Throwing women in jail for consenting to sex - along with the trend of treating and labeling women as subhuman because of the kind of consensual sex they have definitely hurts women.
Because Murricans (and humans in general) have a problem with deciding that consensual sex is only okay if they’re okay with the person’s motives for having sex. Sex to have a baby? Good.

I don’t see how incarcerating prostitutes can help them in any way. They are the victims or they are there by their own decision. If they are victims, being a victim is not a crime.

So, supporting a d-bag like Trump will get you in the proverbial doghouse permanently, but taking blood money from one of the worst dictators in Africa is merely a fuckup? I remember a time when artists were called out and hounded by liberal media, for performing in South Africa during the Apartheid years. In the age… Read more
