Vom Sündenbockmechanismus zur Tempelprostitution

#202

Beitrag von Marc of Frankfurt »

Frage: Sexworker als Sündenbock?

z.B. auch bei Alice Schwarzer und Konsorten.
Hier weitere Links zur Theorie:


René Girard

Geboren 1923
französischer Literaturwissenschaftler, Kulturanthropologe und Religionsphilosoph:
  • Nachahmungsverhalten (Mimetik) ermöglicht Lernen aber erzeugt auch nachgeahmte Interessen, Bedürfnisse und damit Konkurrenzdruck.
  • Um den Konkurrenzkampf zu befrieden, muß ein Sündenbock (Täter) geopfert werden.
  • Dieser Sündenbockmechanismus ist die Wurzel der Kulturentstehung.
  • Besonders ausgeprägt ist solcher Wille zur Bestrafung und Bereitschaft zum Opfern in Religionsgemeinschaften. Es ist ein evolutionärer Vorteil für eine religiöse oder sonstwie fundamentalistische Gruppe.
  • Die Bibel kann jedoch auch als moders Weisheitsbuch und Lehre vom Menschsein interpretiert werden, dass genau dieses Wissen enthält und bereits auch die Überwindung: Jesus war zunächst dieser Sündenbock in der damaligen Machtkonstellation, der geopfert wurde. Doch dann wurde er wiederbelebt/rehabilitiert (Ostern), weil erkannt wurde wie verschwenderisch unproduktiv ein solches Menschenopfer (Exklusion, Ehrenmord) ist. Christliche Nächstenliebe als moderne Lehre von Diversity, Inklusion und harm reduction...

    Na wenn das nicht mal eine frohe Osterbotschaft ist.

Sexworker werden oft nur auf Geschlechtlichkeit oder Geschlechtsteile reduziert ("Verkauf des Körpers"). Dabei liegt das größte Sexualorgan bekanntlich zwischen den Ohren. Wenn es also heißt Sexworker arbeiten mit Körper und Herz/Geist/Seele, dann sind wohl ganz entscheidend die Spiegel-Neuronen aktiv.

Unsere Spiegel-Neuronen sind das Fundament unserer Empathiefähigkeit zu unseren Gästen (das Annehmen-Können des Allzumenschlichen, das Halten und Teilhabenlassen des fremden Anderen, eine körperlich-sinnliche Form der christlichen Nächstenliebe, eine Sexworker-Kernkompetenz.

Wirkung des Prostitutionsstigma

Fortsetzung von hier:
www.sexworker.at/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=88214#88214


Ex-Sexarbeiterin, Autorin und Grundschullehrerin Melissa Petro aus New York beschreibt ihren Rausschmiß aus der Schule und die Folgen einer Medienhetzkampagne, nachdem die New York Post sie als "Huren-Lehrerin" geoutet hatte, weil sie einen kritischen, positiven Artikel über Sexarbeit und gegen Craigslist-Zensur publiziert hatte:


The "Hooker Teacher" tells all

I lost my elementary school job for admitting my sex worker past. Now, even friends ask: What was I thinking?



Bild

By Melissa Petro
www.salon.com/life/feature/2011/05/04/h ... index.html


I have two master's degrees, five years' experience in the nonprofit sector and three years' experience teaching -- and I cannot get a job. Why? Just google me. I'm the "Hooker Teacher" -- at least that's what I've come to be called ever since Sept. 27, 2010, when I found myself on the cover of the New York Post.

"Meet Melissa Petro," the story began," the teacher who gives a new twist to sex ed." The piece describes me as a "tattooed former hooker and stripper" who was "shockingly upfront about her past."

Indeed, earlier that month, I'd written an Op-Ed on the Huffington Post that criticized the recent censoring of the adult services section of Craigslist and came clean about my own sex-worker past.

Because I was arguing that sex workers shouldn't be ashamed to speak for themselves, I signed my name to it. The New York Post wasn't interested in my politics, however; its interest seemed only in cooking up shock that an elementary school teacher would dare admit such a shady history.

[ Die Wirkung des Prostitutionsstigmas und seines Tabubruchs ist so stark und damit als auflagenstarke Aufmacherstory ausbeutbar, dass jede kritisch-reflektierte Berichterstattung unmöglich wird. Man kann das als eine der vielen Prostitutionsfallen bezeichnen. ]





The Internet shaming was fast, intense and seemingly unending, summed up in February by columnist Andrea Peyser, who wrote: "Hooker turned teacher Melissa Petro is a disgrace."

Eight months after the story broke, I am jobless. I cannot get hired. And even my biggest supporters ask me privately: "But seriously, what were you thinking?" The answer is complicated. I was being idealistic. I was being provocative. I was naive. I picked a fight that I thought I could win -- and I was wrong.

One reason I was so casual about the disclosure was that I had been writing about my past long before becoming a teacher. As a student at the New School, where I earned a degree in creative nonfiction, I began work on a memoir that details, in part, how I began stripping while living in Mexico as a student abroad. As an undergraduate at Antioch, I conducted ethnographic research across Europe and in the U.S., interviewing women from all aspects of the industry about their lives and their professions (published in the collection "Sex Work Matters: Power and Intimacy in the Sex Industry"). The subject of sex work and workers' rights became a passion about which I've written in print and online, everywhere from academic and literary journals to political blogs.

Another reason I didn't think my story would be shocking is because, well, my story isn't shocking. Whereas some women's road to sex work entails coercion and last-ditch survival, for me, this wasn't the case. The product of a working-class home -- the first in her family to go to college, let alone study abroad -- my working as a stripper began as a means to an end. Prior to stripping, I'd worked in fast food. I'd worked in retail. I even spent one summer delivering singing telegrams. I was used to long hours, unreasonable bosses and very little pay; stripping -- at least at first -- was the ideal job.

But sex work, I would learn, was a far from perfect occupation. Prostitution, in particular, was not the job for me. I was simply not suited for a profession that relied on dishonesty. I got caught up in the industry's pull toward materialism and greed. The industry's criminalized and stigmatized nature only exacerbated the rigors of the work. I kept my job a secret, even from my family and friends. Living a lie, I lied to myself. My own denial and self-justification made it near impossible to extricate [befreien] myself from the business. It was only by writing about my experiences that I was able to see my truth.





Around my 27th birthday, I gave up sex work for good. It was some months later when -- unemployed and working on a book -- teaching presented itself as an option. I was attracted to the flexibility and creativity of the profession. I liked the idea of working with children and of making a difference in my community, not to mention the summer vacation. After graduating from the New School, I landed a spot as a New York City Teaching Fellow, which bills itself as a highly competitive program that recruits "high quality, dedicated individuals from different backgrounds" to become teachers in New York City's struggling public schools. My first year as a teacher, I earned my master's in childhood education in the evenings while working full-time at an elementary school in the South Bronx. I taught art and creative writing to students in grades K-5, nearly 700 students each week. In the three years I spent there, I grew to love my job.

My past had no bearing on my competence as a teacher, and so I refused to operate as if it did. The idea that an elementary school teacher wasn't entitled to a life in her off-hours I found equally absurd. Sure, I'd seen other teachers get in trouble for stupid things like pictures or comments posted on Facebook. Even so, I did not think it would happen to me. I was well appreciated at my school. When it came to my administration and my colleagues, my personal life was just that: personal. Many of them knew I was a writer, and those who had bothered to google me knew I wrote about my past. It had never been an issue -- until the day it became front-page news.





There it was, my name and likeness -- a most unflattering shot, by the way -- under varying versions of the "hooker teacher" headline (which always made it sound like I was still involved in sex work, as though I were heading from the reading circle straight to working the streets): "Bronx art teacher blabs about exploits as stripper and hooker," "Prostitute teacher a reason to end tenure." I was called an "idiot prosti-teacher" in one N.Y. Post headline. One photo caption by the same publication read, "Attention whore." More offensive than my past, it seemed, was the fact I'd had the gall to talk about it. The women's blog, the Frisky, supposed it was "all part of Petro's media-savvy plan to get publicity for her upcoming memoir," which the writer called "disgusting." The Daily News, Inside Edition and Us Weekly all sent their female reporters, women ironically similar to me -- young professionals, well-dressed, writers themselves -- to get in my face, demanding to know how I could refer to myself as a feminist.

As an advocate, I had long ago realized the media generally treats current and former sex workers in one of two ways: We are portrayed as victims, looked down upon and felt sorry for, too stupid to realize our own victimization; or else we are made out to be villains [Gauner] -- dirty, cheap and willing to do anything to satisfy our greed. For years, I'd fought these gross stereotypes. Now I found myself on the receiving end of it.

To some, it was unfathomable to think that a woman could have once been a prostitute and, at another time, served her community competently as a teacher. Even New York's Mayor Bloomberg made a statement personally requesting my permanent removal from the classroom. It was as though I were a monster needing to be stopped.





I'm not a monster, or a moron. I'm a human being, and -- like everyone else -- I've made mistakes. In the community where I grew up, girls didn't become writers and teachers; they became strippers. I worked hard to earn my degrees. Of my sex work past, I have no regrets. Why, hadn't I done exactly what critics of prostitution would have wanted? I had exited the sex industry to become a "productive" member of society. And yet no one seemed to accept that I might not be ashamed of my past. That I might, on the contrary, be proud of it.

I thought my perspective deserved to be heard. I thought that my speech was protected. I did not believe a government employee could lose her job for publishing an Op-Ed. Like I said, I was naive.

The night before the Post article came out I received a phone call from the superintendent of schools in my district informing me that I'd been put in reassignment. Instead of teaching I would report to the Department of Education administrative offices and sit awaiting instruction, where I sat for months until this past Friday, my last day. After months of investigation, I was formally charged. The charges -conduct unbecoming a professional- were a direct result of my published writing, the evidence cited against me consisting entirely of my quoted work. The fact that I was competent in my role as a teacher was never called into question. Even the Post could find no way of describing me other than "well liked." But my job performance was never a consideration. The only fact that seemed to matter, apparently, was that I'd been a whore.





In the days and weeks following my reassignment, I learned a number of hard lessons about constitutional law. The constitutionality of a government employee's speech is contingent on whether or not that speech creates a distraction in the workplace and, if it does, it is not protected so long as the distraction outweighs its political worth. This is the same reason that a soldier, according to people like John McCain, shouldn't announce that he or she is gay. Doing so, the argument goes, would create a "mortal distraction."

In the case of the Hooker Teacher, in order to fire me the DOE needed only to prove that my writing created a disruption in my school community and that such a disruption had little societal value. Whether it was my speech or the speech of the New York Post that created the disruption was, of course, an argument to be made.

Meanwhile, the actual political import of my work was impossible to gauge, my own words buried in google searches underneath inflammatory news pieces, sensational headlines and cherry-picked excerpts from my creative work that, printed out of context, suggested I wrote at length about marijuana-fueled shenanigans and lesbian love affairs. Contrary to how I was being painted in the headlines, I was not a teacher blogging recklessly in her off-hours on WordPress about her sexual escapades. I was a writer and, as a writer, I was establishing a platform as a social commentator on an issue of cultural importance.

In the wake of Hooker Teacher headlines no one was debating the censoring of Craigslist, the legality of prostitution or even the constitutionality of my reassignment. The heated debate in the commentary section of the Daily News, for example, was whether I was hot enough to be paid for sex.

- The papers printed my personal Facebook statuses as if they were news.
- CBS published a slide show of my personal pictures, implicating my family and friends. The home where I lived was revealed on the nightly news so that anyone who wanted to could easily come find me.

I was personally insulted and put at risk, then made to feel that by publishing a work of serious nonfiction, I had been "asking for it."

[ Die Schuld wird dem Opfer zugewiesen, so wie es auch mit Vergewaltigungsopfern geschieht, wenn es heißt: "warum hat sie sich auch so sex angezogen". So wird das Opfer zweimal zum Opfer gemacht. Einmal vom Einzeltäter und dann von der Gesamtgesellschaft. ]

Sure, I knew I was taking a risk. I stated that in the original HuffPo piece. But knowing there is a risk doesn't mean you realize how great a risk it is, or what the consequences will be. And the consequences, in a word, have been devastating.





While I was paid by my employer through April, I had been relying on two after-school jobs to make ends meet. The day the Post story hit I was unceremoniously fired from both, including a position working in the childcare section of my gym. Other than an offer to be in a porn mag and another paid opportunity to be interviewed on "Inside Edition" -- an agreement that felt a little like Red Riding Hood signing off to have dinner with the wolves -- there were no silver linings in my dark cloud of publicity.

Like the teenager I had once been, this past winter I would've done almost anything for cash. No one willing to hire the hooker teacher meant that I skipped meals. I walked instead of taking the train and didn't launder my clothes as often as necessary. This, I understand, is the predicament of the unemployed and working poor and it reminded me a lot of how I grew up. I worked hard to escape those circumstances, and the fact that I was back there -- with student loans to boot -- felt unfair.

I suppose I could've just gone back to hooking. Instead, I made the arguably anti-feminist decision to give up my apartment and move in with my boyfriend. If this situation has taught me anything, it is that sometimes we must put ideals aside and think practically -- much like I did at 19 years old, when I became a stripper.

So, in the end, I resigned from my job, rather than pursuing a trial. I quit rather than be fired because, had I not signed their agreement, the DOE threatened to contest my unemployment. As much as I believed in the merits of my case, it was a risk I couldn't take.

Now, I send out rafts of résumés, and I can't find work. Whether that's partly the economy, I can't say, but these days it seems my most important former occupation is the one not on my résumé.

Despite all I've lost, though, I refuse to let this defeat me. I know there would be something worse than living with the consequences of speaking my truth: living in silence. Let's hope potential employers take note: I didn't lose my job for being a hooker. I lost my job for being a writer.

Kündigung und Berufsverbot

Beitrag von Marc of Frankfurt »

Moral und Diskriminierung:


Noch ein Lehrer in den U.S.A. dem wegen privater Sexualität gekündigt wurde.

Prostitution scheint demnächst in Deutschen Melderegistereinträgen und Arbeitgeberabfragen auf.



1.) Schoolteacher Frank Lampedusa, 47, was fired from Farb Middle School/San Diego district, were he worked since 2004/1999, for posting a sexually explicit ad and photos in the "men seeking men" section of Craigslist.

2.) His firing had been overruled by a state commission that said the ad was unrelated to his ability to teach middle-school students.

3.) A Superior Court judge agreed.

4.) But the appeals court disagreed, saying Lampedusa's conduct showed he was unfit to teach and "serve as a role model" for his students. A teacher's private life can constitute grounds for dismissal if it demonstrates "indecency and moral indifference," said the Fourth District Court of Appeal in San Diego. The court issued the 3-0 ruling last month and published it Tuesday as a statewide precedent for future cases. ... "Lampedusa's public posting of his pornographic ad is inconsistent with teaching middle-school students and serving as an administrator," said Justice Gilbert Nares. Jose Gonzales, a lawyer for the district, said the court recognized the special responsibilities of schoolteachers. "Like judges and police officers," he said, teachers "are held to a higher standard of off-duty conduct ... because of their critical function in our government."

www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c ... 1JC06S.DTL





Aus der selben Logik bekommen Ex-SexarbeiterInnen oder Ex-BetreiberInnen, die z.B. einen prostitutionsspezifischen Eintrag im Bundeszentralregister haben, Berufsverbot als Pädagoge oder Betreuer:

Das 5. Gesetz zur Änderung des Bundeszentralregisters vom 1. Mai 2010 biete mehr Kinder- und Jugendschutz durch erweitertes Führungszeugnis.

Verurteilte nach prostitutionsspezifischen Sonderstraftatbeständen (z.B. mehrmahliger ordnungswidrige Verstoß gegen Sperrgebietsregelung oder Menschenhandel, weil die SexarbeiterIn zwar 18 aber noch keine 21 Jahre alt war) werden gleichgesetzt mit verurteilten Kinderschändern. Prävention von sexuellem Mißbrauch und Kinder- und Jugendschutz wird zur Stigmatisierung der im Prostitutionsbereich tätigen Menschen mißbraucht.

In 2008 gab es 390 prostitutionsrelevante Verurteilungen oder 3% aller Straftaten gegen die sexuelle Selbstbestimmung mit sinkender Tendenz.

Doch das neue Gesetz ermöglicht jetzt erstmals Arbeitgeber-Abfragen hinsichtlich prostitutionsspezifischer Vorstrafen für Millionen von Menschen im Bereich Bildung, Erziehung, Beaufsichtigung und Betreuung. Das steht mit den 390 Straftaten in einem krassen Mißverhältnis und erlaubt nur die Schlußfolgerung es geht der staatlichen Politik darum, Prostitution als sittlich anstößig zu bewerten, ihre Kontrolle auf allen Ebenen wieder zur Gewohnheit zu machen und mittels Berufsverboten eine stigmatisierende Ausgrenzungspolitik zu betreiben.

4 neue Bücher zum Geschlechter- und Herrschaftsdiskurs:



Differenzen leben
Kulturwissenschaftliche und geschlechterkritische Perspektiven auf Inklusion und Exklusion
Utta Isop, Viktorija Ratkovic (Hg.), Adria-Universität Klagenfurt

Eine Kritik an unterschiedlichen Formen globaler und struktureller Herrschaft aus geschlechterkritischer, kulturkonstruktivistischer und queerer Perspektive.
www.transcript-verlag.de/ts1528/ts1528.php



Kannibale-Werden
Eine postkoloniale Geschichte deutscher Männlichkeit um 1900
Eva Bischoff, FU Berlin

Der koloniale, kriminologisch-anthropologische sowie medizinischen Kannibalismus-Diskurs um 1900 zeigt den Kannibalen als zentralen Referenzpunkt für die Konstruktion männlicher Geschlechteridentitäten auf. Anstelle einer binären Differenz zwischen dem weißen Mann und dem kannibalischen Anderen wurde ein Kontinuum männlicher (Ab-)Normalität entworfen.
Dieses Buch ist ein innovativer Beitrag zur Frage nach der Intersektionalität des Geschlechts.
www.transcript-verlag.de/ts1469/ts1469.php



Krisenerlebnis wird zur Sündenbockkonstruktion:
Dämonen, Vamps und Hysterikerinnen
Geschlechter- und Rassenfigurationen in Wissen, Medien und Alltag um 1900.
Ulrike Auga e.a. Humboldt Uni B

Krisenphänomenen der Moderne um 1900 in deren Deutung moderne Erfahrungen der Kontingenz und alte Muster der Religion eingehen. Zahlreiche Schauplätze für Geschlechter- und Rassenfigurationen führten zu Konstruktionen von Vamps, Hysterikerinnen und Hysterikern sowie Perversen. Der Mythos der »neuen Frau«, antisemitische Sexualbilder und sexualisierte Konstruktionen des »Primitiven« erzeugen Verwerfungen und Figurationen, die in Film und Fotografie, Wissenschaft und Kunst aufgegriffen, verändert und reproduziert werden.
www.transcript-verlag.de/ts1572/ts1572.php



Heute ist das sensible Leiden und Versagen weiblich konnotiert:
Das Geschlecht der Depression
»Weiblichkeit« und »Männlichkeit« in der Konzeptualisierung depressiver Störungen
Nadine Teuber, Humboldt Uni B

Frauen sind einem doppelt hohen Depressionsrisiko ausgesetzt und Weiblichkeitsstereotype erscheinen heute als Ausdruck depressiver Symptome. Historisch gibt es aber einen Wandel von »melancholischer Männlichkeit« der Antike bis zur modernen Medikalisierung »depressiver Weiblichkeit«.

Anti-Prostitutions-Propaganda

#208

Beitrag von fraences »

Prostitution Propaganda
Remember how the campaign against sex trafficking in the UK was shown to be largely bunk? How in fact there weren't tens of thousands of sex slaves in the UK and that the whole thing was hyped up by various charities and opportunistic campaigners?

Well interestingly the same thing has happened in the United States where widely repeated "studies" into underage prostitution have turned out to be nonsense.

Running a fake charity "rescuing" prostitutes is a great scam- you get to pose as a hero and if anyone contradicts* your facts then you imply that they are supporting child rape or slavery.

Meanwhile their efforts to keep prostitution illegal have inevitable consequences.

Über Psychologie und Einstellung zur Arbeit:


Schmutzige Jobs:

Arbeit die erledigt werden will...



US Journalist Mike Rowe über die Quintessenz schmutziger Jobs.

"Dirty jobs done by people who aren't afraid to get dirty - hard-working men and women who earn an honest living doing the kinds of jobs that make civilized life possible for the rest of us."

TED-Videolecture (English):
http://thesocietypages.org/socimages/20 ... irty-jobs/

So cool wie er in diesem Vortrag harte-dreckige, körperlich-handwerkliche Arbeit beschreibt und neu bewertet, gilt es auch für Sexarbeit! Ein Großteil der Aufregung oder Abwertung ist einer modernen-kulturellen Entfremdung geschuldet, die mit Industrialisierung und Wohlstandszuwachs einherging...

Bezeichnend, dass die Kastrationsmethode die die (Human-)Wissenschaft beschreibt, für den Schäfer bei dem er die Arbeit kennen gelernt hat, völlig unbrauchbar ist.

Richtig. Marc, und mit der Entfremdung geht auch einher, dass Tatsachen durch die Phantsien darüber ersetzt werden.

Würde der "typische" entfremdete Bürohengst sich wirklich eine Vorstellung davon machen, was beispielsweise bei einer Darmspiegelung vor sich geht, so würde er Ärzte wahrscheinlich sozial niederer einstufen als Prostituierte ...

Oder wie ich gerne sage: "Anästhesie heißt mein solider Fachbereich deshalb, weil er alles andere als ästhetisch ist" :046

Aber wenn die Statistik stimmen sollte, so wäre unsere Einordnung vor Politikern zwar erfreulich, dass wir nach Soldaten Polizisten und bankers kommen sollte uns aber deutlich zu denken geben :017

Folgendes kann aus den Lehren der "Frankfurter Schule" über Prostitution abgeleitet werden:


Sexwork ist eine privat gelebte Utopie jenseits der gesellschaftlichen Konvention.


Auszug aus dem Radiointerview mit Theodor W. Adorno (1903-1969) und Ernst Bloch (1885-1977)
zum Thema »Möglichkeiten der Utopie Heute«, 1964
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W5JMLKeH0iw[/youtube]


"Utopie ist die Veränderung des Ganzen."

Doch herrschende Kreise der Gesellschaft diffamieren es als "Utopie" und behaupten das Bestehende sei alternativlos.

Doch der Mensch weis eine andere Welt oder ein ihm bisher vorenthaltens erfüllendes Leben, ist möglich.

Adorno: "Durch eine Verhexung der Welt wird den Menschen die Erfüllung ihrer Utopien vorenthalten."

Soweit zum Prostitutionsstigma, welches sogar Hilfsvereine für Prostituierte gemeinsam mit Konzernmedien kultivieren.

Die Kirche, die viele Frauen als Hexen verbrannt hat, wird selbst als Hexenmeister enttarnt.

Die breite bürgerliche Ablehnung der Utopie (und Prostitution) wird erklärbar durch Freud mit dem Stockholmsyndrom, d.h. der Sympathie zum Agressor bzw. Unterdrücker, zum System, zur Matrix...

  • "Abolitionists have often complained of rights activists using language to legitimise the industry by using terms like ‘client’ instead of ‘john’ and ‘worker’ instead of ‘prostitute’. Sex workers and rights activists have moved away from the old terms as they are terms that have often been used to disempower and discriminate against workers, where as ‘client’ and ‘sex worker’ are much more value neutral. Abolitionists are not innocent of using language to further their agenda. Often the term ‘prostituted’ is used to describe sex workers, this positions the worker as an agencyless victim. Once you have positioned someone as being without agency it becomes easier to ignore their voice, to believe that you know what is in their best interest and that you are doing, or advocating, for them.

    In reality the abolitionist is using their power and social privilege to take advantage of sex workers’ marginalised position, something that they accuse clients of doing, the difference is that they are not seeking sexual but moral gratification."

Radikale Aufklärungsschrift über Sexwork und Anti-Menschenhandel-Hysterie vor 100 Jahren - The white slavery moral panic:


THE TRAFFIC IN WOMEN

by Emma Goldman 1911




OUR REFORMERS have suddenly made a great discovery--the white slave traffic. The papers are full of these "unheard-of conditions," and lawmakers are already planning a new set of laws to check the horror.

It is significant that whenever the public mind is to be diverted from a great social wrong, a crusade is inaugurated against indecency, gambling, saloons, etc. And what is the result of such crusades? Gambling is increasing, saloons are doing a lively business through back entrances, prostitution is at its height, and the system of pimps and cadets is but aggravated.

How is it that an institution, known almost to every child, should have been discovered so suddenly? How is it that this evil, known to all sociologists, should now be made such an important issue?





Kapitalistische Arbeitsausbeutung als Prostitutionsursache

To assume that the recent investigation of the white slave traffic (and, by the way, a very superficial investigation) has discovered anything new, is, to say the least, very foolish. Prostitution has been, and is, a widespread evil, yet mankind goes on its business, perfectly indifferent to the sufferings and distress of the victims of prostitution. As indifferent, indeed, as mankind has remained to our industrial system, or to economic prostitution.

Only when human sorrows are turned into a toy with glaring colors will baby people become interested --for a while at least. The people are a very fickle baby that must have new toys every day. The "righteous" cry against the white slave traffic is such a toy. It serves to amuse the people for a little while, and it will help to create a few more fat political jobs--parasites who stalk about the world as inspectors, investigators, detectives, and so forth.

What is really the cause of the trade in women? Not merely white women, but yellow and black women as well. Exploitation, of course; the merciless Moloch of capitalism that fattens on underpaid labor, thus driving thousands of women and girls into prostitution. With Mrs. Warren these girls feel, "Why waste your life working for a few shillings a week in a scullery [Spülküche], eighteen hours a day?"

Naturally our reformers say nothing about this cause. They know it well enough, but it doesn't pay to say anything about it. It is much more profitable to play the Pharisee, to pretend an outraged morality, than to go to the bottom of things.

However, there is one commendable exception among the young writers: Reginald Wright Kauffman, whose work The House of Bondage (1910) is the first earnest attempt to treat the social evil--not from a sentimental Philistine viewpoint. A journalist of wide experience, Mr. Kauffman proves that our industrial system leaves most women no alternative except prostitution. The women portrayed in The House of Bondage belong to the working class. Had the author portrayed the life of women in other spheres, he would have been confronted with the same state of affairs.

Nowhere is woman treated according to the merit of her work, but rather as a sex. It is therefore almost inevitable that she should pay for her right to exist, to keep a position in whatever line, with sex favors. Thus it is merely a question of degree whether she sells herself to one man, in or out of marriage, or to many men. Whether our reformers admit it or not, the economic and social inferiority of woman is responsible for prostitution.

Just at present our good people are shocked by the disclosures that in New York City alone 10% women works in a factory, that the average wage received by women is $6 per week for forty-eight to sixty hours of work, and that the majority of female wage workers face many months of idleness which leaves the average wage about $280 a year. In view of these economic horrors, is it to be wondered at that prostitution and the white slave trade have become such dominant factors?

Lest the preceding figures be considered an exaggeration, it is well to examine what some authorities on prostitution have to say:
  • "A prolific cause of female depravity can be found in the several tables, showing the description of the employment pursued, and the wages received, by the women previous to their fall, and it will be a question for the political economist to decide how far mere business consideration should be an apology --on the part of employers for a reduction in their rates of remuneration, and whether the savings of a small percentage on wages is not more than counterbalanced by the enormous amount of taxation enforced on the public at large to defray the expenses incurred on account of a system of vice, which is the direct result, in many cases, of insufficient compensation of honest labor."
    [1 Dr. Sanger, The History of Prostitution (1859).]
Our present-day reformers would do well to look into Dr. Sanger's book. There they will find that out of 2,000 cases under his observation, but few came from the middle classes, from well-ordered conditions, or pleasant homes. By far the largest majority were working girls and working women; some driven into prostitution through sheer want, others because of a cruel, wretched life at home, others again because of thwarted and crippled physical natures (of which I shall speak later on). Also it will do the maintainers of purity and morality good to learn that out of two thousand cases, 490 [25%] were married women, women who lived with their husbands. Evidently there was not much of a guaranty for their "safety and purity" in the sanctity of marriage.
[2 It is a significant fact that Dr. Sanger's book has been excluded from the U. S. mails. Evidently the authorities are not anxious that the public be informed as to the true cause of prostitution.]

Dr. Alfred Blaschko, in Prostitution in the Nineteenth Century, is even more emphatic in characterizing economic conditions as one of the most vital factors of prostitution.
  • "Although prostitution has existed in all ages, it was left to the nineteenth century to develop it into a gigantic social institution. The development of industry with vast masses of people in the competitive market, the growth and congestion of large cities, the insecurity and uncertainty of employment, has given prostitution an impetus never dreamed of at any period in human history."
And again Havelock Ellis (Britischer Sozialreformer 1859-1939), while not so absolute in dealing with the economic cause, is nevertheless compelled to admit that it is indirectly and directly the main cause. Thus he finds that a large percentage of prostitutes is recruited from the servant class, although the latter have less care and greater security. On the other hand, Mr. Ellis does not deny that the daily routine, the drudgery [Schinderei], the monotony of the servant girl's lot, and especially the fact that she may never partake of the companionship and joy of a home, is no mean factor in forcing her to seek recreation and forgetfulness in the gaiety and glimmer of prostitution. In other words, the servant girl, being treated as a drudge [Arbeitssklave], never having the right to herself, and worn out by the caprices of her mistress, can find an outlet, like the factory or shopgirl, only in prostitution.





Religion und Doppelmoral

The most amusing side of the question now before the public is the indignation of our "good, respectable people," especially the various Christian gentlemen, who are always to be found in the front ranks of every crusade. Is it that they are absolutely ignorant of the history of religion, and especially of the Christian religion? Or is it that they hope to blind the present generation to the part played in the past by the Church in relation to prostitution? Whatever their reason, they should be the last to cry out against the unfortunate victims of today, since it is known to every intelligent student that prostitution is of religious origin, maintained and fostered for many centuries, not as a shame, but as a virtue, hailed as such by the Gods themselves.
  • "It would seem that the origin of prostitution is to be found primarily in a religious custom, religion, the great conserver of social tradition, preserving in a transformed shape a primitive freedom that was passing out of the general social life. The typical example is that recorded by Herodotus, in the fifth century before Christ, at the Temple of Mylitta, the Babylonian Venus, where every woman, once in her life, had to come and give herself to the first stranger, who threw a coin in her lap, to worship the goddess. Very similar customs existed in other parts of western Asia, in North Africa, in Cyprus, and other islands of the eastern Mediterranean, and also in Greece, where the temple of Aphrodite on the fort at Corinth possessed over a thousand hierodules, dedicated to the service of the goddess.

    "The theory that religious prostitution developed, as a general rule, out of the belief that the generative activity of human beings possessed a mysterious and sacred influence in promoting the fertility of Nature, is maintained by all authoritative writers on the subject. Gradually, however, and when prostitution became an organized institution under priestly influence, religious prostitution developed utilitarian sides, thus helping to increase public revenue.

    "The rise of Christianity to political power produced little change in policy. The leading fathers of the Church tolerated prostitution. Brothels under municipal protection are found in the thirteenth century. They constituted a sort of public service, the directors of them being considered almost as public servants."
    [3 Havelock Ellis, Sex and Society (1937)]



Schutzgeldzahlungen, Kirchensteuer, Zimmervermietung

To this must be added the following from Dr. Sanger's work:

"Pope Clement II. [†1047] issued a bull that prostitutes would be tolerated if they pay a certain amount of their earnings to the Church.
Bild
"Pope Sixtus IV. [1414–1484] was more practical; from one single brothel, which he himself had built, he received an income of 20,000 ducats [Dukaten Goldmünze 3,4g Feingewicht, heutiger Wert ca. 150 Euro x 20.000 pro Jahr d.h. 55 pro Tag (Kundenfrequenz?) ergibt Bordellsteuereinnahmen ca. 3 Millionen Euro im 15. Jahrhundert von einem einzigen Groß-Bordell in Rom].




Bild
In modern times the Church is a little more careful in that direction. At least she does not openly demand tribute from prostitutes. She finds it much more profitable to go in for real estate, like Trinity Church (Wall Street NYC), for instance, to rent out death traps at an exorbitant price to those who live off and by prostitution.





Freie gewerkschaftliche Prostitution im Mittelalter

Much as I should like to, my space will not admit speaking of prostitution in Egypt, Greece, Rome, and during the Middle Ages. The conditions in the latter period are particularly interesting, inasmuch as prostitution was organized into guilds, presided over by a brothel queen. These guilds employed strikes as a medium of improving their condition and keeping a standard price. Certainly that is more practical a method than the one used by the modern wage-slave in society.

It would be one-sided and extremely superficial to maintain that the economic factor is the only cause of prostitution. There are others no less important and vital. That, too, our reformers know, but dare discuss even less than the institution that saps the very life out of both men and women. I refer to the sex question, the very mention of which causes most people moral spasms.





Sexualfeindlichkeit und fehlende Aufklärung als Ursache

It is a conceded fact that woman is being reared as a sex commodity, and yet she is kept in absolute ignorance of the meaning and importance of sex. Everything dealing with that subject is suppressed, and persons who attempt to bring light into this terrible darkness are persecuted and thrown into prison. Yet it is nevertheless true that so long as a girl is not to know how to take care of herself, not to know the function of the most important part of her life, we need not be surprised if she becomes an easy prey to prostitution, or to any other form of a relationship which degrades her to the position of an object for mere sex gratification.

It is due to this ignorance that the entire life and nature of the girl is thwarted and crippled. We have long ago taken it as a self-evident fact that the boy may follow the call of the wild; that is to say, that the boy may, as soon as his sex nature asserts itself, satisfy that nature; but our moralists are scandalized at the very thought that the nature of a girl should assert itself. To the moralist prostitution does not consist so much in the fact that the woman sells her body, but rather that she sells it out of wedlock [Ehestand]. That this is no mere statement is proved by the fact that marriage for monetary considerations is perfectly legitimate, sanctified by law and public opinion, while any other union is condemned and repudiated. Yet a prostitute, if properly defined, means nothing else than "any person for whom sexual relationships are subordinated to gain."
[4 Yves Guyot, La Prostitution 1882]
  • "Those women are prostitutes who sell their bodies for the exercise of the sexual act and make of this a profession."
    [5 Bangert Criminalité et Condition Economique]

    In fact, Banger goes further; he maintains that the act of prostitution is "intrinsically equal to that of a man or woman who contracts a marriage for economic reasons."
Of course, marriage is the goal of every girl, but as thousands of girls cannot marry, our stupid social customs condemn them either to a life of celibacy or prostitution. Human nature asserts itself regardless of all laws, nor is there any plausible reason why nature should adapt itself to a perverted conception of morality.

Society considers the sex experiences of a man as attributes of his general development, while similar experiences in the life of a woman are looked upon as a terrible calamity, a loss of honor and of all that is good and noble in a human being. This double standard of morality has played no little part in the creation and perpetuation of prostitution. It involves the keeping of the young in absolute ignorance on sex matters, which alleged "innocence," together with an overwrought and stifled sex nature, helps to bring about a state of affairs that our Puritans are so anxious to avoid or prevent.

Not that the gratification of sex must needs lead to prostitution; it is the cruel, heartless, criminal persecution of those who dare divert from the beaten track, which is responsible for it.

Girls, mere children, work in crowded, over-heated rooms ten to twelve hours daily at a machine, which tends to keep them in a constant over-excited sex state. Many of these girls have no home or comforts of any kind; therefore the street or some place of cheap amusement is the only means of forgetting their daily routine. This naturally brings them into close proximity with the other sex. It is hard to say which of the two factors brings the girl's over-sexed condition to a climax, but it is certainly the most natural thing that a climax should result. That is the first step toward prostitution. Nor is the girl to be held responsible for it. On the contrary, it is altogether the fault of society, the fault of our lack of understanding, of our lack of appreciation of life in the making; especially is it the criminal fault of our moralists, who condemn a girl for all eternity, because she has gone from the "path of virtue"; that is, because her first sex experience has taken place with out the sanction of the Church.

The girl feels herself a complete outcast, with the doors of home and society closed in her face. Her entire training and tradition is such that the girl herself feels depraved and fallen, and therefore has no ground to stand upon, or any hold that will lift her up, instead of dragging her down. Thus society creates the victims that it afterwards vainly attempts to get rid of. The meanest, most depraved and decrepit man still considers himself too good to take as his wife the woman whose grace he was quite willing to buy, even though he might thereby save her from a life of horror. Nor can she turn to her own sister for help. In her stupidity the latter deems herself too pure and chaste, not realizing that her own position is in many respects even more deplorable than her sister's of the street.
  • "The wife who married for money, compared with the prostitute," says Havelock Ellis, "is the true scab. She is paid less, gives much more in return in labor and care, and is absolutely bound to her master. The prostitute never signs away the right over her own person, she retains her freedom and personal rights, nor is she always compelled to submit to man's embrace."
Nor does the better-than-thou woman realize the apologist claim of Lecky that "though she may be the supreme type of vice, she is also the most efficient guardian of virtue. But for her, happy homes would be polluted, unnatural and harmful practice would abound."





Der Freier als Krankheiten-Vektor

Moralists are ever ready to sacrifice one-half of the human race for the sake of some miserable institution which they can not outgrow. As a matter of fact, prostitution is no more a safeguard for the purity of the home than rigid laws are a safeguard against prostitution. Fully 50% of married men are patrons of brothels. It is through this virtuous element that the married women--nay, even the children--are infected with venereal diseases. Yet society has not a word of condemnation for the man, while no law is too monstrous to be set in motion against the helpless victim. She is not only preyed upon by those who use her, but she is also absolutely at the mercy of every policeman and miserable detective on the beat, the officials at the station house, the authorities in every prison.





Schmiergelder an die "Schmiere"

In a recent book by a woman who was for twelve years the mistress of a "house," are to be found the following figures: "The authorities compelled me to pay every month fines between $14.70 to $29.70, the girls would pay from $5.70 to $9.70 to the police." Considering that the writer did her business in a small city, that the amounts she gives do not include extra bribes and fines, one can readily see the tremendous revenue the police department derives from the blood money of its victims, whom it will not even protect. Woe to those who refuse to pay their toll; they would be rounded up like cattle, "if only to make a favorable impression upon the good citizens of the city, or if the powers needed extra money on the side. For the warped mind who believes that a fallen woman is incapable of human emotion it would be impossible to realize the grief, the disgrace, the tears, the wounded pride that was ours every time we were pulled in."

Strange, isn't it, that a woman who has kept a "house" should be able to feel that way? But stranger still that a good Christian world should bleed and fleece such women, and give them nothing in return except obloquy [Schimpf und Verleumdung] and persecution. Oh, for the charity of a Christian world!





Migration von Europa nach NYC, USA

Much stress is laid on white slaves being imported into America. How would America ever retain her virtue if Europe did not help her out? I will not deny that this may be the case in some instances, any more than I will deny that there are emissaries of Germany and other countries luring economic slaves into America; but I absolutely deny that prostitution is recruited to any appreciable extent from Europe. It may be true that the majority of prostitutes of New York City are foreigners, but that is because the majority of the population is foreign. The moment we go to any other American city, to Chicago or the Middle West, we shall find that the number of foreign prostitutes is by far a minority.

Equally exaggerated is the belief that the majority of street girls in this city were engaged in this business before they came to America. Most of the girls speak excellent English, are Americanized in habits and appearance,--a thing absolutely impossible unless they had lived in this country many years. That is, they were driven into prostitution by American conditions, by the thoroughly American custom for excessive display of finery and clothes, which, of course, necessitates money,--money that cannot be earned in shops or factories.

In other words, there is no reason to believe that any set of men would go to the risk and expense of getting foreign products, when American conditions are overflooding the market with thousands of girls. On the other hand, there is sufficient evidence to prove that the export of American girls for the purpose of prostitution is by no means a small factor.





Amerikanische Sexworker migrieren ins Ausland

Thus Clifford G. Roe, ex-Assistant State Attorney of Cook County, Ill., makes the open charge that New England girls are shipped to Panama for the express use of men in the employ of Uncle Sam. Mr. Roe adds that "there seems to be an underground railroad between Boston and Washington which many girls travel." Is it not significant that the railroad should lead to the very seat of Federal authority? That Mr. Roe said more than was desired in certain quarters is proved by the fact that he lost his position. It is not practical for men in office to tell tales from school.

[The American Vigilance Association by Clifford G. Roe, Journal of the American Institute of Criminal Law and Criminology, 3, (1913): 806-809.]

The excuse given for the conditions in Panama is that there are no brothels in the Canal Zone. That is the usual avenue of escape for a hypocritical world that dares not face the truth. Not in the Canal Zone, not in the city limits,--therefore prostitution does not exist.

Next to Mr. Roe, there is James Bronson Reynolds, who has made a thorough study of the white slave traffic in Asia. As a staunch American citizen and friend of the future Napoleon of America, Theodore Roosevelt, he is surely the last to discredit the virtue of his country. Yet we are informed by him that in Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Yokohama, the Augean stables of American vice are located. There American prostitutes have made themselves so conspicuous that in the Orient "American girl" is synonymous with prostitute. Mr. Reynolds reminds his countrymen that while Americans in China are under the protection of our consular representatives, the Chinese in America have no protection at all. Every one who knows the brutal and barbarous persecution Chinese and Japanese endure on the Pacific Coast, will agree with Mr. Reynolds.

[The Union of the American Vigilance Association and the American Federation for Sex Hygiene by James Bronson Reynolds, Vigilance 27 (October 1913): 1.]

In view of the above facts it is rather absurd to point to Europe as the swamp whence come all the social diseases of America. Just as absurd is it to proclaim the myth that the Jews furnish the largest contingent of willing prey. I am sure that no one will accuse me of nationalistic tendencies. I am glad to say that I have developed out of them, as out of many other prejudices. If, therefore, I resent the statement that Jewish prostitutes are imported, it is not because of any Judaistic sympathies, but because of the facts inherent in the lives of these people. No one but the most superficial will claim that Jewish girls migrate to strange lands, unless they have some tie or relation that brings them there. The Jewish girl is not adventurous. Until recent years she had never left home, not even so far as the next village or town, except it were to visit some relative. Is it then credible that Jewish girls would leave their parents or families, travel thousands of miles to strange lands, through the influence and promises of strange forces? Go to any of the large incoming steamers and see for yourself if these girls do not come either with their parents, brothers, aunts, or other kinsfolk. There may be exceptions, of course, but to state that large numbers of Jewish girls are imported for prostitution, or any other purpose, is simply not to know Jewish psychology.

Those who sit in a glass house do wrong to throw stones about them; besides, the American glass house is rather thin, it will break easily, and the interior is anything but a gainly sight.





Vermittlung, Zuhälterei und Arbeitsteilung

To ascribe the increase of prostitution to alleged importation, to the growth of the cadet system, or similar causes, is highly superficial. I have already referred to the former. As to the cadet system, abhorrent as it is, we must not ignore the fact that it is essentially a phase of modern prostitution,--a phase accentuated by suppression and graft, resulting from sporadic crusades against the social evil.

The procurer is no doubt a poor specimen of the human family, but in what manner is he more despicable than the policeman who takes the last cent from the street walker, and then locks her up in the station house? Why is the cadet more criminal, or a greater menace to society, than the owners of department stores and factories, who grow fat on the sweat of their victims, only to drive them to the streets? I make no plea for the cadet, but I fail to see why he should be mercilessly hounded, while the real perpetrators of all social iniquity enjoy immunity and respect. Then, too, it is well to remember that it is not the cadet who makes the prostitute. It is our sham and hypocrisy that create both the prostitute and the cadet.

Until 1894 very little was known in America of the procurer. Then we were attacked by an epidemic of virtue. Vice was to be abolished, the country purified at all cost. The social cancer was therefore driven out of sight, but deeper into the body. Keepers of brothels, as well as their unfortunate victims, were turned over to the tender mercies of the police. The inevitable consequence of exorbitant bribes, and the penitentiary, followed.

While comparatively protected in the brothels, where they represented a certain monetary value, the girls now found themselves on the street, absolutely at the mercy of the graft-greedy police. Desperate, needing protection and longing for affection, these girls naturally proved an easy prey for cadets, themselves the result of the spirit of our commercial age. Thus the cadet system was the direct outgrowth of police persecution, graft, and attempted suppression of prostitution. It were sheer folly to confound this modern phase of the social evil with the causes of the latter.





Mere suppression and barbaric enactments can serve but to embitter, and further degrade, the unfortunate victims of ignorance and stupidity. The latter has reached its highest expression in the proposed law to make humane treatment of prostitutes a crime, punishing any one sheltering a prostitute with five years' imprisonment and $10,000 fine. Such an attitude merely exposes the terrible lack of understanding of the true causes of prostitution, as a social factor, as well as manifesting the Puritanic spirit of the Scarlet Letter days.

There is not a single modern writer on the subject who does not refer to the utter futility [Sinnlosigkeit] of legislative methods in coping with the issue. Thus Dr. Blaschko finds that governmental suppression and moral crusades accomplish nothing save driving the evil into secret channels, multiplying its dangers to society. Havelock Ellis, the most thorough and humane student of prostitution, proves by a wealth of data that the more stringent the methods of persecution the worse the condition becomes. Among other data we learn that in France, "in 1560, Charles IX. abolished brothels through an edict, but the numbers of prostitutes were only increased, while many new brothels appeared in unsuspected shapes, and were more dangerous. In spite of all such legislation, or because of it, there has been no country in which prostitution has played a more conspicuous part."
[6 Havelock Ellis, Sex and Society]

An educated public opinion, freed from the legal and moral hounding of the prostitute, can alone help to ameliorate present conditions. Wilful shutting of eyes and ignoring of the evil as a social factor of modern life, can but aggravate matters. We must rise above our foolish notions of "better than thou," and learn to recognize in the prostitute a product of social conditions. Such a realization will sweep away the attitude of hypocrisy, and insure a greater understanding and more humane treatment. As to a thorough eradication of prostitution, nothing can accomplish that save a complete transvaluation of all accepted values especially the moral ones--coupled with the abolition of industrial slavery.

Sozialhilfe im Viktorianisches Zeitalter

#219

Beitrag von Marc of Frankfurt »

Vor 200 Jahren gab es im Viktorianischen England ähnliche Zusammenhänge von angeblichen Opfern, Hilfsvereinen und Frauen und Prostituierten, die keine Hilfe wollten:


Charles Dickens (1786–1851) wurde finanziert von der wohlhabenden Philantropin und Sozialreformerin Angela Burdett-Coutts, um ein Heim für gefallene Frauen und Mädchen zu betreiben, the Urania Cottage in Shepherd’s Bush. Aber nicht allen Prostituierten gefiel das.


In February 1858, The Times ran an article by a self-confessed “Unfortunate” who had taken up prostitution.

Beitrag von Marc of Frankfurt »

Hier die Fortsetzung zu diesem super guten Vortrag von letzem Jahr.

Marc of Frankfurt hat geschrieben:Zur Psychologie der Sexarbeit:

Erkenntnisse einer Sozialarbeiterin (=Elendsmanagerin) und Wissenschaftlerin (=Geschichtenerzählerin) die nach Jobkrise und Therapie zur Lebensweisheit der "Allumfassenden Warmherzigkeit // wholeheartedness" gelangt



Es geht in diesem herausragenden englischen TED-Vortrag darum wie man/frau/sexworker in einer unperfekten Welt ein "Krieger des Herzens" werden kann, der statt Emotionen zu betäuben vollen Lebenssinn und Zugehörigkeit erfahren kann (wholeheartedly embrace vulnerability and belonging)...

Ich denke Sexworker sind zu einem Großteil genau diese nach Authentizität strebenden Personen die sie beschreibt. Der Kampf mit dem Stigma (Stigma-Dekonstruktion und -Management, d.h. der Zwang zum Doppelleben) stellen uns jedoch vor besondere Herausforderungen.





Ihre Lösungs-Strategien
  • Konsequenzen tragen
    [Ernsthaftigkeit, Tapferkeit, Mut...]
    Verantwortung übernehmen, Schmerz, Unsicherheit, Komplexität aushalten // embrace vulnerability, für Lösungen kämpfen statt Gefühle betäuben, kontrollieren oder schauspielern
  • let ourselves be seen
    [coming out]
    Verletzlichkeiten zugeben, Authentizität leben
  • love with our whole hearts
    even if there is no garantee
    [Krieger des Herzen // courage to live wholeheartedly]
  • practice gratitutde and joy
    [Dankbarkeit, Demut, Selbstliebe, Ekstase]
  • i am enough
    [Suffizienz]
    Annehmen, Zufriedenheit, Selbstbeschränkung, Selbsstvertrauen

  • Dr. Brené Brown
    Vulnerability researcher since many years
    Verletzlichkeits-Forscherin

    "We need to listen to shame"
    Wir müssen uns der Scham stellen



    Shame is an unspoken epidemic,
    the secret behind many forms of broken behavior.

    Brené Brown, whose earlier talk on vulnerability became a viral hit (4 Million views), explores what can happen when people confront their shame head-on. Her own humor, humanity and vulnerability shine through every word.

    www.ted.com/talks/brene_brown_listening_to_shame.html

She became a scientist to avoid vulnerability.
She was working hard to stay small, staying right under the radar. (So wie es Sexworker und Migranten machen im Umgang mit Behörden etc.)

But her research revealed that vulnerability is essential for full hearted living.

This was her breakdown and spiritual awakening. (Siehe erstes Video)

Vulnerability is not weakness!

It is:
- emotional risk
- exposure
- uncertainity
part of our daily life

Vulnerability it is our most accurate measurement of courage.





Gesellschaftliches Tabu: Verletztlichkeit und Scham.

Vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation, creativity and change.

Creating is what was not in existance before.
Adaptability to change (Z.B. in der Finanzkrise).

Auf dem Weg von der Verletzlichkeit (Vulnerability) zur Tatkraft (Courage) liegt die Schwelle der Scham (Shame).

Animisten(?) definieren Scham als den Spiegel(?) der Seele.

So ist z.B. eine Debatte über Rassismus immer mit Scham verbunden, weil es geht um Privilegien.

Guilt / Schuld: "I did something bad" >> behaviour
Shame / Scham: "I am bad" >> identity, self


Scham ist der inner Kritiker:
- "ich bin nicht schön genug"
- "ich bin nicht gut genug"...
- "wer bin ich eigentlich?"

Aber, im Leben geht es nicht um den Kritiker und Bedenkenträger, sondern um Lösungen
(sich dem Leben zu stellen, Manager statt Wissenschaftler;).

Schuld: "Sorry I made a mistake" >> Entschuldigung, Beichte, Sühne
Scham: "Sorry I am a mistake" >> und was dann?


Folgen von Scham: addiction, depression, violence, agression, mobbing, suicide, eating disorder ... bullying
(d.h. Sündenbock-Mechanismus d.h. Scham wird in Schuld beim anderen transformiert).

Nur Soziopathen sind Scham-unempfindlich.

Schuld ist umgekehrt proportional dazu(?)





Shame is organized by gender.

Female: do it all and perfect and don't let them see you are sweating.
US-norms: nice, thin, modest, use all available resources for appearance.
Scham für Frauen ist das Netz unerreichbarer Normen. Eine Zwangsjacke.

Male: do not be perceived as weak.
US-norms: emotional control, primacy of work, pursuit of status, violence.
Scham für Männer ist -in den Augen der Frauen- nicht versagen zu dürfen.

Shame is build on secrecy, silence and judgement.





Empathy is the antidote to shame.

"Me too", Solidarität, (Coming-out, Entstigmatisierung)

Und es gibt einen Weg dahin, denn die Welt will keine roboterhaften Superhelden,
sondern wirkliche Menschen, die sich ihre Schwächen eingestehen und mit ihnen umgehen können.
