Men who pay for sexual access to prostituted women are rapists.
no thats literally the opposite of rape. women choose to prostitute themselves. hey have a pimp who procures clients for them while also offering them protection for a percentage of the…
It’s also a really weird way of phrasing it. “Men who pay a fee for a service with the agreement of the service provider are taking that service by force.” That’s… not at all how commerce works.
And there is no such thing as a prostituted woman. There are women who work as prostitutes. “Hello, my name is [Myname], and I’m a former assistant managered woman.” wut. Not only is that a cumbersome, awkward way of saying what I did for a living, it brings up a question - who “assistant managered” me in ‘06? Oh, wait. That would be me. I applied for, interviewed for, and accepted the job.
The vast majority of sex workers chose their jobs. Some may do so because they had few other options, but the same can be said for almost any job culturally held in low esteem. I doubt the person at the Whataburger register or the people who drive the garbage truck chose their jobs out of thousands of available options, but nobody tries to ban those jobs on the grounds that some of the workers only work there because they hate it less than they hate starving. There are, of course, a few people held in captivity and forced to have sex with other people, but they’re a small minority and a real but separate issue. Comparing them to willing workers is like comparing someone forced into agricultural work under threat to someone who runs his/her own small family farm. Many of the tasks are similar, but the situations are not similar at all (and badmouthing ‘farming’ and vilifying all customers of farmers completely misses the point - it’s not farming that’s the problem, it’s pressing people into specific jobs without their consent. This also goes for domestic workers, factory workers, sex workers, and everyone else.)
