An adult film company is capitalizing on the heat of the U.S. anti-establishment protests by using a tent in the middle of the "Occupy Oakland" encampment as the setting for a new gay porn flick.

Billed by The New York Observer as a "homoerotic caper through the tents of Oakland's Occupation," Dirty Boy Video's "Occupy My Throat" is likely to have been inspired by Brandon Watts, an original member of the Wall Street occupation who lost his virginity in Zuccotti Park before being arrested after a gruesome standoff with the police. Dirty Boy Video president Andy Fair reportedly contacted the 20-year-old Watts, whose experience was apparently noted in a New York Times magazine feature, and offered the protester cash for the chance to tape his next experience.

"I offer you the opportunity to perform on our website, an opportunity to express yourself and your politics freely and without censor. Working together we can create a sexy, fun platform that inspires you, be that with other actors, actresses or both. Whether you choose to work with us or not, I salute your dedication and your courage," Fair wrote in his letter to Watts, according to CBS San Francisco.

Watts does not appear in "Occupy My Throat," which was reportedly filmed in the middle of the Occupy Oakland encampment at Frank Ogawa Plaza. The film's tagline reportedly reads as follows: "Police can ban the erection of tents at Occupy Wall Street, but they can't keep us from pitching a tent in our pants!"

Though the overall, ahem, merits of "Occupy My Throat" remain to be seen, some bloggers are greeting the release enthusiastically. "Many might find this perverted and/or an unnecessary distraction from the important issues of the day," writes LeFag. "We feel like this video could be a nice historical document in years to come, should the movement prove more than a flash in the pan."

your moms don't cancel out your straight privilege or the pesky little part where you have not lived as a queer/lgb person in a homophobic society

if you were as qualified to recognize homophobia, you might have recognized the homophobic sentiment in your comment that somehow your moms' gayness rubbed off on you (or the homophobia inherent in your sense of entitlement to a voice in discussions concerning and/or between queer/lgb people) :)

Being bullied by homophbes for your relation to queer people doesn't mean you can speak on homophobia as if you actually are queer.

i'm very sorry those things happened to you and your family. however, none of that cancels the straight privilege you reap for being hetero in a society that systematically and institutionally rewards straightness and punishes all else.

you were a victim of homophobic bullying. but you are no more qualified to enter discussions concerning and/or between queer/lgb people than a straight girl who was homophobically bullied because she didn't look straight enough to someone.

also, it's p homophobic to tell a lesbian not to dare telling you what aspects of her oppression you're qualified to have an opinion equal to hers on.

and try to include a trigger warning next time you decide to graphically describe homophobic bullying and violence and to whip out homophobic slurs (which btw is not okay of you)

Um, just saying... maybe they deleted their comment because they realized they were uncomfortable sharing such a personal story, and they let one of the mods know about it on the mod post page?

seeing as how a mod banned her on page 2, I doubt that happened

Ah, didn't notice that.

In a PM I think I recall they said they deleted it because people were offended and such (since they were asking for a trigger warning). I may double check, though.

That still wouldn't explain why she deleted her first comment

You don't. You have insight thanks to your parents, but your viewpoint is still an external and privileged one.
