Addressing Problematic Elements from The Beaver Show

Addressing Problematic Elements from The Beaver Show


Hi, it’s Jacq the Stripper. I’m here today
to address some of the problematic shit that I wrote in The Beaver Show, my book. I was reading The Beaver Show for Audible, back in September. I was really stoked, it was a great experience, but I was sitting in this sound booth and there were parts where I was just like… I’m not reading that. There are parts of this book that I skipped over because they were shitty. They were offensive. I wrote The Beaver Show when I was 24 and 25 years old. I’m 31 now. A lot has happened since then. I’ve learned a lot. I’m sure some of you walked out of the womb woke as fuck and intersectional But I certainly did not. First of all: typos. This book is rife with typos. I don’t really fucking care about that. The important things though: I was pretty whorephobic in this
book. We call it ‘lateral whorephobia’ I definitely had lateral whorephobia. I’m pretty sure a lot of us did when we first got into the sex industry because that’s kind of what we’re conditioned to be. Lateral whorephobia, if you don’t
know what that is, is where a sex worker judges another sex worker for not having the same boundaries as they do. Another thing that I did was I fetishized black men in this book, and that’s not fucking cool I’m sorry that I did that. I’m also sorry that I was really fat phobic I definitely projected a lot of
my body insecurities onto other people and that’s shitty, and I’m sorry I did
that. The reason why I have learned, and have been able to check myself is because of you, the Internet. I will probably have to address problematic things I’m saying this week, too, and I’m okay with that. I think it’s important to
grow. I think it’s important to acknowledge where you’ve said things
that aren’t cool, and to move forward. Wokeness is a journey and
I am certainly on it. I’m excited to keep learning. I have so much to learn. I was with a client the other night at work and he was like, 65 or 70 and he said with this huge beaming smile on his face he was like, “I have so much to learn!”
and I loved that. It really resonated with me because I feel like I also have so much to learn And I want to fee like that when I’m 65 too. thank you for teaching me, thanks for checking me, special thanks to people who do it
nicely, and I hope you have an amazing day I hope you are inspired to tell your own stories, however sloppy they may be.

  1. The problem is hurt feelings are more important than people who've actually been HURT. So ass backwards. Don't let social justice warriors ruin your content or comedy.

  2. its really admirable that you're willing to come back and make a formal apology. i love your content and look forward to more videos :^)
