So, Asenati Lole-Taylor and NZ First have held their
mob meeting about the horrors of South Auckland men paying for sex workers.
[Lole-Taylor’s] comments received cheers and support from the crowd.
But a spokesperson from Streetreach, which provides a confidential support service for those involved in prostitution, was heckled when she said there has been a drop off in the number working the area’s streets.
What? Facts? WHO LET FACTS INTO THIS DEBATE? We’re here to whip up panic and justify our whorephobia, you silly little woman who wants to “support” sex workers instead of publicly shaming them! Who invited you?
People at the meeting said officials don’t understand the scale of the problem
Because when the agencies supporting sex workers and the Police agree that there isn’t really rampant child sex work taking placing, but one conservative MP whose voter base are kept loyal through judicious panic-mongering says there are, I think we all know who’s on the side of reality.
Here’s a thought, though: maybe the people attending NZ First’s meeting are better informed about the number of child sex workers on the streets of Papatoetoe. Because they’re the ones paying to rape teenagers.
I know I harp on about this, but the cognitive dissonance never stops baffling me. There are sex workers on the streets of South Auckland because the men of South Auckland are paying them for sex.
Maybe Asenati Lole-Taylor is happy to brand a large number of her male constituents as “greasy lowlifes”, but I couldn’t possibly comment.
