Default Why Your Daughter Wants to Be a Porn Star (Spoiler: IT'S ALL YOUR FAULT)

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jennif...b_3813727.html

So... apparently parents are the biggest reason women go into porn. And it's because they were shitty parents (OR, the biggest cop out of all - they were good parents, but not good enough).

This line "In fact, these are the reasons why your daughter wants to be a porn star." makes me wanna scream.

I had zero of these issues. My parents and I had a typical hot/cold teenage experience, like *all* parents deal with.

But the parts that make me *really really* mad, are these:

1) She's trying to say that *THESE* particular things are what make us decide to get into porn. It couldn't possibly be anything else. Even with the quote
Quote:
"The truth about pornography is that the motivations that cause a young woman to enter or exit the business are as complex as is the brain that makes the decision. Whittling cause and effect down to a single reason -- number eight! No! Four! Wait, nine sounds good -- is tantamount to trying to explain why someone decided to become a neuroscientist. "
she's still attaching it all to the idea that these reasons are the ONLY reasons why women choose pornography.

2) It takes an already exhausting and taxing job of being a parent and makes it worse. Thinking you are personally responsible for the decision of your child to get into any career you may not approve of is just ludicrous.

3) This quote:
Quote:
An 18-year-old girl's career choice to go into porn isn't entirely attributable to her parents just like an 18-year-old boy's career choice to become a neuroscientist isn't entirely attributable to his.
Wait... WHAT? Why are sons being brought into this at ALL? And why, of all fucking things, are you eluding the idea that only boys would choose to be neuroscientists??

This article is just rage inducing to me. While it has a handful of good points about parenting as a whole (Pay attention to your kid, don't let the tv raise them, teach them right from wrong, be their parent not their friend, and have open lines of communication) the overall conjecture is just fucking ludicrous.

If a porn star leaves the industry, and was mistreated while she worked in the industry, I can understand being jaded. It's like any career. But for fuck sake, don't throw the industry under a bus just because your parents sucked, or you found God. It's disgusting, and way more degrading than the porn that you greatly enjoyed while you were doing it. And certainly don't use the barely casual "evidence" you've gotten from non-numerical "quite a few girls" who've left the business as your proof that all people in porn do it because they had a shitty childhood.


-- edit --
Also, why didn't she touch on guys who work in porn *at all*. That annoys me just as much.

Eh.. I dunno.. the article doesn't enrage me.

Anyone with part of a brain can see her numbered list is not backed by any science. Just her personal experience.

I agree with killshot, eh. It's her opinion. I don't think it's really presented as a scientific study or anything. I don't necessarily disagree with her on many of her points either(except the religious tripe). People from broken homes are probably more prone to getting into lifestyles that are outside the box. Anecdotal evidence, for sure, but I've noticed a lot of the same things. I do disagree with her on her premise that being in porn is instantly a bad thing, there are people who seem to enjoy the lifestyle well enough. There are people who love and hate their jobs in any industry.

And if it were sane & logical people that inhabited the internet, I would probably not be anywhere near as irritated. Unfortunately, it's not. This is yet another thing that I expect to see as canon fodder when I bring up to new people that I work in porn, and they don't agree -_-

Also - yes, lots of people hate their jobs. The difference is that 99.9% of jobs don't have the huge hate-mongering that sex work does, so this is more than just a "I hate my job" article. It gives idiots more reason to further disenfranchise sex workers.

I hate when these types of articles imply that people in the industry have no self respect or self esteem. I don't show my naked exposed self because I feel bad. I do it because it's fun and I'm fucking sexy. Der.

This daughter/son talk is kind of bullshit. Apparently being a porn star is only bad if you're female?

One of my biggest problems with people is how so many of them take theories, assumptions,circumstantial evidence, 2nd hand information etc. and turn them into facts within their minds. Or turning generalities into blanket absolutes.
When people say to me "you know what they were thinking, don't ya?" Or "i know what they're tryin to do." It makes me want to slap them. I DON'T know what they were thinking. And neither do you!And unless you asked them you don't know what someone's motives are. Even then its not fact its just info closer to the source.
People need to understand that their view of something is one of many. When they judge or react to something that may not even exist it just compounds man's inability to communicate.

I think people get involved in the industry because it is something that interests them and of course Money has a lot to do with it. A young lady who is successful at it can pay off college and prolly a house with a career in the valley.... anyways this industry is where the money is.. Ask Miley shes selling grips of albums....

It's a money thing, but there is more to it than that. Though I'm sure people have different motives for doing things, working in porn requires you to think outside of the box because there is such a stigma around the whole thing.
