Prostitution is a job that demeans women. Some women will say it empowers them and their bodies, but there's another way of looking at it. They are basically selling themselves as a product or an object. This objectifies women, and cheapens them in the eyes of men. It does not create equality, it takes it away. It makes women something that can be bought and sold, just as slaves used to be. It also changes the meaning of sex and what it's supposed to be all about. Women should respect themselves and their bodies, and not sell themselves--or their services--as if they were objects.
Prostitution does demean women in many ways. It devalues their bodies and rights that they have as human beings. Their bodies become more of a tool object for people to use, not a individual human being that has feelings or thoughts of themselves. It devalues women in terms of how society views them, and they are viewed pretty low because they are selling their body for sex or other sexual acts.
Rapists also demeans men. Natural beauty and modesty of women also demeans. Women are now tolerating the prostitutes. In the next century, women's fashion will be 10 times or more sexually attractive than strip dancers' dresses today. The returning of the ice age will not make women modest again, suits similar to scuba diving suit will be worn for winter, thin and tight but warm.
Prostitution demeans both women and the men that utilize the service. It consists of the purchase and sale of a woman's body, as if it were an object. This doesn't only make a woman's body less sacred, but it objectifies them. Women (and men) should not let their bodies become available through money. Sex is meant to be shared between those that love each other.
The reason behind it is that no women wants this profession they are compelled to do so no one want it on their own, even other women treat them with negativity. There is no respect even people who come there don't regard them so how can we say that it 's a good profession if it is so then let us set this ambition for our daughters.
I believe that most prostitutes are not doing it by choice. That includes those who are prostitutes because they need the money and don't see any other way to get it. Now there are lots of unpleasant or dangerous jobs that people do only for the money. But prostitution is fundamentally different I think, although I have trouble saying why that is so.
I believe there are women in the field who are more than happy to offer the service, but there are many others who feel pushed or forced into the situation. For those that made the choice to enter the field, it is not demeaning, but for those that feel they must do it to make ends meet, it is very demeaning.
Prostitution demeans the men who utilize it, but it also demeans the women who provide such services. And yet we should have more respect for them than for the men. Most of them have seen no other route for supporting themselves or their children, which is why they turn to the life.
Without a doubt, prostitution demeans women in more ways than one. A woman that thinks they're empowered by prostitution should think again. Men have most of the control in the world of prostitution, and a woman would be crazy to think otherwise. Prostitution takes advantage of thousands of women each day.
As much as I don't buy this argument when it comes to guns, It's completely relevant to this question: Prostitution doesn't demean women, People demean women. I can't stand it when somebody's moral argument boils down to "for your own, Good, You can't do something I dislike, Because then I'll have to dislike you. " It used to be the same with homosexuality.
"You can't be gay because then you'll have a hard life. "
"I will make it so. "
Usually this stuff is better disguised than how I'm presenting it, But just barely.
Money and sex in general never go away regardless of the concept or form it takes (i.E. Marriage/prostitution). Love is not necessary for two people who want to have sex, nor is sex necessary for two people who love each other. People with strong egos and high opinions of themselves tend to find it demeaning (i.E. "I don't need to pay for it", or "I'm worth more than that"), which is why they feel so strongly against prostitution and tend to favor marriage. Other people just want sex without complications or paying an ungodly high price through marriage. Some people just like sex, some use it as a means to not have to have a real job or buy drugs. Some just like the money. I don't believe any one person, or group of people for that matter, has the right to answer the question of how people should approach their own sexuality on behalf of all humanity.
Is a woman who stays in a loveless marriage for a lifestyle or a young woman who marries a man in his 80's not the same as a prostitute? Just because society recognizes one type of relationship but not the other is somewhat hypocritical. Society has judged women in the sex industry to be less deserving of respect than the rest of us.
People talk about prostitution like it's some kind of monolithic enterprise when the fact is that it takes many different forms. For girls who are streetwalkers or forced to support their pimps, it probably is demeaning. But for the many women who freely choose to be escorts, do sex work for good money, and enjoy the independence of running their own business in a way that meets their needs, I doubt that it's demeaning for them.
Only women who are prostitutes can say if they feel degraded and objectified . . . . Prostitution is demeaning for some women and empowers other women How an individual prostitute feels about what she does is a very personal thing. She may be unhappy and feel used by the john. She may be abused by a pimp. She may be a prostitute out of desperation to pay the bills and feed her family. Some women may feel it's just another job and give it no more thought then that. It's also possible some women feel powerful and in charge of their own lives when they are prostituting.
Some women would do this in order to survive. Don't judge those women. These women probably are trying to survive. It is not anyone's business what some women do with their own bodies. These women do this out of necessity. Look at the women who strip for money at a strip club are those women to be made feel ashamed for it. For these women it may be empowering. It is not in anyone's interest to judge these women.
If a woman (or man) is at wit's end, and the only available option they have is to sell their body to have enough money to scrape by, and they fell demeaned through that work, it is their opinion. Many prostitutes feel empowered by their choice to market themselves, so it really depends on both the client and the sex worker themselves to decide if it is demeaning work, not decisively on or the other.
Some say women would be selling themselves as a product and others would be looking at them as such, but nobody is going to look at them that way if others did not think in such a negative way. This is why women say they feel empowered: men and others who think in this demeaning way will, therefore, see women as products. We need to get people to expand his or her mind and STOP seeing women as objects. It's not prostitution that is the issue, it is people and how people think. Why should women bend to other people's beliefs and moral standing grounds to suit their needs when us women matter just as much? I'm not saying I would go out there and have sex for money, but this country was built on freedom and the right to happiness and if that's what makes certain women happy then I believe they are allowed to do whatever the hell they want.
Absolutely, I think prostitution is demeaning to women. I think women tend to use it as a complete last resort to make money. They feel they have failed at everything else and the only way to make a decent living is to literally sell themselves sexually to men willing to pay them.
