Porn, woman's domination, white man, whatever.


Last week I was at a home party and I stumbled on what I call a feminist squad. We were all sitting around the living room, when some guy talked about his sexual exploits with a girl and his story ended in (his words) ''I *****d in the a*s''. While his words were not classy, they sure were funny after a few liters of wine. A guy got angry and started lecture the whole crowd about woman's domination and so and so. He had his weird socialist friends approving him.

To make a long story short, he called me and my friends morons because we are what he calls 'white men', because we consume porn and because we dominate women. Here's my question; do you think consuming porn reflects a dominatrix stance? do you think porn ''oppress'' women and dominate them? do you think there is such thing as women domination?

The existence of gay porn kind of ruins the idea of porn is exploitation of women belief. I especially don't see what it has to do with white men. Do only white men look at porn? Of course not. Does porn reflect a dominatrix stance? Well, I don't think I'd use that word unless it's meant in jest. Is porn exploitative of women? Well I suppose that depends on how it's made.

Most explicit material is debasing. The only exceptions are Playboys 1979-81, and December, 1975.

My understanding is that pornography 'objectifies' the woman (or man); that is, it treats an individual as if they were an organism in an environment and not as a self in a world.

I guess I am a knuckle dragger then, I have a very simplistic view when it comes to women.

I respect them as life givers, as the mothers of men, as the beloved mates of men.

I respect their contributions to society, and think they should be allowed to vote and work in the force along side men.

I do not think they belong on football squads, or wrestling teams.

I frown when i see them not knowing how to cook or sew.

It is unacceptable that they forget that their primary purpose on this Earth is to give birth to our children.

That is just plain and simple nature.

Men do not exploit women by watching porn. Women exploit women by appearing in Porn.

Is the drug dealer at fault for selling the goods to a fiend? Partly, but if it was not him, then the fiend would go to another dealer. In the end we are all ultimately responsible for our own actions

Do any of these women have power marks on their heads from where they were forced at gunpoint to participate in these pornography videos? Are they being paid to perform such acts? I assume they choose such a lifestyle based on their own freewill and judgement and would speculate they are compensated according to the demand for their services.

I think your pinko friend should get with the times a bit. Women are embracing these roles, these days women it seems are proud of being 'sluts'. If you take away the clothes, which stay on only for decency laws still in effect, I couldn't tell you the difference between the modern pop star your typical 13 year old listens to and some tramp at the juice bar named Bambi.

I agree with you, Antocya, the porn depends on how it is made to conclude that it violates certain rights of the people, which is still argumentative in itself.

"Porn" has been around for hundreds of years and it is just an offshoot
of how men and women interact. No, I do not think porn 'oppresses' women,
they are in the power seat which the movies are about. I don't see
women who act in them coming out saying, "I hate my job, I feel so
oppressed." The only time one does say that, is after the industry has
kicked them out.

I don't wish to appear bias however I think porn objectifies women and not men... The porn industry is operated by men since it is in their nature to control obviously it shows in their work.

I am no fan of porn it is inhumane to women..."really"...two men on one woman front and back....it seems unatural

Perhaps it speaks of the ability of the women to test the strength of those men.
