  1. this is why prostitution should be legalised. adults should be treated as such and sex workers should not e prey for lifes inadequats how many more have to die.

    And justice is done. Hopefully the sentence will be suitable.

  3. Lone sex work will always be dangerous. It is at least doubly so for women of trans background because of the addition weird attitudes to us, even hatred. Note that this man killed Destiny immediately went with two other women without any violence.

    What was Destiny’s history that she was doing sex work? Was it really her preference or had the way the UK mistreats such children rail-roaded her into that dangerous position, to be callously strangled at 29?

    I truly wish that all the laws based on moral disapproval were binned! Prostitution has been around forever, and the protection needed is against exploitation, with education and health support rather than a blanket “it’s wrong”
