This was a response to the comments on the cross post of And now… we turn Five!!! on Anarchist News

Wow. It was quite interesting reading all the comments here. Sometimes i wonder if anarchist movement has anybody else besides people who do absolutely nothing, but criticise every project that they encounter for being not radical or even worse that it promotes rape, slavery, and whatever else they can think of at the moment of writing. And it's no secret why, after all it takes a lot of energy and dedication to pull a radical project, no matter the errors you are going to make and no matter the personal cost, but to bash another without even having looked at what one has been doing takes no energy and has no repercussions (you can just say it wasn't you if you later meet in person).

However, some responses do need to be addressed, so here it goes.

To those who say "Anarchist porn should rather be ...": Please start your own project, there are other ways of doing things which are equally as valid, when you do i'd be more than happy to even advertise your "start-up" on our front page, we already do that as you can see. If you need technical help, we do share all the technology that we've developed (see the main post, the link is there).

To individuals saying that anarchist politics is not compatible with porn: What do you think makes porn pornographic? It is simply a depiction of whatever somebody finds sexual, it's no different than any other form of expression... well the only difference is that in our today's culture it's a taboo topic. We are told constantly that pornography is the domain of porn industry, and that we must not "bring it to the masses". Well, we disagree and we allow everybody their self-expression. What anarchist has ever been pro-censorship? Why is sex seen as something different than any other activity? You've made the positive claim, it's your job to prove that it is true.

To some people who said that you couldn't find porn: I don't know how you managed, you go to the front page and there's a whole section titled "browse our porn stash". But since we are not any other porn project, we also have political and social articles and announcements.
