    Prosititution isnt going anywhere....'oldest profession.....' and all.


    Stop trying to tell people how to act....reduce the burden on the rest of us in cops, courts, etc.

    I hate useless 'feel-good' legislation and making prostitution illegal is probably the oldest of those pointless laws

    (And since when is sex 'deviant' behavior?)

    How about people act with a little self respect and personal responsibility. You want Trixie standing on your street corner? Or in front of your house?

    That's kind of like asking if I want Wal-Mart building next to my house. There are still business regulations, such as zoning and all.
    Bi, Poly, Switch. I'm not indecisive, I'm greedy!

    Same could be said of black market video games and movies makers. It's simply a false comparison. Trixie is not standing on my corner now. Why should she all of the sudden do so simply because prostitution in and of itself is legal?

    Why not? New market. YOUR neighborhood.

    It never ceases to amaze me...the people who want to use laws to control personal behavior. Wow. Esp. those that consider themselves American (the whole 'personal liberty' thing is important to most of us). (And the success rate for that 'concept' is only moderately successful. Certainly not sexually related behavior.)

    If you thought about it, would you realize that brought under the umbrella of commerce, they would be subject to zoning and other laws? Exactly where do you live? lol

    So then why hasn't she already entered into this new market? Again you're just throwing out something random that is not influenced by making prostitution legal.

    To make sure no-one works with transmittable diseases. To make sure no one works in the prostitution industry that is doing this against their will. To make sure they get a fair share of the income they generate (no take all or almost all pimps allowed). Brothels need to be safe and clean to ensure health and safety for clients and prostitutes.

    Street prostitution should still be banned to protect both the women and the johns.
    Former military man (and now babysitter of Donald Trump) John Kelly, is a big loud lying empty barrel!
