100% of the women I know have been molested, abused, or raped, and only 1 or 2 of them have ever reported it to authorities. None of them work in the
Sex Industry. A couple have very significant careers, a couple are housewives, a couple work regular jobs and have regular families.
(For the record, women often talk to me openly about sex, because I talk openly about it, and I am easy to approach and trustworthy. I hear things
that not a lot of people men get to hear.)
This is a testament to a couple of entirely different topics in my opinion.
#1. The current paradigm is NOT WORKING. Demonizing the sex trade, hiding sex from the public eye, not talking about it openly, repressing the
natural affinity for sex, while at the same time sexualizing everything in the media and entertainment industry is complete poison to our society.
#2. The definitions of sex abuse, molestation, and rape are somewhat skewed so that all women feel like they have been victimized, because the
definition is so broad, that by the generalized definition, they have been victimized, but in reality there were no lasting effects, and not real harm
The levels of abuse range from a family friend hugging them a little too long and being a little too handsy, to waking up at a friends house to
someone either touching them, or touching themselves. to step-dads demanding sex before they could use the car, to flat out violent rape at parties,
or by acquaintances. The stories are bold, and staggering, and unbelievable, and even more unbelievable that the police were never contacted in
almost all the cases.
BUT, none of these things have anything to do with legalizing prostitution, EXCEPT, maybe if prostitution was legal, and rape was illegal, then
perhaps these offenders would choose prostitution instead of rape.
