I have some friends who are sex workers and am particularly close to one of them. She loves what she does and feels very empowered by it. She’s also a great human being who actively works to rescue, foster and help animals. She has made a real effort to get to know other sex workers in our area and they routinely have brunches, and other types of get-togethers, creating community in an industry that has so much enforced secrecy and solo-ness. This woman is also one of the most savvy business people I’ve ever met. I adore her and the world would be a much better place if more people were like her!

Also, there should be no class of people who are considered disposable! Really great piece!
