She works. The view on porn she puts forward is actually very interesting and probably accurate but she comes at it from the wrong angle.
She should have added that he cheated on her so bi, straight or polka dot yellow she should LTB.
Also while I agree porn images can bypass rational barriers she almost makes out that we are innocent bystanders to this. Child abuse and rape can become acceptable, really? Should make us stop watching not be an excuse.
Also she lost the morality of the argument with the clear meagre that "making babies" has caused the relationship to breakdown and the poor menz do funny things
It doesn't read as if she was coming at it from the, "don't procreate with this inadequate" angle. It seemed more, "hold off until it's all sorted, as babies stressful, especially for your poor delicate husband."
Have never liked the Mariella Frostrup problem page. I think it's a mistake to give her a whole page, as she has to fill it somehow, and usually fills it by writing about herself. Also, I think her advice is quite often wide of the mark - she's not qualified to do this, after all.
I prefer Annalisa Barbieri in the Saturday Guardian, as she always talks to an expert about the problem first, so at least there is some sense that this is an authoritative answer.
Agree OP, she would get better advice on MN. But as far as I could see, as I got bored halfway through Frostrup's me, me, me rambling's and ended up skimming, she wasn't actually given any advice.
Don't read the Guardian so never read Frostrup's column before but if this is a typical example I imagine she would have to pinch her ideas from places like MN, as someone said up thread, as I can't imagine why anyone in RL would bother writing to her to actually ask for her opinion.
