Sex-workers, like those in any other occupation, neednât ever justify their job to anyone else. Iâm not here to justify anything, I donât need to justify anything. Iâm here to do what little I can to clear away stereotypes. Iâm also here with a plea:
Any feminist, and any feminist organisation (including this site) needs to fully support the rights and causes of sex workers, including defense against criticism by other women. The stereotypes you may have and may be vocalising are actively oppressing a large group of women very similar to you.
I am just starting sex work, so I am by no means an expert in the industry, hell this is all new to me. I do, however, know that I am more than a stereotype, just as all of you are, just as all of my sex worker friends are.
We need to do something, here, now, to demystify, de-stigmatize, and unlearn. Then and only then will those of us who have worked in the industry feel safe here.
