New campaign perpetuates stigma
Yesterday while catching the bus I saw a new billboard campaign (see left) by PEERS Vancouver at the IMPARK parking lot on Richards and Robson streets. How are these images not degrading and dehumanizing?
Is this the image of sex workers this provincially funded agency promotes? Merchandise to be bought and sold with a Universal Pricing Code?
Prostitutes no matter how dire their personal circumstances might be don't sell themselves or rent their bodies, they perform a service, a sexual service.
These images are outrageously disrespectful and perpetuate harmful stigma.
