Um, Snapchat wasn't around in the mid-late 1990s.

Yes, but don't you see how that makes it worse? She couldn't do it at all and now these children are doing it whenever they want with whoever they want with very little risk.  Meanwhile her vagina has dried up and blown away.

These are not your father's Playboys. Letting a man ejaculate on your face is not empowering under anyone's definition of the term. It's debasing.

'Pearl clutching' takes on a whole new meaning in regards to the article.

Third wave feminism taught me that anything any woman does at any time for any reason is "empowering."

The comment section got it right. What's obscene are the student loans necessary to get through college.  The undischargeable-in-bankruptcy student loans.

Somebody has student loans out the wazoo.
Jealous much?
 
2014-03-12 01:18:50 PM
Yes, this is a symptom of a "debased" culture and not how extraordinarily overpriced tuition is.  Sorry lady, she can't pay Duke with money from waiting tables.  In fact, she'd barely be able to make student loan payments with that.  It's nothing to do with this generation's morality, and everything to do with your generation's greed.

2014-03-12 01:21:50 PM

offmymeds: Duke sucks.


And swallows.

And does anal.

And, it would now seem, is OK with guys ejaculating on her face.
 
2014-03-12 01:22:53 PM
The writer made a common mistake. She has her feelings on a subject and then can't understand how someone else could feel differently.

She thinks the college lady is protesting and lying, because the writer herself wouldn't enjoy doing porn.

The reason you hate something is the very reason someone else loves it.
The reason you love something is the very reason someone else hates it.

Live and let live.

THIS SO MUCH!

I just wish Ms. B Knox would get it through her thick skull, and start talking about it from this POV.
Also, why does the pearl clutcher go on about Ms. Knox's clothes for the Piers Morgan interview? Hint: Larger part of the problems concerning females in our culture.
 
2014-03-12 01:23:18 PM
Whatever she wants to do is fine by me.

I am not so sure about her belief she is helping to smash patriarchy though, but whatever, let's see some more of those pearls, baby.

I gotta go with this.  Only problem with paying your way thru a good school with porn however is that you might as well keep doing porn.

It has been revealed that her father is a doctor and the family says they can pay her tuition. I guess good on her for getting a...job?

Though you're right, tuition is absurd for most people.
 
2014-03-12 01:24:03 PM
If she wants to get a train run on her, house five hoagies at once or yank off a donkey and post it on the internet for money more power to her.   Your looks are only "porn-worthy" for a few years.  Might as well make some bucks off of them before you have to get a real job.

Besides, once everybody is doing it then it won't be looked down on.  Like how everybody who did cocaine in the 80s is totally cool with their kids doing it now.

Yeah I feel bad for what students have to pay today and I thought it was bad when I went to school.

Cant wait til my GF comes back at teh end of the month so we can "debase" each other.

Lots of pearl clutching, but what strikes me is that Knox or whatever the porn star's name is said that working as a waitress was more debasing and humiliating than porn, which has been "empowering". Sounds about right.

How about we write some opinion pieces about that?
 
2014-03-12 01:27:16 PM
Even more heartbreaking is listening to Knox's still little-girlish voice describing how she'll tell her parents. "I don't want to," she told the Duke Chronicle last month, in the whiny tone of a child told to go to bed. "I mean, I was thinking I might just tell my mom, 'Mom, I do modeling where I take my clothes off.' I might not tell her the whole sex part."

I hate to tell you, she was probably molested. Whatever age she sounds is how far back you should investigate to figure out who may have done it. Emotionally stunted at that age. Guarantee.

I'm pretty sure the editor removed this from TFA:

2014-03-12 01:28:28 PM
I like the part where she points out that the sad, misled young lady's father is reported to be an Army doctor just back from Afghanistan.

Just to hit things home for us. This. Girl's. Father. Is. A. Hero.
If a terrible tragedy like this can happen to this family, it can happen to absolutely anyone.

I bet her father is a "get a job" type who told her she needs to work while in college. The "I worked hard an you will too" type.

Nice way to work that out. She's certainly making money.

Nudity is what makes things debasing.  You know To lower in character, quality, or value; degrade.  Somehow sex hurts her "character".

"What does she tell her mom & dad?"

How about "Mom & Dad, I'm paying my own way through school and neither you nor I will owe a thing after I graduate"?

Would I want it for my own daughters? Hell no. But I understand it. And if it were an option for me as a poor student whose parents couldn't afford to help out I'd have done the same thing.

So, she likes doing porn. Good for her.

People can't stand that some women like sex -- a lot.  Stoya and Belladonna would also tell you they love doing porn, as would many others.

I literally shoveled shiat one summer. I'd do that again over getting throat farked in front of the public. What is debasing about waiting tables?

It just strikes me as what every hooker has told themselves at some point. Those working girls are suckers, look at all of this money I make. This is empowering.

I should qualify all of this by saying I think she should be completely free of harassment for her choices. I just find her arguments less than compelling.

To each their own - I'd rather do porn than wait tables. Getting paid to have sex... I can think of far worse options.

Dear Lord,

Save our debauched culture from raging hot, intelligent 20-something college women that reject their daddy's money in favor of working hard & paying their own way through school and life while building a solid foundation for themselves.

Prayed nobody ever.

Seriously, if it were a guy he'd be praised for his ungodly luck, independence, and personal determination at making it on his own.

Minor was critical of Miriam for saying her parents had stopped paying her tuition.

So I was incorrect in that it was a family friend that said this, but still, look at how asshole you are.
