Because it’s about as misogynistic and dangerous it gets
Tw: Rape, abuse, choking, guns, knives, death, murder, violence, cuts, cutting, racism
For one thing, there’s sex trafficking:
Where pornstar B will go to do a porno and it turns out pornstar A has refused to do something (Anal, etc) and is Leaving, so the directors tell Pornstar B “You have to do this or you won’t get paid and we’ll sue you” that is sex trafficking. Also even though it is clear pornstar B is uncomfortable or in pain and wants to stop while doing whatever she has to do, she basically cant or else she’ll get sued, and the directors will continue shooting.
Another thing, porn features REAL people being abused, choked, raped, etc. And these are REAL THINGS HAPPENING. You can even find it on tumblr. You can see real women actually being raped. Not “rape play.” ACTUAL RAPE. With the caption “Showing my love for her.”
You will see women covered in bruises and cuts and black eyes, with a caption that says “Loved….”
You will see women being starved and hanging from trees. REAL PEOPLE.
You will see gifs of women crying. Gifs of women struggling to breathe. Real women being punched in the stomach and slapped in the face. Women being threatened with guns and knives. Women being suffocated with a plastic bag and choked at the same time. The captions all have “love” somewhere in them.
Real women are being harmed, and this is porn. And people are getting off to that.
And that’s just on tumblr. All those things above, I’m not just making up. I’ve SEEN all those things.
There are porn sites with captions like “18 and abused” or something else very harmful. Men will watch that and think it’s okay. That women enjoy rape, or deserve to be raped, that it’s no big deal. That this is how women should be “loved.” That we are objects for there amusement, and nothing else.
There’s health issues. Your organs can literally come out of you. Anal prolapse, your anus can fall out and bed to be stitched back up. That’s just from sex, there are people being killed from the abuse. Women can pass out from being choked. What if that gun were to accidentally go off? What if their hand slipped while they are holding that knife up against someone?
Then there’s the mental damage. Trauma, flashbacks, emotional pain. All this can be from porn.
The racism. Racial fetishes. This is also harmful. Racial slurs during porn. People think this is okay.
This is all from porn. The porn being watched on websites. The porn being made into gifs on tumblr. The porn being taped and filmed without one’s consent. Behind closed doors.
There was a women who was murdered after her boyfriend tried to reenact a BDSM scene on her. This is the affect of watching harmful porn.
I’m all for people reblogging gifs of people have consensual, safe, sex, or pictures of genitals or whatever.
But the violence is not okay.
