You would think as an exited prostituted woman, well as a woman, I would be used to name-calling. But there a new invented word that sends out poison.
It is has a word that has no meaning, but is used to shame and degrade abolitionists.
It is wrong to use that kind of language against anyone who bravely fights for the human rights of prostituted – but to used against those us who have exited the sex trade is insulting and deeply ignorant.
I cannot understand how it possible to accuse anyone who has somehow manage to exit the sex trade of being afraid or hate others inside that world.
But it not about any type of phobia – no it plain and simple speech use to shame and silence us.
We are speaking truth to power – and that power wants more than silence, it wants us wiped from existence.
Whorephobia is linked to another made up word – transphobia, fear and hate of transsexual.
Both are words not used by the vast majority of the communities they claim to represent – I have never any prostituted person say whore or whorephobia as some kind of rallying cry, the same with vast majority of the transsexual community.
No these words of hate are used by an elite minority, of mainly white men, academics, and sex trade profiteers.
These are groups with hands on power, which they have no intention of letting go or even having the dignity to share.
These are groups that are used to being in control, and hold that control through brainwashing, emotional blackmail, real or threatened physical violence, humiliation, shaming, sexual violence, and murder.
These are highly entitled groups, who have no or very little understanding of oppression.
The use of whorephobic to shut up exited women, especially, comes from this position of power.
There is no empathy for the conditions that the prostituted have to live in.
There is little or no concern for the mental/sexual/physical welfare of the prostituted, hell, though who call us whorephobic never care or even notice that the prostituted are thrown all the time everywhere.
Ironically, those who accuse us – the exited – of being whorephobic of murdering the prostituted or at the least allowing to die, by our support of the Nordic Approach.
This is a sick way of silencing us – for it the sex trade lobby that promotes a system that is killing the prostituted every single day.
It is the sex trade lobby that would push prostitution indoors, and hides the vast of violence that occurs to the prostituted.
It is the sex trade lobby that refuses to acknowledge the daily murders or disappearances of the prostituted – usually blaming any and everything except the violence of punters and sex trade profiteers.
They will call us murderers – just because we stare down what it is and was to be prostituted, how death stalk our every moment, and murder became a non-event coz it was too common.
We are called murderers for seeing beyond their lies – and placing the blame on the punters and sex trade profiteers.
We see the truth, so they accuse of being murderers.
I need to say I have never met anyone who exited the sex trade who hate or fears those who are still inside the sex trade.
They are us, and we are them – so it would self-hate and self-destruction to be what they say is whorephobia.
When we speak out, we speak for all those still inside prostitution, we speak with empathy, we speak from a place of deep love, we are holding their hands in times of fear and confusion.
All of us know our pasts are never over whilst the sex trade exists.
We know in our hearts, that our pasts rapes/tortures/death-threats are everyday for the prostituted now.
We can never hate or fear our prostituted folks who can see no exit, and have to survive by blocking out emotions and thoughts of the outside world.
For that was us, we remembered all too well that deadness, that refusal to be any more than a robot.
Their present was our past.
We can never forget, we do not want to forget whilst we know their suffering is still happening.
So how dare you say that we are whorephobic – you have never walked in our shoes.
