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.
(TW: sexual violence) I’d like to really show what I believe the men want to see: violence against women. I firmly believe that we [pornographers] serve a purpose by showing that. The most violent we can get is the cum shot in the face. Men get off behind that, because they get even with the women they can’t have. We try to inundate the world with orgasms in the face.
Bill Margold, porn industry veteran, quoted in Robert J. Stoller and I. S. Levine, Coming Attractions: The Making of an X-rated video; 1993.
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 liberation.
I just want to get really fucking high and listen to Young & Beautiful.
She’s not the only one doing the sex.
You are also doing the sex.
YOU ARE ALSO DOING THE SEX.
HOW CAN YOU JUDGE HER FOR DOING THE SEX WHEN YOU ARE DOING THE SEX ALSO.
