Sasha Grey Slams Media

Sasha Grey Slams Media, A p*rn star walks into a school… it sounds like the beginning to a bad off color joke. But, according to recent news it isn’t a joke. It’s a true story that has become a media firestorm. Most of us have read, watched or at least stood around the water cooler discussing the latest negativity hype about former p*rn star Sasha Grey reading to a group of school children. The first question I asked myself when I first heard about this was “Why is this news?” The second question I asked myself was “Why is she being persecuted for doing something admirable?” Shouldn’t the headline have read something like “woman takes time out of her day to do a charitable act?” But, no one cares about that, right?
Unless the children that were enjoying a storybook are avid fans of p*rnography, I fail to see how they would even be aware of what she used to do for work. If those children were aware then there are bigger issues at play. With that said, if she was reading Dr. Seuss t*pless or doing a slideshow version of the Kama Sutra during show and tell — I could see the problem. If she was dressed inappropriately, showed up drunk or used profanity — I could also see a problem. None of those things happened. She read a book to excited children eager to hear a story. But, that isn’t what made the news. What made the news was the fact that she used to do p*rn. It seems to me she should have been praised for helping children to understand the importance of literacy and the joy of reading. What does it matter to a group of school children what someone does or used to do for work? Was she breaking the law when she was in front of the camera? No. She was acting as a consenting adult and has since even changed career paths. I’m appalled that this was even made an issue. If the children didn’t know what p*rn is — they certainly do now!
