One reason, among many, I’m critical of liberals, radicals and progressives of late is what feels like a lack of integrity. There’s rejoicing about the downfall of far-right troll Milo Yiannopoulos for advocating sex with children by arguing for their agency. The dirty secret is there’s plenty of tolerance on the left for sex worker narratives that also argue choice, but directly fuel recruitment of underage girls for commercial sex with old men, and aversion to prosecution of johns.
Sordid stuff, which I’ve written about before. Read my latest here.
