Here’s a great essay about how pornography contributes to violence against women and misogynist behavior and abuse.
Sexism and violence, prevalent parts of our society, have been leading factors in creating a male-dominated porn industry; it is designed to satisfy the desires of men who do not care for women. By encouraging violent behavior and sexual abuse in productions, this industry is sending a very negative message to society. Male behavior should, according to porn, be violent, dominant, aggressive, and tough; young males end up internalizing those standards for male behavior instead of developing on their own. The pornography industry promotes domestic abuse against women and creates twisted delusions of masculinity.
Sadly so true!
This essay was written by Emma-Li Thompson (@ehmmali), a supporter of AntiPornography.org who is a student at Arizona State University. It was Emma-Li who arranged for our volunteer Jessica Mendes to speak to her Women’s Studies class about Jessica’s harmful experiences doing porn. We recorded that very moving and informative speech in this video here:
We’re very glad Emma-Li reached out to us, and we’re thankful that she has been stepping up to do her part to take a firm stand against the harms of pornography and to educate others. Emma-Li will be doing some free-lance volunteering for our organization later this year, and we’re very happy about this. She is setting an excellent example to everyone of contributing to this cause in a much needed way, and we sincerely hope that others will follow her example. (It is necessary for more people to do their part to fight porn, or it will overtake our society even more than it already has!)
Thanks again for everything, awesomely anti-porn Emma-Li! 🙂
