I think this post about the variety of sex workers in ancient rome is the silliest thing ever posted on feministe

galesofnovember:

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.
