Teen Vogue Tells Girls They’re Not Real Feminists If They Don’t Like Sex Work
Teen Vogue has been accused of promoting prostitution to young girls after it shared an opinion essay with the headline “Why Sex Work Is Real Work” to Twitter on Sunday.
In the op-ed, which was published in April, Dr. Tlaleng Mofokeng argued for mainstream acceptance and decriminalization of sex work. Mofokeng said that the majority of sex workers are “cisgender” and “transgender women.”
“If you support women’s rights, I urge you to support the global demand for sex work decriminalization,” she wrote in the feminist-themed essay.
