"how does porn damage ME?"
“how does porn damage the women that participate in it?”
its not a coincidence that the first line is usually coming out of the mouth of a male porn user. even when learning about the damages of porn they seem to…
oh look a choice feminist! many of the ‘performers’ are coerced into performance, raped, addicted to drugs, trafficked. i care more about the damage the industry inflicts than the very few privileged porn stars who ‘chose’ their careers. come the fuck on.
And yet you still aren’t providing any sources like Colors asked.
I also never said that the porn industry was perfect, in fact if you actually read what I said, I did in fCt acknoweldge that these things happen BUT the porn industry. Is. Mammoth.
It’s. Fucking. Huge.
You can’t apply what happens in part of it to the whole.
There are so many different studios and directors with more emerging all the time.
So unless you happen to work IN the industry, maybe not speak for all the actors/actresses that DO enjoy their work.
i havent provided sources bc you can go into my anti porn an porn critical tag or do research to learn if you care to, whereas i know better than to actually invest time in people who prioritize the concept of free choice or exceptions to the rule that theres an industry that profits off womens bodies and abuse.
So that a no you don’t have any credible source then
really? you looked through my entire tag filled with STUDIES UPON STUDIES? here are a couple to keep you busy
There aren’t even any links TO the studies in that post or the people that conducted them
you can’t google???? you don’t seem to want to learn although I’m taking my time to point you in a direction. This is the thing though, you guys don’t want to think that it *might* be a harmful industry (to both performers, consumers, and a society that gets more and more exposed to porn to the point that it’s mainstream). You’re not willing to read the facts. I supported porn too once until I learned the sad reality of it all. Don’t be willingly ignorant because you don’t want to be wrong.
here are more studies with plenty of links
critique of the gay/lesbian part of the industry
a short but to the point psychiatric/social study
a video for good measure, have you not read/watched ex porn star testimonials?
this is also really important, gail dines is a sociologist who focuses on porn and how it affects our culture and this is a presentation about just that - how it affects the mainstream culture to the point that it affects us even if we dont actively consume it (in the form of encouraging violence against women, rape culture, etc)
First link: A tumblr post full of quotes and statistics half of which are not sourced.
Second link: Another Tumblr post with the same issue.
Third link: Psychological study with a bibliography half of which a sources are from THE 80’s
Are you kidding me
No one Denys that there are some serious issues within the porn industry. I have said now three times that I am aware that there are issues within the porn industry (yes including racial stereotyping, gender stereotyping, sexual orientation and identity stereotyping and that some studios are really skeevy and yes some of the actors and actresses DO contract STDs/STIs ) HOWEVER, AGAIN, the porn industry. Is. Huge. And there has been a lot of progress towards making things safe and comfortable for the actors and actresses, porn made by and for LGBTQIA people, and awareness and prevention of sexually transmitted diseases.
And YES, just as their are Strippers/Prostitutes/Escorts/ect that enjoy their jobs, so there are porn actors and actresses that enjoy what they do.
and the porn industry has only gotten more hardcore and violent since the 80s - the 80s are seen as the softcore nice days of porn!!! you are trying to find literally anything to discredit the staggering evidence of links of porn to male violence against women both in and outside the industry
also just bc someone enjoys something doesnt mean its ok, for them or the others participating when it fuels patriarchy and rape culture and violence against women and so many of them ‘enjoy’ it bc they themselves have been abused and cope by re-immersing themselves in situations of abuse and feigning control
You have yet to give me a properly linked, recent, relevant source. Not a
You also claim porn is contributing to something that flat out doesnt exist (rape culture) and was co opted by radfems from prison culture.
You also seem to be incapable of the thought that people ACTUALLY IN the porn industry have been working to make it better for years. The same with other sex workers.
Your last insight is also incredibly incredibly insulting to…a lot of people actually.
“so many of them ‘enjoy’ it bc they themselves have been abused and cope by re-immersing themselves in situations of abuse and feigning control”
This sounds a lot like that shitty “interview” Tyra did with Sasha Grey where she slut shamed the entire time.
Rape culture and patriarchy were discredited by RAINN. At this point, they’re just buzzwords.
If you don’t have credible, peer reviewed sources, you can fuck off until you find some.
How did you people pass high school composition when you can’t even write a decent argument or find valid sources?
Nobody said that the porn industry doesn’t have issues. It obviously does. You can’t just say that the entirety of the porn industry is abusive because it’s SO FUCKING LARGE. No pun intended. Why is Stoya still doing it if it’s abusive and terrible? She definitely has enough money to stop. Also, do you know how many countries produce porn? Do you? Just think about all the people in the world that enjoy looking at naked people fucking. Just think about that for a moment.
Did you ever think that some people are exhibitionists? That they enjoy fucking on camera? That choosing to do so makes them feel good? If a woman wants to be filmed taking ten dicks in the ass, then she can do what she damn well pleases. Now shut the fuck up and go have an orgasm, you crabby little twat.
lmfaoo. yea compare one fucking performer stoya, the only example you guys can ever name, to the hundreds of abused and raped and coerced women. compare it to the exited performers that are brave enough to share the on set horrors.
youre comparing fucking on camera to the porn industry which is a false equivalence. im talking about the commercialized mainstream bullshit. its not simply about fucking. if you cant tell the diff between sex and pornography youre screwed. im actually an exhibitionist myself but that doesnt justify the porn industry at all. there are ways to exhibit yourself without abusing and raping women on camera and making a billion dollar industry out of it.
and patriarchy and rape culture are buzzwords? tell that to the entire school of social scientists that exist an write the peer reviewed studies about porn and its dangers and influence that you guys wont read bc it ruins ur flawed arguments. i have countless of links to studies and pdfs and books and videos all in my anti porn tag and i have also provided many in this thread and it seems no one has peeked the content, since apparently they dont exist. just do a fucking basic google search and you will find many. this isnt even a controversial statement anymore. this is psychologically an sociologically backed up.
but like im not even arguing w a feminist so idk how i can convince someone that doesnt prioritize womento prioritize the suffering of female sex workers over a few privileged mouthpieces for a corporate industry.
