It makes sense that transactivists and sex worker’ rights activists would have an affinity for one another. Transactivists and pimps both blame women for men’s violence. Pimps say men wouldn’t enslave, rape, and brutalize prostituted women if feminists stopped criticizing them for it. Transactivists say that men would stop raping, brutalizing, and killing transwomen if feminists would stop criticizing them for it.
I’m 100% certain that decriminalizing pimps and brothel owners won’t stop Punters from raping and brutalizing prostituted women and children. Likewise I am 100% sure that feminists calling transwomen women wouldn stop men from killing them.
