See the Clip: Professor Noam Chomsky Chomps on Female Porn Performers

Trawling YouTube’s daily list of top “activism” videos, I found this wonderful, horrible clip of Noam Chomsky pontificating on the evils of pornography. Chomsky first defends himself against the charge that he himself is complicit in promoting pornography because, back in 2004, he was interviewed by Hustler magazine. But, he tells his interrogator, he “had never heard of The Hustler” until someone told him “what The Hustler was.” Chomsky, a prolific emailer, apparently didn’t know that The Google could have provided him with much information on The Hustler and its filthy contents.

Pornography, says the sage of MIT, is “disgraceful,” “a humiliation and degradation of women.” Does it matter, the interviewer wonders, that most porn performers “choose to do the job and get paid?” Chomsky offers this labored analogy in response: “The fact that women agreed to it and are paid is about as convincing as the fact that we should be in favor of sweatshops in China where woman are locked into the factory and work fifteen hours a day and then the factory burns down and they all die.

They were paid and they consented, but it doesn’t make me in favor of it.” And for all of you porn consumers out there, Chomsky wants you to know that if you get “pleasure out of the humiliation of women [you] have a problem.” So how do we improve the lot of porn performers? By banning “the degradation of woman” and “eliminating the conditions in which woman cannot get decent jobs; not permit abusive and destructive behavior.”
