    Re: Should Prostitution Remain Illegal?

    It should absolutely be legalized. But only brothel prostitution, or other ones that have an establishment. Street prostitution is too dangerous.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    Re: Should Prostitution Remain Illegal?

    One reason to keep drugs, prostitution illegal is the employment of 500,000 policemen, DAs, judges, wardens, lawyers, clerks, guards, inn-keepers in good stead.
    Do we want these 500,000 joining the 500,000 unemployed auto-workers ?
    Talk about change.......and exaggeration..
    What a time to be alive and still kicking.

    No. Why is it you can give it away but not sell it.

    Can't say i like prostitution but i support the legalization to combat the slavery that is street prostitution. Legalization would reduce that significantly.

    Morally yes. Realistically speaking? No.

    If you want to bring morals into law, then by keeping it illegal you are forcing innocent women into the trade who cannot get out because the law views them as criminals instead of victims, thus enpowering the pimps to do whatever the hell they want.

    All so-called "victimless crimes" should ideally be legal, unregulated, and untaxed.

    I ****ing read that mate. You said morally as well. Morals have a place in the law and sometimes what seems wrong to you isn't wrong at all. Morally the prostitution should be legal and regulated. So piss off with your bad attitude.

    Then reading comprehension is not your forte'.

    No I did not. I said it is morally wrong. Since morals are subjective, it was not a statement of fact, but my opinion.

    Has absolutly nothing to do with my statement.

    Bad attitude? You assume I said something I did not and accused me of supporting pimps etc.

    If you want to bring morals into law, then by keeping it illegal you are forcing innocent women into the trade who cannot get out because the law views them as criminals instead of victims, thus enpowering the pimps to do whatever the hell they want. - stalin_was_a_nice_being

    Your statement was moronic and does not apply at all.

    Again I ask what part of this comment do you need explained to you?

    "Realistically speaking? No."
