Don’t delude yourself into thinking any aspect of porn and the porn industry is feminist.
If women really choose prostitution, why is it mostly marginalized and disadvantaged women who do? If we want to discuss the issue of choice, let’s look at who is doing the actual choosing in the context of prostitution. Surely the issue is not why women allegedly choose to be in prostitution, but why men choose to buy the bodies of millions of women and children worldwide and call it sex.
Philosophically, the response to the choice debate is ‘not’ to deny that women are capable of choosing within contexts of powerlessness, but to question how much real value, worth, and power these so-called choices confer.
Politically, the question becomes, should the state sanction the sex industry based on the claim that some women choose prostitution when most women’s choice is actually ‘compliance’ to the only options available?
When governments idealize women’s alleged choice to be in prostitution by legalizing, decriminalizing, or regulating the sex industry, they endorse a new range of ‘conformity’ for women.
Increasingly, what is defended as a choice is not a triumph over oppression but another name for it."

"I can’t even begin to understand women" well generally I start by treating them like individual human beings rather than a collective consciousness and then go from there
Really all you need to know about MRAs is that they’ll claim that rape culture isn’t a thing, and then threaten to rape you if you disagree.
isnt one of eminem’s most famous songs about him killing his ex wife?
yeah and he preformed it once when while enacting violence of a dummy DESIGNED TO LOOK LIKE HER at a concert HE INVITED HER TO SO SHE WOULD SEE IT which triggered her into ATTEMPTING SUICIDE. Like he is literal scum
you can preach about slut-shaming all you want, but you can’t deny there’s something very wrong with 13 and 14-year old girls going out in skirts and dresses so short they barely cover their asses and shirts with necklines so low they show off cleave they haven’t got yet, drinking and even smoking and hooking up with guys before they even have a substantial knowledge of how sex and sexual relationships work.
Thank YOU HOLY SHIT
WHY DO YOU THINK THEY DO THIS?? because this society is telling girls and women that in order to be WORTHY of ANYTHING they have to be sexual and attractive. THESE LITTLE GIRLS ARE NOT THE PROBLEM, THEY ARE THE VICTIMS OF A MISOGYNISTIC SYSTEM.
and SECONDLY if people actively and freely CHOOSE to dress a certain way can you please ask yourselves why on earth you would want to take that away from them?? this is slut shaming and victim blaming to the max.
do any of you even have a brain or????
EXACTLY, WHAT THE HELL OP???
"Rape culture is calling sexually active 12-year-old girls sluts instead of wondering who the fuck is having sex with 12-year-olds"
Seriously, not to mention, those clothes are being sold in children’s sizes. Those girls wearing the clothing they’re told to wear by society, the clothing that’s made available to them by designers is not the problem. The problem is a social system that sexualizes anyone it deems female no matter her age. The problem is an economic system that capitalizes on the exploitation and sexualization of girls no matter their age.
