Call me Celina. I've been a fan since 2007, and tried to enjoy the old forum since then too. Now that we have a forum for radfems/people who actually enjoy the comic! Hell yes! I'll call up all my buddies here!! Armageddon is coming.

Modern pimps literally often look like this now: https://www.express.de/news/panorama/di ... x-31090160
The man in the photo is a brothel owner aka pimp who wants to rebrand paying for sex as something modern and edgy. But he argues the same old tired line of "sucks to have to get a woman to like you before you can sleep with her, let's skip that bit where you talk to her and get to know her like she's a human being, even if it's just for one night - just pay (me) for immidiate access instead". The whole article is so progressive, women in prostitution are referred to as "whores". Weird that johns get rebranding, women in prostitution are still universal outcasts and eyed with suspicion or disgust.

Profiting off of someone else's prostitution has only been legal in Germany for roughlyly 20 years, selling sexual access to one's own body has been legal for even longer (though always with restrictions) and still - even though pimps were far longer considered criminals and exploitation scandals still occur reguarly today - pimps are considered cool by many young people. Prostituted women are considered sexy, but completely reduced to their supposed nymphomania and thus once again... dehumanized.

To add to the above, this guy:

Ugh... The Art of the Pimp is listed as a book he wrote. Christ, it's a little on the nose, no Dennis?
