Sex Work vs. Trafficking: Understanding the Difference | AlterNet
An interesting article that popped up in my email today and one that I think EVERYONE needs to read. By equating sex work and workers with those who have been forced or tricked into coming here for the purposes of prostitution and/or other labor, we are undervaluing the experiences of those being exploited as well as patronizing those who have chosen sex work as a means of making a living.
Yes, Virginia, some people in sex work DO choose to be there. They are not all sad, lost little girls who need to be shown the error of their ways by their great, white, straight, Christian saviors.
