White negronis will be a goal for this summer for me, for sure (hold the lilacs. Love them for you, but I can't lilac anything.) I love you and appreciate you and learn so much from you.

I love everything about this post. One of my former students who is my bonus-daughter told me 7 years ago about her sex work, and I knew in that moment, confirmed in my bones, that the societal stigma of it was entirely wrong, hateful and just part of patriarchy, capitalism and white supremacy. And I've never referred to it in any other way except "sex work" since that moment, because I want to confer the same respect as I would to any kind of work. All work is honorable. Exploitation and abuse are not honorable, and that is what has been done to sex workers.
