Nudge nudge wink wink
Posted on April 9, 2009
Does the wife know you watch porn? Does she know? Does she? Nudge nudge wink wink say no more…..
The point I was trying to make in my 1 minute 22 seconds on CiF this week, was that while Jacqui Smith’s expenses claim is indeed shocking, and while it’s now pretty clear to everyone that there needs to be an overhaul of the entire system of MPs expenses to stop them taking the piss and ripping off taxpayers’ money in the way they have been doing, the porn element of this story is also important.
By which I mean that it’s not something that should be brushed under the carpet, and it’s most certainly not a joke, especially when you consider the harm and exploitation that goes with it.
Did I mention that porn also helps perpetuate sexist attitudes?
If anyone’s wondering what on earth I’m going on about, here are last week’s (4th April) covers from the Spectator and The Week.
Flipping eck, Cath I don’t know how you put up with it:
What should a man do when his wife is away for days and weeks away or shuns him: cut off his goolies, prick or take Oestrogen hormones to stop arousal and his libido? Or should he use his left hand to masturbate or watch a pornography video to induce emission? I should imagine men prefer to watch a video for a three hour stimulation and erection.
I would say to women, do not leave your husbands on their own and if you do: lock them in with a chastity belt on, and throw away TV sets and PCs’ from their rooms and blind fold them before leaving.
And if in doubt, shift the focus to tez menz:
Quoted from howsoonisnow:
The women are not exploited: they volunteer for the work and are well paid for their trouble – more than the men involved.
The people being exploited are the men who buy the stuff.
Can’t help but wonder if the commenter quoted by Poly Styrene agrees with the Taliban…
How very dare that person take a fine Smiths song in vain. But if you don’t want to be exploited, dewds, don’t buy the porn, simple!
Yeah, and I’m being exploited by the tobacco industry because it makes me smoke tobacco, not to mention fracking Rizzla.
Cath, I am spittingly angry right now. Look at those covers. Look at them. It makes me want to cry.
Can we do a joint post about this for LC?
To echo what Polly S said above, I don’t know how you put up with it either. It’s harrowing and intimidating. Even more depressing is that howsoonisnow got over a 1000 recommends. Howsoon’s torrid viewpoint shows once again how misogynists heap the ‘blame’, i.e. their own moral failings, upon women. If you followed the money, as he suggests, my bet is that it is the men in the industry who would ultimately be the winners. Yeah…jaw dropping I know.
Those images of Jacqui Smith are a disgrace. How the fecking hell do the hairy neckers get away with it?
I am really very very disappointed with the level of debate on that thread. I had comments cut for no good reason, one for apparently refusing to apologise to that arse Chris44. I felt no-one was listening to anything I was saying. I’m staying away from CIF until I’ve calmed down. Or until some more intelligent people start posting. Might be away for a while.
Biskieboo, I read all your posts that weren’t deleted and thought they were very good particularly the evidence about women who’d suffered abuse as children. I was a bit late coming to the thread so missed your early ones that had already been deleted, which was a shame.
I’d be interested to know Cath why you opted for the video option as I felt you didn’t get your points across as well as you do when you’re writing.
Basically because I was asked to give it a try BTH. I have to admit I was pretty reluctant at first, because I anticipated some of the crap I would get (and which I did get ie “you don’t like porn ‘cos you’re just jealous of the gorgeous empowered pornified women you ugly old hag”)
Now I know how it works, I’ll probably do it again: but hopefully next time I’ll be less nervous and a bit more articulate!
You’re a brave woman Cath.
They need to moderate the hell out of CiF and just ban all the offensive misogynists. Because I certainly can’t be arsed with it, and I’m an online opinion leader, apparently. As well as the most evol woman on the entire internetz.
All the party political inputs to the paying the price consultation, I either wrote or co-authored.
Feminism, as a lobbying engine, simply wasn’t there.
It is a bit silly to refer to the violent pornography legislation, because they have no intention of enforcing it.
Cath you were taking about Jacqui Smith as if she was seriously interested, and she isn’t.
She is just an awesomely stupid gimmick promoted way outside her envelope of talent
The foreword to this or that, I mean who with two brain cells actually cares?
For feminism to crawl forward, just ignore the scams.
Why refer to scams in your vid?
‘Officers will not actively target members of the public to track down those who own violent pornography banned under a new law, police chiefs admitted yesterday.’
They also use males in pornography by the way.
Jacqui Smith wants the FBI to deliver the few VP prosecutions, so if somebody would help Donna Hughes, JUdith Reisman, and Pat Trueman
That would be great, whenever you get the time.
The VP gets found with CP, (U18) supporting your general exploitation argument.
Gay brothels use kids ( malev as it happens) more often than heterosexual brothels exploit U18, being another point feminists are slow to action.
So 4 out of 10 for that, in fairness, I’ve done worse segments myself,
So what exactly are YOU doing gregory?
Sweet FA, and criticising feminism seems to be your only activities.
Lol. I got points?
They also use males in pornography by the way.
That’ll be the ones directing and performing the “pseudo” rapes then. Whilst calling women whores c*** and bitches, flushing women’s heads down toilets with a bit of slapping around. Reminding her to smile while she’s being gang raped and ejaculated on by half a dozen men but not forgetting to tell the punters just how much she loves it.
Yeah, we’ve noticed how they use men in porn.
“So what exactly are YOU doing gregory?
Sweet FA, and criticising feminism seems to be your only activities”
I am potentially the most successful anti-trafficking lobbyist in the EU. I have an international reputation for quality work.
To return to Cath’s violent porn thing, it is a fake law, the prosecutions will come from FBI identified child pornography issues.
Which on a collegiate level, vindicates Cath’s other argument, that porn isn’t separate boxes, and that CP is also form of extreme pornography.
“Yeah, we’ve noticed how they use men in porn.”
Half of organized child prostitution in London is down to a handful of gays.
AS far as I am aware only Julie Bindel has touched upon it.
Pornographers tend to view me as a ‘legit’ feminist.
Pedophiles tend to view me as somebody who doesn’t like their NCCL colleague Harriet Harman.
How did Harriet help me? she was working to legalize the most extreme pornography, have you read her stuff about child pornography?
The cure for feminist indoctrination.
That is about plea agreements, the NASUWT wanted to use the lower charge de jure as an authenticating instrument to make the top charge ‘false’.
So man convicted of assault is false accused of fabricated charge of indecent assault.
I can only guess at hoe much was spent defending that CEDAW concept, it was a fortune, and I had to raise all of it.
Absolutely critical feminist objective. To lose, was to lose everything in relation to the rape stats.
Where were you all with that?
You can thank me for that
“The expansion of the mainstream sex industry (more porn, more sexwork ads in job centres, more ‘adult entertainment’ venues) is basically counter to the equality between women and men we fight for.”
People in Ulster have put their jobs on the line to help you people in Britain with Jobcentre.
So do FOIs to the DWP in relation to the issue.
Send them to Tony McNulty’s e-mail addy. Because now is a bad time for Labour to be caught brazenly lying.
Ask how many illegal strip clubs have used the service. That is WITHOUT PROPER LICENCE and ILLEGAL
Rotherham, is a good place to remark upon.
say no more…
One leading feminist described me as the bravest person she has ever met. I just accept that I am likely to die in the cause of abolition and conduct myself accordingly.
So, I say potentially, and that is only fair, my status has however been voted upon, from time to time, and so there you go,
certainly it was with DWP, DETE, & DEL, and in Canada I was endorsed across the board. All of that being ‘Jobcentre’ style stuff.
British feminism, isn’t always in the loop, one of the (US) feminist arguments for being allied to me, is that I’m not going to be around long enough to be a problem.
‘Guess who he gets funded by? The Catholic Church. I shit you not. You could cut the irony with a child’s screams. But guess what? little sneakster that I am, I know where they hang out, Hell, I know where they live if I’m being really honest, and I’m in the mood for mischief. To quote a line from one of my favourite movies of all time…. The F*ckers will rue the day.’
A lot of feminists wrote to me, or sent flowers, when I got hurt the other day, most from the USA. It is not possible to be careful, in my line of work, with the pimps & etc. so I have to be lucky.
I’ve being human rights since the Franco era, I’ve been around the block, and I’m good at my job.
I also know about Harriet Harman, and she is very scary, I do wish grave political misfortune for Harriet.
“It cannot be assumed that men are bound to be an asset to family life or that the presence of fathers in families is necessarily a means to social cohesion.”
Most of the Labour party think Harriet is seriously deluded and has a slate loose,
Jacqui Smith on the other hand, is just not very good at her various jobs, & etc. the sooner she loses her Westminster seat, the better for everybody.
‘“I expect she thinks Michelle Obama will pop in for a girlie cup of tea and photo shoot,” was a typically icy observation.’
Harriet is a definite freak show.
