Nazis, Yes; Tiddies, No: Gab launches “cultural revolution” against porn and lust

Typical porn addict

By David Futrelle

Andrew Torba, who runs the Nazi-friendly “free speech” site Gab, is not exactly a big fan of porn. He banned porn from his platform back in July and regularly inveighs against “coomers” — chanspeak for porn addicts — on his much larger competitor Twitter.

But now he’s taking his anti-porn crusade to a new level. In a series of tweets over the past few days he called for a “cultural revolution against porn” and “unity against lust” as well as stringent new governmental restrictions on porn sites.

He threw in a little antisemitism to sweeten the deal:

https://twitter.com/getongab/status/1203513386044215297

He also hopes that all the semen conserved by penis-havers who give up porn could be repurposed to produce more white — sorry, Western — babies

https://twitter.com/getongab/status/1201162651407130624

Torba clearly thinks that jumping on board the NoFap(TM) train will bring his platform more traffic, and has said as much in a number of tweets, boasting that Gab has picked up more than 100,000 new users since the porn ban in July — including 4000 over the weekend.

Of course, there’s no way of knowing how much of this has anything to do with Torba’s stance on porn. And the initial social media reaction to Torba’s newly expanded anti-porn crusade has been, well, just a teensy bit negative amongst those who otherwise might be some of Gab’s biggest defenders.

You're either completely for censorship or against all censorship. There is no pick and choosing. Make a choice and stop touting "freedom" if you're going to mislead the public. You can ban porn, just stop shrieking about others enjoying it. It's childish.

He’s also lost the support of some far-right YouTubers, among them the frequently shirtless Styxhexenhammer666 and video game ranter The Quaterting, who has removed himself from Gab.

Still, Torba has his defenders.

these youtubers were obviously informed by their (((masters))) to defend and spread degeneracy, which merely part of the broader plan for (((their))) NWO

So it’s entirely possible that Torba’s escalated antiporn crusade could work to his benefit, garnering Gab many thousands of new users from NoFap world even as it alienates some fans and potential fans, and helps to fuel a cultural civil war between trad-right puritans and what game developer Rami Baker calls “The Anime Tiddie Right.”

As far as I’m concerned, anything that gets these idiots mad at each other is a blessing. So you go, Gab.

So I guess they would think I’m the worst of the worst and probably call me live action porn or something. Not performance art. This is the kind of sexist thinking that is behind slut shaming which I’ve had enough of in my life. Enough.

I noticed that Gab is also catering to another new user base that happens to be anti porn: TERFs. A few months ago, M. K. Fain, a well-known TERF blogger started an offshoot of Gab called Spinster for the TERFs that are getting banned from Twitter. As you might expect, they very quickly allied with the Nazis at Gab and seem to be close friends now.
Curious if this had anything to do with Fain and friends.

This is PRECISELY among the reasons why I’ve been watching porn, to spite Catholics, Nazis and other misogynists, since they don’t actually care about women affected in porn, more that it’s “degenerate”. Unfortunately, I feel like that watching porn is causing me some different problems, which I don’t feel comfortable discussing; I’ve had to stop as a result. I’m currently seeing a therapist for this.

1. “A cultural revolution against porn”? Torba’s really trying to prove the horseshoe theory, isn’t he?

2. On a side note:

Guns and knives protect families.

…until a kid finds his father’s gun and start playing with it. Or decides to show it to his friends. Or the father gets depressed and blows himself and his family away. Or his wife mistakes him for an intruder and shoots him. Or…

I think if people don’t find porn degenerate and don’t care about the women in porn, they probably hate how it exploits men especially financially. Sure, porn is generally free, but I guess some pay for certain services like live adult chat and premium content.

So do TERFs hate porn because they just hate men and want men to be unhappy, or do they hate sex itself?

Because I never see TERFs advocating for the health and safety of porn actresses, or supporting woman-owned porn studios, or suggesting that we address harmful tropes that are commonly represented in porn. Nothing that would actually address the actual problems that porn can cause for women.

I have to wonder why they call it porn addiction when it doesn’t fit a single criterion for addiction as described by the DSM-V. As far as I can tell, the so-called addicts are.just people who feel guilty about having a libido greater than what society says is normal…or those who simply would rather think with their dicks than with their heads. That’s not addiction, that’s just stupidity.

Extreme cases do meet the criteria of addiction. Just like a video game addiction. The addict will put off sleep, food, water, and go outside the acceptable realms for viewing pornography until it becomes all they want to do is watch pornography. And by acceptable norms I mean at things like work, funerals, baby showers, church. Is this rare? yes just like people dying from gaming is rare but it does happen. And you forget one of those criteria is that it causes distress or impairment in one’s life.

Does the average person have a sever porn addiction? no probably not. But porn causes problems in intimacy, sexual arousal, it gives a lot of young people unrealistic and unhealthy ideas about sex.

Porn can also help with a lot of things. For example it can help rape survivors get comfortable with the idea of sexual attraction and the idea of sexual acts.

A lot of Catholics watch porn unapologetically and without shame Rv97. Myself and my husband being two of them. There are also queer Catholics (myself). Catholics that have prematernal sex (ever young catholic not in a relationship I’ve ever met), Kinky Catholics, Feminist Catholics, and ever other type of catholic you can think of. It’s almost like Catholics are people and not equal to misogynist just because their Catholics. Though the idea of jerking off while saying “yeah take that Christianity” is disturbing to say the least. maybe get out a bit more and breath.

Porn destroys them

Maybe I’m an abberation, but I’m pretty sure I would much, much rather stumble across a hidden stash of my (hypothetical) spouse’s porn than a concealed stockpile of knives and guns.

The former would be perhaps a little embarrassing. The latter would indicate that I needed to get out right now immediately and never ever come back.

I guess most TERFS also qualify as SWERFS (sex worker exclusionary). I don’t know if the Venn diagram is just a circle but I’ve yet to see one who isn’t the other. Though they are definitely separate problems.

Because I never see TERFs advocating for the health and safety of porn actresses, or supporting woman-owned porn studios, or suggesting that we address harmful tropes that are commonly represented in porn. Nothing that would actually address the actual problems that porn can cause for women.

I think the main reason TERFs oppose porn is because they, as others have mentioned, are also SWERFs and opposed to all sex work. They pretend to care about the women involved, but really they don’t. Instead, they go around being extremely patronizing and saying that the actresses can’t consent or are always suffering, and when some porn actress comes forward to say she likes her job they just attack her and say she’s brainwashed or traumatized. They have no respect for women’s own choices.

I’m pretty sure they know that decriminalization would make sex work safer, but they don’t want it to be safer. Like the radical right that they are very similar to, they want to hurt the people involved to “punish” them.

Oh, and they like to blame trans* women for porn. Because in a TERF’s mind, everything is the fault of trans* women.
There’s also a bit of antisemitism in a lot of TERFs, as a significant number blame trans* people on a Jewish conspiracy.

@Anonymous
There’s not a tremendous amount of research, but what we know about porn addiction suggests that the feeling of being addicted to porn is much more common in highly religious individuals who have guilt. There is some dispute over whether it qualifies as addiction, while porn can harm someone’s life it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s an addiction by the DSM criteria.

That is great to hear, although sadly, the stance of the Vatican and other Catholic institutions are still firm – I remember at least in my teen years seeing a pamphlet in Polish that was against pornography, in a Catholic church located near the heart of a progressive town I live in.

I feel vaguely like that some Catholics, specifically younger ones born from at least the 90s, may be more tolerant of LGBT individuals, but I am still doubtful regarding their stances regarding abortion and extramarital sex. I don’t know many, if any people, especially of my own age and race offline who has a sexually active life even if it involves only themselves, and their beliefs regarding abortion and gender.

I have been more and more involved with one or two LGBT-friendly churches, although I’d imagine it’s uncouth for me to try and get involved with people’s sex lives there, whether they are engaged with it or not. Many attendees of this church I’ve seen so far in the evening services are white so it does make me feel a little bit hopeless in that regard – thankfully they are a progressive church that tries to fight racism.

I am someone who has in the past wished I were white on a few occasions, because in my experience, I’ve pretty much seen only white people who are socially liberal, and I would feel free to be “degenerate” from being white. This is where my concern comes from in an earlier comment. It may also make me less easily exploited from a pyramid scheme my parents are involved with that targets one race, which is a pertinent issue for me that’s unrelated to the thread topic.

CN: Discussion of partner violence and murder methodology

The whole guns and knives protecting families assertion is just so incredibly wrong.

3 women a day are murdered by current and former partners.

I don’t have statistics on the methodology in front of me, but I have to imagine a lot of those murders involve shooting or stabbing as those are two of the easier methods.

Not to mention all the numerous times women survive being shot or stabbed by a partner.

I’d be much more unsettled by a weapon stash than a porn stash. Unless the porn was all rape or snuff.

To my knowledge such a thing as “severe porn addiction” would be better classified as an impulse control disorder, much like pyromania and compulsive gambling. There’s no mechanism for tolerance (more and more is needed for the same initial effect- if anything the research suggests the opposite happens) or withdrawal (deprivation has severe physiological and psychological effects) involved, and those are the key parts of any addiction as psychology understands it.

@Nagalfar
That’s what I mean, the “addiction” is just subjective feelings of guilt over what would be just a perfectly normal sex drive.

I read somewhere (I forget the source) that if you own a gun, it is twice as likely that someone will use it against you than that you will use it in self defense. Then there’s how the presence of a gun increases suicide rates (which MRAs complain about endlessly but glorify).
Guns will not protect your family. They are far more likely to destroy it, whether by your hand or someone else’s.

I’ve had something that felt like video game addiction, but it was really a coping strategy. I was avoiding other things in my life, and I was using video games to use up the time that would otherwise be available for the things I was avoiding. Also, if I stopped myself from playing, my mind would go to all sorts of anxious thoughts, and I craved distraction from those thoughts.

The reason I think it wasn’t an addiction is that I could fairly easily divert it into other distractions, such as Netflix binges.

I am for age verification myself

Class privilege alert. I’ve yet to see any “age verification” system that didn’t require using a credit card. The only alternative I can envision would require instead government-issued ID, and then all your viewing habits could be tracked. So I don’t see any practical way to enforce age verification without either eliminating free and freemium offerings, leaving only pay, or else completely obliterating privacy in an area where people tend to want extra privacy.

It’s worse than that, of course, as it would also require geoblocking web censorship to deny access by citizens in your country to sites hosted in every country that didn’t enforce age verification. And blocking Tor and Bittorrent. And …

Ultimately it would either leak like a sieve or balkanize the net while also adding even more to our surveillance woes. And who’d pay for all of this? Most likely the viewers, through some sort of sex tax.

No thanks. I like my internet with still some of its original free and uncommercialized niches intact, rather than every last byte of it locked down, surveilled, and paywalled …

The way age verification was envisioned in the UK (I’m not sure to what extent it’s been implemented) was that you could buy an age-certification token in convenience stores, similar to how you can buy prepay SIMs or Google Play credits.

The store would check your age but wouldn’t (in theory) keep any record of whose ID was used to buy which token.

I have no idea how they’d stop people from reselling their tokens to minors, though.

Yeeeesh, they really think “coomers” will catch on. YouTuber Gwen_No_Fear documented a Paul Joseph Watson video where he repeated the word over and over again in the cringiest possible fashion. Like Gwen said, the sexual neuroses of PJW could be expanded into a case study all its own.

Just to follow-on from what WWTH, Anonymous and Naglfar have mentioned, the shame component isn’t one I quite understand outside of a religious framework. Shame seems to be the only rationale I have for why of all the reasons for their perceptions of failure they zero in on sexual imagery. Just speaking for myself, I know my vices. I know what keeps me from the things I really want to do, and the half-hour I spend a day with adult material ranks pretty low on the list of obstacles. Higher on my list is “work” (the big one) and “video games” (a close second). With a generous dollop of imposter syndrome.

Obviously, these guys believe that their contentment with adult material precludes their ability to obtain the “nuclear family” that our various societies have indicated is the “norm.” As opposed to, say, the price of housing. Or food. The costs are what’s keeping the precious “Western” birth rates low, not the occasional stroking habit.

Or until the kid, having spent too much time on Gab, decides that it’s time to “take action” against the “cultural Marxists” in his cafeteria.

Anyway, just as a purely non-scientific experiment, I looked up the Alexa data for Pornhub and some other porn sites. “No Nut November” seems to have had next to no impact on their traffic, at least if their Alexa rankings are anything to go by. There was a drop-off for many of them in September, but something tells me it’s seasonal (i.e. horny teenagers going back to school and having less time to watch porn). In other words, these guys think they’re a lot more important than they actually are, which is a bunch of dweebs on the internet.

For me, it would depend on what kind of gun/knife stash it is before I decide it’s a dealbreaker. Like, if the other person likes to collect historical firearms and knives from the last three centuries, and likes to keep them in good working order for fun, that would be one thing. Or if they like target shooting (skeets and clay pigeons and things like that), that would also be a good reason to keep a stash around.

But if they’re keeping a stash around to fend off hoards of thieves and thugs, or preparing for doomsday (that’s always just around the corner), then that miiight be a sign to get out of there. Because that’s a dangerous reason to horde guns in your house, at least in my opinion. YMMV.

A lot of these people’s plans are contingent on people actually caring about them. MGTOW’s plan, for example, is based on the idea that anyone else gives a fuck. Or the idea that somehow these men “going their own way” (by which I mean moaning about women on the internet) will cause women to immediately change course and/or society will collapse. I don’t think either of those will happen. Similarly, No Nut November probably has little to no effect on the porn industry.

I was recently involved in a lengthy, girthy Reddit thread about the deadly peril of online p0rn. The man who posted it was lamenting how he can no longer ‘perform’ sexually due to his p0rn addiction. He argued that this was a totally real problem, dudes and gals, and why why WHY is nobody talking about it?! There were a number of commenters supporting him and recommending Fight the New Drug, NoFap, the semen retention cults, and other promotes of erotic constipation.

Of course, he insisted that he’s a leftist atheist who doesn’t have a problem with masturbation, he just wants to save other men from his dreadful fate. What a noble guy.

I didn’t come to my position on protection of minors on the Internet through pearl – clutching either though, but via lived experience.

While Kevinsson was still a minor, he was one of several who were sent inappropriate social media communications by one of their former teachers, as a result of which, out of the blue, we were on the receiving end of a pants – wettingly alarming visit from a copper and a social worker.

Doesn’t surprise me. The whole point of Spinster seems to be as a home for TERFs who got banned from Twitter or had to turn down their hate to avoid getting banned.

The man who posted it was lamenting how he can no longer ‘perform’ sexually due to his p0rn addiction.

I can see a couple possible causes for this. One is desensitization by repeated masturbation aka the “death grip syndrome,” the other is unrealistic standards (from watching too much porn he can only get it up for people with impossible proportions or doing unusual acts). Either way, that’s not necessarily the fault of porn and does not make porn evil.

He argued that this was a totally real problem, dudes and gals, and why why WHY is nobody talking about it?! There were a number of commenters supporting him and recommending Fight the New Drug, NoFap, the semen retention cults, and other promotes of erotic constipation.

Fight the New Drug AFAICT is a crypto-Mormon recruiting program with pseudoscience not that different from semen retention, just with a more publicly accessible façade.

Of course, he insisted that he’s a leftist atheist who doesn’t have a problem with masturbation, he just wants to save other men from his dreadful fate. What a noble guy.

Of course it is. For crying out loud, the Soviet Union couldn’t manage the equivalent, and back then stuff had to be passed around on bootleg cassettes or home-pressed vinyl records. The idea that such a thing could be seriously maintained when everyone’s walking about with a pocket computer stuffed with communications gear is absurd. I mean, yes, there’s lits of censorship, but people who actively want to know the score certainly can.

Which has got what to do with online age verification, prithee? That’s like saying that preadults ought not be allowed into the mall to hang out with their friends, as we did in the olden days, because some creeper once approached someone there. Or indeed, on like suggesting that women ought not to go out at night, lest they should be attacked.
