Here’s a thought-provoking article by Katha Pollitt (@KathaPollitt) calling out the Left on their support for prostitution. Go Katha!
“It’s one thing to say sex workers shouldn’t be stigmatized, let alone put in jail. But when feminists argue that sex work should be normalized, they accept male privilege they would attack in any other area. They accept that sex is something women have and men get (do I hear “rape culture,” anyone?), that men are entitled to sex without attracting a partner, even to the limited extent of a pickup in a bar, much less pleasing or satisfying her. As Grant says, they are buying a fantasy—the fantasy of the woman who wants whatever they want (how johns persuade themselves of this is beyond me). But maybe men would be better partners, in bed and out of it, if they couldn’t purchase that fantasy, if sex for them, as for women, meant finding someone who likes them enough to exchange pleasure for pleasure, intimacy for intimacy. The current way of seeing sex work is all about liberty—but what about equality?
I thought the left was about that, too.”

PLEASE NOTE: This article was written by a feminist Leftist and is not criticizing ALL people who identify as “Leftists” or “feminists,” only those who support “sex work,” because, as the author correctly points out, such support is inconsistent with the stated true ideals of both the Left and feminism.
