A blog about the thread that was on here.
Agree with the comment underneath about anal to vaginal penetration being the perfect breeding ground for a urinary tract infection sad

oh, kitty, kitty, did you answer the klaxon too ?

SabrinaMulhollandJjones Mon 10-Mar-14 21:58:42

Doubt you'll get many takers for that petition here.

I would say try pn - they're the ones who write the quotes quite unashamedly.

I disagree that it's 'whore-shaming' or whatever you wrote. It's 'punter-shaming' and all in their own words.

50 supporters - my oh my, the internet will crash under the pressure of everyone rushing to sign that petition.

Welcome to MN Kitty3Mummy.

What does an sex work activist do, kitty? Genuinely interested here. Are you affiliated to an organisation? Do you get paid? If so, who pays you?

TunipTheUnconquerable Mon 10-Mar-14 22:06:36

I do like the comment on that petition that says it's not representative because it doesn't include 'caring' reviews.

"Regardless of your views about women who offer sexual services for money"

Why are you assuming that anyone has any "views" about women who offer sexual "services" for money Kitty?

The IMP isn't about the women - it's about the men. Why don't we talk about them?

BriarRainbowshimmer Mon 10-Mar-14 22:08:49

I think it's important to understand that this project is dehumanising to women, using blank faces, no names, a price tag

Almost funny.

LurcioLovesFrankie Mon 10-Mar-14 22:13:53

Let me see... Your starter for 10. Who wrote the comments quoted on the Invisible Men Project? Was it (a) a bunch of dungaree-wearing cardboard cutout feminists? Or (b) a bunch of pay-to-rape misogynistic male punters?

And as for "I appreciate many women are horrified at the concept of prostitution and that many women do actually enjoy sex..." BINGO!

You do realise that it's precisely because we enjoy sex, we value other human beings, we want in turn for women to be valued as human beings, that we are horrified at the thought that huge numbers of women are forced by economic necessity, grooming by pimps, trafficking and the like, to put up with a series of misogynist arseholes raping them for money? No? Well, you don't come across as the brightest spark ever, do you?

AnyFucker Mon 10-Mar-14 22:28:53

has this one scarpered already ?

No staying power these people

Kitty3Mummy Mon 10-Mar-14 22:39:05

No, just realised this was a bad idea.

No point in discussing this issue with people like you whose minds are made up.

Your ignorance is astounding and I'm amazed you dare have such strong opinions on something you know nothing about.

AnyFucker Mon 10-Mar-14 22:39:26

FloraFox Mon 10-Mar-14 22:50:50

"Caring" reviews - boak!

Another one bites the dust. Don't let the door hit your arse on the way out.

BriarRainbowshimmer Mon 10-Mar-14 22:51:23

That's right we don't know anything about prostitution here.
If only we were enlightened like you then we would be 100% supportive of men's right to buy women.

CaptChaos Mon 10-Mar-14 22:51:49

Our minds are made up precisely because the vast majority of us do know what we're talking about, either from working with survivors groups, talking to survivors, advocating for prostituted women. That and we understand that women should not be considered the sex class and that vulnerable women should be protected from men who would prey on them.

But, I agree, it was a bad idea for you to post here.

FloraFox Mon 10-Mar-14 22:52:03

Just noticed there at least one pimp on there... How very surprising.

AnyFucker Mon 10-Mar-14 22:52:59

oh, and tell your mate to stop bumping zombie threads. That's a bad idea too.

KinderBoris Mon 10-Mar-14 22:59:04

The blank faces, no names, price tags. <face palm>

They are there for exactly the reason Sabrina mentions.

Also Lurchio. Nail. Head.

trenda1 Mon 10-Mar-14 23:16:42

Kitty is not being paid, but the group doing the exhibition are-

"Linda Thompson, of Glasgow Women's Support Project, is the Scottish Government-funded Challenging Demand Development Officer."

Anyway it's too bad it wasn't an exhibition about horrible things antis say to sexworkers (see link)

SabrinaMulhollandJjones Mon 10-Mar-14 23:18:14

oh another one.

Welcome. You'll find no anti-women attacks here. Just anti-punter ones.

CaptChaos Mon 10-Mar-14 23:19:56

Are you tag teaming?

Sadly a lot of people miss the point of the invisible men tumblr. It's not about what abolishionists think nor even about women's choices, it's all about what the men think, their choices.

LurcioLovesFrankie Mon 10-Mar-14 23:20:07

Yawn - the klaxon is going to lead to another invasion, isn't it? Thank heavens it's my bedtime...

In fact, if we all just went to bed, they'd have no-one to wind up, and with a bit of luck these threads will drop out of active convos, the punters will lose interest, then we can have an interesting conversation once they've all gone.

SabrinaMulhollandJjones Mon 10-Mar-14 23:22:38

None of them ever do the distance.

Do your worst punters. Oh sorry, sex worker advocates.

Latin name: pimpus pimpus -the lesser spotted pimp.
