    Yes, I have friends who are sex workers. They are some of my favourite friends and some of the best people I know. Everyone's experience is different, of course.

    I am saying that anyone can make any sort of claims on an Internet forum, and the veracity of those claims is up in the air. Doubly so when they are used to back up ideological arguments.

    He asked me if I knew any sex workers and gave an example to back up his own "ideological argument". Well, I do and I am at fault for that now?

    So do I. For some reason they're not tend to freak out over some harmful pms. Especially years later, suddenly. As for gold-digging whores - I somewhat agree that USA men have brought it on themselves - that's part of the Burr's joke actually but that doesn't change whore's malice. Which is relevant in the current case.

    Your daily reminder that Cherry Blossom is a troll and all she posts is bait. And yes, I'm speaking from experience.

    Ask them about their relations with their fathers.

    Eh, even a broken clock is right twice a day.

    Social attitudes towards sex workers are a subjective matter varying from culture to culture and from time to time. Ultimately, there is nothing inherently shameful in using one's body to earn an honest pay.

    You should appreciate trolls like Cherry more. Would it not be boring if everyone just nodded and agreed all the time? There must always be someone to take an outrageously retarded position to make sure you got your head on straight. Cherry is that special retard and you should be thankful for it. Otherwise you or I would have to do it and we could not be the lesser retards on this topic.
    I am so dumb! I have been doing it for free all this time and my labor has been shamelessly exploited. Next time I'm demanding payment.

    What were we talking about again? Not sure how we started going on about sex workers.

    Oh yeah. Chris Avellone.

    Every relationship is transactional. Some earn money, others emotional support or what have you. :M

    Emotional support can't buy you stuff so I have been seriously ripped off. Would you accept emotional support in a factory job? No way!

    Perhaps. But I'm not sure you can treat sex work the same way as any kind of work. You can treat sex as just another commodity and you can have rules about what people should and shouldn't do to get ahead in their profession, but not both. Many of the problems we are discussing have to do with how dating and work tend to clash when thrown together. Would you like to throw sex work into this mess?

    If you are a whore, you don't get to complain about being propositioned. Even during your off hours.

    If my daughter says: "Dad, I want to be a prostitute." I will be sad and feel she is wasting her life, if she says she is going to be a gaming journalist though, now, there I would get seriously worried though, at least sex workers provide a real service for the community.
