When on this same website there is a event photo thread of massive protests from the OO/Socialist Left of people trying to end the sex trade of children?

It seems pretty hypocritical to be helping people wanting out of the sex industry but then disrupting the work of people who are trying to do the same thing for the most vulnerable elements of sex workers. Or is it because I am not blinded by modern liberal fascism?
