A simple petition, plese sign and pass around

Dear Friends,

Our friend and ally in San Francisco, Hillary McQuie, harm reduction advocate, made this petition to support sex workers rights efforts and to address the scapegoating of craigslist. I hope you can sign it and pass it around.

    By the way, I’m just curious. What’s it feel like to know that the cock of someone who’s politics you detest has fired off in your mouth?

  2. Whybother, why are you here? Because I don’t think this blog is for you. It’s best if you go to places where people are more in agreement with you.

  3. Great petition! Simple is often better.

  4. So does it feel good? Does focusing on the money help? Ever feel like a tool? Just curious.

  5. I agree, it is a good and clear petition. Great wording.

    There sure are a lot of anti-trafficking petitions on that website–wow! Most of them are worded in very vague ways too.

  6. Ha! It seems sex worker-based petitions are confusing the Change.org crowd. Good!

  7. What high ideals you ladies aspire to.

  8. To Whybother:

    I don’t understand why you are posting on this blog. I don’t believe it was created for people like you. Please go to another blog where people will appreciate your comments. It is apparent your husband has seeked the services of a sex worker and now you are bitter and attacking us. It is very sad that you would come here to attack people you no nothing about. I think it’s your husband you need to have a talk with. We are not in the position to babysit your husband and you are definately not in the position to judge.

    In response to your question :

    “By the way, I’m just curious. What’s it feel like to know that the cock of someone who’s politics you detest has fired off in your mouth?”

    My response is:

    What’s if feel like to know that it’s women like you, who is so narrowminded, that have husbands who pay us to do what you are not handling at home? What does it feel like to know that after him spending time with one of us, perhaps not even wearing a condom at times, that he goes home to you and put’s his cock in YOUR mouth? What does it feel like to know that your Husband, Brother, Father, Neighbor, or Son’s are secretly spending time with us behind your back and asking us to do things to them that you would never ever imagine? What does it feel like that he is spending his extra money on us?

  9. Nadiarey, He just has fun on this blog because of the attention that he is getting, and if you take a look at Craigs List, you can still find a lot of advertisement.

  10. Naiderey, I think you made my point better than I could about the corrosive nature of sex work on one’s personal morality by the very nature of your responses. You seem proud that you’ve corrupted the bonds of marriage or relationships. Proud that you have sex with other women’s husbands behind their back, and they then go back and screw their wives completely ignorant of the fact they’ve been cheated on with trollops like you. Wallowing in a perverse sense of power.

    Jill, this is the sort of mentality I was talking about. True, it could be argued that her response in this post was a defensive reaction to my inflammatory comments in this particular post (I’ve toned it down significantly since said post was made, please don’t ban my pov), but jeez. Can you really tell me that, being completely honest, this isn’t a common attitude amongst the sex worker population? This sort of “ahahaha I boned your husband and made straight bank, you a sucka you dumb bitch!” attitude towards clients spouses?

    And as for you “Pleasure”, I comment on this blog for reasons that are more complex then simple attention getting. I am not a simple troll, as much as you might like to believe and categorize me as such. I have a distinct point of view which puts me in opposition, at times, with the purveyors of this blog.

    You may be surprised to find out that I am in favor of the decriminalization and legalization of prostitution. I am. However, I do simultaneously hold to the belief that there are many moral and ethical hazards that the business of selling oneself entail, and I thus endeavor to provide a an opposing viewpoint towards what I feel is a vulgar and inhumane attitude towards prostitution that is prevalent on pro-prostitution blogs such as this one.

    I personally feel that sex work can be a vital and valuable enterprise to both client and provider, however I feel also that prostitution and it’s role in infidelity greatly hinders the acceptance of sex work by the mainstream, and that sex workers need to come to terms with their moral and ethical shortcomings within this realm, in an honest fashion, if they ever hope to gain mainstream acceptance.

    Wow. The mind-fucking just does not stop.

  12. Whybother,

    How many clients have you had, girlfriend? Because you speak with ssssssuch authority.

  13. To Jill and other moderators,

    It may not be my place to tell you what to do on your blog, but I’m going to do it anyway: delete this fucking boob and his posts. How many times do we have to answer his fucking questions that he asks over and over again? The same stupid fucking questions.

    What he is doing is nothing but verbal abuse, plain and simple. Verbal abuse and slut-shaming. And I don’t think that any sex worker coming here should have to stand for it! Not one damn bit! And it’s not fair of you to make any of us put up with it any longer. He’s got to go.

    Please.

  14. Susan,

    Done.

    We do not lightly ban people from here but we have done it for the reasons you mentioned, plus some.

    In the future — everyone — do NOT feed trolls.

    A comment-policy is in the works. Seems like we need it.
