Sidewalk Snippet ~ {5/21/12}

The clients seemed to come in waves with a lot of time between groups. The long quiet time between groups left the antis without a focus for their words. There were no clients around when the antis turned their attention to the escorts. A collection of things were said to us to try to get us to engage in conversation.

“Does it make you feel good when you escort women who are crying?”

“What motivates you to get up in the morning and come down here? Is it hate?”

“You don’t care about the women. You only care about fighting with us.”

“Were you sad to see the woman you helped earlier leave the abortion mill? She decided not to have an abortion. Does that make you sad?”

“Are you going to be ready for God’s judgment?”

“I am not judging you. I am just expressing an opinion. I will pray you see the truth.”

The days the antis appear bored can be trying too.

  1. I know you won’t publish this, and I’m okay with that. But I did want you to know that not “antis” feel or think the same way about escorts. Although there have been a few heated moments between me and some particular escorts, I truly believe that all of you guys escort because you believe it is right. I don’t think you do it out of hate or malice at all, but out of concern for people. It would really take a warped brain to go down to the clinic early on Saturday mornings just to fight with people. Sleep and time with my family is way more important than that. I digress. My point is this, that I am an “anti” who doesn’t think that escorts escort out of hate but out of doing what they believe is right.

    • Stephanie,

      We decided to publish your comment. Your respectful approach in stating your thoughts is appreciated. We do know not all antis feel the same about escorts. You are right. We escort because we believe it is right. We also recognize you are there because you believe you are doing the right thing.

      Thank you for your input,

  2. They’re bullies, sure and true. The bored antis are “trying” is a good way to put it, because they want to bully you, too.
    I have been called Satan’s whore, the whore of Babylon, and my favorite, “so you’re not a witch, huh? Then how do you explain that Farmer’s Almanac umbrella?”! (anyway, I never said if I was or wasn’t a witch, but I did spit out my coffee in laughter at that comment!).
    The reason they bring up witch is to further bully us. They use the verse that says “do not suffer a witch to live” as intimidation. Yeah, such good people. (gag)
    Bottom line, they crave people to bully in order to make themselves feel superior, and they show off for their companions. Those same bullies are astonished and taken aback when someone responds in kind.

    • Kittybrat,

      We have been called all kinds of names too. My favorite is one anti who calls us “Spawn of Satan” all the time. This anti will actually recoil as if burned if we accidentally brush up against them. If we wear our “Trust Women” shirts, the “game” is on. Their main purpose is to come out to bully and if there are no clients around, escorts are the next best thing. A lot of us have developed the thousand-yard stare to just ignore them. Of course, it doesn’t stop them.

      Keep up your good work and carry your umbrella when it rains. 🙂

      Thanks for the input,
