How is porn harmful to society? I'm just not getting how it's really as awful as your blog says.

Idk how you’re watching videos called “dirty teenage slut gets nailed” and thinking that isn’t a reflection on society. Or how the fact that teen porn is the biggest money maker in the industry doesn’t concern you. 

Abuse, rape, exploitation and coercion are huge issues in the industry and if you’re going to blindly buy into the ‘but they choose to do it’ thing then you seriously lack any form of critical thinking skills and your opinion is 100% meaningless.

The whole point of porn is that it panders to the old male fantasy that women like everything men do. It positions women as passive performers who gasp with pleasure anytime a man lays a hand on them. Porn is about things happening to women - men’s fantasies being projected onto women’s bodies - not about women participating in sex. 

This is a pretty huge problem for society considering how many people’s ideas of what sex is is based on their socialisation from porn. 

EDIT: Here are some stats about porn if you still aren’t convinced

When men say that they “love to see the woman underneath the makeup,” they’re not saying they want to see your leg stubble and greasy bangs—they’re saying they want you to be better at hiding your maintenance routine. Because the maintenance spoils the fantasy.

The salvation army is a religious organisation everywhere. They're a church.

I’m white and I hate my hair. But I will not be denied a job for my hair. I will not have random people wanting to touch my hair. I will not be asked if I have a weave. I will not be kicked out of school for my hair. I may hate my hair, but will not be persecuted because of if. White people do not need the natural hair movement.

9 questions about the Israel-Palestine conflict you were too embarrassed to ask

I’m just going to leave this here for some of you.

hey there, while i'm inclined to largely agree with y'all on kim kardashian, i noticed that one of the organizations she supports is the salvation army. i'm honestly curious -- where do the two of you stand on supporting them? it's something i've been conflicted about, because while i don't support their ideology or many of their actions, they also seem to help a lot of people. and with that in mind, would choosing to support other groups instead somehow cause more harm than good?

In New Zealand they’re less of a religious organisation than in the states so it’s less of an issue here.

We grew up reliant on their donations and I know a lot of people who have also benefited from their help so I’m inclined to be more grateful that they exist than anything else.

But I agree and acknowledge that they’re a problematic group and I probably wouldn’t choose them to donate to if I was in her position.
