“Speaking of Prostitution” — VERY HELPFUL responses to all common arguments that support prostitution
Here’s a great post on how prostitution affects ALL society. It’s from the excellent resource “Speaking of Prostitution,” (by the European group Kvinnofronten), which all anti-prostitution people should read, as it will help you deal with all of the common pro-prostitution arguments you will encounter.
“Oppression of women:
This is good to keep in mind when we see how celebrity prostitution glamorizers describe prostitution as something sexually “liberated” or even as “women’s right to do what they want with their own bodies” – in magazines, TV, and on the Internet.
These prostitution glamorizers often talk about prostitution as if it only concerns one particular woman and one particular man right at that particular moment, as if they were isolated from everything and everyone else – as if prostitution happens in a vacuum, unaffected by society’s gender norms and gender power structures. They don’t see, or they don’t want to see, that prostitution is about sexualization of power. Power based on gender, power based on class, power based on ethnicity.
Prostitution exists, as does everything else, in a context. In turn, prostitution also affects society – especially society’s view of gender.”
