(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #283 - A reader's e-mail: the obscure clarity of feminist pornography (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 29 May 2018 08:50:12 +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 therefore fair that some articles are debating. ---- AL Commission Committee ---- Pornography would be ennobled with a new genre: "  feminist  " pornography . The sexual acts filmed would be respectful of women, centered on the diversity of bodies and desires, far from the phallocratic stereotypes of the public pornography. It is to forget that, whatever the adjectives and the decorations, the pornography is above all of the prostitution filmed.

Etymologically, "  pornography  " means "to  represent prostitution  ". It is also symptomatic that defendants of "  feminist  " pornography are also in favor of regulating prostitution and against penalizing "  clients  ". This "  feminist  " porn is especially a new commercial niche for egocentric consumers: they and they think to distinguish themselves by claiming a use of porn as we go to the organic market: it is more safe and respectful.

Down with "  the great capitalist productions  " was it possible to read  ! How can we not see a recovery of the revolutionary power of feminism in the face of the danger it represents for this industry  ?

Pornography is a component of the pimp system that relies on the sexual exploitation of women, such as prostitution or surrogacy. Whether it is  feminist  or not, someone is paying someone for the use of their being and their body. This is an economic constraint in the vast majority of cases. The constraint to characterize rape, anyone benefiting from these crimes (customers, producers, broadcasters) is complicit.
