… [P]ersons are trafficked into the international sex trade, often by force, fraud, or coercion. The sex industry has rapidly expanded over the past several decades.

THAT IS RAPE

We need to be talking about this and we need to be making sex work safe. No one should be made to feel like this treatment is okay.

This is why I’m so porn industry critical. And everyone who pretends there is nothing going on is fooling themselves. I used to be addicted to porn, My sexual abuser introduced hardcore pornography to me at such a young age, it really fucked me up. I was literally having to watch the most degrading and disgusting shit to get off and it was depressing the fuck out of me. I told myself that the girls were consenting adults in order to make myself feel better. But more often than not, that simply is not true and consent can often be dubious within the porn industry. Please think about what you’re supporting when you watch certain online porn. There are indie porn makers and female pornographers who are not sex trafficking, manipulating, abusing, and harming women and teens. You just really have to look.

Leslie Morgan Steiner was in an abusive relationship, though at first she didn’t realize it. In a talk at TEDxRainier, she tells the disturbing story of her relationship, correcting misconceptions many people hold about victims of domestic violence, and explaining how we can all help break the silence.

If you or someone you know is facing domestic violence or an absuive relationship, you can find a list of resources here. The U.S. National Sexual Assault Hotline is 1-800-656-4673 (HOPE), and RAINN offers a secure online hotline.

“When men say that they “love to see the woman underneath the makeup,” they’re not saying they want to see your leg stubble and greasy bangs—they’re saying they want you to be better at hiding your maintenance routine. Because the maintenance spoils the fantasy.”
