"John" is NOT the same as the "N-word"

[Sex worker activist Maxine] Doogan also criticized the “john” label with this bold statement: “Using the term ‘john’ to describe our clients is like using the N-word. It’s a type of epithet, it’s disrespectful and the city should stop using it immediately.”

One of the commenters sums it up best: “You had me until “n-word”. Referring to a paying customer as a john may not be nice in your book, but it is ABSOLUTELY NOT equal to the n-bomb. Naming someone a john is a way to keep them anonymous in the current and historical atmosphere of criminality involved with seeking to exchange money for sex. The “n-word” is racist and “john” is not. As a former trans queer youth sexworker, I cannot share this story with any pride because of that ignorant analogy.”
