Top Definition
A term created and used by neofeminists to infantilize sex workers. The idea being that no woman (nevermind men) would ever voluntary choose sex work, and any that would is psychologically damaged.

It implies that prostitution is something that happens to a person, not something a person does on their own.
There is no such thing as a prostitute, only prostituted women.

An alternative to calling trafficked women "prostitutes," which recognizes the humanity of the individuals concerned, and whose identities ought not to be conflated with what is, to many such women, an experience of ongoing serial rape, typically controlled by pimps.
"According to international studies cited by the Swedish Ministry of Industry, Employment, and Communications, between 65 and 90 per cent of prostituted women were sexually abused by male relatives or acquaintances as girls."

A woman who is exploited by the sex industry. Used in the place of prostitute or hooker because these imply the prostituted women (or less likely man) has agency in the situation when this is extremely rare. Used by anti sex trafficking activists. The word hooker also implies that men are hopelessly seduced or sucked in by prostituted women when really it is a choice to pay a pimp to rape a prostitute woman and degrade her intimately for his own satisfaction.
The prostituted woman was kidnapped from her homes in South East Asia under the threat of the death of herself and torture of her family. Sex trafficking is against international human right's laws and every human being's right to personal autonomy.
