By viewing sex workers as both victims and perpetrators, End Demand promoters get to pick and choose whatever is most convenient for their arguments and ignore the demands of a community against which violence is being perpetrated. This ignores and dehumanizes those impacted in the sex trade, turning very real and complex experiences and needs into convenient tropes for third parties. So if [NYC Police Commissioner] Ray Kelly, members of law enforcement, and promoters of End Demand actually asked someone who and what is contributing to the marginalization, violence, stigma, shame, and discrimination which make the sex trade dangerous, the answer should be easy to say, but difficult to hear.

I like this, but it’s not as snazzy as it could be in order to be memorable. Too bad.
