On Google Searches and Blogs: “Men to Andrea: We want Germaine porn”

Post to Twitter

From a post at the blog Vociferate:

“This week, on reading the search terms that weirdos had used to get to my blog, I found the third of what seems to be becoming some kind of trend. This week it was ‘fucking Germain Greer’, in weeks gone by it has been ‘Germaine Greer cunt pictures’ or ‘Germaine Greer’s cunt’.

“Now, I had no idea Germaine had such a powerful sexual hold over the male mind. I’m not saying she’s ugly, but I was certainly surprised so many men seem to think she’s so infinitely delish that they search for Greer porn over any other type. Evidently, there must be some underground movement set up in response to just how fucking hot Germaine happens to be, and unlike in most circumstances, her age hasn’t put anyone off. Germaine is now in her sixties, and apparently still one hot mama! …

… “Men searching for porn are not looking for healthy expressions of female sexuality, they’re looking for unhealthy expressions of male sexuality. Females are used in porn, but porn isn’t really about them. This is why the men after Germaine porn were looking for images of her being used in one way or another. So, men were looking for turn-on material of a feminist being used as a thing. The reduction of a feminist is sexually exciting, a feminist woman is more threatening to men than even a non-feminist woman, and if reducing non-feminist women to things is sexy, reducing feminists to things is more so.

“Porn isn’t about the sexuality of women, it is about the degredation of women. These men were not searching for porn featuring Germaine Greer because they find her sexy, they were searching for it because they wanted to see an uppity woman get put in her place. They wanted to see some feminazi bitch fall under the dominance and mastery of the penis. Porn is not an expression of male horniness or libidinous nature; porn is an expression of male fear of women and desire to humiliate and degrade them to make themselves feel better. Seeing women ‘fucked’ makes men feel like men because it features the conquering of something frightening. Porn can never be congruent with with emancipation of women because it is about the submission of those same women.” …

You can read the entire post here. It resonated with me because I have seen the Google searches that have brought folks to this blog, and some (e.g.”law professor boobs orgasm“) are a little disturbing.
