Martha Brucato Explains Sex Workers Art Show

Martha Brucato, the HealthyDevils organizer of the Sex Workers Art Show, wrote a guest column in today's Duke Chronicle entitled "Returning Meaning to the Sex Workers Art Show," in which she attempts to explain some of the potential educational messages delivered by the show. DSEDuke will try to avoid evaluating gender studies rhetoric and leave it to the reader to evaluate her interpretations of the performers respective messages.

It is disappointing that these messages should require such extensive and creative explanation.

Can't wait to hear your thoughts about this!

It is useless to argue with Brucato.

Any human who demands 'respect' for a naked person inserting a sparkler up their ass in front of an auditorium of people is a human who has moved so far past common decency that they are now unmoved by common sense.

In a previous Chronicle article, " Brucato lamented that the show 'definitely was not as salacious'...as I had heard in the past." Sounds as if she had hoped to be titillated or, as Larry Moneta would say, "personally gratified."
