Patreon has begun its descent on a slippery slope familiar to sex workers.
As a community, we are already banned from PayPal, VenMo, bank accounts from certain banks, Square, Mailchimp, and more. We are barred from expressing our full humanity as sex workers (as in: we cannot talk about or share images from our livelihood or sex lives) on Facebook, Instagram, and many, many more.
This is a soft version (a continuation, even) of Comstock laws in the 19th century.
Patreon is still a usable platform for many sex workers - but it's on its way to becoming yet another wasteland, barren of sexual expression or permitted sexual labor. Please act now:
