Remember that time the U.S. shot down an Iranian civilian airliner over Iranian airspace, killing all 290 on board, including 66 children, and then refused to apologize for doing it?

"I will never apologize for the United States. I don’t care what the facts are. I’m not an apologize-for-America kind of guy." — Vice President (and then-presidential candidate) George H.W. Bush, commenting on the downed airliner, 8/2/1988

bush was such a fucking asshole

The USA is truly a despicable country. So disgusting and cruel.

Breaking via ABC News: UN Human Rights Council votes to open inquiry into alleged war crimes in Gaza; U.S. is the ONLY “no” vote.

That’s because the U.S. is a direct accomplice to every war crime that Israel commits.

USA, the world’s #1 killing machine.

White American Brutally Assaults Korean Man in a Hate Crime

Shoreline, Washington, USA —

A Korean man, Jae Kang Lee, was beaten and dragged into busy Ballinger Way in Shoreline on October 26. Police said the only motivation for the attack appeared to be the victim’s race.

They arrested Dion Packard of Arlington and charged him with malicious harassment and assault. Eyewitnesses said the beating was unprovoked. Michael Alford was pumping gas when he noticed the attack at a bus stop just 30 feet away.

He said Packard slammed Lee’s head into the bus stop pole and then the man collapsed and Packard started kicking him. The eyewitness said, “It became very scary, very quickly. He said Packard grabbed his victim around the neck and pulled him into Ballinger Way.

Alford said, "It looked to me like he was going to actually throw him into the oncoming traffic." Alford ran out onto the street, waved his arms and said “stop, stop.” Two other bystanders joined him to stop the beating and that’s when the attacker started to protest. According to Alford, he said, "Why are you helping him? Don’t you know this man’s Japanese? Don’t you know what we did for them in Vietnam?"

Dang It Feels Good To Be Different!

Anonymous: Why cant I compare a miserable job at mcdonalds or a job walking through human shit at a waste treatment plant to prostitution? Just because sleeping with men is the last thing on earth that you want to do doesn't mean that others wouldn't be willing to do it for money. You say we should give these women handouts, but the fact is that they will never have the quality of life they have under prostitution; the average stripper makes 125,000$ a year. Allow women to make their own choices.

Source for the average stripper making $125,000 a year? Also, I’m specifically talking about prostitutes, so even if you DO have sources (highly unlikely), they literally have nothing to do with this argument. 

They will never have the quality of life they have as a prostitute? Are you fucking kidding me? I don’t know if you’re ignorant or just a fucking defensive loser, but most women in prostitution DO NOT GO INTO IT BECAUSE THEY ‘LOVE’ THE FUCKING JOB. It is fast money! You don’t need any formal skills to get into it! So it attracts poor women, or college students, or other oppressed groups who don’t have the same opportunities elsewhere. How the fuck does ‘choice’ answer that? There are coercive factors other than plain ‘choice’ that make someone do what they do. It’s ignorant to say that every single prostitute out there chose it because they love it, and there were a lot of other jobs to choose from but prostitution was their calling. No. Don’t play ignorant. I don’t know why the fuck people defend prostitution. This is an article that is from prostitutes, ex prostitutes and academics.

  • Prostitution has the highest murders of any ‘profession’. [x]
  • Prostitution is not a choice. Survivors of prostitution have described it as “the choice made by those who have no choice.” [x]
  • It has been described as a “male social system in place to ensure the satisfaction of male demand for sexual servicing and for objectified sex.”
  • "In one study of prostituted women, 90 percent of the women had been physically battered in childhood; 74 percent were sexually abused in their families, with 50 percent also having been sexually abused by someone outside the family."
  • "Of 123 survivors of prostitution at the Council for Prostitution Alternatives in Portland, Oregon (an agency offering support, education, shelter and access to health services to clients of all sex industries) 85 percent reported a history of incest, 90 percent a history of physical abuse, and 98 percent a history of emotional abuse"

Interesting how anon tell us to “allow women to make their own choices”. Are we stopping those women? Are we threatening them so that they don’t get into prostitution? No! We aren’t stopping anyone from making choices. We are being critical of how those choices affect us all as a class. We are discussing how the disadvantages of prostitution outweigh the positives for all women. No one is telling women not to prostitute. However, saying that a dangerous “job” like this is empowering is untrue for the majority of women in prostitution, and it needs to stop.

Labeling a dangerous risky profession that only benefits men as “empowering” totally erases the numerous disenfranchised women who did not have a choice.

we rly are kind and loving to one another
