Probably.

But they choose to do it don't they?

Well they choose to do it, but I find that it makes some guys see other women in a disrespectful way.

I feel bad looking at porn simply because of the ol' story that a lot of those girls were molested as children, and that's why they're willing to degrade their bodies.

But I've never heard of midgets being molested, so it doesn't matter to me anymore, as that's the only kind of porn I watch.

I think it degrades them in sort of a way

Like when I see porn, I think why would they do that with themselves, film themselves doing all sorts of stuff and putting it on the internet, it just seems wrong to me, thats why I don't watch porn

But it degrades the women doing it more than women themselves

yes. it objectifies them. furthermore, saying the women choose to does, in a lot/most cases completely miss the point. completely.

Maybe if you did what you're supposed to do when you watch porn, you wouldn't be thinking like that.

i disagree with whoever said "it only degrades the chick in the vid"

i think it degrades other women more. it gives people (particularly young people) the mentality that its alright to treat women as they are treated in porn.

you can argue against that till your blue in the face, but you will never silence the people telling each other to "put one through her!" just because they can.

No I think about it, it does, it justs seems wrong to me how women can be treated like objects more than human beings

Tell that to Jenna Jameson, who is now a very rich woman, merely because she put her assets and talents to good use.

Besides, most of the people I know who watch a lot of porn are nerds. And they tend to treat women better than the average population that I've met.

I know chicks who WANT to be in porn.

It only degrades women if you consider it that way; and of course, that's only an opinion. I'd say there are far worse choices people could make.

That's more to do with the person saying "put one through her!", if you're of the mentality that it's ok to treat women the way you've seen them treated in a porno then you have a problem.

but maybe she does not mind degrading herself because she was brutally raped by four boys, and her boyfriend's uncle...

I can't see it degrading women anymore than than men (people don't seem to care about the man), which is not at all. If people grow up to believe that it's natural practice to walk into a shop, throw a few cheesey jokes then bang someone senseless on the cashier, they have more problems than sexism.

I never thought I'd witness a serious and mature discussion in the pit. I am amazed!

That being said, I'd like to add that I don't find it degrading. See, people can look at porn and still have respect for women. It' s two completely different worlds, the world of porn and the real one. Once you switch off the porn you go back to normal without having turned into a drooling chauvinist monster. If you blame porn to make people lose their respect for women you are just as ignorant as the folks who blame music and video games to be the cause of school shootings.
I refuse to believe that porn changes ones attitude towards womens, and I don't believe that it will have any subconscious influence on people and their feelings towards the female gender.

how on earth can you come to that conclusion? have you ever seen porn? are you aware of any of the wider issues surrounding porn? there is no way it is degrading to men in the way that its degrading to women.

Something similar could happen to me, that doesn't mean I'd go star in hardcore porn. If someone is to react in such a way then they are a blatant minority and need help.
#35
No.

They choose to do it, it's entirely their choice, and if it is degrading, then it degrades guys just as much.

It's just the same as any form of entertainment; it's not real life, and if someone starts acting in real life as if they're in a porno then it's their fault, not porn's.

And maybe you're degrading her further by making that assumption.

Look, a lot of these women could very well be working in fast food at their age, making much less money than they are now. And to be fair, I dunno how many of you are aware of this: The women make far more money in porn than men do. So if anything, it's the men who get the short end of the stick in the situation, unless of course they do gay porn. Gay porn actors are actually straight more often than not, but because they get so much more money for those films, a lot of actors perform in them.

something doesnt have to exert an influence on you to be degrading to women, just as someone giving a racist speech doesnt need to change your views for his speech to be racist.

therefore, the whole argument that you can watch porn and then go away and not be a jerk doesnt stop porn itself being degrading to women.

Indeed, but those are the mentally deranged. And idiots who feel they are superior to women anyway. I was more referring to the "normal" guys.
