(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #286 - Mail of a reader: Porn, capitalism and sexuality (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]
Thu, 4 Oct 2018 09:41:56 +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 ?
