Maya Angelou Was A Sex Worker

(NOTE: Based on time elapsed since the posting of this entry, the BS-o-meter calculates this is 13.266% likely to be something that Ferrett now regrets.)

One of America’s greatest poets was a prostitute at one point in her life.  She herself was unashamed by it.  I had not heard of that.
My hope is that, reading that, a lot of people will realize they have some pretty negative stereotypes about sex work.
My fear is that rather than reconsidering their opinions on prostitution, people will reflexively lower their opinion of Maya Angelou.  And that would be a goddamned shame.
