I am a "survivor" who had traumatic experiences during my time as a survival sex worker who was also trafficked on more than one occasion by multiple pimps (aka "pimples"). Even so, it is crystal clear that the "Nordic Model" increase of criminalization (and the corresponding unwillingness to allow for the possibility that there might be a proportion of sex workers who are NOT trafficked, along with shutting out THEIR voices in legislation over their bodies and human rights from the debates on this topic) - well I can just walk a few blocks to my old track, talk to any of the women who ARE trafficked, and I can give you MANY clear examples of how the "End Demand" legislation has made their lives A LOT worse, a lot more DANGEROUS, a lot more HARMFUL to what little wellbeing they have left. Trafficking is a form of domestic violence, as trafficking is carried out among the adult women I have seen, which is the majority of sex work that takes place where it is visible. FORCING domestic violence victims to get "help" (as the diversion programs for prostitutes in my state is called) has NEVER helped any domestic violence victim! If legislators REALLY want to help adult trafficking victims and, at the same time, not INCREASE victimization and decimate the basic human rights of non-trafficked CONSENSUAL sex workers, they have to INCLUDE voices of ALL SEX WORKERS, not just cherry-picked survivor stories, but also survivor stories like mine (yes I was a sex trafficking victim, but I still support decriminalization and legalization of consensual sex work), and the stories of the larger percentage of sex workers, who are NOT TRAFFICKED.

This is thought that crossed my mind the other night while I was crossing the street with pace, tripping over my black stiletto shoes as one of them almost flew right off my foot, thus forcing me to over-compensate with a mid crosswalk wide legged lunge in a desperate attempt to balance myself, while trying not to mess my manicure. 902 more words

Dearest Netflix Enthusiast,

It has come to my attention that you are in fact severely addicted to television. This may seem like a trivial action to become fixated on but that type of attitude is exactly what got you into this mess. 230 more words

Get under the covers with Greg "The Hammer" Valentine

See, because when her weight is up, she looks like Greg “The Hammer” Valentine, and not at all like what she would want you to believe she looks like, which is 1996 Sunny. Such is life. – Dusty
