Those Wacky Players in the Anti-Porn Movment

These vocal and well-respected researchers, such as Dr. Mary Anne Layden, Dr. James B. Weaver, Dr. Judith Reisman, and Dr. Jeffrey Satinover, to name only a few, are highly active, highly visible, and Reisman and Satinover are involved not only in the anti-pornography but also the anti-homosexuality movement. All of these researchers’ anti-pornography testimonies before a Senate subcommittee last November can be found here.

Reismann is one of the biggest activists against “The Kinsey Report” and the upcoming movie starring Liam Neeson and Laura Linney, and authored the work "Kinsey, Sex and Fraud." She is also a vocal anti-homosexual. Reisman had also been a prosecution witness for the state of Ohio when it attempted to remove photos by Robert Mapplethorpe from Cincinnati’s Contemporary Arts Center.

Santinover is a well respected anti-homosexual leader, authoring the work “Homosexuality & The Politics of Truth” and is involved with the organization P.A.T.H., Positive Alternative to Homosexuality.

Layden is the Co-Director of the Sexual Trauma and Psychopathology Program, Center for Cognitive Therapy at the University of Pennsylvania and The Social Action Committee for Women's Psychological Health, and has been an activist against the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. Pumpster recently lampooned her Senate testimony.. We have little additional information about her agenda, but we think her various authored papers, and the testimony she gave before the Senate committee, reveals her bias, ignorance, and quality of her cognitive resources.

The closest things to a mainstream voice in our industry is Hustler magazine, Larry Flynt.com, and Feminists for Porn’s Nina Hartley. You can find a recent piece authored by her here. Definitely visit Mr. Flynt's site if you haven't already. Pornography users and producers do not have a truly mainstream voice in television or on radio, nor do they get to champion their views in front of the U.S. legislature. There is no political action committee for our industry, no NPO, no Porn Producers Council or Union. We have a few organizations that defend us, first amendment proponents, such as Feminists for Free Expression (FFE), American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), National Coalition Against Censorship (NCAC), and the Libertarian Party. But against us? American Family Association (AFA), National Law Center for Children and Families (NLC), Family Research Council (FRC), SpiderWomen, National Coalition for the Protection of Children and Families (NCPCF), Enough is Enough, Concerned Women for America (CWA), Morality in Media (MIM), American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) to name only a few.

Most of these groups use family values and children much like environmentalists had used the spotted owl to halt logging in the Northwest during the 90's. Just as the environmentalists could not demand a stop to logging because, in their opinion, it is detrimental, these faith-based anti-porn organizations cannot claim pornography is harmful simply because it goes against their chosen religious doctrine. Instead, they use the protection of children as the main argument in their anti-porn defense. We all know children have no place in or around pornography, but they hold pornographers accountable instead of playing a more pro-active, and protective, role in these children's lives. And why is this? In reality, the children are simply pawns in their game to crush not only freedom of sexuality but also women's rights.

The anti-porn battle began with early patriarchal leaders outlawing goddess worship and pagan rituals that revered the nude female form--symbolized in the vagina, breasts, and swollen womb--to promote male-centered rule and divinity. These leaders manipulated Christianity in order to designate themselves as divinely chosen emperors or church leaders in order to legitimize their elite power and the enormous wealth they extracted from subjects rendered ineffectual by scheming legislation.

This is the real issue. The ubiquity of pornography today, with the advent of the Internet, threatens to normalize sexuality, set the nude female form in a position of reverence, and lead us away from not the teachings of Christ, but the political institution of Christianity--the fear-based apparatus designed to control the populace and assure the power and wealth of an elite male oligarchy who have existed unmolested for millennia and who are responsible for moving our planet toward the brink of ruin.
