    “Marv, do you have to talk about the Red Light District?” “I know it’s not tasteful, but it seemed the only way we could touch each other after combat was by sharing the same woman. During high school, the races mingled through rock and roll. During the war, we socialized through women of the night.” Mom rubbed the blanket covering my dad’s thigh and looked at the ceiling fan. The shadow of the fan’s blades must have become a stranger’s hand touching Vietnamese girls because my mother said, “If it wasn’t for the grace of God, I could have been one of those girls. In many countries, the nightlife is the only way women have of surviving.” I agreed with mom. In places ruled by guns and bullets, life and death came and went, but hunger and thirst…

    about her words, ‘Out of respect….’ Those words summed up the truth of her beliefs. The effort of thinking made me drowsy during my drive home. I wondered who will carry on her traditions when I’m gone. Who will bury me if I don’t marry? When I arrived home, I was beginning to think it was imperative that I find a wife. I wanted to marry soon because I wanted children. I wanted my aunt to teach my children. Maybe I was like my father. He hid behind his behind alcohol and music. His feeling of…

    Born Into Brothels Reflection This documentary about the red light district really opened my eyes, and helped me learn about the hardships some kids were facing in parts of our world that I knew very little about. I noticed three main things about the lifestyle and personalities of the children. First, they had nothing: no love, no care, and no one to support them. Even so, they seemed full of joy, never complained, and persisted on with life. After meeting Zana, their lives had changed so…

    give tone, and the author’s word choice is exceedingly important regarding any connotations to the subject. Garcia Marquez takes a brothel; a place normally associated with dirty, degrading activities and glorifies it through the use of language. At Cervantes’ brothel, there are musicians who plan in an “enormous courtyard for dancing lit by lantern gourds bought in the Chinese bazaars of Paramaribo.” (Page 64) The atmosphere created by these words quite serene, the dancing in the courtyard…

    nineteen-fifteen. Before the criminalization of prostitution, prostitutes were shielded and exploited by the madams of the brothels they worked in. Madams were not violent in the way they exploited them but rather messed with the economic aspects of the job. The organized brothels gave a facade that there were more women involved with prostitution but there was not because during the progressive era there were more jobs than the nineteenth century. Rosen argues the red-light districts were…

    Just look at Europe as an example, they have what is known as a red light district where it is legal to advertise for sex in windows. A whole street is dedicated for prostitutes legally if you are of age. More sex trafficking is done in other countries.
