Friday the Thirteenth

Being the Lance-Corporal Jones of the interwebs, and always a step behind the rest, I have missed Friday the Thirteenth by a bit.
And we need all of the decent human beings who don’t fall into any of those categories, but are simply disgusted by the idea of armed thugs arresting, humiliating and ruining people for the “crime” of consensual sex...It’s time we let the prohibitionists know that if they want to pick on sex workers, we have a whole lot of brothers and sisters they’re going to have to face as well.
This is from Maggie McNeill, the Honest Courtesan, and I couldn't agree more.

The UK, though light on the armed thugs, is not without those prohibitionists who look to find ever more ingenious ways of forcing all prostitution outside the law, while having no suggestions as to how to deal with that miserable part of the trade driven by drug addiction, poverty and homelessness.

Quite. Or by the simple logic that they earn a lot more than they could otherwise. By no means all prostitutes are junkies, some are perfectly sensible ladies, or they used to be.

I am just guessing obviously, how would I know?

I know i wouldn't.

Obviously. I am male, I am alive, no clues there then.
