Dear leftists,

A lot of you have sincerely shitty politics around sex work. You need to respect, accept, and listen to sex workers the same way you listen to other workers. SWs need to be accepted in leftist circles, without stigma. Do better.

And we also need to address how intertwined sex worker struggles are with every other struggle because sex workers are multi faceted people who fit into several communities.

Workers rights? ✅
Women’s rights? ✅
Lgtbq rights? ✅
Disability rights? ✅
Criminal justice reform?✅
Struggle against wealth inequality? ✅
Impacts of stigma on marginalized communities? ✅

Discrimination from banking institutions and employers? ✅

Leaving sex workers out of the convo also eliminates millions of convos that need to be had and topics that need to be addressed.
So just fuxking stop. Let sex workers speak. Understand sex workers are valuable community members who are often fighting for the same things most leftists are.

Stop leaving people behind.
Sex workers get fired from straight jobs if their histories are found out.

There are sex worker who have disabilities of mental health issues that make straight jobs impossible.

So Why aren’t sex workers included in convos around disability rights and worker rights?
Sex workers are in prison because if their job. Why aren’t they part of the convo around mass incarceration of non violent offenders?

Sex workers face hella stigma, and yet they’re still excluded from the places that should be the most inviting to them- leftist spaces.
