Sex Worker Rights Advocate Blog Launches

More blogs are launching on the subject of sex worker rights! Snip from Sex Worker Rights Advocate:

… 20/20 could have addressed how the criminalization of prostitution compounded the problems Brandi Britton was experiencing and played a major role in “pushing her over the edge” with tragic results. Britton was an escort and a professor who worked for Palfrey…

Like Brandi Britton, many sex workers have been persecuted under these prohibitionist policies toward prostitution and I can only imagine how many more sex workers also committed suicide, as Britton allegedly did, after being persecuted and chastised.

Other sex workers & advocates & allies with blogs, send us your links or leave a comment below. Our blogroll is on its way.

  1. You can launch as many blogs as you like. It’s easy! But that doesn make your position correct.

    If any of these blogs encourage even one woman to go into prostitution as is it today, then you have done a disservice to all women.

    At the very least, you should encourage new women not to become a prostitute until you accomplish some of your goals. Otherwise you are deliberately recruiting women into a profession that you yourself point out is illegal, stigmatized and dangerous.

  2. Nobody here is encouraging anybody to enter into sex work.

    We are speaking about our own experiences. A privilege that others enjoy, while sex workers are forced to be silent on matters that impact our lives and our families. We are every bit as entitled as any other occupation to tell the world our stories (notice the plural) sincerely and honestly.

    Whether you believe our positions are correct is of little importance. That we have a right to share our positions (there’s that plural again) and have our positions heard in any arena where our profession is discussed is the most basic human right that should be afforded to all sex workers.

  3. “Nobody here is encouraging anybody to enter into sex work.”

    Good to hear.
