Pornography Part 4 ({LINK}


I was more than gratified to read the above which reinforces my own concerns and thoughts on the subject of pornography.

So----- it hits the main stream media and written by a man, to boot. He really does get it.

Now let's hope that it causes some serious debate.

It is long, but well worth reading, particularly the comments of the women in the shelter.

  1. I am buying this book: Robert Jensen - Getting off: Pornography and the End of Masculinity.

    Thank you for sharing it.

  2. The piece by Don Hazen makes the book sound really worth reading. Must get hold of it. Good point in the link about the increasing cruelty to women in porn being readily acceptable because the US accepts extreme cruelty in all sorts of other arenas. I must say the mounting cruelty doesn't surprise me - just another example of men's extremism and competitiveness.

  3. Hi Gaye:
    I will buy it also. You're welcome.

    Hi Nick:
    I agree, it spins outward from the invasion and the horrors of Abu Ghraib and Gitmo, plus I would add the stupefying hypocrisy of the politicians and the basic premise of the fundy Christian where women are merely vessels and subservient.

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
