Swedish anti-sex-worker model

From Freedom Porn
Jump to: navigation, search

Many fundamentalist feminists (some of whom call themselves “radical feminists”) parade around Sweden as the model for all the countries to follow. The fact that Swedish sex workers keep saying that this model is shit does not concern anybody.

Although Freedom Porn is an anti-capitalist site, it does support all sex workers (prostitutes, porn models, dominatrices, etc.) regardless of why they do what they do.

Sweden prides itself in the fact that they are “protecting” all the sex workers by criminalising those who buy sex or those who offer protection to the sex workers (those commonly referred to as “johns” and “pimps”). Many feminists, in Sweden as well as in other countries, have began propagating this as the model for all the world to follow, because they have hoped that this would counter the critique that anti-prostitution rhetoric is nothing more than a well camouflaged hatred of those who chose to work in the sex industry (and often hatred of different expressions of sexuality). However, sex worker advocates have not been consulted when the plans to criminalise buyers and protectors were made, sex workers were simply told that everything that took place was done for their protection and that they must feel happy about this.

This situation is not about Sweden alone, it is about the whole world. The fact that fundamentalist feminists have stopped pushing for the complete criminalisation of prostitution is a positive development, this means that the constant demands from those who support freedom that sex workersʼ well-being be the first and the only concern when coming up with the plans that deal with sex work are paying off. However, it is a perversion of the empowerment of sex workers, who are being given protectionism in exchange for their freedom without sex workersʼ consent.
