"...What [prostitution/sex work] is is societaly coerced and that makes it slavery."
Then flight attendants are also slaves. I have to wear at least 2 inch heels, pantyhose, even though by the airline's own admission, they are dangerous on a flight in the event of an onboard cabin as they melt to the skin at a very low temperature and by SOP, any threat of onboard fire we should take them off, yet they are required with the wool/polyester blend dress that is horrible in 90 plus degree heat with an acrylic scarf around my neck, which any psycho or terrorist can use as a method to strangle me. None of which are articles of clothing I would wear on my own in the summer. All ultimately because it is the societal norm for what is expected of a female airline employee to look professional. Which ultimately means the airline feels men will appreciate seeing female employees dressed this way and our comfort is irrelevant as how many women care that another woman is wearing an acrylic scarf and pantyhose in the south in the summer?
I won't even go into my other job. Both of which are considered mainstream. Both make the the constant targets of frustrated travelers who want to take out their aggression and frustration on the first available person, which that is often me. Did I cause the blizzard that screwed up their travel plans? Or the thunderstorm? Or the declined credit card? Or their own stupid asses that got to the airport too late and missed their flight? Or the mechanical problems that could cause the aircraft to crash thus delaying their flight rather than risking killing 140 people. Of course who cares about the crew or the airport employees in general. The only concern you ever hear about is how passengers are effected. It's a job. It has drawbacks. If I didn't need the money I would quit both of them without notice.
Bad news to all the feminists who call the straight job such a damn improvement over sex work but I take more abuse working two jobs in the aviation industry than I did as a stripper.
But these same radical feminists are the ones who get to their conferences pissed off about their flight delays, that their hotel room wasn't exactly what they wanted, that they got a ford taurus rent a car rather than a lincoln town car because they paid only for the taurus and didn't get a free upgrade just because they felt they were entitled. The same feminists who rip a new ass to the flight attendant forgetting they are one of 150 passengers, not the only passenger, because the airline discontinued pillows to keep fares down, same feminist who ripped the ticket agent a new ass because she told them they were too late to make their flight or that their flight was delayed because God forbid it was determined by the airline or the FAA for whatever reason it was unsafe for the aircraft to push and they'd rather everyone live than take the risk of a crash. Or the waitress who has to tell them the kitchen is backed up and their meal will be 3 minutes late. The same feminists who feel their conferences about sexual slavery and human trafficking should be held only at 5 star hotels with plenty of costumed employees at all levels of their journey who they consider beneath them to serve them and to be the recipient of all their travel frustration because their day wasn't perfect. Where is the feminist respect for these employees?
These same feminists who think the world revolves around them, who feel that because they have their huge degrees, their big honorariums for speaking, their anthology publications, that they should speak about and for sex workers even though they have never done sex work, the same feminists who feel that sex workers shouldn't have a voice or be allowed to speak because we are speaking about work, they are speaking about slavery. Well, screw that! Even if I am a slave, shouldn't I be heard? And those who arrogantly state that I and other sex workers shouldn't be heard because we can't differentiate sex work from slavery,,,,,,,,,,, that sounds remarkably like oppression to me. Oppression by false rescuers. How exactly does a conference or another anthology help anyone in prostitution more than condoms, more than computer skill training when they want to leave sex work, more than STD education,
God fucking forbid but SWOP East is coordinating a harm reduction based project with a sex worker rights activist org in South America to get condoms to sex workers who can't get them, which I know, here we go, is pro prostitution, pro slavery and all that feminist shit, well, I'd rather see the women in South America stay alive and not die of a horrible disease than withhold resources until they agree to give up sex work. Great, according to TVPRA US Law we can send condoms to sex workers pledging not to do sex work. That's constructive. Ok, now that you don't need it, here it is, greetings from your feminist rescuers en Los Estados Unidos....
