Feminists are cheering on the porn industry for having more female directors than Hollywood. They argue that the women occupying the director's chair are bringing a fresh perspective to the industry.

According to The Daily Wire:

The industry most exploitative of women is now being hailed by feminists for having more women in the director's chair than Hollywood.

Writing for The Daily Beast, Aurora Snow heaps praise upon the porn industry for having a record number of female directors nominated for the XBIZ and AVIN awards ā€” the two most prestigious awards in porn ā€” and for allowing the female perspective to expand porn's creativity.

"Given the recent nominations, 2019 might just be the year of women in porn," exclaims Aurora. "Eight of the fifteen XBIZ Director of the Year - Feature nominees are well-known and widely-respected women within the industry. Additionally, the same can be said for nearly half of AVNā€™s 2019 nominees for best director."

Compare the porn industry's number of acclaimed lady directors to that of Hollywood, which has nominated only five women for Best Director in its whole history, and feminists have a new cause to champion. Never mind the fact that it takes considerably far more talent and craft to earn an Oscar nomination, let alone the fact that porn dehumanizes women by reducing them to lifeless caricatures, produced almost entirely for male sexual gratification.

The article goes on to argue that the industry does more to damage women than it does to help further their causes.
