    Re: Selling sex legally in New Zealand

    So why isn't Germany at the top of the list where prostitution is legal?

    LMFAO Yeah, coincidentally, the sex slaves are going to a HUGE ****ING CITY with a massive ADULT ENTERTAINMENT MARKET where prostitution is NOT LEGAL. It's no big surprise.

    How so? It's their own choice. Your choices don't somehow make you superior just because you see them as better.

    So it damages children. Why can't we damage children? Because they're people with rights? Why do we have to give them rights?

    ALL MORALS.

    No, the potential for abuse is so overwhelming, we do it to protect sick, poor, or dying people from being pressued into selling their organs at the hands of an unscrupulous doctor. Morality doesn't enter into it.
    Why do we care if there is abuse? Why do we care to protect the poor and dying?

    MORALS.

    This could fall under animal cruelty laws. I suppose some could argue animal cruelty laws are morality laws. Again though, how many casing of animal ****ing are in our courts today? Its a law that affects virtually no one in our society.
    Treating animals humanely is absolutely about morals.

    It's hard to find laws that have zero moral basis. Most laws have a moral starting point.

    Again, your opinion. Personally I place blame on the person paying for it and not the person selling it. At least the person selling it has some business sense. The person paying for it is desperate for sex. A prostitute would have no business if they didn't have willing customers. Why no blame towards them?

    Honest answers only!

    Well, I personally would rather see my daughter happy, and if that makes them happy so be it. It's none of my business. If they are an adult then I see no reason why they can't do what they choose. Then again, I don't have the same stigma that many people here seem to have against prostitution.

    An estimated 400 000 prostitutes work in Germany, about 250 000
    of whom are probably foreigners. Many were brought into the country by human traffickers from Ukraine, Bulgaria and Russia.

    Is Germany getting taxes out of it?

    I put lots of blame on the customer. I've said that already. They are the ones who drive the demand up to levels that encourage human trafficking.

    No it is not. It is about making them more tasty.
