I’ve told all of you that I’m being harassed and verbally abused on Twitter by the pro-prostitution lobby. Johns tell me I’m a cunt and send me porn for speaking the simple truth about male violence against women in the underground we call the sex industry. Today I was grilled about my time in the sex industry by a woman who I believe is still in the industry. Here’s the Storify to view.
Prostitutes tweet me with silly notions such as ‘New Zealand’ has a low trafficking rate’, as if that’s something to be proud of. Liberals incessantly tweet about the joys of unionizing women, joining them together in their suffering.
Are there some prostitutes with choice? Of course. Senator Mobina Jaffer relays on her blog the story of Taryn Onody in what she thinks is the representative of hookers everywhere. Onody wrote:
“I started in the adult industry when I was 21 years of age. I grew up in the suburbs of Toronto. I’m a practicing Catholic. My parents are upper-middle class. My siblings are tax paying, working citizens. I come from a wonderful home, wonderful people, and a great upbringing. I was an over-achieving student with accelerated grades, and hold multiple post-secondary diplomas/degrees. I am the ‘girl next door’.
I started looking into sex work when I became bored with my corporate job, which I had held for 5 years. I felt bored, trapped, and craving something more in my life’s experience.”
That’s the ‘happy hooker’, ready to be consumed as the product of the American dream. She’s just a highly educated religious ‘girl’ (mother/whore) who wants more, wants more dick. Onoda is the perfect woman.
She put aside her possible high earning career in order to cater to the sadomasochistic male fantasy. Men will line up to pay to punish her for being such a stupid woman who went to school, got the grades, and realized that all she’s really worth is to be fucked, repeatedly, by men.
If Mobina Jaffer wanted a true representation of male fantasy, she got just that. The reality however, is much different.
comment truth remains in ‘moderation’ on Jaffer’s blog. It will never be approved.
AWAN, the Aborginal Women’s Action Network, has a different story, one of colonization, one of horror. Brown women are coerced and trafficked by white men to supply the demand for 14 year old girls. These ‘other’ women don’t deserve to be liberated. The pro-prostitution lobby doesn’t hear them, even as they whisper their names from the grave. They remain un-named, as un-people.
The pro-prostitution lobby will stoop to any level to get what they want, which they say is full decriminalization.
The dominatrix who wants to run a brothel, Terri Jean Bedford, one of the three women who brought the original constitutional challenge followed me on Twitter last week. I thought it was strange but I realized the intent was to put the spotlight on me, so others could come after me, and that’s exactly what happened.
Bedford has some strange bedfellows. She’s retweeting MRA’s. She’s even retweeting MRA’s who are retweeting some of my tweets that have nothing to do with C36 but about Gamergate. MRA’s are pretty much behind the stalking, online threats, and harassment of women in gaming but hey, if it will get more people to attack me, she’s for it.
I don’t particularly care if she retweets MRA’s since she’s the one who looks foolish. MRA’s are just nuisances on Twitter anyway and most of them I’ve blocked, including the one in the picture. He loves to stalk my tweets because I blocked him and he’s butthurt about it.
The same strange alliances held true on other social media platforms. Pro-prostitution folks on video sites align themselves with male supremacist/white supremacist MRA’s because they both hate radical feminists. I’ve seen them on Twitter. It’s only a matter of time before they attack me too. No arguments, just dumb adhoms. That’s what will happen.
I’ve been accused of being an ideologue, which to me isn’t even a criticism. I have to laugh at this because everyone tweeting has ideas about this issue. Then again, I’ve not encountered one MRA or one prostitution lobbyist who can actually make a truthful argument. I had one pro-prostitution lobbyist accuse me of not seeing people as people.
I do laugh at how determined they are to make fools of themselves and they quite clearly know that the research is on my side so I suppose the only thing left is to personally attack.
I’m not the only one being attacked. Anyone who speaks positively about Bill C36 is singled out too. One common tactic is to accuse an exit program of collecting grant money from the federal government, as if that’s a crime while johns in my neighbourhood pay marginalized aboriginal women $2 measly dollars for a blowjob.
It’s a 3-ring circus. The johns, the circus masters, remain behind the curtain in the shadows. Not a single john offered to speak at either the House or Senate meetings to tell the Canadian people about the 13 year old girls they buy to re-enact violent porn scenes on and how this is their ‘right.’ In truth they don’t have to. We see their destructive wake in our nightmares, the collective women’s nightmare.
Every Valentine’s Day I hear the screams of the murdered women. Aboriginal women and other poor women march by my window so I never forget. They lost their lives so a man could have an orgasm. If anyone tells you different they’re lying.
Why is there such a divide in experience between exited women and current prostitutes? One side is lying and it’s not the survivors. When I was prostituted I thought I was awesome and in a ‘job’ too. I based my entire psyche around normalizing what I was forced to do. You have to see it as normal because it’s the only way you survive.
The stigma that lots of individuals in the sex industry talk about doesn’t come from anyone else but the johns, pimps and traffickers who coerce minor girls to serve men’s needs for sexual violence.
The problem with legalizing or decriminalizing prostitution without any culling of the demand is that it guarantees marginalized women and girls will be coerced, pimped, and trafficked to supply the demand. This is tragically simple but the prostitution lobby is in denial.
The longer we cater to this denial the longer we have to wait for women’s liberation from male violence.
Prostitution is not fun. It’s not a job. It’s an oppression. Blaming radical feminists, religious institutions and exit groups for pointing out this truth is just another way to strawman. It’s exactly what MRA’s do. It’s no wonder they’re in bed with each other.
They deserve each other.
