Prostitution gender

Although much of the language in Shannon’s article is carefully gender neutral, the opening paragraph defines prostitution with reference to women only.1 Men working in the sex trade are also victims of assault and murder. The closeting of this aspect of the sex trade along with other elements of gender stereotyping impedes our ability to recognize patterns of nonconsensual violence or sex in men.
