People who say "Prostitution is real work" act like that is some sort of mic drop moment. Child Labor is real work, as is Slave Labor and Prison Labor. Exploitation and the denigration of a human being can indeed be work. Work, however, does not justify itself.
No matter what Prostitution, Stripping, and pornography are not forms of legitimate work. It is work. Work that steals the dignity from said workers and will never be a form of honest work. People need to stop letting the exchange of money dictate what is right and wrong.
Just because society allows these things does not mean they should be allowed. It is not an indictment upon the women who do these things, many feel they need to because of their current lot in life. It is an indictment of the society to allow and celebrate the humiliation-
that is endured for a fist full of cash. So, no, the idea that "sex work (prostitution) is work" does not obfuscate the vileness of what it is. The Exploitation of desperate women (and the few men in it) who live in a society that does not care about them lest they have money.
That also leads us to another issue. We, men, know all these things are wrong. We make fun of men who strip for a living and we make fun of male prostitutes. We have zero respect for them. Not just that but very few men would want their wives/daughters/sisters/mothers to strip.
If one cannot bear to see their loved ones robbed of their dignity for a few dollars, then why would you want a stranger to do that? Let's face it. There is zero justification for this crap and there never will be. To allow women to be disgraced like this we disgrace ourselves.
Because at the end of the day, who is more disgusting? The person profiting off the work (the Pimp) or those ignoring/supporting/or enjoying it?

In Dostoevsky's book, Notes from Underground, the main character tells a story in two parts. The first part captures the unlikability of the main character. The constant taunting and the arrogance born of his intellect. The first part is the hardest part to read but... (1
it is the most important part. He attacks the idealism of the Enlightenment. The certain of their works and the preposterous nature of thinking humans are like machines. He starts with the idea of the perfectibility of man and states only the stupid believe such things.(2
He notes that to attaint such perfectability man would be rendered to nothing but piano keys. Yes, every key can be beautifully crafted to fit their slot but he notes, man is not a piano key. For he has a will, a desire, to be what he believes he should be. (3

Some will think I jest or that I am using internet lingo when I refer to the TRA movement as the Cult of Pleasure. I assure you, I am not. I am dead serious. Everyone concentrates on the material aspect, but what they do not see is the rot it spreads. /1
This movement is a religion, a spiritual movement, that laughs and howls with delight. It is the howling madness that we all sought to ignore. Many believe the myth of the Rational Man, never questioning if the Rational man is not some ravenous beast screaming in a rage. /2
No, no, everyone wishes to believe in the reason of man. To believe that we are rational and reasonable creatures, while they make holy their secular myths. What is more delicious to make fools of the Secularists? They see their proud ideologies inverted and twisted. /3

Right, anyone saying we should go the route of Slaanesh and the Cult of Pleasure, is an absolutely depraved creature. Slaanesh is the Dark Prince of Pleasure. His cults devote themselves to ever greater acts of depravity. /1
See, She who thirsts, cannot abide by the boredom of the same experiences. They must drive themselves for greater acts of pleasure unless the world grows dull, and we are already seeing this in pornography. As men drive for more brutal and degrading fantasies. /2
The societal implications are tremendous. In a world devoted to such depravity, all must be permissible, as pleasure for the sake of pleasure is the only reason to exist. This life is empty and will lead one devoid of being as all must render themselves into creatures of desire.3

As we see with the Superphobia of the SERFs, Twitter, Facebook, and Reddit have all shown themselves to be incredibly hostile to a movement of people who have no representation. The LGBTQ is a failure and we have left adrift with no one voicing our concerns./1
If People feel disenfranchised from the current organizations then we must make new ones. We must be organized to push back against the wave of hate against who we are. We have heard countless stories of lesbians and gays who are telling stories that are similar to the 90s. /2
So many are afraid to be silenced and so many fear that this issue will cost them their livelihood. How long can we bow our heads and live on our knees? Our voices are being taken from us as our spaces become increasingly privatized and yet we continue on all the same. /3

We do not seek to invalidate Trans people's deeply held beliefs in their gender identity. We support their quest for equality, however, just as they seek to live their true selves, we must be true to ourselves. Our gender identity and our sexual identity are not up for debate.
Well, there can be no compulsion in one's sexual orientation. Who they love is their right and no one has the right to tell anyone that their relationships, sexual orientations, and romantic interests are wrong. There are boundaries that everyone must respect. Relationships-
Are inherently exclusionary. One who seeks a partner seeks the intimacy of a relationship with whom they are sexually attracted too, free from the meddling of unwanted advances. Free to devote their love and affection to the person they have chosen to be with based on their-
