I have many doubts that our government cares about our wellbeing or what we think. I have doubts that other citizens care about each other.
But I want to show my anti-support of FOSTA, a bill that will be voted on by the house very soon. Another attack on the wellbeing of a marginalized group.
A large number of youth who get pushed into prostitution are transgender, come from poor families or are otherwise disadvantaged. This is another heartless Republican bill masked with Christian morals that only aims to hurt people.
I am not really a 'sexworker' although my work partly depends on sex appeal and arousal, and I have & still do pro-dom work occasionally. I won't use that title when there are those who are truly in jeopardy & risk of arrest because of their work. I believe in total legalization of the business. Sex isn't wrong. Selling isn't wrong. Selling sex isn't wrong. If you can marry for a dowry you should be allowed to shave off the sugarcoating and paperwork & fuck for one.
So it is even more important that I stand up against it and refuse to treat sexworkers and trafficking victims as nonhuman trash. This bill does not help them. It only makes their conditions more dangerous. Pimps will just send them out on the street and force them to take any client to make ends meet since they cannot advertise online. Police will not 'save them' there.
We have a long way to go for sexworkers rights, but please, especially if you are not a sexworker, make a call and take some time right now to learn aout this bill.
