Some women do not feel as though they have another option for a career path, so they choose prostitution. Although many people claim that condoning prostitution could mean that they are condoning the degradation of women, this is not true. These women are choosing to be prostitutes as their profession, and they want the same respect as other career paths. Supporters want prostitution to be legalized, as well as regulated by police to prevent human trafficking, monitored by physicians for STDs, and allowed to be reported for any violent crimes against women in that work force. By doing this, a new career for both men and women can become available while bettering the community, but also by increasing the tax revenue.
Prostitution: Why Consensual Sex Should Be Legalized The selling of sex in exchange for money is a concept that has been utilized since the ancient civilizations. It is no wonder than that prostitution is known as the world 's oldest profession. To many feminist advocates, prostitution is a barbaric and dehumanizing act that should be outlawed. However, this is untrue as sex work is a necessary means of income for approximately one million women in America. As there will always be people selling their bodies for money, the U.S. government should prioritize providing legal support and health-related resources for sex workers.
When it comes to prostitution, many are quick to judge. Although a lot of opinions are actually close to the fact and statistics about the subject, there are still aspects not understood and a great lack of knowledge. Prostitution as a whole is either right or wrong depending on a person 's values, morals, and religion. This paper is not to support nor discriminate the act of being a prostitute. Hopefully there is a better understanding of the risks of being a prostitute, the riddance of a “female only” stigma and the several types of prostitute occupations as well as legalities of
It can have a lot of effects on women that are force an abducted to this trafficking, prostitution dirty system. The evidence presented has shown that human trafficking won 't stop till nobody wants sex anymore. Human trafficking is wrong and legalizing prostitution would not help out the the situation, and it would just make sex trafficking more dangerous that could affect women and children mainly around the
Exchanging money for sex was never frowned upon until recently, when in the early 20th century, U.S Health Officials blamed them for transmitting diseases. Since then the modern view of prostitutes has taken a path for the worse; they are now seen as a group of outcasts roaming and committing transgression. Criminalizing prostitution has only brought upon violence, an increase in sex trafficking, a higher risk of sexually transmitted diseases, and an increased prevalence in rape. If U.S Legislators attempted to pass a law to legalize prostitution, that would bring us one step closer to solving these issues. There are 27.3 rape incidents per 100,000 citizens in
In a study of women in Victoria brothels, it was found that despite legality, physical safety was one of the women’s biggest concerns (“Brothel safety a dangerous myth”). Research suggests that indoor workers may be more exposed to rape or attempted rape because their work occurs behind the closed doors of a brothel (“Brothel safety a dangerous myth”). The concealed walls of the brothel will only silence the screams of victims. As seen through the state of Victoria, it is naive to believe that the light of legalization will dissipate the roots of sexual abuse against sex workers. The only way to demolish this pattern of violence against sex workers is by making prostitution illegal in
I find that prostitution as a whole is currently not possible with the models that we have now. There is just too much corruption, deceit, and lies, that completely ruin the whole process of making prostitution a safe and healthy profession. So in conclusion, I believe that prostitution should not be legalized as of now. I do think that with more education and regulation, a more well developed model of prostitution could come to fruition and grace the women, and men for that matter, who do find that prostitution is the profession that they chose to do in life, and it could ultimately make prostitution a safe and healthy form of sex
Nevertheless, many people believe that the human trafficking issue has been blown completely out of proportion and that most women choose to work in a sexual capacity. Weitzer, a professor at George Washington University believes that human trafficking is not as large a problem as many citizens may believe. He stated that “…a ton of money indeed has been thrown at the problem — funding dubious ‘research’ as well as enforcement and interventions in the form of raids.” In his opinion, this money is doing nothing to stop human trafficking and should be used in a more helpful way for the United States. Corvid a dominatrix and journalist, believes sex work is real work and should be treated as such. She tells the story of Paula, a Romanian sex worker.
American government and societies are enforcing underage prostitution by increasing demand to have sex with young girls, criticizing victims as criminals and ignoring sex trafficking. The societies are not willing to rescue victims because they think it was their decision of going into prostitution or it is too risky. Some girls make this decision, but many of them are trafficked and enforced into prostitution. In the popular article titled, “Human Trafficking: A Misunderstood Global Scourge,” Stephanie states, “Often, girls who end up in prostitution are already vulnerable – they are abuse victims, come from unstable homes, have run away, or suffer mental impairments. Others are simply naive, susceptible to manipulation of a pimp, who often
In my neighborhood there are a lot of hard working single mother with their kid trying to get by. Those parents should not have to see or explain to their children what are those prostitution doing there five in the morning just standing there. “On The Run “, by Alice Gorman gives an insight on why someone will commit a crime maybe because of their backgrounds. Miss Linda and some others females are a good example to show why might prostitutes lingering around or why they have become one.
