"At what point does a young woman join The Hive Mind and start thinking she needs to be taken seriously in the workplace and not be seen as just sex objects? Do they have a collective brain on this?"
What I'm saying is that if enough girls are selling themselves online, this will affect all women. In other words, the image of women per se will change. The actions of the few will affect the many.
The girl who just wants to be a paralegal or scientist will be affected in some way because scads of camgirls very gradually altered the image of women from "people we date" to "people who will do any pervy thing for a price."
As I've said before, this was UNTHINKABLE even in the 1990s. If you asked even the most liberated girl to strip for money, you'd probably get slapped -- and ostracized for being a "perv." Now it's extremely commonplace everywhere, from cam girls to movies to pop music stars.
To use a circus analogy: Prostitution and nude modeling were always seen as a sideshow in our culture. That sideshow is becoming the main attraction. What we consider normal is changing. "Prostitution" used to mean abnormal. When it comes to mean "normal," the smart alec phrase "all women prostitutes" will become an inescapable and unfortunate definition for all women in some way.
What's interesting about this dynamic is that it begs the question if such women themselves will undermine feminism and being taken seriously in the workplace rather than as just sex objects.
Back in the 1980's, it was common for career women to tell me that they led double lives: They wanted workplace equality but at home, they wanted "traditionalism" (or men who were breadwinners.) They kept their workplace life and personal life separate. Simps back then white knighted their rationalizations "They aren't virtual prostitutes if they insist that men pay for them."
A few things about this trend that will be interesting:
1) Unlike feminism up to this point, which was to make women ugly and independent from men, now such women would sort of like housewives have to please men. They'd need to actually make deliverables.
2) This isn't affirmative action or welfare. They will be competing in a free market.
3) It will be impossible for them to live this double life. Men EVERYWHERE will know their "secret" life.
