Prostitution regulation confronts prostitutes and radical feminists
Bill faces the most conservative Congress in the history of Brazil and the opposition of a group of women to the legalization of brothels

The coming of the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro heated up the debate about prostitution and opened a clash between prostitutes, academics and feminists. At issue is the regulation of the profession in a country where prostitution is legal, and recognized since 2002 by the Ministry of Labor. But where the thousands of brothels, nightclubs and clubs throughout Brazil configure ruffianism crime (sexual exploitation of another for profit) punishable by up to four years in prison.
The Brazilian Network of Prostitutes and the Sex Workers' Unique Central opened the discussion to speed up the approval of a bill that opens a window to the regulation of the job. Is the Gabriela Leite - in honor of the main prostitutes' rights activist - which in five articles proposes some rules to regulate one of the most stigmatized professions in the world.
The bill includes an amendment to the Criminal Code where prostitution and sexual exploitation appear almost necessarily associated. The text specifies that should only be considered sexual exploitation the coercion to prostitution or prostitution exercised by persons under 18 years - which is already a crime -, not paying for sexual services and the appropriation of more than 50% by another one of sexual service. The bill also legalizes brothels whenever them not exert sexual exploitation and it includes the retirement of sex workers after 25 years.
The bill, dated 2003, was rescued in 2012 by the deputy of the PSOL (Socialism and Liberty Party) Jean Wyllys and it was discussed with the prostitutes. It has little chance of being approved in the more conservative Congress in the history of Brazil, but feminist militants, who claim that the debate on prostitution belongs to all women, they started their own battle against the text because they considered it the "legalization of pimping".
"The regulation legitimizes the commodification of the female body. The bill sticks to take from illegality the prostitution houses and the exploiters, and it places Brazil as a hub of sexual exploitation of women. The project is weak and its speech is of pimping, no of the exploited woman", laments Maria Gabriela Saldanha, writer, feminist activist and iron detractor of the bill. "There is no one country where regulation has worked. We need to stick to public policies to accommodate women who wish to quit or to prevent them from entering into prostitution", adds Saldanha. "It would be more honest to make a big public debate and think about these policies", she adds.
Wyllys criticizes this view. For him, a feminist sector ended up lining itself up the most conservative benches of Congress. The deputy believes that the current ban on brothels does not stop them to continue working, "just as the criminalization of marijuana does not prevent it continues to be sold", and he claims that in the houses of prostitution, "that work because they pay bribes to the authorities", prostitutes and gigoloes have no rights, "they become unprotected and subject to all sorts of abuses, besides they have no supervision".

The five articles of Bill Gabriela Leite are objectively insufficient to regulate such a complex profession as prostitution - to get an idea, the bill which regulates domestic work consists of 46 articles -, but for its supporters, it's a first step to frame business within the law. "This is about to regulate something that already exists, to end the police extortion, among other things. With the law, it will be opened a window for new labor contracts of sex workers with clubs, it will empower prostitutes", argues Indianara Siqueira, transsexual, prostitute and militant.
Tatiane Satin, 21, was prostitute and she became one of the voices against any regulation of the job. Raised in the Landless Movement, garbage woman, and with a routine of looking for food in garbage dumps to survive, she began to prostitute to 17 years. She lost count of how many men touched her body, she says, but every time she felt raped. Her experience, she says, was a nightmare and she criticizes the "romanticizing" of the craft. "For me, prostitution is a paid rape. In four years, I have never met a woman with a happy story in prostitution. The Bill of Pimping does not give any right, and it turns the pimps in big businessmen", she said during a debate held in Rio one month ago.
The debate, which reached high levels of confrontation in social networks, can be in vain if approved the reform of the Criminal Code which is being processed in the Senate. Among the proposed changes in more than 400 pages covering from electoral crimes to traffic crimes, is the possibility to fit prostitution into another legal vacuum. If approved as it is now, the new Code does not regulate the profession, but it would decriminalize pimping and brothels.
While the projects stop in the tables of deputies and senators, in the absence of legislation - as has happened with gay marriage or abortion in cases of anencephaly - the Judiciary ends up dictating the rules. The courts already have recognized in 2013 the employment relationship between a prostitute and a club in Piracicaba, São Paulo, and forced the establishment to compensate with R$ 100,000 the son of the woman, victim of a labour accident. The prostitute became quadriplegic after a fall while working and she died at 25 years old, during the process. In another example, this year the Supreme Court itself has recognized the legal protection of prostitutes and the possibility of them to charge in court debts derived from their services.
In other countries, the voices are divided between abolitionists - who consider prostitutes victims without freedom of choice - and pro-regulation - for whom sex work is an activity that can be exercised freely and it should be legalized. In Sweden, for example, who pays for sex is a criminal, a model that inspired other countries such as France, Iceland, Canada, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea and Northern Ireland. In the Netherlands, Denmark and Germany, on the other hand, female sex workers pay taxes and they get social counterparts.

I even sent some compliments to the execrable fagot Jean Wyllys on his Facebook profile for this bill. And you see what a dismaying thing, the only good bill of him, his leftist companions thump a cudgel down on him.
If "we need to stick to public policies to accommodate women who wish to quit or to prevent them from entering into prostitution" and "it would be more honest to make a big public debate and think about these policies", Maria Gabriela Saldanha, why you did not mention that Amnesty International advocates the decriminalization of sex work exactly to protect sex workers? And when had you mentioned cases of sex workers victims of murder or assault? If "there is no one country where regulation has worked", where the Nordic Model, in which the client is criminalized and the prostitute not, was effective to reduce the trafficking of women or violence against prostitutes? Would it be the lowering of prostitution enough by itself as a success measure? Deputy Jean Wyllys said that "a feminist sector ended up lining itself up the most conservative benches of Congress". Does he mean that a feminist woman joins the enemies against another woman? Interesting!
But you were able to understand, through this article, who was Gabriela Leite, who, by the way, died in 2013? In the hyperlink to the bill that is in the text, you can see a little more about her. Even a book telling stories of work, she has written ("Filha, mãe, avó e puta" - Daughter, mother, grandmother and whore -, 2009). And in this article, her name appears only because it is the name of the bill. Well, the article showed a prostitute in favor of legalization of prostitution: a transsexual. But who has the name and authority to give opinion about prostitution is the "writer, feminist activist and iron detractor of the bill" Maria Gabriela Saldanha and a certain Tatiane Satin, "21, was prostitute and she became one of the voices against any regulation of the job". Because they are part of, as we saw in the lead, "a group of women".
