definition of ****
the graphic sexually explicit subordination of women thru pictures or words that also includes women dehumanized as sexual objects, things or comodities; enjoying pain or humiliation or rape; injury, turtor, penetrations, scenaries, shown as inferior, hurt in conditions of sexual arrousal
why is it difficult to discuss ****
the double standard: critics are prude / victims of sexual violence can be retraumatizing
porns effects on the non-participant
increases discrimination against/sexual abuse of women AND it harms those that have *** forced on them. Harms men whose sexual desires are influenced by **. Harms those already victimized by nasty *** as in rape.
objection to **** being ok
**** is a symptom (indication) of a misogynistic culture (hatred of women), not the cause of it.
**** shows a callous
(insensitive) disregard to the actual victims to have depictions of sexual violence
Brison is arguing that:
there is not a moral right to ***. if there isn't a moral right to **, then there is no support for a legal right to ***.
Andrew Altman argues that:
there is a moral right to (even nasty) ****, which is not under free speech, but a moral right to sexual autonomy (freedom, independence)
Liberal sexual morality
whatever harms result from **** are just the price we pay for the right to sexual autonomy
Atman compares **** to sexual orientation
and Atman argues taht we have a right to do some things that are morally wrong.
that even if a causal (cause) connection were established between violence **** and sexual violence it would be insufficient. bcuz it is not as important as the right to sexual autonomy
Atman concedes (admits)
that **** makes it more difficult for women to live as sexual equals to men.
