I think this post about the variety of sex workers in ancient rome is the silliest thing ever posted on feministe
or at least the gooberiest example of how pathetic feministe’s version of feminist cultural critique is to appear in recent months.
If nothing else, someone presents us with a context-less list of words and tells us the moral of this story is how fun and sex positive ancient Rome.
I mean, I think the easiest, jumps-right-out-at-you thing to take away from that list is that there really wasn’t a single profession available to women where you weren’t also expected to sell sexual favors. But I guess that’s not titillating to think about.
Please don’t take that article as fact because I didn’t even get through the first few sentences without rolling my eyes hardcore. The joys of being a student of history.
