    Tricky question. I don't think people that routinely abuse certain parts of their bodies should ever be candidates for organ transplant, or at the very most they ought to be at the bottom of the list. Alchoholics, smokers, people with other substance abuse issues. I'm not talking about people that have a few drinks or smoke a little pot. Just the ones that really put their bodies through the grinder. I'd rather see those clean organs go where they won't be subject to the same abuses. People don't need to believe they can get away with doing whatever they want, and avoid consequences for their actions.

    However, I see the point about the organs being your property and its really your decision as to how they are used.

    I'm kind of torn, thinking about it.

    Well the last time I checked if you didn't pay a prostitute that meant she was either a sex slavery or you were a thief.

    Slaves are not prostitutes. They're slaves.

    There is nothing about "prostitute" which carries an inherent meaning of freedom. If her body is up for sale, it's prostitution, rather it's her choice or not.

    Incorrect. SHE is not selling sex, her owner is. And if her body is up for sale, then that's not prostitution at all, that's selling humans. ie, slavery.

    SHE doesn't need to be selling her body. If her body is for sale for sex, she is a prostitute.

    Really? So if someone sells my body to be a farm worker, I'm actually an farm worker and not a slave? I mean, my 'profession' is farm worker simply because that's what I'm being forced at gunpoint to sell my body for?

    Weird. Who woulda thunk it? Slaves aren't slaves at all! They're all actually just various professionals.

    No Jerry, if someone is forced to do something, they aren't a 'professional whatever-it-is-they-are-forced-to-do'. They're slaves. If someone puts me on a stand and auctions me off, and I'm purchased and forced at gunpoint to dance for my new owner, I am not a dancer. I'm a ****ing slave. A person whose body is sold against their will for ANYTHING is a slave. I'm not suddenly an accountant because my body is sold for that and I'm forced at gunpoint to do it.

    In any case, this is completely irrelevant to the conversation and completely irrelevant to what I was saying to Partisan.

    Alright guys, look. Lemme break it down.

    You're either a Freelance hooker and you work for yourself (which is frowned upon in the business) or you's somebody's ho, while it's not always "slavery" as they do receive money and gifts sometimes. If they's been turning lotsa tricks. Gnomesane?

    Dps is dps, tank is tank, healz is healz, rather you're your in a guild raid, a random dungeon hero or a group quest pug. The job is the same.

    If your body is a sexual commodity, you are a prostitute.
