  1. I’m struck by the statements like “…almost empowerment” by Jean Paulfry
    and
    “Why isn’t anyone prosecuting him?” asks feminist writer Wendy Kaminer.

    Someone needs to clue these women in about the effects of these indecisive rhetorical classist statements.

    Goddess knows I tried.

    I corresponded with the article’s author Eve Conant of Newsweek about her request that I finding her college aged escorts who feel empowered by working in the business for her article.
    It seems that she didn’t want to speak to non college educated or older escorts about our level of empowerment.
    I told her how this classist attitude was part of the hypocrisy that mainstream media whore like her like to profit off and that it doesn’t really serve us escorts in our activism efforts to free ourselves. She could have cared less about our efforts to change our status and end the negative stigma and discrimination we live with.
    I took her to task about showcasing ‘feminist’ position on our occupation.
    All escorts have to be self determined in our occupation, not feminist who continue to make the mistake of calling into question the inequality of who is being prosecuted which only results in more law enforcement profiting off the criminalization our clients and takes money out of our mouths.

    I refused to contribute to her article on her terms because it doesn’t serve our purpose.
    Escorts and escort owners would do better to spend more time communicating with each other in the larger industry than these hacks.

    Its telling that this author chose to quote someone who doesn’t even work in the business over an actual worker like me.
    She gagged me.
