Disclaimer: Anyone seriously concerned about the topic of prostitution is advocating for the decriminalization of the Prostituted (women and children). The position adopted in this text is to criminalize the buying and the procuring of women and children as goods in the “sex-industry” for the enjoyment of men.
I refuse to use the terminology “sex-work”, if not in quotations. Words are important, and the term “sex-work” conceals the fact that 95% of the Prostituted are Women and Children. The term also implies that prostitution is a reasonable career choice for a human being and a normal way to make a living, like domestic work or any other physical labor job.
“The Prostituted” is a term that actually reflects the reality of the situation and the ramifications of the Industry. Many survivors find it the most apt word. It is used by the artist Suzzan Blac who herself survived the slave-trade of prostitution and pornography.
