I think it’s fucked up how empowerment had women completely tricked into thinking they’re truly the bo$$es in the world so now whenever we say we critize an industry like porn, we are mistaken for the ones who believe women are too dumb to think or some shit, while we actually just try to be honest and say “we don’t all have the same power out there so obviously there is coercion happening especially under capitalism” without ever implying that women are “responsible”. But now, we are apparently offending every liberal women who “choose”, just by adding these exact quotes that would apparently suggest every single women is not the boss of her own life. I know, it’s not fun to be the victim of an abusive system, and it’s easier to seek empowerment from shit that happens to you (see also : “it happens for a good reason”, “there is as much positive in negative stuff” which are patriarcal values really). But I also know that you need to /excuse your privilege/ as well friend when it comes to critical thinking ! Don’t be fooled, women -and only them remember that at all times, have been there to liberate women from patriarchy, and when it started to affect women positively, men and their corporations took it by saying that fashion, makeup, porn, body image, and such are actually empowering if *you* decide it is.
You do what you got to do in this society to live as good as you can, but it should never stop you from being critical about any of your actions.
