Yes, it's a real thing, and it was 10 days ago and its the 5th it is celebrated (is that the right word?) in Toronto. The Sexworkers rights activist behind it are accusing the Police for not caring about dead prostitutes and are blaming GTA-yes, the videogame- for encouraging the subculture of robbing and calling them. Ok, their right, and while I am against the egotistical notion of naming a day after one's cause, I don't think Prostitutes should be hurt or killed, so bully for them. I just have one question from this article, and it concerns one quote:
According to Kuzyk, a semi-retired sex worker who has been championing
the rights of prostitutes for years, there is a stigma of sex workers
in society that makes it difficult, if not impossible, to change the
way violence against sex workers is handled.
Ok, how can you be a semi-retired sex worker exactly? What the hell does that mean? You are retired 5 days a week or something, but you are open for business on the weekend? Does anybody know?
