"If there was a politician, artist, or other public figure who voiced an opinion on women with one-tenth the misogyny seen in the average porn film, men and women alike would be lining up to condemn them in a moment. But because it is done for male sexual gratification, it is untouchable."
~ Jonah Mix, Deep Green Resistance member
"Feminists have a long-standing, well-articulated critique of pornography within our patriarchal culture, this critique is not well-known, but you should seek to be versed in it."
~ Robert Jensen PhD, UT Austin professor, author of “Getting Off: Pornography and The End of Masculinity.”
Deep Green Resistance aims to dismantle the culture of domination & subordination, and the infrastructure that perpetuates it. Our analysis is that sex doesn’t sell, objectification does. And objectification of women is connected to objectification of the earth and all living beings. As activists, we must, on a daily basis, align ourselves with women and the earth, and recover ourselves from porn culture.
This upcoming conference in Boston, July 7-11, is an excellent way to learn more about the present state of porn-saturated culture and its impact on male violence and how to confront and dismantle patriarchy & hate speech in our communities. Many DGR member will be there. Join us!
