I don’t feel that it is anti-feminist to say that sex work isn’t the best career choice for long term success to any degree, beyond more sex work (openly judging a woman’s choice to engage in it is). But there is something to be said for the empathetic nature of the showcase of seemingly genuine intimacy in a public way (which is the aim of some legit actors).
This video gaining 10 million +views in less than 48 hours is evidence of the fact. And something as simple as a first kiss between strangers softens the message of such sex work being “fun” in such a way that hit home for me. I’m not condoning or condemning the choice of Belle Knox; but she is a young (EMPHASIS ON-both) person subject to all the slings and errs (arrows) of public ridicule for any choice she makes that would further reduce her millennial anonymity.
In a time where almost no indiscretionary (new word-I guess) decision is without public presence, choosing to showcase something so carnal as one of the arguably most intimate things between 2 or more consenting adults (i’m sorry Ms. Jackson … if you’re nasty
[an Outkast-Janet mashup reference]), for whatever altruistic purpose, will be met with some equally visceral reaction.
In that same breadth, I wouldn’t be writing this post if someone hadn’t shared Pandora’s playlist (NSFW) with the rest of the class and set a trend of over-sharing with the world as a path toward upward mobility (mimetically convoluted enough for you?-gotta maintain some meta-semblance).
because they’re now caty versions of their former besties’ selves [too much time plugged in-it’s official])
"Women are the only exploited group in history to have been idealized into powerlessness."
Ha … Ha-huhuhu-hahahahaha
