The messages conveyed by pornography about women are just as insulting and dangerous as the media message that all Muslim men are abusers or terrorists

With regards to demands for more research into the reasons why groups of Muslim abusers appear to abuse mainly white women (Call for study of sex abuse by ‘boyfriends’, 11 August): misogyny is to be found in all cultures, religions and nations. While holidaying in Morocco, my female friend and I were spat at and verbally abused by locals. A Moroccan friend pointed out the “white man’s porn” factor in all this. For years, porn featuring white women has been sold widely in Islamic countries. Those locals will have seen white women as we are represented in porn. Conclusion: we’re all “whores”. The messages conveyed by pornography about women are just as insulting and dangerous as the media message that all Muslim men are abusers or terrorists.
