So in con law II this morning we were discussing obscenity laws, and moved on to feminist anti-pornography laws inspired by the works of Andrea Dworkin and Catharine MacKinnon. I kept waiting for the discussion to devolve into "dworkin's fucking insane," which is what I'm used to, and it didn't! We just soberly assessed the anti-violence and anti-degradation rationale behind the Dworkin-MacKinnon laws, compared it to the anti-violence rationale used to justify the Miller test for obscenity, and questioned why there was a difference in doctrine.

Sometimes my colleagues aren't raging, terrible sexists, like they were when we discussed rape in criminal law! Yay!

Seriously, the day we talked about rape in crim law, I hated my classmates so much for their victim-blaming shit. It was nice that nobody beat up on strawman-dworkin today.

HOLY SHIT IT'S YOU.

ON LJ.

And just to make up for your class, I'd just like to say that Andrea Dworkin IS fucking insane.
