A Porn in Your Side

Witnessed this, wish I could have said it so well.

  1. It was always going to be a problem from the moment we stopped making sex a taboo subject to talk about. We forgot we live in an exploitative society and that if anything CAN be made into a product it WILL be made into a product. We don’t want to go back to an age when sex was dirty and not a subject for polite conversation, but we bemoan the commoditisation of female-as-subject-of/to-sex. When will we learn that liberation is total or it does not exist? When will we be able, as a society, to understand and to deal with male sexuality as part of dealing with everything in our lives? When will we realise that we can’t make things ‘better’ for ourselves and our sisters in any system where power and wealth devolves upwards to a State or a CEO? [Who needs female CEOs and Presidents when CEOs and Presidents are the problem?] When will we realise that the fight to pull porn from the hands (hearts, minds) of our brothers is a fight to liberate them too, and that it can’t be won unless and until it is seen as part of a greater fight to liberate everyone from everything that oppresses us? Not standing for there being a female underclass is, to me, part of the realisation that there should be NO underclasses at all. Impossible in the world of Cameron, Obama, Milliband, and Romney.

    • Personally, I don’t think the online stuff is just about women, women are addicted to it, too, according to my guy friends. And I do agree we don’t want a rollback to a taboo age. We want health. Well at least I do. But sitting in a room whacking off to a computer screen is not healthy and can become so engaging as to substitute for the real world of human interaction. Men, women and children are all objectified, even animals as in bestiality. But I think the internet porn addiction is like a new drug/alcohol for some. They have no control and don’t know how to or don’t want to stop. Talin Orfali just wrote a piece on the failing manners in society. I agree. But I believe it is these very machines that have contributed to that decline of common courtesies and respect for humankind. In dimly lit rooms everywhere, people are glued to their glowing rectangles of life, often treating those they encounter in real life with same block/delete or abusive remarks punctuated by exasperation instead of an exclamation mark. As one who deplores “classism” of any sort, I understand your wish that there be NO underclasses at all. But we are only human and thus prone to repeating our mistakes (if history is any measure). We may not have liberation in the “total” sense but we do have individual choice in many senses. That others would apply those senses in an all-serving, higher fashion instead of a self-serving lower fashion is what I think might be the catalyst for a true, healthy liberation. But try and take the needle from the addict and the crimes escalate, try and take the alcohol from the addict and their kids or partner suffer more abuse, try and take porn which is as old as time itself though not so readily available as with the advent of the internet, from those who are addicted… I dunno… just tired and thinking aloud. Too many old boys clubs who think porn is okay, though it may interest you to know that a Phd holding, five language speaking Futurist friend of mine says porn is on it’s way out. Let’s hope so. It has destroyed enough marriages, including mine. But then I have to question my ex’s personal choices, he is accountable, or at least should be for choosing to partake in disgusting things that made me feel ill in my heart and soul. But then, it goes back to personal choice. If people stop choosing to buy it, look at it, use it or abuse others for it, it’s no longer a product at all.

Love and peace to you... your thoughts are always welcome here...
