sudden death of The Exile, Russia's angriest newspaper

про закрытие прекрасной газеты Exile кровавой гебней.

Ну и до кучи, юбилейный отчет о посещении 9 проституток
Марком Эймсом, главным редактором сей прекрасной газеты.

...In the world of progressives, as with the Religious Right,

there is something ipso facto immoral about
prostitution. Both hate it equally, both for the same
reason. They just use different words to explain their
hatred of prostitution, and especially of prostitutes as
people. The religious right condemns it as a "sin," while
the Liberals condemn it as "exploitation." The Liberals
don't exactly say that they think it's really just a sin
because deep down they know that the overwhelming majority
of prostitutes work "voluntarily" ("voluntarily" in the
same way that a Tajik gasterbeiter "voluntarily" chooses
to work at a wretched Kaluga construction site, or a
divorced 45 year old woman in Lugansk "voluntarily" works
in a kiosk for 100 dollars a month...). Prostitution is a
shitty job, and people usually deal with their shitty
jobs, depending on their character. But this simple, flat,
obvious fact is too shocking, too earth-shattering for
most Progressives and Religious Righters to accept.

The American Left: exactly as Nietzsche said about the
English Socialists: "They are rid of the Christian God and
now believe all the more firmly that they must cling to
Christian morality." But even Christ had his famous
Whore-R story. Of course, he had to offer redemption--I
don't, because that's a cruel lie. The wretched reality of
a whore's life is that it's flat, dull, and vaguely
depressing. It's neither urban-gritty like Vollmann or
Selby want us to believe, nor is it like life on a slave
plantation as the human rightsers want us to believe (with
a few obvious exceptions).

Here is the real mean, ugly truth: everyone who is
"anti-prostitution" in fact hates prostitutes. They say
they want to end prostitution--but what they mean is they
don't want prostitutes to exist, because prostitutes
offend them.


And they do their best to make them not exist. Even
homeless people, many of whom are so insane and filthy as
to barely even rank as higher primates, are treated far
more humanely, with far more compassion, than prostitutes
are. Witness the Western reporting done from Moscow during
the two recent brutal coldsnaps. All of the media's
sympathy was focused on the plight of the homeless. The
fucking homeless! Why? In my eyes, they don't even rank up
with stray dogs, not even close. Prostitutes, on the other
hand, are struggling, sane, functioning people. And they
had to work the tochkas in the brutal cold. Did you see
one story about how whores survived the freeze?
No. Because prostitutes don't exist. A journalist could
have lost his job if he did a piece on the whores in the
freeze, treating them with compassion as just people
working a difficult job. It was just safer to report on
those poor, poor homeless people.
