    Do you know the difference?

    Your accusatory tone towards people is certainly not a very good debate tactic and is more along the lines of starting an argument. That's why I ask.

    At this point, it appears more like arguing than discussing the thread's subject matter...
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    Slavery is having your free will removed. In prostitution, at no time are they giving up their free will. They're willingly entering into a contract. If that's not the case, such as they're being coerced by their pimp, then the law should step in to prevent this coercion.

    Same as every other idustry: make a regulatory authority. Duh.

    Thing is it isn't always between "adults." There are a LOT of underaged girls and boys into prostitution. But legalizing and regulating it would help to cut down on those things IMO.
