It is a well-known fact that porn is a gateway for oppressive behavior, used to exploit women for the profit of others - women who are incapable of finding any other solution for gathering an income merely to survive. But, that is not the topic for this post. The topic for this post concerns male fantasies, young girls, and the potential for rape.
“Legal” pornography which involves women who are “of age”, or 18, is one of the most popular forms of pornography in regards to consumption. The attraction for men in this particular type of pornography is the youth of the girl, and to appease this attraction, the girl(s) in these movies and videos are forced to attempt to make themselves seem naively innocent, child-like, both externally and internally, in order to convey a sense of submissiveness to the male viewer.
It is my contention, because of this, that all men who desire this type of pornography are pedophiles and, inevitably, potentially dangerous rapists. They are drawn to the girl’s youth, and the fantasy that the girl is underage. It adds a sense of risk and taboo to the thrill. And, what is often cited, beyond sex, as the cause for rape? The desire for dominance and power. The difference between a girl at the age of 15 and a girl at the age of 18 is very minute, and men are capable of recognizing that.
I encourage any girl out there who is still dating a man to stop him from watching pornography, or, at the very least, if that is too daunting, find out what type of pornography he is often viewing. If it concerns young females and that sort of fantasy, I would suggest getting away from him as quickly as possible. Not only is he extremely depraved, sick and disgusting, but he is likely a pedophile, or has pedophilic desires, and he likely has a great potential for raping in the near future.

Good luck with that. You may as well try to stop him from breathing.

Some of this makes sense. The kind of porn a guy prefers will tell you a lot about his personality. If he prefers "nymphets," he'll most likely have trouble accepting a grown woman as his equal, even if he doesn't act out on his pedo fantasies.

I watched a show with women talking about their breasts on TVO one night. It was a fairly in depth documentary about what women think of their breasts, breast problems, development stage, what they wanted as little girls, body image, etc and what they thought men thought about breasts.
The last topic had several women with small breasts thinking men like those because they liked pubescent girls and women with big breasts proclaiming men like those because of a mother fixation.
Never mind that mothers don't even remotely all have big ones and about 20% of women have small or no breasts. This "what men like" is varied and subjective on many levels. it's sad when people see a small segment of a media or a small trait in mankind and blow it up to a mainstream ill.
I like small breasts myself but married a girl with c-cups because it's never just about tits or appearance.
I've created about 30 female comic characters, most of them well-endowed but a few small breasted, it's funny how women seem to comment on them more then the sex-bomb types.

A fetish is a fetish and doesn't mean a person would want to take it any further. It's a fantasy. Even if someone has a "depraved" fetish it wouldn't mean they would ever commit rape. I'm also pretty sure that if a guy is looking at 18+ porn he's not a pedophile.
Not that pornography doesn't exploit women or have its issues, but this isn't it. Calling someone sick and depraved and disgusting for looking at porn or having a fetish is just trying to shame them. Everyone, or most everyone, has a fetish or two. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean you get to dictate it's wrong.

Pretty sure the vast majority of men enjoy pornography (and more women than you'd like to know, as well). Why aren't there more sex abuse cases?

What if you like watching porn with milfs and older women?

Man Called True
I've looked at and watched porn since I was a teenager.
The very thought of being a rapist horrifies me. And also, I consider a woman's smile her most attractive feature (if that means anything).
Somehow, I think the idea of feminist porn studios (there are several out there) would make Femitheist's head explode.

So, if a girl is dating a man and finds out the only porn he watches involves no women at all, that's fine?
Good to know. *Write on clipboard*

I once tried to make myself seem naively innocent and child-like. It didn't seem to have any effect.
7/17/2012 2:30:36 PM
LOL, someone is pushing 40 and lost her man to a younger women! lol, freak
7/17/2012 2:38:11 PM
I wonder what she has to say about MILF porn? Probably some horse crap about it is the desire of younger men to subjugate women who have achieved prosperity and blah, blah, blah. Or lesbian porn? Oh, that one must blow her little mind.
7/17/2012 2:44:00 PM
I know girls who watch more porn than I do.
7/17/2012 3:47:33 PM
Um, NO, NO and NO!!
7/17/2012 7:32:41 PM
I'm not surprised.
The loudest comments I'v recieved were when I drew hair in armpits or boxes of tampoons near toilets. Small details that for some reason didn't bother the male commentators the least =)

Like most people, this Femitheist fails to understand the psychology behind pornography as well as the psychology behind the various different sub-genres and fantasies.
I feel like writing a long post about what the teenager / schoolgirl / cheerleader fantasy is about, but the fact that it will completely fly over this persons head holds me back.

I tried actually reading some of her other posts, as her previous 'castrate-all-men Day' was so insane, but I'm now convinced this woman is seriously mentally ill. Her most recent post says that she's not coming back because of problems with the police, which does not suprise me...

Lesbian porn, even made by women, exists. So does straight porn in which the woman is dominant. Furthermore, not all M/F porn is oppressive, misogynist, or exploitative. Most adult-film actors today get into it of their own free will, and many are self-employed. That doesn't even take into account the literal mountains of amateur stuff out there, put out by couples (or groups) of their own volition.
Everything else here is the typical misandrist tripe we've been seeing lately.

Pedophiles have a sexual attraction to prepubescent children, not adolescents. The word you are looking for is ephebophile.
As for rape, there are no excuses for it but the vast majority of men who occasionally resort to porn are not rapists.

Newsflash, lady...it's not just guys who like watching porn!

What do you think of real lesbian porn (i.e. porn made by and primarily intended for lesbians)? Do you even know it exists?
The mainstream porn industry is absolutely vile, but that doesn't mean porn itself is bad. This is why porn I look at is made by guys in their own bedrooms and small-time operations like Pinups magazine. It's also way hotter because they're legitimately enjoying themselves and getting off rather than doing a bad job of pretending to, and they have flaws and look like real people. I find their exhibitionist streaks hot too.

@Rabbit of Caerbannog
The Meese Commission shot down the theory in the 80's after his hand-picked theologians and conservatives actually studied the data and declared there was no "gateway" degeneration of morals in porn enthusiasts and that non-violent porn actually prevented frustrations from building to eruptions of bad behavior.
Edwin literally hand-waved the conclusions of his own commission aside and said what he wanted them to have said. And the bastard got caught.

As stupid as this is, it is by far the least insane thing on that site.
7/21/2012 8:38:03 AM
Why don't you just stop beating around the bush and admit that you just hate men?

"I encourage any girl out there who is still dating a man to stop him from watching pornography..."
And then watch as every guy dumps his girlfriend.
