Today we got a message saying that by reblogging a long post of criticisms of the porn industry, we’re being SWERFs or some BS.
I’m basically in negative emotional spoons for the day, so I’m just gonna say a few things.
-Criticising the porn industry and exposing its damaging effects is not the same as shaming sex work/-ers
-Especially when that criticism contains actual quotes from actual sex workers about the abuse they actually faced while in the industry.
-I don’t see how this is any different than criticising the abusive, blatantly misogynistic, and inhumane parts of the industries of prostitution (eg all sex trafficking and most street pimping).
I’m basically done with this argument that you can’t be pro-sex work while also acknowledging the problems with the actual industries and the damage that it can do.
