(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #286 - Mail of a reader: Porn, capitalism and sexuality (en, fr, pt)[traduzione automatica]

Date Sat, 29 Sep 2018 11:41:59 +0300

Following the article " feminist frames for a cinema X " in Alternative libertaire of March, a reader wished to react. The monthly Alternative Libertarian publishes articles that reflect the orientations of AL, but it is also enriched sometimes with other points of view and analyzes, if they do not seem antagonistic. It is right that some articles are debating. AL Commission Commission. ---- After reading the March monthly article titled " Feminist Framings for a Cinema X ", I wanted to address the many weaknesses he suffers from. ---- First by putting on the same level feminism says prosex and radical feminism, which allows to read without flat " the essentialist theory according to which sex and gender are clearly defined ". I remain in doubt about sex and what underlies the will of transition, on the other hand no doubt the social sex (gender so) is a reality and we are all built in a clearly defined role. That we can develop it, leave it partially individually will not prevent women from being less paid and victims of violence. Until today, it is the basis of the radical and materialistic feminism of libertarian Alternative.

Then with a poor analysis of porn. What is the porn for ? To make the men bandage (and to wet the women if the images were more intended for them). How do we excite humans ? With the representation of their fantasies, even the most unconfessed. Are fantasies humanly and politically correct ? I let each and everyone judge in the secret of his imagination. But fantasies are probably like the rest influenced by the social context. Should fantasies come out of the intimacy of the brains ? In capitalism yes, anything that attracts and allows to sell advertising or objects is desirable.

What are the other problems posed by porn ? They are colossal. First, teens learn about sexuality and believe it's the real sex life. Combating this education with violence on the one hand, and the submission of the other, requires sex education and real consent, and is very present at all ages of schooling ; by condemning violence, social and judicial; by an education for the autonomy of girls and women and the normal variety of bodies and vulvae. Then the actresses are mistreated. Because the situations filmed can not be in good conditions for the body of the actresses. Porn is closer to the prostitutional system than cinema. And here you need controls, regulations and penalties. Maybe porn cinema will disappear in these conditions, it's okay, fantasies are intimate.

Can there be a feminist porn ? We come back to the question: what is the use of porn ?
