alt.porn

Gavin McInnes has a disturbing but enlightening piece — The Problem With Hipster Porn. An excerpt:
    The very nature of the business has always kept the innocent away. Until now. Until hipster porn: Also called alt porn, it’s a genre of pornography that is mostly pictures on websites but also includes actual pornographic videos. Hipster porn stars tend to be middle-class punk girls who come from pretty stable backgrounds and have been convinced what they’re doing isn’t porn at all and therefore doesn’t deserve a lot of money. These girls haven’t been molested as kids and are in way over their heads.

So that is what it's called! Until now, I hadn't even known it needed its own name, but now I see how important the distinction is.

It would be a far stretch to say those girls were "abused" by a culture which bombards them with sex all day, but they have been desensitised in a way that didn't use to be possible without outright abuse.

I suppose it depends on how abuse is defined, because it certainly meets what was once the common understanding. An understanding which is now obsolete because those girls wouldn't have been in a position to be desensitized if those that have authority over them had not first abused that authority.

re: ltg,

"Lied to" is probably more accurate. What else do you call what happened to convince them that this was just "fun."

Lying. That's what, and that's all.

Mr. Cornett,

Deception is always involved in any sinful act. I simply find it disappointing that abuse is now narrowly defined when it comes to sins of the flesh because of society's acceptance of those same sins.
