Of course it's okay. . . but don't call them ignorant gutter sluts! :)3
Nope, and I'm gonna have to write you a court summons for conspiracy to commit slur2
Use whatever word you want. Both are correct, if used to refer to a woman who has sex in exchange for money.1
It's fine but feminists will likely take offense and call you out for it.1
Yeah its not called a whore house or whore island for no reason xD1
Proper term is "sex worker"1
Would you call a policeman a pig?1
I call them that to, who cares.0
if its in context then its fine0
A whore is someone who just has lots of sex
A prostitute is just someone who has sex for money
So, yes, technically you can but, why should you? They're just doing a job0
Of course you can. Its not like it is wrong. I suppose there are more polite words or words that are more suited for various social circles though. I would for example never write whores in a thesis for my university or in a formal event.
I suppose reality is that while it isn't wrong there will near always be a word that is More suitable.
Their called Callgirls when their alive -Archer1
