sex work would not exist in societies where everyone has access to having their material needs met. If it did exist, it would not be sex work in the capitalist sense of "work" because it would not be required to to have shelter and a full belly. Every person has different standard for the situations in which they would like to consent to sex, and those variations between people would still exist. Some people only want to have sex in a closed relationship, other people like pity sex or might have no qualms exchanging sex for a fancy object.

i don't need you to whoresplain to me. I am intimately aware of the types of people who buy sex.

john shaming is not whore shaming lol, all whores john-shame, just not usually to their face.

I am genuinely curious on how an ~anarchist~ in particular could deal with the cognitive dissonance of it... or what part of it is appealing to them? Different people have different types of motivating factors for buying sex and I'm sure some anarchists in some situations can try to justify it to themselves and so I am curious what the justification is

No ethical consumerism under capitalism :/

a judge can't force you to be on a specific anti-psychotic they can currently only force you to comply with doctors orders and you have the right to switch drs and medication if you life, ofc not if incarcerated tho

maybe start journaling or something to continue this exploration... i think it's important to figure out why you are doing this... how does it makes you feel? what are your thoughts? what parts of you are getting satisfaction and why? what parts of yourself are you hurting and why?

its a social construct. what is mental illness is dependent on what a society considers mental illness. if society considers, a man being effeminate/gender nonconforming/LGBTQ an illness, they put him in conversion therapy. if that is not considered an illness, then it's totally fine for him to be effeminate or LGBTQ.

if a society doesn't value solitude and considers too much of it atypical, then if their language for constructing reality dictates, they will categorize it into a mentally ill schema.

I feel like im still being very abstract but this is my final edit.

someone tried to teach me anarchy (i asked a lot of questions) and i didn't get to a point of self-learning until i was in a super fucked up legal situation. its not possible to understand it all at once, it's definitely a learning experience, about developing a critical lens with which to analyze society and power structures and morals

as a former fssw, I think that if people need to label their experience serial rape or make such comparisons, then that is their experience and its valid af

edit- I want to add that I'm not a swerf but feel disgusted by the glamorization/normalization of sw almost much as i do by sesta/fosta

hey thanks for reading, i think im gonna wait until im all good and talk to them abt it and maybe talk to the therapist about it too, if they want to rly get over it and be a good person.

I dont think cutting vulnerable ppl out will help them. That is not my first option here. I think the "hey im your friend and i want to keep being your friend but this problem is _______________" would be good. ty
