Lesson 11 Discussion
In order to protect the right of sex workers, I think prostitution should not be
criminalized, this is essential to rescind laws that criminalize prostitution and those which
make the buying of sex from consenting adults. In many countries across the globe different
aspects of sex work are treated as criminal deeds which means that sex workers cannot
depend on protection or assistance from the law enforcers. Most sex workers consider
reporting crimes committed during the line of their work as a risk, whereby these conducts
can be penalized on the ground of their engagement in sex work or even criminalized. Due to
this, prostitutes are often unable to look for a remedy for crimes they experience, hence
giving indemnity to the perpetrators. In addition to this, the criminalized and stigmatized
status that prostitutes go through provides police the scope to hound, coerce and commit
sexual and physical violence against them.
I also think prostitution should not be considered a crime due to the fact that
prostitution is voluntary and is explicitly a private issue in which the state should not look to
legislate. I think legalization does not trap people in prostitution and criminalization does not
assist them to get out of it. Society should choose whether to make life harder for the people
trapped in it or simply for individual to escape it. Besides, I think any individual selling sex
has the right to get any resources that would make them leave prostitution in a condition that
they can practically grow in and thrive.

Lesson 12 Discussion
It is evident that children break the law, believing they are typically invincible. Besides, they
get involved in underage vandalism, possession, drinking and influence of drugs, yet some
engage in bigger crimes like murder, rape and grand theft auto. While these juveniles are
frequently thought of as children making mistake, they are coherent and logical human beings
who know exactly what they are doing. Also, most people engage in criminal activities since
they believe they can get away with it, the same applies to children committing crime that is
they do it anticipating to get away with it. Hence, they should be answerable to their crimes.
Crimes committed by children are not a reflection of their upbringing, it is only the way a
person views right from wrong.
