I recommend you read up more on the topic. Nobody's forcing you to be a sex worker, but you move from making personal judgements about your own life to talking about 'the body' as a general things, and that's pretty swerfy! I don't expect everyone to know everything there is to know about these topics, but it's important especially in this forum that people do the minimum work to not say normative things about what bodies are or aren't.

i am opposed to all work, though, and my politics is interested in the radical power of humane intimacy/ sexuality..i don't see how sexuality is categorically separate from food, family, art , society.. only by the colonial conditions -i think- are specialized roles made scarce ;whereas one is privileged to spend a hard-earned life breaking their back in the fields - picking beans for walmart- another is "disabled" by "attention deficit" and so instead profits by marketing their hugs and conversations. solidarity in struggle

I'm having trouble following some of what you're saying. What concerns me is that I don't recall you coming out to make comments against work in the context of other work. It's fine to be anti-work, I am anti-work, but when anti-work gets mobilised selectively against sex work then there's a problem. Perhaps I'm not as familiar with your general posting tendencies as I should be.

i've always hated work! that's why i always sabotage and tell the bosses to get fucked! and then i quit. always. i'm sorry to have not more clearly communicated my philosophical positioning , it's just that personal intimacy/ sexuality, art and medicine, teaching and childcare or scientific research feel to me like especially important to specific hormonal and psychic tendencies as compared with carpentry, farming, clothing, food-gathering/ preparation, etc, which are -i feel- similarly sacred relationships which -if neglected- are constantly threatened/corrupted by the perceived force of Economy
