How Bill Cosby, Porn, & Rape Culture Are Intertwined

not the cosbys xxxAlexandra Mayers fka Monica Foster commentary: Isn’t it ironic that I starred in the porn parody Not The Cosbys XXX as Phylicia Rashad’s character “Claire” ?  She still hasn’t said a word about the recent Bill Cosby allegations…but that’s besides the point…

Due to a statement released today by Bill Cosby’s daughter Evin (click here to read) claiming “He is the FATHER you thought you knew”, I tweeted the following words in response:

Bill Cosby’s daughter’s statement is odd. She basically asks the public to view him as the fictional Cliff Huxtable.
I think that’s the main problem. Bill Cosby IS NOT Cliff Huxtable. The show never should have been called The COSBY show. HE IS NOT CLIFF!
CLIFF HUXTABLE was not friends with Hugh Hefner. CLIFF HUXTABLE did not go to Playboy mansion orgies! Bill Cosby did that!
The public needs to understand the Bill Cosby situation is NOT about race or Black media. It’s about a man’s abuse of power in Hollywood.

Bill Cosby is NOT Cliff Huxtable of The Cosby Show.  The FACT that Bill Cosby is simply an ACTOR who played the fictional character of Cliff Huxtable is VERY IMPORTANT, because as of current the ONLY reason the American public who grew up watching The Cosby Show is having a hard time believing  the allegations against Bill Cosby is due to the overlapping association between who Cosby REALLY is as a person versus the CHARACTER he played on this sitcom which was titled after his REAL name.

Bill Cosby and Hugh Hefner over the years... they are very good (if not BEST) friends.

Bill Cosby and Hugh Hefner over the years… they are very good (if not BEST) friends.

In hindsight, doesn’t anyone else find it strange that The Cosby Show wasn’t titled The Huxtables instead? ‘Huxtable’ (NOT Cosby) was the name of the family The Cosby Show centered around. There were not any characters on The Cosby Show named Cosby.

As of today, a Los Angeles county’s District Attorneys office has made the announcement that it won’t pursue child sexual abuse charges initially filed by Judy Huth (who was 15 years old in the year 1974 when the event allegedly occurred).  Keep in mind, just because the District Attorney’s office has chosen to cite the statute of limitation as a reason not to pursue these particular criminal allegations, doesn’t mean the incident did not occur.

Judy Huth is NOT the only woman who has alleged that Bill Cosby molested her when she was a 15 year old minor. A woman by the name of Renita Chaney Hill, came forward last month with allegations that reflect that of Huth and several other alleged victims of Cosby (see the videos below).



Over the next couple of weeks, I will be releasing a special video blog series in regards to Bill Cosby, Hugh Hefner, Hollywood, Porn & Politics here on PornNewsToday and my associated website www.MonicaAtHome.com – I believe much of the issues the series will cover began 40 years ago in 1974, and it’s time for the public to learn the truth of the lies they’ve been led to believe.

Sorry Bill Cosby, but you ain’t getting any Black Media neutrality from this BLACK OWNED BLOG.  The fact that you’re even pulling the race card to distract from your despicable behavior makes me want to slap the pigment right off your old, ugly excuse of a face.

If you’ve ever laughed at Bill Cosby’s legendary comedy, like us, you’re probably pretty shocked about what’s going on right now. As of today, a total of 19 women have stepped forward accusing the beloved actor of various forms of sexual assault/rape between 1965 and 2004.

Now, let us be clear, like all people accused of crime in America, Cosby is innocent until proven guilty. But it’s hard to ignore so many individuals telling unsettlingly similar stories of being drugged and assaulted, all by the same man.

How could this be happening? As someone that many grew up seeing as the all-american father figure on legendary TV sitcom The Cosby Show, Bill Cosby is a far cry from what we all think of when we picture a creepy, sketchy accused rapist. How could such a “nice guy” that “everyone loves” be accused of something like this? Well, in a society where nearly 250,000 Americans report being sexually assaulted every year (with 60% of assaults never acknowledged), this is a question we should probably be talking about more often…

Obviously, there is no single cause when it comes to sexual assault. Psychology and human behavior is extremely complex – as are the contributing factors that lead to rape and sexual assault. However, according to the U.S. Center for Disease Control, we have scientifically proven tendencies that show if someone is more likely to force themselves on another person sexually. These include:

 Coercive sexual fantasies

 Preference for impersonal sex

 Hostility towards women

 Hypermasculinity

 General tolerance of sexual violence within the community

 Societal norms that support sexual violence

 Societal norms that support male superiority and sexual entitlement

 Societal norms that maintain women’s inferiority and sexual submissiveness.

These are the kinds of attitudes and behaviors that we know, scientifically, lead someone in the direction of sexual assault.

But where do they all come from? How does someone develop “coercive sexual fantasies” to begin with? What about a preference for “impersonal sex” or a “more general acceptance of sexual violence?”

And what are some of these “societal norms” that the CDC could be referencing?

We’ll give you one guess.

Studies have shown that exposure to pornography creates shockingly similar attitudes to those listed above.

And while no one argues that pornography by itself leads to rape – especially since many who are exposed never get sexually aggressive – research has made clear that exposure to pornography creates the very attitudes that show up on lists of risk factors for sexual aggression.

Once again, no single cause is the reason for any act of sexual assault – including those accused against Cosby. However, it is worth noting that we do find it interesting that in light of the accusations, media outlets have begun digging into Bill Cosby’s friendship with Hugh Hefner, the founder of Playboy Magazine. After the two met in the early 1960’s, it’s been reported that since that time, Cosby was a regular at the Hefner’s parties at the Playboy mansion. Currently, three of the women making accusations towards Cosby have connections to Playboy.

We’ll leave that up to you on whether you find that coincidental or not.

So, again, what leads the charismatic “nice guy” to be one who forces himself on unwilling women? The simple answer: lots of things. But as philosopher Robin Morgan once said, “pornography is the theory, rape is the practice.” Porn leads to harmful perceptions about rape and promotes its culture in society.

This is not something we want to see have an influence in the world.

That’s why we Fight.
