Can you be against porn as a feminist?

This is not asking if someone can like or dislike porn on a personal belief.

The question is, can you be against porn, by saying it is against being a feminist?

The principle ideology of being a feminist (I would suggest) is that you have a belief in equality of both sexes.

One would also presume that the logic of feminists would be not to tell another women what to think or do with her body and not to condone her sexuality, but indeed support it.

As such, one would presume that rather than tell other women that they should not (1) be in porn, (2) make porn, and (3) watch porn (or reading books such as 50 shades of grey), and (4) condone their sexuality (such as telling women that being in bdsm is wrong), that feminists would in fact support other women.

One would also presume that if you talk about the belief you feel women are harmed in porn (no evidence of this), a feminist would also state they are equally considered about the welfare of men.

The argument Gail Dines puts forward, seems to suggest that she believes she (as the great white left wing middle class lady) has the right to tell other women what to do, think and express themselves in there sexuality.

Indeed, my argument is not saying you should or should not like porn. The argument is that should you state it is against whatever form of feminist belief you have, when it is in truth, simply because you do not like porn. It is no difference to someone who is religious and has a hang up over sex. Rather than admit that he or she has a problem with sex, they claim it is against their religious beliefs as a way of covering up there sexual problems.

Telling other women what how they should be sexual, reminds me of an article in a book I read as a child. It was written by a lesbian, who stated that if a lesbian used a dildo, then she was not a real lesbian, as it was like putting a penis inside herself.

But to say your a feminist and then stating what other women should do and not do, is no different to someone claiming they are vegan but they eat mean two days a week.

To me the logical feminist statement would read something like this:

I may or may not like porn. However if I like or do not like porn is my own personal feelings.

While I may or may not like porn, as a feminist I should support other women (and men) in an equal way, and as such if a man or woman chooses to be in porn, make porn or watch porn, as a feminist one must support the fact they have made these choices.

While it is clear, many left wing, middle class persons, feel a huge need to tell working class people what to do and what is best for them. It is (I would suggest) prejudiced (being racist towards a different social class) to consider yourself superior to the working class, by believing you have the right to tell them what they can and cannot do.

But for one woman to tell another women, what she can do with her body and her sexuality, clearly cannot be the actions of a feminist.

If you believe in equality, then you cannot pick and choose what parts you feel comfortable with, and dismiss those parts you do not like. As that is not equality. In the same way, if you believe in free speech, you accept that people you disagree with, should still have the right to speak, as if not, you do not have free speech.
