I had a great night watching the season premiere of Bar Rescue so you could always do that next time!
@Jaya It does apply to sex workers! If sex is your job you may not have the same enthusiasm as if sex is something you do with someone you're in love with (or however you do it), but that doesn't mean lack of enthusiastic consent. Sex workers should absolutely be protected against abuse, assault and discrimination (you know, the way we have workplace discrimination and abuse laws). Agreeing to exchange services for money ideally means consent, and sex workers should have the right to turn down any prospective client, and have that decision be protected.
I think this ties into the fact that sex is obviously something humans do for leisure and for work, which can't be said of many other professions. There have to be different set ups if you do it for work, but that doesn't mean the same protections shouldn't exist.
This piece is so great. I'm totally guilty of not quite getting sex work in the past, but I've realized the "but you wouldn't be doing this if you didn't have to" mentality is so destructive. I wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't have to! Lots of people have jobs where they're capable but not completely enthusiastic, and that's just the nature of work.
On Meet the Ostracized, Pad-Wearing, Goat's-Blood-Collecting Reproductive Health Hero of Southern India
This article made me so happy. I can't imagine dropping out of school because I got my period, but even in my few travels to India I remember how hard it was to find pads/tampons, and I was staying in nicer hotels.
Also I would like a detailed diagram of this football goat blood uterus please.
@LindsayA Guys I'm wearing a white and blue stripped shirt, army green pants and a grey hoodie. I think I'm TOO fashionable???
Omg why does it have to have a name??? Why can't it just be "the old shirt I found at the back of my closet"?
Yess!! This is perfect, and you do such a good job of helping people without making them feel like idiots. I am eagerly awaiting your book's arrival at my local bookstore (I preordered).
I feel like you should get more points for hitting a goalpost. The odds seem harder!
We need a follow up about this new lady. Was she sufficiently impressed??
