Why We Take Up the Fight Against Pornography
The way in which women are viewed in pornography is a reflection of the way women are viewed overall in society, as objects to be used, specifically in this case, for the sexual pleasure of men.
Pornography cannot and was never meant to be a true representation of what sex actually is. It reinforces the idea that men, by nature, are dominant, and women, are to be dominated.
Porn trains young men to view women as sexual objects, available for the taking, and trains young women to believe it is their duty to please men sexually.
Porn fuels rape. And to take this even further, rape, and gang rape porn has become one of the most popular forms of pornography.
Porn turns women’s bodies into commodities and strips them of their full humanity. And yet you have a section of the intelligentsia that is firmly convinced that women deciding to get into porn, making the conscious decision to enter into the industry, are empowered, and no one can tell them otherwise.
In Stop Patriarchy, we understand the need to pull back the lens and look at the bigger picture of what is happening here.
