Ok, I got a thought-provoking comment the other day, well a couple of them actually, but this particular comment had some questions I’ve attempted to answer, here’s question 1:
How does one effect change in the organizations that perpetuate the problem that you are describing? (to paraphrase: the problem of conflating trafficking with prostitution and prostitution with being an inherent victim of rape-culture type systemic oppression)
Short answers are (yes omg, this IS the short version!) –
Is it possible to say in an understandable way that prostitution needs to be decriminalized not only because women are harmed when they don’t have legal protection, but also because it is a gynocentric social contract based on the hormonal changes brought on by human oogamy, and that to restrict it restricts a woman’s right to reproductive freedom as surely as restricting abortion does?
Pateman got it wrong.
Before there were social contracts or sexual contracts there were biological contracts. Biological contracts have always been and always will be, unless we as a species learn to asexually reproduce, and even then there will be a contract between parent and offspring.
