Perhaps compassion and empathy would contribute to a certain level of understanding as well. But I'm pretty sure I don't possess those strengths, so ...

This story is really f**ked up and depraved.

And yet it so acutely captures modern social dynamics, that its setting within the porn industry becomes merely incidental. That's what's truly alarming, immo.

So what you're saying is she has a right to not sleep with a bisexual man.

Sir this is the year 2017.

Porn is destroying more people's lives than hers.

Sad anyway you look at it

Porn is an industry that takes so much from those who work in it, with comparatively little gain in return. It is also a career path with a short lifespan, particularly for women once they reach a certain age. And despite many efforts from within the community to organize, reform and improve conditions for actors, many hard realities remain entrenched.

And like the broader entertainment industry, beneath the contrived glamour and panache lie many mundane realities and struggles and hard work. As with mainstream actors, pornographic actors (to a large extent) become a commodity — an image, a persona. Mercedes Grabowski is commodified as August Ames. So when an actor draws a line as to where the commodification of self ends, the backlash can be severe.

I hope for the sake of her peers, who were laying criticism on thick in the wake of Mercedes articulating her professional boundaries, that the timing of her death is merely coincidental. Otherwise, that's some really shitty karma to carry moving forward with their lives.

RIP.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but it is disconcerting that so many people lack the awareness to make the distinction between the person and the commodity. While families and friends mourn the losses of Mercedes Grabowski, Steve Rogers or David Jones, the public mourns August Ames, Sam Shepard, and David Bowie. And to suppose that these parallel mournings are of the same nature demonstrates inexcusable naivete and gullibility. And in the case of pornographic actors, the confusion of commodity and person results in some incredibly distasteful reactions to the person/commodity's passing.

Bump

Microcosm meet macrocosm. Boom! "And there was light."

Oh, I see what you're doing there! Clever. I must admit, it's hard to keep up with a mind as sharp as yours. Up is down, left is right, and the ultimately fatal flaw of all that binarist-absolutist thinking. Good on you for exposing the dead-end which dualistic philosophical constructs inevitably lead us to.

Good show, old chap. I say: Good show!

RE: August Ames dead at 23
Guess this original August Ames thread got too hot to handle for the LOP herd. Back to the drawing board, it seems — this time framing the issue in homophobic terms. This forum is pathetic.

Ames didn't oppose homosexuality, nor did she refuse to perform with homosexuals. She drew her professional line at performing with men who also performed in gay porn, because she felt that the screening processes and safety standards were neglected in those corners of the industry. Whether that perception was accurate or inaccurate is besides the point.

Seriously, this place is f**ked.
