    One of the best comments I’ve read on this subject was that if this is perceived as a necessary evil, perhaps it should be treated like national service, where everyone does their share.

    I personally think we should treat retail work that way. People are nicer to those behind the counter when they’ve been there themselves.

    But with prostitution and porn, it’s all about somebody else’s daughter. As Dworkin famously said, “This is not fiction; this is real. Freedom of speech for women begins with an integrity of the body that is true and real and honest and absolute. There are no exceptions. There are no exceptions for men, who are privileged, to invade. And there are no exceptions for women — which is to say: ‘Oh yes, you mustn’t do it to THAT woman. But do you see her over there? …Yeah, it’s okay. Do it to her. Nobody will miss her.’ We miss her! We want her back!”

        I totally agree. It’s the essential call-out to the pro-porn factions, though.

    The quote from Robert Jensen regarding the notion that it’s not about sex, it’s about men’s cruelty to women, is the main point shown, in my opinion. Mainstream women have surrendered and mainstream men have stopped thinking.
