Judge appears to blame victim in sexual-assault case: Globe and Mail

 

Quote:

In the 2006 incident, Mr. Rhodes and a friend met the 26-year-old victim and her friend outside of a bar and headed off into the woods outside of Thompson, a town of 13,000 about 760 kilometres north of Winnipeg, the paper said. He and the victim kissed; later, when they were alone, Mr. Rhodes had sexual intercourse with her without her consent at the side of the highway.

At trial, Mr. Rhodes maintained that he believed the woman had consented.

Finishing School for Prostitutes

People get all up in your face about rights for sex workers and I wholeheartedly agree there needs to be legislative help, such as raising the legal age of workers in all sex related industries, but working girls also need to start helping themselves. Sex workers need to meet the straight world halfway if they want the straight world to really listen.  Working girls also need to learn how to protect themselves by minimizing their own risks and get training from peole who've been in the biz and know all the risks as well as how to be a high-end companion or sugar baby to get more respectful clients.

Being Female

Quote:
When I think about being female I think about being loved. What I mean by that: I have a little exercise I do when I present my work or speak publicly or even write (like this). In order to build up my courage I try to imagine myself deeply loved. Because there are men whose lives I’ve avidly followed—out of admiration for their work or their “way.” Paolo Pasolini always comes to mind. I love his work, his films, his poetry, his writings on film and literature, his life, all of it, even his death. How did he do it—make such amazing work and stand up so boldly as a queer and a Marxist in a Catholic country in the face of so much (as his violent death proved) hate. I have one clear answer. He was loved.
