The Questions no one wants to answer

evolvingmatter:

darlarosa:

Let’s talk about sex work and choices…or choices in general…

Is it s a choice  because it is the most profitable option?

Is it a choice because education costs are skyrocketing?

Is it a choice because it’s the most abilable job option?

Or is it a choice because you actually want to do it?

Is it really a choice if it’s based on money?

Is the only way we define empowerment by getting money?

Sex work shouldn’t be stigmatized, but like any other field…is it really a choice? What are our choices really but myths we like to tell ourselves when we’re stuck as cogs in a machine we did not build?

I think this would be because I would answer all of these question as “this is completely irrelevant”.

We don’t argue with fast food workers and cleaners about whether their work is really a choice under capitalism or whether it is really empowering. This is a debate that does precisely nothing for sex workers.

"Sex work shouldn’t be stigmatized but I’m gonna stigmatize the fuck out of it anyway by singling it out and separating it from all those other fields that I didn’t bother to mention." ugh.

"the sexual exploitation industries: prostitution, pornography, stripping. These are ways that men buy and sell primarily women’s bodies." - Robert Jensen, who can burn in hell.

  • Him: Hey hon why do you have this huge stash of hard drugs?
  • Me: Oh that's my stash for when you die, so I'll have something to drown my sorrows with.
  • Him: ...
  • Me: Don't be mad. If I die first it's all yours.

Just now realized that the lyrics to the theme from Flashdance say “take your passion and make it happen” and not “take your pants off and make it happen” like I thought it said. In my defense, “take your pants off” kinda fit with the theme of the movie. 

ugh, just saw a terf say:  ”good job blaming women for something men do” when their own fucking theory is rife with blaming women for things men do. How often do you hear radfems talking about how other women are collaborators, enablers and ‘handmaidens’.

It’s pretty much one of the main tenets that differentiates “radical feminism” from other sorts of feminism, and yet somehow radical feminism itself is supposed to somehow be immune from that sort of “how is this woman collaborating in women’s oppression” analysis. Such blatant hypocrisy. I guess radfems are the only ones allowed to blame women.

breaking news: evil feminist leader Anita Sarkeesian ruins gaming everywhere forever by saying “that’s pretty sexist, how about not doing that.”

nice guys everywhere are suffering. now they cannot beat up a hooker and steal her money without thinking “maybe this is sexist”. the american way has truly collapsed and our nation will never be the same. please take off your fedoras for a moment of silence.

if you seriously fucking think “beating up a hooker” is about misogyny and not whorephobia then you have shit for brains. Stop supporting whorephobia stop erasing sex workers from shit that’s actually fucking ABOUT US you fucks

Yeah, what lumpenspaceproletariat said pretty much sums up how I feel about the 2 most recent ‘women as background’ vids from femfreq in general. FF framed the whole analysis in a way that erased the fact that it’s largely whorephobia at play and not just plain ol’ misogyny. It was like she spent 2 whole vids talking about violence against SEX WORKERS in games without actually talking about how it WAS violence against SEX WORKERS that she was talking about. It’s a real easy way to be able to avoid the topic of VASW while simultaneously using it (exploiting it!) in order to be able to make a feminist analysis about women in games. And Saarkesian totally leans hard to swerfdom, she’s even got gail dines (and other anti-porn folks) listed as sources on her website.

This is so wrong. This is so doesn’t-get-it. This is so “but we wanted to come here to connect and confront and assuage our feelings of guilt about the past while committing acts of betrayal in the present.” This is so full of ‘organic conversations’ bullshit. This is weak in it’s comparison of owners of for-profit-plantations with owners of other venues that artists might appear in. This is so bullshit.
