The PC Police Make a Prostitution Bust....

The PC Police have made a bust overseas, England to be precise, where the term "prostitute" will be removed due to the "stigma attached to it". It's being replaced with "persons who sell sex persistently." No, this is not a joke..

UK to remove prostitute term

Britain is proposing to remove the term "prostitute" from the criminal statutes because it carries too much stigma.

Instead, a new bill that the Justice Ministry has drafted refers simply to persons who sell sex persistently - defined as twice or more in three months.

"We just wanted to remove the stigma of the label 'common prostitute'," said a spokeswoman for the Justice Ministry.

"It's been around since 1824, so it was a bit outdated. It just wasn't really helpful to label people."
