Re: How Would Prostitution Work Under Communism?
Why would it? Sexual exploitation is a patriarchal phenomenon. This pseudo-woke take that women are "free" under capitalism-imperialism-patriarchy is bullshit.
So getting paid to do the most pleasurable thing in existence is exploitation? And it needs to exist because a lot of guys are incels and they should be treated equally under communism should they not?
Sex does not need to be a commodity for it to be enjoyed. In fact, it's best enjoyed by all parties when all parties consent.
Sex is still consent even if someone takes money for it, as long as it's voluntary
The only people who can get sex for free are rich anyway
This is liberalism. The fetishization of the notion of "free choice" fails to account for the diverse and numerous factors that lead to making a choice. A poor single woman who needs to feed her kids. Technically she chooses to engage in prostitution, but for anyone capable of digging a little deeper can see that this choice is a fraud.
I went to a private high-school. After graduation many people got huge cash gifts from their parents. They often paid each other for sex with that money. Everyone involved already came from wealth and yet they still choose to take that money. It became a big scandal where i lived and the police made arrests but never pressed charges.
Are you willing to tell me this is exploitation? When it's literally the bourgeois throwing money around at each other?
Yes, because sexual bodies should not be treated like commodities.
Why not? Providing one is willing to sell it, who are you to tell them otherwise?
See the earlier responses. We communists don't fetishize the fraudulent notion of free choice.
So is freedom not a good concept to communists? Do communists claim to support freedom?
I thought communism is suppose to represent everyone? As a bourgeois incel who was willing to be open minded you're not giving a very good reason for me to support the idea
So you don't want the people who will actually hold power in the future to support your ideal? I'm probably taking over my dads investment banking firm, but of course it would be more valuable to your cause is some broke worker supported communism i assume.
This isn't an insult to poor people, but is it not irrational to drive away people like me?
