  • Prostitution Harms Women

    The majority of prostitutes around the world are at a major disadvantage due to poverty and other bad circumstances. Many are trafficked and were sexually abused as children. The average age a girl goes into prostitution is 13. The average life span after entering prostitution is 7 more years. This is a human rights issue and a poverty issue. It may be good for males, but it is horrible for females. Males who pay for prostitutes get off on a woman's disadvantage. His pleasure is her enslavement. Most prostitutes, if they survive, have an aversion to men and sex afterwards. This is not "freedom." It is not "work." It is not about "consenting adults." It is gender slavery.

  • Yes, feminists should oppose prostitution.

    I believe that feminists should oppose prostitution. Women who are prostitutes are degrading themselves and lowering themselves just for the pleasure of men. Feminists need to stand behind them and help them realize how prostitution devalues them. Feminists should help women get off the streets by helping them find housing or decent jobs.

  • Prostitution Demeans Women

    Prostititution is demeaning to women and it destroys their self-esteem and self-worth. Feminists should oppose prostitution because women can be so much more than sex objects. Prostitution doesn't give women equal rights under the law at all because no women pay men for sex, right? That's not exactly equal. Feminists should oppose prostitution simply because it completely degrades one gender over another.

  • Feminists should oppose prostitution.

    Feminists should oppose prostitution. Prostitution gives females a bad rap anyway. It is a highly dangerous career-choice for anyone that does it. I am against prostitution but people do some pretty desperate stuff when they are broke and need to provide food and shelter for themselves and their families in general.

  • Yes, prostitutes are bad influence to us.

    They corrupt the minds of men to make them think that sex is the greatest pleasure and they made women tolerate them, which why men objectify them. There are many factions in feminism, the future lies on women. One faction can make the future worst or best, so choose wisely. If they want to end sex objectification they must be modest, being attractive will be just having a natural face and natural hairstyle, just only a modest outfit, no make-up,high-heels and other accessories, or doing the right thing that most can't do. Never using what most women use such as high-heels is the hardest thing to do for most but they can be trained. Women are trained not to shame of their bodies and to shame their natural beautiful faces such as freckles. It's very easy to respect modest women because they doing that virtue and it's the hardest virtue for women. It's very hard to respect immodest women based on gender, they must be modest before they respected. No modesty no respect, that's logical.

  • Prostitution is illegal for a reason

    There are a lot of women who are intelligent and choose to live this life, however there are many more who are exploited due to their poverty, low education, dependency on drugs. Prostitution is a often a business of weak women brainwashed into depending on their pimps for everything. Many of them do not do it because they are strong independent women, they do it because they feel they have no other choice and become victims of brainwashing: being told that they won't survive without their pimps and clients, they need their "daddies" to provide for them and protect them. Of course there are women who aren't included in this group and do it for other reasons, and I think thats much more acceptable, however, legalization means those women who are brainwashed, desperate, and blackmailed will be stuck that way. I don't think it's right to buy and sell human bodies for sexual pleasure. I think it's degrading to women, and although it's not a very common business for men, it would be degrading for them as well. A body is not something that should have a price tag on it. Human rights means people are worth more than that. Even if the woman is doing it 100% of her own volition, it encourages the misogynistic belief that women are basically sex toys who are only good for their bodies.

  • Yes, feminists should oppose prostitution.

    Prostitution takes advantage of under privileged girls and causes many crimes to be committed against them. Most prostitutes end up using hard drugs because they can not live soberly with the deeds that they are doing. Feminists should be against this illegal act because it is bad for women to do.

  • A feminist is someone who supports equal gender rights.

    If we assume it's ok for a man to be involved in prostitution then it's also ok for a woman.

    I makes me angry when I hear about prostitution as something where men take advantage of women! Women sign up for this job. So do men. It's an equal exchange. Some men like to be dominant and some me like to be dominated but thats a separate conversation. The bottom line is they are presumably willing participants.

    If someone is being forced to do a certain job then that's obviously not ok. Lets concentrate on giving people choices rather than hanging on to extreme social conservatism.

  • No, Feminists Should Not Oppose

    Prostitution is going to happen whether it is legal or not. It is the "oldest profession," after all. In places like Holland, legalization has allowed the government to regulate it a little more effectively. So, if feminists truly cared about protecting women, they need to support the effort at real legalization where women participating are not involved with abusive pimps and are regularly checked for disease.

  • No, feminists should not oppose prostitution.

    Prostitution, we'd like to think, is a voluntary occupation. For those that may be unable to adapt to economic demand or are in a bad state and in need of change or perhaps conversely enjoy this occupation should not be subject of disapproval. It should be noted that there are male prostitutes as well, therefore it isn't a matter of inequality. Degradation in certain respects is a product of choice not by force. Prostitution when legal is just another job.

  • No, feminists should support prostitution

    If prostitution is legal in a given place, then it should be supported by feminists. Not necessarily supporting the "act" of prostitution, but the right to pursue prostitution as an avocation if a woman desires.

    The flip slide of course is that a great deal of prostitution is forced, which nobody should support. If prostitution is legal and regulated, though, there is no reason to deny someone the right to pursue it, even if one would rather it not be their friend or relative choosing that path.

  • Not necessarily

    There are different arguments here, but feminism at its base argues for equal treatment of women. Prostitution can be a consensual arrangement between two people, so some feminists may argue for it, or at least for its permission, but I'm sure some of them would argue against it since prostitution isn't always the healthiest of jobs.

  • Is this seriously a question...?

    Feminists should be able to believe in what they want.
    The idea that this is even a question or debate is ridiculous.
    Why do we, as a society, feel as though we have a right to demand or instill certain believes upon one another?
    Who cares if a feminist opposes or encourages prostitution?
    I'm sure they believe as they do for whatever valid reasons they choose, and we should be content with just that.
    Individuals have the right to choose what they believe in and make their own decisions -- feminist or not.
    It's a topic that can be seen in many different ways, and shouldn't exclusively be deemed a debate that certain groups advocate for or oppose.

  • I don’t think that feminists should oppose prostitution.



    I don’t think that feminists should oppose prostitution. Feminists should support anything that helps
    women gain power. Feminists should be
    strong supporters of women marring wealthy men.
    Feminists should support all female entrepreneurs. And, feminists should be strong supporters of
    legalized prostitution in each and every single state in America.


  • Make Your Own Decision

    I do not believe someone should oppose prostitution just because they think feminists oppose it. Feminism is not about following the crowd, it's about making your own decisions. I think prostitution can be seen in many different lights and has many nuances. I think people can make a myriad of different arguments for and against prostitution and a feminists could easily land on either side.
