That said, when I was asked to participate in Lady Porn Day, my initial reaction was… mixed. I think this is mostly because I don’t identify as a lady. I identify as genderqueer, as neutral though I often play with gender. How I feel most comfortable is within androgyny. There’s a buzz around Feminist Porn, thanks to Toronto’s Good For Her creating the Feminist Porn Awards, soon to have it’s 6th annual ceremony. Part of me would have preferred the term be “feminist porn day” instead of “lady porn day” — or what I think is perhaps a more accurate term: “ethical porn day”. Because I feel that in essence, that is what is at the heart of Rachel’s project. People of all genders and sexual orientations — and this includes ethnicities, size, ability, kinks/desires — can find problematic issues within pornography in need of discussion, as well as can celebrate the porn they’ve found that works for them in a healthy way.
