I think there are gangs that engage in trafficking in persons. NO, I
have never met or talked to any. He has never personally met or
spoken with God ... and yet believe in their existence.
Yes, there are women and men who exercise their right to choose a
trade, as reflected in the SPANISH CONSTITUTION in the following
our choice is to exercise prostitution as a trade enables us to meet
in sheep's clothing
During the past few
months, I initiated a study relating to sex work, for which I decided
to do some research on the web about it. For days I read, I wrote and
reviewed hundreds of articles, interviews, press releases and studies
related to prostitution and its origins, and because he was doing a
research paper for editing own study on the subject, my eyes were
fixed in sentence, which made me change the course of my study.
Under the subtitle of wolves in sheep. I leave you to read this
"report" as well as web links to the original of each
statement reproduced here.
start argumentative APRAMP and contradictions.
-. "New generations of women are
becoming more aware of their bodies and their right to a satisfactory
sexuality. But very few would call a phone contact to request a
service. When you are forced to pay for sex, in any case choose
someone around or a partner already known in advance and they are
willing to be generous. "
-. It is understandable that
women turn to prostitution as the only source of income and have no
chance of being recycled resist this kind of industrial
-. From time to time arise testimony called
luxury prostitutes who claim to have chosen prostitution to gain
independence and get rid of bosses or working conditions intolerable.
However, under this apparent choice other more realistic emerge: the
need to make money fast to settle in another activity or effort to
provide education to pay and their children. Not to also address some
of these choices are based on emotional dependence on one of its
promoters or apparent to the world of economic welfare in which they
-. Sex tourism is another loophole in which some
Westerners find refuge in general men but also women, to have easy
sex, leaving a trail of money or favors in its path. Practice is
ambivalent in some cases it may be a mild version of prostitution, as
it can be a real attraction and often without intermediaries, even if
economic objectives through. "
to use an abolitionist speech, recrimination and in total violation
of human and constitutional rights of sex workers also ignores the
equality between men and women. According APRAMP speech, all women in
prostitution are victims of trafficking. However, in the above
mentioned and Guidelines as well as other reports and interviews
designed by the spokesman of the association. Dejan confirmation
foreseeing that if prostitution is possible of free choice.
grandmother used to say, choose very well for you before deciding to
I am a person of rationing, but I can
not understand the duality of vision from APRAMP. Or is believed or
not believed, it supports or criticizes, punishes or praise, but the
two things at once as it is not the most correct. If you say that
there is evidence on the freedom of choice by sex workers can not
immediately afterwards, devalue the word of those people.
As a woman is free to say NO, it must also be free to say yes,
without necessarily any less a woman, or ignored their choice. If you
say that "the need to make money fast to settle in another
activity or effort to provide education to pay for their children."
Just as the choice attribute of prostitution "emotional
dependence on one of its promoters or to the apparent world economic
welfare in which they move. "Reaching even to acknowledge that"
in some cases it may be a mild version of prostitution, as it can be
a real attraction and often without intermediaries, even if economic
goals involved. "
each of the above statements emphasizes the free choice of
prostitution as a profession. And are not my words.
Another thing that struck me was the insistence on using offensive
and derogatory terms towards sex workers. Consider:
is understandable that women engaged in prostitution as the only
source of income and have no chance of being recycled."
As far as I know we are people, we can operate to change the
physical, we can change the house to a better city we can change, for
better conditions. But Recycle? No, they do nothing. As much as I
roll the world only the objects can be recycled. They have a speech
in which they attack right and left, without measuring, look at or
review what they argue, ignoring the fact that it is relatively
well-paying jobs and especially that they are adult choices. He
refuses to be a free choice, attributing systematically "cheating",
"external pressure" and "bad example" in
violation not only some of the articles of the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION
OF HUMAN RIGHTS and as such I mentioned earlier, the address this
association also goes against the statements in SPANISH CONSTITUTION.
"If we could summarize in one sentence the content of the
Universal Declaration of Human Rights recognized in 1948, we have to
focus on the right of everyone" without distinction of race,
color, sex, language, religion, political opinion or any other
opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status
"(Art. 2) to be treated as such. and to be treated as a person
is considered synonymous with being" endowed with reason and
conscience "(Art. 1), ie, recognizing their right to become a
valid interlocutor. "-Dolores Juliano1.
"No patronizing or assistance proposal can override this basic
right. Respect for other human beings as rational means considered
and mature, as we consider ourselves, and to develop attitudes
towards them open to dialogue and solidarity, taking into account
that, as proposed by Touraine: "Solidarity is the opposite of
assistance , which remains in a state of dependency and weakens the
capacity to act. it rests on the recognition of the right of each and
every one to act according to their values and projects "(196)
(Touraine, 1997) 2.

taken into account in the abolitionist campaigns that ignore the
economic factors that lead women into sex work, and read the whole
process as an external imposition that must be saved to the
protagonists. In this campaign to save women anything goes. The
manipulation of statistical data to match the numbers of illegal

There are things that are not
free to do or not paying, because they are crime, or because harm
others (steal, kill, cheat, discriminate). Anything that can be
legitimately free (care work, leisure or sexual activity, for
example) can also be made by charging for them. The fact of charging
for something does not go up or down the scale of moral dignity. And
of course, what makes a person worthy is its handling of moral
values, truthfulness, respect for others, not what you do with your
Respect for human rights is treated in a
nondiscriminatory manner, and to recognize their status as other

on their behalf. "
