NB. This is not hearsay, I am an eyewitness to serious discrepancies Rachel Moran’s account and I have put this on oath . This means that if you believe I am lying you should go at once to your local police and make a complaint against me for perjury, which is a serious crime.
It wasn’t that bad, in fact it was very similar to a comment I had made on twitter a few weeks earlier…but I had not even seen the post it was commenting on until I wondered why ON EARTH I was getting traffic from Moran’s blog.
(I still don’t think I have actually read it. Try not to judge me, I am genuinely allergic to bullshit, AND to polysyllabic, malapropriated intellectual pretentiousness, and I fear for my own health, otherwise I would read it intently, cross my heart).
It was obvious to me, from her response to the fake post that, apart from wanting to identify me, she found the fact that I had no interest in her blog at all distressing, so, I decided I would spare anyone the trouble of having to comment on my behalf this time. In case she feels my comment requires editing (perhaps to remove my notorious typos, or even add a few more big words to bring my use of language to her own standard?), I want you to APPRECIATE the time and effort she puts into editing it, so here are screenshots as it awaits moderation:
…and here is the (copy/paste, typos and all) text to save you having to read through screenshots:
I had a few minutes spare so I thought I would save you the trouble of posting on this on my behalf for attention this time, as you have in the past.
You made a BIG mistake with me you know. As far as I am concerned you could have lived your lies and raked in the money and attention to your heart’s content without me saying a word to expose you (I probably wouldn’t even have noticed) AS LONG AS YOU WERE NOT ADVOCATING HARM TO INNOCENT, HARDWORKING WOMEN. Bit of a catch 22 for you though, because Ruhama and “Turn Off the Red Light” would never have backed you at all UNLESS you were advocating harm to innocent hardworking women to suit their agenda, would they, so I suppose it is all moot.?
Anyway, the first thing you need someone to point out to you is that you are not omniscient, no more than anyone else you literally have not got a clue how other feel about, or react to anything. You do not know how the women who really sell sex feel and react, you do not know how clients really feel and react, you do not even know how your fellow fake survivors feel and react, truth be told.
What I find hilarious is that even in your own lies, you are at pains to stress that you have barely known any sex workers at all, let alone closely, and yet you present yourself as some kind of expert on their innermost feelings…what is your explanation for that? Telepathy? An involuntary electronic interface with the human mind Android app?
Something else you need to know is that how the women who sell sex really feel about their work is absolutely none of your business to speculate upon until they choose to tell you about it, and will never be any of your business to assert without mandate, in their absence, under *ANY* circumstances.
What do you think happens to women who sell sex “because the circumstances of our lives have left us with no other viable choice” if you destroy, or even tamper with that last option? Do you think they eventually get the taste for despair, destitution and homelessness, or even worse, if you can only force them into it for long enough?
In the name of “education”, if these cruel laws ever pass, what say I get some of those worst affected to explain to you, face to face, exactly how much harm they have suffered because of them?
NB If we had thought we could get 8 to 12 clients every night on the street we would have crawled joyfully to work on our knees singing hymns of praise to the entire pantheon. At £240 a night (1992 rates), heaven knows who might have joined us (Bertie in ladyface? Doesn’t bear thinking about, does it, but it might have kept him honest!) Indoors 8 to 12 clients would have put most women on a one day week…didn’t anyone ever tell you, before you write fiction you need to do the research to check your facts.
Now, you can delete this, delete it and write something else in my name, as you have done before, alter it, whatever you like but I will be posting the text elsewhere and keeping screenshots.
I am adding in a link to the article Moran was taking a, nigh on, incomprehensible attack of the agenda driven vapours to – In Defense of Johns – I do not pay her any attention, but when a genuine, decent person you like and respect, who has the real experience to know what they are talking about, and the objectivity to analyse it, is seeing the same thing a different way to you it is time to revisit the issue and understand and learn why it affects you both differently.
Anytime you see things a different way to someone you respect is an opportunity to learn, and the day you stop learning you might as well order your coffin.
