Open Letter from Sex Trade Survivors

Since when do survivors have to shit all over the human rights of sex workers. let me ask you this, did criminalization stop you from being exploited and abused. “we know the sex trade to be an arena where women are regarded as non-human commodities”

Really well I have been a sex worker for over 30 years and I have only felt like a human commodity when people like you and the heavily funded anti prostitution lobby speaks about me and my associates. My clients treat me better than losers I use to date for free, and the fact is if sex is so horrible and disgusting why are women GIVING IT AWAY.

80% of trafficking happens outside the sex industry and little is done to help stop these people from being exploited. So while the rescue pimps profit off our criminalization they also leave our youth in the streets.

Supporting the rights of sex workers has NOTHING to do with sex traffikcing or so called survivors who now feel the need to pressure all sex workers into exiting. WAKE THE FUCK UP, the values of womensmarch was that we support the choices of all women and that there are no throw away people.

This notion that most sex workers are poor women of color is utter bullshit, go online and look at some escort ads, the majority of them are white cis women, however trans women of color are arrested and harassed at a much higher rate. There are millions of USA sex workers who all make several hundred dollars a hour, we have found a solution to economic inequality. The action research we conducted on 62 Rhode Island sex workers showed that 14.52% of these sex workers had been to grad school.

Exploitation is happening all over the US, because people are expected to work for a wage that wont even cover the cost of their housing. Now that must really be degrading.

Sadly the so called survivors who claim they are victims, feel the need to try to oppress and stigmatize sex workers which directly promotes stigma and violence against the most marginalzied group of women in the US.

The fact that you want to exclude sex workers shows that you are FAKE FEMINISTS and you dot support the choices of all women.

Since when did persecuting sex workers help stop human trafficking.

Educate yourself before you feel the need to shit all over sex workers.
