Naming and deconstructing a problem on the societal level is not “shaming”.  It isn’t about your personal ’empowerment’ or any of the other neo-liberal drek that passes for so much of mainstream feminism these days.  So the example here is prostitution and no – I won’t call it ‘sex work’ or any other patriarchally approved euphemism for the female sex slave trade.

Prostitution is female slavery and is only around because men are unwilling to make the effort to regard women in our society as full human beings.  Cheery stuff, I know, but fixing the problem doesn’t happen until we recognize that there is a problem and begin to take steps to rectify it.
