Bonjour @HeadwayUK, beau temps. Any chance you will comment on your promotion of prostitution today and the idea that brain damaged men are so undesirable & other that they wouldn't be loved without paying for it?…
Hi @HeadwayUK the sex trade lobby is constantly saying 'listen to sex workers', this is from 2010 and a prostituted woman: 'Punched in the face, kicked down stairs, bitten, starved and beaten'…
Lots of testimonies here from prostituted women about the abuse @HeadwayUK is promoting:
This is significant @HeadwayUK, 'Women who worked in prostitution have the same number of traumatic brain damage (from beating and kicking to the head, strangulation or beating the head against objects such as the car bonnet) as victims of torture (H¯ılija, Okonnora, 2006; 25)'.…

'An Oxfam staff training document says “privileged white women” are supporting the root causes of sexual violence by wanting "bad men" imprisoned'.…
'However, the charity was warned on Wednesday night that the document, compiled by its LGBT network and seen by The Telegraph, could breach equality laws as it suggests reporting rape is "contemptible".
So Oxfam responds to men in its charity raping vulnerable women by blaming women reporting rape and other women setting boundaries and saying this unacceptable.

'When the law added the legal concept of ‘gender’ to the measure of who is male and who is female, it created an almighty conflict with sex. Sex or gender can be paramount, but both cannot be balanced equally'…
'The birth of Legal Gender; the death of Legal Sex. The Gender Recognition Act....
The Act in essence changed the definition of male and female from a biological definition to a psychological one'.
'By 2007 the Department of Health (DH) Equality and Human Rights Group were already instructing the NHS that “staff should treat individuals whose self assigned gender is different from that assigned at birth as if they had Full Gender Recognition under the Act.”

So @HeadwayUK, what you are doing is part of the renewed Objectification of women, how States are profiting from women as a resource and abuse is industrialised. The disabled men you represent are being used as a shield to push this.…

Hi @FiLiA_charity I have a short essay almost ready on Headway (the brain damage charity) promoting the use of prostituted women as a therapy for disabled men. Would you like it?
I've had an email, they would like it!

1. Thread of Essays on Objectification.
The 2 currently out on The Renewed Objectification of Women. I argue that the language of Objectification (menstruators, vagina owners etc.) is designed to dehumanise women so that we can be exploited as a resource on a global scale.
2. Governments are building in profits from prostitution porn, and surrogacy into tax revenue. Like how men have exploited the earth & natural resources now the abuse of women is being industrialised. How tied to the economy porn is through institutions investing in it.
