Legalize it! Why? Health and safety that’s why. Safer working environment, cleaner facilities, less disease transmission, regulated and taxed. Or let criminals who beat women make all the money, your choice
@BearDaniels, facts. Plus why have the government tell me what circumstances behind consensual sex is okay?
@BearDaniels, We saw some state economies grow a shjt ton with weed legalization so I imagine along with increases safety and putting criminal pimps out of a job I imagine the tax revenue would be pretty damn big.
@BearDaniels, frankly I'm fine with prostitutes being beaten and/or dismembered in someone's trunk. They're basically my least favorite thong on earth.
@Captain Swordsman, Who hurt you?
@Paranoid Sushi, [Devil's Advocate] Are they truly consenting, though?
@Jdrawer, that’s a fair question but I would say yes. I go to work not because I genuinely want to, but because I’m paid when I do. There is clear consent between me and my employer, even if it is conditional on my pay
@Paranoid Sushi, But you chose to work that job, yes? Are most prostitutes able to say that, or did circumstance force their hands?
@BearDaniels, Legalize drugs too. For pretty much all the same reasons.
@Jdrawer, I'm not even gonna dignify that with an answer. It's such a stupid, scripted answer. I'm not usually about the "NPC' meme but damn you're about to turn me into a believer.
@Captain Swordsman, How about this: What are your reasons for having such contempt for prostitutes?
@Jdrawer, I guess the idea of someone being paid for something that should be a natural part of humanity and shared freely causes me to feel contempt. That said, I'm not actually in favor of them being murdered, that was hyperbole. And like egirls (something I despise even more than prostitution), I blame the people financing and enabling it more than the prostitutes themselves. If peoppe had some decency, self-respect, and self-control, prostitution would be a dead industry. That's just my outlook on it.
@Captain Swordsman, That's a fair enough point, though I would suggest redirecting your anger from the prostitutes and towards the systems that necessitate them instead. Also, I've got to ask: Do you get upset at grocers/grocery stores for the same reasons?
@Jdrawer, no because the stores are providing a product and/or service at a cost to themselves. They can't give it away and still eat their meals. Prostitutes, on the other hand, are taking the intimate act of sex and turning it into a business. Very, very different. And for your other point, I did say I blame those who finance/enable it more. Basically the entire second half of my poat already answered your first question.
@Jdrawer, oh god you didn't just say that
@CrazyRightWinger, Say what?
@Jdrawer, "who hurt you" I hope that was being sarcastic.
@CrazyRightWinger, I don't know, man. Wishing bodily harm on people who aren't hurting anyone seems a bit weird... unless there was some sort of trauma in his past to cause it.
@Jdrawer, in the status quo, yes, most prostitutes were forced into their occupation by circumstance. But the same thing can be said of minimum wage workers or subminimum wage jobs under the tip credit; it doesn’t mean it’s not a living. In the case of prostitution, it’s even easier to remedy abuse. Women can unionize and form professional companies under legal protection, which will allow women to escape abusive relationships with pimps and still find work if they are truly desperate. I’m not promoting prostitution as a way of life, but I think it’s as respectable a living as anything else.
The IRS is everyone's pimp in America
@Sand1998, oh boy is my pimp gonna be mad
It’s not prostitution if you film it
@ImNotRacistBut, that’s always been my philosophy on the subject
@ImNotRacistBut, your mother taught you well.
@ImNotRacistBut, Or if it’s in Vegas. Wait, no nvm that’s still prostitution. Just legal kind lol. Huh, wonder how the IRS be collecting taxes on them?
@ImNotRacistBut, prostituation is legal where i am
Ah shjt, I don't charge by the inch I charge by the foot. Think I'm lyin, bítch here take a look!
