DANIEL RIERA | CANDY MAGAZINE #2


Look, if posing naked were empowering, then the rich men who run the world would be lining up for it. We would be awash in naked dick shots of Warren Buffet and Bill Gates and Barack Obama; magazines would be filled with male politicians and financiers and moguls with their bits hanging out. Softly lit, perhaps; head coyly tilted, bunny tail on the ass. Power.

[Pro-sex-trade] Men… are able to equate sex with a service or commodity because they don’t think a woman’s actual desire for sex is necessary to the sex act. It’s the way men have always defined heterosexual sex under patriarchy: women are holes to be fucked by men, and thus their feelings – be they fear, pain, unhappiness, boredom or revulsion – while they are being penetrated are irrelevant. If men actually believed that a woman’s independent desire to participate in sex was a necessary condition for sex to take place, there would be no market for prostitution.

Girls learn to love and have sexual feelings in a position of low status, and the eroticization of powerlessness is a normal part of the construction of femininity.

I’m so angry that the sex-pos movement is encouraging women - who already experience internalised misogyny and learned submission - to celebrate sexualised inequality and to embrace their internalisation of female sexual masochism as “empowerment”. It’s so manipulative and scary and disgusting. And men are fucking loving it.

What liberals don’t understand is that 90 percent of oppression is consensual. As Florynce Kennedy wrote, ‘There can be no really pervasive system of oppression… without the consent of the oppressed.’ This does *not* mean that it is our fault, that the system will crumble if we withdraw consent, or that the oppressed are responsible for their oppression. All it means is that the powerful— capitalists, white supremacists, colonialists, masculinists— can’t stand over vast numbers of people twenty-four hours a day with guns. Luckily for them and depressingly for the rest of us, they don’t have to. "People withstand oppression using three psychological methods: denial, accommodation, and consent. Anyone on the receiving end of domination learns early in life to stay in line or risk the consequences. Those consequences only have to be applied once in a while to be effective: the traumatized psyche will then police itself. In the battered women’s movement, it’s generally acknowledged that one beating a year will keep a woman down." -Lierre Keith

feminism does not have to support the industry of sex work, but at all times needs to support those who are sex workers. that’s it. fin. support ya sisters that are just trying to make it in this shithole world
