Lauren. Duke. Porn.

Posted on Mar 9 2014 - 3:42pm by dias

So I heard about this chick who was stripping her way through college at Duke University. I was like ok whatever, what’s the big deal? Well, I guess that first off, she wasn’t stripping (necessarily) but doing hard core porn.

This girl, Lauren, has been being bullied at school and online because of this and also made some comments about how she enjoys doing porn. And this is pissing people off left and right. Which is pissing me off at these people.

About her comments about porn being empowering: Why can’t porn be empowering to a woman? Why is it that only men can get something out of it? Women love sex too! And some women love doing porn. We don’t know how she’s lived, so porn very well could have been empowering for her and help her learn a lot. Just because it’s not something you personally would do or would benefit from or even understand, doesn’t mean that has to be the same for everyone.

Then some people wanna get all up in arms because she felt like it was less degrading that being a waitress. I’ve never done porn nor waitressing. But I have been in customer service and I believe her statement. Generally, people feel that they are automatically better than you just because you’re in the customer service field. They will boss you around, treat you like crap, be rude and demeaning. What’s worse is that because you’re in this field, you kinda just have to take it. It makes you feel less than, it makes you feel like shit. I imagine that in porn, you get to call the shots. So, I see how it might be a better field for her, somewhere she’d feel more comfortable. But I mean, really no one should be judging porn and how it affects them besides people who have done porn. And not even then because different strokes for different folks ;)

Now, on to the main point…. Are you disgusted by how she’s making her way through college? It just makes you angry and disgusted? Great! Give her your money so she doesn’t have to do porn. Oh, you don’t want to? Then shut your big mouth. How dare anyone judge someone for how they make money. If it’s not hurting anyone, who cares? This intelligent girl, gets into a great school and doesn’t have the money to go. Instead of not going and working shitty minimum wage jobs or even going to crappy school that she can afford, she decided to find a way to make it work for her so she could go to a great school and not have to struggle. And yeah, how jealous are you that she won’t have shit ton of student loans to pay off for years and years after going to school? Good for her! Would I do it? No. Would you do it? Obviously not. But she did/is doing it, she’s comfortable and happy doing it and she’s getting a great education and not struggling to make ends meet nor racking up tons of debt. I love that! She does not deserve to be judged nor bullied. Am I the only one outraged that no one cares that she’s getting harassed every day? Is bullying bad except for when you deem the person deserves it? WTF?!

I don’t understand the hatred and judgement towards her. I really don’t. This literally has nothing to do with anyone but her and like I said, if it’s that much of for YOU for whatever reason, then pony up the cash. Donate money to her. Give her enough to pay for her education and leave it alone. If you don’t want to give her the cash then shut your mouth about how she’s making money. Simple as that.
