None dare call it torture until the escape…

Shelly Lubben

It’s almost like ‘free-speech’ has very different meanings for different classes of people…

“Pornography is hate speech against women. If it was any other group that was made object to such depictions it would be rightly banned and decried. Again, I reiterate my point that when Bumfights was made, homeless and socio-economically disadvantaged boys and men were made to perform degrading acts on camera for cash. These videos were then disseminated and profited from. This rightly had a huge outcry.

Yet there is a several billion dollar industry that does this to girls and women every single day and no one gives a shit. In fact, men masturbate to it. The men behind the industry lobby politics and other industries to push their product (the commercial rape on camera of girls and women,) and continue to profit while girls and women on and off screen suffer for it. For men to get off to. That’s fucked up.”

“People say, “Oh, well, pornography—that’s for masturbation, nobody can get hurt that way.” But orgasm is a very serious reward, isn’t it? Think of Pavlov’s little dogs, right? They don’t just think about salivating; they salivate. They do it because they learned it. Period. Now think about pornography. The dehumanization is a basic part of the content of all pornography without exception. Pornography in this country in the last ten years has become increasingly violent by every measure, including Playboy, including all the stuff you take for granted; and every single orgasm is a reward for believing that material, absorbing that material, responding to that value system: having a sexual response to stuff that makes women inferior, subhuman.”

Against human trafficking? Against slavery?  Necessarily, you must also be against pornography.

brokenglassIn the United States, [pornography] is an $8-billion trade in sexual exploitation.
It is women turned into subhumans, beaver, pussy, body parts, genitals exposed, buttocks, breasts, mouths open and throats penetrated, covered in semen, pissed on, shitted on, hung from light fixtures, tortured, maimed, bleeding, disemboweled, killed.
It is some creature called female, used.
It is scissors poised at the vagina and objects stuck in it, a smile on the woman’s face, her tongue hanging out.
It is a woman being fucked by dogs, horses, snakes.
It is every torture in every prison cell in the world, done to women and sold as sexual entertainment.
It is rape and gang rape and anal rape and throat rape: and it is the woman raped, asking for more.
It is the woman in the picture to whom it is really happening and the women against whom the picture is used, to make them do what the woman in the picture is doing.
It is the power men have over women turned into sexual acts men do to women, because pornography is the power and the act.
It is the conditioning of erection and orgasm in men to the powerlessness of women: our inferiority, humiliation, pain, torment; to us as objects, things, commodities for use in sex as servants.
It sexualizes inequality and in doing so creates discrimination as a sex-based practice.
It permeates the political condition of women in society by being the substance of our inequality, however located – in jobs, in education, in marriage, in life.
It is women, kept a sexual underclass, kept available for rape and battery and incest and prostitution.
It is what we are under male domination; it is what we are for under male domination.
