How would regulation that further marginalizes @sexworkerproblems

How would regulation that further marginalizes already marginalized people help prevent violent murders from occurring? Also Tjhisha and Angelia were strippers, which is not illicit employment so the subject of decriminalization doesn’t apply here.

What would have prevented Tjhisha Ball and Angelia Mangum’s murders is if someone hadn’t murdered them. The only person to blame for assault, rape, violence, and murder is the abuser, rapist, or murderer.

We do not advocate for decriminalization “in theory” as you said. Your ask smells a bit like stigmatization and victim blaming. We advocate for decriminalization in actuality because people in all branches of the sex trade deserve to be able to work in peace and safety. We advocate for decriminalization in actuality because full service sex workers deserve to be able to work in peace and safety without worrying about violence from law enforcement, media, and lookie-loos.

We advocate for the memory of Tjhisha Ball and Angelia Mangum because they were victims of violence and murder - something no one deserves, regardless of their job titles.

We would also like to take this opportunity to signal boost the fundraiser for Tjhisha Ball and Angelia Mangum’s families to help with funeral costs. Here is the link - http://www.youcaring.com/memorial-fundraiser/help-angelia-and-tjhisha-s-family/238511

Yes we want our stories stories we produce not @sexworkerproblems

“Yes we want our stories-stories we produce, not stories about us by outsiders-to be widely read, heard, and acknowledged. We want our stories to shift the culture, change minds, create empathy where there previously was indifference. These are lofty goals, to be sure. Even when a broader audience isn’t listening, the act of telling our stories is an act of resistance and it is an act of resilience. Telling sex worker stories is important both in the halls of government and in a room or on a page where only a few people witness our words. When we are denied our human rights, telling stories for each other becomes even more important, because in the act of doing so, we say to each other: I hear you, your concerns are real, your stories ring true.”

PLEASE SHARE

Transgender woman Islan Nettles was savagely beaten on August 17th, 2013 in Harlem and died from her injuries five days later. The case has gained national notice but justice is, yet again, elusive, for another trans* woman of color.

Let’s change that.
