No brothel to Olympics 2010 in Vancouver
11 Dec 2007
The mayor of Vancouver, some persons and groups favorable to the decriminalization of prostitution, pimps and johns, the New Democratic Party’s deputy and some other neoliberals support a project to create a brothel, legal and administered by women in prostitution, for the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver.
It seems that British Columbia’s most vulnerable women in prostitution, that is the aboriginal women, were not consulted on this project which tries to force the hand of the federal government to obtain what was not up to here obtainable otherwise : the total decriminalization of prostitution. Some invoke the usual excuse of prostituted persons’ safety to justify this project, but nobody is dupe : it is a question of institutionalizing the merchandizing of human beings for the financial interests of certain groups and persons, in spite of the fact that prostitution entails invariably the trafficking of human beings, in particular of women and children. Such a project is against the objectives of feminism because it supports the subjection of a class of women to men-prostitutors, pimps and traffickers of all kinds.
