On In Conversation With My Friend, a Prostitute

So your sex worker writer friend couldn't have told her own story? She needed you to ask only about her WORST client, and about married men (tons and tons of non-sex workers sleep with married people and never give a shit, why is it her moral responsibility)? Why is it "frightfully" easy to become a sex worker? What exactly is frightening about it? I know you are trying to be sympathetic...but, really, sex workers are capable of telling their own stories. In the words of the aforementioned Charlotte Shane, sex worker writer extraordinaire: "Sex workers don't need crumbs anymore. Oh you're going to deign to interview and "not demonize" us for your byline? We are not impressed."
