Every time I hear this kind of news or that some PC older Kampot expat moved out because of my SHV acquaintances moving in, it brings a huge smile on my face.

So some skanky whore who seems to spend most of her Facebook life drinking or drunk is complaining about other skanky whores getting drunk and getting paid for it???


Or am I reading this wrong?

Edit to add: Hope Belinda gets her ass sued and maybe Kim should enlist the help of the KTV owner/police people.

Belinda Laidlaw is a skank.... Guest of this country and sets herself up to be some high than mighty authority. Accusations and no evidence might see her deported. I would not poke her with "that genius" dick.

Here is her on FaceBook... feel free to message her and leave comments on her page.

No, I'd say she's misguided, a trifle self-important, and sure that she has the upper moral ground. Her comments to the lady in Kampot showed a lack of empathy and a strong note of righteousness.
But there's no reason to stalk the woman on FB or whatever. That's creepy and scary.

I think she should read Heidi Hoefinger to get another take on girls who work in bars and may or may not have sex.

Belinda, if you are reading this, Dr Heidi Hoefinger's work is worth checking out. It should give you another perspective on what may, or may not, be considered as sex work in Cambodia, according to the women concerned.

Hi, I am a recent arrival in the Kingdom and I work for an anti-trafficking NGO that helps women forced into prostitution. We help people of all nationalities.

yesterday I was in bar undercover, and I noticed a scantily-clad drunk (or perhaps drugged) woman with a much older white man, the usual suspect in our demographic.

She was acting very passionately, hugging him, and obviously not sober

I am concerned she may have been forced into prostitution, as she fits our demographic profile perfectly

If you know this woman, and think she may have been trafficked, please contact me at holierthanthouangryhonkynutter.org.kh

Thank you...and damn you all, you fat, old white males, you are going to hell!
