Followers of Harding and other Twitter users quickly pointed their fingers at the senator from South Carolina. Fellow sex workers I invite you to stand with me during this crucial time. EVERY major news network is in my inbox including high profile lawyers willing to take this case. I cannot do this alone. Every sex worker I know has been hired by this man. Wondering if enough of us spoke out if that could get him out of office?
In Washington, D. The result was widespread derision and mockery of the senator. The sordid affair began when a male sex worker and gay porn star named Sean Harding publicly accused the senator of contracting his services—allegations that effectively outed the man as gay, to the extent one believes them. Wondering if enough of us spoke out if that could get him out of office? It was cruel and painful to read. The article has since been taken down, but the details it exposed will live forever on the Internet. Throughout it all, many LGBT activists cheered on the mob—despite outing being a practice that normally is considered immoral and cruel by most gay people.
