Feminism and prostitution have something in common. Prostitutes apparently were feminists before our intellectual bunch decided that it was a good thing. Prostitutes controlled their sexuality and had men pay big bucks for it and they did. Today we are trying to curtail these women’s activities. And isn’t it the use of our sexuality that separates women – those who give it away for the security of one man and those who give it away to control it themselves. In fact according to this article prostitutes made by far more money that most women and they were quite independent and didn’t need “a” man
Prostitutes were especially successful in the wild, lawless, thoroughly renegade boomtowns of the West. When women were barred from most jobs and wives had no legal right to own property, madams in the West owned large tracts of land and prized real estate.
Interesting article however, take a read.
