The feminists that support anti-sexual liberation agenda,  that sex workers are not entitled to an opinion is prejudice and oddly hypocritical.

 

They promote a traditional religious attitude to sex  that is not progressive and is infact  patriarchal. 

 

Why don't the see the hypocrisy of that position?

Most forced trafficking is for non-sexual work (eg think of all the child slaves in countries like Bangladesh working all day every day to help stock UK discount clothes shops), yet feminists only care if sex is involved. They care so much in fact they also want to "rescue" sexworkers who aren't trafficked.

 

It's always about sex.

trafficking is mostly about agrculture. the gang system is deeply exploitative and uses illegals etc.  you see them in the fields picking sprouts and leeks and they work in packhouses putting veg into plastic trays and covering in clingfilm for the supermarkets.  but dont complain about these people cos it means 5p off your veg in tescos.

I'm seeing more and more articles along the lines of the Guardian piece. There does seem to be some common sense creeping in to the debate and acknowledgement that in the very nature of the subject matter it's inevitable that anti-criminalisation of punter supporters and advocates of legalising brothels would not wish to 'come out'.

 

I'm cautiously hopeful that the tide may me turning against radical change of the laws here in the UK in favour of informal 'guidance' to local 'plod'  to do as many forces already do but with an extra 'nod and a wink' towards brothels.

 

I actually trust most local 'Plods' to judge the situation wisely. The Proceeds of Crime legislation in a world of resource poverty doesn't help. So the guidance to 'Plod' needs to demand that the PoC target is not the prime motivator in a brothel closure.

 

We shall see
