Faux hos

29Dec09

By now, most people even slightly in touch with sex worker issues have seen this article, which has basically ignited a shitstorm.

I wish I had the emotional and mental capacity right now to articulate how I feel. About Alexa, about faux hos, about blogging. But I don’t. I find the whole thing to be moving faster than my tiny brain can wrap itself around and getting fairly ugly.

There is something very palpably awful about a fake blog detailing a stereotyped image of sex work. On the other hand, I’ve seen and experienced sex workers within the community being called out or ignored because their experiences don’t fit the bill of what activists are trying to “sell” as the image of sex work.

I’m going to stop pretending like I have anything intelligent and thought-through to say about this topic. Other than: it exhausts me.
