Sasha Grey Responds to Pearl Clutching Sex Haters

Sasha Grey Responds to Pearl Clutching Sex Haters

Here are the facts folks. Yes, despite the school's initial statement, Sasha Grey did in fact read to a group of 1st and 3rd graders at Emerson Elementary School in Los Angeles. She ain't apologizing.

Gray has been taking hits from all sides over her appearance at the school. Despite the apparent outrage of some parents and conservative media sources, Grey says she won't back out of the program. Her written response is in full below.

"I am proud to have participated in the "Read Across America" program at Emerson Elementary School in Compton, CA. I read “Dog Breath” by Dav Pilkey to the sweetest 1st and 3rd grade children.

 "Read Across America" is a program that was designed to promote literacy and instill a lifelong love of reading in elementary school students. Promoting education is an effort that is close to my heart. Illiteracy contributes to poverty; encouraging children to pick up a book is fundamental.

 I believe education is a universal right. I committed to this program with the understanding that people would have their own opinions about what I have done, who I am and what I represent.

 I am an actor. I am an artist. I am a daughter. I am a sister. I am a partner. I have a past that some people may not agree with, but it does not define who I am.

I will not live in fear of it. To challenge non-profit education programs is an exercise in futility, counter-productive and anti-educational.

I cannot thank my fans and 'Read Across America' enough for supporting my decision. Your support and kind words continue to inspire me. I believe in the future of our children, and I will remain an active supporter and participant in education-focused initiatives."

Of course the young minds of California are now poisoned forever. When confronted with the news, the school made the odd mistake of flatly denying that Grey had ever been present.

For the record Grey gave up porn over two years ago and has since become a mainstream film actress as well as a publishe d author. Without getting all Random Rants on you, we think this is pretty messed. Slut shaming and demonization of sex workers aside (that shit is garbage), Sasha is a legitimate actor--and even if you do despise and dehumanize sex workers--its, absurd not to treat her like one.
