Other than on soaps, do people really care if someone has resorted to prostitution to pay the bills or just for the thrill of it? I'm sure Daniel will erupt in rage once he learns his son's mom was a hooker but it's a ridiculous reaction. Maybe it's a generational or regional stigma nowadays. I don't know. I guess I couldn't care less if someone had or is hooking. As such, Kate using Jennifer to expose Chloe's secret past seems so immature and antiquated to me. The fact that Kate is being so hypocritical about this sort of slut shaming is almost beyond the pale and I say this as someone who loves the character of Kate.
Well, it's not prostitution, but there was just an article this week about a middle school teacher in a small town in California whose students found out she'd made some porn films a few years ago. She said she resorted to it after her boyfriend broke up with her and she had no money. She regretted it and tried to hide it, but of course, the films are on the internet. The school fired her, saying she would be a disruptive element at the school. (Someone had already marred her classroom door with vulgar graffiti.)

As far as I know, prostitution is illegal in most states (except Nevada). As for me, I tend to have more sympathy for the girls and women who get drawn into it than for the people who exploit them and profit from it.

Unfortunately, the show seems to be taking it's usual shallow, knee-jerk take on a painful subject instead of giving us the real drama that is embedded therein.
