Nothing turns on a girl more than good fight choreography
this is true
followed one of my bamf-iest facebook friends onto this post about comics
and i was basically trying to help explain how you can see something is problematic and still enjoy it
and now some idiot is there like “how could you not like wonder woman’s costume but still like her stories? it doesn’t make any sense”
how stupid do you have to be?
Read it over.
Let those words resonate in your mind.

I wonder why Laverne Cox was left out of the Time 100. Oh wait, I know.
Meanwhile, Miley Cyrus makes it on the list.
Careful, honey, it’s loaded,” he said, reentering the bedroom.
Her back rested against the headboard. “This for your wife?”
“No. Too chancy. I’m hiring a professional.”
“How about me?”
He smirked. “Cute. But who’d be dumb enough to hire a lady hit man?”
She wet her lips, sighting along the barrel.
"Bedtime Story" by Jeffrey Whitmore (via 01012012)
Honestly, this is nonsense. First off, I’m all for sex workers, it’s not shameful work, and should not be vilified. However when you choose any job where your likeliness is on a television or computer screen (ex. Movie star) you give up almost all privacy in the outside world. If you have a problem with this, then you should have thought more critically before deciding to get stuffed on camera.
Well, that lack of privacy is due to a demand that the public sets, and not a very respectful one at that. Everyone knows that we have absolutely no business knowing what a celebrity looks like at 8 AM in a grocery store. We’ve eaten that shit up for years, long enough to convince ourselves that these people are *choosing* to have their personal lives invaded every time they step out of the house.
More importantly, outing me as a sex worker is nothing like outing someone as a ‘movie star’. I wouldn’t be at a higher risk of being assaulted or verbally abused because someone decided to let the party know that I was in a coming of age indie film. I’ve had to completely stop going to certain areas of my county because my ex boyfriend told everyone what I was doing for a living. People I thought were friends started sending me messages on Facebook like they were setting up an escort. Someone who sexually harassed me 3 years ago said that my line of work proved I was over exaggerating what happened. My friend’s family completely stopped talking to them because someone in her town found videos of her and decided to tell anyone willing to laugh at her expense. She had to move.
People who work in any form of entertainment are going to have to deal with being ‘known’ in some sense, I can agree with that. Using that as an excuse to share information that could put that person at risk, that’s just selfish gossip. Some people do not realize how dangerous it can be to out a sex worker, which is exactly why we tell people how dangerous it is. It would be nice if we weren’t always met with “well, you agreed to it when you signed up”. I hope you have a better understanding of the consequences we’re talking about.
The “you signed up for this” mentality practically mirrors the “she asked for it” mentality and the astounding number of people thathold beliefs that sex workers “deserve” to be ostracised from their families and friends, barred from potential career options, deal with unwanted sexual advances, sexual harassment, rape, physical assault or even death is more than enough to warrant our right to have our career choices withheld from certain people.
There is a difference between ‘expect’ and ‘accept’, which I think Ashe is constantly having to repeat herself on. Sex workers are not idiots: we know what will come our way. This doesn’t mean we are required to lay down and take it. When you become a construction worker, do you “sign up” for potentially falling off a job site and dying? Sure. But you have every right to wear your harness, and every right to take the necessary precautions to protect yourself.
We are protecting ourselves.
wow OP was a douche.
