This is Not a Debate

Rebecca Mott

To believe in abolition of the sex trade as an exited prostituted woman, is to know there is no space or time for an intellectual debate on prostitution.

Debates belong to events and subjects that are stable, where there is safety for all those involved.

Debates can be had on abstract philosophical ideas, debates can had on history that is resolved or not relevant to daily existence.

Debates can just be to show off or win points.

But debates are not appropriate when there is a genocide, when there is wide-spread torture and when the prostituted are being made sub-human.

It is a trick of the sex trade lobby to pretend that we can debate the existence of prostitution.

The sex trade lobby can debate for to them it is a game, to them it has no human impact, for the prostituted are stripped of the right to be human.
