what you said was: "i don't respect women who don't respect themselves"
what you meant was: "i and society as a whole hold women up to ridiculous respectability standards directly relating to the "purity" of said women while hypersexualizing them at the same time and if you are a woman and don't fit my awkward monolith of criteria then i refuse to acknowledge your humanity"
what i heard was: "hi i'm a misogynist piece of shit, please punch me in my face"

Pornstars & Pornographers on the Porn Industry
John Stagliano, porn producer: "I was the first to shoot Rocco. Together we evolved toward rougher stuff. He started to spit on girls. A strong male-dominant thing, with women being pushed to their limit. It looks like violence but it's not. I mean, pleasure and pain are the same thing, right?"
Julie Meadows, ex- porn star: "This industry is full of people that hate - literally HATE women."
Vince Vouyer, porn producer: "The girls get torn up like usual."
Khan Tusion, porn producer: "Degradation drives the business. … There are things going on right now that are way over the line."
Brandon Iron, porn producer: "Where else but in porn can you see a guy who just met a girl that day crack her around, choke her out."
Docter Sharon Mitchell, Adult Industry Medical (AIM): "Things are getting more and more demeaning towards women. It's degrading. It's very, very violent."
"I sit there everyday and I sew up anal tears and anal prolapses and the physical conditions of what people are putting their bodies through is getting very, very far away from sexuality as we know it."
slay-z: that’s really the whole argument with cultural appropriation. white people trying to be cute and hip and down and “find themselves” or some mystical made-up shit with the things that are important and dear to us. it’s literally like someone wiping their ass with your family photos.

but i’m a radical black feminist because i don’t think that exercising personal choice (which is the mainstay of liberal feminism) is going to dismantle patriarchy. as in, even if an individual woman is empowered by porn i don’t think that’s necessarily a feminist issue because that’s not going to dismantle patriarchy. i also don’t think feminism is about equality. i think it’s about women’s...

"Act like a lady, think like a man." -
No. I don’t like this quote. I’ll act like myself, and think like a woman because I am a woman. What are we generalizing about women in this statement? And what are we generalizing about men? “Lady” supposes a poised, polite, submissive character. Note “act” implies a character… because it is fake, just part of a persona. This also highlights how...
