“I Have A Dream… If MLK could see us now” by Jes Richardson

Excerpt from Jes Richardson‘s brilliant post, which can be read in full here.

“What would Martin Luther King Jr. think of the abolition movement today? What would he think of the movement that uses his name? If he was alive today, I believe he would call out the bitterness and hate. He would call out the injustice of the people. He would speak against the movement that silences the voices from within the sex industry.

I fell into this trap of bitterness toward the very people that helped me. The trap that says sex work equals slavery. The trap that says all buyers are rapists. For years, I spoke of my pain in trafficking, ignoring my own experiences in sex work. I lacked options; I didn’t have any other way to support myself. It wasn’t an organization that helped me find freedom. It wasn’t a church. It wasn’t a rescuer. It was a sex worker.”
