remember kids, spadeshipping is never cute in the least
reblogging for reference this weekend
it’s going to be EVEN BETTER
Look out for cosplay pictures soon. I’m going with Ryn, and we’re doing our TSG Gamzee/Terezi getups again…only better this time. Tights! I need tights.
Anyway, if you’re not interested, I’ll be tagging cosplay photos #Animazement and probably some other distinctive thing if you want to block the pics (but we’re going to be adorable so really it’d be your loss).
Sex Worker: Still not asking for it by dyke-recovery
I’m a feminist and a sex worker and i am so very, very sick of the “is it rape or theft if you fuck a hooker?” or the i use to get “You work in a strip club you shouldn’t get pissed off when someone tries to touch you, you’re the one working there”. Sorry but this is a service, not the selling of ones’ body or body parts. We own us, we decide how much we do, NOT the client or patron. We have the same rights as every other woman; to feel safe not only in our personal lives but in our work lives. It is not okay to do more than what is agreed to when paying for a service from a sex worker. If you are told no, you are told NO.
If a banker gets robbed did he deserve it because he is a banker? No.
If a soldier is shot during war, did he deserve to be shot purely for being a soldier? No.
Does a psychologist deserve to be verbally attacked because they’re paid to listen to other people’s thoughts? No.
So does a sex worker deserve to have their services abused purely because they are working in the sex industry? No.
Um I’m pretty sure a “sex worker” is just a fancy term for prostitution so I think that deems your argument invalid
Um actually a sex worker is a prostitute, a stripper, a cam worker, a porn star a porn model, a sugar baby so no my fucking argument is not invalid and if a prostitute says “hey man i don’t do x service” THAT DOES NOT GIVE THE CLIENT THE RIGHT TO DO X SERVICE JUST BECAUSE CLIENT HAS PAID FOR A SERVICE AND IF A SEX WORKER OF ANY KIND INCLUDING A PROSTITUTE SAYS NO THE ANSWER IS NO. “NO” DOES NOT BECOME INVALID JUST BECAUSE THE PERSON SAYING NO IS A PROSTITUTE.
What do you expect as a prostitute? In our society prostitutes aren’t respected and while that sucks and it shouldn’t be like that, it is. I think everyone kind of knows that.
So just because society doesn’t respect prostitutes, they saying ‘no’ doesn’t matter? So you think it’s okay for a prostitute to get raped EVEN THOUGH she said ‘no’ just because she gets paid for it and because her job isn’t ‘respected by society’? Because that’s what you’re saying.
No I’m saying that why should someone respect your ‘no’ if you can’t respect society’s ‘no’ to prostitution being wrong. It takes respect to get respect.
This is why I can’t stand feminist.
It’s one of the most misogynist things out there.
dictating how a woman chooses to express herself sexually is misogynistic
it’s also misogynistic to assume that all women undertake a sub position
it’s also heterosexist to assume that all bdsm is heterosexual
please place a sterile bandage on that BURN
The interesting thing about a lot of older “women’s history” is that I think a lot of it seems to be mislabeled as such. You see a lot of stories about “women” supposedly crossdressing, and it’s sort of set as this great example of women fighting the patriarchy—and sometimes that’s the intention—but a lot of times it’s actually transgender men who were misgendered as women at the time because of, you know, cissexism and all. And then they went down in history books as “troublemaking women.” Which is sad, because it both obscures the sheer amount of transgender people in history, a group that doesn’t get enough attention in history as it is, and it also fills women’s history books with this notion that the best way to make a difference in women’s history is to be a man. Which sort of defeats the purpose when you think about it.
