Ew this is gross! She says seeing porn is a taste of being a grown up, when in reality being a grown up is realizing how harmful porn is. She claims it didn't effect her, but she's defending showing porn to kids... Wtf?

I don't know how to feel about people who have internalized their abuse like this. I know they cope differently, but to actively normalize children seeing this is disgusting.

She's straight up lying when she says it didn't affect her. She dedicated her life to defending porn, and the objectification of women. It definitely affected her in a bad way.

She goes on to say that viewing it "influenced her ideas about sexuality her entire life", so she was very obviously mentally scarred in some way by the porn.

I think that the idea that it is always a detriment is a part of the moral panic that the right wing has created because children are the perfect victims and symbols of innocence in our culture.

This part is pretty good evidence that her brain's been fucked, because what the hell.

A particularly disgusting blog post by Prostasia, the pro-pedophile group masquerading as a child safeguarding group.

Some highlights:

I think that there’s this belief that children themselves do not have a sexuality, which of course they do. Not to say that it’s the same as an adult sexuality. It’s a developing sexuality.

And, of course, the socialization that pornographic materials can provide at that age can be interpreted in different ways. And my experience was of it being joyful and fun. It was an image of beauty and sexiness that influenced my ideas about sexuality through life.

Children may have a developing sexuality, but that doesn't mean that men are allowed to prey upon their naivete and inexperience.

I don’t think that children being exposed to these materials is automatically a detriment to their healthy development. I think that the idea that it is always a detriment is a part of the moral panic that the right wing has created because children are the perfect victims and symbols of innocence in our culture.

I have no words.

But they found they preferred the pleasure and play they felt in porn as opposed to dealing with death and illness as a nurse. Which really underscores that sexuality has such a power in our lives and doesn’t need to represent the end of things and the end of civilization and community as we know it.

It was also was about the flexibility of the work and the hours, the fact that you just have to work less.

I mean, a lot of people would really be happy to trade the 40-hour week or 50-hour week for a 10- or 20-hour week.

I'd prefer a normal work week than 10 hours of rape a week, Thank You Very Much.

Many performers want to be clear that they don’t want to feel responsible for sex education, because it shouldn’t be pornography’s job to provide that. They’re very wary of the moral panic about what porn is doing to children. But they do feel like a lot of adults don’t have a sex education, and don’t know what to do in bed to either express consent or give pleasure or receive pleasure. And some porn workers feel like they’re teaching these kind of things and teaching how to be a sexually desiring person in their performances and in the types of films they’re making.

You should never let your children learn how to have sex from porn, ffs.

I don’t want to say my work challenges that of some Black feminists, so much as it builds upon the conversation that Black feminists have been having. So I feel like I’m in conversation with people like bell hooks, Patricia Hill, Collins, Audre Lorde, Alice Walker, Toni Morrison and others, who were concerned with, pornography being another vector of white supremacy that weaponizes sexualized racism against black people.

And that’s a completely fair theory. But what I noticed is that none of the black feminist theorists who were talking about this actually talked to Black women sex workers.

Maybe she needs to interview the consumers of the porn and see if they're fapping off to it as an act of support for queer and black empowerment...

As a black woman myself, there is just something extremely nasty about this shit but I can't even bring it to words. I found this part especially heinous.

I think that the idea that it is always a detriment is a part of the moral panic that the right wing has created because children are the perfect victims and symbols of innocence in our culture.

and this part, my God. I can't even read anymore.

I'm not black, but I also found it disturbing that a woman is saying that her idea of beauty and sexiness was based on a hyper-sexualized image of a woman. The fact that she thinks this is normal is freaky.
