Gail Dines is a feminist. She writes about pornography from a feminist perspective, which means her voice is usually ignored when mainstream media discusses the topic. What follows is her experience of being invited to be on MSNBC to discuss pornography only to be bumped for people who would be friendlier to the industry and more fun to listen to.

Warning: she actually describes some of the practices that are overlooked when the topic is discussed by “friendly and fun” voices.
