She's a porn star? The standards must have really fallen over the years. And how old is that kid, anyway? Not exactly my idea of a porn star.

It is horrible enough that the poor fellow has a porn star daughter (18!). The Daily Mail has made his pain a news story in itself. He can't even comfort himself with the lie that nobody will know and she'll be able to move past it one day. If his name is googled his familial shame will come up #1.

You live your life, become a doctor, serve your country, have a family and when someone googles your name your life is summarized as:

I pity the guy.

It should be illegal to act in porn under the age of e.g. 25.

To prevent pornographers exploiting dizzy teenagers.

The word "star" is used quite liberally in the industry.

Continuing the theme of 18 yr-olds behaving badly..

New Jersey teen sues her parents to pay up for college
By Kelly Wallace, CNN

A New Jersey high school senior sued her parents, accusing them of tossing her out of the family home when she turned 18 and refusing to pay for her private high school and college education.

Rachel Canning says she is an honors student and cheerleader, who was cut off from her family and could lose the opportunity to attend college

Well, then I guess we might as well just raise the voting age to 25 as well. After all, if a dizzy teenaged 23 year old can't be trusted to make decisions about her own life, how can we allow her to help make decisions for the whole country?

Voting is not the same as throwing away your life on video that will permanently be viewable by the entire world.

If you can't see any difference.. then you probably shouldn't be voting. or anything that requires brain cells.

You're right, it's not the same thing. If voting is to actually mean anything, it's much more serious, as it involves the entire nation rather than simply an individual. If by contrast, voting effectively means nothing, then a higher age limit is no real problem.

Basic competency to handle one's own private affairs being an absolute prerequisite to participation in public affairs is a reasonable condition.

Some of the 'best' porn stars came/come from ULTRA strict religious families.

I guess religion has some use. Very Happy

I agree. The average 20 year old is barely able to balance her checkbook. How could we trust that batch to make responsible political choices?

Ironically, the vote suffers the fate of basically everything in a liberal democracy. Lowest common denominator.

A landowner of 40 years, but less than 60, who has raised a family, participated in business honorably, served in the military, etc. Certainly not some porn-star freshman airhead.

Quote:
According to La Wik, Ms. Knox (Miriam Weeks) is a College Republican, a “sex-positive” feminist and libertarian. If you’ve the stomach for it, you can read her 15,000 hamster-powered post-hoc rationalization for her “career choices” here. All of it is quite grammatical, full of complete sentences and coherent paragraphs, well-punctuated, and not even wrong. If a girl this smart cannot be trusted to make wise “reproductive” decisions, then what chance has an ordinary girl? The “Patriarchy” is not threatened at all by you, dear. “Fear” you? Heavens no. You have only proved our point.

If your irony detector hasn’t shorted out by now, note well that Miriam is “Mary” in Hebrew. Yes, it seems clear, she was named after our Blessed Mother. The “virgin-*beep* dichotomy is an insidious standard”, eh? Then why, O why, so shamelessly, even articulately, ratify it? Couldn’t you have managed to be just a little bit in-between… ya know… like maybe… to point out the dichotomy is “insidious” (or something)?

Qui bono?

If you’re keeping score… ahead in the game: Duke University is getting its $60k per year. (It’s a “bargain” they say.) Its allies, by bonds as strong as the very moralistic verbiage by which Duke University would deny it, the Adult Entertainment (“sex worker”) industry. Miriam gets $1200, apparently, to *beep* on camera. How much do her handlers get? Also ahead in the game, various and sundry grievance enterprises: The Sex Workers are Peepul Too Industry, The Girlz Kin Do Whatever The Hell They Wanna & Face No Consequences Industry and the College is So Damn Expensive Gubbmint Gots to Do Sumfinn Industry (which happens to be a small, obscure subsidiary of Duke U. op. cit.). In short, the winners (like almost always in this age) are the very institutions that exist principally either to cause or benefit from (or both) the complete collapse of civilized culture—viz., the very institutions which need not and ought not exist.


She ruins her chance for a normal life, destroys her father and gets 1,200$ per scene. To earn 100k she needs to do 84 scenes. This is not big money by any measure.
