    You can't say he's lying about Jennifer Lawrence.

    Sonnets are too much work. How about a limerick:

    There was a young fellow named Ken,
    Who appeared on a TV debate then
    Became a big meme
    And quickly was seen
    To devolve into a has-been.​

    The meter in the last line is a bit forced, with the accent needing to move forward ("de-VOLVE" -> "DE-volve"). The meter in the 2nd line could use work, too. But for the 2 minutes I put into it, I'll just leave it here.

    He was apparently guilty of being a normal, varied-interest and opinion human.

    Years ago, young kids with dreams of political service were taught to curate their life as to have a "clean and not controversial" background trail. Turns out, apparently you need to do that just to be a common person sitting in a red jacket during a town hall, too.

    Welcome to the internet, where everyone is bipolar.

    He was wearing a red sweater, not a jacket. This will be held against you (possibly in court) in the not so far future.

    I read the supposed negatives. They were boring. The guy was obviously broke at some point. He apparently likes to watch porn involving pregnant women. His reddit sounds like a perfect cure for insomnia.

    A sonnet? A limerick is more appropriate:

    At our candidate's second debate,
    Stood a man, dressed in red, and oblate
    Creepy porn, typed on Reddit
    'Tis true that he said it
    A deserved, embarrassing fate.

    You would think that he would have used a different name for his reddit AMA.

    What makes one type of porn creepier than another? It seems irrelevant in any situation that doesn't exploit the performers.

    How is any porn exploitive?

    That is a legitimate question and a fair criticism. But I guess I would push back by noting that one of the items commented on by Mr Bone is his appreciation of hacked nude photos of actress Jennifer Lawrence.

    This is just my opinion, but pornography that takes advantage of people photographed covertly or in a situation they expected to remain private crosses into "creepy" territory. "Upskirt" or "changing room" videos and the like.

    I agree, but I suspect a lot of that is staged. Creepy images aren't worth enough money for most people to risk jail time. I could see the use of "creepy" applied to leaked nudes as well. I don't like to see the other topic regarded as creepy, because it doesn't hurt anyone. It also ensures that otherwise financially solvent adult performers are not out of work for 6 months or longer during an expensive period of their lives.

    edit: I apparently missed the Jennifer Lawrence part. I hit submit before realizing I didn't recall reading that. It's in a different section, and I grew bored before that point. I guess I misinterpreted you.

    I was allowing for edge cases. The only ones that immediately come to mind are illegal forms of pornography. I phrased it this way to contrast the notion of "creepy pornography." That's all really.

    I'm tracking now. In my mind illegal =/= porn.

    That's a fair assertion, given the modern use of the word. I could have stated "illegal content." I also considered that I may not have thought of everything.

    If I saw the photos I would probably appreciate them too. Would people be more affended if he commented that she was ugly.

    Then they would blast him for body shaming.

    All I got is a couplet:

    After discussing red sweater insurance with Florence
    Ken relaxed by fapping to Jennifer Lawrence
