Of Feminism & Inequality In Porn & Sex Work

Of Feminism & Inequality In Porn & Sex Work | Herstory | Scoop.it

The Feminist Times has an excellent series on sex work, covering a diverse range of issues. (Sadly, it is only found by searching for the hashtag #SexIndustryWeek, as if finding it on Twitter was more important than a person being able to find all the discussion on the site.) Because it is a diverse series, there are plenty of articles I do not agree with; but that’s what makes it a good discussion, so, please, do take the time to read them. However, there’s one article in particular that raised my hackles and prompts me to write today ~ primarily because it has gone without comment. Such absence of comment might make people think it is “right”. And it is not.

The article is #SexIndustryWeek: Dworkin Was Right About Porn, by VJD Smith of Glosswatch. In it, Smith uses the words of Andrea Dworkin to align all porn as patriarchal misogyny abusing and raping female victims:

How Iron Man 3 Flipped the Script on Female Characters | Underwire | WIRED

How Iron Man 3 Flipped the Script on Female Characters | Underwire | WIRED | Herstory | Scoop.it
Want to see one of the most progressive portrayals of women in a blockbuster movie this year? Then go see Iron Man 3. As incongruous as it sounds, it’s true: director Shane Black and his co-writer, Drew Pearce, managed to turn female characters into the stealth stars of a superhero film about an arrogant billionaire (former) playboy by flipping the script on stereotypes about female characters and making them interesting, mature people who actually do things.
Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

However, read this quote from the article as well:


"Ultimately, what Iron Man 3 does isn’t revolutionary; or at least, it shouldn’t be. The truly surprising thing should be how surprising it feels to have two smart women (more than one!) talking to each other in a movie about something other than a man. It’s something that women experience every single day of their lives, and its comparative rarity in our entertainment should make us feel a constant sense of incongruity–like something is missing."

Phyllis Schlafly: Still Wrong (and Mean) After All These Years | Herstory | Scoop.it
A recent column by Phyllis Schlafly—arguably nation’s, if not the world’s, most famous hater of the feminist movement—shows just how woefully out of touch she and the conservative spokeswomen who have followed her are today.

Schlafly said, “The best way to improve economic prospects for women is to improve job prospects for the men in their lives, even if that means increasing the so-called pay gap.”

Barkers and Beagles, 1930s

Barkers and Beagles, 1930s | Herstory | Scoop.it

When the TV show DuckTales debuted in September 1987, twenty-six years ago this month, it brought with it the infamous Beagle Boys and their matriarch, Ma Beagle. These were the main antagonists of Uncle Scrooge McDuck and his wards, Huey, Dewey, and Louie. The whole world that DuckTales existed within was born from the pen of Carl Barks, the writer of Walt Disney’s Comics and Stories, with the debut of the pen-and-ink Beagle Boys hailing all the way from 1951.


In the book Carl Barks and the Disney Comic Book a quote from Carl says the original Beagle Boys were based on “Capone’s gang and the different bunch of hoodlums around the country,” the kind of criminals that Banks would have read about in the news while growing up. Throughout the 1920s and 1930s, the combined impacts of Prohibition and the Great Depression brought out the worst in society, birthing the likes of Bonnie and Clyde, John Dillinger and his gang, and the Ma Baker Gang.
