worth in the s…hal, I can see how we also can and should take blame for that being a last or only resort for most. Instead most of us are trained to or have learned to use their circumstances as a crutch (in terms of well that ain’t me or my problem — no that is our problem all the same) or for a means to exploit others — after feeling exploited or undervalued for our worth in the same damn system, hence the escapism part.
❤ all of this. All. Of. This. This is the reality for many families. Family dysfunction causes hopelessness which leads to desperation. Anything with life is going to do the best it can to survive until it’s taken out of here. People do the best they can to survive. Sex work is the oldest profession on earth.
If there wasn’t a demand, the sex workers wouldn’t exist. It’s not the best profession for all, but for many women and men, it’s an opportunity to make a lot of money for very little work, with no education requirements. You can be poor, have blemished credit, and even have a criminal record.
All those things that block many of sex workers from attaining “honorable” work/careers. Life isn’t black or white. All we can do is reflect, learn, break the cycle, and move on. I thank you for sharing your personal feelings and thoughts on sex work. Most people don’t have the emotional intelligence to separate the act and the person or to consider how people get where they are.
Nothing happens by accident. We all must share the blame when one person fails in our society.
