“The war on sex workers”

Since I’ve spent a fair bit of time this week using the example of being pro-nudity but anti-prostitution to make a general philosophical point, let me also direct your attention to this piece in Reason magazine by Melissa Gira Grant. This is an opportunity to talk about the real consequences of bans on prostitution, rather than worrying about the abstract consistency of philosophical positions (much as the later is of interest in many ways). Whichever way you view things, real people are affected by this issue – including in their liberty and their livelihoods.

Have at it!
