‘Pretty Woman’ is to blame for luring women into sex work. Right.

30 Mar

Everybody told me not to read this exceedingly stupid Mamamia piece alleging the film “Pretty Woman” caused young women to become sex workers by glamourising an industry that can be highly dangerous, but I did it anyway.

My question: how many films glamourise marriage and lure young women into that industry, only for them to become victims of violent partners to the extent that one woman each week in Australia is killed by that partner?

Which situation is the more dangerous for women?

And what are we, that we need to even ask such a question?

And when will Mia Freedman get her bourgeois morality off our bodies?

    It’s two women dead per week on average so far this year, according to records being kept by DestroyTheJoint.

    Well, I was game but the page is a clutter and the thing wouldn’t open when I found it any way.

    In general, the stuff seem nursery level and I’m not talking about kids either.

    nickandrew says it enough, there will be enough intelligent sites involved in more substantial things. Including, of course, this one.
