According to the wikipedia page, Herbert Streicher was arrested in 1974 for "conspiracy to distribute obscenity across state lines".
Let's get something straight about some things right now.
Deep Throat was in fact the reason Herbert Streicher was arrested. The plot of Deep Throat is a sexually frustrated woman who cannot orgasm, except by performing oral sex on a man. There are no rape scenes. There are no people being forced to eat fecal matter. There is no gore. There is no murder.
Linda Lovelace (Linda Susan Boreman) was forced into the porn business by rape – but they are just that – allegations – and irrelevant to the plot of Deep Throat and the way it is presented on film.
Women performing oral sex on men (in a good natured film with some campy humor) is what our government called "obscene".
Men getting raped in prison – for REAL – not on film – our government has a “who cares” type of mentality. And yes, prison rape was in fact occurring in 1974. A study conducted in 1974 estimated that 10 million men would be raped in prison – out of 46 million inmates total – roughly 1 in 4.
So, Herbert Streicher (Harry Reems) was the first actor to be arrested for appearing in a film that featured no rape, no murder, no young boys eating fecal matter, etc… You know the kind of film – Salo – one of Fat-Fruitelle's favorite pictures. Salo is NOTHING like Deep-Throat. Deep-Throat has humor in it, and the main character is a woman seeking sexual satisfaction – not by violent means either. She seeks a doctor's advice on how to achieve sexual satisfaction.
So, Deep Throat is NOT what I would call an "obscene" film in any way shape or form.
Men getting raped in prison – that is what I would call obscene.
I think about things like this often. Our government lies on a regular basis about how many women are raped – how they are raped – when they are raped… They lie about how often domestic violence occurs and who commits it the most often – all in an effort to poison women’s minds to be fearful and/or hateful of men. At the same time, they ignore how many men are raped in prison – when they do not ignore it, they often cheer it – as "fit punishment" for the criminals in prison.
So – they frown on heterosexual relations, brainwash women to be fearful and/or hateful towards men, and covertly applaud homosexuality – more so when the homosexuality is forced on people via rape – as in prison.
It is almost like our government is run by some sick closet faggots or something...
Now, I know that many people reading will blame feminism. There are others that will blame Jews, Heavy Metal, Rap, Blacks, Hispanics etc...the usual band of kooks (Sick Filthy Faggots).
The grim reality is, it was the feminists and the radical Christian groups that were the biggest antagonists of Deep Throat.
I guess that "use sex as a weapon" – OOOPS!!!! I mean "sex positive" feminism had not been invented in 1974.
I also guess that the 197th commandment in the Holy Bible is "Thou shall not allow thy women folk to suck a man’s loins" was missed when reading the Bible. Commandments 11-196 include things like doggy style, doing it for pleasure, having sex with the lights on, bird-dogging etc – you know – all the same heterosexual behavior that feminists hate – unless they are "use sex as a weapon" – urp – I mean "sex positive" feminists.
I have said it before – the feminists and radical Christian groups are strange bedfellows – they always have been.
Ever notice that everybody wants us to think that they are avid enemies?
The same way that everybody wants us to think that the LGBT community and the Bible belt are avid enemies? Yet – those two factions are really the only two groups that still support marriage...
At any rate, because of the way our government acts, I will start referring to America as the Land of Sick Filthy Faggots.
If this offends you – good. I think that people need a good hard proverbial slap across the face about what the American government does wrong.
Stop brainwashing women to be hateful and fearful of men.
Stop labeling good-natured sexual acts between men and women as "obscene".
Stop applauding forced homosexual behavior (rape) – on anybody – PERIOD.
Ponder it all for a minute. This is exactly what our government does.
