Proponents of the "Nordic Model" say they want to help sex workers.

Imagine if they did they the same claiming to "help musicians" (a thread):

- So, you can still be a musician. But we want to arrest anyone who may try to buy a ticket to your show or buy your album... (1/5)
- Say what?

- Yes. We want them to be terrified to support you or your music. Also we wanna arrest anyone who might drive you to a gig, or help you with your music.

- How is that helping musi...

- It is. We mean well. (2/5)
- Oh an any of the people trying to buy your music will be charged an enormous fine, will be shamed in front of their community AND (get this) will be made to attend "Music Fan School" where people who hate music will try to reprogram them.

- What? (3/5)
- Yes. We are not again music per se. We just think people shouldn't pay musicians for it. The music their monogamous partner plays at home with them in the parlor piano should be enough. It's also blessed and special.

- You guys are weird and you are NOT trying to help us (4/5)
- How dare you? Who's making you play that music? You can't possibly be selling music of your own volition. Musicians who exchange their God-given gift for money are clearly not in possession of free will OR are able to consent.

- You are nuts.

- And you're TRAFFICKED!

This kind of blatant "white-ism" is endemic to Argentine public discourse.

If you meet any Argentine who starts going on about how they are "more European," tell them to fuck off and walk away.

Also, gringos: "I wanna visit Buenos Aires because it's so European" — also racist.
Argentine society is DEEPLY in denial about its shameful racism.

"Negro de mierda" (literally "shit n****") is a commonplace insult that has only recently started being socially shunned.

And, of course, critics of the term are accused of being "PC" and "woke" by the racists.
Argentine culture is rich and fascinating. Buenos Aires is a very interesting city.

Neither of those things have anything to do with "being more European."

That's always been code for "white" in the most vile racist sense.

For those who are asking: Twitter froze my account for 12 hours and penalized me with "a warning" because of my reporting on a religious organization (initials E.C.) who is behind the current anti-Pornhub campaign. (1/2)
If you google public record information on the leader of that campaign (initials L.M., a public figure) plus the words "Justice Defense Fund," you can take a guess as to why I was "reported."

Twitter punished me for literally doing my job.

Might this be my annotated copy of the (bonkers bananas) religious manifesto co-written by the founder of Exodus Cry explaining their real motives for trying to outlaw porn?

Might there be more about this coming soon? Image
I think @NickKristof and Senator @JeffMerkley should have done their due diligence and read Benjamin Nolot’s “Babylon” before platforming their War on Porn messaging unfiltered...
Here’s a teaser from my deep dive into the (bonkers bananas) religious manifesto co-written by the Exodus Cry founder.

The book includes an ad for the ministry’s Trump University-style “education” grift IHOPU.

(No, I’m shitting you not — IHOPU) Image

If you don't think we are witnessing a WELL-FUNDED, 100% COORDINATED "War on Porn" being waged at the state and corporate level in the US, Canada, UK and Europe, please believe me when I tell you that I literally cannot keep up with covering the news because it's CONSTANT rn
Please listen:

- The current War on Porn started in March when religious groups NCOSE and Exodus Cry abandoned their last strategy (to declare phony "public health crisis" around porn) and switched to "Section 230" and "Destroy Pornhub" ... (1/2)
- GOP Politicians (+ Dem enablers) jumped on "state censorship" under the guise of "Section 230" reform ALL SUMMER AND FALL leading into election.
- Kristof's NYT article 10 days ago was the beginning of the ALL HANDS ON DECK attack timed to Euro and US law proposals (2/2)
