Cool article showed up yesterday on Boston.com, about city councilor Ayanaa Pressley and her conversation with a pimp. I didn’t have time to really dig into it too much, but it is an indication of our world right now: Ms. Pressley, a city councilor, is approached by a man who sells women for money. That he did so, at all, shows that he’s probably off his rocker a bit, but also that there’s an on-going social message that women are available for men’s consumption. Even if they are a city councilor. Even if you are a presidential candidate.
It’s ridiculous and stupid that a pimp harassed our city councilor, but he’s only at the end of the spectrum by which we tell all men what women are for.
