Belle-Knox-Duke-University

Turnabout is fair play. The tables have been turned on the male student who outed Belle Knox, the Duke University student who works as a porn star, now that a porn distributor has published his porn preferences for the whole world to see.

“[If] he can shame girls or doing porn, I can shame him for watching it,” said porn distributor Mike Kulich.

According to The Daily Dot, Kulich is a notorious press-courting porn distributor who is famous for making offers to people in the news. He offered Amanda Knox a porn deal, and recently Tweeted an offer to Rachel Canning, the 18-year-old who is suing her parents to make them pay for her college. This is clearly another example of him taking advantage of a news story to publicize his own company, but this time the offer is going to Thomas Bagley, the student who outed Belle Knox–even though she asked him not to–and we think it’s fair that he get a taste of his own medicine.

In an open letter, Kulich thanked Bagley for being such a big supporter of the adult film industry and subscribing to sites like Facial Abuse. He also offered the Duke freshman $10,000 to star in his own porn:

“We will make you a celebrity because it is apparent how much you love porn and attention,” Kulich wrote. “10 Grand is a lot of money for a kid like you. Do you know how many porn memberships you could buy with that? That is more than a lifetime membership to Facial Abuse!”

As far as we’re concerned, this is totally fair game. The Daily Dot reports that Belle Knox specifically asked Bagley not to reveal her secret after he found out, and he allegedly promised to keep her secret. But then he told everyone at a fraternity rush event anyway, because he’s a gossiping jerk. Now the world knows what kind of porn he’s been watching, and also that he thought it was OK to pay a ton of money for pornography and then out the performers in it for public ridicule and harassment.

“There’s a saying in porn: ‘People j*** off with the left hand and point their finger with the right,'” Kulich told The Huffington Post. “I want people to know that porn stars have families and they’re just trying to make a living. If you’re enjoying their work, why ruin their lives?”

There is an enormous double standard in our society, where it is just assumed that adults buy and consume pornography as a healthy part of their sexuality, but the performers in it are vilified despite the fact that their business is completely legal. It’s unfair and illogical, and it needs to stop.
