Jennifer Lopez, Porn, and the Hypocrisy of Equality

Inequality Elliot Zaret from TheGuyCode sent me a link to this article, which is superb. It discusses the hypocrisy of female stars, such as Jennifer Lopez, who complain about the way women are portrayed in film but then "flaunt their stuff" when it is to their advantage. The article is also interesting in that it is laid out as a dialogue between himself and Lisa Napoli, the co-author, with each side giving their own take on the issue. Both agree that women's sexual power is a very real force and one that isn't recognized as such these days. It's a great read.

I cannot believe the nerve of the women/singers/actresses who complain about sexually exposing themselves as demeaning and that adult entertainment is degrading when it's them who are really want to do this! Scott, Adam, if you ask me...I think people who preach against something but engage in it anyway are the true hypocrites...and yes this includes feminists with all due respect!

Hi Tom, thanks for the compliment.

The real reason this site has such interesting stuff is that people participate in it. I didn't find that article myself, Elliot contacted me directly about it. Likewise, dozens of readers submit news to this site on a regular basis.

I think the reason why this site has become a success is that it has successfully built a community. And I think the community will continue to expand over time.

Great article, but it ended rather abruptly. That said, it's heartening to see someone, somewhere, discussing what we all know to be true (but no one will say): that for the most part modern women are playing it both ways, and will continue to play it both ways so long as men let them get away with it.

Here's to progress!
