In Klinger’s concluding paragraph she states that these arguments are not just for women but, for all sex workers, male and female along with exotic dancers. Although many people oppose prostitution because they say it is degrading, morally wrong, and dangerous that is not the entire story some women choose it as a way of life not because they have to but because it is the lifestyle that suits them. Women who choose to be prostitutes should not be denied their rights as human beings. Altogether all prostitutes should have the same rights and be abele to live under the same health care and protection as others.
Women pick their profession for a means of living They each had a limited subject line, Dianne Post was against legalization of prostitution, and the effects it will have one a women and the stereotype name that comes with it. Dianne Post also stresses the dangers that are tagged with the profession violence, dangerous, unsafe. Bishakha Datta was for it she believe it’s the women choice and she should have the right to pick what she wants her profession to be. All over the world right now, there are women participating in what we here in America call prostitution. For some women it is a legal and without risk of penalty and for others the risk of their very freedom by partaking in the act.
Prostitution Prostitution is something that has been overlooked over time for minority groups. Many women struggle to survive in a society that takes away their identity. Women have turned to prostitution to create a stable living for themselves, even if they have to suffer through it. There are many people that typically misunderstand prostitution and there are hidden realities that need to be better known. Many women have turned to prostitution because of what they have gone through during their childhood years.
Prostitution should not be legalizing because it is one of the social immoral problems. This issue should be banned because it violates human rights, and the true equality of women. Prostitution, drug (including cocaine and cannabis), and pornography are headache problems within human society. Especially, prostitution against good human values. Most sociologists and philosophers confirm that when society is growing, people increasingly promote their good values.
In most cases, prostitution is not a conscious and calculated choice (MacKinnon). Most women who become prostitutes do so due to force or coercion by human trafficking or a pimp. When it is an independent decision, it is usually the result of extreme poverty and lack of opportunity, or other underlying problems such as drug addiction and past trauma, that drives women to choose prostitution to make ends meet (Farley 1998). MacKinnon (2009) argues that in prostitution, women have sex with men they would otherwise never have sex with. The money acts as a form of force, acting like physical force does in rape (MacKinnon 2009).
Even the feminists believe that women wear abayas by force and that those who wear it are abused and degraded, and so they push support at the unjust ban which violates basic freedom. The feminist doctrine calls for an equality and advocates freedom for women, freedom from societal stereotypes and archetypes, domesticized roles, and domineering impositions from social authorities which threaten the value of a woman. The Burqa Ban is a highly controversial topic, and the views vary to the extremes. Some people definitely argue that women are in fact being degraded through full body coverings which reduce the entity of a woman into something invisible or indistinguishable as a human. Also, they argue that most women are forced to wear coverings like the Burqa and niqab because of the Islamic Shariah law, which seems to be an oppressive and totalitarian tool of submission.
Legalizing prostitution expands it, which also helps pimps, fails to protect women, and leads to more back-alley violence,” (Bazelon E, 2008). Adding to the concept of functionalist theory, although it is a crime prostitution is still around because it has served many important functions for people in society and our society in general. like I have mentioned earlier, prostitution is a source of income for some women who would be jobless without this crime. Since it's not only women in this practice it gives a sexual alternative for men to participate in the deviant act who are hiding their sexuality; or men who are not sexually satisfied. Prostitution plays a role in lowering the divorce rate; since there are many married men are unfortunately unhappy with the sex life they have with their wives.
Self effacement, unconditional love and devoted service are demanded from women for the perpetuation of patriarchal norms. This results in an idealization of motherhood which confines women to their role as nurturers. Feminists from the West, recognise this vicious trap – that patriarchy elevates motherhood and misleads women is order to exploit and circumscribe them. Feminists maintain that motherhood as constructed by patriarchy is highly oppressive. It is far from being a liberatory and enriching experience for all women.
Ideologies of objectification and forced repression of sexuality conglomerate and monopolize women’s lives. Healthy sexual self- discovery is replaced by the adaptation of widely accessible representations(such as media portrayals) of women(Costa, Nogueira, Lopez 6). A woman, instead of being able to find her own sexuality and grow into her own womanly identity, may contrarily be forced to accept gender normativity and play into stereotypes because “according to society” these are women’s identities. Here is an account of one woma... ... middle of paper ... ...f our various life endeavors bring us closest to that fullness”( 54,55). The erotic is very much rooted in a strong understanding of self, fundamental to the self-worth that women of society, of every culture, so desperately need.
The stereotypical feminist is a bra burning, hairy, metrosexual lesbian, who believes men should only be used from breeding until we find a way to do it without them. However, this is simply a use of stereotyping that generalizes all women and makes it difficult for real conversation to occur. Whenever a generalization is presented as a truth then the individuality of all women is jeopardized. This is particularly the case, even today when the issue of rape is mentioned. Often the legal system of the United States make it difficult on the victim and in some cased place the blame on them for an unwanted sexual attack, to the point that the trauma of the trial is worse than the attack itself.
