One by one, they came forward, finding safety in their staggering number and a world that was finally ready to believe them.
Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

What's so amazing is that it took a man's voice, a comedian's, to raise the issue and expose it. While you may be overwhelmed and even bored by this news story, it is important. Many excellent insights and quotes.

Alexander Yakovlev's comment, June 2, 9:20 AM
I like how it says that it becomes epidemic of children being without their dad. But also, it is really upsetting that there are no real man in their community. Also, there are no work and nothing to do. Because of that women have to do everything. This is another example of gender differences and where women have to do everything in order to survive.

NakedTruth.ca: What is a SWERF?

NakedTruth.ca: What is a SWERF? | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it
SWERF stands for Sex Worker Exclusionary Radical Feminist.

You know her. She calls herself a feminist and her life work revolves around eliminating sex work jobs.

She thinks men should all be ashamed for being men (naturally visual beings).

The name explains itself, but it is interesting to note that the SWERF mentality IS slowly dying like causes steeped in hatred usually do.

How To Identify If You Are a SWERF

Perhaps you are wondering if YOU are a SWERF. Perhaps you hang around with people in the rescue industry, or you have a good friend who has been saying a lot of things about "prostituted women" lately.

Perhaps you have been CALLED a SWERF and you're wondering

Laura Brown's comment, July 28, 6:08 PM
I may be a SWERF because I do still think there is something wrong with people selling themselves to provide sex. I'm not a radical feminist but I do think our culture is still very much male dominated. You can see it very clearly when you look at the type of humour on TV. Not much of it seems that funny to me. But, I'm not a guy. Anyway, if sex weren't for sale would men ask for it in more accepted ways or would they choose to become aggressive and take sex instead? That would be up to the type of man they are and the culture they grow up in.
