I'm posting here because I am really ANGRY at the way ALL of you have presented this issue. You have NOT dealt with the REALITY at all. You are actually doing a really big fucking diss-service to all sex-workers in the third and first world by painting such a simplistic and moralistic picture of the issue. You also repeatedly IGNORE any arguments put forward by actual sex-workers by painting the same stupid characature of our arguments. You continually IGNORE actual organising attempts by sex-workers and you IGNORE all the issues that our organisations (including those in the first world) raise.

WHERE ARE YOUR LINKS TO SEX-WORKERS ORGANISATIONS?

WHY DO YOU NOT SUPPORT OUR REAL, ACTUAL, LIVING STRUGLES?

That article from RW you is NOT reality, it's just simplistic propaganda that doesn't adress ANY real issues. You want reality then why don't you link to sex-workers groups or to feminists like Global Strike of Women who don't support sex-work but actually support sex-workers organising and take the issues we raise SERIOUSLY.

It's just pure, stunning hypocrisy to continue to imply that we are justifying the opression of 3rd world women or something - when you won't even lower yourself to so much as mention, let alone support our actual issues, organisation, struggles in the 3rd or 1st world.

the prvelance of porn is a new thing. people have always had sexy pictures and raunch -- but whole buildings are covered in the bodies of adolescent girls. Hardcore pornography is largely about more or less explicit degredation, something even long-time users and producers have complained about. That's where the money is. What I'm interested in is why so few "pro-sex" (read pro-porn, pro-prostitution, pro-pimp, pro-anything but actual sex) organizations ever feature the voices of women compeled into the industry and unhappy.

Everything -- I mean literally everything -- I've read comes off like PR script written for the industry.
