Theatre of Cruelty

Lincoln Clarkes' heroines is a disturbing article to me. The guy took some fascinating pictures of prostitutes in Vancouver BC, but his outlook appears very twisted to me.

I don't think prostitutes are "strong women" or "survivors". Maybe survivors in the sense that someone who's just been shot and is bleeding to death is currently surviving. I also don't care for his dumb play on word "heroines". Plays on words don't do much for me when they're about people who are suffering and going to die.

Everything isn't art, guy. Some things, like young women on drugs, being used by the sex industry, and dying before their time, are real, and it takes more than a spoonful of sugar to make it all better.
