Prostitution, Neither Sex nor Work

Holbeck: A Case Study of Hell

Holbeck is a case study of hell. It is misogyny and objectification in the legal system, a triumph of men’s rights activists. Alan Caton, the detective who led the investigation into the murders of five prostituted women in Ipswich in 2006 and subsequently led the strategy to put an end to street prostitution in Ipswich …

What about the girls?

‘Trans’ is the Wrong Answer to a Real Problem. What about the girls? This contains upsetting pictures but pre-teen kids see stuff like this daily so why should we warn you? by Dr EM Part I: Porn Culture. Transgenderism, for teenage girls, is the wrong answer to a woman-and-girl-hating culture. The non-transactivists I know, the …

A Meaningful Transition?

The Road to Hell…is paved with good intentions. OBJECT! usually steers clear of criticising feminist colleagues. Nobody’s perfect, we all make mistakes, broad church etc. But when the intention is ‘kind’ but the impact is appalling, something has to be said. Dr Julia Long has said it: ‘Much of what is written and spoken in …

Why are Young Women Identifying as ‘Asexual’?

This article was originally presented as a talk at the Rad Fem Collective conference in London on 22nd September 2019. Increasing numbers of young women are choosing identify as ‘asexual’. These women reject the role of ‘sex object’. Many express disgust with porn-sick sexuality, to the extent that some call themselves ‘repulsed asexuals’. However, many don’t oppose porn, prostitution and sexual objectification of other women. Why? I argue that this is because they interpret their ‘asexuality’ only as a personal preference; all other preferences, including the use of pornography, are seen as equal and ‘valid’. If these ‘asexual’ women became feminists, could they reinterpret their ‘asexuality’/celibacy as a positive form of resistance to porn-sickness and compulsory heterosexuality?

Dworkin protested with us and porn profits plummeted!

OBJECT has been campaigning against the London Porn Film Festival, alongside #NotBuyingIt and London Anti-Porn Women. The films due to be screened were advertised as containing extreme violence, including necrophilia. We reported this to Camden Council, prompting an investigation and forcing the pornographers to switch venues last minute. On Saturday 27th April, we protested outside the grotty pub where the event took place. The organisers generously gave us a faux ‘invoice’, informing us how much money they’d lost due to our efforts! Pornography comes at the cost of women’s lives, dignity and hopes of liberation. Helping to fight and OBJECT to porn is priceless.
