I tried to open an OnlyFans. The site is notorious for sex workers but many creatives ha e actually been making a decent living off of it. Okay, I’m lying, people have been making a killing off of the website. Bella Thorne managed to make more than a million as soon as she opened an account….I’m not jealous…my skin color just naturally becomes green from…other people making loads of money without putting in a lot of effort…
So I tried to make an OnlyFans account. And I succeeded. But then there’s a little thing that I didn’t expect… actually it’s something that I have actually come to expect considering the part of the world that I come from. And it is that I can’t make money off of OnlyFans simply because my country is not on the list of countries allowed to make money on OnlyFans. But ironically like alot of other sites I can send money and pay other members on OnlyFans, but I’m not actually allowed to make money.
I know technically speaking these websites often say that due to laws blah blah blah, but if that’s the case then why do these sites allow us to pay money. Because I know for sure that my country does everything it can in order to avoid money leaving the country and allowing foreign currency in the country. I just have this sense that they don’t really want to be hassled with the technicalities of allowing payment to go through so they take the easy way out.
So that’s why OnlyFans sucks. Inclusivity goes much farther than just adding black people to a sitcom. We need to start having the conversation that discrimination in this world goes much deeper than we could have imagined and in order to get the system into some form of fairness I’m going to be one of the people that speak out against some of these forms of discrimination that are virtually ignored.
