Discourse surrounding prostitutional propaganda online: an analysis

Pro-prostitution discourse has invaded the worldwide media. The objective is to mask the reality of sexual exploitation under an illusion of normalcy, even modernity: exploited persons become “sex workers,” prostitution becomes an emancipating “job” for women and a form of alternative consensual sexuality at the forefront of the 21st century! Thus, by surfing on liberal thought and populist rhetoric, this movement manages to spread lies as unassailable facts and to lock in the debate. It is a well-rehearsed propaganda that must be fought.
