“Make no mistake, Gallop is not the typical anti-porn crusader; in fact, she’s not anti-porn at all. She’ll be the first to tell you that she watches it regularly herself. Her issue is that most mainstream porn only presents one perspective, largely because the porn industry is primarily run by straight cisgendered men for straight cisgendered men.
Folks in both feminist and queer spaces have been working toward changing the dominant narrative in porn for over thirty years now, and the movement to discuss porn without resorting to blanket censorship has been gaining more publicity and traction. They have become their own little niches, bringing along all the bodies, genders, and orientations to the porn party. The Feminist Porn Book came out in February of this year, and in conjunction with the Feminist Porn Awards, the first annual Feminist Porn Conference took place in April of 2013.”
