There is such a thing as having a sex addiction while never having seen pornography. You can have a “wet dream” without ever having seen pornography. You can start masturbating at an early age without ever having seen pornography. You can get the idea of raping someone into your head without ever having been on the internet. You can use an item as a sex toy without ever having owned a sex toy.
I have no problem with adult entertainment. Keyword of that sentence being “adult”. What consenting adults chose to do with other consenting adults is not my business. I will, however, always take issue with child pornography, Bratz dolls, Monster High Halloween costumes intended for girls, sexy Halloween costumes for underage teens, men who sign up to the US army specifically for the chance to go to brothels in other countries where children are on the menu, Youtube allowing young women to make content about how great it is to be a cam girl or have an only fans, the fact that only fans and cam model websites having affiliate links for one to become a sex worker, and the fact that Netflix still has not removed the film “Cuties” from their collection.
I am fully aware that the only actions I can control are my own.
It doesn’t matter how many heathens you burn at the stake. You can put out as many “call to actions” as you want about the things going on in this world that you want to see gone, but you will always make an impact and change the minds of some of the people listening to you, never all of them. Even Giliad in “The Handmaid’s Tale” has a black market.
Even Giliad allows prostitution.
You want to change the world for women and children so badly?
Baby steps. That’s the only dent most of us will ever make for whatever cause we are fighting for, let alone women’s rights is baby steps. This “all or nothing” attitude has been, is, and will get us nowhere. The infighting that continues to go on about who is the correct leader for the cause is getting us nowhere. The factioning off into little microcosm communities both online and offline while stubbornly refusing to, at the end of the day, put personal bullshit aside once and for all and fight for the greater good is getting us nowhere. Pushing aside male allies who genuinely want to fight for these causes is getting us nowhere. The “greater good” that we need to put first is children.
Swallow your pride, stop bickering. Do work.
Yes, my thoughts are a complete cluster f*ck of word vomit when I talk about something I really care about. I am well aware of that, thanks. It is part of the package that is me.
