This is not directed at anybody or related to any particular incident, just something I was thinking today, following various things that have happened over the last month or so, and wanted to share.
It is tough being an escort. And unfortunately escorts aren't always shown respect in this world, by clients and various others.
But I think escorts deserve respect here on E-I.
I don't expect all the members of this community to go around with kid gloves on when it comes to escorts. For example, if there is a heated debate and an escort is dishing out harsh criticisms, she has to expect she may get the same back.
But there are times when we find a user of this website being abusive or even threatening towards an escort, for example calling her a "slut" or a "whore" in a very disrespectful way. And I really don't think this is acceptable.
I can't change the world, but E-I is my little domain, and I want escorts to be shown respect here.
So please could everyone remember at all times that all escorts deserve respect here. It's a big bad world out there, and it can be a tough life being an escort. Escorts should not have to put up with people not being respectful towards them here, on a website they essentially pay for.
And if you are an escort and you are not being shown respect here, let us know. And if you are someone who doesn't show respect to escorts, don't be surprised if we come down on you like a tons of bricks.
