2195 words - 9 pages

Prostitution is the embodiment of all that is ugly, hurtful and represents the contempt males in this society have against women. Prostitution exists wherever male dominance has the ruling hand. Yes indeed times have changed for women, like in the aspect of having the right to vote but still to this day we, women are bombarded by society's distorted expectations on how we should look, feel and act. In living under male supremacy, one can feel the oppression clawing up our backs. Ready to suffocate women in to servitude and obedience. We can feel this oppression sharply whenever fear of the opposite sex action's penetrates our hearts or we feel threaten for example when encountered by a group of guys or a guy, instinct tells us to cross the street out of harms way. These encounters and sexual harassment are constant reminders that yes at times this is a man's world and we're on their "territory". We feel this weight of oppression as we are constantly forced to look over our shoulders for predators. Whether it be night, day or under the light bulbs soft, sheen in our homes, shadows wait lurking to demonstrate the full extent of their monstrous power, over us women. We are seen by this male dominated society as inferior, as prey. We see evidence of this contempt when we are forced to hear the melancholy tunes of broken songs that wail of savage violence, molestation, domestic abuse and rape. It is soothing music to the beast but sets a quiet, eerie storm ragging in our whip, welted surviving souls.Prostitution is the result of a capitalistic society where money and profit is viewed as more important than the humanity of an individual. It is the result of a patriarchy system that hurls out at women (from the time they were born) that they are worthless. That they are not seen for their ideas and capabilities but for their outer appearance. Little girls wishing to look like Barbie. Little girls who are taught that boys are stronger than girls in every way. Little girls brainwashed by culture that marriage is the only most important thing they could do and that they are incomplete without a male companion. Anorexia, bulimia symptoms required in order to be the perfect ideal woman. Little bodies priced ranged before they themselves can even think to put a price on their self-worth.Prostitution is the result of this and sadly more. As these girls get older they learn fast that when in the face of poverty and famine they have only one thing that capitalism and male aggression wants from them and that is there sexuality that can be sold as a commodity. Prostitution is not a choice but the full extent of enslaving the female. Not just her mentality this time but her body as well. Females are driven to prostitution in order to survive daily life. They are forced to exchange their sexuality for economic and social stability. Thanks to Mr.Clinton, who signed a law in 1996 that, changed how welfare functioned. The law put a time limit of five years which a...
