Prostitution Whore!

OK, really Teresa Giudice's whole table flip speech should be here, because it's a work of art, this is just the most obvious choice. But for your own enjoyment: "I am paying attention! Obviously there has to be something else. It's just not name change and arrested. There has to be something else. Are you stripping? You were stripping. Prostitution whore! You were f--king engaged 19 times! You f--king stupid bitch!"

Prostitution Whore!


15. "The Last Leg," The Real Housewives of New York City There are certain moments in television that will never be forgotten. Aviva Drescher throwing her leg during yet another Real Housewives blowup is one of them. It's the moment when reality TV folded in on itself. It's prostitution whore 2.0, but without any authenticity and triple the delusion. It's a moment so premeditated that the reality of what we were watching -- a 44-year-old mother of four throwing her prosthetic leg at someone in the hopes of gaining fame -- is impossible to ignore. It made us laugh. It made us cry. It made us scared for what society has become. It was, in short, leg-endary.

The historiography of women in early modern Europe often exhibits a curious vacillation between depicting women through some form of proto-feminist lens to showing them as simply minor characters, a phenomenon often derisively referred to as "add women and stir." One of the most remarkable elements of Lotte van de Pol's slender volume is that it does neither of these, while still displaying a kind of empathy for her subjects that is not over-or under-shadowed by the social position of women and/or prostitutes in this century. In her introduction, Van de Pol acknowledges that prostitution enjoys a special legal protection in the present-day Netherlands but otherwise sets aside modern judgments in favor of a rich appreciation of a historical subculture that bears little, if any, relationship to the heavily touristed red light district of Amsterdam today.

Subculture is an appropriate word for, as the title suggests, van de Pol embeds her history of the (mostly) women who practiced the oldest profession deeply within the context of early modern Dutch society. In other words, she does not contrast the prostitutes of the past with the prostitutes of today, but she does compare their situation to their contemporaries such as the image of the upstanding Dutch burgher. The world of prostitution was an integral part of urban life in the early modern Netherlands, though they the authorities were often uneasy with its public...

[3] Réal's personal experiences as an anarchist whore are divulged through a series of interviews between her and sociologist Jean-Luc Hennig. The little black book, which is transcribed at the end of the collection, functions as a centerpiece for Hennig's three sets of interviews. Réal began keeping the book as a way of keeping track of clients, their sexual preferences, and the prices she charged. But also, she sees it as her "revenge." "When I'm miserable, at zero, I reread my little black book and laugh by myself. I say look, they're recorded in here and they don't know it. I laugh! I have a great time!" (42). For this reason, although Hennig sees the little book as a sociological text, he also recognizes it as a subversive text, one that empowers Réal.

[11] Her piece BITCH! DYKE! FAGHAG! WHORE!: The Penny Arcade Sex & Censorship Show begins with Arcade exploring sex work through two characters involved in that industry: a receptionist at a brothel whose name changes with every john who calls and Charlene, a prostitute who talks about her work as work and articulates prostitution not as a moral issue, but as an economic issue, hinting that even marriage, when it is done for money, is a form of prostitution. Charlene tells her audience: "You see, the only woman who is a whore is the one who won't admit that she's selling it, when she's selling. And the only man who is a trick is the one who won't admit that he's paying for it, when he's paying for it" (100). The remainder of the play is an excavation of Arcade's personal history as a self-proclaimed faghag and bitch, describing how she felt rejected by her "immigrant" status, and how the queer New York community of the 1970s taught her it was okay to be outspoken and opinionated. Arcade expresses the pain and outrage caused by the AIDS epidemic that devastated the queer community in the 1980s. She ends by indicting the conservative Right and feminism in her rant against censorship.

The State Council has paid a considerable attention to this work, and has formulated explicit regulations in this regard. However, problems of price confusion, loss of foreign exchange and violations of the law and discipline have arisen time and again in the work of port supply owing to the meddling of different quarters in this service during recent years. With a view to further improving port supply, it is hereby noticed with the consent of the State Council as follows: 1. Ports are windows of China's opening to the outside world. It is of great economic and political significance to do well the work of ship's supply and receiption of foreign and Chinese seamen. For this reason, the people's governments of the localities where the ports are situated and the relevant departments of the State Council shall, proceeding from the general situation, accomplish this work satisfactorily in harmonious cooperation through earnest efforts. 2. The supply of the materials required by Chinese and foreign vessels is a foreignrelated task, which shall be properly centralized. Except the foreign ships supply companies of the commercial system (hereinafter referred to as the foreign ships supply companies) and the supply stations (companies) of the China Ocean Shipping Company, none of the non-designated supply units (including port labour services) and individuals may engage in the service of supplying materials and provisions for Chinese and foreign ships. 3. After several decades' build-up, the foreign ships supply companies have laid a good foundation of manpower and material resources and accumulated much experience in the work of supply. In future, the foreign ships supply companies shall still function as the principal channel in supplying the materials needed by Chinese and foreign ships at ports. In the meantime, the foreign ships supply companies shall further improve their operation and management, constantly raise their efficiency and enhance the quality of their service so as to make the supply work better cater to the needs of the opening to the outside world and the development of ocean shipping. 4. The China Ocean Shipping Company's businesses of supplying materials and provisions at the ports of Guangzhou, Shanghai, Tianjin, Qingdao and Dalian, and forwarding the same to the China Ocean Shipping Company ships in long service overseas is beneficial to the strengthening of the enterprise's own management and the raising of its economic benefits. The China Ocean Shipping Company may continue to supply materials and provisions at the five major ports and forward the same to its ships abroad, but this shall be confined to the China Ocean Shipping Company's vessels. As to whether the provisions supply service shall cover Lianyungang, Zhanjiang, Qinhuangdao and other ports shall be determined by the State Planning Commission through consultation with the departments concerned in light of the development of the China Ocean Shipping Company's fleet. 5. The foreign ships supply companies and supply stations (companies) under China Ocean Shipping Company shall implement conscientiously the rules and regulations of the State governing commodity prices, tax revenue and foreignexchange control, and enhance mutual support and cooperation in their business so as to accomplish jointly the task of supplying ships at ports. The China Ocean Shipping Agency (PENAVICO) shall, in accordance with the relevant provisions, render conscientious and enthusiastic services to the ships engaged in international marine transport at ports. 6. The people's governments in the localities where the ports are situated shall instruct the departments concerned to formulate corresponding port-management measures to tackle the problems existing in the material supply in the port areas comprehensively. The control on ships operating at ports as well as men and vehicles entering the ports shall be strengthened, and illegal activities such as black-marketing of foreign exchange, prostitution, whore-visiting and unlawful business operations shall be resolutely combated and banned. Anyone that has violated the criminal laws shall be handed over to the judicial organs for punishment. 350c69d7ab
