Transcript of Copy of Legalized Prostitution and the commodification of women

The commodification of post-mortem privacy
Commodification:
To turn something into a comodity, somtimes at the expense of its intrinsic value
“When young men learn that females may be bought for a price, and the acts of sex command set prices, then how should they not also conclude that that may be bought may not also be taken without the civility of monetary exchange?...legalized prostitution institutionalizes the concept that it is the man’s monetary right, if not his divine right, to gain access to the female body, and that sex is a female service that should not be denied the civilized male.”
-Susan Brownmiller (American Philosipher)
