I disagree with the premise that watching porn is disrespectful to women. Sex work is legitimate work, and nearly everyone in the porn business is there because they have chosen to be. Acting like their work is somehow "disrespectful" is, in itself, disrespectful.

So, if you don't want to be disrespectful, maybe start by not being so judgmental and patronizing.

porn turns women's bodies into a commodity to be bought and used at the behest of men... of course its inherently harmful to women 

That's simply not true.  It's a super outdated opinion that is not supported by fact.  

In reality, women consume tons of porn - about 40% of it, last time I checked.  So, your basic premise, that's its men exploiting women,  is just wrong.  Also, saying "of course" doesn't actually serve as evidence.
