    2.) you are free to have this opinion
    3.) you are free to have this opinion also it wont change the fact he posted a lie or something that was factually not true as facts proved and you already pointed out yourself.
    4.) again doesnt change the fact that what he said was 100% false, his opinions (and yours and mine for that matter) dont change the facts. Like i said if he would like to backpedal and admit this truth he is free too

    Prostitution should be legal for individuals. Pimping, running a brothel, or otherwise profiting from or facilitating the prostitution of a third party should be illegal.

Taken to another level, government could eventually restrict welfare to ladies who are pursuing all legal employment options including prostitution as society labels those who refuse as holier than thou, old fashioned, sanctimonious deadbeats.

    Not that I'd personally recommend prostitution as a career choice.

    if so no comment

    Yes. Let it be regulated and taxed instead of that money from that industry going to criminals.

    It's true that it doesn't make any sense. Now, were it not for all the other socials ills that come with it, I could be for it.

    Last I heard the red light district in Amsterdam was having some pretty significant problems with violent organized crime that run the brothels there.

    Do you remember the rather brilliant comedy sketch featuring Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse in which they played laid-back police officers in Amsterdam, bragging that they no longer have to deal with the crime of murder in the Netherlands since the Dutch legalised it? Don’t laugh too hard. In 2000 the Dutch government decided to make it even easier for pimps, traffickers and punters by legalising the already massive and highly visible brothel trade. Their logic was as simple as it was deceptive: to make things safer for everyone. Make it a job like any other. Once the women were liberated from the underworld, the crooks, drug dealers and people traffickers would drift away.

    Twelve years on, and we can now see the results of this experiment. Rather than afford better protection for the women, it has simply increased the market. Rather than confine the brothels to a discrete (and avoidable) part of the city, the sex industry has spilt out all over Amsterdam — including on-street. Rather than be given rights in the ‘workplace’, the prostitutes have found the pimps are as brutal as ever. The government-funded union set up to protect them has been shunned by the vast majority of prostitutes, who remain too scared to complain.
    Why even Amsterdam doesn’t want legal brothels

    Yeah, sure. Legalize the pros, just if it came without all the other bad baggage it seems to come with.

    Re: Do you support the legalization of prostitution?

    Look at it this way (because this is how it is):


    Government is going to be a LOT bigger in the future whether you or anyone else likes it or not. Prostitution is already an industry. It's really a perfect example of an industry worth literally tens of billions of dollars in tax revenue that is currently going to the underworld. Will the underworld still control it even if it is taxed? Possibly, but so what? The underworld controls numerous industries that are taxed, it's not as if that's unique really. If the industry is going to exist it should be taxed simply put. Any other argument is illogical. Women who are going to prostitute their bodies are already doing so whether it's legal or illegal. It might as well be taxed.

    No, you posted some anecdotes that show that legalizing prostitution doesn't stop trafficking. Which we've already agreed is true. You have shown nothing that suggests that legal prostitution makes the problem of trafficking worse. You're just making that up.

    Yes, what two or more peopl want to do with each other for money is not something that should be regulated.
