All porn is rape and you’re supporting an industry that profits on rape. I don’t want to hear about your chronic porn addiction, man OR woman.
ALL porn is NOT rape. Porn is only rape if one or more the people involved are FORCED to preform actions of a sexual nature or if one or more of the people involved are under the age of consent.
I’m laughing really hard. How the fuck is all porn rape? Jesus Christ people are going crazy these days. theanticlimactic is right; as long as no one is forced, their is consent, and both people are the age of consent, how is this rape? Because they are being paid it’s rape? Holy crap, people these days.
Uh, yes actually.
When the amount of money you will earn (and is being earned by primarily poor WoC forced into this “work” by a violent system of capitalism) is based on the sexual acts you will or will not do, it is not consensual, it is survival.
Pornography as an industry is one that profits on rape. All porn, by extension, supports this industry, and supports rape. By watching pornography, you too are supportive.
I actually do know what I’m talking about. Maybe pornography has stunted you in some way (as it does everyone) but that doesn’t mean I’m wrong. Get mad and laugh all you want, isn’t going to shut me up any less.
First of all, you are making the assumption that there isn’t anyone in the entire industry who does porn for fun, which is incorrect, especially incorporating amateur/etc. porn. There are plenty of people in the porn industry who love their job. There are plenty of people in the porn industry who have the option between porn and something else, and choose porn, because it’s the preferential option to them. There are people who see porn as a viable occupation. You’re ignoring all of those people. Talk to some sex workers on these counts.
There’s a huge difference between porn that is made illegally, without the consent of the actors or actresses or their consent to release the media, etc., and porn made legally and safely.
You are also disrespecting sex workers in general for putting “work” in “sarcasm” “quotes,” because pornography is work, it’s often hard work, and they get very little respect for it despite the fact that it’s a nigh universal industry, and then, not only do they have to deal with that regular bullshit, but they are now facing people like you who think that their “”work”” isn’t actually real work. Isn’t a profession. Or a business. Imagine how that feels. Your supposed “savior” walking in and saying what you do is bullshit.
Even if none of this were true, your “it’s not consent, it’s survival” is a godawful argument. In situations where consent is given, the circumstances don’t matter. She is (let’s assume, the vast majority of the time) sober. She is aware, awake, and lucid. She is a grown woman (or person of any given gender) perfectly capable of making her own damn decisions, without your belittling her and saying that these decisions were forced. That she had no choice.
Of course there are exceptions; there are always people who abuse their power. There are tyrant bosses. There are sexually abusive spiritual leaders. There are emotionally neglectful parents. But that is absolutely not anywhere near 100% of the time.To say otherwise doesn’t even make sense.
I’m not, I dunno, “angry” or whatever, at you personally. What I’m angry with is the fact that the savior complex ordeal has gotten to the point that you are actively hurting the people you are trying to help.
Blind generalizations solve nothing.
