I think porn serves a purpose. I think it’ll always serve a purpose. You can find examples of erotic art spanning all of human history, and I don’t see that stopping anytime soon, so women need to be part of the process of making it. We need to be represented, not as objects or props, but as active participants, producers, and consumers worth creating for. We need to take charge and express our own desires.
Any time you go long enough without input from women, you’re creating a climate for misogyny to thrive. Very little porn is made with women in mind. A lot of porn is incredibly misogynistic, but porn is not inherently misogynistic. Porn can be incredibly feminist. It’s the same as any other form of media. Superhero comics have been criticized for misogyny, and are often created with men as the target audience, but that doesn’t mean comics are inherently bad or only for men. The comics industry gets better the closer we get to balancing the gender ratio of the people creating it. The porn industry has a long way to go, but it can get better just like anything else.
The success of women-driven projects like Smut Peddler and Filthy Figments attest to this, that women are interested in smut. We’re eager consumers who aren’t often catered to, we’re talented creators with a lot to say. Let’s lose the guilt and shame and silence. Long live ladyporn!
And a quick addition for anyone who plans to hate on this post- this would be female input in all pornographic mediums! Imagine a heterosexual porno directed by a woman. I feel this must be said because there will be a small minority who will claim about this because their tiny little minds will automatically assume that this means women will make lesbian porn!
Realistic Historical Sword Fighting
Shoutout to the fuckwits who think longswords were all about random hacking and slashing.
Actually the Medieval long sword, being a one-handed blade, would usually be in conjunction with a shield, which is a style that relies more heavily on building momentum to blocking and hacking, relying on force to drive the blade through the foe. What’s in these gifs is a fighting style for the two-handed sword (such as claymores or the Bidenhänder style of blade) and hand and a half (or bastard) sword. Both of these are generally termed in the Medieval or Renaissance period as “Long Swords”, but more recognized now by the term Great Sword, that was invented for the style in 15th century fencing manuals.
If you’re interested in looking into this further, Old Swordplay: Techniques of the Great Masters by Alfred Hutton is a short, but excellent read. It’s written by a Victorian, but a military scholar familiar with the older 15th and 14th fencing restructuring and provides excellent diagrams from older fencing manuals to illustrate the more archaic styles.
rerebloging because this is good info.
