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.

“I saw a picture of Super Bowl $$$, gonna become a stripper and ride off into the sunset”

Nerp.

Here’s 10 common misconceptions about the industry; & what it often looks like instead:
1. It’s easy $$$: you’ve seen money pics, but you likely haven’t seen the nights we pay to work and leave in the negative, worked through weeks of more dancers than customers in the club, or struggled w accidents, illness, or injury without health insurance or other safety nets.
2. It’s easy work: it’s sales, marketing, entertainment, and psychology all in one &- all have steep learning curves. Don’t forget pole, makeup, 8 hrs in heels. Throw in 100s of customers who disrespect/cross boundaries, add nagivating club politics/hiring practices. It’s WORK.
