    Angry Columnist claims sex workers can't be raped!

    You may have already heard about this, but if you haven't, we suggest reading while you are sitting down... preferably with a stress ball or a punch bag nearby so you can let your frustration out. A columnist at the Chicago Sun-Times has come forward to say that sex workers can't be raped and that it should actually be classed as theft!

    It is a ridiculous idea, and yet she is going out there and publishing this in the media! So what can we do to change attitudes like this out in the world, or is simply no hope for some people?

    This piece is particular nasty, saying that sex workers deliberately put themselves in the situation and non-sex workers are real "rape victims". Sorry lads, but no-one puts themselves in the situation to be raped. The rapist is a monster, who should be put away.

    This writer is the type of person that gives journalism a bad name. Her viewpoint shows absolutely no understanding of a woman's rite to say NO. Every person regardless of gender or profession has that rite. Two words describe her, FUCKING IDIOT.

    She really should have gone to rape centres/rape support services/sexual assault clinics and done her research before writing such a naive, uneducated article. The same applies to her editor also for allowing said article to be published.

    Even more stupid than the commentators that say sex work is the same as rape.

    If I'm not mistaken marital rape only became a crime in this country sometime in the last twenty years.

    The editor that allowed this to be published should be charged with a hate crime. I know the Americans love their free speech but this is ridiculous. Germany won't allow pro Natzi statements, rightly so, and this Gould be treated in same way
