That fact has remained constant whether prostitution is legal or illegal. If the case is that legalizing it will protect women from such abuses, then it fails as illegal trafficking has simply been driven deeper underground and women are seen as even bigger commodities than before. So then what reason is there for legalizing? Taxation? As if the local gangs/pimps in the US bringing in $33K a week will simply start filing taxes once prostitution is legal. Again, if your arguments were based on something valid, they'd be acceptable. However, the reality is that prostitution brings far more oversight than traffickers are willing to put up with and they'll simply go deeper underground. This has already been demonstrated to happen.
    My arguments don't "fail" because I haven't posted any arguments on why it should be legalized. I've posted my opinion, which is that I think it should be legalized, taxed and regulated. That isn't an argument. I haven't made any arguments in this thread.

    Nobody discussed your arguments for legalization, what were discussed were your arguments against keeping it illegal. Like these ones:

    There is a large number of women who are being held by their husbands against their will and beaten too.
    Not all prostitutes are being kept in a house against their will and beaten if they don't work.
    These are absurd arguments I was discussing earlier. If you really tried to make a convincing argument against keeping prostitution illegal by comparing domestic violence to women who are being trafficked, you've SERIOUSLY lost credibility in this discussion. The fact that you tried to argue against keeping it illegal by pointing out that some aren't beaten just shows how little concern you have for the safety of these women. The conditions are nowhere near the same or for that matter even somewhat analogous. It's like saying slavery should be legal because some masters don't beat their slaves and some people are free.

    I have no concern over the safety of women in bad situations. Okay, now you're stretching, but if it makes you feel better, go ahead. I enjoy reading sanctimonious posts. They make me laugh.

    I think prostitution should be legalized. You don't. I'm not "arguing against keeping it illegal". I posted my opinion on if I think it should be legalized.

    By the way, I'm not looking for "credibility" on an anonymous message board. Is that why you post here - to get credibility? This is a place to post opinions and argue your case. But it's anonymous, so there is no credibility between anyone but me & myself.

    Nice snipping of my post. I didn't think you were capable of such a dishonest act. Disappointing.

    If the safety of women isn't important, then legalization of prostitution will only legitimize forced prostitution. As such keeping prostitution illegal won't change much. Do you disagree?

    Find someone who said the safety of women isn't important to discuss that with. I never said it, and never implied it, and your dishonest snipping of my post doesn't change that. I'm finished here, thanks.

    You mean this person?

    I have no concern over the safety of women in bad situations.
    I wonder who said that?

    I said that in the post you snipped. You left out this part:

    I have no concern over the safety of women in bad situations. Okay, now you're stretching, but if it makes you feel better, go ahead.

    And of course, I never said or implied that I don't care about women's safety, and of course you already knew that. My posts are all in this thread.

    I thought you were better than troll posts. Guess I was wrong. Your posts are trolling posts, and you know it. Carry on. No interest in playing this game with the storm coming in here, sorry.

    Absolutely.

    With the caveat that some provisions for the health and safety of the prostitutes are included.

    Would be faaaaaar better than the current situation.
