This thread will stay locked, because it's doing the same thing the previous thread did and I think we've had enough of picking through what some sees as the negative traits of ethnic clients. And the previous thread should stay, because the inconsistencies dotted throughout it displays exactly that, inconsistence.
As has been said by the mods numerous times, an escort will always have the freedom of choice to see who she wants to see, but don't feel like your nose is put out of joint when your reason for not seeing a certain ethnic minority is due to their "characteristics", when it's really more to do with the colour of their skin. Characteristics that are also displayed by white clients. Ian raises an excellent point when he asks that you point out a race that isn't disrespectful to women in one way or another, you can't.
In all cultures women will always be seen as 2nd class citizens. Some races are just more subtle about their misogyny than others. In the 100+ thread "how not to book an escort" how many of the examples members have mentioned do you think are of an ethnic background, simply because they make up a small percentage of client base? My guess would be very little. But you know what, you will put up with it and put it down to it being part and parcel of the industry. It's annoying when white clients are disrespectful, when an elderly client asks for an OAP discount, or when an student asks for the same. But when either of those two examples are of Southern Asian descent, to you it becomes more aggressive and the reason why they ask for a discount is now down to the colour of their skin.
A timely example is the warning put up by Kinky By Nature. As far as we can tell now, the timewaster she mentions has been in touch with three escorts, including herself, yet he was racially abusive towards her. Why? All she did was behave the same as any other escort would. The only thing she did wrong was to not see this person. But yet out of the three examples he was the most aggressive towards her, simply because of the identity that stands out the most, the colour of her skin (I'm making the assumption that Rooby and Naughty Jas are both white otherwise that's my theory blown out of the water,lol)
And this is what escorts do, you immediately mark minority clients because of the colour of their skin, it's less to do with what they do, because you will put up with, and continue to see the majority of your bread and butter, your white clients. But you swear blind that's not racism. In Kinky's warning the timewaster says he wasn't racist, he probably doesn't think he is. But to pick out the one trait that makes her different to all the other escorts he's interacted with and turn it into a negative conotation makes him racist, whether or not he believes he is.
Nobody will start a thread dedicated White clients, because they're all great, aren't they? Nobody's had any problems with White clients. Nobody's had problems where their money was taken back from them after a booking, where they've been asked to provide drugs, when they've asked for discounts or in Amy's case, when they've been robbed. It's true, some races are more aggressive towards women than others, but misogyny is world-wide ladies. Don't fool yourselves into thinking that it's exclusive to any one particular race. You're deluded if you think it is. You're also in the wrong business.
You're uncomfortable with being labelled racist, that's the common thread throughout. The way you see it, you think you're minimising the risks that come with being in this business, you become selective, which is your choice at the end of the day. But when you become intolerant of a whole race simply because of the behaviour of a few, it's racism. You don't see yourself as so. But it is what it is.
