And what about the women who prostitute themselves for a living b/c they have no other job skills and it's the only way they can survive? What about the ones that have been forced into lives like that? Does that mean their lives must carry those negative connotations as well? Frankly, if she wants to do this, which I doubt it's actually going to happen, simply b/c as someone else already pointed out, Montel and Oprah will probably cover her and her sister's tuition now, chances are the auction will go through, the money will either go to charity or cover the other costs involved in college, books, food, housing, computer, and they'll follow her and the winning bidder around on a date, let them go off into a room, then after a few hours or the night, they'll come out and say they got along great and so decided to wait, but are dating now, then in a few weeks when the media doesn't care anymore, they can stop pretending they are dating. Because let's face it, it's sad that this is a length they feel they need to go to for higher education. But what's really sad is the number of jackasses and idiots lining up to pay to sleep with a virgin girl.
And good luck selling urself Lee, if you make enough, you should donate a little extra to AF so we can give away a prize of some sort.
I didn't mean my statement as an insult. I do think that if you're selling your body for sex, you're a whore, and thus you will carry all those negative connotations with it.
You're right, some people have been forced into doing it, but I also think it's an easy way out for people who have talked themselves into believe that they really can't do anything else.
If you're willing to sell yourself for sex, then you should be willing to carry the burden that comes along with the words "whore" and "prostitute". And if you're fine with that, then good for you. If you take offense, you most likely shouldn't be doing it.
