The sex work is a red herring, but Cassie Sainsbury really is Schapelle Corby 2.0

When news about Cassie Sainsbury’s arrest in Colombia for drug trafficking first attracted media attention, social media laughingly tagged her “Corby 2.0”. Though many parallels can be drawn, it was the attention-seeking nature of her and her family’s pleas for assistance that most starkly resembled Schapelle and her family back in 2004. But last night, “Corby 2.0” went from being a joke to reality when Channel 9’s 60 Minutes  and Channel 7’s Sunday Night went head to head with “exposes” on the mysterious, inconsistent and questionable stories around how Cassie ended up with 5.8kgs of cocaine in her luggage at El Dorado Airport in Bogota.

Both stories had interesting nuggets of information. On Sunday Night, her father revealed that she had mentioned a trip to Bogota back in January, which he advised against. There is no communication between members of her family: her fiance has not communicated with her mother and sister, and nobody has contacted her father. Colombian officials and experts on their drug trade provided insight into her situation and the consequences she may now be facing. However, what is consuming the most media attention and discussion today is the revelation that Cassie worked as a sex worker prior to her excursion around the globe to Colombia.

Charlie Sheen, it was wrong to take a shot at sex workers

In the rush to support Charlie Sheen for revealing his HIV status and address the stigma surrounding HIV, it has been largely overlooked that Charlie has heaped stigma on another group of people: sex workers.

In his Today interview, Charlie spoke of hiring “the companionship of unsavoury and insipid types” and revealed that a sex worker had attempted to blackmail him with photographs of his HIV medication. Of course there are unsavoury people in this world and the person who tried to extort Charlie is a scumbag. But that has nothing to do with them being sex workers, let alone is it representative of sex workers. By referring to “hiring” unsavoury characters (as opposed to “spending time with”) and the extortioner’s profession Charlie is capitalising on the pre-existing stigma towards sex workers.
