Personal and Professional Stories of A Working Human
Think about this. I’m a sex worker. I’ve been raped. Does that bring you to laughter? Is it funny that I was raped when I wasn’t a sex worker? Or is it funnier when I was raped as a sex worker? Do you like raping people because what they do is illegal? Like migrant farm workers or sex workers? Is it funny because they are….I’m just not sure what’s funny about it.
I know, people are going to be like “get a sense of humor” or “why do you have to take everything so seriously.” Yeah and they are going to laugh at me for being pissed off. Just like they’d laugh at someone being raped apparently.
I actually have a pretty good sense of humor but that might actually be why I don’t think rape jokes or specifically raping sex workers, is funny. Because I do actually have a good sense of humor. But you know what makes me so angry? That I got more shit for saying that a rape joke was wrong, than the person who made a rape joke.
Why do women get raped so much and so often? Because of those priorities that say that me pointing out a rape joke is more inappropriate than a rape joke.
