There was a radio show that I should’ve called in to. It featured two pimps discussing their business. I listened to the podcast until I got so mad I couldn’t listen any more. So the following is based on a small part of the show. Not my most informed moment, but then, I can’t say I really care if I somehow harm the perception of pimps with my ignorance.
What amazed and irritated me the most was how the pimps seemed to believe they were providing business for their girls. When was the last time a man approached them asking for a blowjob? Maybe I’m wrong, but I’m pretty damn sure that without any women, the pimps would have no business.
My belief is that the business follows the pussy, not the pimp.
They used all sorts of corporate jargon to make themselves sound like legitimate and good employers. While these two pimps came across as fairly sharp, the fundamental fact remains that they’re not employers. Not unless their women can give two weeks notice and leave, have access to health insurance, maybe a 401k and earn most of they bring in (minus taxes). This is not how pimps operate.
One of the hosts tried to pin them down on the earnings issue (how much do the girls get to keep) but the question was sidestepped. Maybe later in the show the question was addressed. I don’t know, I didn’t have the patience to listen that far. I became infuriated pretty quickly.
I love the belief all pimps seem to share: only they (almost always uneducated and from a poor background) can teach a dumb pussy how to talk to a rich man. I’d like to know where they get their information. Lifetime subscriptions to The Robb Report and Town & Country? An excess of Robin Leach? Secret training sessions with Donald Trump?
I’d love to liberate all the women working under pimps, teach them they can run their own business and reap the rewards. If they still want to support a man with their earnings, fine. But it should be a choice, not because they were emotionally coerced to believe the only man who can possibly love them is one who takes all their money and forces them to earn more.
