CHECK IT - non-sex worker privilege
There’s been a need for this list in my life lately and it turns out it’s pretty hard to find. I like this one from thepeacockangel and have a number of additions as well. There may be a few repeats - sorry, not sorry I didn’t take them out. A little reminder never hurt anyone.
Further, not all of these are true of all sex workers, nor do all laborers enjoy all of these privileges, but they are things to keep in mind if you are not a sex worker and especially if you are an academic/program director/activist/slacktivist/fucking executive director/sociology major or whatever.
Nothing about us without us.
- My profession provides me with access to health insurance/care.
- I have paid sick days.
- I have paid vacation time.
- I can expect reasonable hours or compensation for overtime.
- I can expect to remain in my profession until I reach retirement age.
- I am not forced to renegotiate my pay on a daily basis.
- I can go to work in the same place every day.
- I have access to the support of other professionals in my field.
- My place of employment provides me with the necessary supplies to do my job.
- I have access to a human resources department.
- I can expect a raise over time or for my performance.
- I have access to pay stubs.
- I can utilize my pay stubs to sign a lease or secure a loan.
- I can file taxes with ease.
- If I am laid off I can collect unemployment.
- If I am injured at work I can collect worker’s compensation.
- My place of employment will cover my work related travel costs.
- I enjoy a regular schedule.
- I do not worry about being “outed” for my profession.
- People neither victimize nor vilify me for working.
- I can talk about stress in my workplace without being pressured to quit my job or blamed.
- I can be honest with my doctor about the nature of my labor without fear of judgment or poor treatment.
- I have coworkers.
- My place of employment provides a structure for airing grievances.
- My professional title is not an insult.
- My profession is positively represented in the media.
- If I am not paid for my work, I can pursue legal action.
- I can collect my work experience onto a resume and expect this to aid me in seeking future employment.
The rest of this list is more likely to be triggering.
This is so incredibly important. People forget just how dangerous, hard, inconvenient, and lonely life is as a sex worker, even in cases like mine where I have sex worker community, am out to most people in my life, work in a (mostly) safe indoor space, and screen clients.
