    I? think this is so pathetic to attack the occupation rather than the poverty. If you came to me today or tomorrow telling me, “Happy Hooker, I will allow you to be a predator ON the masses by offering credit (in defiance of usury laws),” Not all of us live uncomfortable lives and are in poverty.I have a nice new car and live in a nice neighborhood BECAUSE of my occupation. It’s misogyny that’s the crime, not my morality.
