We checked the dictionary and the definition of feminist is not “whatever the hell a woman feels like doing.” To be precise, feminism is “the doctrine advocating social, political, and all other rights of women equal to those of men,” and a feminist is someone who actively works towards those goals. For all women. On the planet. Nobody will ever be able to convince one angry girl that pornography is a route to social and political equality for all women on the planet, and in fact, the majority of the evidence currently available points to the exact opposite. If you are a true feminist, you do not say to the untold numbers of women hurt by pornography, “I don’t really care about your experiences, because porn is such a lucrative job/my boyfriend and I really like it/it makes me feel sexxeee.” So keep your porn if you must, but don¹t call yourself a feminist.
