I'm extremely familiar with the subject matter.

Off the topic of Browse, can I ask you a question about it since you are familiar with it?

One of the arguments I have seen in the anti-porn movement is that when we discuss sex-workers, we are prioritizing the voice of the volunteer over the voice of the conscript. So, we are prioritizing the rights of the person who uploads their own video over the rights of the person who has their abuse or their private videos uploaded without their consent. I think the assumption is that there are fewer volunteers than there are conscripts and thus the "prioritization" of said voice is unfair. Do you know of any data/info that would counter that argument?

The argument is kinda flawed because porn of people without their consent is already illegal and nobody supports it.

Data would be interesting thought

Agreed. It would've been nice if someone had a "hey, analytics have been done on uploaders of content and found that x% are self-uploaders" to counter the suspicion that the illegal content is being ignored to support the legal content.

More than that, the suspicion that people would ignore the illegal content to support the legal content is really poorly founded.

It sounds like someone projecting their absolutist views onto others.

Yeah it’s a bit like being anti-sex because some people are raped.

Being anti-abuse/non-consensual porn doesn’t have to throw voluntary porn makers under the bus.

To me it sounds like some mental gymnastics to justify an overly broad attitude towards porn.

It also reeks of authoritarian and shitty methods such as criminalization of various things etc.

I haven't seen any data on this, and honestly I doubt it exists.

I would've guessed that as well. Thanks for taking the question seriously. :)
