Norma Jean Almodovar: The AGs vs. Backpage

Veteran sex worker rights activist Norma Jean Almodovar has written a passionate essay on the hypocrisy of the stance taken by 45 state attorneys general in demanding that Backpage discontinue all adult advertising, and I’m pleased to announce that she’s done me the honor of allowing me to publish it as a two-part guest blog on The Honest Courtesan:

Part One (September 16th, 2011)

Part Two (September 17th, 2011)

Both columns contain numerous links supporting Norma Jean’s position that if the “authorities” really want to protect “children” from sexual exploitation, that aim would be best served by forgetting about Backpage and cleaning up their own “disorderly house”.

  1. I wondered when they’d go after BP. Hopefully, they’ve a lot more savvy and a lot more balls to stand up to these AGs.

  2. They’ve promised us not mere resistance, but a full-fledged sex worker rights campaign which they’ve already started by attacking Ashton Kutcher’s nonsense.
