Porn Stars Fear Kamala’s “Hatred” Toward Their Industry

"Harris is so against sex work that she came on porn stars’ radar years ago."

OPINION – Cherie DeVille

As an American, I am thrilled to see Vice President-elect Kamala Harris enter the West Wing.

As a porn star, I am terrified.

I respect Harris for seeing gays and women of color through a compassionate lens. After four years of Vice President Mike Pence, it’ll be nice to see someone make the executive branch empathetic again.

In other words, sex work looks terrible. As a district attorney, senator, and presidential candidate, Harris has trafficked in outdated sex-worker cliches.

Out reports that California Attorney General Harris fought in court in 2015 to ensure the state continued criminalizing sex work. Harris’s office’s reasoning: “[P]rostitution is linked to the transmission of AIDS and sexually transmitted diseases.” Republican Senator Jesse Helms couldn’t have said it better himself.

In many circumstances, Harris’s actions harm sex workers …
