So what are you suggesting? That we abolish the sex industry altogether?

Practically speaking? No. Ideally speaking? Yes. It might be possible to eliminate trafficking without putting a stop to the industry, but I think there is something inherently wrong about objectifying human beings.

I don’t think I am objectifying anyone when porn is made for the explicit purpose of my arousal. I fully understand they are people, and if I were to encounter them in person I would simply say hello and be polite.

As for those who made a conscious decision to be pornstars and seem to genuinely enjoy their jobs, do you think they are somehow mentally damaged? Take Angela White for example. She chose the profession and genuinely loves it, or Nina Hartley, who’s been in the business since the 1980s and shows no signs of slowing down.

Completely missing the point.

But often it’s not. Many porn workers are not freely consenting adults, but people who have been forced into the position.

Millions of people around the world are forced into the sex/porn “industry” including thousands in North America (that web page goes over just those who contacted a certain hotline–there are likely many more).

Pornhub is becoming notorious for its exploitation of women:

Yes, there is probably consent involved most of the time, but enough of the time there isn’t that you never really know when you’re watching porn whether it’s consensual or not.

Beyond that, however, it objectifies women by its very nature. People used to consensually sell themselves into slavery, but that didn’t make it OK. I don’t see why it’s OK to objectify other people whether or not they consent. It’s impossible to watch porn and see the actors/performers in their full humanity, as ends in themselves and not just means to one’s personal pleasure. The same goes for prostitution. Not to mention that porn can be addictive, like anything that creates a dopamine rush, and often does create dependencies, as I have seen in several people (and have heard about in many more).

Thanks for the information about this grim truth.

I want to bitch about something, and it concerns the sex industry in general, particularly pornography and prostitution.

I am fed up with the constant shaming of sex workers as if they are lesser human beings. At the end of the day those who do porn are entertainers, and the actors in particular are consenting adults who are doing videos for our personal enjoyment. As for prostitutes, some of us want to unwind and enjoy the pleasures of the flesh and have little to no patience for seduction games.

Most of us are horny, and I think it’s time we accept that part of ourselves and not feel ashamed about it.

In my opinion Anakin must be 22 by ROTS’ end in order for his canonical death age of 45 to work.

Well yeah, that’s not an opinion. But someone changing his age in RotS is probably also okay with changing their canonical death age, especially when they say it makes it more consistent with the OT.

Note I don’t disagree that his age does change if you expand the run-time of the Clone Wars, just providing my thoughts. I guess it also is a bit of my own head canon though that whenever Anakin becomes Vader, no matter what universe, he is always 22, and unless he survives ROTJ he either is in his mid-late forties.

I just watched the Heroes on Both Sides arc again and still consider it to be one of the most engaging and underrated bits of Star Wars. Padme’s humanitarian efforts shine through in a very meaningful way and it’s really good seeing things aren’t clearly defined. We’re all people at the end of the day. I think that’s something we all need reminding of.

Agreed
