’ to back their information. A ‘sex/porn addiction’ diagnosis does not exist in the DSM-5, which was explicitly rejected for ‘lack of scientific evidence.’”

I like the idea of #FOSS projects having a #BDFGS, a "Benevolent dictator for getting started". It's what the bevy project does. This way you get the project started and on it's feet so that when the community takes over and makes cooperative decisions, the core vision is already baked into the project.
