Oh well. Who cares? I think they COULD be fake...but probably real. She could probably be a model if she didn't get into a rich school or even a blue-collar state school.

Yeah. You can't argue with that. It simply objectifies the person in whoever finds it objectionable.

Some women make a lot of money in porn, but most don't. Also, as an earlier poster pointed out, many of the women involved have incest, rape, etc., in their backgrounds. I think alcohol and drug abuse are pretty common, too.

Can there really be a debate that porn (99% of it at least) objectifies women?

The morality of it is another issue, but porn presents women as people with no function but to have sex. Maybe they do this with men, too, but since men are by and large the consumers and producers, it strikes me as less of an issue.

Any thoughts on gay porn?

I would say that gay porn does not objectify women.

I would tend to agree with you there.

I think there might be an instructive contrast between the two "genres" that I am too lazy to pursue.

Oh. Just saw this thread. I probably have a couple of thoughts. I'll read through the thread first, though.

Well, they are big enough. Don't take offense, take it as a compliment. I'm taken though.

next question: does xoxo objectify women?  :D :D


 :D

I think we already know the answer to this one...



It depends on the harmful effects of such a product. Should CVS start providing crack cocaine over the counter? Porn has some negative pyschological effects on its viewers and it might be addictive. Then again, i'm not a big fan of censorship...

But crack cocaine has negative psychological effects on anyone who takes it...not the case with porn.

For some reason, I laughed really hard at this, but very true.

You mean why is it relevant? It has an influence on their supposed power in the industry.

Oh, I get your point. Do you think it pertains to the original question, though?
