Amy Goodman vs the Erotophobes


Hey boys and girls, remember when we found out that Democracy Now's Amy Good man was going to do an article in Hustler, and I speculated how long it would take for thre Erotopobes on the left to snack on her?It's feeding time......Meet Kirsten Anderberg, editor of The Loose Cannon and Eat The Press. Whatever they are:
QUOTE
Amy Goodman in Hustler July 2005: This is Indy Media???Amy GoodMAN, Spread Your Legs For Us!By Kirsten Anderberg (www.kirstenanderberg.com) Amy GoodMAN is running an article in the July Hustler Magazine. And I call for Amy to spread her legs, herself, like the women she is exploiting for her profit. If Amy is willing to put her articles between women in degrading crotch shots, then it is time Amy herself, was subjugated in similar manner so she, herself, can be reduced to what every other woman in Hustler is reduced to, "pussy." I mean, come on, what are women besides "pussy?" Right? Right, Amy? Oh wait, Amy is the elite feminist who does not have to show her crotch in Hustler? I call Amy GoodMAN out right here and now, as an independent woman/feminist journalist. Amy, it is time you got in submissive poses with your crotch out for the public if you are planning on profiting from writing "indy media" inside Hustler. Otherwise you are a full-blown capitalist pimp. I cannot express my disgust at "feminists" trying to ally themselves with the porn industry as some sort of "sexual liberation." The porn industry has ZERO to do with sexual liberation for women, and is about the exploitation of women's bodies for profit, SOLELY. There is absolutely NOTHING comparable that men are subjected to publicly like porn on women in America. Shaven to look prepubescent, pumped up with plastic breasts, women are posed in ridiculous postures, starved to look thin enough to not be threatening, and I am sorry, but this is all about packaging women as meat in capitalist fashion for men. For a thousand plus year, women's feet were deformed by foot binding in China, and the men eroticized the hell out of these crippled women who could not walk on three inch soles. No different here in this century. If we keep women injected with big balloons of silicone on their chest, shaving every bit of their adult hair, and smeared with every kind of makeup imaginable, on diets, walking on stilted shoes, forever trying to become LESS, men LOVE it. It makes them feel in control. I have long said porn is not erotica. Porn is a system that is set up to institutionalize who women are here to serve. You will notice it is not MEN'S genitalia plastered all over the porn industry. Only gay male porn is centered on penis', mainstream porn is predominantly female exploitation. But as you will notice, whether it is gay porn for men, or mainstream women-exploit porn, it is still predominantly MEN who support and buy the stuff. The reason, in my opinion, is not that women do not like erotica or sex, but that there is little erotica made for women, rather than ABOUT women as the subjugated meat for men. Men have even asurped gay female porn to be about them! By men using women to women sex as male porn, it has made men think they can just INTERJECT themselves upon any lesbian couple, in their minds, at least. I noticed that when I was in a fem lesbian relationship, we were constantly hassled by gross men saying sexual things to us in public. When I hang with butch dykes, men shut up. Interesting, eh? The precious male genitalia must not be seen like women's genitals are. If men's genitals were paraded around as casually as Hustler and Playboy parade women's gentials and breasts, all these men would have huge body inferiority complexes like the women do. women and their breasts. Men would be getting silicon penis implants and would be worrying constantly about not measuring up. Men do not want to have to live like that, so they instead consume, produce and profit off of women's bodies. I saw a cable special on Hugh Heffner's "crib" not long ago. They showed all these rooms in his mansion filled with dyed blonde, big chested, thin, young women milling about with little dogs in their arms for companionship. When these women were asked what they DO, not a one said, "I am using this time living at the Heffner mansion to finish up my college education." They all were doing things like manicuring their nails, and working on their hair "for Hugh," who is the age of their grandfather. It makes me sick that people still glamorize this behavior. Remember the old children's rhyme "Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater, Had a wife and couldn't keep her, Put her in a pumpkin shell, and There he kept her very well?" That is what I see Hugh Heffner doing. Putting women in pumpkin shells so he can have access to them. I see women who want to profit off of porn trying to play porn off as completely harmless. Yet I hear the things they say about other feminists. These women and men in the porn industry actually use things like calling intelligent feminists who critique this mass exploitation of women "ugly" as their argument to shut us up! That is a third grade argument. We can't all hole up supported by Hugh in a pumpkin shell. Some of us actually DO things, besides our nails and hair! And looking "good" for men is low on our list of priorities. I mean, Amy GoodMAN surely is not looking like the women she has her article saddled between. What is up with that? Why doesn't Amy have to dye her hair and plaster HER face with makeup like the other women in Hustler? For that matter, have we seen the naked crotch of Hugh Heffner's daughter who now runs the empire supposedly? And why not? What makes some women think they have a right to make a profit from women doing things they, themselves, would never subjugate themselves to doing? I call out EVERY woman involved with the production and sales of Hustler and Playboy, whether it be Amy GoodMAN or Hugh Heffner's daughter, to SHOW YOUR CROTCH NAKED IN PUBLIC NOW LIKE THE WOMEN YOU EXPLOIT FOR PROFIT. If Amy GoodMAN is not willing to be subjugated in a like manner to the women around her in Hustler, then she needs to look at why she is writing in Hustler to begin with. http://users.resist.ca/~kirstena/pageamygoodman.html
Oh Kirst, Kirst....where do I begin...?Well...let start with Amy GoodMAN. MAN. Right off the bat we know how you feel about the male of the species. Is this the best you can do in terms of challenging Amy's aurguments or even the fact that the article appeared in Hustler?

I am not here to defend Larry Flynt, but if you take a pretty close look, I don;t see degraded women, I see women who are proud of thier sexuality and open about it...not degraded. Want degraded women?...check out "The Price is Right," where women of all shapes and sizes go nuts for a refrigerator given away by a walking cadaver (sorry Bob....it's time to retire).

Wrong, Kirst....it's the WOMEN who are in control, you idiot! BECAUSE women knwo what men supposedly want, women can wrap men around thier little fingers and get them to do anything they want. Or does the name "Lysistrata" mean anything to you?

Again, I don;t know what porn she's been looking at...men;s genitalia are prominant in most porn....in fact, thank God for Larry that you can SEE a penis in his rags. You know there are many porno videos that do not show the man's face...but show the woman's face and body in all its glory. Maybe you should be asking about MALE degradation?

Now I KNOW this woman does not know what she is talking about. Thanks to porn, men are CONSTANTLY worried about whether thier whing-whang is 9 or 10 inches, or some impossible length and girth. Here in LA, penile implants are as common as breast implants? What planet are you on, Kirst? You never heard of the joke about how every man is 8 inches, no matter how small he is. This is taking me to places I do not want to go. Nor would you want me...so....

Like what? Do you care for three kids, one of them mentally challenged, as well as a mom who is in the beginning stages of Alshiemers (sp?) as one adult actress I know is? Have you dedicated your life, or part of it, to making sure that adult actresses do not die of STD's like Sharon Mitchell? And even though it was more of a side show, Mary Carey in running for Governor showed more desire to actually effect change than you have being angry at anything with an X chromosome (and I know what some of you are going to say about Carey....which, when you think about it, is EXACTLY the point!).And in all of your screed you never once said anything about the CONTENT of Amy's article. WHat did she say? What points do you differ with? NO, you are pissed simply because her name is attached to an article in magzaine read by millions of WOMEN **AND** MEN. People who may not have had that much contact with progressive views anywhere else.And like you said, there are some who would easily take what you say and make disparaging remarks about your looks, of which I have no knowlege of, or your gender prefecernce, which I don't know of either. I will not go that route, for many of us who either work in adult, or enjoy its fruits, have a higher standard. But smearing uninformed invective with that broad brush, take takes TRUE ugliness, of which, Ms Anderberg, you posess copious amounts of.
