So often the fact people talk about us, over us, and down to us, rather than listening, we were not saying we were all happy with sex work, or loved our lives, that abuse does not happen. But we do not need rescuing from our choices, we need respect, decent legal protection and an end to stigma and criminlization.
Today (11/1/14) is World human trafficking day, and people will be speaking for us, organisations like the European Womens Lobby want a "Europe free from prostitution" and use the hysteria around trafficking to attack consensual adults who chose to have sex in a way they disapprove of.
Today should be about the millions of people who are trafficked each year, the children sold into debt bondage, the agricultural labourers who are raped and exploited, the fisherman trapped into working. The people who are trafficked into sexual slavery, and exploited.However because sex sells it will focus on sex work. Today we are saying we are #notyourrescueproject, and begging you please go and help those across the world who are in slavery, who do need help, whose cause might not be sexy, but is vital to support.
me, just dont call me babe
