Miriam Weeks, Duke college freshman porn actress. The pinnacle of feminism?

Has Miriam Weeks championed the causes of the feminist movement or brought them back to the stone ages?

Has Miriam Weeks the Duke College freshman adult actress liberated women or thrown them back in the stone ages?

So does pursuing a career as an adult actress meet the standard of being a progressive women? Especially if one is aspiring to be a well heeled woman, steeped in cultural studies, a feminist agenda, asserting her independence and not being impinged on male dominance.

The answer of course depends on whom you ask. Nevertheless what we can say is that the outing of adult actress, Duke college freshman adult actress, Belle Knox, aka Miriam Weeks in real life has certainly thrown a spanner in the works of what counts for an assertive enlightened woman.

Outed Duke College freshman insists she’s proud to be a porn star.

In explaining why she chose to pursue the adult business, Belle Knox tells for her the choice was either serving hamburgers at minimum wages plus tips or that of being in front of the camera pursuing something that brought her joy.

So where as women have traditionally resorted to sex to get by, Belle Knox has now told she has resorted to the adult business to avoid having to sell hamburgers. Hardly the most endorsing facet of progressive women’s studies. After all it’s one thing to assert ones independence but another when one chooses to sell their sexuality for money. Not that should be frowned on, but let’s call a spade a spade, this is a slap for the progressive woman who is choosing to assert herself devoid of her appearance and sexuality.

Nevertheless Belle Knox has used the clever argument to assert that she has indeed brought women’s agenda much further ahead by owning her body and side stepping the male patriarchy she seeks to stand up. Never mind the adult industry is the very embodiment of the male patriarchy. Females act and serve men’s pleasure before their own.

Told the actress via xojane: ‘It terrifies us to even fathom that a woman could take ownership of her body. We deem to keep women in a place where they are subjected to male sexuality. We seek to rob them of their choice and of their autonomy. We want to oppress them and keep them dependent on the patriarchy. A woman who transgresses the norm and takes ownership of her body — because that’s exactly what porn is, no matter how rough the sex is — ostensibly poses a threat to the deeply ingrained gender norms that polarize our society.”

I’d buy this argument if it pertained to any other industry except to the sex industry. Otherwise the intention is well placed, the integrity missing entirely. Then again whom am I (as a male)  or you for the reader for that matter to tell any woman how she chooses to define her femininity and sexuality? If it’s the adult business so be it.

What do you think? Can women have it both ways? Bemoan the male patriarchal culture one seeks to eschew whilst all the while stroking herself in front of  the camera cause the price is right? Isn’t that the ultimate sell out?

    She’s an imbecile, like every single feminist on the face of the planet. Men are better than women, and the history of science, technology and the arts proves this.

    Women should go back to being exclusively mothers and nurturers, as nature intended, Society would be better for it.

  • Liz

    Women can not have it both ways. The ONLY reason Ms. Weeks is rolling out the feminist card is because she was outed against her wishes and is now doing major damage control. If she was proud of this side job, she wouldnt have kept it under wraps from her classmates, her friends or her parents for the entire fall semester. The only reason she has come out publicly to claim porn is acceptable is because she was caught, plain and simple. Has the frat classmate not told his frat brothers her real identity, none of this feminist crap would see the light of day.

  • Anthony

    Feminist my arse. A feminist would say she is catering to a male dominated industry…renting her body and selling her dignity for a male audience. That’s everything feminism stands AGAINST. The ONLY ‘feminism’ I see here is the anger of a woman having to deal with the consequences of getting caught as a whore or slut.

  • HubbaHubba

    I support her. So can you please guide me to where I can watch her sucking d*ck and getting f*cked in the *ss. Thank you.

    Oh you’re right on, boobs are for suckling babies ONLY — Hands off
    vaginas are for conceiving babies and birthing them, sex for the purpose of conceiving ONLY. Finally! a man who gets that I don’t want SEX for SEX sake, after all I have to save my energy for mothering and scrubbing the kitchen floor.

    > “whom am I (as a male) or you for the reader for that matter to tell any woman how she chooses to define her femininity and sexuality? ”

    ‘Cuz women NEVER mock or demonize male sexuality, right? Sharon Osbourne didn’t laugh herself silly when a penis was amputated, her all-female audience joining in the merriment…right?

    Females call guys “creepy” and “supporters of rape culture.”

    On the other hand, when do bold-fierce-feisty women make first-moves to let guys know their interested in them and explicitly state the kind and duration of carnality they favor?

    Who says females never-ever-EVAH judge men’s approaches, intentions, etc.?
