Cyber harassment study reveals the unsurprising!

It still amazes me that I talk to guys who still think they get harassed just as much as women online. Like even from people who aren’t clearly and totally gross dumbasses. It kinda makes me think that, even in the best cases, it might be hard to really understand the sheer difference in frequency. You see a woman get harassed on a game and you go “Oh well I’ve been harassed” without understanding that there is seldom a session for her where that doesn’t happen or understanding what her inbox might look like…

That is a sort of stunning degree of difference.

"The data’s in! Women were lying about online harassment!”

"Aha! We knew it!

Yeah, they’ve been severely underreporting how bad things are for them, turns out.”

"Wait, what?"

"can men and women really be just friends??" straight people are so weird

It is a fact that bisexuals can’t make friends. There is only prey.

Sex work needs to be ended, not supported.

Sex WORKERS are the ones that should be supported.

This is an oxymoron.

You do not “support sex workers” by trying to take away our livelihoods, and any attempt to “end” the industry inevitably winds up making sex workers lives worse.

You can tell yourself you’re supporting sex workers, but it doesn’t make it any less bullshit.

Okay, I don’t mean abolishing sex work instantaneously. I mean making it so less women have to be a part of the sex industry over time. Its not a good thing, it being a livelihood doesn’t make it a good thing. A lot of women are forced into it. Even more women become trapped in it. Children are in that shit too. That goes for every part too, from stripping to actual prostitution. Women’s bodies shouldn’t be for sale. Maybe that’s anti-capitalism mixing with feminism, but I’ve always thought they were the same thing.

Oh look, an abolishionist who uses the sensationalistic “sex workers sell their bodies” garbage.  And equating ALL sex work with involuntary sex trafficking, of course.  Gotta fit that in there too.  Jesus christ, no wonder progress is so slow toward sex worker rights, destigmatizing and empowerment when these are the morons who think they are helping us or have ANY right to speak on the subject..

1. Sex workers do not sell their bodies. We sell a service. Saying that we sell our bodies is implying the sexist notion that female sexuality is inextricable from our bodies. 

2. You literally have no evidence or experience to support the idea that sex work “is not a good thing” You cannot speak on behalf of an entire marginalized group, and making generalizations is flat out wrong. 

3. Sex work predates capitalism. Sex work has existed and thrived in every cultural and economic state imaginable. Getting rid of capitalism will not eliminate sex work. 

4. A recent five year Canadian study states that 70% of sex workers are satisfied with their jobs. 

5. Learn to differentiate sex work from slavery, and then learn that not all human trafficking victims are victims of sex slavery. Studies suggest that only one fourth of human trafficking victims are forced into the sex trade. Also learn that decriminalizing, shaping our social attitudes, and changing our personal perceptions about sex work aids in ending sex trafficking. 

6. Let sex workers speak for our own damn selves and experiences. Do some fucking research before you make such a blatant statement.

All these boys want to fuck me, then forget me. They like having me there when they feel like it. Like the thought of me moaning their names and that’s it. They invite me over, say, make yourself at home. So I climb onto their fire escapes and shake.

All these boys like to text me late at night, when they’re bored. “Just thinking about you,” they say. And that’s it. Or they type, “I read your poetry. You’re going somewhere.” “What did you read?” I reply nervously. When they get back to me it’s one, two, three weeks later. It’s, “I don’t remember. Some stuff.” And that’s it.

I am wondering what they’d write if they wrote about me. “She was nice. Sort of pretty too. But mechanical. Preplanned. I don’t think I knew her much at all.”

Or worse, “We talked a few times. I liked the way her mouth looked. Wanted to feel it on me, you know? Thought about us fucking a few times…Yeah, I’d say I knew her pretty well.”

All these boys wipe their drool on me like I am just the flesh. Just a place to die in, for the night. Just a sweet thing to reflect on when they’re feeling heavy. Just an idea that they never got and still don’t want. And that’s it. That’s it.

I know my way through the night to your door,
You know the blood that I’m owed is all yours,
The wishes I’ve made are too vicious to tell,
The devil already, he knows me so well.

And if it’s true, 
I’ll go there with you.
