Pues como ya le doy mucho trabajo desagradable a mi querida @SalagreNuriaEn1 aquí os traduzco este pedazo hilo sobre #prostitucion
Al final hay un enlace a otro hilo con lo "mejor" de los puteros sacado de un documental en que los hombres no se han cortado en dar razones.
Al lío
Ojalá tuviera tiempo para ofrecer un análisis exhaustivo de cómo los medios alemanes presentan #prostitution post liberalización de la industria. En esencia, casi siempre es pornografía de miseria o un anuncio apenas velado; a ambos les encanta la objetivación voyeurista.
Censuré el rostro de ella aunque su anonimato no está protegido en el video. Pero mi punto clave es: ¡el video fue producido por nuestra tv pública! Y está lleno de imágenes objetivantes, tópicos laxos sobre la "profesión más antigua" y preguntas que propias de un niño de 12 años

If you care about productive discourse regarding #prostitution stop telling women they're abolitonists because they hate their husbands "being seduced" at brothels. Playing women against each other while again letting men get away with it scott free is disgusting.
Might as well say "you're anti prostitution because no one wants to fuck you". This is such misogyny. Most of us are anti sex buyer and pimp because either we or someone close to us endured sexual violence (often in a sex trade context) or we can imagine how awful it would be.
Yes wives who blame the woman in prostitution for her partners infidelity exist and some use degrading language towards women. But men really gotta stop framing women's politics as a whole as being about wanting to control them sexually. This is such a patriarchal reversal.

Since we're once again comparing #prostitution to retail jobs, it doesn't hurt to have a list of disproportionate physical risks of being in the sex trade. This is not to shame women in it or to suggest women's bodies are "broken", but to highlight why these comparisons lag.
Since the recent comparison has centred on cashiers who get arthritis, it's helpful to know that women in the sex trade are at significant risk of chronic joint, back, jaw and wrist pain. The cause of which we don't want to talk about: Sex buyers heavy bodies & aggressive motions
Sex buyers know about this physical damage, btw and talk about it - or rather "complain". "She couldn't do xy cause she's got x pain, so annoying." Trigger warning: Rape and dehumanization.

German sex buyer: "I might be able to find [a woman consenting to my kinks], but I like very young beautiful women and because im older I can't get the 20 year olds no more. Im not so young anymore, kinda let myself go." So you admit they don't want you? What do we call that?????
He'd fit right into this series: Take a photo of yourself why don't you. So unashamed to be touching someone who does not want you. This is what hundreds of yours of a culture permitting sex buying does. If he wasn't paying youd call him a rapist.
Or take this Aussie. Are we cool with men doing this? Do old men with excess income have a right to access the bodies of young impoverished women? Why the hell is this a hard question for some? The sex trade maintains a sphere of male power setting women's rights back decades.

Australian sex buyers are having a normal one, casually discussing the mass sexual exploitation of Asian women and poor foreign students, as well as how to get away with raping children. All on legal websites. But hey, "customers" like any other - right? internationalsexguide.nl/forum/showthre…
Also, sex buyers looooove what the #sexwork movement is doing. If they're loving you, you're not in the business of putting power into the hands of the seller. You can bet on that. Deregulation which is the current trend down under mostly benefits buyers & pimps and they know it.
Amazing that being pro #prostitution is cast as the anti-racist position when sex buyers are out there talking like this 👇 Women are not cuisines. And, duh, sex buyers know the women wouldn't touch them if they didn't desperately need money. Sex buying is classist violence too.

#Camming is not safe. 1) because you can be recorded and those videos are shared against your will. 2) you get pressured into degrading and dangerous acts by the men who pay and of course into entering #prostitution. Solidarity with women in camming!
Every woman I know who has done camming says you get real close to meeting up with one of the men who has been paying you. Money gets tight, payments dwindle when you're no longer seen as "fresh" and you think "if I just do it once will it be so bad?" Camming is not a privilege.
#Camming =/= #prostitution, but there is a huge overlap between the two. And the idea that you're physically safe in camming because the buyer can't touch you is sadly wrong as the tragic case above illustrates. Men who pay for camming can hurt you and can even kill you.

Germany has lost the plot on #prostitution so completely that we are seriously after 20 years of legal free-for-all for sex buyers debating whether maybe letting them gang-bang women in a state of advanced pregnancy might be just slightly medically and ethically questionable? 🤦‍♀️
And I'm pissed off at both sides here because the right is only interested in this because they care about unborn children, i.e. they're also currently restricting our abortion rights, and the left just cares about men's pleasure and pretending that it equates to women's freedom.
But the #prostitution of heavily pregnant women is not a matter of personal opinion. And it's also entirely unrelated to questions of sexual agency, e.g. when a pregnant woman chooses to have sex for her own pleasure or sex to help induce labour. It's simply extremely dangerous.

#MindGeek allowed its platform to be used for #prostitution.
Like now defunct online marketplace #BackPage (which was indicted along with its
founders and seized by federal authorities), and #Craigslist’s now defunct “personal”
pages, MindGeek knowingly permits its platform
to be used to facilitate trafficked
prostitution.

Langer Thread, CN #Prostitution
1/
In meiner feministischen "Bubble" gibt es viele, die von "#Sexarbeit" & von "der sexuellen Selbstbestimmung der Frau" sprechen, wenn es um Prostitution geht und das Thema aufgeworfen wird.
2/
Der Alltag des Gros der Prostituierten in Deutschland ist aber weitab von irgendeiner Selbstbestimmung, weder sexuell noch finanziell noch irgendetwas. Ich bin sehr dafür, dass Menschen, die selbstbestimmt ihren Körper für sexuelle Dienstleistungen anbieten wollen,
3/
das tun können, ohne Frage. Das darf aber nicht auf Kosten derjenigen gehen, die täglich unter den unsäglichen Bedingungen von #Straßenstrich, #Laufhaus und #Bordelle'n leiden. Und das sind die Allerallermeisten.

For 3 years I've wanted to write about why men murder women in the sex trade. I've been waiting for the publication of a study on the subject in Germany that finally come out a month ago. Stay tuned for my summary. Its painful but necessary to know who, when, where and why.
The state sanctioning the sex trade does not prevent lethal violence against women in #prostitution. From hands-off essentially decriminalized Berlin to the nearly prohibitionist German South, here is who is killing whom, when, where, how, and why. ellyarrow.wordpress.com/2021/03/29/who…
Murder in the sex trade is about as old as the industry itself. In Germany paying for sex has rarely ever been expressly illegal, yet sex buyers make up more than half of perpetrators (a lot of serial killers are buyers). It's not illegality of the trade that makes men kill women Image

Ich arbeite 12Jahre in der #Sexindustrie und seit 8Jahren als Aktivistin für die Rechte von #Sexarbeitenden. Ich fühlte mich nie gedemütigt & ausgebeutet, wie jetzt von der Journalistin Nathalie Suthor, die mich für einen Beitrag über #Prostitution für @3Sat angefragt hat. THREAD
Der Beitrag lief gestern bei #Scobel unter der Rubrik Wissenschaftsdoku, was blanker Hohn ist, weil sie eine Aneinanderreihung von Falschaussagen und Behauptungen der #Antiprostitutionslobby ist. Nathalie hat sich verhalten, wie es mir gegenüber kein #Freier jemals gewagt hat:
sie hat mich unter Vorspiegelung falscher Tatsachen angelockt, meine persönlichen körperlichen, geistigen und psychischen Resourcen ausgebeutet, sie ist respektlos mit meiner Lebenszeit umgegangen und hat mich sowie meine Kolleg:innen dann (öffentlich) gedemütigt und denunziert.

PrimeTime 20.15h bringt @3sat heute ein Special zu #Prostitution, für das auch @Johanna_Weber_ und ich @KristinaMarlen_ ausführlich interviewt wurden, sowie auch erscheinen. Nur: Wir kommen in der Ankündigung ***NICHT*** vor. (Thread) presseportal.de/pm/6348/484811…
Die Journalistin versprach einen ausgewogenen Beitrag und interessierte sich scheinbar für einen #Feminismus, der #sexpositiv ist und die Frage, warum das #Hurenstigma alle #Frauen trifft, die sexuell aktiv sind und sich nicht der bürgerlichen Normen fur Weiblichkeit verhalten.
Ich konnte dazu viel sagen. Die Tatsache, dass wir nicht einmal in der Ankündigung erwähnt werden, spricht von #Respektlosigkeit gegenüber #Huren, die selbst sprechen und sich nicht als Opfer begreifen. Es darf uns nicht geben; Wir sollen unsichtbar bleiben. #Stigma

Doubles standard at German Aids Aid who have worked alongside the pro prostitution lobby: They will promote condom use in a prostitution context in South Africa naming sex buyers as the cause of high infection rates but campaign against mandatory condom use in brothels in Germany
It boggles the mind and throws dirt on the painful history of the AIDS epidemic which was falsely labelled a "gay disease". If you want to destigmatize people living with HIV/AIDS and people in prostitution you wouldnt promote people playing Russian roulette with their health.
Fun fact: New Zealand has had rules about condom use for both parties in prostitution as well as brothels displaying signs promoting condom use since it introduced fully state sanctioned prostitution. Germany took 15 years to realize this was necessary after introducing its law.

Thread on what #sexbuyers say about Asian women in the legal German sex industry. If we leave out the #sextrade from our critique of #racism, we will never dismantle it. #StopAsianHate. TW: Racism, misogyny, violence against women. (All images are stock photos) Image

15 octobre 1942 — ECHEC A LA RELEVE IMPERIALISTE !

"70 années de parlementarisme ont pu cacher en partie aux ouvriers et paysans de France la nature rapace et sans scrupules de leur impérialisme ; les événements actuels dévoilent complètement son rôle vis-à-vis de la "nation".

⚠️⚠️⚠️Trigger warning for what I'm about to say - please mute if you'd like to avoid hearing about extreme #violence #vaw and #misogyny on your timeline. ⚠️⚠️⚠️
When people advocate for legal #prostitution I think they have a much too vanilla view of what it is men pay women to do or endure. For all the times' abolitionists are called "prudes", it's really a lot of "sex pozzies" who don't understand the extent of what they're endorsing.
Yes, a lot are just your regular father-of-two cheating on his wife or angry over a divorce looking for a woman maybe his own age, but usually younger, for some usual oral on him, then vaginal in various positions, it's over when he orgasms. Bad enough, but it gets worse.

Today for the 1st time ever heard a German pro-#prostitution activist (self-identified "hobbyist dominatrix") mention the New Zealand model and saying we should adopt it because it eliminates human trafficking. No, it only eliminates human trafficking convictions. Big difference.
German's rates of convicting pimps are already continuously decreasing since we introduced our own highly deregulated liberalized model back in 2002. We went from 151 convictions in 2000 to 32 in 2011. Bureau of Criminal Investigations says convictions decreased, rates did not.
Meanwhile, New Zealand was doing the following to make it appear as though it didn't have human trafficking: They didn't have a law against domestic sex trafficking, which helped to ignore the fact that 1/3 of prostituted women were once commercially exploited girls.

Another case of a woman murdered in legal German #prostitution: Sebat Alimanovska (25) from North Macedonia was murdered on August 27th, 2018. The murderer was serial killer Timo M., who kept the corpse of another prostituted woman in his garden and another one in his attic. Image
Another woman murdered in legal German #prostitution: Leyhan Veith (40) was killed on September 25th, 2020, also by serial killer Timo M. who kept several corpses on his property, finally discovered by the next tenant, who has been lighting a candle to cope & remember the victims Image
Another case discovered of a woman murdered in legal German #prostitution: Alexandra Belhaj (24), was murdered on June 3rd, 2008. Her killer was never found, but her alcoholism had been exploited by rich men in the area, who celebrated "sex parties" and were the primary suspects. Image

New research on the history of legal #prostitution in Germany focussing on the murders of women in the sex trade by @manuelaschon and Anna Hoheide. I am proud to have helped with translating this work that shines a light into the darkest corners. digitalcommons.uri.edu/dignity/vol6/i…
Key findings on the murders of women in German legal #prostitution: The daily fear of violence, potentially lethal, remains real for women, despite less fear of arrest by police. The primary perpetrators are sex buyers. The state does not care to collect official statistics.
Critics will claim the German law is a form of legalization (tight regulation forcing some women into illegal status) while one should support New Zealand's decriminalization (minimizing laws specific to prostitution). False distinction: German law on the left, NZ on the right...

This is an old article, but nonetheless: The New Zealand Prostitute's Collective handed out flyers to Chinese students normalizing prostitution, motivating some to enter the industry, which they are actually not legally allowed on a student visa! Christ... nzherald.co.nz/nz/chinese-stu…
I personally can't really fathom how this pamphlet motivated anyone to enter the sex trade because it is victim-blaming garbage and at the same time skirts around the reality of the industry so much you don't even know what it is really trying to tell you... Image
It must have preyed on the poverty of many students, including exchange students struggling to get a job while studying abroad. This is absolutely a vulnerable situation & I am disgusted the NZPC told them this hot garbage instead of warning them they can't legally do this in NZ!

Government report on #prostitution states: "We do not have a problem with child trafficking". One paragraph later "a significant number of sex workers first sold sex as minors". Me: 🤨🤨🤨
That's what you get when denying the connection between adult & child commercial sexual exploitation even though the evidence is right in front of your eyes. Domestic child trafficking is still trafficking. It's not sex work. It's not kids selling sex. It's not underage sex work.
I really really don't wanna hear the mantra of "sex work isn't sex trafficking" when every evidence of clear definitive coercion (e.g. CHILDREN) is neatly rebranded "sex work" by the folks who espouse this. You're the ones who have a problem distinguishing. You really really do.

Okay this might seem pretty arrogant but after 5 years of self teaching on prostitution statistics and law I get so frustrated in conversations with people because they don't have the basic legal definitions of relevant terms to make meaningful arguments (eg legal def of pimping)
They say: "But pimping is illegal." And I say: "No it isnt. It's legal to tell a woman when to 'work', for what prices and to force her to be naked in the brothel at all times. Taking 49% of her money is legal. And in practice those limits aren't even stuck to as gov confirms."🤦🏻‍♀️
They say: "Forced prostitution is illegal." And I say: "No it isnt. The only way she can charge a pimp for being exploited is if she can prove she was forced to do specific 'service' for specific men. But you can get rich off of a woman and never meet that definition."

Sharing this great article again written by @DanaLevy on why prostitution never was and never will be a #joblikeanyother. Argued today with a woman insisting that the same protections could be used in brothels as are in scientific labs... Ehm, no. nordicmodelnow.org/2020/03/12/pro…
There is no demand for prostitution where the woman wears goggles, a face mask, gloves, or just a straight-up hazmat suit which would put it in line with worker protection regulations regarding such basic things as body fluids. There's only like 3 dudes with a rare fetish here.
May I also remind you about how "infection safe #prostitution" was supposed to look like in Germany during the last reopening after 1st lockdown? Hardly anyone used face masks and stuck to "massage only". One pimp even suggested this dehumanizing trash:
