I definitely support the idea of saving "I Am Not Okay With This", cause is a great and really interesting serie with well developed characters who struggle with real issues.
But I don't see the need to throw sh*t to another serie to save it. "Riverdale" is a good serie that also represent the LGBT+ community and real troubles.

"Pornography is the instruction, rape the practice. Pornography shows the sad truth about men and evil lies about women."
-Anita Kanitz

"Show me an abuse of women in society, I'll show it to you made sex in the pornography. If you want to know who is being hurt in this society, go see what is being done and to whom in pornography and then go look for them other places in the world. You will find them being hurt in just that way."
-Catharine MacKinnon

"Pornography is used in rape - to plan it, to execute it, to choreograph it, to engender the excitement to commit the act." [Andrea testimony before the New York Attorney General's Commission on Pornography in 1986]
-Andrea Dworkin

" If pornography is part of your sexuality, then you have no right to your sexuality."
-Catharine MacKinnon

" Men, permitted to put words (and other things) in women's mouths, create scenes in which women desperately want to be bound, battered, tortured, humiliated, and killed."
-Catharine MacKinnon

"Pornography is now beyond anyone’s control. It’s a classic example of ever-controversial unregulated capitalism — the market automatically responding to individual needs and desires. I continue to support and defend pornography, which I believe exposes the deepest, darkest truths about sexuality.2
-Camille Paglia

“It is not a single crime when a child is photographed while sexually assaulted (raped.) It is a life time crime that should have life time punishments attached to it. If the surviving child is, more often than not, going to suffer for life for the crime(s) committed against them, shouldn't the pedophiles suffer just as long? If it often takes decades for survivors to come to terms with exactly how much damage was caused to them, why are there time limits for prosecution?”
― Sierra D. Waters, Debbie

“The rape of a child is a violent act of contempt, not an expression of sexuality or affection.”
― Mike Lew, Gay Men and Childhood Sexual Trauma

"We are very close to death. All women are. And we are very close to rape and we are very close to beating. And we are inside a system of humiliation from which there is no escape for us. We use statistics not to try to quantify the injuries, but to convince the world that those injuries even exist. Those statistics are not abstractions. It is easy to say, Ah, the statistics, somebody writes them up one way and somebody writes them up another way. That’s true. But I hear about the rapes one by one by one by one by one, which is also how they happen. Those statistics are not abstract to me. Every three minutes a woman is being raped. Every eighteen seconds a woman is being beaten. There is nothing abstract about it. It is happening right now as I am speaking."
-Andrea Dworkin

" Women are socially disadvantaged in controlling sexual access to their bodies through socialization to customs that define a woman's body as for sexual use by men. Sexual access is regularly forced or pressured or routinized beyond denial."
-Catharine MacKinnon

"All sex, even consensual sex between a married couple, is an act of violence perpetrated against a woman."
-Catharine MacKinnon

What causes misogynistic thinking? New study finds link with early exposure to pornography !
Have you encountered a man with a sexist attitude? His introduction to pornography could be the stem, according to a new study.
Researchers from the University of Nebraska, U.S., conducted an experiment to determine how exposure to porn for the first time could shape a man’s views on masculinity and sexuality.

To do so, they handed out a 46-question survey to 330 undergraduate men ages 17 to 54. It was designed to measure masculine norms, and it included questions about the first time males saw pornography and whether or not it was an accident.

On average, respondents said they were about 13 years old when they were first exposed to pornography. More than 43 percent said it was by accident, 33 percent said they sought it out and 17 percent said they were forced. About 6 percent declined to answer.

After analyzing the data, scientists found that men who were exposed to porn for the first time at a younger age mostly agreed with statements that asserted male superiority.

However, those who were older when they were first exposed to pornography and had a “greater endorsement of Playboy masculine norms,” such as having multiple sexual partners.

“We expected that the younger the boys were when first exposed to pornography, the more likely they were to adopt playboy norms as well as norms of masculine power over women,” researcher Alyssa Bischmann said in a statement. “We don’t have a lot of theories that would explain this unexpected inverse relationship between pornography use and playboy norms.”However, the scientists did note that their experiment didn’t identify other factors, such as negative sexual experiences, performance anxiety, religiosity and frequency of use, which could be related to the surprising results.

Therefore, more research is needed.

“Future research,” the study said, “should also investigate outcomes of these relations by including measures of relationship satisfaction, wellbeing, and perpetration of violence against women, as these variables may be related to masculine norms and pornography.”

Pornography is the instruction to rape, sexual torture and murder and sexual femicide! There is not only fantasy in porns, there is the real humilation, rape, torture, mutilation and sometimes murder of women, girls and childs. That are heinous sex crimes, nothing more and nothing less.

A horrible case:
May 30, 2018, Gardena,U.S.:
Gardena man found guilty of murder in bondage-sex death of Torrance woman, raping 3 other women !An Inglewood Superior Court jury has found a Gardena man guilty of all 25 felony counts he faced – including for first-degree murder of one woman and raping three others in videotaped, bondage-style encounters in South Bay motel rooms and in his one-time Riverside County bedroom.

Kevon Takashi Ross, a 33-year-old UC Riverside graduate, now faces up to 286 years in prison.The panel didn’t need much time, deliberating for three hours on Friday. The verdict was read on Wednesday because of the Memorial Day holiday and to give lawyers and others plenty of notice to return to the courtroom.When the first verdict was read, for murder, Ross sunk his head in his right hand and kept it there for much of the time it took to read the other 24 counts.

Jurors were to decide whether Ross took advantage of his sexual partners, as argued by the prosecutor, or if the death was the result of a bondage sex-act gone wrong, as portrayed by Ross’ defense attorney, and he had consent.Kellie Marie Nolan, 27, of Torrance was found unresponsive in a Gardena motel room after 5 a.m. on Dec. 12, 2015, after a sexual encounter in which Ross wrapped her in cellophane and duct tape from her abdomen to her hair.

Right after the verdict, her family declined to comment at this time.

“We’re happy we could deliver justice for Kellie and the other victims,” Deputy District Attorney Frank Dunnick said.

“ There’s no winning in a case like this, because nothing can bring Kellie back, but we can take solace knowing there will never be another victim at the hands of the defendant,” he said.During the investigation, detectives spoke to three other women – Ross met two while attending UC Riverside – who said they hadn’t known how far Ross took their sexual encounters until they were shown videos he had recorded.

On Friday, Dunnick told jurors that Ross introduced the women to bondage, combined sex with alcohol, then when his partners were inebriated took their encounters to “another level.” Jurors watched graphic videos.

George Steele, Ross’ attorney, told jurors that the women all consented to the sexual acts.

“Everyone agreed, everyone was on the same page until a night – when he didn’t think he did anything wrong – went horribly wrong,” Steele told the panel.

Ross testified that with each of the four women the couple planned and agreed upon the details, and that they had safe words so the women could end the acts if uncomfortable.

The night Nolan died, Ross testified, he made sure she was breathing but was surprised to see a bit of liquid come out of the tape by her nose. When he pulled the tape off, she was vomiting.

Ross turned off the recording. He testified that he tried CPR. Explaining the 10-minute gap before calling authorities, Ross said he had trouble finding his cell phone and, when asked why he didn’t just use the motel phone, he said he didn’t notice it.

Pornography: Men Possessing Women/Andrea Dworkin (Autor)
This volume presents a study of the damaging effect of pornography and its ramifications on society.
The male sex lies leads to rape culture, sexual violence, sexual misogyny and in many countries to sex slavery and child marriages connectec with FGM. What a shame for mankind!

Letters from a War Zone /Andrea Dworkin (Autor)
The nonconformist and social commentator discusses her experiences as a woman and a battered wife, her life of demonstrating, organizing, and addressing other women and the government, and the current state of the women's movement.
You know someone is a danger to the status quo when they're vilified in the midst of whatever human rights campaign they are part of--it happened to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., it happened to Malcolm X, it happened to Nelson Mandela, it happened to Gloria Steinem, and now Andrea Dworkin shares a place on the list of luminaries. _Letters From A War Zone_ details the very sad and very real struggles of one-half of the human population to be treated as equals by the other half. Fiercely intelligent and never mincing her words, Dworkin challenges the hurtful and dehumanizing norms in our society which keep individuals of both genders, but particularly females, from living peacefully and to their fullest potential. The overall tone is angry and yet, when measuring her words, rightfully so--within the themes and contexts of rape and abuse in a world which is nightmarish at best for many, it becomes painfully clear to the reader that the real outrage is to NOT be outraged. Dworkin presents the realities of a world drowning in patriarchal values, and it isn't pretty--yet she also conveys her courage and her hope to make it better, citing her efforts to increase understanding of these issues through lectures and publishing, and even with a mention towards the end of her male lover which gives the lie to the antiquated (and always amusing) notion that all feminists are automatically man-haters for voicing any comment that doesn't put the opposite gender on a throne--the similarity to Malcolm X's relating of his experiences with white people sympathetic to the black people's struggle for equal rights (at Mecca) is both striking and beautiful. Apologists, fence-sitters, insecure male individuals who need their egos stroked and those of both genders who have a vested interest in keeping womyn--or indeed, any persecuted group--abused and "in their place" will of course hate this book. Those with open minds and an interest in feminism or indeed human rights of any kind will find this work to be both a thoughtful and passionate challenge to social injustice.

Pornland: How Porn Has Hijacked Our Sexuality/Gail Dines (Autor)
Astonishingly, the average age of first viewing porn is now 11.5 years for boys, and with the advent of the Internet, it’s no surprise that young people are consuming more porn than ever. And, as Gail Dines shows, today’s porn is strikingly different from yesterday’s Playboy. As porn culture has become absorbed into pop culture, a new wave of entrepreneurs are creating porn that is even more hard-core, violent, sexist, and racist. Proving that porn desensitizes and actually limits our sexual freedom, Dines argues its omnipresence is a public health concern we can no longer ignore.

Paid for: My Journey Through Prostitution/Rachel Moran (Autor)
The best work by anyone on prostitution ever, Rachel Moran’s Paid For fuses the memoirist’s lived poignancy with the philosopher’s conceptual sophistication. The result is riveting, compelling, incontestable. Impossible to put down. This book provides all anyone needs to know about the reality of prostitution in moving, insightful prose that engages and disposes of every argument ever raised in its favor.” —Catharine A. MacKinnon, law professor, University of Michigan and Harvard UniversityBorn into a troubled family, Rachel Moran left home at the age of fourteen. Being homeless, she was driven into prostitution to survive. With intelligence and empathy, she describes the exploitation she and others endured on the streets and in the brothels. Moran also speaks to the psychological damage inherent to prostitution and the inevitable estrangement from one’s body. At twenty-two, Moran escaped the sex trade. She has since become a writer and an abolitionist activist.

Violence against Women in Pornography/ Walter DeKeseredy (Autor)
Violence against Women in Pornography illuminates the ways in which adult pornography hurts many women, both on and off screen. A growing body of social scientific knowledge shows that it is strongly associated with various types of violence against women in intimate relationships. Many women who try to leave abusive and/or patriarchal men also report that pornography plays a role in the abuse inflicted on them by their ex-partners. On top of these harms, male pornography consumption is strongly correlated with attitudes supporting violence against women. Many researchers, practitioners, and policy makers believe that adult pornography is a major problem and offer substantial evidence supporting this claim.

Violence against Women in Pornography,

unlike books written mainly for scholarly and general audiences, specifically targets students enrolled in undergraduate criminology, deviance, women’s studies, masculinities studies, human sexuality, and media studies courses. Thoughtful discussion questions are placed at the end of each chapter, and appropriate PowerPoint slides and suggestions for classroom exercises will be available to aid student understanding. The main objective of this book is to motivate readers to think critically about adult pornography and to take progressive steps individually and collectively to curb the production and consumption of hurtful sexual media, including that from the "dark side of the Internet."

The Bracelet: The Story to End Child Sex Slavery in the World/ Charles A. Bonner (Autor)
The story that will end child sex slavery in the world! The lines between fiction and nonfiction are blurring and giving rise to a new form that might best be called "true fiction".

Brought to light are the established mafias that dominate the trade. The big players in Europe today are Russians, Albanians, and Ukrainians (and recently, in Italy, Nigerians). In southeastern Europe, Turkish, Kurdish, Serbian, Greek, Bulgarian, Hungarian, and Romanian networks move Eastern European women into Western Europe and the Middle East. Many of these groups simply added human trafficking to existing crime portfolios, often running women alongside traditional contraband, like drugs and arms.

Even those in the group at highest risk-poor young women-tend to see trafficking as something that may happen to someone else, but not to them. In surveys, most victims say that they don't know anyone who's been trafficked. That may be partly because women often conceal this experience, even from their own families. Add desperate poverty and an unhappy household-the standard "push factors"-and the pipeline of likely trafficking victims never runs dry.

By gracefully weaving in interviews with madams and other sexual gatekeepers - and sometimes even the pimps or johns themselves -Bonner constructs an insightful, resonant, and nuanced narrative that details just how complex and massive this problem.

Why do we treat children as victims in cases of sexual abuse, but as soon as money is exchanged, we deem these sexually abused children as "criminals?" Why is there such an overwhelming demand for sex with a child? Are we adequately teaching our children sexual respect? Why are men obsessed with power, property, and the world domination of women? The problem is monumental.

The Hite Report: A Nationwide Study of Female Sexuality /Shere Hite (Autor)
The Hite Report, first published in 1976, was a sexual revolution in six hundred pages. To answer sensitive questions dealing with the most intimate details of women's sexuality, Hite's innovation was simple: she asked women, a lot of them, everything--and published the results.
One hundred thousand women, ages fourteen to seventy-eight, were asked what they do and don't like about sex; how orgasm really feels, with and without intercourse; how it feels not to have an orgasm during sex; the importance of clitoral stimulation and masturbation; and to name the greatest pleasures and frustrations of their sexual lives, among many other questions.
The Hite Report declares that orgasm is easy and strong for women, given the right stimulation; that most women have orgasm most easily during masturbation or clitoral stimulation by hand; that sex as we define it is a cultural institution, not a biological one; and that attitudes must change to include the stimulation women desire.

Rape The Silencer: Good Girls Don't Tell Until Now/Valessa Winslow (Autor)
Winslow's book covers serious subjects that expose domestic and marital violence, mental cruelty and illness, childhood innocence, sexual abuse, predators, adolescent abuse, spiritual awareness, development, and leadership.

The Myth of the Vaginal Orgasm/Anne Koerdt
Whenever female orgasm and frigidity are discussed, a false distinction is made between the vaginal and the clitoral orgasm. Frigidity has generally been defined by men as the failure of women to have vaginal orgasms. Actually the vagina is not a highly sensitive area and is not constructed to achieve orgasm. It is the clitoris which is the center of sexual sensitivity and which is the female equivalent of the penis.

Aside from physical stimulation, which is the common cause of orgasm for most people, there is also stimulation through primarily mental processes. Some women, for example, may achieve orgasm through sexual fantasies, or through fetishes. However, while the stimulation may be psychological, the orgasm manifests itself physically. Thus, while the cause is psychological, the effect is still physical, and the orgasm necessarily takes place in the sexual organ equipped for sexual climax, the clitoris. The orgasm experience may also differ in degree of intensity – some more localized, and some more diffuse and sensitive. But they are all clitoral orgasms.

The male lies and legends of always horny women, girls and even female childs leads to the sexual enslavement of all females since mankind exists, to forced prostitution and sex slavery, to forced polygamy, child and underaged marriages, to forced child prostitution and marital rape, to forced FGM and sadistic misogynist pornography. It leads to many and deadly hate crimes against all females worldwide.
We must stop that forever! Stop the violence against females! Stop the evil defamation of all females! We are more worth than all that dirthy male words about us!

Female Mutilation / Hilary Burrage (Autor)
The numbers of girls and women affected around the world are staggering. Death is not an uncommon outcome. Female genital mutilation (FGM) is the partial or complete removal of the external female genitals for cultural rather than medical or religious reasons—its origin is unknown. Practitioners believe the procedure enhances the girl’s health, hygiene, chastity, fertility and marriage prospects—the truth is it obliterates sexual pleasure, causes severe health problems and is sometimes fatal. This book covers this controversial cultural practice that is taking place around the world including in Western countries where it is illegal. Read the harrowing stories of women who have been genitally mutilated, their accounts of survival and their determination to end this injustice. Find out what is being done to combat this crime against women from those committed to see change.
