It was certainly interesting to hear about historical politics regarding prostitution. I found a lot of things frustrating about this talk. But what struck me is that they just never name the problem: men. Patriarchy. Misogyny.
For as deep as they went, nothing is mentioned about the fact that men are buyers and women are the product. That we’re the sex workers while men largely aren’t. And women aren’t out here soliciting for sex yet men are.
And for a much as they talk about “economic independence” there’s no criticism of capitalism and the idea of people selling themselves as the highest form of capitalism should not even happen. Why do we entertain this?? Because me working my 9-5 job working with photoshop is in the same realm as sex work am I right 🤡
These people are trying to normalize dangerous systems that are built upon our oppression. Honestly, I would be very interested in what the pod hosts thought about this.
