Sexism, Censorship, and Women’s Issues
In the modern world, we have seen how to sex videos and pornography has been accepted among some groups of people, but it has also been condemned by others. The question on everybody’s mind now is why there are so many women who are willing to watch sex videos and pornography. If these women want to have sexual activities with their partners and be able to enjoy the sexual acts that they see, why do some women hesitate? And why do some women prefer to watch porn movies instead of going to the real place where sex can take place?
The answer is simple: privacy. Pornography and sex videos are not seen as private. Some women’s concern about their privacy prevents them from watching these things in public. Women who watch these things in public are branded as freaks and are sometimes made fun of.
But what about women’s groups? The larger number of women who are open and proud about their sexuality is something that should be encouraged. Some groups actually go out of their way to create private spaces for women to watch pornography and engage in other wholesome activities. There are women’s groups all over the world who are promoting the right of women to watch whatever they want, whenever they want, especially if it doesn’t interfere with their jobs or other family responsibilities. These women’s groups are actively searching for ways to eliminate any forms of discrimination against women who choose to enjoy their sexuality. This includes the dismissal of women’s privacy issues, which are commonly discussed in adult films.
Many women find it hard to watch pornography, especially if it involves hardcore pornography. One reason why this is so is because women view pornography as degrading and objectifying. Another reason is that many women find the idea of watching pornography and engaging in acts that are far from their ideal. For instance, some women feel that watching pornography is no replacement for having a real sex life. They believe that it is merely an opportunity for them to masturbate, rather than participate in sexual activities.
While women’s groups do support the right of women to watch whatever they want, some groups have gone as far as banning women’s magazines from public reading. Some even go so far as to burn their magazines after they are read. This is a violation of media freedom and an attack on women’s right to enjoy media in its true form. Other forms of censorship are being debated in schools and in other areas of society. Is censorship a good thing? On one hand, some say that censorship should be used to control what is viewable on television and to some degree, movies but on the other hand, if society allows pornography, then society also allows sexual assault.
In a similar vein, it would seem that there is no problem with men viewing pornography, but when women do, they are attacked as sex objects. Is all this fair? Sexism is alive and well in our world, and whether we like it or not, it will continue to exist. In order to survive in today’s world, we need to create separate categories of what is acceptable and what is not acceptable. It is time for us to take a stand and say that everyone should feel comfortable watching pornography in the privacy of their own home, and everyone needs to know that if they do, that is their business and they should do what they want to do with their own bodies.
