Response to seabeyond (Reply #32)

33. Maybe I'm reading you wrong...

but I don't consider every woman who becomes a prostitute to be a victim.

I'm of the opinion that some very much do it out of choice, and not necessity. And may even manage to somehow enjoy it (when you can exercise some control over which clients you take, that probably makes a huge difference).

As I said to mzteris above, it's very possible that no woman would choose to be a prostitute if given equal opportunities, if not conditioned to place so much importance on desirability and sexuality, etc. etc. We'll never know unless and until we smash the patriarchy.
