Lady Marmalade Wheres all mah soul sistas Lemme hear yall flow sistas Lady Marmalade seems like a song of four women proudly calling out to each other to praise their feminine capability of dominance and independence in society The actual verses of this song reflect the combined attitudes of four prostitutes in Moulin Rouge They are vocally expressing their proud choice of prostitution through a fictional character Lady Marmalade and her experience This mainstream song has become a sensation on the airwaves How can prostitution be such a favorable subject to sing about The singers rave about Lady Marmalades experience as a prostitute and the power she has acquired by being one But is prostitution morally ethical I argue that it is not By contrasting Lady Marmalades opinion of prostitution to my personal ethic I will pinpoint the negatives of prostitution and why it is unethical A good starting point would be to define prostitution Prostitution typically refers to a wide variety of sex-for-payment arrangements Prostitutes range from the stereotypical street prostitute with of without a pimp to upscale call girl who operates out of her home or through an escort service Peterson-Iyer459 Lady Marmalade is struttin her stuff on the street when she says to a prospective client Hello hey Jo you wanna give it a go This verse is symbolic of her ability to choose who she wants Prostitutes support their position by claiming that they are making a personal choice an independent choice We independent women some mistake us for whores Im sayin why spend mine when I can spend yours Choice is a critical aspect of humanity Choice does not equal independence A slave may be given the choice to work in the house or out in the field and they may choose whichever one is favorable to them but they are still under the possession of their owner rendering them powerless Prostitutes
