PORN STAR COMES OUT … AS A LIBERTARIAN
By FITSNEWS || James Deen (a.k.a. Bryan Matthew Sevilla) is one of America’s most well-known male pornographic actors. Or so we’ve been told … (we don’t watch those sorts of films).
According to The Daily Beast, Deen is also a raging libertarian – and the foremost advocate for your First Amendment right not to wear a condom on screen.
Wait … what? Yup. According to Deen, freedom of speech extends to his genitalia – hence his strident opposition to a California law mandating the use of condoms on the sets of adult movies.
To Deen, the California law is “equivalent to violating performers’ civil rights.” And we agree.
Sex with multiple partners – on or off camera – is inherently risky behavior. And anyone who engages in such behavior should know that. And knowing that, should they fail to take the necessary precautions, well … that’s on them. However if consenting adults wish to engage in sexual activities without using condoms – especially in the pursuit of gainful employment – then that’s entirely their business. And none of the government’s business.
Deen is correct. The First Amendment protects his right not to wear a condom on set. As ridiculous as that sounds, it does.
Deen is also adamantly against “affirmative consent” laws, in which it college campuses are denied funding unless they apply a new standard of consensual sexual activity – one in which both participants make on the record acknowledgements of their interest in pursuing specific sexual acts.
“That is the dumbest f*cking law I’ve ever heard of,” he told The Daily Beast. “We already have a law against rape. Just don’t f*cking rape people. We can’t throw a law at it and think it’s going to solve it.”
Take “hate crimes.” Murder is already murder … why are we further criminalizing something that’s already inherently wrong?
Deen says America has become “a terrorist country” – one in which an increasingly large and unruly federal government is “stepping on civil liberties.”
Anyway, sounds like Deen is one of those Americans looking for fresh electoral options.
