About

I guess it’s about time I put a little information about myself to explain the context of this blog a bit. I’m a first year Fine Art student at a UK university, getting rapidly sick of Britain’s state of censorship, and having my views trampled all over because I don’t conform to feminist views that pornography, and the media as a whole, is degrading and harmful to women. I passionately believe in freedom of expression, and think that this fundamental right should trump peoples’ (potential) offence. Just as I believe all media has worth and something to teach us, I think that art should never have to censor itself in order to please mainstream ideals, and should be free to comment on contemporary issues. At university, students with emerging views should not be told that they are stupid, or threatened by police investigations for discussing ideas relevant to our social and political climate.

If I was to define myself as a feminist, it would have to be a sex-positive, anti-censorship feminist, but don’t see much value in this sort of labelling, as within these umbrella terms are all sorts of different views that I may or may not agree with, and I would prefer to form my own opinion rather than try to define myself by a string of words, simply used to try to prove that other people agree with me. I am an avid opponent of the Extreme Pornography Act, as I believe it contravenes human rights law, and was passed with no public awareness. I aim to use the medium of fine art to draw attention to an alternative view of pornography and the media, and how this effects gender roles, public perception and behaviour. Everything has to start somewhere, and while I may not be making a huge impact, in the months I’ve had this blog, I’ve had around 8,000 views, so that gives me some hope that people are interested in what I have to say.

As people are forever telling me, I’m never going to change the world, but I think it’s enough to just get people to consider the issues and form an opinion not solely based on the rantings and ravings of pro-censorship feminism, the government, Media Watch and the Daily Mail.

Agree a lot with your approach.

you have a blog full of beautiful thoughts but there are no sex-related problems in UK except one which is the absence of sexuality

And you are going to change the world. You are already doing this. Just don’t forget that media is not teaching us anything – they just want to control us – and they are quite succeeding in this.
