    She could probably work as a dancer at a gentleman's club, which is currently legal, yet also looked down upon by society and probably not what we would want for our daughters.

    I would consider prostitution more respectable, but that's just me. Engaging in literal sex is better than the creepiness of so-called "gentleman's clubs".
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    "I say we build a strip club!"

    "What's a strip club?"

    "It's this great idea of mine! It's like a whore house, but instead of having sex with the women, you just sort of sit there and stare at them! brilliant, eh?"

    "Ummmmmmmmmmmmm..."

    "What?"

    I most definitely would not want my daughter to dance in a "gentleman's" club, for any amount of money.

    Let's turn it around. The individual in question has hemaphobia and the only work they can find is in a slaughterhouse. Should they be denied assistance unless they are willing to work in the slaughterhouse?
