Sex Worker Rights

download-1

Recently I wrote a blog entitled “I am not a hooker” after this military douche expected me to show him around a sex club just because I wrote about it on my blog.

(And I wrote about it years ago, mind you.)

A friend of mine is a sex worker, and took offense at the term “hooker” being used in a negative context. I am always one to admit when I am wrong, so I promised to write a post to apologize for my mistake.

Yes, I was upset that yet another white American man felt entitled to my attention. I really find it completely unacceptable the way those type of men so often act like you owe them something because they think they’re so fucking special, (when actually you don’t owe them shit and no one does and they should all fuck off.)

However, my disgust at the rudeness of the man in question (and his subsequent stalking of me which I had to put a stop to) are no excuse for my acting as though sex work is not a valid career choice. Women at places like the Bunny Ranch in Nevada are providing a wanted service, and they are making more money than I ever will by doing it.

Sex work should be legal and destigmatized, and I support the fight that all sex workers are in to be legalized as career professionals.

So I apologize to my friend, and to all the sex workers I may have offended. It’s true that I personally have never engaged in sex work, but I don’t disapprove of it. I didn’t appreciate the military douche acting entitled, and I did not mean to disparage sex workers in the process of teaching him a lesson in propriety.

  1. We all have moments of “oops” in our haste and anger, sometimes to the detriment of those we love. I have been known to spit venom in every direction myself. I’m sure your friend will forgive you of your lapse in judgement in her eyes. I honestly didn’t even catch it myself until you pointed it out. But I can understand how she feels about having her toes stepped on so to speak. Have a great day and just do what you can to make amends and take precautions not to do it again! Love your blog by the way! I wish we were ALL so candid and honest in our lives!
