My feminism is radical and inclusive of all women and girls. I do not believe consent can be bought, and therefore I cannot support the normalisation sex work. This is not to say I do no suport sex workers. The majority are unfourtunatly the survivours/victims of human trafficing and I hope they are able to find a way out. Because of this, I support policies that would help these women find help to leave or make them safer while criminalising the sex buyers. This is reflective of my views on porn.
I do not believe that womanhood=femininty. Femininty is a cage women have been placed in and the end of gendered expecations of masculinity and femininty will aide our liberation.
Porn is harmful for woman and children. Diana Russell Ph.D. wrote alot on these matters and her website is a great resource for learning more.
I went to uni for science, I am not the most articulate. Here is a collection of feminist writings from women who I aspire to. I do not own the copyright to these. I am just providing links to books that are difficult to get hold of. I highly recommend providing monetary support to feminists for thier works. However I also supoprt the initial purpose of the internet, to share information freely. So use common sense, pay feminists for thier contribution to society, and get reading!
