So to be clear, my voice as a so-called privileged sex worker is criticized as uninformed, but an actor who watched a few Internet videos of brothel raids is considered a knowledgeable and valuable ally. “There’s no way I could relate to what my character was going through,” Hathaway confessed about her role as the prostitute Fantine in Les Misérables. I don’t have any children that I’ve had to give up.” The horrible irony is that many sex workers are forced to give up their children because of initiatives like the one Hathaway and Dunham put their names to, which implies that we are unfit mothers and women.
In an article in Marie Claire, Hathaway recalled footage of a police raid on a brothel employing Asian women filmed by a camera crew, saying she “saw things that are unimaginable.” “They were all so tiny and scrunched up there together, but when they came out they weren’t shocked that there was a camera. How is it that a woman who plays a whore has more credibility than a woman who is one?

From Georgian theatre society to golden-age Hollywood, actresses have bedded the hordes and hookers have trod the boards.
Because of our connected history (those of us who were known to do both were referred to as demireps), I often wonder what would have happened if sex workers had been the ones who ended up with the more respectable social profile.
That’s what Steve Jobs would be doing if he were alive–working on an invisible, middle-of-screen camera. Apatow: I like to watch cuts on a computer with the Microsoft Word file open and take notes as I’m watching.
Dunham: So, the two of us do most of our work on the phone. When we write episodes together, we stay up late talking.
Male sex worker Luca Stevenson and Agata Dziuban of the International Committee on the Rights of Sex Workers in Europe wrote in a recent article in the Guardian that “the figure of the highly privileged sex worker continues to serve as a straw man for opponents of decriminalization.
Pundits agonize over whether sex workers ‘choose’ their jobs or are ‘forced,’ obscuring the simple fact that people continue to exercise agency even in the most difficult circumstances.” Indeed.She doesn’t see that she’s contributing to our distress by openly calling for the end of our freedom to do sexual work.Dunham was treated to a flurry of tweets from sex workers that had her backpedalling into one pile of shit after another, including my favourite: “Let’s create a world that provides REAL options for those living in poverty, homeless youth etc…” Yes, let’s do that, while simultaneously deriding the argument made by sex workers that sex work is real work.Would we call actresses actressed women, the way prohibitionists call us prostituted women, implying that they have no agency in this space, that they are simply tools of male demand? Somehow we're okay with six- and seven-year-olds 'deciding' on an acting career, supporting their families, being on screen and subject to public attention (and criticism), even simulating sexual abuse or sex acts, even though many child stars have decried the practice as adults, but grown women making decisions about their bodies – no way.Thanks for this personal and highly thoughtful piece. I am very appalled and infuriated by Lena Dunham's (and other famous women's) decision to intrusively have a say in a matter that has never touched her precious white/rich privileged life.This is the worst kick in the crotch when it comes to actors speaking out against sex work.
