Anyone else in the situation where you only work on the weekends, and you get to watch everyone enjoy their day, Facebook posts are nothing but people out and about, while you are stuck at work until close?
"I have never known birds of different species to flock together. The very concept is unimaginable. Why, if that happened, we wouldn’t stand a chance! How could we possibly hope to fight them?" - The Birds (1963)
I talked about that a bit in this post, though now that I’m reading it again I don’t think that I expressed myself particularly well.
I believe that gay porn is misogynist for two central reasons. The first of these is that the smaller and frailer in appearance of the men always takes the submissive role during sex. I would argue that this is because being penetrated is associated with women and femaleness, as is physical weakness. The idea of a large, strong man being penetrated by a smaller, more delicate one is unimaginable, because this would constitute an overt rejection of the masculine gender role. The more physically powerful man would in essence be seen as lowering himself to the “women’s role,” which would elicit disgust in the viewer.
This brings me to the second aspect of misogyny that is present in gay porn, which I had never really considered before cisfiend pointed it out to me. (He is, sadly, no longer on Tumblr, but I wanted to credit him anyway.) There is absolutely no room for expressions of femininity in gay porn whatsoever. If you pay attention to the types of men who are featured, they nearly always conform very closely to the masculine gender role, and this is true even in the case of “twink” performers who are valued for their thin and youthful appearance. This is likely in part because consumers of gay porn are incredibly hostile towards men in porn who are perceived as being even slightly feminine. In addition to this, it is quite common for “tops” to use misogynist slurs against “bottoms” during sex, which links back to what I said earlier about the role of the receiver in anal sex being associated with women. The receptive partner is a “bitch” and a “slut” because he has allowed himself to be lowered to a position associated with femaleness and thus with inferiority.
I hope that this made sense; it’s been a long day and an even longer week.
Wow, feminists really do think gay porn is misogynist
Even when it’s concerning two men, it’s still all about their precious little cooters, because reasons and feels
I don’t give a shit if this is over a year old, I am here to clear the air for you. In response to her two “statements”
1. Your idea that physical appearance is comparison to sexual roles is ludicrous. A simple search brings up video productions companies such as Randy Blue, Falcon Studios, Titan Men, and Jake Cruise all disband your theory. The models all range in size, but their physical looks do no matter when it comes to sexual roles. They can be the exact same size and build. There are THOUSANDS of videos that show smaller framed men topping larger/muscular men. They are not “lowering themselves” to a womans role. It is nothing but sexual dynamics. A sexually submissive person does not mean they cannot be masculine. I repeat. A SEXUALLY SUBMISSIVE PERSON DOES NOT MEAN THEY CANNOT BE MASCULINE.
On the flip side as well as responding to the second statement:
2. Your concept of “no room for femininity” is absurd. Men are allowed to be feminine if they want to be. MANY porn studios feature men who have effeminate traits, as not all gay men have to be masculine. Once again. NOT ALL MEN HAVE TO BE MASCULINE. Many gay men enjoy viewing the different forms of sexual dynamics. These “slurs” you are talking about is also a part of the sexual dynamics, because guess what? Some people get off to the idea of being submissive, no matter their “masculine” traits. Submissive men in my opinion are STRONGER than “tops”, because they are able to let go of control. They can let someone lead them. It is all about trust and being able to handle themselves. Just because YOU are being penetrated DOES NOT MEAN YOU ARE WEAKER. As for being called “slut” and “bitch”? Some people love that. What happens in the bedroom between two consenting adults does NOT mean they play the same role every day. Men that are veiwed as “alpha males” can easily be a submissive bottom for someone behind closed doors. Some men that seem like they wouldnt harm a fly are some of the most dominant tops ever.
Above anything else, here are 2 final pieces of information.
1. GAY PORN IS FANTASY. WHAT OCCURS ON FILM IS NOT AN ACTUAL REPRESENTATION OF GAY SEX IN REAL LIFE. IT IS NOTHING BUT SCRIPTS AND LIGHTING. NOT ALL SEXUAL ACTS IN VIDEOS REPRESENT SEXUAL ROLES IN BED. PORN IS NOTHING BUT ENTERTAINMENT. WE JERK OFF TO IT. NOTHING ELSE.
2. GAY MALE PORN IS NOT ABOUT WOMEN WHATSOEVER. GAY MALE PORN IS ABOUT TWO CONSENTING ADULTS THAT HAVE AGREED TO A SEXUAL ACT TOGETHER. NO MATTER THE ROLES BE IT MASCULINE OR FEMININE, GAY MALE SEX DOES NOT INVOLVE WOMEN WHATSOEVER.
At the beginning of the fight scene between O-Ren and The Bride, O-Ren says “I hope you saved your energy. If you haven’t you may not last 5 minutes”. It is exactly 4 minutes and 59 seconds from the time she steps forward and the music cues, until the fatal blow of the duel.
