    but falsely claim they are my standards, (just like the others), when they are not my standards.
    Given that you haven't pointed to any objective source for these "standards," period, they are your standards, even if you refuse to say what they are.

    Define that for me. And explain why your definition should govern other people's behavior.

    I figured you were playing the same game.

    It is common knowledge what it is. Which is apparent from peoples responses.
    Maybe you didn't know, but I doubt it.

    Don't need to. That is the definition of decency.

    Nor is it my definition, or my standards. It was the standards that were law.

    Those "prevailing standards of propriety or modesty" were codified into law by the peoples representatives.
    The Court removed those standards not because they were no longer the prevailing standards, but over safety issues.
    Their removal from law is an erosion of those standards.

    By Randall Palmer, Reuters

    OTTAWA — The Supreme Court of Canada struck down all current restrictions on prostitution on Friday, including bans on brothels and on street solicitation, declaring the laws were unconstitutional because they violated prostitutes' safety.

    The sweeping 9-0 decision will take effect in one year, inviting Parliament to try to come up with some other way to regulate the sex trade if it chooses to do so.

    [...]

    Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin said many prostitutes "have no meaningful choice" but to "engage in the risky economic activity of prostitution," and that the law should not make such lawful activity more dangerous.

    "It makes no difference that the conduct of pimps and johns is the immediate source of the harms suffered by prostitutes," she wrote.

    "The impugned laws deprive people engaged in a risky, but legal, activity of the means to protect themselves against those risks."

    [...]

    And the further erosion of decent standards.

    The Justice's reasoning is absurd. Or is that liberal?
    And, today, Mayor Rob Ford is a happy camper. LOL.
