On "As if sex work is only work if it’s 'good' work, if we love to do it"

Articles like this always bring this quote to mind:

"If ‘sex work’ is really a free choice and something that is ‘liberating’ , why aren’t men chomping at the bit to do it and dominate that ‘career option’ and crowd women out of it, like they do with other good-paying jobs?… NO woman fights to become a prostitute against all odds. She is prostituted when the odds beat her."

@holly hobby I've had many of these symptoms for... 7 years now? I've basically just resigned to being A Dizzy Person because I don't have $40 to spend on copays for all these doctor visits anymore.

On We Didn't Use to Say It Like This

"didn't use to" and "never used to" have slightly different meanings for me. "never used to + verb" is more definite in my mind, where as "didn't use to + verb" allows for the possibility of verb having happened at least once, but it wasn't a habit.

On The Best Time I Learned My Last Name Means Blow Job

I went to high school with a girl named Joanna Handee. And her parents didn't have the decency to give her the pronunciation that sounds like "Joe-Anna."

On "In many states, including Louisiana, police are permitted to use carrying condoms as evidence of prostitution"

These laws also have devastating effects on women of color, particularly trans women of color, who are not sex workers but who carry condoms like responsible sexually active human beings sometimes do. Bad news all around. :(
