Getting what he deserves

When I first heard that Joe Francis (the creator of the odious Girls Gone Wild franchise) was arrested on Tuesday, I couldn’t help but smile a little. Not that it hasn’t happened before, and not that I thought it would come to anything, but anything that makes that smug creep suffer a little bit makes me happy. He was being held on violating a contempt of court charge, which was pretty minor, but then he spent a night in prison and today, things got much worse for ol’ Joe. Turns out trying to bribe a security guard and sneaking prescription pills into jail isn’t actually legal, even if you’ve exploited your way into a multi-million dollar empire. Now he’s facing a 5-year prison term in a Federal Prison, and he cried as he was led away in handcuffs today.

Perhaps you aren’t bothered by Girls Gone Wild as I am. Perhaps you think that it is nothing more than drunk sluts looking for a way to claw their way onto the D-list, and that it isn’t hurting anyone. Perhaps you don’t think he deserves to be lambasted. If so, you need to go read this article right now, and just realize what a filthy, vile man he is. It’s long, but it is incredibly insightful and well-written and it will make your skin crawl. This man deserves every bad thing that comes to him. Oh, and Joe, you know how you told that reporter:

“I’ve been anally raped over and over by the media.”

You think the media was bad? You just wait.

  1. OH, I couldn’t agree more. He is vile and has done incredible damage to women.

  2. He’s vile, no doubt about it, and one can only hope he’ll get a taste of the degradation and shame he’s been profiting from for so long once he ends up in prison.

    That said, I rarely have sympathy for the girls who show up on his DVDs (the rape victim in the article would be a major exception, of course, as would anyone who is genuinely assaulted as part of the process). The display of their breasts on video for the world to see is simply the end result of a series of bad decisions that they have made (i.e. binge drinking or not being able to think more than 2 or 3 minutes into the future when it comes to consequences and ramifications), and they bear the lion’s share of responsibility for any humiliation they feel after the fact.

    Does this make me sound awful? I worry…

  3. I think that there is a reasonable debate that can be had about the adult film and porn industries and whether women participating in the aforementioned are being degraded (in acting as objects of male sexual fantasy) or liberated (in that they take control of their sexuality and flaunt traditional patriarchal norms).

    Having said that, this guy is a slimeball, a prick, and deserves everything he gets.

  4. I couldn’t agree more with you, Taylor. I ususally believe that women in the porn industries deserve to be degraded to some extent, but “Girls Gone Wild” bothers the Hell out of me because it is taking advantage of young, impressionable, and intoxicated girls. I don’t know why anyone would want to watch a bunch of sloppy drunk girls go at it.
