Reply to comment by lautreamont in The Children of Pornhub by bloodrose

I imagine these protests are being ignored by progressive groups in show of solidarity with sex workers. I think we need to figure out how to be anti-pornhub but pro-sex worker. It should be able to be the same as being anti-mega-corp but pro-worker.

Article and subject is about underage girls who got lured into posting sex cams of themselve, and PornHub used it against their fully-aware consent. I wouldn't call them "sex workers", who consent to sell their sex services.... This is blatant underage abuse by PornHub.

Right but sex trafficking narratives are used almost exclusively by anti-porn activists (which the author of this article is). Like the Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act that passed a year or two ago that totally fucked sex workers & made their work way more dangerous, which was the whole intent.

I agree with you completely. I just find that in leftist circles when you bring up these problems, there becomes a lot of hand-wringing about moralizing and sex-work, and no one will say "hey, this is fucked up - we should care" because they worry about being attacked for being "anti-sex-worker."
