Actually, I take even more of an issue with Chomsky's linguistics than his politics. His whole thing with generative grammar is blatantly colonial and structured in such a way that renders linguists (university elites) authorities and gate-keepers over 'correct' language use, wrestling linguistic control from [so called 'native'] speakers

I like the part about work being done to portray sexwork better, but also I think the choice of the title as " “comfort consultant” is a bad decision, due to the euphemistic use of "comfort" in "comfort women" (makes it jarring to be placed before "consultant" which to me feels like a mostly late-capitalist type of profession)
