Sports Illustrated Bashes Royals GM Dayton Moore for Anti-Porn Stance

You may have read about Kansas City Royals General Manager Dayton Moore taking bold, principled, countercultural action to educate his team on the harms of pornography.  As I noted in a column today, this decision did not occur in a vacuum.

According to Porn Hub’s own data, the world watched 4.6 billion hours of pornography in 2016, with the United States leading the pack, accounting for 40 percent of the site’s traffic. It’s not inconceivable that this dangerous trend has affected professional athletes as it has the general population.

Yet, Sports Illustrated magazine is bashing Moore for his anti-pornography stance in an article entitled “Royals GM Dayton Moore Makes Bizarre and Troubling Choice to Host Anti-Porn Activists.”

Mainstream pornography today is violent, degrading, and hateful. In our #MeToo culture, replete with sexual harassment and assault, it’s time we stop treating this awful material with kid gloves and expose it for what it really is. Moore is taking concrete action to change the culture for the better.

That makes Moore and his team strong role models and leaders. Use the following tweets to thank him for his principled stance!
