Brazil Takes Down 'Happy Prostitute' Anti-AIDS Campaign, Hates Happy Prostitutes!

If you're a prostitute, you might as well be happy doing it, right?

According to Brazil's health ministry, which has removed a website proclaiming "I am happy being a prostitute" — NOPE!

The message was good, too: if you can't do away with prostitution, you might as well try and reduce the AIDS-related stigma suffered by prostitutes in an effort to encourage them to get treated for sexually-transmitted infections.

Critics slammed it for promoting prostitution — obvs they couldn't see the big picture!

Of course, if this was negatively affecting the fight against child prostitution, we'd never condone it. The thing is, though, Brazil has seen a boom in sex tourism in recent years, and they need to do something to fight the downsides of that as far as STIs go. They'll be keeping the current campaign called "Not ashamed of using a condom," but will remove references to the "happy prostitute."

Did we mention that prostitution is legal there? The city of Belo Horizonte even has an Association of Prostitutes!

Whatever your stance is, the goal is to keep people safe. You just gotta figure out if the benefits outweigh the rest!
