So my mother thinks the new porn ban law in the UK is a positive thing.
She's anarchocommunist, and strongly feminist. (And a TERF, too, lol).
Anyway, her reasoning behind supporting the law is due to the fact that "kids on the Internet see awful things in porn like men cumming on women's faces, or (often consensual) struggle fucking, or ruthless fellatios in which the male grabs the head of the female, and then they want to recreate that with their girlfriends".
Like what the FUCK.
First of all, there are females (and males) who enjoy being submissive and receiving cumshots in their faces. As long as it is consensual, WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH THAT?!
Second. What kind of asshole does this things in a non-consensual way? It is very fucking simple. It is not about porn, it is about people being overly dominant and forcing others into certain sex positions.
Third... There's been studies that prove a decrease in rapes correlated with easier access to porn.
About those studies on more porn and less rapes:
Like WOW, WHO THE FUCK would have imagined that being able to jerk off in the comfort of your own fucking home would mean that you are relieved and therefore not need to force others for your own satisfaction, right?
Fuck this shit. I'm tired of bans, and laws that try to short circuit human psychology.
There will always be a way to bypass porn bans. Internet-savvy, 14 year olds with their hormones in full bloom will definitely find a way around this stupid fucking law. VPNs, Tor, whatever.
And actually, blocking porn access for them, I'm pretty sure, will just lead to dangerous sexual practices like disregarding condoms, and we go back 200 years of history.
This also applies to stuff like murder, for example. Making murder illegal doesn't mean it will disappear overnight (of course I agree that murder should be illegal but for a very different reason: Non-aggression principle. In porn, you're not exercising aggression upon anyone).
Drugs, as well. Drugs are illegal in most countries (except maybe marijuana), but there's still a black market for them.
And they think banning porn will work, unlike those other laws? Get outta here.
just pour millions of money into education.
i actually think porn in the context of pornographic industry as it is today is very harmful.
the thing is that issues connected with porn are not so black and white as saying if there's consent it's ok.
when there is consent on video it doesn't mean that there's no exploitation and a different power hierarchy at play here.
as one somewhere said: 'i'm against sex work, but will always fight for sex workers' rights '.
