Sometimes, it's just a cigar

This is our truth, tell us yours

.@cruella1 and Freeze Peach.

Well that was an interesting weekend, starting with Kate Smurthwaite celebrating cutting the working hours of dancers, because of poverty is just so feminist, calling a workers co operative pimps, and then telling a sex worker if she cared about rape victims she would quit her job. It ended last night with  with Goldsmith’s Comedy Society realising that an islamaphobic, whorephobic, transphobic bigot might just break their safer spaces policy.

A lot of nonsense is being talked by the usual suspects, and outright lies by Smurthwaite, who claimed that the gig was cancelled due to “security concerns”, disgustingly looking like she is trying to climb on the Charlie Hebdo bandwagon. 

So a few things Smurthwaite and her supporters need to understand.

  • Whorephobia is real, saying we cause, promote or don’t care about rape is not acceptable
  • Whorephobia is real, saying we cause, promote or don’t care about rape is not acceptable
  • Whorephobia is real, saying we cause, promote or don’t care about rape is not acceptable.

Got that Kate? Whatever lies you and your friends are peddling this morning, you need to remember no one forced you to be a whorephobe, no one forced you to block every sex worker on twitter, no one forced you to ignore evidence and prefer prejudice. You are a bigot and if Goldsmiths Comedy Society decided you might break  their safer spaces policy, maybe that’s because, unlike you they don’t find prejudice acceptable. YOu see Kate sex workers are people, we are students, we may have been in that audience, not to protest but to have a drink and a giggle. Your attitudes towards us make any space you are in unsafe.

No platforming used to be a tactic of the left, now it is opposed by left-wing feminists who sound like they walked straight out of a gamergate class on freeze peach. Perhaps Kate you need to think about why your allies and you sound like them?
