Hillary and Porn By Sarah Rode June 13, 2007
In Hillary Clintons America, pornography would be legal, accessible and protected. Thats the way it was while her husband was president, according to a woman who would know.
Jenna Jameson is a multi-millionaire feminist businesswoman who has endorsed Hillary because under the Clinton administration her industry flourished. She is very critical of President Bush because his administration has not been kind to her line of work the production and sale of pornography. Despite branching out into some mainstream projects, Miss Jameson is still considered one of the most famous porn stars around. She said in a recent interview, The Clinton administration was the best years for the adult industry, and I wish that Clinton would run again. I suppose she would know.
President Bush has been routinely critiqued for not doing enough to crack down on obscenity. According to Miss Jameson, however, it has been an uphill battle for her pornographic business:
When Republicans are in office, the problem is, a lot of times they try to put their crosshairs on the adult industry, to make a point. I look forward to another Democrat being in office. It just makes the climate so much better for us and I think that getting Bush out of office is the most important thing right now.
If Attorney General Gonzales lenient policies have been harsh on the adult industry, one can only imagine how tolerant Hillary Clintons administration would be of spreading pornography throughout our country.
Former President Clinton ignored the issue of obscenity, and it is safe to assume that Senator Clinton would do the same. According to an article in the Baltimore Sun, Obscenity cases came to a standstill under Janet Reno, President Bill Clinton's attorney general The ensuing years saw an explosion of porn, so much so that critics say that Americans tolerance for sexually explicit material rivals that of Europeans.
Fortunately, under the Bush administration, Attorney General John Ashcroft renewed the fight against obscenity, making the prosecution of obscenity a priority under his leadership. He stated in a speech in 2002, Obscenity invades our homes persistently through the mail, telephone, VCR, cable TV and now the Internet. This multimillion dollar industry has strewn its victims from coast to coast. Although he fought against the proliferation of pornography in America, his successor has been silent on the issue, just like Clintons attorney general.
It is unfortunate and inconsistent that Hillary and her feminist endorsers not only tolerate but also promote pornography. If they were true feminists, they would reject the objectification of women. It is interesting that in their fight to liberate women, they have instead endorsed the image of women as sexual objects. Pornography exploits womens sexuality for money. Thats liberating?

two words that should never be entered into a google search
This post is useless without pictures.
Be careful what you ask for.
The Amsterdam News, a weekly New York newspaper, is leading the way with articles like "Black New Yorkers: 'Gayest great-grandmother in the country,'" (August 14, 2003) which profiles the life of Rev. Magora Kennedy, a former Black panther, a mother of 5 and grandmother of 15, and an out lesbian whose activism dates back to Stonewall. Special attention is also paid to youth issues in "Kids with gay parents talk about their families" (May 12-May 18, 2005).
"The heroes are the folks that we probably won't see in Time or Newsweek", said Donna Red Wing of the Human Rights Campaign.... Maybe folks like Williamson Henderson, who was inside The Stonewall and arrested after the first night of the rebellion (sic).... He'll never forget the night he helped give birth to the Gay Rights movement. Stonewall helped unite Gays and lesbians, eventually growing into a powerful force, felt in all reaches of the national spectrum. "Stonewall was the first time I saw in a public way my GLBT community fighting back", said Donna. And, from the S.V.A.'s Jeremiah Newton: "Yes, we were part of the Stonewall Rebellion. Yes, we survived. Yes, we're still here.... It starts with one person standing up for their rights and the rights of their loved ones. That's Stonewall! It's an amazing, amazing story...." reflected Jeremiah. Do they consider themselves 'heroes'? "Well, I never regarded myself as one", Williamson said. "None of us regarded ouselves as 'heroes'. We were all victims of happenstance", he said. "But, after all these years, I think, yes, in fact, we are 'heroes'".
Henry Harry Hay, the founder of the modern American gay movement, died on October 24, 2002 at age 90.
Hay devoted his entire life to progressive politics, and in 1950 founded a state-registered foundation network of support groups for gays known as the Mattachine Society.
Hay was also a co-founder, in 1979, of the Radical Faeries, a movement affirming gayness as a form of spiritual calling. A rare link between gay and progressive politics
Harry was one of the first to realize that the dream of equality for our community could be attained through visibility and activism, said David M. Smith of the Human Rights Campaign in Washington, DC. When you were in a room with him, you had the sense you were in the company of a historic figure.
Mattachine took its name from a group of medieval dancers who appeared publicly only in mask, a device well understood by homosexuals of the 1950s. Hay devised its secret cell structure (based on the Masonic order) to protect individual gays and the nascent gay network. Officially co-gender, the group was largely male -- the Daughters of Bilitis, the pioneering lesbian organization, formed independently in San Francisco in 1956.
Though some criticized the Mattachine movement as insular, it grew to include thousands of members in dozens of chapters, which formed from Berkeley to Buffalo, and created a lasting national framework for gay organizing. Mattachine set the stage for rapid civil rights gains following 1969s Stonewall riots in New York City.
NAMBLA emerged from the tumultuous political atmosphere of the 1970s, particularly from the leftist wing of the Gay Liberation movement which followed the 1969 Stonewall Riots in New York City. Although discussion of gay adult-minor sex did take place, gay rights groups immediately following the Stonewall Riot were more concerned with issues of police harassment, nondiscrimination in employment, health care and other areas.
Absolute BS. Nothing 'invades' my home that I don't let in. I can protect myself from obscenity just fine, thank you very much.
I think the flourishing of pornography in the 90’s had more to do with the growth of the internet. I was rading a story somewhere recently however that said the porn business has taken a hit lately because porn is readily available now for free and doesn’t have to be paid for (sorry I can’t remember where I read that).
Jenna Jameson is still making porn?
She was supposed to be hot like 10 years ago, although I never quite understood her appeal.
Don’t porn stars have an expiration date???
Tell me about it! I got graveyard chills just looking at that title!!!
Yes, just ask Seka.
The title of this thread put a visual in my mind that I’d just as soon not be there.
Yes, and it's tatooed on their butts.
That may not be porn, but its still extremely obscene!
You took the words right out of my mouth.
I must admit...that's the first time I've seen or heard Jenna Jameson described in such a manner.
Needless to say, it is not the way I would describe her.
