Are Hallmark Movies Emotional Porn?

Are Hallmark Movies Emotional Porn? October 11, 2018

Lately Lori Alexander has gotten repetitive and dull. Her site The Transformed Wife is a free flowing stream of daycare is wrong, women are weak and stupid toxic ideas that will kill marriages stone cold dead. But her writings have always been somewhat boring and prissy. What’s interesting as a rotten wedding cake frosted with plutonium and as healthy that has always been her commenters. One of them is busy making claims about Hallmark movies, you know those same movies that Lori has professed her love of.  The commenter brings up some interesting points. Are Hallmark movies emotional porn for women?

I have seen exactly zero of these films so I’m not qualified to judge. But looking at the channel’s movie listings with such gems as ‘A Shoe Addicts Christmas’  I have a feeling I’d roll my eyes or barf before changing the channel. Not my cup of tea, but fine for others.

Here’s what ‘Jeff’ said:

Needless to say Mr. Ken Alexander did not take to the idea that his wife had possibly been dabbling in emotional porn very well. Long conversation ensued with some crazy alegations on both sides. It raises the question that is it possible that even in fundamentalist circles are there not very healthy emotional coping types of entertainment that they are engaging in to survive the cluster do-si-do that their lives are?
