Dear liberal feminists, I have lost patience with your backing of the sex trade.
Sorry, in your deep ignorance, you say it is sex work.
You listen to sex trade profiteers, listen to male concepts of prostitution, listen to statements of empowerment and liberation – but stubbornly dismiss the multiple voices of exited.
This is like trying to understand the Holocaust by reading the diaries of SS officers, and avoiding testimonies of survivors of the concentration camps.
Oh, I hear your loud denial and justifications.
I hear and see clearly you many ways of pushing away exited women.
Now in this post, I will To how you are betraying all the prostituted – by doing so you are proving you have no real understanding of feminism.
I have hurt your precious feelings – well suck it up, you are colluding with genocide.
If you make the choice to call prostitution sex work.
If you speak in the language of labour rather than the language of human rights.
If you claim prostitution is a choice – especially an empowered choice.
If you rebrand the prostituted as sexual outlaws.
If you say the only “bad” push into the sex trade is poverty.
If you separate child prostitution from adult prostitution.
If you think New Zealand has the best approach to prostitution.
If you say the Nordic Approach is dangerous and pushing prostitution underground.
If you think indoors prostitution can made safe.
If you back sex work unions or collectives.
If rebrand prostitution and porn as adult entertainment or boys being boys.
If you external trafficking is economic migration.
If you disconnect child sexual exploitation from prostitution.
If you turn away from the racism of all the sex trade.
If, if, if you do any or all of these things, then you are no feminist and you are part of the problem.
This is not a labour issue, it not sex work.
Would be willing to having every cell in your body abused, ripped at, raped, threatened with death.
Would be willing to let even one punter do that to your body, let so many punters that you lose count.
Would you not deadened all emotions, try to get out of your body.
Can you not imagine that to be raped so often, it loses the language of violence and become your norm.
Till you survive by refusing to know it as hate and violence – and reinventing hell as chosen and empowering.
Is that your definition of sex? Would you call that work?
I frame it as slavery, as exploitation, as the making of a sub-human class named the prostituted.
I see the rapes, the torturing and the deaths of the prostituted as the longest genocide humans ever invented.
It started when the first caveman understood he could exchange food or goods for other men to rape “his” women.
Yes, prostitution is old, there as a background noise in almost all cultures.
It has many forms of hiding.
The stealing of women in territorial wars to rape and own is not as part of the sex trade.
The selling of wives is not part of the sex trade.
Geishas are placed outside the sex trade.
Stripping is disconnected from prostitution.
All this part of the sex trade, all fit in with prostitution.
But, you liberal feminists spend endless hours saying and writing about good and bad prostitution.
You are so desperate to imagine that prostitution can be made nice – safe and clean for your boyfriends, husband, fathers, uncles, work colleagues to consume.
You are imaging you doing this for the prostituted – bullshite, you are enabling the violence and hate of punters.
Your ignorance is increasing the profits for the sex trade.
Your ignorance is giving permission for punters to as sadist as they want with no consequences.
Your ignorance is increasing all forms of trafficking into the sex trade.
You are no innocent bystander, but an enabler of genocide.
I have enough of making nice, for as you debate and justify doing as little as possible – the prostituted are being tortured and killed.
