Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti is calling out Rudy Giuliani for misogynistic and dangerous comments he made about women in the adult film industry. In an attempt to discredit Daniels’ defamation case against the president, Giuliani said women like Daniels don’t deserve respect and lack credibility.
As the Daily Dot reports, Giuliani made these comments while speaking in Tel Aviv, Israel earlier this week.
“I don’t believe Stormy Daniels,” he said. “I’m sorry I don’t respect a porn star the way I respect a career woman or a woman of substance or a woman who has great respect for herself as a woman and as a person and isn’t going to sell her body for sexual exploitation. So, Stormy, you want to bring a case? Let me cross-examine you, because the business you are in entitles you to no degree of giving your credibility any weight. Secondly, explain to me how she can be damaged? She has no reputation. If you’re going to sell your body for money, you just don’t have a reputation. I may be old fashioned, I don’t know.”
He repeated these sentiments on CNN Thursday morning. “If you’re a feminist and you support the porn industry you should turn in your credentials,” he said.
Rudy Giuliani, a walking garbage can, has decided to call out and shit on all sex workers in an attempt to simply discredit one, which I’d say, is quite dangerous. Whether you believe Stormy Daniels is lying or not, the idea that ALL sex workers are somehow deceitful is wildly stupid.
Do sex workers deserve respect?
A woman who is a stripper or porn star or prostitute should not be treated less than because of their profession. They’re not out here selling heroin to children or like, murdering, I don’t know let’s say, children. They are having sex with consenting adults in exchange for financial compensation.
There seems to be this implied bias against sex workers for what I can imagine being how ‘easy’ their job appears.
Giuliana says that ‘career’ women or a ‘woman of substance’ demands respect but a woman who busts her ass (literally sometimes) to get to the top of the porn industry and gets her own personal brand so high that a future president pays to sleep with her, is somehow less than some chick who went to school for 4 years to go teach kids at a high school that are like, 5 years younger than her some social studies lessons that those kids had already learned in middle school.
I dated a pole dancer1 once, and that looked like an impossibly physical task. I’m writing this article laying on my back because I don’t have the upper body strength to sit up and strippers are out here climbing on poles like Olympians. Let’s not pretend like sex workers are just chillin and getting free money.
And thanks to human bile like Giuliani who write legislation that makes life harder for sex workers, prostitution is incredibly unsafe and dangerous but these women have no protection because old white men in power, who often pay for prostitutes, refuse to acknowledge these women as equal living humans that deserve respect.
So fuuuuuuck Rudy Giuliani who would absolutely sleep with Stormy Daniels if given the opportunity.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think Rudy Giuliani should be thrown in that garbage fire that almost killed Woody and Buzz in Toy Story 3. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
- And by dated I mean we dry humped a few times and I didn’t know she was a pole dancer until she stopped answering my texts and I stalked her Instagram to find the guy she replaced me with. Dating. Is. Hard. ↵
