The Ethics and Integrity Ministry of Uganda announced this week that, in order to fight prostitution (a trade described as “booming” along the Uganda-Sudan border), the government is going to shame sex workers by publishing their names in the newspaper, on TV, and on the Internet. Ethics and Integrity Minister James Nsaba Buturo (pictured) was quoted as saying:
“(Prostitution) is not only destroying homes, it is blighting the future of young people and becoming a major facilitator of serious infections such as HIV and AIDS.“
And you know how hookers REALLY LOVE hooking. And their Johns are so good to them, buying them expensive stuff on Rodeo Drive like Richard Gere did in Pretty Woman. It’s not that prostitutes can’t do other jobs, either, it’s just that suckin’ old ugly cock for a living is so DAMN FUN. And the very serious threat of contracting HIV/AIDS while fuckin’ for money makes it SO COOL and THRILL-SEEKY. So the only way to shut prostitutes down is to make them feel BAAAAAAAAAAD about what they’re doing because they like it WAAAAAAAAY TOO MUCH.
The Ugandan government is also contemplating outlawing the miniskirt, aka Whore Gear, because, as Minister Buturo puts it:
“The mini-skirt can cause an accident when you are sitting with a woman in a car. Men while driving gaze out when they see these women and this causes accidents,” he said.
And, as we all know, those men driving those cars while checking out those prostitutes in those miniskirts have NO CONTROL over their actions whatsoever!
Yes, yes. Name, shame, and blame the hookers! Because, as our friend who works in Uganda advocating for women’s rights told us today, “Prostitutes just aren’t stigmatized enough, right?”
