While this concerns the proposition to decriminalize sex work in San Francisco, this possibly historical vote affects sex workers all over the country. Whenever morals are trotted out within the public sphere, especially within politics, it is inevitably about controlling sexual behavior of adults. The anti-Prop K argument that the ordinance will ignore abusive pimps and allow organized crime to gain a stronger hold on prostitution is absolutely ridiculous.
The latter was used to try and keep the prohibition of alcohol going as well and similarly, this argument can be easily stripped. Exactly where in the proposition does it say that offenses such as rape, kidnapping, slavery, coercion, theft, blackmail, murder or assault will be legal? Nowhere it does. In fact, because of the criminalization of prostitution, the law has implicitly made such actions legal by the simple fact that when a prostitute suffers violence the police and the courts look the other way.
Carry on. This is where true morality comes in. Not the false morality that I described earlier. The morality that says murder, rape, kidnapping, slavery, coercion, theft, assault and blackmail are simply wrong. The morality that says when violent offenses are reported when possible by the survivor, the offenders are tracked down and brought to justice. The morality that truly does worry about what examples we are setting for children: that some people can be mistreated by society and at best we all ignore it.
The morality that is concerned with human rights. Oh yeah, the pimps and traffickers and violent johns are gonna LOVE Sex workers Evanston juhu She will be discussing consensual sex work and industry self-regulation. Come on out and support her! I originally posted this on my blog but since I attended the screenings officially as a member of SWOP-Chicago, I am putting it here as well. My review is obviously biased but it is not going to concentrate solely on criticizing the technical aspects of the documentary.
I have comments about the audience as well. The audience last night at DePaul seemed a lot more diverse and a little more genuinely intelligent. Perhaps I am being prejudice since I am a student there and since I have an enormous capacity for vanity since I know I am very intelligent then all other Demons school mascotby virtue of being fellow classmates are at least as equally intelligent.
And I am definitely not saying this to hint that DPU students who screened the film had the same reaction I did. However, the comments from all sides of the aisle sounded well-thought out and mature. At Columbia there were far too many pompous asses that were attempting to sound more learned than they were. No offense to other CC students me mum went there!
Content aside, my personal pornified views aside, the film was not objective. But there needed to be a balance. Personally, the most obnoxious non-objective element was the music. Bethdeath and I were ragging on it during the DPU screening. Mainly it is the music at the end of the film that was so melodramatic. I felt like I was watching a war film and the scene being shown is when the hero es fell in battle. Anyone who pays attention to music in fictional or nonfictional film knows there are cues.
Music is specifically chosen to underscore a point being made. Even in a fictional film, music being casually listened to by the characters is rarely, rarely accidental. There were many slow-motion or zoom in shots that were obviously chosen for pure shock value.
The dramatic re-enactment, which I felt was unnecessary, showed the pictures tumbling out of the book in slow-motion and this extremely dramatic music being played in the background. But the presentation of her testimony was manipulative. It would have made the necessary impact. But the slow-motion and melodramatic music? Not needed.
Of course both Robert Wosnitzer co-producer and filmmaker Chyng Sun fervently declared their objective status but with evidence like this, I cannot believe it. At all. Pornographic images certainly can shape perceptions and for some people they do. This also begs the question of whether or not this is a negative thing. It is negative, definitely, if you take the default view that pornography is bad. The way the question is phrase does not consider the possibility that the consumption of pornography will not shape the viewers perception of sex. Should porn shape perceptions?
Yes and no. I think it can be a good outlet to watch depictions of a sexual act the viewer may already have a burgeoning interest in or for people already participating in such acts, suggestions for variety but it the average porn is still not for educational purposes. Why not? David Law made the comment at the DPU Sex workers Evanston juhu last night that the movie was a bit misanthropic at times and I think he was pretty much referring to this.
The Sex workers Evanston juhu that people, specifically men, are just mindless automatons. That statement and opinion should be insulting to every conscious human being. As I was saying, I wonder if Ms. Paul asked what other images come unbidden during sex for these men? I doubt it is just those nasty porn images.
Other comments made could have been rephrased to still criticize pornographic depictions without condemning the entire genre were two others posed by, again, Gail Dines: 1 That porn is a way to understand relationships for people who watch porn. Not that it is a way some people who watch porn try to understand relationships, which would be accurate.
But all porn users, period. First, her use of the word whore as an insult.
Thanks a lot, Gail. Probably by tomorrow night. She also made a statement about the depiction of black men in porn that, I have to agree, is very racist in content, but I really did not want to dissect that one. Mainly because I kinda agree on that count. I say this as a woman who has banged many black men including the one I am with now. Their sizes are as average as any Sex workers Evanston juhu Tom, Harry or hehe Dick. But I will say that I appreciate the porn films that do make a more obvious attempt to mock and subvert and satirize the myth.
But they wanted to make sure to shock the audience into moral indigation with titles like Meat My Asswhich, speaking of, would serve the double purpose to disgust any PETAesque vegetarians or vegans viewing this of course, ignoring that Jenna Jameson is vegetarian and a publicized PETA supporter. These are the statistics given in the film upon serious analysis of its contents by people who know better than any of the consumers and definitely any of the performers or producers:. Now, all of this seems to obfuscate for the viewer of the documentary the fact that this is still scripted, often overdramatized fiction.
Personally, I have a problem with people voicing misogynistic comments in public and having violent actions that reinforce said words. She complained about what she implicitly thought was a false enjoyment by a female performer during a gagging scene and the apparent callousness of the male performer not stopping as she gagged but continuing with the scene.
Never mind, the gagging scene was the point fetish, perhaps? I would venture a guess that some sort of safeword was established just in case it went too far for the actress at that time. A good editor can make a single scene shot twenty different times look seamless.
All of the academics were anti-pornography and not one of them was pro. I asked Chyng Sun about this lack of balance from the academic standpoint at the screening at Columbia College today. She and Wosnitzer danced around the question and never actually answered it.
I asked if she tried to get in contact with Professor Nadine Strossen, Dr. Marty Klein or Dr.Sex workers Evanston juhu
