Sex workers are human beings…. from cam models to strippers to porn stars. It may not be your cup o’ tea (mmm, tea), but it doesn’t give you the right to disrespect or shame them.
Reblogging this again because people think that just because someone is a sex worker, means that they are not intelligent, can’t have normal lives, and treat them like complete shit.
While I acknowledge that post makes an extremely valid point - and one that I in no way dispute; it’s their body - I would hate for people to get the impression from it that all sex workers are happy with what they do, and do it willingly.
Many sex workers are trafficked, some are coerced or manipulated, others are simply desperate. Many are addicts, a large number are estranged from their families and have no support network.
Please do treat them all with the respect they deserve as human beings, but remember that while it’s a choice for some of them, it’s isn’t that clear cut for all of them.
