Re: October 16, 2019: Woke Drones 19

I'm not so sure actually. Because most of what we see that zombie woman do is actually fight back and then when she swallows pills and puts on make up she is back to normal. As a zombie she is more free and wild than as a human. So I think we have to keep reading to figure this one out.

Re: September 27, 2019: Gender Non-conforming G.I. Joe

The way I understand it, it's definetly 1) men wearing high heels and lipstick only goes so far as a political act (not terribly far, though they certainly should be able to wear it without judgement or being attacked) and 2) its an active distraction tactic, when a man changes his asthetic to appea...

Re: July 13, 2019: Threats 29

The woman with the longer hair was exploited in pornography. I wouldn't call her a "sex worker", because she was pushed in by an abusive boyfriend pimp and by poverty. We don't know the new woman's exact circumstances, so I would wait to label her. I don't wanna prescribe your language, but I wouldn...

Women helping women <3
Exited women are the most powerful force for change. I'm so massively proud of them.

Re: July 3, 2019: Threats 21

woah! I did not know that. Here is just one example: Sandra Norak is a German prostitution survivor. At the very beginning of the video she shows a photo of the tattoo her pimp made her get. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDAjjnsPFBM There are no English subs and don't think I can add any (not ope...

Re: July 3, 2019: Threats 21

Interesting is that the girl has piercings above her eye. To my knowledge, in the prostitution industry (please forgive my wording, english is not my mother tongue) placing piercings and tattoos on prostitues is some kind of "ownership sign" of pimps. Something completely inhuman. That's a stretch....

Re: July 2, 2019: Threats 20

small point of contention with the pimp hat stories: while I understand they're meant to represent the patriarchy as a whole, the imagery of the (male) hat going wooo~ beam at women and them instantly falling in line sits poorly with me. women don't end up in sex work because they're told it's okay...

Re:  June 28, 2019: Threats 16

There's sort of a gross intersection of things with the whole "sex work is work" thing. Because it is work, in the sense that it's a form of labor. In an ideal world, sex work would just be a job as shitty as any other customer service position, the performance of a particular skill in exchange for...

Re:  June 28, 2019: Threats 16

As a former erotic dancer can I thumbs up this? A sex worker might have [or sadly she made have not] chose to go into the life but, she didn't choose to be dehumanized. When she wants out because of it, men [and even some women] flip their shit and call SWERF. She's suppose to love her job, love he...

Re:  June 28, 2019: Threats 16

SWERF is a dismissive term literally thrown at women in and exited from prostitution, if they criticize the industry. I know several survivors of prostitution who at risk to their own safety and mental health have been fighting for abolition and exit services and they get called "SWERFs". That label...

Re: Whats a woman?

I certainly do not wish to consider women, or being a woman, like a medical diagnosis and I apologise if that's what came through. I do believe however that genders only exist and manifest as they do because we believe in them. I'm not saying this is an easy thing to deconstruct, just saying that t...

Gender is Sexism

Can anyone explain what Gender is Sexism means? Gender = the social roles expected of men and women, aka masculinity and femininity respectively. Both function to uphold male domination over women as it makes men's dominating behaviour and women's submissive behaviour seem natural. Thus gender = se...
