Porn, Shame and Suicide

Posted on | June 18, 2014 | 14 Comments

Last month, I wrote about the death of Alyssa Funke, a 19-year-old who committed suicide two weeks after appearing in a porn video:

If you do porn, it’s going to be on the Internet, and if it’s on the Internet, everybody’s going to see it. There is no way you can have a “secret” porn career in the Internet age, so if you’re going to do porn, just get used to the idea that your high school friends (and your high school enemies) are going to find out about it. Your parents, your teachers, your brothers and sisters, your aunts and uncles, grandma and grandpa — everybody you know is going to see what you do, got it?
If that doesn’t bother you, OK. But if you don’t think you can handle the reaction, maybe you shouldn’t be doing porn.

This is just common sense, but feminism is profoundly hostile to common sense, and so the feminist commentary on Alyssa Funke’s suicide was focused on the “slut-shaming” and Internet “bullying” she experienced after her porn career became public knowledge.

Now, Amy Otto is directly attacking the pro-porn feminist argument:

The claim that porn is a “sex positive” activity for women does not reflect reality. Denying the internal shame and trying to re-brand it will not redeem people. . . .
Was this video an act of her “self-expression” or a sign of a girl in trouble? The suicide soon after does imply that whatever theoretical “empowerment” that was gained by allowing herself to be filmed having sex with a stranger certainly wasn’t positive enough to inspire her to continue with that career path.

    Maintaining your dignity and turning yourself into a human toilet bowl on video are two opposite things.

    I often wonder if these feminist loons have ever actually seen a porn movie.

  • Quartermaster

    I would ask if those feminist loons are insane, but we already know the answer to that one.

  • Colorado Alex

    Yes, but it’s all feminist porn, by which I mean ugly, tatooed lesbians and bad direction and lighting.

    Given that all PIV sex is rape, and the women who agree to PIV — and PIM and PIA — sex in porn videos are demonstrating their inferior mental abilities by thinking that they can consent to rape, shouldn’t they be shamed for their stupidity?

    The feminists are kind of trapped by their own rhetoric. If we are to believe Amanda Marcotte, slut shaming should be completely illegal never occur, because women ought not to be judged for their sexual choices, which they may exercise as freely as men.

    But if that is the standard, then choosing to do pornography is part of the whole; if they don’t defend the right of women to choose to do porn, then they have opened the door to legitimizing judgement about choices women make in their sex lives other than in porn. Thus, the feminists are trapped.

    Seen one, hell. If they knew even a tiny bit about how movies of any kind get made, they’d have more of a clue.

    Porn producers are aggressively recruiting young women on college campuses for the ‘Barely Legal’ niche. Which in the minds of feminists is way better than guys and gals fooling around at colleges because #rapeculture. And major trigger warning if the military recruiters are on campus. Those BASTARDS might offer to pay their student loans and turn them into upstanding citizens. And you know we can’t have that!

  • DeadMessenger

    I denounce you for your logical, anti-politiconormative thinking.

  • http://www.journal14.com/ Dana

    Clearly, I need Re-Education.

  • Quartermaster

    Frankly, I’d like to see mansluts shamed as well. A lot of guys who lived like that come to their senses, get married, then wonder why they can’t deal with a decent woman as a wife. There are serious consequences to both sides when people use each other and then cast them off once they get the “notch in their gun.”

  • Quartermaster

    We’ll start tomorrow. Report to the reeducation camp at Rugby, TN forthwith!
