    You make a very good argument, unfortunately the argument supports why it shouldn't be legalized.

    Take each point you make, and apply it to an already overburdened court/judicial system.

    Every act or service could be contested over quality. What a mess.
    So, we shouldn't allow the emergence of any more professions because it might tax our court system?

    No ****! And in all other jobs but sewer work, you're not a sewer worker!
    And in all other jobs but waitressing, you're not a waitress!


    Seriously... was there a point to stating the obvious?

    I'd say having prostitution illegal certainly is a burden on our court system.

    I'd rather my daughter work at McDonalds then be a whore. There's a big difference between flipping burgers cause you need money and taking off your clothes and allowing some strange guy to **** you.

    Also there's no imperative to reserve your burger flipping for special meaningful people the way there's a moral imperative to not just be running around ****ing everything.

    How sensible, New Zealand is to be commended.

    Somehow I doubt many would agree to this in either the US nor EU.
    Well done to NZ. Selling sex shouldn't even be illegal

    Not every prostitute is a street walker many have a regular clientele.

    Morals are probably the most subjective thing out there. If you do not feel your morals allow you to be a prostitute, then do not be one. That is a choice you made, let everyone else make that choice for themselves also. Some people find flipping burgers to be against their morals.

    The point here is that people make choices like this that affect their own lives. No one person's morals are a standard for everyone else to follow.

    So? They don't when they start out. When they start they **** strange men for money.

    What is the difference? Both are services?

    What's the difference between running your hands all over someone's body, kneading, pushing the muscles, relaxing them entirely, pleasing them in many ways, (a masseuse) and a person who kneels before you and rubs your feet, cleans your toenails, files them, paints them, files the callouses off your feet (pedicurist), and a person who has sex as a service? What's the difference between flipping burgers for **** pay, for ungrateful people, in **** working conditions, being forced to allow people to degrade you publicly, and treat you like crap while you take it with a smile on your face and someone who has sex?

    I'll tell you what the difference is.... the name of the profession. All professions sell a service. Some people would never work certain professions, because it's just not in their nature to work them. That doesn't mean that the people who DO work them are ****ed up for doing so.

    Also there's no imperative to reserve your burger flipping for special meaningful people the way there's a moral imperative to not just be running around ****ing everything.
    There's no imperative to save my vagina for something meaningful either.

    You didn't post about what you'd rather your daughter be doing or about moral imperatives. You said prostitution lacked honor and dignity. I pointed out that many other jobs lack honor and dignity.

    And you're right that there is a difference between flipping burgers and screwing for cash - prostitutes get paid a lot better.

    As to moral imperatives, its irrelevant as far as the question of legality goes. The purpose of our laws is not to enforce morality, but preserve liberty. I don't think you're really advocating creating an American theocracy, are you?

    As to what you want your off spring to do, that again has no bearing on the question of legality. There are plenty of jobs I wouldn't want my children or close family members doing, but that doesn't mean I support legally banning them.
    Slipping into madness is good for the sake of comparison - Unknown.
