Pro$$ie

87 posts in this topic

The word Pro$$ie was derived out off spite, I kinda like it, it has my old currency sign in the middle, although I prefer ££'s these days it reminds me of home, so I am claiming it.........

If anyone has any objections please email them to fluffykinsandkissestoyou@yorkescort.co or fku@yorkescort.co for short :)

I Have to say that it's not a word I like to hear. I think it is demeaning to women. I will be interested to see what the other ladies feel.

It's like any of them Paul whore, prostitute ect, there is nothing wrong with those words if they are used correctly, when they are spat at you out of spite then there is a problem. It was derived and is being used to demean just now.

Besides sticks and stones and all that :)

Good on ya Gems!

I've noticed that word being used in a demeaning context recently on here, perhaps those members with misogynistic tendencies should take it back to the hole they crawled out of!

Hi Gemma, nice to bump in to you here.

I like that word to, I did not even realise it was meant as a derogatory term to be honest.

I like all the names I am called, mind you takes a lot to rile me in this paid sex world.

I call myself a prostitute, whore, dirty bitch, loads of terms really.

I find it is the guys who tend to not like those type of words though, not us ladies.

Lucy :)

P.S. I like your new signature words of type on here!

Yes, all these words can be demeaning or derogatory if that is the intent of the user and often only he knows. There are, of course, some who use it with that intent but then don’t have the courage to admit it.

But why not go for Pro££ie and be a little different?

Context is always important.. some posters here use the term for effect... to garner a response from other posters... Those poster who use the term here and elsewhere are to my mind spitting it out and trying to get some form of reaction.. some of those then run back to another site and brag to the friends they have on another site.. In the end I just find those poster very immature and childish.. best way is to ignore them.. Or perhaps G could change it on the word filter if it is causing problems.

I'm happy to laugh and joke about being a WG or a whore or whatever- when it's coming from a lighthearted place or used between friends it's OK, but when used on here by men it does feel a little derogatory. It's kinda like the racial N word which can be used affectionately between mates, but totally inappropriate and offensive mostly!

Apart from that the ridiculous $$s just irritate the hell out of me.

Saying that, I'm not such a sensitive petal that I would let it wind me up on here and I kinda like that Gemma is embracing it!

Well said Gemma.

Let this be a loud shout out to all those who seek to make us feel 'demeaned' by the service which we perform.

I have said for years, you can call me hooker, whore, WG, whatever you choose. I know what I am, and I AM NOT ASHAMED.

Yes, I do my job for money. As do we all. I am lucky in that I have found a job which I can be paid for and enjoy. So yes, I claim those dollar signs. Pro$$ie's ROCK!

The so called derogatory words dont bother me to be honest as they do not demean the women they are being aimed at but in fact the men that are using them in a derogatory way. It shows their lack of character, manners and highlights their own insecurities and lack of self worth as they are showing their bitterness and resentment of being forced to pay for sex. I feel these poor guys need more love than most as they clearly suffer from a sense of deep seated self hatred and their one and only outlet is to take thier frustrations out on the women they feel should not dare to speak out for fear of losing a booking or two. Lets all send them a mental hug and hope that their lives improve to a level where they feel they do not have to speak about people this way just to be noticed. :D

Because that would detract from the intent here!

A very wise woman not so far away recently told me that if you embrace something negative you take away its power, or words to that effect (she can take a bow if so inclined)

It was I who told Gemma that, but I won't bow because it was a direct quote from a lady who used to post here a few years ago, Mrs Smith.

I remember Mrs Smith. Has anyone heard from her lately?

"Pro$$ie" is one of those snipes used by guys who resent paying for sex and ends up only making them seem even more pathetic than they do already.

But we should have a more truly British version. I suggest "tro££op".

Well, quite. Like you, I'm lucky enough to enjoy the work I get paid for, but if the money wasn't forthcoming, you wouldn't see me for dust.

It reminded me of the sort of Linux geek that refers to "micro$oft", or for those with really long memories "Compu$pend" (aka CompuServe) as they believe all software should be free.

Gemma, you may claim it if you wish but you may have to share it with some rather inadequate people when they are in a spiteful mood and wish to be insulting.

Feel free to claim it, and send it back to the hel from which it came.

However I would ask those who are (rightly) battering those who would use such terms as an insult, have a care not to tar us all with the same brush.

Nobody is tarring anyone. We can clearly see the difference. It's not a gender differentation, it's one of attitude, behaviour and belief. :)

RR I have a special place for you :) there is no tarring with any brush (although I am a bit partial to a bit o the ole tar brush me sel), unless you actually use that particular term of 'endearment' and mean it in the context I have touched upon there is no worries here.

I vaguely remember a thread, about 2 years ago, about what the female side of the punting fraternity (I can't spell sororiety!) prefer to be called.

My memory tells me that Working Girl (abbreviated to WG) was the preferred term for most and that's the one I try to use. I feel it carries an element of truth and respect.

The only down side is that some of the "more mature" ladies might prefer to be called "working ladies" which would be shortened to WL's. Doesn't have quite the same ring to it.

WL I think that is PtrLeeds :) Really speaking as a pro, I am not bothered what I am called as long as it is a term of endearment x
