Do sex workers deserve to be named and shamed in the media?

Irish tabloid SundayWorldNewspaper has posted a video showing a sex worker's face and address. The reporter pretends to be a client but goes in with a hidden camera.

OP, why do you come here again and again with the same links? To be frank, we all agree here that despite our views on sex works that sex workers do not involve abuse.

If you want people in this section to agree that sex work is a good thing you might be waiting a long time.

Morning <bleary>

This thread was started by a returning troll (SURPRISE!!) - but we're inclined to let it stand for now in the hope that it will stop this particular merry-go-round of repetitive threads. The OP has been dealt with but do please report anything else you think we ought to see.

The state should not be in the business of naming and "shaming" anyone ffs.

They can't do fuck all else right.

Bump

Well, there are some individuals who identify as feminists who have a very nasty attitude towards sex workers as well as objecting to the sex industry. But I doubt that any of them go so far as to put dog shit through letterboxes: that's much more likely to be the work of right-wing male moralists.
