my intersectional revolution, or why black women aren’t seen in the sex workers rights movement 

This.
People have asked me why there are so few women of color in leadership in the “sex workers rights” movement. It’s because the “movement isn’t just about rights for sex workers. It’s intersectionality requires activism on all fronts: against domestic violence and homelessness, for a living wage, for healthcare for all, ending the war on drugs, housing first, the prison industrial complex, ….
Our issues are all connected. But when some leaders and their followers decide that they want to be respectable, to limit access to those who “deserve” care, they use a model of citizenship rights not human rights. And that is precisely why and where people of color get locked out mite why and where structural racism are perpetuated.
So this.

Don’t Study Sex Workers
