Getting on the Cross: Miriam Weeks (aka Belle Knox) vs. the Slut-Industrial Complex

miriam-weeks

I didn’t want to write this post. I really didn’t. I’m sick of paying attention to the news, to the cavalcade of degenerates that comprise this country’s role models. I live my life in a blissful vacuum away from the cesspit of modern culture. I don’t own a TV. I don’t go to the movies. I don’t listen to the radio. I specifically removed Yahoo! from my browser’s home pages because I was sick of being assaulted with pointless and moronic news stories. Twitter and Facebook were my primary connections to the tastes and beliefs of ordinary fuckin’ people, and now I’ve shucked those off too.

But everyone, and I mean everyone, has gotten the Miriam Weeks/Belle Knox story wrong.

I’m not just talking about the mainstream media ignorantly celebrating her supposed moxie in the face of “slut-shaming” and death threats. I’m talking about the manosphere, the people I’m supposed to turn to for the answers. Aside from Davis Aurini and some of the wags over at Roosh’s forum, no one has come close to the fundamental reality of this girl’s existence.

Miriam Weeks is a self-made martyr, a lost little girl in search of someone who will tell her no.

Now before the usual suspects start crowing “LOL MATT WHY ARE YOU FEELING SORRY FOR THIS STUPID SLUT HAHA I HOPE SHE GETS AIDS,” let me state that Weeks is not an innocent victim in this story. Penning that xoJane column bragging about her porn career was an act of pure narcissism; constantly lying about her reasons for getting fucked on camera isn’t helping her case either. Let’s be real: contra the revenge fantasies of manospambots, Weeks could have easily concealed her whoring for years, possibly decades, had she kept her mouth shut. Maybe, just maybe, her schlub of a hub might have stumbled across her videos in twenty some-odd years and had a mental breakdown, but that’s it. On an unconscious level, she wanted to be exposed.

And therein lies the problem; she wanted to be nailed to the cross and she didn’t get it.

Miriam Weeks is a Catholic, raised by devout Catholic parents, and educated in Catholic institutions. The freshman analysis is that she got skullfucked for money as a middle finger to her conservative upbringing. Wrong. Weeks is indulging in that most Catholic of impulses: the desire to be martyred. To go against the grain and be punished for it.

It’s an impulse that is alien to the English-speaking, Protestant peoples, who can only understand pain in the context of inflicting it on other people, mainly Catholics. The English and the Irish, the Germans and the Poles, the Canadians and the Quebecois, the U.S. and Latin America; ever since the Thirty Years War, the way of the world has been Protestants stomping their boots on Catholics’ faces.

Catholics have been oppressed for so long that it’s been encoded into our genes. It doesn’t matter if you believe in God or not; you can’t escape your upbringing. Every Catholic wants nothing more than a cross, with a crown of thorns to boot. Just look at the crosses we hang in our churches. Far from the austerity of Protestant churches, our crucifixes depict Jesus in all his suffering: oozing, bleeding, sweating, drowning in his own fluids. That’s the life of a Catholic: relentlessly contrarian and against the world. We defend what we see as the Truth against the sneering Puritan hordes, and the more doomed our struggle, the better.

I forget who it was that stated that a disproportionate percentage of manosphere bloggers are Catholics (both lapsed and practicing). This isn’t a coincidence.

The martyr complex is alive and well in Miriam Weeks, in every respect. We’re talking about a girl who, when her boyfriend called her fat, didn’t laugh it off or resolve to lose weight, but grabbed a razor and carved the word “FAT” into her thigh. She’s a registered Republican and libertarian in an environment that is monolithically Democratic and fosters the most insane strains of Marxism. And when she decided to whore herself out, she did it in the most degrading, public manner possible: getting facefucked on camera, ensuring that future generations will be able to rub one out to her misery.

The secular Puritans of leftism and feminism don’t understand this at all.

I can only assume that the idiots who “support” Weeks against her (nonexistent) “misogynistic” tormentors haven’t watched a single one of her pornos. “B-B-BUT IT’S HER BODY SHE CAN DO WHAT SHE WANTS YOU CAN’T SLUT-SHAME HER YOU SEXIST BULLY!!!!!111” Just shut up. This isn’t about “choice.” Stepin Fetchit chose to play the dumb nigger for Hollywood, yet we’d rightly denounce any black man who did the same today. This “debate” smacks of when Susannah Breslin smacked down Glenn Greenwald for lamenting the incarceration of misogynistic smut peddler Max Hardcore without having watched any of his movies.

Here’s a (NSFW) highlight reel of Weeks’ Facial Abuse video. Watch it. You don’t have a right to comment on her if you haven’t watched it. I’ll wait.

Is that something a normal woman would choose to do? Having her beliefs and ideas ridiculed on camera? Being called a ho and a slut? Being made fun of for cutting herself? Weeks’ body language tells the tale: she’s frightened and revolted by her life choices. During the pop shot, she looks like she’s going to vomit. Taking a jizz load to the face isn’t as romantic as you thought, eh?

If you think this is just a one-off, watch some more of her pornos. While Facial Abuse is clearly the bottom of the barrel, she looks just as terrified and disgusted in her other videos. You can’t even call what she’s doing “acting”: her moans and movements have a bizarre, mechanistic quality to them, as if she resolved to suffer the minimum amount of humiliation to get paid.

And you leftists say you “support” Miriam Weeks.

She doesn’t want your support. She wants you to tell her that she’s a disgusting whore, that she makes you sick, that she’s a mentally disturbed degenerate who needs help. She wants to be called a slut, a cunt, a sick harlot, an ingrate who’s taken the gifts God gave her and squandered them for a pittance. She wants to be punished for her sins, to bear her cross and her crown of thorns. She even said so in that Daily Mail article: “I’m a slut who needs to be punished.” She wants you to hate her.

As the Domestic Discipline saying goes: “I don’t ask for a spanking, I just misbehave until I get one.”

And that’s what’s going to kill Miriam Weeks; she hasn’t gotten her spanking. Frankly, the near-monolithic “support” she’s gotten from the mainstream media creeps me out. Just about everything written about her has this “Lottery”-/”Britney’s New Look” vibe to it. Now that Miley Cyrus has gone off the deep end, the slut-industrial complex apparently needs a new spokesgirl to keep normalizing degeneracy for Middle America’s daughters. The Catholic martyrdom complex won’t accept this; Weeks will get her cross no matter how many supportive articles Jezebel writes about her.

I’m going to go out on a limb here: there’s a 50/50 chance that Miriam Weeks will commit suicide before she turns 25.

Despite “sex-positive” feminists and virginal libertarians’ attempts to wallpaper over the truth, porn is an awful career choice. Most of the women who get plowed on camera end up there because they’re basket cases with no other prospects. Calling them porn “stars” is a lie; none of them are “stars” in the sense that they become household names and/or can make a good living from their “craft.” Age, drug abuse and vaginal tearing give them the average career length of a football player, unless they consent to increasingly disgusting acts such as prolapse porn and scat. Not only that, since the bottom has fallen out of the porn industry due to file-sharing and tube sites, both the amount of work and pay rates are down across the board.

I figure Weeks will overdose on heroin; she’s already hanging out with drug-using porn actresses and has shown she isn’t averse to sticking sharp objects into her flesh. Slitting her wrists is another possible outcome. But she’s going to keep seeking martyrdom. If being skull-raped on camera won’t get her her cross, she’ll keep acting out until the nails are pounded into her wrists.

I wonder how the mainstream media will react when Weeks’ body is found. I can see the headlines now: “DUKE PORN STARLET FOUND DEAD IN APARTMENT.” Maybe Geraldo Rivera can do another week-long special: “Miriam Weeks: Tragic Beauty.” The chattering classes will blame her death on “slut-shaming” and claim that we need to be more “accepting” of sex workers and their choices. A Jezebel headline: “Did Misogyny Kill Miriam Weeks?”

Yeah. And the reason alcoholics are always dropping dead is because they don’t get enough to drink.

    this is great stuff. you have really good insights about the weirdness of catholic people….as a protestant in ireland this innate bdsm dynamic is pretty odd/funny/alien to behold.

  • You nailed it.

    The horror. The existential horror. Exterminate all the brutes.

    I might write a post later today about how Jesus died on the cross, and how one’s own martyrdom is neither needed, nor wanted, nor useful. I’m sick of seeing people choose to live in hell because they think they deserve it – a deserve that’s fundamentally based upon selfish recklessness. Every woman needs to be spanked on a deep level – but the ones who fetishize BDSM are looking to control the abuse, rising it to extreme levels, while holding the abuser at arms length to prevent intimacy.

    This Jordan Petersen video I linked a while back (1 hour long) might serve as a good palate cleanser: http://www.staresattheworld.com/2014/01/jordan-petersen-on-the-necessity-of-virtue-video/

    Matt-

    That’s an interesting analysis, and I tend to agree, depending on the “devoutness” of her upbringing.

    But is there any chance she was just simply “turned out” by an alpha male with a camera (naive and stupid girl) and now she is trying to work out her shame by cathartically re-enacting it and then running to claims of “patriarchy and grrll power” as a type of fig leaf for her shame?

  • Matt, brilliant post.

    I should have seen this having studied self harm a bit. The reason people cut themselves – and Miriam has self harm marks all over her legs – is because they feel they deserve punishment. Miriam clearly has guilt around sex and her upbringing which she is attempting to alleviate through porn and sex-positive feminism, but I would never have connected her libertarian political beliefs, intentionally outing, and porn choices as a form of martyrdom – though it’s painfully obvious when you break it down as well as you have. She’s chosen a new ideology that doesn’t shame her for sex, but is still acting out the self-flagellation patterns of the religion of her youth.

    As someone who grew up in a religious environment, it makes me wonder how many patterns myself and other men carry out that no longer serve us. I feel sorry for the girl, but I’m grateful for the opportunity for reflection her actions and your post provides. It also makes me wonder what she’ll do next. Her actions landed her on national TV and a job at pornhub. My guess is – yes, suicide is a possibility – but a more interesting possibility is that she’ll turn on the sex positive feminists she worked with, in the hopes they’ll lead the inquisition against her the mainstream and religious didn’t. How interesting would that conflict be? Maybe it’s sick to want to see such debasement for entertainment, but debasement is what she’s signed up for.

    Again, great post. I’ll be reflecting on it the next couple days.

  • Yeah that chick is fucking crazy! It goes to show that society has no intellect! Why would they think that getting face slammed on a video means being liberated?

  • Interesting take on the Catholicism view of this – most Non-Catholics couldn’t understand the Catholic perspective at all indeed.

    As for Belle Knox, even if she was talking nonsense regurgitated from her time in college, I’m not knocking her for it not only because she’s still young and would find those same views to be horseshit in a couple of years’ time, she went straight into some crazy hardcore depravity being a trooper.All that talk about “trying to pay for tuition in Duke” seems to be a straight-out lie – she wants to do porn and she was smart enough to find an angle to get this fame and notoriety.

  • Wilson

    I think you’re overlooking that common martyr is a phony. It’s just a game. Weeks is little different than the average woman, it’s possible she will be overwhelmed by fame and money, but she’ll probably end up married to some fool, or she might get elected to office.

  • Days of Broken Arrows

    I see what you’re saying. Mindy Kaling’s entire career is built upon this sort of thing. Victim chic.

    But there is something also something of Steve Sailor’s law of female journalists at play here: I think the reason Knox gets so much coverage is because her mediocre looks supposedly point to a sea change in what kind of women get to be sex symbols.

    But my opinion is that without the Duke hook, no one would have ever looked at this woman sexually, even in person. If you don’t look like Traci Lords, you need novelty appeal to make it in porn, and that’s what Knox made a point to push with her essay, something missed by the female journalists heralding her as some sort of sexual savior.

    Days,

    I wouldn’t be so certain about the “no one would have ever looked…sexually, even in person” thing. She’s feminine, slender bordering on skinny, not unattractive. She’s at least a 6. Surely there are groups of men who would have her get their attention. Whether it would be reciprocated is another story.

    Well done, Matt.

    Catholic reporting in. Some good comments made. linking to actual pornography is a bit scandalous. More insight: the “Catholic” schools have lost most of their discipline, again explaining her seeking of discipline, so much so i take the sedevacantist position that we have no pope and that consequently mist “Catholic” schools aren’t actually Catholic. the very very few number of catholic schools i know of use corporal punishment to properly train young kids. “he’s not suffering from adhd – hit him, and he’ll focus!” this was an interesting comment i heard one priest say but it’s definitely true (a little physical discipline ins’t abusive). i grew up with these vatican 2 lack of discipline, my parents rarely disciplined me after a certain age – but also because i didn’t do much wrong. “her parents are supportive” – this is contrary to a traditional catholic stance. if she’s lost her faith (likely?), she would basically be considered dead by parents, because her soul is dead. if she still was “catholic”, she would be gravely ostracized and maybe excommunicated for grave public scandal (i think abortion is an excommunicable offense, and this sin certainly leads a lot of people to sin). So, she is probably a product of these abnormal catholic conditions today. Additionally, because she has some self esteem issues (evidenced by the cutting), she may be seeking out sins of the flesh/sex as a substitute for love and as a drug to numb pain. overall, the quality of “catholic” schools has declined to the point where something like this was bound to happen, and everybody has free will and can be evil regardless of good influences around them.

    As a prod I don’t agree with some of this but there are brilliant insights here. Superb work.

  • Catholic convert checking in. Good post. According to Catholic moral theology, watching pornography is a mortal sin. It’s fascinating to see more and more non-Catholic men swearing off pornography because they recognize how it damages those who watch it. Miriam Weeks is far from innocent as you said. She chose this life. But maybe her life could have been different if she had received a stronger Catholic formation. Maybe I’m getting soft in my old age, but I pity her.

  • Mmmmmmmm interesting take. Myself I basically figured it was acting out.

    “Hi dad! Happy birthday! I’m a pornstar – a pornstar!”

  • Slumlord

    Difficult to do psychoanalysis without knowledge of some of the behind the scene facts, but, I’m gonna go out on a limb and suggest the following:

    Firstly, she’s almost pretty. Pretty enough to have boyfriends but not pretty enough to have her choice and I think she hates herself for it. High expectations with low ability. Lots of girls who are low on themselves need a validation fuck every now and then. She’s looking for a lot of validation.

    Secondly, she’s stupid. Deliberately choosing to take feminist studies as a major says a lot about a person’s practical intelligence and common sense. BTW, if she deliberately chose this as a major then she wasn’t a devout Catholic. Think about it.

    Thirdly, she’s a young woman from today’s culture. Therefore she’s probably an attention whore.

    Fourthly, she likes sex. A lot. Particularly submissive sex. The clips are very distasteful but some women get turned on by being treated like shit. Hard to comprehend but true.

    Fifthly. She’s in a feminist environment where everyone is cheering you on to be a slut.

    Dumb, Horny Feminist who got some self esteem issues and likes attention and sex. Mummy and Daddy not around to put the brakes on and all the sisterhood cheering you on….Nothing to see here people.
    There’s probably plenty of them out there who haven’t been outed yet but it does show just how low the bar is these days to get into higher education. She probably loves the idea of guys jerking themselves off to her after watching the video. It makes her feel desired and she gets paid for it. Gee…..what could go wrong.

    Seriously, I don’t think Catholicism’s got much to do with it. Every stripper or hooker that I’ve met is always paying her way through college/university. When I ask them why they’re not working at McDonalds? They sort of stop wanting to talk to me. Dunno why.

    @BrFrSr

    take the sedevacantist position that we have no pope

    You’re the new version of Cafeteria Catholic. The liberals chose all the sweet stuff, the guys like you, all the savory. If you don’t believe that the Pope is legit then you’re not a Catholic. Check out the Catechism. Just call yourself a pharisee, it’s more consistent.

  • I don’t generally agree that all female sex workers are “fucked up” and have issues, but some do. This chick is a walking punchline and yes, coming on a woman’s face is wrong on all levels. Her and Miley Cyrus are both examples of the American Fallen Harlot syndrome, as I’ve mentioned in my blog. Thing is, she will get a free pass by feminists and Women’s Liberation movement while simultaneously blaming biological male sexual desire.

  • baguazhang

    Isn’t this just another branch of the whole victim worship the West loves so much? Victimhood grants legitimacy, access to pity, attention, altruism etc. It’s the same reason people fake racist attacks or exaggerate about homophobia.

  • ominous

    So how do you deal with someone like herMatt?

  • Damn dude, you KILLED it like Cool G Rap in Symphony! This shit left me speechless like the opening scene in The Last Boy Scout.
