… views sex work as the exploitation of womxn. In fact, they were kind of founded on that principle. I know that I, for one, believe that sex work is work — therefor I am not a radical feminist (in fact, I believe that if you do not uplift sex workers you are not, in fact, a feminist at all).
I agree with this aspect. I learned this recently when reading The End of Policing. In this book, the author discussed how making sex work illegal marginalizes sex workers.
Although growing up I was generally protective over sex workers, I now understand that all women are not forced into this type of work and assuming that is not feminist.
I appreciate your ephasis on intersectional and transnational feminism. This is the type of feminism that I am more in tune with. Acting globally, this type of feminism does not turn it's back on BIPOC women or LGBTQ + people. Thanks for writing this article.
