No, not this kind:
Rural Japanese, not Urban Chinese
The story itself is so-so, but a very interesting conversation thread has developed has developed on Glutter. Your brave tdaxp as the lonely defender of women’s economic rights, the left-puritans soundly against:
Interesting that “treating women as equals” seems to involve treating them as children: Women can do and wear what they want, but if they attempt to earn money (prostitution) or dress (office clothes) in a way that is “impure” — it is up to a man to teach her better morality!
I’m promptly of accused of being an extraterrestrial john…
Oh please. Which planet are you on? None of what you are saying has anything to do with equality. Why don’t we try and give all the women who are poor and from little villages really good education and a damn good job and see how many of them “choose” to be prostitute.
And who the fuck is talking about office clothes, and having a man tell her she is impure? Who said her boss is a “man” anyway.
You’re so full of it and not know a damn thing about “equality” you purport to be talking about. That’s not equality, that’s just plane old fashion sexist John talk.
which of course is irrelevent:
What does my status as a john or not have to do with the validity of my arguments?
and further, Glitterbug’s views:
Why don’t we try and give all the women who are poor and from little villages really good education and a damn good job and see how many of them “choose” to be prostitute.
Heck, give me a “damn good” trust fund and see how long I “chose” to work for other people at all 🙂
