On those pesky intimidating women - girlonthenet

On those pesky intimidating women - girlonthenet | Consenting Adults | Scoop.it
When you complain about 'intimidating women' are you genuinely intimidated? Or do you just want them to shut up.
Christopher Bowness's insight:
"So, next time you meet me in a crowded bar, or even a dark alley, before you police my behaviour consider whether you are genuinely intimidated by me. Are you worried that I’ll punch you? That I’ll shout at you? That I’ll humiliate you in some way? Or, in telling me that I’m intimidating, are you actually just telling me to shut the fuck up?"

Issue 24 - August 3rd 2013: Why I changed my mind about sex work

Issue 24 - August 3rd 2013: Why I changed my mind about sex work | Consenting Adults | Scoop.it
SA Jones for Overland: I feel uneasy about sex work, but here's the thing: it's not about me. It's about the safety and dignity of those who are actually involved in the industry
Christopher Bowness's insight:
"...."But how would you feel if your daughter chose to be a sex worker?" my girlfriends ask. The answer is, I would feel very uneasy. But if she made that choice my first concern is for her wellbeing and human rights, not my ideological purity. Her bodily integrity is inviolable regardless of the number of sexual partners she chooses to have (or not have) and in what shape or form. I would want her to be part of, and not apart from, the greater community. Her choices respected. Her rights protected. I want that for Tracy Connelly, too. I want it for every woman."
