Noam Chomsky Finally Speaks Out Against Pornography
Three years ago, Nikki Craft and I created the activist website Hustling The Left. It's purpose was to hold men on the Left accountable to being silent on issues directly related to women's liberation from patriarchal exploitation and subordination, specifically their silence on or support of the corporate pimping of women in pornography.
You can visit that site by clicking here. WARNING: THERE IS GRAPHICALLY RACIST, ANTISEMITIC, HOMOPHOBIC, AND MISOGYNISTIC MATERIAL PRESENTED ON THIS SITE: SURVIVORS OF SEXIST AND RACIST ABUSE MAY BE TRIGGERED OR REPULSED BY THESE IMAGES. THE MATERIAL PRESENTED IS PORNOGRAPHY.
Nikki just informed me that there's now a 2008 Noam Chomsky video interview, in which he addresses pornography specifically as something that is degrading to women. Nikki was in contact with him about this issue back when we were working on the website. His correspondence with her is documented. Click here for that. SAME WARNING AS ABOVE ABOUT CONTENT.
Here is that video.
