Grr, Fuck, Buggerit, twitchy twitchy porn/jensen post.

Arrgh, ugh, Veravenom leaves someplace or other I'd missed and puts me in the awkward position of having to decide whether to persue this individual incident when a radical feminists puts forth the "porn = rape, causation = correlation" meme, knowing that she can't possibly respond, which I class as dirty pool to a large degree, or wait for the next bus to come along in a minute or two (because it's a ridiculously common meme, one that I've used before I have to say).

Nah, I think I'll wait, however let me say this:

Robert Jensen spends most of his time wacking off to porn. He claims he's doing this for feminism.

All his supporters however, are convinced that watching (and wacking off to) porn is an act of the patriarchy, one which a true male feminist supporter would never do.

Let me reiterate:
Robert Jensen spends most of his time wacking off to porn. He claims he's doing this for feminism.

I do hope I don't need to resort to a diagram here for people to get the point.

Look, argue on the merits of the thing right, the common use of rape victims as blunt instruments with which to beat opponents into an ad hom silence is bad enough, but could we please, for the sake of Our Lady Cthulhu, note that Robert Jensen either proves the usual radfem position that porn is nasty and horrible and is hate speech and turns men into rapists, or Robert Jensen proves the other viewpoint that Porn is, in certain instances, a benign byproduct of social patriarchy, with a correlative rather than a causative relationship to the rape culture, and that Sturgeons Law abounds in porn as it does with most things and is the cause of it's general problematicness.

However, the problem with Jensen is that he unfortunately declares that jacking off constantly to horribly patriarchal porn is wrong, and then spends his days and nights jacking off furiously to horribly patriarchal porn.

So the objective facts we know for sure about Jensen are 1) he's a hypocrite and 2) He makes the anti-porn side look like idiots every time he's talked of in a favorable way.

Please oh please oh please oh please stop referring to him as though he was a normal human being to prove the point that only the skeeviest of men would jack off to porn, and that watching excessive amounts of porn will then lead to men becoming rapists, because 1) he's a serious user and 2) he's using feminists (and making us look silly) in a cheap attempt to gain popularity and credibility that he doesn't deserve for being a mere Lecturer of Beard and Cock Stroking Studies.

Feminism deserves better.

and look, even after watching all that horrible, violent porn, he's not (best as we know) a violent rapist...

hum.

I hate, hate, hate Robert Jensen.

I'm slightly afraid that his thesis is in some way correct - I jsut keep getting this mental image of him eventually being caught squatting over a baby or somehting.

Gonzales or ratzinger may be able to get away with advocating child abuse and downplaying pedophilia, but you can bet on the way it'll be splashed across the news from here to timbuktu if a noted feminist academic is caught shitting on infants.

I know you said Yolanda wins April, but I think actually *you* win April. Or maybe it can be a tie.

Yes but I want to spray paint Yolanda's post all over walls and carve into a peice of 2-by-4 with which one could attempt to slap some sense in to some of hte choicer idiots in the world - and also she has a name that reminds me to buy the newest Foreigner book, and make me a barely suppressed bundle of unrestrained squeeing and brain drooling.
