Blameless brief-carnal-liaison co-ordinators

Screen Shot 2015-05-25 at 23.02.47That’s pimps to you and me.

A few years ago, prostitutes disappeared from medical journals; they returned as ‘sex workers’. Nor did they work in prostitution any more: they were employees in the ‘sex industry’. If prostitution really is a trade like any other, why should people who receive state benefits not be coerced into prostitution under threat of losing their benefits? The attempt to remake our moral universe by a change of terminology stands revealed as shallow moral exhibitionism: Look at me, see how unfettered by convention, how empathic towards the downtrodden, I am. I think for myself, unlike all those people of the past two millennia, and I don’t accept the burden of the so-called wisdom of the past.
