Some of the outrageous positions the Swedish Government holds are:
"...it's totally strange to think about harm reduction because that would be accepting prostitution and that would be as crazy as accepting rape."
When asked about what plans there were for social measures to improve the conditions for sex workers Sweden's chancellor of justice Anna Scarhead stated:
Scarhead: "We don't work with harm reduction in Sweden...because that's not the way Sweden looks at this. We look upon it that this is a BAN on prostitution. There should be no prostitution and what we work with is to try and MAKE people who do this...not do it anymore."
This is backed up by most out reach centers offering only counseling and encouragement to get out of prostitution. Most sex workers that refuse are denied access to condoms as well as advice on health and safety. One Radical Feminist on youtube made her position on this clear when she left this comment:
"Giving out condoms only promotes prostitution. As the Swedish Chancellor of Justice said, the purpose is not harm reduction but to make people stop. And any harms to prostitutes will help encourage them to stop aiding and abetting the patriarchy.
The target isn't the wimmin. The target is MEN and the patriarchy they impose on disadvantaged wimmin. What's needed in Sweden and everywhere is putting men in JAIL long-term for turning wimmin's bodies to consumer commodities"
So Sweden claims the moral high ground by not officially punishing prostitutes because they claim they see them as victims but what of the sex workers who are NOT victims? By denying them access to condoms they not only put these sex workers at a higher risk for STI's but their clients as well. In turn these clients could go home and infect their spouses. If a husband infects his wife with HIV/AIDS; for instance, and that woman gets pregnant before either of them know they have it...what of that child?
HOW MANY PEOPLE IS SWEDEN WILLING TO MAKE SUFFER JUST TO PUNISH A CERTAIN TYPE OF WOMAN FOR HER CHOICES?
This to me seems a barbaric way to run a Government.
I have heard so many Radical Feminists go on and on about how the Swedish Model Report (put out by the bias Swedish Government) was supposedly a "success." Given how openly they declare their complete disregard for the safety and opinions of sex workers who choose the work freely, I have to ask:
-What does this "success" mean?
-Successful for WHO?
-And successful at what cost?
If it doesn't make you wonder...you are not thinking.
