Prostitutes

Apparently, 'You can't live with them, you can't live without them', or so I have heard. Well, I've heard that said about many things, but that's not bloody good enough.

'Prostitution is the oldest profession known to man' is another quote I have encountered many times. There's a bit of a giveaway in the 'known to MAN' bit, I think.

Both of the above are complete bollocks - Welcome to the Catholic version of Sex and Religion.

So someone chooses to pay for sex, so fucking what !!!

What really pisses me off, and that takes a lot usually, is that some weirdo in the UK has been convicted of killing FIVE women. In itself, this is bad enough, but all the news coverage says "Serial killer kills 5 prostitutes".

What do these shit-head journalists do apart from getting pissed in bars and swapping stories??!!

FIVE PEOPLE lost their lives and that should be the important bit, not what they chose to do to earn their money.

But, that's the joy of journalism - ONE journalist gets kidnapped and there's a fucking huge campaign mounted by the media. FIVE prostitutes get murdered and that's ok, "We could run something on Page 11 but not if it intereferes with the 'Burger King' advert".

AND, before, Mr ED the Journalist, you get on your fucking 'high horse' - do some fucking research.

I did, and it was fucking depressing - but, at least it was more than you did you publicity-seeking twats.....

*To the families of the GIRLS who lost their lives - sincere Gothic hugs*

Sorry if you were coming to Goth World for happy thoughts....

Very true - and just because they were junkies who turned to prostitution to pay for their addictions has nothing to do with the fact that 5 humans lost their lives to a serial killer.

But that's the media for you - they have to spice up a story or else it's no good.

As above!

That irritates me too. How often do you see "serial bus driver killer" or "serial mom killer"


give me a break!!

Zoe -> it doesn't matter to the media - headlines feed their bloodlust

JG -> lazy twat - I know you have an opinion on this

Shell -> not quite sure how it works in the US but a shit idea crosses continents, apparently

Well, I can think of at least 2 serial killers who specialized in other professions...

Serial nurse killer Richard Speck - something like 7 or 8 nurses.

Serial young-male killer John Wayne Gacy - not sure what his total was, but it filled his back yard and basement crawlspace...

This doesn't excuse treating the young women as "things" because of their profession, but then, you folks are a lot closer to "The Ripper" territory than I am. Sometimes it is helpful to know that you belong to a target group so that you can be more aware and on your guard?

Of the few stories appearing in the media where I had personal knowledge of the true facts (no I am not the Phantom Flasher), I have yet to see a single one that didn't contain at least one gross inaccuracy. There's no excuse.

Which just shows how five girls lost their lives because they were easy targets.

Sewmouse -> I know a lot about serial killers - but did you know that the original Marilyn Manson 'line-up' took their names from models/serial killers?

Mr F -> Indeed - cheapskate bastards those journalistic ones

Panu -> missing the point my dear - I was concentrating on the fact that they are people

Oh come on - get off your moralising high horse. It's shit enough being a prostitute without all the other dangers that go hand in hand with it. These poor girls are/were highly vulnerable and day after day get killed working in desperate circumstances. Anything that gives them publicity is good in my book.

I notice one article which I didn't read, saying they weren't sex workers but drug addicts. Whatever - I also send sincere sympathy to their families.
