Found a perfect spot to escape the afternoon sun.
The United States gives 8.5 million dollars per day in military aid to Israel so anyone who still thinks America isn’t involved “per se” can eat my ass. The financial collaboration coming from the United States is exactly what funds and allows the illegal and genocidal Israeli occupation of Palestine.
If you like porn you are not a feminist.
I don’t care how “alternative” or “female-friendly” you think the porn you watch is.
Paying women to get naked and/or fuck in front of a camera will never, ever be feminist and calling it feminist when that’s the only thing women are valued for doing in a patriarchy is fucking idiotic.
Fun facts, feminism is about being able to do what you want without being judged. Please try again.
If feminism is about doing whatever you want and always feeling good about it, then what good is feminism? What is the point of a movement that refuses to acknowledge or talk about the unequal power structures that gave rise to the movement in the first place? What is the point of feminism if it has no collective goals or purpose? What can it accomplish if it fails to address the needs of the most vulnerable and disenfranchised women?
I just don’t know why you pro-sex industry people are so averse to doing research, or to having some compassion for the women whose lives have been ruined by porn. Many women who have worked in the mainstream porn industry have testified about the abuse, rape, and exploitation they experienced on set, women like Tamra Toryn, Vanessa Belmond, Danielle Williams, Jan Villarubia, Mahlia Milian, Shelley Lubben, Jenni Case, Corina Taylor, Jessi Summers, and many more.
According to your logic nobody is allowed to criticise anything, ever, because some women like it. It’s really arrogant and selfish to think that feminism exists to validate every shitty choice you make. Like there are privileged women who use this idea to justify harming and exploiting less privileged women, but who cares about that, those individual privileged women get what they want and it’s mean to judge them!
Female pornographers are guilty of this, yes, even so-called “feminist” and “queer” pornographers. Crash Pad, a porn website that sex positive feminists love so much, refuses to fire performers who have committed rape and assault. If I make people feel ashamed for watching porn, good; they should feel ashamed for getting off to images of rape and sexualised violence. Just because you’re a woman doesn’t mean everything you do is free from criticism or condemnation.

Do you ever think about all of the really nice drunk girls you’ve met in bathrooms and wonder how they are doing? I miss you all.
