Sex work, violence mention
(Not to say every sex worker's experience is on the streets that's simply what my experience was akin to)
I was a sex worker for about 5 years and it's an incredibly stigmatized and violent trade that did not favors for my mental (or physical) health but it kept me from starving
All I'm saying is don't contribute to a stigma that gets working women killed and just help your local sex workers
Sex work, drugs
If you're one of those shit heads who's like 'i don't want to give them.money!!!! What if they use it to buy drugs!!!!!'
They probably will
I know I did
But would you rather give someone money for decent drugs and clean needles or know they'll get it the cheap way using laced and diluted shit with dirty needles so they can unknowingly overdose or even just get sick and die out on the street bc they can't afford medical treatment?
The most direct way you can help your local sex worker is financial support
Sex work doesn't exactly have benefits like an office job and health insurance is expensive
If you have the means, financial help us almost always appreciated
Beyond this, just help give sex workers a voice and stay sex- positive and contact your representative to push for protective legislation
