  3. I get email from women [her named edited for privacy].

My reply:

With all due respect, this is a sexist response to one woman speaking her mind. Why do you need to criticize my appearance to make your point? Why twist what I said about “control” to make it seem like I have none?

The control I speak of is having to contend with people who presume to be able to speak for sex workers better than we can speak for ourselves. Thanks for proving my point.

  5. “Only when human sorrows are turned into a toy with glaring colors will baby people become interested – for a while at least. The people are a very fickle baby that must have new toys every day. The “righteous” cry against the white slave traffic is such a toy. It serves to amuse the people for a little while, and it will help to create a few more fat political jobs – parasites who stalk about the world as inspectors, investigators, detectives, and so forth.”

    – 

    The Traffic in Women by Emma Goldman 1910

    oh you know, 1910.
