Hey so umm.. Do you know what that fic is where a tragic accident leaves the Sheriff in a coma and Stiles becomes a male prostitute to pay his medical bills and then Peter is a bad cop and kind of forces him to have sex with him and is super possessive and also Laura is there and at the very end it becomes Sterek? 😅

Yes! Know it and love it. :)  It’s called Constant Knot by JaymesParker and you can read it here, on AO3

“Everywhere, prostituted people are overwhelmingly poor, indeed normally destitute. There is no disagreement on this fact. Urgent financial need is the most frequent reason mentioned by people in prostitution for being in the sex trade. Having gotten in because of poverty, almost no one gets out of poverty through prostituting. They are lucky to get out with their lives, given the mortality figures. It is not unusual for the women in the industry to get further into poverty, deeper in debt. … Disproportionately, people in prostitution are members of socially disadvantaged racial groups or lower castes. In Vancouver, prostituted women are First Nations women in numbers that far exceed their proportion of the population. In India, although caste is illegal, there are still prostitute castes. Women members of the Nat caste, for example, are selected to prostitute by men in their families; men of this caste are supposed to prostitute women to higher caste men. As this example suggests, the structure of who is in prostitution often derives from colonialism and persists after it. No one chooses to be born into poverty or to stay in prostitution in order to stay poor. No one chooses the racial group or caste one is born into. No country freely chooses to be colonized or the post-colonial social pathologies that so often organize this industry. These circumstances, from the uncontested evidence of who the prostituted disproportionately are, most powerfully determine who is used in this industry. These circumstances are not chosen by any of them.” - (x, speech script)


Catharine MacKinnon @ Nordiskt Forum
(November 2014)

“Catharine A. MacKinnon is a lawyer, teacher, writer, and activist on sex equality issues domestically and internationally. She is Elizabeth A. Long Professor of Law at the University of Michigan and from 2008-2012 was the first Special Gender Adviser to the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court. Widely published in many languages, her dozen books include Sexual Harassment of Working Women (1979), Feminism Unmodified (1987), Toward a Feminist Theory of the State (1989), Only Words (1993), Women’s Lives, Men’s Laws (2005), Are Women Human? (2006), and her casebook Sex Equality (2001/2007). She conceived sexual abuse as a violation of equality rights, pioneering the legal claim for sexual harassment as sex discrimination in employment and education; with Andrea Dworkin, she recognized the harms of pornography as civil rights violations and proposed the Swedish Model to abolish prostitution. Her approach to equality has been largely accepted in Canada and elsewhere. Representing Bosnian women survivors of Serbian sexual atrocities, she established legal recognition of rape in genocide, winning with co-counsel a $745 million verdict at trial. She works with Equality Now, an international NGO promoting sex equality, and the Coalition Against Trafficking in Women (CATW).” - Catharine A. MacKinnon, Harvard Law School

Drake’s human trafficking buddy is out of jail.

Last year, Travis Savoury aka Baka aka Not Nice was charged with six crimes in connection to human trafficking after a 22-year-old woman was forced into prostitution and then made to hand over all of her money.

Baka just gout of jail and Drake is really excited about it.

I totally understand being happy your friend is coming out of lockup, but y’all Drake was out here talmbout declaring a holiday for when Baka gets out and that is just tacky and gross on all levels.

There’s this trope that comes up in movies and TV shows, but which you probably assumed never happens in real life: Some guy befriends a teenage male, finds out he’s a virgin, and decides to get him laid. So they go to a brothel. It happened in Game Of Thrones, Rome, and The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button, to name a few examples. It’s a popular plot point specifically because that’s such a weird and gross thing to do.

But in some cultures, it’s a rite of passage. We talked to “Marcos,” who unwillingly lost his virginity to a prostitute in El Salvador at age 15, and we learned that …

I Lost My Virginity to a Prostitute: 6 Terrible Realities

That awkward moment when you suddenly suspect that the reason male legislators don’t enact Nordic Model-type laws (making it illegal to hire a prostitute or sex worker but not to be one) is because then they and/or their buddies would be criminals.

I have watched with some interest an element of organized prostitution women adopt language from the organized labor movement. They argue that prostitution is just another job, albeit a relatively high paying one. They call pimps “managers” and johns “customers.” They say that what is wrong with the “business” is that it is illegal, or, as in the case of Nevada, that the State controls prostitution. They claim that what is needed is a union to bargain for wages (already high, they say), hours (already good, they say), and working conditions. If wages and hours are already good, the issue must be working conditions. These same women argue that what is better about prostitution than other jobs for women is that prostitutes have “control” over what they do, what they “choose” to do. They don’t explain why prostitutes can’t control pimps and johns who hurt them right now. They slide past hard issues and blame them on the illegal nature of prostitution.

The fact that prostitution is illegal does not explain why men sexually murder women and children for sex. The fact that police do not seem to care about dead prostitutes, or other dead women either, does not explain why men do it. The fact that some police officers are corrupt and brutal when they harass and arrest women for prostitution is a secondary issue.

… None of this addresses the system which requires male sexual access to women and children at all times. The analysis exhibited in the “business-as-usual” presentation of prostitution is one that does not in any way challenge the harm of prostitution itself. If workingclass people had no analysis of capitalism, then what we would have is what this element of organized prostitution has: no structural challenge to the status quo. Men must have this sexual access to women and children. (Why?) Fringe benefits like workers’ compensation, demands for no more arrests, or somehow resisting torture and murder are OK as far as they go, but they do not challenge the system of male supremacy of which prostitution is the ultimate systematic expression. Trying to make an inhumane system more humane with reformatory adjustments is like spitting in the ocean: I’m not against it, but it doesn’t do much.

Lori: After my mama passed they would call me the head lady. 

BW: The head lady?

Lori: Yeah. You know, people just want some head some time. They give me a few bucks to give them head. Well, I was dressed up this one time, going to see this man at a motel. He was gonna take me to a club, show me off a little bit. I get to the motel and he won’t open the door.  The motherfucker thought that my ass was starting to have feelings for him, more than the little $20 he was giving me. Just wouldn’t come out of the motel. So I’m there all dressed up. Stole a white man’s truck and everything.

BW: *laughing* You stole a truck?

Lori: I did. It was a bad ass truck!

BW: How did you steal his truck?

Lori: He was a white guy I’d met on Fulton Industrial, wanted some head. Took my ass all the way to Carol county. What’s the name of that place? B word. Nothin’ but high end crackers, but they country. 

BW: *Laughing* Bremen?

Lori: *Laughing hard* yeah, yeah, you know. So, anyway I had this truck and I was looking  good. Had on my little dress with the back out and everything. Guy wouldn’t come to the door but there was this other guy sitting in his truck in the motel parking lot and he offered me $100 to get with him but I couldn’t do it. 

BW: Why not?

Lori: Because I was scared that I wasn’t the woman that he thought I was. I was used to people giving me a little money here and there for some head but $100… I wouldn’t do it. I didn’t recognize myself as being worth that much so I couldn’t take it. He saw $100 in me in that red dress and I just couldn’t see it.
