If she cannot/does not take dominatrix into account, then her philosophy is inconsistent. To fully explain this article and pornography would require a lengthy paper that exceeds the requirements and purpose of this précis. I will end my paper by saying that I believe everyone has a right to free speech and equality, and I appreciate the article for what it was worth, but I do not feel it is justifiable or relevant to society. She bases her entire argument on an improvable correlation of pornography and sexual discrimination. Not to mention the fact that women also buy pornography.

In this way, Foucault correctly claims that disciplinary power fashions individuals who voluntarily subject themselves to self-surveillance. When people fear that their sexual behaviors might be what the true discourse considers to be abnormal, they regulate their own bodies in order to conform. Therefore, the power of true discourses is omnipresent as it shapes human existence and permeates even the most private aspect of individual lives and ultimately impacts society as a whole.
Sex and relationships can be complicated and the circumstances can vary in different relationships, therefore every single relationship cannot be approached with the same rule. Natural law is too strict and fixed to judge sex and relationships. Perhaps a more relative ethic, such as Situation Ethics would be a better fit, as it encourages that we act out of love, which seems extremely appropriate when tackling sex and
In the name of a biological and historical urgency, it justified the racisms of the state, which at the time were on the horizon. It grounded them in “truth." (Foucault, 1990, p. 54) Sexuality gained a connection to the truth. This results into the idea that sexuality is a part of identity and a key aspect in understating who we are individual. And all of this is only possible due to the discourse of sexuality, which is determined by social culture and time.

The deconstruction of binary oppositions grants people acceptance for their unfixed place within a spectrum, as demonstrated through the indefinable nature of each character’s sexuality. Queer theory denies categorical placement as a tool to adhere individuals to oppressive structures, insisting that true freedom is found in self-informed notions of what it means to be a complex range of male, female, gay, and straight, rather than those imposed. The rejection of heteronormative expectations creates an equal playing field, tearing down the social hierarchy of patriarchal ideals. As shown in Angels’ version of San Francisco, this is prophetic of ruin and social destruction to some, and a ray of hope to others.
The theory which may be questioned most by any Freethinker, is the theory of the modern morality. By this, I mean the theory of monogamy, that a person ought to only have one sexual partner at one time. But this theory is more than just that. Not only is it a one-sexual-partner ideal, but it covers other ideas. Those who are promiscuous with their bodies are treated as heartless and brutal.
Finally, it makes women look inferior and therefore, conditions the people who are watching porn to treat women the same way as being shown. The male-dominated porn has suppressed women’s viewpoints on the issue. Mill, on the other hand, does not believe porn should be censored. He advocates freedom of speech, and believes that the government along with society should not overpower or control the actions and opinions of individuals who are not directly harming other people. As said by him, “[T]he only purpose for which power can be rightfully exercised over any member of a civilize... ... middle of paper ... ...raising our voices and using freedom of speech will make more of a difference.
However, due to conservative traditional and religious beliefs, the integration of homosexuals in society is often met with resistance. It can therefore be said that societal conservative tendencies have led to the intolerance of homosexuality therefore causing the inequality of LGBT men and women. In order to challenge normative constructions on sexuality one must first acknowledge that discrimination is still evident and continues to be a reason behind socio-political exclusion. The operations behind social policies cause oppression and isolation, and only re-thinking our approach in delivering new policies can hopefully one day meet the needs for a diverse lifestyle or in the words of Macklemore “It's human rights for everybody, there is no difference!”
Vannoy brings several arguments to light that can affect adultery and marriage. According to Peter Koestenbaum, authentic Decision is the minimum external influences, deliberate not unconscious, made with true knowledge of kind of person one uniquely is. (Koestenbaum, 1974) Vannoy believes in certain circumstances sex without love can be enjoyable. The committed marriage in his opinion lacks spontaneity and excitement. The societal gates of marriage forces us as humans to be truly
