When I wrote in a previous post, that some tortures are confronted by the Left and some Feminists, I mention how often animal’s rights campaigners use images and words of torture to further their cause.
This technique appears to be very effective in sympathy and the right amount of anger.
But then animals are innocent, animals are cuddly – animals can portrayed as worthy victims.
What would happen if I or other Survivors of the sex trade shows graphic images of the day-to-day tortures in the sex trade.
What if we shown images of murder victims who happen to be women and girls from the sex trade.
I would imagine that would taken off damned fast as offensive – when part of the reason it taken off is because it must not be believed.
I have interested that recently a campaign has started about “crushing” – which is the killing of small/baby animals by crushing them with stiletto shoes.
Of course, this is appalling. It is pornographic imagery, it is unacceptable violence.
But, it is also easy to support the outlawing of that – especially as it is cute animals being killed. It is a kitten, not a locust or a rat.
Where are the horror and huge campaign round the torturing of women and girls in the sex trade.
Why are there so many excuses made for these tortures to continued.
Women and girls in the sex trade are tortured to death on a mass scale, and that continue unnoticed.
It is made that it just a hazard of choosing that lifestyle – women and girls in the sex trade never have the privileged of being seen as innocent victims.
But then, they are not cuddly or cute.
No, it is considered that the vast majority of women and some girls just provoke the men to torture them – and if they do die that is pass off as an accident.
How can it be an accident to sexually torture someone to death.
Unless there is a gun to the man’s head, he does not have any need to fuck, buy, sell, torture, own, strangle, batter or kill any woman or girl – just for sexual thrills.
But, it will go on and on, as long as his violence is made invisible by saying that she deserved it.
I get so angry that the torturing of women and girls in the sex trade is so low a priority in groups that I used to imagine cared about humans rights.
I cannot make women and girls in the sex trade cute and cuddly – but I can demand that their lives count.
