Look at how society supports the sex trade

first_imgIn response to Bob Belive’s April 15 letter, “Consider what Stormy does”: It’s beyond ironic that he urges us to completely disregard her because of how she earns her pay, yet he admits to having made a living off her trade by renting “adult” films from his video store. Does the same standard apply to him, then? Is he not worthy because he, too, profited from sex?It’s time, folks, to stop the holier-than-thou rants and look inward to see how our society supports sex trade in all its forms; porn, jobs in return for sexual favors, hush money paid for silence. As long as women can make money off sex, and men in powerful positions pay for it, the sex industry will thrive. As long as men denigrate women in the sex industry and those women who enjoy or promote their own sexuality, men will claim innocence and misogyny, and sexism will reign.Time’s up.

Baby Daithi looking very relaxed after watching Donegal beat Dublin.Little Daithi (Peadar) arrived at Letterkenny General Hospital at 4.04pm on Thursday afternoon.Claire, who is from Slieve Sneach Close in Letterkenny and Odhrán, who is also from Letterkenny, made sure they enjoyed their first real occasion as a family.And just to make it a little more special, the trio bought new jerseys for the occasion as they shouted on Jim and the boys.Odhrán said it was just something special to watch the game with the couple’s new baby who weighed in at 6ib 4oz. “It was just an amazing feeling. To watch the game as a family was something special.“But to watch the lads to go on and qualify for the All-Ireland was just unbelievable.“Getting three tickets for the final is the next problem,” laughed Odhrán. Baby Daithi is spoiled by his grandfather Brian Grant and cousin Oisin HigginsJIM AND THE BOYS ARE ALREADY INSPIRING A NEW GENERATION OF DONEGAL FANS! was last modified: September 1st, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:babyClaire HigginsDaithi GrantdonegalJim McGuinnessnewbornOdhran Grantlast_img read more
