    ima have to disagree

    but i still agree to an extent

    a prostitute (save for certain extreme situations) is not a victim of anything but a defeatist attitude. Granted, that within the confines of the limits she may put on her own world, she has taken full advantage of the “tools” at her disposal* she has officially given up on any other possibilities.

    Seeking out these possibilities may be much more difficult, but that’s simply because someone in that degrading position may lack the confidence to believe its even possible. thus, its not a possibility.

    that being said, i applaud miss paglia for attempting to empower people who percieve they are powerless.

    * – I wanted to explore the use of “disposal” here and talk about what she’s throwing away.. but this comment is long enough as it is.

    That’s my 3 cents
