Following President Trump’s signage of the FOSTA act, the American police state made a power grab that immediately put a lot of sex workers out of business. It also worsened the incel lives of desperate Johns who use their services in an erotophobic culture. FIB and assorted alphabet agencies claimed they were saving women from horrible, profitable lives as sex workers by using the agency’s iron first to close down Arizona-based Backpage.
Surprisingly, one lamestream media outlet is playing devil’s advocate and finally asking questions that never got asked before thugs in blue barged in to arrest Backpage’s purveyors. From AZ Central, an Arizona-based news outlet:
The site had served as a microcosm of a larger debate on prostitution in recent years, and the seizure of what the DOJ called the “Internet’s leading forum for prostitution ads” ignited swift reactions on both sides.
Well, not quite AZ Central. The general public never got to have a “debate” over prostitution. Government officials had that debate for us and didn’t bother to ask our opinion about what they were doing. Local news channels and the totality of corporate controlled media have consistently adhered to an anti-sex, anti-freedom, anti-male, anti-sex worker doxy.
The narrative in the Puritan press following the shutdown was universally as follows: Prostitution evil, Backpage shut down, female victims protected by Big Daddy Government.
Of course, establishment YouGoGrrls who run the Anglobitch plantation cheered the move, no doubt as a way of tightly controlling men’s sexual options in a culture that regularly profits from the financial exploitation of men who are so desperate for love women can make them do just about anything for it. A top Republicrat was front and center in her support for the move.
Anti-sex-trafficking advocates, including Cindy McCain, cheered Backpage’s demise as a blow to an abusive industry.
As usual, Police State USA didn’t bother listening to the women who provide sexual services and the men who purchase them. Even seasoned sex workers say men are desperate for female affection, and are a far cry from the sexual deviants a sexually repressive culture makes them out to be. Sometimes they don’t even pay for sex – but to have someone to talk or to cuddle with. However, working girls had to take to social media to have their opinions heard.
Meanwhile, sex workers across the U.S. and Canada swarmed social media to air concerns rarely heard in political discourse: To them, Backpage’s demise meant the end of safeguards and a reliable revenue stream in a profession that’s not going anywhere.
“They’re devastated,” said Laura Dilley, executive director of PACE, a Vancouver-based nonprofit that advocates for decriminalizing prostitution.
That’s a narrative you never hear on the news. Sex workers having their lives devastated by tyrannical government moves. Much less a narrative that talks about men having another sexual outlet taken from them in a culture in which 80% of men are now “not good enough” for female affection, even from land whales.
The American government never learns. Prohibitions only push banned activities underground. Alcohol prohibition did it. The drug prohibition has done it. And banning prostitution has done it. Worse, the obtuse nature of do-gooders in the police state means they don’t see the problems their actions create.
If sex workers can’t advertise online, they can’t screen their clients beforehand and are forced back out to bars and into the street, Dilley said.
Never is this angle presented in the Puritan press. That sex work isn’t going anywhere, there will always be a demand for it (even more so in the Law of the Jungle Anglo culture of today) and now women who need the money will be forced to ply their trade in riskier ways.
“There’s a lot of uncertainty; a lot of grief and fear,” said Jelena Vermilion, a sex worker based outside of Toronto. “A lot of people are essentially planning to be homeless, planning how to fall gracefully as much as possible…From Friday, a lot of these people haven’t had any calls.”
A Michigan woman who goes by the name Sarah Fenix on Twitter posted a viral thread about how the ability to screen on Backpage saved her from riskier sex work.
Even though women who sell sex say Backpage made them safer, their arguments fell on predictably deaf ears inside the thuggish law enforcement agencies Americans now suffer.
In a press statement, FBI Director Christopher Wray said Backpage’s closing strips traffickers of a key tool. “This website will no longer serve as a platform for human traffickers to thrive,” he said. “Whether on the street or on the Internet, sex trafficking will not be tolerated.”
The product of neo-Puritan feminism and a gynocentric culture, a few fantastic and unrepresentative cases of child sex trafficking were used as a pretext to stop all adults from advertising and seeking sexual services on the web. FIB touted a passel of cases as the “norm” on Backpage, cases which it used to arrest Backpage’s CEO and other members of his team.
Of the 17 victim narratives in the indictment, only three do not mention a pimp or trafficker. Of the three women who apparently posted their own ads, two were killed by customers.
That was the pretext. Never mind the hundreds of thousands or millions of men and women who used Backpage’s service responsibly. Police State USA excels at finding rare abuses of liberty then “cracking down” with oppressive (and in this case, repressive) legal action stripping those liberties from everyone.
It’s the old “trade a lot of liberty for the illusion of security” game that’s been going on since time immemorial. The Founding Fathers of the U.S. warned against falling prey to this tactic of tyrants, but barrel-bellied Americans don’t seem to notice the tightening leash around their necks.
Meantime, Anglobitches and their social engineer controllers have once again been successful in tightening their grip on the supply of sex in an attempt to make male demand of it benefit them more and more financially. It won’t work. Men are already calling the bluff, and would rather go MGTOW, end up alone, or flee to less erotophobic cultures rather than betting the farm on some pasty tail.
Why sex workers and incel men allow themselves to be abused and controlled like this by an oppressive government remains beyond my comprehension.
