"Skeptics of pornography’s danger will often point out that porn has been around for a long time. After all, cavemen drew sexual images on their stone walls, and the ancient Greeks painted it on their pottery. "It’s nothing new."
But comparing ancient paintings on clay vases to today’s endless stream of live action videos depicting every possible sexual act, hate speech, and female degradation - and available 24 hours a day on a device that fits into your pocket isn’t exactly comparing apples to apples. Today’s pornified culture is something very new. It’s something the world has never seen.
It’s no longer a private problem, it’s a public health problem.”
The World Health Organization estimates that “one in four women will be raped, beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused in her lifetime, sometimes with fatal consequences.”9 Anything happening on this scale is clearly normal, a part of everyday life, the behavior into which a global culture of male dominance is socializing men as a matter of course.
Deep Green Resistance is a radical feminist organization, comprised of pro-feminist men and feminist women. Men as a class are waging a war against women. Rape, battering, incest, prostitution, pornography, poverty, and gynocide are both the main weapons in this war and the conditions that create the sex-class women.
As radicals, we intend to dismantle the entire system of patriarchy that perpetuates a culture of domination & subordination. The freedom of women as a class cannot be separated from the resistance to the dominant culture as a whole.
