So I am now reading that France banned prostitution in December 2013. Not surprisingly the ban was lead by high moral left-wingers who claim that prostitution is increasing human trafficking and that most or all of human trafficking victims end up in prostitution or sex related crimes. The fact however is that its not true, most victims of human trafficking end up doing other things then doing forced sex work, some due, most don’t. This myth that most human trafficking victims end up as sex trafficking victims is so bad that it can even be found in U.N reports on the matter. Many claims about human trafficking are myths that are made up for other political agenda, that is often not so nice in the long run. New Statesman has a nice article of it here. Articles like this one here are however based on political agenda and propaganda, they are creating a picture that is not there and telling news that are not based on reality.
I am sure there is a lot wrong with legal prostitution and many things can go better in it. Crimes do happen, they even happen in with parliaments, even with senators in all the countries that are now trying or have banned prostitution in past few years. Instead they deal with the criminals, they just don’t outright ban whatever the field the criminal activity takes place in. Yet, that is what they are doing with prostitution, they are banning it on the basis that criminal activity takes place in it. The people calling for banning of prostitution are using obscured circular reasoning to justify this action.
In the country where this ban against prostitution took place, something bad has happened. Not just the prostitutes that where criminalized in Sweden more then decade ago. In Sweden, the top country for extreme feminist is facing a problem of violence against women and that situation is not improving, since in the end political agenda does not care about its victims. That is what happened in Sweden, extreme feminist in Sweden with political agenda and its victims are the women it is supposed to be protecting. The problem with violence against women in Sweden is so bad that it has been noticed international levels [can be read about here and here].
In France they have just banned prostitution, all that they have done is to create a lot of new criminals and allow new gangs and human traffickers to operate within its borders. Nothing is going to get solved by this change in law in France, all that it has done is to make thing works. The ban in France and other countries is also about one other thing, that is not connected to this issue directly, yet it is, the sexual oppression of women, men are also being oppressed sexually, but not in this way as women. It is popular among feminist to blame this oppression on men, while the fact is that is only partly true. Most of this oppression comes from other women how are controlling other women sexuality by placing them self on high moral ground then other women, this is mostly used for political gain in society as control over the women population. This is also is applied to men today, but in more negative sense, that all men are “rapists” as is claimed by the most extreme feminists out there [see examples of this clam can be found here].
This moral high ground is also the reason why they are trying to ban porn, using the same dirty tricks as with prostitution. But that is a other article that is going to be written later.
If I offend anyone. Then I am so not sorry for that.
