The misery in the prostitution, by Felicia Anna
By Felicia Anna
According to Jojanneke [Dutch journalist] it’s all misery in the prostitution. 70% would be forced, she claimed, a source has yet to been found. Yes, someone from the Public Prosecution Office would have said it, but how come nobody can find it than, if they know it so well?
With her documentary Jojanneke wants to show the misery in prostitution. No surprise there, after all, she was already convinced even before her documentary that 80% was forced, so that’s what she’ll be looking for. Of course she claims to have searched for the ‘happy hooker’, a lady that does it out of her own free will. She didn’t find it, she claims.
Strangely enough I’m really not that hard to find. And neither are the many other girls I personally know, friends, colleagues I’ve worked with for years, even girls I hate. In fact, it seems nobody I know has talked with Jojanneke, which begs the question: who did she talk to?
It should come as no surprise that Jojanneke talked with the people that have had a bad experience in the prostitution industry. It’s like making a documentary about airplane travel, but mostly interviewing people that are either scared of flying and had to go on an airplane, or interviewing airplane crash survivors. Of course you’re gonna get a negative view on airplane travel, even though statistically it’s the safest way to travel.
Point is of course that Jojanneke doesn’t want to find the happy hooker. I mean, if so many other people can find me: politicians, researchers, journalists (even from the USA!), than how come she couldn’t find me? Of course she doesn’t want that! That would jeopardize the whole goal about her show. Her show isn’t about prostitution, it’s about showing victims of trafficking and calling it prostitution. It’s all about conflicting prostitution with trafficking to give prostitution a bad name.
And why? To show the misery? Because according to Jojanneke there isn’t any attention for that.
I don’t know what planet Jojanneke is from, but all people talk about when it comes to prostitution is the misery! Try and talk one time with someone about prostitution, without talking about forced prostitution and see how far you can carry that conversation!
Indeed! Not very far! That’s because there’s only attention for the misery in this industry, a funny thing, because Jojanneke claims the exact opposite. As if there was no attention for Saban B., which begs the question how come so many people know his name if there’s no attention for trafficking? Or what about project 1012 in Amsterdam, to ‘clean up the Red Light District’? Did that also escape her mind.
And what about the other liars, like Maria Mosterd, who went on almost every national TV channel to claim things that later turned out to be a fraud. And what about fraud Patricia Perquin and all the articles she wrote about the Amsterdam Red Light District? Or how about Perdiep Ramesar? Lodewijk Asscher? Gert-Jan Segers? Eberhard van der Laan? Free A Girl? Stop The Traffik with their ‘dancing prostitutes’ video?
Seriously? There’s not enough attention for it? Jojanneke thinks we need more attention for these things? Why? Because in her mind people think positive about prostitution?
Heck! If that would be the case, my life wouldn’t be this difficult. It would be much easier for me to open a simple bank account. I could rent an apartment without any problem. I could get a loan or a mortgage from a bank. I wouldn’t be spit on by so many people. The police wouldn’t be checking the girls every 3 or 4 months. We wouldn’t have so many organisations claiming they talk to us, who we by the way never see.
Fact is that Jojanneke is framing things falsely. She wants people to believe there’s no attention for forced prostitution, exploitation and any thing to do with human trafficking. In reality, it’s impossible to do, write, see or hear anything about prostitution without it. Human trafficking and prostitution have become one and the same thing in the eyes of many people. And that’s exactly the point!
Because when human trafficking and prostitution become one and the same thing, that brings them one step closer to banning prostitution. It’s no secret Jojanneke thinks prostitution is idiotic, so of course she’d rather see it banned than how it is now. She may claim this is not that case, but than again she claims a lot of things.
It’s the trick they pull every time on us. Asscher did it, Gert-Jan Segers does it, Renate van der Zee, Eveline Hölksen, Stop The Traffik, I can go on and on with the list of people. Every time they claim things about us, without even talking to us, basing themselves on false statistics and books and stories of frauds. Just so they can make prostitution look as negative as possible. Make it look like everywhere in prostitution it’s human trafficking. Because the more it will look like prostitution is rotten to the core, the closer they are to banning prostitution.
Try and find one time an article in the newspaper, or a TV program, or even a movie that depicts something else than human trafficking in prostitution. You’ll see the list will be very short. So how can Jojanneke claim that there isn’t enough attention for the misery in prostitution, if that’s what most of the media write and talk about?!
It’s an absolute lie that people don’t give attention to this! I see almost every day articles passing by about human trafficking, with the worst example imaginable. The idea is of course to post those kind of articles as often as possible, to make people believe it’s happening a lot. It’s a simply manipulation trick they’ve learned from Hitler’s propaganda.
How many times have you read in the newspaper that 100’s of prostitutes are perfectly happy with their job and weren’t forced? Never? Yet it’s true. How many times have you seen a TV program that shows prostitutes that are fine with their job? Never? What a surprise! How many movies can you name that show a positive side about prostitution?
