Freedom from Porn: Steve Jobs Shapes Culture

Apple CEO Steve Jobs wants to offer “freedom from porn” to his consumers.

Steve Jobs has been making waves by saying that he wants the iPad and other Apple products to be “porn-free.”

Jobs has offered several reasons for this, but all of his statements seem to indicate a general desire to shape the culture of his company, as well as its consumers.

For a glimpse into Jobs’ views on the matter, I recommend reading his e-mail exchange with blogger Ryan Tate, which seems to be getting the most attention from the media.

Tate began the exchange by sending Jobs an e-mail that said the following:

“If [Bob] Dylan was 20 today, how would he feel about your company? Would he think the iPad had the faintest thing to do with ‘revolution’? Revolutions are about freedom.”

Surprisingly, Jobs actually responded to Tate’s e-mail, and his response included this jab:

“Yep, freedom from programs that steal your private data. Freedom from programs that trash your battery. Freedom from porn. Yep, freedom. The times they are a changin’, and some traditional PC folks feel their world is slipping away. It is.”

There are plenty of interesting facets to this situation — particularly regarding the recent goings on between Apple and Adobe — but what I want to focus on is Jobs’ statement about “freedom from porn.” What strikes me is that it echoes a Biblical concept that plenty of Christians don’t even grasp. I doubt that Jobs is rooting his worldview in the Bible (he’s a Buddhist), but I think it’s encouraging to see such a prominent figure making these arguments.

Save real womens sexuality from extinction

Hello lovely fellow females and feminists of the world 🙂

This is the beginning of a union to support, protect and empower women to feel good within our own skin, within our own sexuality and sensuality, and within our relationships.

This is the beginning of a platform for our voice to be heard and to know we are not alone in our desire for a world and relationships free from porn culture.

Thank you for joining in this positive mission for healthier self image and relationships, and healthier public images of women.

Here we will be heard and valued. Here we can uplift and guide eachother. Here we have a voice.

Feminists of the world unite

With love and blessings,
