Stop Watching Porn – Start Fighting Patriarchy!
Protest Pornhub’s NYC Porn Film Festival
From Friday, Feb 27 – Sunday, March 1st, Pornhub, the largest porn site in the world, will host its first ever Porn Film Festival in Bushwick, NY. This marks a further step in the mainstreaming of pornography, even as pornography becomes ever more violent, cruel, dehumanizing, degrading, and humiliating towards women.
Consider a few of the all-time most viewed videos on Pornhub:
“Tight pussy gets smashed” – celebrating violence against the female anatomy (57+ million views)
“Don’t tell mommy” – portraying a teenager eagerly giving her step-dad oral sex and more (25+ million views)
“Mandingo destroys her tight asian snatch” celebrating racist stereotypes and featuring a Black man “destroying” a tiny Asian woman’s genitalia and dignity (26+ million views)
“Arrested cheerleader fucked” – celebrating the portrayal of a young teenager being extensively violated by the cop who arrested her (27+ million views)
“Stepmom and [daughter] fucks and sucks her boyfriend’s cock” celebrating a racist portrayal of a daughter and step-mom in Muslim headscarves revealing themselves to be sex-crazed “sluts” who team up on a teenage boy (17+ million views).
