    Cop We're all part of the Pimp Lobby, apparently

    Great piece by Frankie Mullen on Vice.

    Where's my PimpCopter?

    Across the globe, a dangerous, elusive group is gathering force. People call them the Pimp Lobby. The lobby refuses to show its true face, hiding instead behind such apparently benevolent fronts as grassroots activist groups, academics, student unions and sex worker rights campaigners. But make no mistake, the lobby's intention is the same: to protect vast gains; to turn the world into one giant brothel.

    ...

    Meanwhile, calls for full decriminalisation of prostitution and requests from people in the industry that they be referred to as "sex workers" have been slammed as cynical obfuscations designed to deceive the public and keep pimps in business.

    Some, however, question the existence of this shady lobby, and instead wonder if the label is just a useful way to discredit loud-mouthed sex workers standing up for their beliefs.

    Turn the whole world into a giant brothel. Now, that is a conspiracy theory!
    Personally, I blame the Illuminati, the masons and opus dei.

    Good article.
    Quote from comments "Sex work and being empowered are totally empowering which is very hip. I like the idea of sex work being totally normalised and boring like working in an office and everyone being poly and trans and it just being no big deal. Also, it's so cool that all these new feminists are like the punk rock telling old dinosaurs like Julie Bindel that 'actually I like sex and it's not dirty and you can't tell me what to do' ".

    Great article. Bindel is one hate-filled bag of shite.
    2014 in Northern Ireland:

    Number of reported attacks on sex workers 70

    Number of sex trafficking cases ZERO
