Zero Tolerance

I'm making myself clear. Porn is porn is porn. There is no such thing as "good" porn, "feminist" porn, "woman centred" porn etc. I make no apology for my opinion. I'm feeling a little outnumbered these days though...

Bad news: you're very outnumbered.

Good news: you're not alone. There's a bunch of us who agree with you!

Bea said...

Some more good news: you are right.

In case being right doesn't keep you warm on a cold day: as Spotted Elephant said, you're not alone.

Porn generates as much revenue as football, baseball, basketball and hockey combined. Lumping all porn together is like lumping all sports together. It's not all the same.

Pippa said...

Thanks you women! And pornstudent, yes porn IS all the same. Exploitative, revenue garnering, theoretical and practical rape. It DOES all come down to money.

Arriving late (as usual) to say you got me too.

"Lumping all porn together is like lumping all sports together."

Where do you find these geniuses Pippa?

I'm with you too. I think some women amend their views because it's easier than accepting the fact that their boyfriend is an ass.

"I'm with you too. I think some women amend their views because it's easier than accepting the fact that their boyfriend is an ass"

I've done that, many moons ago but still....

pornstudent said...

An example: Guys who take pictures of their penises and anonymously send them to websites. No women involved. It's not theoretical or practical rape, hence, it is not the same as porn that is theoretical or practical rape. The website may or may not be making money.

The vast majority of porn is about money. Except for what we grow ourselves, so is the food we eat. But within the marketplaces of porn and food there is a lot of variety.

Maybe, by definition, all sports is competitive, but families can still enjoy a game of badminton while the Olympic gymnast risks permanent injury to win a medal. Some who think competition is harmful to individuals and society may never enjoy a game of anything.

Mr. Morgan said...

So you can make porn acceptable by just extending the definition to things that patently are not porn? Ingenious!

Looks like now we can end hunger, genocide, imperialism, race hate...

Heart said...

Right there with you!

i'm on your side too, pippa!

"I think some women amend their views because it's easier than accepting the fact that their boyfriend is an ass."

i'm in 150% agreement with this statement, jo!

shannon said...

If the men are sending pictures of their penises to women unsolicited over email, they are jerks. Just randomness, I apologize if I've been annoying.

Anonymous said...

I'm with you on this one too Pippa! As high a percentage as you like!

re: ass-boyfriends and porn - I accepted it in the past, but not any more! It's crazy how uneducated people are about porn. For a long time (and still somewhere in my niggle-pile) I conducted long rants at my boyfriend about his past use of porn, and about how it damages women and the lives that women lead who get into porn, and the covert coersion of women by society to think porn is empowering, and he actually said [paraphrase] "you're totally right, I am so sorry, I had never even thought of it like that before"...well that's what you get when you're brought up by television I guess!

I digress...PORN IS PORN yes yes yes!

Anonymous said...

sorry, couldn't leave a comment as my actual name, would only work anonymously for some reason - that was me, Grace, with the rants at boyfriend and total agreement.

pornstudent said...

shannon,
There are porn sites that want men to send pics of their penises.

Mr. Morgan,
This post is about porn all being the same, not whether it is acceptable.

Pippa said...

Pornstudent, I think the fact that I pointed out that there's no such thing as "good porn" makes it clear which side of the fence I'm on. This post is about my expressing that porn is all the same, ie offensive and degrading. Thanks all of you for affirming my thoughts!

FallingStar said...

I totally agree. I feel outnumbered too but yes, like spotted ele says, we are not alone - we have each other. I feel glad about that every time it all gets me down.

And I agree about the boyfriend thing. I didn't accept it with my partner, and our relationship is much better because of it. Its all the same, the buying and selling of female bodies, thus the implication that all women can be bought and sold. And it warps sexuality, especially if viewing porn from a younger age (teens etc).

Aston Villa rode their luck at Hull City where an 88-minute own goal from Kamil Zayatte saw them leapfrog three points clear of Arsenal and into fourth place in the Premier League wow gold with a 1-0 win.

Villa had to survive Hull penalty wotlk gold appeals for a handball against Ashley Young in time added on, television replays showing that referee Steve Bennett wow gold correctly rejected the claims after consulting a linesman.

Bennett had been involved in controversy after just five minutes when American goalkeeper Brad Friedel looked to have handed Hull the initiative and threaten Villa's return to the Champions League qualifying wow gold zone.

Friedel spilled wow gold the ball under pressure from Nick Barmby and stand-in right-back Nigel Reo-Coker turned it into his own net as he attempted to wow gold clear.

But Bennett cut short wow gold celebrations at the KC Stadium -- and let Friedel off the hook -- when he ruled out the score for an wow wotlkapparent infringement by Barmby.

Zayatte's intervention from a Young cross bound for wow gold Gabriel Agbonlahor then saw Villa leapfrog Arsenal and draw level with Manchester United on 38 points -- seven adrift of leaders Liverpool and four wow gold behind Chelsea.

Stung by an on-pitch dressing down wow gold by manager Phil Brown at Manchester City last week, Hull showed five changes and a vastly improved performance.

Promoted Hull were looking for only their second win in 11 games while wow gold Villa arrived unbeaten in seven and it looked to be heading for a goalless draw when the home side suffered a cruel late blow.

Dimitar Berbatov buy flyff gold scored the only goal as Manchester United beat Final Fantasy XI gil Middlesbrough 1-0 at Old Trafford on Monday buy cheap ffxi gil to move to within seven points of Premier League ffxi gil leaders Liverpool -- with two vital buy Warhammer gold games in hand.

The Bulgarian Warhammer gold international striker fired home a volley from close-range in the buy Warhammer gold 69th minute to give United the victory, leaving Middlesbrough deep in relegation trouble just one place above Warhammer gold the drop zone in 16th place.

Prior to the goal, United wow po had missed a host of chances as Middlesbrough's wow or defense held firm, but the deadlock was wow po finally broken when Michael Carrick's wow or left-wing cross bounced back off Boro defender wow geld David Wheater into Berbatov's path.

Berbatov, Wayne Rooney, wow geld Cristiano Ronaldo, Rafael, wow gold Nemanja Vidic and Ji-sung Park had earlier all squandered chances buy wow gold against a determined Middlesbrough side.

Rooney should have given the wow gold hosts the lead when he sprang world of warcraft gold the offside trap in the 35th minute but inexplicably chose to pass rather wow gold than shoot.

Then, two minutes wow soldi before half-time, defender Chris Riggott wow gold produced a superbly-timed block inside the penalty area to deny Berbatov buy wow gold just as he was about to shoot.

After Berbatov's goal,wow gold Park produced a contender world of warcraft gold for miss of the season when he wow gold somehow ballooned over the wow oro crossbar from just three yards out from substitute wow gold Gary Neville's cross.

But, despite not adding buy wow gold to their tally, the three points were United's wow gold and their next league game is now against second-placed Chelsea, who are just four points ahead wow power leveling of Sir Alex Ferguson's side

I have sought it, wow gold because it relieves loneliness--that terrible loneliness in which one shivering consciousness dog clothes looks over the rim of the world into the cold unfathomable lifeless abyss.

There is lesbian porn made for women, by women. How does this exploit women? Yes, mainstream porn is disgusting, but I haven't read an explanation here about what makes porn inherently vile. Porn exists in which consent is clearly, and enthusiastically given, and all parties involved genuinely enjoy themselves. How is that related to rape? (This is not a rhetorical question, I would really like to understand your statement more clearly.)
