PornSnub: 13 April 2019

When pornography is … normal, a whole population of men is primed to dehumanise women and to enjoy inflicting assault sexually … Pornography is the perfect preparation — motivator and instruction manual in one — for… sexual atrocities.
― Catharine MacKinnon

7ada5eef-432c-442a-9b00-3946f03222f3.pngSince 2013, the National Center on Sexual Exploitation has published an annual Dirty Dozen List to name and shame the mainstream players in America that perpetuate sexual exploitation—whether that be through sex trafficking, prostitution, sexual objectification, sexual violence and/or pornography. This issue’s showcased offender: Amazon. They exploit their workers, so why wouldn’t they promote material that sexualises children and normalises the dehumanisation and sexual commodification of women?

  • Amazon Prime inserts unnecessary, gratuitous nudity and simulated sex scenes into many of its original programmings, and provides faulty tools for blocking unwanted recommendations for sexually explicit programs.
  • Items for sale on Amazon include child-like sex dolls, photography books with eroticized child nudity, pornographic magazines, and clothing items, and more. Their Kindle e-reader is riddled with sexually explicit content containing incest, babysitter, and group-sex themes.

Please consider buying from a more ethical business.
