Documentary With Belle Knox

The Scene has produced a five episode series Becoming Belle Knox about the now famous "Duke porn star", whose given name is Miriam Weeks. There's an interesting story about it by Jodie Gummow on AlterNet, too.

No doubt the struggles Weeks has endured are real, but we thought Gummow may have presented her as a more of a "typical porn star" than is justified. Most porn stars and starlets are not also trying to balance school work at one of the most demanding undergraduate institutions in the US. Nor are they dealing with the kind of slut-shaming and harassment that Weeks has had to endure.
