I actually sat with the CEO of @BasisSexWork whilst this journalist @charleshymas interviewed her for this article. Not only has he not mentioned Basis once, but he has deliberately excluded all the positive facts she gave him about the work they do. So I’ll help you out, Charles
We’ll start here, because it’s kind of embarrassingly obvious Charles. In your article, you blame an increase of STD rates in Leeds entirely on the managed zone. The sex workers of Leeds are not responsible for this. In Leeds, people also have sex with non sex workers (weird!)
Since the managed approach has been brought in, reports of violent crime from sex workers to the police has TRIPLED. I wonder why that stat didn’t make it into your article?

How many times will media outlets print this story? "Few convictions for #sextrafficking & forced labour... because most victims do not report it. Unfortunately, people often don't feel they are victims, for them it's a form of work." Unfortunately!
The story's the same no matter what countries migrants leave from or arrive to. They feel they've got work, even if it's worse than what they hoped for. They're making more than they could've. All outsiders' trying to get them to feel like victims to be 'sent home': Waste of Time
What do police & #RescueIndustry achieve? Few convictions because so-called victims won't cooperate. T'would be better to admit defeat and announce drastic deportation policy: 'We're getting rid of migrants we don't want'. But wait, then they couldn't feel good about Rescues.

I finally have some energy after my surgery to talk a little bit more about #FOFSTA/#SESTA. Today, I want to talk to you about why a lot of anti-trafficking agencies were not able to say much against the acts publicly.
I don't know how many of you know that a lot of the federal #humantrafficking funding is tied in some weird political crap. While generally a bipartisan issue, there is a lot of conservative control of the way funding gets distributed.
One of the biggest issues with federal funding is that you have to sign an agreement not to promote engagement in prostitution or promote the legalization in prostitution. Not to be confused with the decriminalization of prostitution.

1. In times when ad venues are drying up, networking is paramount. Pool your resources among a trusted group of friends. #wednesdaywisdom
2. Its tempting to hoard, but being an island can prevent new opportunities. Don't just fake flirt on twitter; invite someone to lunch.
3. Before any1 says, "but there's so much drama," If you see it coming, don't ignore the signs. Quietly bow out. Ur not obligated to anyone.
