Duke university freshman announces her porn name, Belle Knox

If you have not heard the whole story by now lets recap. A girl goes off to college, and finds out that it is WICKED expensive! She doesn’t have many options, but decides that porn may be a good option to make some money. “Good” option may be up for some debate, but as far as making good money is concerned, no one is disputing this!

According to Business insider women porn stars are paid the following:
$800 for a girl-girl scene
$1,000 for a guy-girl scene
$1,200 or more for anal sex
$4,000 or more for “double penetration”
They go on to say that on average, a woman porn star will film about 100-150 scenes in a year. Do some basic math and that is a… well, a f*ck ton of college credit hours!

After she starts doing porn, she eventually gets “outed” by her school paper. Then the story goes viral. Now EVERYONE knows what she has been up to, and the whole time she just wants to remain anonymous to some degree. The internet is full of scary people, and I can totally understand the desire to keep those people from finding out anything about you!

I come from the internet! Give me everything good in the world so I can shit on it!

OK, so a young girl is in college, and wants to live a life consisting of more than just Roman noodles and student loan debt. Makes sense, but not to everyone.

According to the news report above the Duke Student, who as far as I can tell wants to remain anonymous with the exception of her porn name, has been receiving death threats and rape threats.

Sound familiar? Why is it that every time a woman in our society makes a choice that sets them apart, they are completely ridiculed and threatened? Oh yeah, we live in a society filled with misogyny, that’s why.

But despite the news report at the top of the fold, a quick tour around twitter will show that the majority of the reaction out there has been positive.

I went to twitter TRYING to find negative stuff, and I couldn’t!

But I am not here to doubt the claims that people have been harassing her. Hell, it’s the internet. That is kind of what it is known for. It is what prompted her to reveal her porn identity in the first place. Further more, Belle Knox posted this on her twitter on March 3rd.

To bring this all together, lets have some dialog here. What is the REAL problem that people are upset over? If you want my oppinion on the matter, the world is still not ready to accept a woman taking control of her own sexuality.

Belle Knox, again not her real name, has taken control of her sexuality, she has used it to her advantage, it has empowered her, made her stronger, and given her some cold hard cash in the process. Not to shabby considering a lot of people only get some mild sexual release, mixed with some awkward self consciousnesses when they have sex.

shame
Oh god, why did I ask them to dress up like Beowolf!? I should have asked for Kevin Sorbo! Stupid!

In our current society, we still are frightened of the concepts of sexual agency, and sexual autonomy. Women are still not allowed the same sexual freedom that men are, and it is damaging to all of us, but most certainly it is more damaging to women.

A woman wants to dress sexy? “Whore!”
A woman wants to do porn? “Slut!”
A woman had a child and she isn’t married? “Tramp!”

Many of of still talk like this. Many of of us still victim blame. Many of us justify the status quo. It has to stop, it is time to stop. The double standards need to stop, the shamming needs to stop. It just does. END. OF. STORY.
