Vegas sex workers demand rights, respect

Strippers and hookers are trying to get some respect in Sin City. The so-called sex workers demonstrated yesterday on the steps of the courthouse in downtown Las Vegas. They’re calling for more legal protection and decriminalization of the world’s oldest profession.

Starchild, a 36-year-old former Army Reservist stood amid rallying sex workers in Las Vegas on Thursday and boasted of his bid for a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.

“And that ballot is going to say ‘escort/exotic dancer,'” he said, beaming.

Protesting prostitutes, strippers and men and women of the night said they came to the downtown courthouse steps to try enable others like Starchild – active advocates for sex workers. The group called for more respect and stronger legal protections for legal and illegal workers in the sex industry. They complained that a series of new antihuman trafficking laws restrict their freedom and called for the decriminalization of the world’s oldest profession.

    >new antihuman trafficking laws

    Yeah better to make sure they have their jobs and safety than to try and prevent women being abducted and forced into prostitution.

  2. OhForTheLoveOf says:

    #1 – Why do you think that doing the first thing means not doing the second thing?

  3. AB CD says:

    #2, For people dealing with this problem, that is the conclusion that has been reached. It’s why there was a huge backlash when the US tried to specify only ‘forced’ prostitution.

    I will be nice and friendly with Starchild for $100 / hour or $500 for the whole night. But I will need to see the cash up front. No kissing.
