lookit. we all know what "hooker" means. i don't care what some urban/to-your-liking dictionary says, its a person who sells their body (sex!) in exchange for money. IF you do not or have not made someone cum for cash, than you are not a fucking hooker. come up with your own term. if you are an artist who feels "raped" by society or pressed down upon, welcome, you're in fact, just a fucking member of society. it’s insulting. yes, its just a word, but its also a profession that only those who do it knows what it feels like. i’m sick of people poaching this word in order to get attention or gain some sort of grit. every time i meet a new john there’s a chance that i could be killed or arrested…..is this the same as a person hawking their paintings? i think not.
