Posted on 12/27/2010 2:39:52 PM PST by Michael van der Galien
Many people consider prostitution and pornography victimless crimes. This excuse deems both as sanctioned or permitted sex between two consenting adults. If this is true, why are many women and children trafficked and forced into sexual slavery? Why are many prostitutes victims of violent physical abuse and murder by those they work for? Further, if porn and prostitution are victimless crimes, why does the porn industry have an HIV/AIDS problem?
Those who view prostitution and porn as harmless sexual pleasure, say its no different than a man taking a woman out to dinner, spending the evening getting to know her as a potential girlfriend, and winding up in bed having sex. That is no different than paying a prostitute for the night? Every excuse is used to reach as far as possible in order to unearth more ways to declare porn and prostitution harmless and victimless.
Many consider prostitution and porn non-criminal, yet decry Americas history of slavery. What about sex slavery, which prostitution promotes? What about human trafficking, the selling of women and childrens bodies: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. Despite evidence, some call the industry empowering to women. Unless, of course, hookers and female porn stars receive less pay then men. In November, Salon quoted radical feminist Amanda Marcotte as saying:
The idea behind the porn is empowering! argument is that women who work in porn gain power in a pragmatic way, playing by mens rules, and feminists should support this for pragmatic reasons, because at the end of the day, women have more real power. And that would be a legitimate argument if the women involved had more power at the end of the day.

Taxation is slavery, too.
While disgusting and degrading, the blanket use of the term “slavery” is pure hyperbole.
“because at the end of the day, women have more real power”
As that Jeremy guy said in the film “Orgazmo”, essentially - porn exploits men, porn exploits women - porn exploits people.
Blogpimping is also viewed as a victimless crime.
Bwahahahaha ... but then Pablo is very wily, still!
Porn isn’t “empowering”, “liberating”, or any of the other BS. It is not, however, slavery.
Actually women are paid more per film than men. No data available on pay equity for hookers.
I beg to differ. I have retained an attorney and we will file a class action lawsuit against blogpimps. The popups and cookies on their petty little blogs are traumatizing.
Some are trying now - with Wikileaks, and the Porn argument to take control of the internet - IT WILL FAIL!
Using the bodies of other people as a means to an end is pretty much the definition of slavery. And despite industry propaganda, prostitutes and porn performers are almost never involved in these trades as a matter of a free, uncoerced decision.
Case dismissed yer jackwagon. Use your POPUP blocker yer pervert. Tissue?
.....still not “slavery”.
Pablo never sleeps.
Just a reminder. There is a switch.....
I agree with him and disagree with you.
Or the material could just be posted here.
Why would that be such a problem?
It’s slavery on the group installment plan, as opposed to the historic tradition of slavery as a matter of individual lifetime ownership.
Aren’t most prostitutes and porn gals come from families w/ sexual abuse?
I’m not saying all, but a majority of them do. I think it is sad.
