Myth vs. Reality

by abolitionist77

Myth: women choose into prostitution. Reality: it’s RARELY a choice.

Women do not want to be prostituted. Instead they experience traumatic force/violence, pervasive fraud/lies, and terrifying coercion/manipulation and that amounts to sex trafficking by the legal definition.

@ExodusCry tweeted a quote from Melissa Farley’s research that “81% of the women in the Nevada legal brothels reported they wanted to escape prostitution regardless of its legal status. They said it is all (legal/illegal) emotionally the same.” – Melissa Farley #notajob #sexualexploitation #bansexbuying

This statistic mirrors research done in the Chicagoland area around 2013 showing 85% of the prostituted women surveyed wanted out.

Stop demand. End trafficking.
