Blog discussion 4 Prostitution
This blog discussion is based on chapter 31 of the book Seeing Ourselves, the article PROSTITUTION: A WORLDWIDE BUSINESS OF SEXUAL EXPLOITATION by MELISSA FARLEY.
Answer and discuss the following questions:
Many people believe that prostitution is a free choice. Farley argues that this belief is false. Why? What is your view of this issue? How does prostitution reflect the intersection of race, sex and class oppression? In terms of the legal and status of prostitution, how do decriminalization and legalization differ? Why is Farley opposed to both? Do you agree or disagree with her position?
The students who are assigned to answer these questions are asked to do an original posts and comment on the posts of another student. Other students may comment on these posts. The instructions for these discussions are found on the class Moodle site.
