"why the obsession with clueless, zit-faced youth?"

Yeah, those clueless, zit-faced 34-year-olds...

I don't agree on the first letter.
People go to the gym and the bar for reasons other than getting laid.

I mean, I wouldn't. But I hear people do.

Height is a funny thing. Usually tall women and short men have looser rules and tall men/short women have the freedom to have relatively tight rules.

If a 5'4 guy refuses to date a woman taller than him, he's gonna have a bad time.

If a 6'2 guy only wants a girlfriend who has to step on her tiptoes to kiss him (how picky!) he'll probably be fine (most women fall into that group)

I'm 5'3 and I prefer guys who are at least about 5 inches taller than me. So average height and up, really. Meanwhile a woman who's 5'10 might have a rough time if she wants to make height a criteria.

Same deal with intelligence.

She's 31. It's the first thing she says about herself.

First off 'sex work' as a whole isn't illegal. There are lots of forms of legal sex work. But the criminalization of certain kinds of sex work does have consequences like those you've mentioned.

At the same time, sex work is more complicated than you're implying and you could very easily admit that this isn't really your area of personal expertise as I've encouraged you to do or...

"I'm on the spectrum."

So... no, in other words.

There's a big problem with people who have no personal experience as sex workers trying to talk about what sex work is like. I appreciate the sentiment of what you're saying but I personally don't think it's helpful.

The first point you made (that sex work is like other work) was valid, and that's where the focus of de-stigmatizing goes for a reason.

@Erica

Have you ever done sex work?

If a man's favourite sex worker wasn't a better listener than his wife, the business would look a lot different.

Hunter's actually... right on that one. (So is Eudaemonic) Sex workers can and do deny service to people unwilling to pay the asking amount. Some are economically pressed into compromising just like other workers are pressed into working off the clock, or coming in with the flu etc etc etc.

Hunter is of course, SO wrong, about his other point. Sex workers give 'much more than just sex' as a matter of course.

Thanks!

I've been out of school for a while so I'm rusty but I'll be getting back into it soon. Neurodevelopment was dryyy, lots of colour-coded diagrams of blobbies that eventually become the brain, lots of awkwardly named genes, etc. Though I found the processes by which axons direct themselves to be pretty interesting. When I took physiology of pregnancy and birth we were told the youngest a baby had ever survived was a whopping 21 weeks(!!)

You probably told me this before but what do you do these days?
