Officially accepting the system of prostitution as a norm and as work is merely sending a message to men that it is okay to treat women as subordinate.

The issue of regulation of the system of prostitution in the form of brothels is now no longer just a question of public and public order. The issue now touches on whole position and dignity of women.

Friends, PLEASE would you retweet and share this article? In my 40+ years as an out lesbian I don't think I have ever seen the level of hatred and vitriol being slung in our direction. Thank you:

The real cause of the system of prostitution in general is men’s demand for women’s bodies to buy for their sexual gratification, it is not about women and their sexual liberation.

The system of prostitution is the ultimate in the reduction of women to sexual objects and commodities which can be bought, sold and exploited.

Let’s work together to abolish the system of prostitution and put an end to this form of men’s behavior in the interests of women’s equality and freedom from harm.

True! It is a system designed for men to be able to access women’s bodies to do with them as they please.

I keep on asking since most women join “sex work” at a tender age of 13 generally if they chose or when@they become adults the crime of child abuse now becomes work? 🤷🏾‍♀️🤷🏾‍♀️

Very true! The men who bought me in prostitution said they came to “try” what they have either heard about from men’s discussions or seen in a movie because they cannot try it with their wives.

What people do not understand is the fact that accepting the system of prostitution as work and as normal is accepting this for following generations our daughters. This system is very harmful and if we seek to curb men’s violence against women prostitution must be eliminated

I refuse to take part in men’s commodification and objectification of women’s bodies for sexual gratification by accepting that prostitution is a form of work. Women’s bodies are not for sale!

“Decriminalising the sex trade is saying that prostitution is just another job. & if it’s just another job, poor women will end up having no option but to take it. That’s how it works & if you think otherwise, you’re deluding yourself.”

Prostitution is harmful to prostituted persons, this is evident by looking at the deteriorating lives of prostituted women since entry into the system of prostitution. Whilst for for buyers that’s not the case.

Exactly how does this decriminalization improve or promote the safety of “sex workers”? I am curious to know. 🤷🏾‍♀️🤷🏾‍♀️

As much as He (the God you serve) sent people to place you, please also do understand that the same God will use people when removing you. Somethings in our lives are removed for a purpose. Why don’t you just allow God the fight and sit back and do as per instructions?

Of course because it never about the woman, but about their paid access to women’s bodies to commodify, objectify and abuse freely.
