Legalisation of prostitution is not a mere structural decision, to be made as we play our political games; valuable lives are at stake – whenever the South African government gets confronted with that policy serious consideration ought to be made about the consequences of their decision.
In her words, Rebecca puts forward a plea on behalf of the prostituted:
I would consider myself as left-wing – but the Left try to make it impossible to an abolitionist and fit in.
Too much of the Left is made of male-thought, and in this thinking it not surprising that the Left has always justify the sex trade, and ignore the reality of life for the prostituted.
I am tired of everyone letting the left off the hook – I tired of waiting for the Left to get on board with abolition – I tired of men who Leftist making their porn stash and their consumption of the prostituted is somehow better than right-wing men who do exactly the same.
In this post, I will speak of the many leftist cliches that have said to me, or I have read, or had fed to me by the media.
Much of the poison-speech by the Left is the language of pimps and punters – men who are not pimps and punters parrots their words without questioning.
I was consumed by many Leftist punters who justify all their tortures – I had profiteers selling me who imagine they were on the Left, hell they were sexual outlaws, they were empowering women, they were model-day freedom fighters.
I write to the Left, for my heart is exploring with pain and grief – silence round the Left betraying the prostituted class is killing the prostituted every day.
We must look into the language of the Left and say why it controlled by men who want the status quo of the sex trade, we mustn’t turn away because they may be our allies in other areas.
Maybe if i go into some of the common myths that the Left spread.
The major one is that if you unionise the sex trade, then it will be fine and dandy.
I agree with unions for workers – but there we the major flaw – being embedded in the sex trade is not work, the prostituted class are not workers. They are in the conditions of slavery, of having their human rights stripped from them – they are not workers.
To frame it as work, where all that need to be done putting in basic health and safety regulations, all that need to be done is to get a shop steward who go to the sex trade profiteer and speak of working rights for the prostituted.
Think a little, and you will see this is nonsense.
When there are unions for the prostituted – they always are dominated by the profiteers, punters and those who support painting the myth that the sex trade is safe.
Unions that exist do not include the prostitute who is trapped in a brothel, do not include women in the porn that is daily torture, do not include the under-aged prostitute trapped in a room with lines of men consuming her.
No, unions are not for the ordinary and average woman or girl – for those unions have no intention to stop the routine rapes, the routine beating ups, the routine throwing away of the prostituted.
No, the purpose of these unions is to whitewash away all the normal male hate and violence that underpins all aspects of the sex trade.
These so-called unions are all about protecting punter’s “rights” – so rape is made invisible or the fault of the individual prostituted woman or girl, violence is disappeared into the language of S/M and it said she must have consented, and the ordinary murders of the prostituted are not mentioned without saying maybe she was too weak to read the body language of the murderer and run away.
Do not back any sex trade union – they do not give a damn about the prostituted, they care about pimps and punters.
It is a union run and controlled by managers, but more by managers who view the prostituted as goods and never as humans.
Your belief in unions is killing the prostituted every day.
I will speak and remember how Leftist punters spoke to me, how they justified turning me into their f*ck-toy, whilst pretending they were better than those nasty right-wing punters.
I was consumed by punters who claimed to be into human rights, punters who were vegan and said they would no living creature, those who deeply cared about politics and freedom for the oppressed.
These punters would sexually, mentally and physically torturing me, and also preach all this sh*t to me.
I would see punters who had brutalise me and other prostitutes on marches, in meetings or part of liberal religions – fighting with all the might for rights and dignity of all humans.
That when I learnt the lesson I have never lost – these men did not fight for the dignity and rights of the prostituted foe we were not and cannot be classed as humans – we were just goods for them to use to consume and throw away.
We were not given access to human rights, we were not expected to want human dignity, we were never considered worthy of the good fight for freedom.
I am crying too much – so end here.
Please question your Leftist views if they discard the prostituted class.
