Art v. Porn →
Porn can be art. It isn’t black and white.
On that note, pornographic selfies aren’t “art”
just because you make them black and white.
I’ve seen very artistic porn.
It exists. It’s called ‘Erotica.’ I think I make some good stuff, myself.
Erotica. n. e·rot·i·ca
#why not both
Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport? This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever. Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do? I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here.
because sex workers invented it. can we stop trying so hard to ~elevate~ stripping/pole dance from its roots? thx
Can we accept that both a.) sex workers invented it, and b.) that what they invented was and is worthy of elevated consideration? Because your average person tends to view pole-dancing as low-brow and trashy. I think it’s HELPFUL AS FUCK to point out to those people that pole-dancing DOES take dedicated athletics just like gymnastics and every other form of dance, and that de-stigmatizing pole-dancing could be easily argued as one of many steps to de-stigmatizing the sex industry and the people in it.
Be vocal about where these artistic motifs came from, but be enthusiastic about people from all walks of life embracing it. I want to see pole-dancers in strip-clubs, killing it. I want to see pole-dancers in the Olympics, lauded for their many years of practice and validated with medals symbolizing their athletic achievements. I want my friends to be proud to announce in mixed-company that they’ve been taking pole-dancing, and they love it. I want my friends who work as strippers to be able to talk about their job without making themselves small; without having to minimize their achievements and the work they do.
We can do both. We can see and applaud the amazing women who founded pole-dancing and helped it evolve - their inspiration, their drive, their motivations, their reality. AND WE CAN STILL recognize that what they created has massive artistic and athletic appeal. They created a style of dancing and a sport - and I think it’s FUCKING IMPORTANT to TREAT pole-dancing just like any other style of dance, or sport. Instead of treating it like some insular, wacked-out activity that ONLY sex-workers would be interested it. Part of de-stigmatizing sex-work is forcing people who DON’T work in the sex industry to confront the reality that sex workers are just people: people with a diverse range of hobbies. Strippers and sex workers are people who are inspired and driven and WORTHY, and so is the art they create.
This is sport. This is art. AND we should never forget the savvy as fuck women who built it.
there are way too many social justice warriors. we need a social justice scout and a social justice healer and a social justice black mage. seriously this videogame has like 10 different classes you can play and everyone goes for the one that just uses generic melee weapons?
I always hate it when I get onto a server, and there’s like seven social justice snipers.
