“The basis of most arguments against trans people is that we are not who we say we are, that we are always and only the gender that we were assigned at birth. And so much of that is about having a sense of certainty around gender, that when you were born with a certain set of genitalia, then that must dictate your entire life, and the reality is that that’s not true. A lot of people are not comfortable with that, because then that means they have to begin to question who they are.”- Laverne Cox
People who are currently doing sex work know much much more about the ways the industry is fucked up and abusive than people who are not doing sex work. AND! I know this is a radical thought to many radical feminists: they also have better ideas on what they need to protect themselves and ensure their safety and happiness than people who are not doing sex work.
The Nordic model has never actually been implemented in a way that decriminalises sex workers and it is all about ramping up arrests.
Feminists should not be our enemies. Feminists should not be voting for policies that support the status quo, they should not be vocally agitating for policies that result in the continued criminalisation and brutalization of marginalised populations.
And they shouldn’t be holding their vote over our heads like a punishment if one of us protests the one sided consumption of our lives or blogs

Mallory Ortberg has a voice like an old movie actress. (“Male Novelist Jokes” at the Last Bookstore in LA)
I don’t think it’s unreasonable to say that Mallory Ortberg is one of the funniest writers alive, and a wonderful entertainer.
