Unpacking Blatant Reversals: first in a series



The Nordic model 

1) criminalizes men who buy sex, not women who sell it;

and

2) is based on rational analyses (not irrational fear*) of 

3) a male sexuality centered around entitlement to use female bodies as masturbatory objects,

and

4) men's view that women's labor is to meet their personal desires at any cost to ourselves, 

5) both of which mentalities are centuries old.

*Dismissing women's evidence-based political analyses as irrational fear: also a centuries-old tactic.

THE PROSTITUTION OF CHILDREN: NAME THE DAMN PROBLEM


From here

THE PROBLEM HERE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ANY CHILD'S DECISION-MAKING ABILITIES. THE CHILD IS NOT THE PROBLEM.

THE PROBLEM IS THAT 1) ANY CHILD WOULD BE FORCED TO CHOOSE BETWEEN BEING FUCKED BY A STRANGER AND DEATH, AND 2) THAT MEN HAVE THE CHOICE TO PART WITH THEIR MONEY TO FEED CHILDREN OR FUCK THEM, AND CHOOSE THE LATTER. IF YOU CAN'T NAME THAT AS A PROBLEM, YOU ARE DEAD INSIDE.
