There may be a legitimate point to make about the similarity of prostitutes to mistresses, courtesans, and even fine ladies of society. Not all prostitutes walk the streets, and not all court life was romantic. However, calling Lady Greensleeves a prostitute is obviously wrong. If that's what she were, the guy would have nothing to complain about (except exorbitant fees).
