Antiporn Agendas: Feminism, Internet Filtering, and Religious StrategiesNew Views on Pornography: Sexuality, Politics, and the Law (2015)
This chapter looks specifically at how the evolving agenda of the feminist antiporn organization Stop Porn Culture (SPC) has helped enable government-mandated Internet filtering along with other attempts to quarantine adult content online. It also considers how some conservative churches have, in addition to filtering, turned toward sex-positive language as a religious strategy for opposing pornography. Moreover, in light of this recent confluence of events, it now seems an opportune time to revisit and update “Porn and Me(n),”1 my analysis of the 2007 national antipornography conference held at Wheelock College—an event that drew in both feminists and religious conservatives alike and served as the launch pad for SPC and its emerging legislative agenda.
