some helpful reminders about sex workers ♥
If sex workers aren’t selling their bodies, what are they selling?
their time, the sexual experience that they’re having/creating, and the products that they create.
sex workers sell a service. Unless they’re selling their own kidneys on the black market, saying that sex workers sell their bodies makes no sense at all.
But…aren’t ppl paying sex workers for…sex..? I don’t understand your logic
if you think having sex with someone automatically means you own their body, i feel so bad for anyone you’ve ever slept with.
let’s see, other service jobs where people are providing a service instead of creating a product to be sold
- sales person in most businesses
- the list goes on and on and on and on
and i’ve never heard anyone claim that these people are selling their bodies or perhaps in the case of highly cerebral services their brains(?) so why is it that people are capable of understanding that people in service jobs are selling a service but think that sex workers are literally selling their bodies and not also selling a service? could it have anything to do with sexism, misogyny, rape culture? maybe the ongoing objectification and commodification of women turning them into objects (products) to be used by others instead of recognizing them as people, actual human beings? maybe? hmmmmmmm….
The East Asian women + colored hair trope
(An extension of extraextraex’s post.)
Looking at the pictures above, it’s pretty easy to find the similarities. East Asian women with dyed purple/blue/red hair, usually in a streak. No matter how you look at this, this is an uncomfortably specific trend in media. Yeah, it looks cute, but after seeing this over and over again, it becomes a boring, racist trope. This originated from a variety of possibilities: the creators trying to “Americanize” the East Asian character, make them more “exotic”, or to show how unique this character is. She’s not a giggling schoolgirl or a delicate lotus flower, she’s different! See, she has a streak of purple hair (god forbid she dyes it any other color), look how radical that is, look at our modern Dragon Lady!
And yes, Knives dyed her hair to look like Ramona, and yes, Sonmi-451’s hair is like that to mark her as a clone, but these characters do not exist in a vacuum. You can justify why a character has a specific appearance, but in the end, this character was created, and contributes to stereotypes no matter the intent.
So the moral of this story is that your Asian character with a strip of purple hair isn’t original. It isn’t unique. No matter how innocent this appears to be, it can be detrimental to East Asian girls, since the characters that look like them have the same exact traits. It’s time to explore different ways of designing East Asian characters, instead of just slapping on some purple and calling it a day.
dont get me wrong i totally fucking love how much tumblr is trying to bring awareness to bisexuality pansexuality and asexuality. but you know what else they need to bring to attention?
- people whose sexualities and romantic orienations dont line up
Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport? This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever. Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do? I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here.
HEY FUN FACT: pole dancing is known as something strippers do because strippers invented it. And that’s okay! It’s okay to have respect for strippers and the hard work they put into what they do! Let’s stop trying to take the stripper part out of pole dancing so upperclass white girls can do it without being ~stigmatized~ because god forbid women be sexual.
Marriage equality is cool and all, but uh…
Trickle down equality, yo!
