Is there anyone here who thinks that no sex worker could possibly not be a victim? [View all]

I can't speak for others, but it's my view that some surely can do such work of their own free will and not because of unfortunate circumstances.

They're just not my concern as they're the privileged few who actually do choose it for themselves, they have a healthy sense of self esteem, they're most likely white and not from an underprivileged background or a background of abuse, and are not doing it to feed an addiction, etc.

They're not being exploited, is what I mean. Unlike the majority in the industry.


So I'm just curious... cause I suspect that when people argue against such ideas (that anti-porn, anti-prostitution feminists think all sex workers are victims), that what they're doing is constructing simplistic, stupid strawman arguments, so that they don't have to do any thinking.

Yes, I think that all sex workers are exploited victims.
