Sex and the Super Bowl

This Time magazine piece regurgitates press releases from religious anti-prostitution activists and, in so doing, advances their favored themes, such as the conflation of adult and child prostitution and of adult prostitution with human trafficking.

The Honest Courtesan provides a thorough take-down of the entire genre.

Oddly, the Time reporter gets paid for doing what amounts to a junior high essay in its heavy borrowing from sources, lack of familiarity with the subject area and general lack of critical thinking, while the Honest Courtesan writes her blog for free. Could this have anything to do with Time's declining circulation?
