So now there exists in a once-shadowy business the opportunity to discuss something with the faith that the whole structure won’t be pulled down.
In not describing the physical attributes or motivations of the players on the other side, Weis—and I’ll throw a lasso around the rest of the mainstream media here, too—implicitly sets up an Us v. Them scenario.
…like the Iraq invasion hinging on the Bush Administration’s lie that Saddam Hussein had Weapons of Mass Destruction, the AHF’s WMDs was home-grown AIDS in Porn Valley.
“Some of these apple-picking girls fuck like the Wendigo is after them,” says Allie Haze. “They’re not scared of death.”
Porn Valley is turning to many of the same people who voted for Measure B—hoodwinked porn watchers—to raise money to overturn it on a special Tax Day Pornathon.
Fear-based and founded on a high-concept lie (that the porn industry both encourages STDs and fails to treat them), the well-funded Yes on Measure B campaign passed—in my opinion—based solely on voter ignorance.
My belief is that voters, had they actually thought about the real effects of the law (and the lack of harm defeating it represented), would not have passed it. Indeed, major L.A. media outlets—including the L.A. Times—urged voters to reject Measure B.
I think the adult industry needs fixing, but Measure B won’t do it.
