new wave feminism

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

A quasi-academic look at Feminism, politics & race relations through the lens of a 20-something year old Nigerian American who was born & raised up in the (still) segregated south but has relocated to the "liberal" yet historic & traditional north.
This blog is my space for an interdisciplinary examination of race, gender, class, sexuality - all things intersectional & multi-dimensional.
Feminism the way I see it...

Albany Bill Would Bar Condoms as Evidence of Prostitution - NYTimes.com

Good article about no condoms as evidence legislation.

(snip snip snip)
  • Also there’s this: ” Excluding certain types of evidence from criminal court is rare, but not unprecedented. One example is the rape shield law, which limits evidence or questions in rape trials about a complainant’s previous sexual conduct.” Mention of the rape shield law is ironic because rape shield law in NY state doesn’t apply to people who have gotten a prostitution related conviction in the last three years.

I snipped heaps of this because it’s being reblogged elsewhere by heapsa people and the link to the original is right up there, but, holy SHIT that piece of legislation. I can’t really comprehend it? At all? Fuck. one more time:

rape shield law in NY state doesn’t apply to people who have gotten a prostitution related conviction in the last three years.

How did I not know about this and why isn’t there anything I can do to help?

In case anyone is wondering what this means? It means that a sex worker - past or current - who has been raped, will likely be subjected to character assassination and victim-blaming while they’re on the witness stand.

So basically, if you’re a dirty whore you deserve to be raped and it was your own fault.

Hopefully, I don’t need to explain all the ways in which this is horrifically fucked up.

Y’know….I honestly can’t say I’m surprised. Like…at all.

I live here, always have, and when people get blown away by how draconic some of the NYS/NYC laws are I just cry on the inside.

But this, this is horrendous.
