"We don't know why porn stars should not teach children, why it's okay to watch porn but not be in it, why we should have to hide our involvement in pornography, or why we should be ashamed of it. These arguments apply, in differing degrees, to sex itself. All of these fumblings and misunderstandings are symptoms of a world coming to terms with new openness and connectivity. What could once be private can no longer be."

-- Porn star Conner Habib in a must-read op/ed for the Advocate. Habib, also a teacher, builds off the recent suspension of a Massachusetts high school teacher after it was discovered he'd been in a couple of gay porn flicks when a local FOX station ambushed him on camera in a parking lot.
