Quote of the Day: on liberalism

A few years old, but still as relevant as ever.

There’s a sexist and racist trend going around liberal circles lately that says there’s no such thing as sexual abuse anymore for some, usually not-white, women. What would be called rape or sexual harassment for Global North white women is being called uncompensated sex work for Global South black women. What used to be called economic coercion is called economic incentive in the new liberal whoreticulture. For another example of this at work in liberal magazines The Nation and Counterpunch you can look for Debbie Nathan’s recent articles where she claims, based on the testimony of male cops, that teen girls are lying about being forcibly pimped through Internet escort services and terrorized into sex slavery.
