Hi! I’m a sex worker. I hear you’re interested in issues about sex work. If that’s true, talk to a sex worker. Don’t ask some random social justice blogger. We are here, just like we’re everywhere else. Don’t ask other people about our issues and, for fuck’s sake, don’t speak for us.

If you are not a sex worker, do not speak for them.

If you are not a sex worker, do not speak for them.

If you are not a sex worker, do not speak for them.

If you are not a sex worker, do not speak for them.

Hey, guys! I’m still around. Between my moving and it being fuh-reezing, my motivation to stick my arms out from under the covers has been nil.

What a strange illusion it is to suppose that beauty is goodness.

17% of cardiac surgeons are women, 17% of tenured professors are women. It just goes on and on. And isn’t that strange that that’s also the percentage of women in crowd scenes in movies? What if we’re actually training people to see that ratio as normal so that when you’re an adult, you don’t notice?

…We just heard a fascinating and disturbing study where they looked at the ratio of men and women in groups. And they found that if there’s 17% women, the men in the group think it’s 50-50. And if there’s 33% women, the men perceive that as there being more women in the room than men.

Seriously, go listen to this.

#cleopatra with the nose knocked off. I wonder if people still think she was European like the movies betray…

I still think it’s one of the most desperate things whites have done to blacks and to black history. The disrespect is outrageous. They came to our country and mentally could not fathom how these black civilizations could be so great. They literally rode through our lands and shot the noses off of our statues. Why? So that the statues would no longer resemble the African people and they could LIE about the origins of Egypt and countless other civilizations. It was a widespread practice. It’s why statues of Pharaoh’s and their wives have no noses. It’s why the Sphinx has no nose. When I was in middle and high school, we were taught that the noses had fell off due to time and poor craftsmanship! They have literally tried to teach us that our ancestors were shitty builders of noses just to hide their malicious destruction of our heritage. European fears of African peoples had to come from somewhere. I want to know what part of the history is missing. There’s something that they don’t want to be told.

The shade is real

i was taught that the noses fell off as well and actually continued to believe this. in retrospect this makes no sense, considering greek/roman statues pretty much always have intact noses whereas egyptian ones are always conveniently missing theirs. thank you for pointing this out to me, i hadn’t even made that connection until now.

austerehesychasm:

just think for a minute how ridiculous it would be if you worked in an industry where people actively and openly tried to shut it down putting you out of work, demonized you for doing it then pretended to be doing it to be helping you, while you’re saying “no, I need to work. I know its not perfect but it’s my job, why don’t you support me to make it better if you care so much?” “no i dont agree with your choices” like how angry would you be? how ridiculous is that?

that’s what anti-porn anti-sex worker “activists” do to us every day so
