Sex workers aren't gonna save the world from murderous misogynists. Sex workers are more likely to be the *victims* of murderous misogynists.
Every time a man does something horrible, someone pops up with the idiotic idea that if only paying for sex weren't a crime, these men wouldn't have murdered/sex abused/whatever.
There are a couple of problems with this: first off, people aren't driven to horrific acts because of a lack of sex. That's not how any of this works.
Secondly, if that *were* the case, and someone's need for sex were that dire, I doubt the fact that purchasing sex is currently criminalized would actually stop them from purchasing sex. They were fine with purchasing guns illegally and murdering people!
But also: THESE MEN, EVEN THE ONES WHO ATTRIBUTE THEIR VIOLENCE TO LACK OF SEX, DO NOT WANT TO HIRE SEX WORKERS.

Go read an incel board, they are very clear about this. If anything, they resent sex workers for profiting off sexuality rather than seeing them as service providers.
Which brings me back to my original point: The type of men who claim that a lack of sex has driven them to murder are exactly the type of men who will put the safety of sex workers in jeopardy. Because they don't want sex. They want control. And they use violence to get it.
