Sex work, media, activism, and privilege

I've got three different pieces of media swirling around in my head, making me think thoughts that maybe aren't perfectly developed, but definitely a good jumping-off point for conversation: Kerwin Kaye's post on Class, Race, and sex worker activism , the recent conversations about Susanah Breslin's working girl and john blogs, and a book I recently read, and had my ass kicked by - Sex at the Margins: Migration, Labour Markets and the Rescue Industry (you can watch the Live Girl Review video about it here).

Middle School Students' Trip To Planned Parenthood Investigated

In Manchester, New Hampshire, a YMCA after-school program included a field trip to Planned Parenthood.

Of course, the anti-choice nutters are screaming, and there's an investigation by the city school board now. There's even talk of "discipline" for those responsible. Heaven forbid children should actually be exposed to **shock** OPTIONS that might permit them to stay in school. Next thing you know, those heathen schools will be indoctinating the kids with SCIENCE!!!1111!!1!

Sorry, but this really bugs me.

Anyways, you can read the full CNN story here . Here's an excerpt:

MANCHESTER, New Hampshire (AP) -- The city school board ordered an investigation into an after-school program run by the YMCA in which some middle school students were taken to visit a Planned Parenthood clinic.

New Hampshire Right to Life, an abortion opponent, is now asking for equal time with the seventh and eighth grade students, as well.
