Is It Wrong To Care About Porn Performers?

So many times, the majority actually, I have encountered men who I pretty much know have enjoyed porn who have totally eviscerated porn workers in conversation. This board is one of the epicenters of this phenomenon of total disconnect. I remember a thread last year about Joey DeStefano that was in praise of the actor. There was such a backlash against the very idea of a porn actor being good in any way shape or form that I came away from that thread thinking that the negative commentators were saying more about themselves than anyone else. What's really disturbing is that whenever a porn performer kills himself there is an outpouring of negativity ranging from cold callousness to downright venom. What I am getting at is this weird disconnect between porn performers and the people who consume their "product". Why is it we can care about mainstream actors who give us entertainment but we are conditioned to loathe porn actors who give us the same amount of entertainment, if not more so???
