These stories are so tragic. The majority of girls do not choose this lifestyle but are forced into prostitution through desperation to survive. Only to be preyed on by sexual predators. Society seems to have little sympathy for girls murdered while working the street no understanding of how they ended up on the street.

Calista, you are absolutely right. I'm so saddened by these stories. I fought my own battles to be employed after transition though I was fortunate enough to be able to secure decent employment (at a fraction of what I had made previously as a male). Our society makes it very difficult for most transgender people. It should come as no surprise that so many turn to prostitution or other unlawful sources of income.

Legalize prostitution so the sex-workers can have safe places to do their business.  They keep having to isolate themselves when with a client thus putting themselves in extreme danger.  Most of the time it goes well and it is just sex for money but it only takes one.  The morally minded don't really give a damn though and feel that legalizing it condons it and as reported in the article "It's their own fault."  How cold and uncaring a statement!
