Sex workers CAN be raped. I don’t understand why that’s a difficult concept.
Consent is required. Every single time. And in every moment. The excuse of “oh they live that lifestyle/it’s expected/slurs” is not acceptable. If someone says no, you stop. Period. Otherwise it’s RAPE.
I hope she can heal from this.
This is so imperative because people have this gross mentality that sex workers ask for it. People constantly dehumanize and trivialize the narratives of sex workers because of their so called “promiscuity”. People invalidate their experiences and perceive them as otherwise. Sex workers can be the victims of sexual assault. Sexual assault is not an intentional factor to their profession. They should be respected and heard.
