Hey remember some time ago when people were debating with me about whether “whore” was reclaimable by all women or only sex workers (assumedly only women ones)?
I just realized something a while ago.
Men aren’t considered suspicious if they dress “sexily” and stand alone or walk alone on the street. They’re not stopped by police.
Men aren’t considered suspicious if they talk to stopped cars at night.
Men having condoms on their person isn’t a reason to arrest them.
Yet women are subject to this shit whether they actually are sex workers or not. So many women are being taken in that sex activists fear an outbreak of sexual health issues because women are afraid to take control in their sexual health because cops may grab them and accuse them of indecency.
Hell, even obvious pimps, who are technically sex workers, aren’t checked out as much as women, who may or may not be sex workers.
And, to be frank, the main reason sex work is seen as wrong and sinful, is because of myths of sexual purity which primarily affect women, almost only affecting women.
Just some food for thought.
