social pornification

Social pornification is the scare that get propagated by anti‐sex sadvocates (example). What they claim is that todayʼs society has too much sex and that pornography is taking over our society. The tremendous amount of laws which single out pornographic speech to block it from most parts of our lives and the crusades that are waged against porn are all ignored by such people.

In the way this pornification scare can be kinned to the right wing ismalist fear of “rampid homosexuality” and “gays on each street corner”. The truth of the matter is that not only is there no “pornification” nor “rampid homosexuality”, but both of these would benefit todayʼs sexually oppressed culture where showing your underwear in public can get you fined and gay cops are used as the proof that met police is no longer homophobic.

“How do you explain to your children what they have seen on the internet?” — this question is often used as the defence for the tougher censorship laws and more bigotry in our society. Ignoring the linguistic analysis of calling children “your children”, the answer is of course “You cannot”. The children are left all on their own to figure it out, because if somebody would have ½ of a brain and actually sit down and show the child different types of pornography, and attempt to highlight the distinction between commercial and non‐commercial or between sexist and anti‐sexist pornography, that person would get locked up for the childʼs protection for so long that the kid would already be lap‐dancing to pay the university fees before that person gets out.

But of course, the whole “protect the children” attitude is used only to censor sexual literature, it is often boldly suggested that the government should turn the porn setting to “off” for everybody (of course leaving the commercial (more often sexist than its non‐commercial counterpart) porn untouched “on the high selves”).

We should, of course, stop with this “sexualisation of youth” arguments. People are not born as blank sheets of paper onto which Satan writes sexual thoughts. Fetuses (that is what we are before we are born) touch themselves instinctually, and they touch the genetal areas more often than other ones. To clarify it: by the time we are born we are already “sexualised”, we simply discover our sexuality as time goes on on a conscious level. And because our society is so twisted up that the reaction to somebody wearing a T‐Shirt with some phrase that is sexually suggestive is for many to start wearing hijab, the pornography is the only way we can actually discover our sexuality.

Donʼt we all wish that the first time that we have seen the pornography in our life we would have more diversity (showing us that more respectful smut can and does exist)? Donʼt we all see that having the ability to explore sexuality at oneʼs own pace would benefit every individual and the society as the result? Donʼt we all see that we, the humans, are capable of discovering what is right and what is wrong without having the government dictate those norms to us? The answer is that we do see, but we get scared of being bullied by the sadvocate crowd and give in.

But this is where Freedom Porn comes in, the goal here is to break down the barriers that the society has set up for our sexual self‐explression, and to allow us to do what needed to be done long time ago. We are sexual beings and we will not be stopped!
