This is the left, everything anybody says is regarded with suspicion, even
when it appear to make sense. I think I know this since I was like 5 years
And I am not bluffing. Am a lesser known writer and performance art producer
in Puerto Rico. (Although its all in Spanish). One of the performances I
produced included several televisions showing a gay hardcore locker room
fetish gangbang movie. I wasn't the director or writer, but her idea was to
both shock bourgeoise feminists, and jab at post-feminism's objective denial
of patriarchy. And also poke fun at all the LatAm theater cliches, like
umbrellas, fire, suitcases, and shoes. And I also acted in the performance.
If you read spanish, there is a small, somewhat dated, archive of my stuff,

Actually, there are bazillions of pro-socialist Hollywood films.
There is even one by Keanu Reeves, "Johnny Mnemonic", based on the short
story by William Gibson. It features Henry Rollins as a resistance doctor
and Ice T as a latter day Che Guevara. The movie is not that great, but not
BTW, did Nina Hartley sign any of the anti-war petitions? UP&J? ANSWER?
NION? I mean, Susan Sarandon was a big wig in pushing NION up to the front,
and her career has suffered as a result.
Or Martin Sheen who has gotten arrested several times, and done some jail,
for opposing the school of the Americas. And on and on...
Has Nina done anything like that? I am honest, I have no idea either way.

Yes, and Nina's whole work is trying to say that porn is a happy institution
tainted by a few bad apples, such as unsafe sex producers and Traci Lords.
You continue to deny this, but the record is there.
I believe that under capitalism, everything is unhappy. That is why I am a
communist and not a liberal.
