    Because, again, hookers are known for keeping off the sides of homes and buildings while doing business. You try again. You want it in your neighborhood? Good for you. We dont.

    Pushing a Pro Prostitution agenda, clearly a liberal concept. Yet the Conservatives are waging a war on women. Go figure.

    Again false comparison. You are trying to compare the behavior of prostitutes under a prohibition system verses one where it is permitted. Do you have any hookers against your house right now? So why would they suddenly start because prostitution was legal? Are prostitutes leaning against houses against the building owner's wishes a problem in countries where it is legal?

    You think only women sell their bodies?

    Over your head? People are pushing legalizing hooking, done predominately by women. Pushed by predominately by liberals.

    Legalizing prostitution would lessen the victimization of prostitution.

    Then you CAN see where legalized prostitution can actually be a positve thing? My bad. I didnt get that from your comments.

    No, because it legitimizes it and makes it a possible legitimate way for young women think they have to make a living. I understand why legalizing it would be of benefit, but I think the bad effects outweigh the good.

    I believe that it demoralizes a woman to sell her body, and the effects are permanent. So although legalizing it would help protect women who are prostitutes, it would encourage more young women to do that instead of, say, waittressing or whatever.

    I think the French had it right in the old days, with the use of courtesans, and the Japanese had it right with geishas. Although they were prostitutes, it was a one-on-one relationship where the woman was regarded as a person, rather than just a body for sale. She could live all her young life on the payments and gifts and houses. Her future was protected. And although not considered ladies like non-prostitutes, there was a certain regard for these women in their societies. That is not the case with American prostitutes.

    I think if one truly believes a woman has control over her body and that no one should be able to tell her what to do with her body, of course it should be legal. *
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
