The Peters and the Pauls: The fight for sex work decriminalisation in Queensland – » The Australian Independent Media Network

There is nothing wrong with offering or paying for sex services by consenting adults. I think there has been a general taboo about talking about or doing anything sexual for far too long. Slut shaming is a very real thing and begins from an early age. There is still time to make a difference and jump on the second wave of the sexual revolution bandwagon and advocate for complete decriminalisation for sex workers in Queensland. Lobby your local MP’s, write emails and letters in support even if you aren’t a provider, just because it’s the right thing to do. Let your friends and family know that you are in support of sex worker rights and tell them why. All we want is a safer work place, the ability to ask for help and to receive support when it is needed. A win/win for everyone in my book!

While President Donald Trump’s appointment of former Fox News executive Bill Shine to a top communications role was unsurprising to critics, many denounced the selection as the latest signal that the president holds contempt for the concerns of women.

Other motions to be debated at state council include:

Calls for the Commonwealth Sex Discrimination Act to re-insert “man” and “woman” in the place of “sexual orientation” and “gender identity”. The aim is that a person will define their gender as either male or female, according to their biological and reproductive function.
Calls to ban the Safe Schools program from Victorian schools and any other curriculum teaching a person’s gender may be different from their biological sex or that people can transition.

Did Trump’s lawyer just implicate Trump in the Stormy Daniels payment?

 

Adult film star Stormy Daniels received a $130,000 payment from Donald Trump's lawyer.When evaluating President Donald Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen’s new admission that he paid porn star Stormy Daniels $US130,000 ($165,000) out of his own pocket, it’s worth focusing on what he doesn’t deny: namely, that Trump had anything to do with it.
