In a puff piece about Sheila Jeffreys' new book here , Bindel cheerfully accepts Jeffreys' claim that heterosexual marriage is closely related to prostitution. She also uncritically accepts Jeffreys' claim that 5% of the Netherlands' GDP is prostitution-related; if you read further, it is clear that Jeffreys regards any economic activity in which prostitution has any role as totally implicated. Thus, taxi-drivers, and presumably other forms of transport, move prostitutes and punters around and are so profiting from the sex industry. I'd call this shoddy research, and even shoddier scholarship, but I am hopelessly biased against both women...
