If that better world wasn't a capitalist patriarchy, that might be a utopian possibility.

But as long as it is, paying for sex just props up the patriarchical model of sex where men's rights to have it are paramount. As long as we have a capitalist patriarchy, as a feminist I can never support that.

And if a politician who wanted prostitution illegal publicly states "sex with a disabled person is disgusting" I for one would be a little concerned.

"*she [RG] went on to say - "I'd also like to say that the notion of using disability as an excuse is offensive and appalling".*"

These statements don't mean the same thing at all though do they?

She didn't say "sex with a disabled person is disgusting"

She said "I'd also like to say that the notion of using disability as an excuse is offensive and appalling"

You have misrepresented her very badly.

I agree with her. If it's wrong to pay for sex, it's no less wrong just because the buyer has a disability.

No, I'd rather talk about how you misrepresented what she said.

"sex with a disabled person is disgusting"

It's quite an appalling thing to claim somebody said, when they actually didn't.

Did you present any other studies?

Since you have totally misrepresented her other statement I'm not commenting on what you said she said. If you want to challenge her survey you'll need to point to another one. It's a bit weak to say "I don't accept your survey so do another one". The proposed change of law is not driven by that survey.

I guess you don't know much about how laws are made or an effective way engage yourself in the process.

That's a bit rich from someone who totally misrepresented what Rhida Grant said.

I don't know what she said. You've shown yourself to be dishonest in your account of what she said so I'm not going to take your word for it. Your comment was weak though.
