Pornography in Canada[edit]

Pornography is (per studies) viewed somewhat universally by Canadian men and shown freely and openly (to adults) in cinemas and on TV. More Canadians are familiar with, and care about, their porn than they do about Canadian literature. In such circumstances, how could it ever be said to be not to be part of the culture of Canada, ahead of other things?? — Preceding unsigned comment added by [[User:{{{1}}}|{{{1}}}]] ([[User talk:{{{1}}}|talk]] • [[Special:Contributions/{{{1}}}|contribs]])

That is open for discussion, however you should not mark your non-minor edits as minor edits. See WP:MINOR. -- P.T. Aufrette (talk) 02:17, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
The article says nothing. Perhaps if the article had some sort of content by it does not help our readers understand Canadian culture in anyway. -- Moxy (talk) 03:21, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
It does have. I think the mistake was made to suppress it because of the minor/nonminor distinction & have reinstated— Preceding unsigned comment added by [[User:{{{1}}}|{{{1}}}]] ([[User talk:{{{1}}}|talk]] • [[Special:Contributions/{{{1}}}|contribs]])
Just to be clear you believe that the the wonderfully written and well sourced long article Pornography in Canada will help our readers understand the Canadian culture? You dont think one of the other thousands of articles should be here instead?-- Moxy (talk) 03:57, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
We're considering this, not some other (unnamed by you) aspect. Where we see TV channels dedicated to it, which is more than we see for other listed aspects (such as literature) we have to acknowledge its significance and afford it the appropriate space and treatment. Not only is it universally viewed by at least the male population, there are no fewer entrants in Category:Canadian pornographic film actor than there are in Category:Category:20th-century Canadian writers— Preceding unsigned comment added by [[User:{{{1}}}|{{{1}}}]] ([[User talk:{{{1}}}|talk]] • [[Special:Contributions/{{{1}}}|contribs]])
I didn't see pornography sections in articles on the culture of other countries or even in the articles on the cinema of countries that I checked (admittedly I only checked a few countries). Perhaps you should be making you arguments at a more general level rather than at the level of Canadian culture and cinema. I'm sure that if you can get consensus that pornography is a worthy addition to national culture and cinema articles around the world that the editors of the Canadian articles would also agree. Until then it looks like you do not have consensus to add it to the Canadian articles. Meters (talk) 06:15, 6 March 2014 (UTC)
WP:OTHERSTUFFDOESNTEXIST argument dismissed.— Preceding unsigned comment added by [[User:{{{1}}}|{{{1}}}]] ([[User talk:{{{1}}}|talk]] • [[Special:Contributions/{{{1}}}|contribs]])

It's clear from the discussions and/or reverts of your edits on this page and at Culture of Canada‎, Template:Culture of Canada sidebar‎, and Canadians that so far there is no consensus that pornography shoukd be given much coverage in Canadian cultural articles.
