You can ask me questions on my Formspring here.
But I also want an option that’s testing ONLY. Some kids don’t show up for class not because they’re slackers, but because they’re obsessed with their work in the lab, or they have better things to read, or their teachers are awful — or they just cannot stand to be condescended to for one more minute. Let’s acknowledge that, just as some kids just crumble under test pressure, some kids cannot maintain the finely orchestrated, four-year-long social performance that is required to conform, make nice, and fulfill the arbitrary requirements of dozens of adult strangers, some of whom frankly should not be teaching, or who like to penalize students who challenge them.
The real message of anti–sex work feminists is, It’s the women working against sex work who are the real hard workers, shattering glass ceilings and elevating womanhood, while the tramps loll about down below. …. When sex workers are “rescued” by anti–sex work reformers, they are being disciplined, set back into their right role as good women. This isn’t just the province of large NGOs; one-woman rescue missions have popped up online and in megachurches, projects that claim to support themselves through the sale of candles and jewelry made by rescued sex workers. These jobs may technically exist outside the sex industry, but without a supply of rescued workers, there would be no cheap labor, no candles—and there would be no projects for the rescuers to direct.
