Today’s Gender of the day is: Nine colorful birds harassing a child
  • Radical feminists: the sex industry is dangerous to women!
  • Sex workers: I experience these dangers and also depend on my job to support myself, so will you support me in making my working conditions safer?
  • Radical feminists: the sex industry results in human trafficking!
  • Sex workers: actually, sex trafficking statistics are confused with trafficking statistics for domestic labor and often include voluntary sex workers such as migrant workers.
  • Radical feminists: the sex industry causes rape!
  • Sex workers: we're at risk of violence due to stigma surrounding our work that results in an inability to report that basically allows rapists to target us without giving us any recourse.
  • Radical feminists: we need to shut down the sex industry to protect these women!
  • Sex workers: forcing us out of our jobs is just going to force us into poverty though, why don't you listen to us and help us make our work safer?
  • Radical feminists: false consciousness! handmaidens of the patriarchy!
  • Sex workers: I thought you wanted to help us?
  • Radical feminists: fuck you for selling out women! You deserve what you get! Throwing women under the bus!
  • Sex workers: . . .
  • Radical feminists: I only care about trafficked women!
  • Sex trafficking survivors: criminalization actually makes things worse for us by contributing to stigma, statist violence and limiting our ability to access support through peer-based organizations and other workers
  • Radical feminists: abolish the sex industry!
  • Sex workers and trafficking survivors: . . .

'Using a No. 2 pencil, fill in the correct answers with dark marks.'
I tell my students, ‘When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not just a grab-bag candy game.’ Toni Morrison (via ethiopienne)
