Anna Szilagyi describes how dehumanizing rhetoric — a key hallmark of Dangerous Speech — affects our thoughts and perceptions, making violence more acceptable. Indeed, terms that identify different groups of people as pests, deadly animals, reptiles, parasites, disease, filth, zombies, or demons, have been used more and more conveniently by powerful political actors in various parts of the world. They are of no use to society anymore. We also see that on some occasions, politicians seemingly speak in a literal sense, yet, through unspoken but widely understood connotations, they actually activate the same metaphor-family.
The answer was short and simple, yet the explanation slightly longer.
The subject matter of bar girls has been discussed into oblivion on hundreds of other websites. It is part of it, but the longer you live here the more insignificant it becomes. I don't enjoy degrading people either. I don't enjoy talking about women as if they are inhuman, as if they are objects to be sexually exploited.
I have a daughter and a mother. Don't get me wrong: I have no problem with casual sex. I am not a prude. What consenting adults do together is up to them. So, the point of this one and only article about bar girls is to go beyond the heavy make-up and high heels and look at the industry from the ground up.
To strip naked no pun intended the circumstances that have resulted in so many women entering the industry and ultimately being de-humanised by punters and society at large.
A sub-standard school education, if she finished school at all. Married young in a rural village — usually in the North or North East somewhere, and partnered by her family with an ill-suited young man, who quickly becomes restless and ends up boozing and womanising like his father did, and his father before that.
Boy leaves girl with one or two kids. Girl receives no social security money from the state, or child maintenance from the father of her children.
Girl then becomes determined to give a better life to her children, and to elevate the face of her family in the village. Girl hears from another girl that working in a bar in the city, or on one of the popular tourist islands, is the best way to make fast money, and to meet a rich foreign boyfriend who will be prepared to take on her kids and support her parents or a story very similar to that.
So even if the girl wants to leave after arrival, she will have to work off that debt first. This is a devious way to keep the recruitment numbers high and the deserters low.
Once you've crossed the line, you might as well try and make it work, right? I see a girl who felt she had to sell her soul, to go against the morals she was brought up in an attempt to better the future of her family.
I see a girl who has sacrificed her own happiness, and potentially her mental stability, for the benefit of others. No girl should ever have to do that. But as I have covered, the unfair cultural pressures and limited choice of economic progression force the hand into the fire.
I very much doubt it. And it's this sugar-coated version of prostitution that makes it easier to ignore the truth.
They are low income earning men that will generally resemble similar characteristics to the inadequate man they were once married to. As we know, gambling, alcoholism and abuse is rife in such economic settings. Moreover, once a Thai girl has been in the bar, she will struggle to get a Thai boyfriend at all.
If you know an iota about Thai culture, you'll know that a girl who has worked in a farang-style beer bar will struggle to earn the respect of other Thais going forward. Of course, few will refer to her as a prostitute. What's strange is that Thailand has an abundance of what one might refer to as average, middle-class single women — university educated and hardworking — yet many foreign men choose to hang around in the bar scene paying for sex while looking for a partner.
They then wonder why it all goes belly up. Not so long ago a friend of mine was in town and he wanted to walk down the infamous bar-laden Soi Nana in Bangkok.Criminal Law Philippine Bar Examination Questions and Suggested Answers (JayArhSals&Rollan).
