How the Porn Industry Harms Women

Something you don’t see often discussed is how the porn industry harms women. In women’s history month, you would think the left could put some effort into this topic. Wishful thinking, I know.

Despite what they say, pornography isn’t empowering. Saying so doesn’t make you “misogynistic” or a “woman-hater” because if anything, the industry hurts women. The porn industry, like human trafficking or abortion, doesn’t empower women. They are all racist and misogynistic. Warning: This article will contain mentions of rape and human trafficking.

Porn has a bad effect on society. It gives us a warped version of what a relationship should be, how men should treat women, and how women view themselves. It has a view that it is okay to harm women and children. Porn also creates a negative view of women. One study showed that, in 304 videos, “88.2% contained physical aggression, principally spanking, gagging, and slapping, while 48.7% of scenes contained verbal aggression, primarily name-calling.” The victims in these videos were women, while the aggressors were mainly male. Porn makes it seem okay to abuse women or commit illegal acts against them.

One specific company I’d like to call out is Pornhub. They profit off of human traffickers, pedophiles, and abusers. A 15-year-old girl in Florida was kidnapped, and her mother found her daughter because a video of her being raped was on Pornhub. They never took it down. In another story, a woman went through hell to get the video of her being raped as a minor taken down. These people continue to deny the allegations that they allow rapists and human traffickers to profit off of their platform, while, in the meantime, lining their own pockets by showing the suffering of their victims. 

Pornhub’s parent company, Mindgeek, equally denies said allegations. Many of these allegations are credible, like how Mindgeek didn’t report to the Canadian government the CSAM (Child Sexual Abuse Material) because “they’re not Canadian.” Mindgeek is a privately owned Canadian company. These companies are getting away with abominable crimes. If these people weren’t guilty, why would they delete millions of videos when the public became outraged? They’re doing so because they know their crimes are catching up with them. They unverified numerous users after credit card companies refused to allow their company to be part of PornHub. It’s all about the money for these slimeballs.

Senator Ben Sasse sums up Pornhub (and the porn industry in general), perfectly: “Any company that profits from rape, trafficking and exploitation must be held accountable. The reporting on Pornhub has been gut-wrenching. Pornhub must not escape scrutiny.” Shut them down. Shut them all down.

The Left doesn’t realize what they call “woke” can actually be more harmful. They claim to be for women’s rights, yet say if you don’t support sex work, you’re a misogynist. That’s a lie. If anything, supporting these industries makes you a misogynist, because all these industries do is hurt women and children. That may seem over-the-top, but it’s the truth! It’s just like how the people who hated Trump for “locking kids in cages” are silent on how Biden caused a catastrophe at the border, and won’t acknowledge it, nor acknowledge how migrant children are suffering. FYI, children don’t willingly cross the border, they’re either trafficked or smuggled, almost always by cartels. 

I do believe there are many who know the harmful effects of pornography. There’re many in Hollywood (surprisingly) who know what I’ve mentioned. Terry Crews being one of them, as he has opened up about what porn does to a person. I’ve linked an article regarding this from Fight The New Drug. They’re a good organization to follow regarding fighting the porn industry. Another one I’d recommend learning about is Trafficking Hub, which is currently fighting to have PornHub shut down. If you’re on social media, also follow Laila Mickelwait (founder of Trafficking Hub), Tim Ballard (founder of Operation Underground Railroad), and Eliza Bleu (trafficking survivor).

In an era of women’s rights and #MeToo, you would think there would be equal consideration into putting pressure on the porn industry to fix their issues. I’m tired of seeing the same old political crap day in and day out. We truly live in an evil and messed up world when we won’t even speak out about the horrors companies like PornHub is doing because it’s the wrong “political move.” The crimes in the porn industry are 100% wrong. That’s not a political opinion, it’s just common sense. Pornhub (and the entire porn industry) does not care about women. They profit off of women’s and even children’s pain.
