I'm just watching the Channel 4 news about Steve Wright being found guilty of the murder of the women in Ipswich.

A woman they interviewed said:

"Supporting prostitution is supporting violence and hatred of women. There is no place for it in a civilised society."

She was a former prostitute who left after being raped and beaten so badly she was in hospital and couldn't walk for days.

At the risk of sounding sanctimonious, i hope all those people who thought Billie Piper looked like she was having loads of fun in that TV show, and that prostitution is about consent, and not about sheer misogyny and power, feel sick with themselves.
