Doesn't have to be, unless you're operating from the premise that no speech is protected unless it is specifically approved by the Constitution. Why should we believe that? They took the trouble to exalt political speech above others, as it is an integral part of the political process of a democratic republic.

That doesn't mean you are free to declare images and speech illegal simply because you find it disgusting.

...Oddly enough, we seemed able to define it throughout most of the country's history. And we're able to define it in terms of this discussion. And everybody knows what we're talking about when they hear the word....
So easy even you can do it? Prove it. Define it, in objective, testable terms. Without scurrying to the shelter of unprovable assumptions, like "Everybody knows what porno is." They may think they do, as you do, but can you prove it?
