    Funny, Germany has completely legal prostitution that is highly regulated, and they have a tiny fraction of the number of abused women and problems that we have in the US.

    No, you haven't backed down an inch. You keep repeating the same tired statement over and over again without providing any reasoning or arguments to back it up.

    People now have more freedom to do with their bodies as they please, and all you can do is scream "IT DIDN'T INCREASE PERSONAL LIBERTY!!!"

    And FYI, nobody gives a flying rats ass about the "standards of decency" you made up. Stop trying to use the power of the state to enforce your ridiculous viewpoints onto other's lives. You may want the government in your bedroom, but we don't.

    So go play your stupid game elsewhere.

    OK, so we're on 'wash, rinse, repeat.'

    You keep telling us 'we know what those standards of decency are'. I call BS because apparently...you dont, so it's silly to expect us to.

    What is silly is you asserting you do not know what it is, or that it was further eroded.

    Nobody knows what your "standards of decency" are. You keep acting like we know, but have refused to explain it for 17 pages. It's getting a little ridiculous now. Either explain it, quote it where it was explained, or shut the **** up about it.

    And you, as well as others, keep ignoring that we are talking about what a Court in Canada did.
    You keep ignoring that the standards being discussed are those that the Court changed.
    You keep ignoring that those standards were codified into law and were not personal standards.
    You keep ignoring that the removal of those standards is a further erosion.

    Stop playing games.

    So you're refusing (again) to explain what these standards are? Do you even know them yourself?

    Everyone else here seems to believe that greater personal liberty is an increase of decency. Why do you want the government in your bedroom?

    It's hardly the number one priority for America but I hope someday we'll grow up and legalize brothels, solving many problems all at once. Goodbye pimp. Goodbye drug sales. Goodby HIV positive girls. Goodby unsafe sex. Hello high paying jobs. Hello a safe work environment. Hello tax revenue. Hello world tourism (everybody likes American girls).

    Bring it on.

    Can you work any harder at avoiding the question?

    I went back to the article. Those 'standards' are never mentioned...only you brought them up.

    What are they?
