Language and sexual violence

A couple of posts I've read today that caught my attention.
One from Karen Healy's blog: Girls read Comics (and they're pissed)
She's talking about Garth Ennis' the Pro. I must admit that when I read this I wasn't overly impressed. But one thing that Karen has said really struck me:

The thing about prostitution – and here and henceforth I’m referring specifically to female prostitutes – is that the culture of the West goes on and on about sexy being great and empowering for women.()...and then the worst thing you can say to a woman is to call her a whore.

This is part of what I was trying to say in my earlier post - Language, Sex, Wonder Woman. or at least I was thinking it in my head or something. I don't know, this has been a particularly crappy week.

Anyway, the second post I saw on this topic was from the f word. My brain's too fried to read or take in all of it but it's an interesting article. I think.
