If you look at it from the dictionary perspective, then yes, but porn stars are not getting paid with the sole interest of sex; this is to say they are not being paid for sexual service, but to film it. We can argue that until we die. What pissed me off is that you are calling them prostitutes, not "Webster defines as" prostitutes, but a direct comparison to actual prostitutes who are one of the most abused niches of humans in our society. This is especially prevalent in the U.S., in fact, the only group of people in the States who recieve on par, human rights abuse-style treatment are the 5 million mexicans living in your country. To say that a porn star, especially one like the one running for Governor, is a prostitute is to imply she has no legal status in your country, no legal rights, etc. etc. etc. You can not, unless you have a single operative brain cell which at the time of comparison has fallen off of it's pedestal, call a porn star (no matter how amateur or sleazy the star) a hooker. You can pull out every damn definition of hooker out that you want, but it does not glaze over, or change the fact you made an extremely ignorant, and insulting comparison between one of the lowest class of CITIZENs (that's right, most of your hookers are bred in the US, or in Canada) in existence, and a professional in one of two professinal positions (stripper is the other) where women out make the men paid to do the same job. I'm not trying to go on an anti-porn or anti hooker rampage, I think both should be legal; I am just suprised that you are so ignorant to assume hookers and porn actresses are on anything close to the same level. By definition, you have democracy in the U.S., and Canada, but we only have one real thing to vote for: Coporate interests. Hauling out a broad definition to support your argument doesn't make it right to juxtapose a, for all purposes, non-human entity, and a respectable citizen of your country. The underlying ignorance to the fact that the two are so far apart indicates a much larger problem, but I don't even want to start.
Fascism: N. A system of government which aims for total control of it's citizens through: religous fervor and sentiment, extreme nationalism, State intertwining with military, media control and manipulation, and marriage of corporate interests with state policies.
That is the definition of Fascism. You would probably deny that the US is a fascism, too, but your be-all end-all definition argument is so compelling, I hope this illuminates a fact for you.
