    Thumbs down Government runs the news

    Anyone see that recent Buzzfeed article about an-ex stripper?
    It’s called “How My Childhood Led Me to Stripping” and here’s the link. https://youtu.be/5pvSj4v2MTA

    It’s a bit of a coincidence that this video and her story were shared during this shaky political time. Her story, which was yes very touching, and her non profit organization heartfelt, both seem to be used as an agenda.

    If if you don’t want to watch the vid: basically she had a rough childhood that she states that her childhood led her to stripping and how she was sex trafficked by her pimp from childhood. Later she says that she found God and that helped her to leave stripping.

    This is language and narrative leads all non-sex workers who watch this story to believe that strippers need saving, strippers hate their lives and that we also are all being sex trafficked. The media is making us seem like we all are either doing something wrong or fearing our lives. What do you think??

    In buzzfeeds defense, they have made positive videos toward sex workers too. I'll agree its interesting that the negative video comes out right around the FOSTA/SESTA acts.

    If you look at other very popular youtubers, like Philip DeFranco, he actually covered why FOSTA is a garbage act.

    Yes, yes yes. I agree 100 %. We have to be STRONG in order to stay true to ourselves.

    The people in charge know that when you financially empower women,we are able to begin to take care of ourselves emotionally, and we begin to wake up. When we wake up, the world wakes up with us. Of course there are people trying to put us down. It fucking works, is the shitty thing.

    We have to be stronger than the propaganda. We have to make sure that we work on ourselves so that no one can bring us down, and we have to begin to get together and lift each other up in real life, not just the internet. We need to support education and growth and SELF LOVE in our sisters, sothay we are empowered and don't fall into the trap of destructive self hatred.

    I don't care how much leaving stripping g ever helped a person . Stories like this are destructive and justify violence towards strippers and sex workers. Stories like this reinforce shame dogma and brainwashing by religious cults that keep women weak.

    We don't need stories like this. Stories like this make sure strippers stay marginalized and keep us isolated and small and ashamed.

    A lot of girls do get into stripping because of bad circumstances and have pimps and have a generally awful experience working as a stripper and clearly shouldn't be doing it. It's not my situation and i'm not really interested in what these girls have to say because it doesn't apply to me but I don't know why they shouldnt have the right to share their story.

    I feel really bad for this woman, that she was raised with such neglect that she didn't have more options than to be a stripper with a pimp boyfriend.

    I'm happy she got out if that was the right path for her.

    Most of us who post on here are happy with our career choices and don't share the feelings that this woman has about the adult industry.

    Side note- since I work in the Midwest I do sometimes run into strip club workers who push religion or try to interfere with the lives of dancers. Just warning you that there are those types in the club, even though they probably should know better than to do that.
