Pornography is just a word like any other. It's meaning depends on the person and the context.
If you like porn and use it as an occasional escape, or if you don't like it and refuse to view it than either is fine. But if like anything else you obsess over it than it is not the porn but your use of it that causes problems.
As far as the degrading woman part.....I know many woman who enjoy watching it, and as you can see thousands enjoy making it. Taken in the right context it only demeans the person who doesn't like it. Typically, uptight, unattractive, antisocial, self righteous, prudish women who would rather stay home with thier cat than enjoy a fun night out with people.
