Not Being Political
I am not a great fan of career-carers like Julie Bindel etc, they really couldn't give a flying fuck about sexworker rights, it's just to get their name in the paper and carve a career for themselves being shouty about something others won't touch. Rhoda Grant is the same, a countryfile MSP who is concerning herself with city nonsense that she knows nothing about. It's not about protecting sexworkers it's about making a name for herself at Holyrood.
A couple of Twitter friends have pulled me for the use of the words, loony, bonkers etc, yes I think some of the tweets and blog posts are bonkers, full of words even university educated people like me struggle to understand and by the 4th sentence I lose interest. I came into escorting as a way to fund my lifestyle, I fancied being more part time with my job and this was the perfect solution and I am quite happy to stand up and be counted but I am not interested in who is a swerf and who is a terf. I don't even know what they mean and when I mentioned them to my friend Michelle she thought it was something to do with a burger and prawn ring Wetherspoons meal.
I am interested in the struggles sexworkers have on a daily basis but I not interested in reading daily essays about how women have such a struggle and men have privilege. As I discussed with my friend yesterday, the last time I heard the word Privilege being banded about it was when Joanna Lumley was selling car insurance. All these terms are baffling to me and that's not what I use Twitter for, I use it as a marketing tool and to meet unusual and friendly people I probably would never know otherwise. Please don't chastise me for my lack of interest. I am here to escort and be political at times I see fit. I don't need to disect it for a thesis.
