Sex workers are one of the most marginalized groups in the world.   Share:  
Thrust of argument: Chris Hedges writes 'Salil Shetty, secretary-general of Amnesty International, said: 'Sex workers are one of the most marginalized groups in the world who in most instances face constant risk of discrimination, violence and abuse. Our global movement paved the way for adopting a policy for the protection of the human rights of sex workers which will help shape Amnesty International's future work on this important issue.'

In the sickness of modern culture, the ability to exploit with impunity is distorted into a human right even by a renowned and respected humanitarian organization. That is quite a card trick. We live in a global culture where the wretched of the earth are chattel and where sexual slavery - which is what most prostituted women and girls around the globe endure - is sanctified by market forces. These women and girls are among our most vulnerable. After being crushed by poverty, racism and sexism, they are unable to find other ways to make a sustainable income. They are treated little better than livestock transported to markets for consumption. That a so-called human rights organization parrots vile justifications is emblematic of the depth of our moral degeneration and the triumph of misogyny.

Women and girls who are prostituted should be treated not as criminals but as victims. The criminals are the johns and the pimps and traffickers who profit from the sale of human flesh. Decriminalizing prostitution, which allows these modern slave masters to openly ply their trade, means the exploitation will grow explosively. We must work to create a world where those who are dispossessed of their human rights are not forced into this dilemma. We must not accept a world where poverty destroys the lives of the weak and the vulnerable, including children. Those who profit from prostituting women and girls must be driven out of business'.
Direction of resistance / implied resistance: Chris preaches a direct action against prostitution from the outside, from the laws and the social framework.

Removal of resistance: The impact on the culture of hypersexualisation in the western media is felt across the globe. Unification: This huge cultural flaw in western societies needs to be studied far more honestly than it is by most people at present.
