  • SWERFs: I'm anti sex industry because I just want to help women! Sex work is sex trafficking!
  • Sex worker activists: Except it's not, they're two different things and the key difference between them is consent and autonomy. It's like comparing farming with agricultural slavery. Also equating sex work with sex trafficking actually harms BOTH sex workers and sex trafficking victims. There are hundreds, if not thousands of sex worker activists and academic sex workers who are working hard to improve working conditions and destigmatize sex work while creating a world in which sex trafficking doesn't exist and sex trafficking victims can seek support and help. Also by attempting to define and disempower two groups of people when you belong to neither, you are speaking over people who are perfectly capable of speaking for themselves.
  • SWERFs: Shhhhhhhh
  • SWERFs: Stop talking, I can't refute all these points but I just know you're wrong.
  • SWERFs: I know better than you because I am completely uninvolved in and ignorant about this industry. My ignorance makes me impartial.
  • SWERFs: Why are you telling me I'm talking over you, I just want to save you.
  • SWERFs: I'M HERE TO SAVE YOU STOP TALKING WHEN I AM SAVING YOU!

Space-Saving Design Ideas

Space saving furniture

Pity most of us in small spaces will struggle to afford them, but brilliant design. Making the housing crisis cool! But genuinely impressive as well. I want the book chair. And not many reasons I couldn’t knock up my own versions of a few of these using found and skipped stuff.

Whenever someone refers to the gay community as “queer folk” I imagine us all like woodland sprites, we are the queer folk community, we are born of flowers and fairy dust, we are destroying the sanctity of marriages and corrupting children
