…and sounds of smashing headlights…
Yeah, Polanski is an ass. The people who signed that petition I sure as hell wonder about. But what all the fuck does Sasha Grey have to do with any of it?
And hells yes I want to comment over there, but I am not gonna “jack the thread” or whatever else. But ffs come on. Grey has been pretty dang straight forward about the hows and whys of her porn career, the fact that why yes, she did aggressively choose that career, so on, so forth. There is one person exploiting Grey, and it is Grey. And okay, so what, Grey was cast in a mainstream movie. And? What, because she is tainted by porn she should not be allowed in more mainstream movies? Hummm. I mean, is that what you’re saying ND? Hell if I know, but it is what it sounds like.
Of all the people to try and paint as a poor exploited young woman who just does not know any better and cannot make decisions for herself yadda “>yadda yadda yadda, Grey is not a good choice. And further more, she has been pretty dang adamant about how much she hates it when people try to do so. Hummm….I sense a running theme there with a lot of women in the sex industry- you know that whole don’t say who, what, and how I am for me, thanks, I can do it myself thing- but you know, I am not surprised to see it happening anyway, regardless of how much Grey (or anyone else) might hate it. Fire whatever bullet at whatever target works, I guess.
I have come to a conclusion. Actually, I arrived at it a long freakin’ time ago. A lot of people are downright threatened by and abhor the mere idea that women in the sex industry might actually have brains, the ability to make their own decisions, have some affection and or vision for what it is they are doing, and oh shit, might actually be good at or have a talent for a whole lot of things other than…being poor exploited women who can be used as an illustration of/for whatever at any given moment by people who probably do not give a crap about them- or let alone listen to them.
Jesus Christ. I really do want to know how many of the anti porn types over there have ever really listened to Grey, you know, actually listened to her, and what she has to say about her decisions to be in porn. Oh wait, she can’t possibly make decisions now, can she? She like all those poor creatures is apparently too fucking stupid to do so, or at least to be believed.
A yep, that is what I really feel like it comes down to some days. Anti porn people thinking all women in porn are fucking morons…and thus, can be used at will for whatever agenda, because they are too dumb to notice.
Rage. No real words for it…just rage.
