The story of the American student, starring in porn to pay for tuition at first glance looked like a betrayal, the second – as a forgivable error, and in fact was impeccable social experiment staged over a society of instant sympathy or immediate condemnation.

When in the University newspaper The Cronicle there was a message about freshman Lorraine, who acted in porn films in order to pay for expensive training at Duke University (NC, USA), few could have predicted the outcome of this story and some formations will blow up.

Lorraine in detail and frankly told about the fact that every vacation goes to Los Angeles to star in adult films, and parents lying about exams. According to most girls, she cannot afford such an expensive tuition, because her family has no money.

For a long time she worked as a waitress, but the money was missing her just for accommodation and food. In addition, she stated that she now feels full and independent.

Against

The scandal has not kept itself waiting.

Lorraine immediately came under condemnation from fellow students. In the comments on the forums, they likened her to the biblical character of Queen Jezebel, claiming that along with her she doesn’t deserve any right to privacy, her identity should be disclosed, but the actress condemned.

“We’re going to pretend that she didn’t know about the social consequences of participating in this business? She made her decision, now she must live with the consequences,” wrote one of the students at the University forum.

“This girl is definitely hypocritical – continuous controversy. It’s just ridiculous,” said the classmate.

The prosecution has not ended.

“Is there a College just for porn stars? Maybe she needs to transmit her own business there? Congratulations, you ruined my life,” gleefully reported another student at Duke University.

Loud and prolonged criticism was limited, however, to verbal threats.

Not without accusations of racism: African-American on the University website wrote an open letter to Lorraine, which argues that the porn industry and media culture shapes youth perceptions about racial superiority:

“Lorraine, I’m not judging your choice, but I would like to say why I don’t support your position. You will never see such a person as I am in pornography. I have black skin, curly hair, wide hips, which did not coincide with the idea of a porn star. You have racial privilege because you expose and promote archetypal traits that traditional society would deem sexy. The porn industry generates ideas about the ideal of race and body shape. People are still the victims of ethnocentric and cultural standards. But it’s not your fault and the fault of the industry that you are promoting”.

For

At the same time there were people who were called to leave the girl alone, but they were in the minority.

“Those who write nasty things about this girl – this is a beta version of real men. You are all pathetic and very similar to the 14-year-olds who face such things for the first time. Can’t wait to graduate and higher education and run away from you,” says one of the Sorority sisters Lorraine.

“If you’re so worried, pull out your checkbook and pay for her training, provide her that care. And if not, then let her live her life. I don’t understand why people care what she does,” the girl stood up for another student.

Got to the University.

“As expected, the debris at a private College. But you will never hear about such stories, say, Stanford. The story came to light, and from this will only get worse. Entered College, I never thought I would face this, despite the fact that I got a degree here, I’m seriously disappointed with the social atmosphere in the school: there are some narrow-minded racists, feminists and porn stars, ” says the student. – Not too great a concentration of such people in a place where people just want to learn?”

In turn, the University administration gave a dry commentary. “The actions of Lorain does not violate the existing code of conduct for students, – said the press-Secretary of the University Keith Lawrence. While we can’t give a detailed review. But there are no restrictions in the code relating to the appearance of students in adult films, not registered”.

Press

After the scandal the journalists wrote, the dominant theme was not the condemnation of Lorraine, and the problem of education: American universities do offer a prohibitively expensive training.

So, Matt Pasquini, a journalist for The Daily Illini, says: Training is expensive – and we all want to finish it to the end, isn’t it?

Lorraine is aware that makes. She went to College. She is well informed. She is ambitious. Of course, she’s a porn star, but that doesn’t mean anything. Put yourself in her place – the cost of education at the University is growing rapidly.

What would you do if you had no money? I’m not campaigning to star in porn films, but some people go to great lengths to realize their dreams.”

Journalists found out and what was left without attention of the supporters and defenders of Lorraine.

As it turned out, the girl had to give an interview to the student newspaper, after her secret is accidentally revealed classmate Thomas Bagley. In one of pornorolikov he saw the girl, surprisingly reminiscent of Lorraine. He decided to approach her and ask her directly about her activities. The girl confessed, but asked Tom to swear he wouldn’t tell anyone. But the young man still told about her classes to her friends at the party.

As Nicky says Here in the log Techician Online, “surprisingly, no one condemns the student who watched this kind of videos and told everyone about what Lorraine is working on.”

The last argument

While the discussions and accused Lorraine of immoral behavior, violating the rights of blacks, or defending her as a victim of the high cost of education, the girl on the pages of the magazine Xojane mixed cards all participants in the debate:

“I’m doing what I love: shooting porn was exciting, exhilarating experience that has broadened my rights and opportunities. Shooting pornography brings me unimaginable joy. When I finish a scene, I know I did it and completed their work efficiently. Here I implement your creativity.

Let’s get one thing straight: I know exactly what I’m doing. How about you?

Society thus sets up a norm in which women simply cannot win. Why we’re shutting them access to work, education? Why are we despised, threatened and persecuted them? Why do we deny them an identity? Why is the idea of the woman having the sexual experience that frightens us?

We are afraid that a woman can take responsibility for your body. We aim to take away their choice. No one is willing to consider the lives of the people on the other side of the camera. No one wants to hear about the abuse and exploitation that take place, no one wants to hear about the violence committed every day against sex workers, no one wants to consider that we have hopes, dreams and ambitions.

I’m about to graduate, I’m going to realize my dreams.

Well, try to stop me.”

Stop Lorain no one.

Society of total social networking is very sharp, instantly and variously responds to trespassing, but today, when each offender (remember the story of Breivik) could in one motion sweep all the pieces off the Board, playing by the rules anymore.

Lorraine is possible to judge, it is possible to regret, it experience you can use. But distinct arguments in her final attack on American society and have not led, and all the emotions in his address girl disavowed itself.

Lorraine does not believe in tears.
