    Why your anti-porn/feminist position is wrong.

    1. The fact that all human life is equal does not mean that we should value women’s dignity… intrinsically.

    I was going to write something needlessly complicated here but let me insted state it as clearly as possible: the fact that both women and men deserve equal rights does not mean that you, the individual valuer, should value women’s welfare on an equal stand point as mens welfare. Which leads us to the next point…

    2. An indvidual can value the welfare of women and also value jerking it to porn.

    . I value the reduction of suffering of women. I value the reduction of suffering of women in the porn industry. But I also value jerking it to porn, and to me the value of masturbating to women being raped is more important than the value of reducing suffering of the women being raped in porn productions.

    Im just not emotionalist enough to change my supportin the porn industry habits because I feel bad for women. I am just to much of a realist, which is not a bad thing.

    3. The exploitation of suffering is universal: feminists and anti-porn activists do not have any higher ground on that issue.

    I was going to write so much uselles shit under this point that just thinking about it gave me a nose bleed.

      “Why your anti-porn/feminist position is wrong.”

      Well, this is a good start.

      “1. The fact that all human life is equal does not mean that we should value women’s dignity… intrinsically.”

      Yes… yes it does. How can two people be equal if one does not respect the dignity of the other?

      “I was going to write something needlessly complicated here but let me insted state it as clearly as possible: the fact that both women and men deserve equal rights does not mean that you, the individual valuer, should value women’s welfare on an equal stand point as mens welfare. ”

      Yes it does. I have no idea why you’d even pretend otherwise.

      Don’t bother writing anything even more complicated, as your premise is simply wrong.

      “Which leads us to the next point…”

      Which is already wrong.

      “2. An indvidual can value the welfare of women and also value jerking it to porn.”

      HAHAHAHA no. No, dudebro. You don’t give a shit about women.

      “I value the reduction of suffering of women. I value the reduction of suffering of women in the porn industry. But I also value jerking it to porn, and to me the value of masturbating to women being raped is more important than the value of reducing suffering of the women being raped in porn productions.”

      Ooooh. So you DO care, but you care LESS than you care about masturbating to women getting raped. Delightful.

      “Im just not emotionalist enough to change my supportin the porn industry habits because I feel bad for women. I am just to much of a realist, which is not a bad thing.”

      No… there’s nothing realistic or rational, or even sane, about wanting to see women getting raped and caring about that more than about the actual rape. You are a sick, sick person and I hope you get put down or put in jail before you hurt anyone.

      “3. The exploitation of suffering is universal: feminists and anti-porn activists do not have any higher ground on that issue.
      I was going to write so much uselles shit under this point that just thinking about it gave me a nose bleed.”

      Yes, “useless shit” is how I would qualify you, dude. You are useless shit. Best care scenario, you’re a really stupid troll. Worse case scenario, you’re an actual misogynistic sociopath who will probably go apeshit and kill people some day. Either way, I’m sorry you’re so deeply fucked up.

        Is it just me or does is his comment so ridiculous it could be a parody?

          I really hope so. He also emailed me asking me to reconcile my position with an old Youtube video of mine. I just blocked him. I really have no intention of having any further discussions with this bird.
