There are a few completely unfounded claims that consistently arise around how #decriminalization would impact the size of the industry being repeated by @Polaris_Project @ncose & others operating in bad faith, and demonstrating an embarrassing disinterest in data. (1/ )
There are claims that there would be an explosion of the size of the industry. But lets talk abt studies: The country which has decriminalized (New Zealand) & the most recent report on a country which instituted increased criminalization through the #NordicModel (NIreland) (2/ )
NZ had studies before/after & notes the challenges w methodology. Only 1 area replicated their study exactly & after 8 yrs of decrim found an increase of 11 ppl. 17 more indoors, 6 less on the street. They also noted more visibility - which is good. (3/ ) prostitutescollective.net/wp-content/upl…

I saw the movie #Hustlers for a third time.

My thoughts center the character Destiny, #fostercare #kinship and #sexwork

This is a thread
In the movie #Hustlers we see that Destiny was raised by her grandmother who was on a fixed income and not in the best health.

#fostercare #kinship #sexwork
Destiny became an adult and worked as a #stripper a legal form of #sexwork

I really identified with her character as our stories and experiences of aging out mirrored eachothers.

#fostercare #kinship #sexwork #socialwork
