    Re: Prostitution

    Since I have never been offered money for sex, I find the whole business discriminatory...
    That aside, it can be legal as long as discretion is used, behind closed doors, etc.

    Re: Prostitution

    I believe it should be legal, but limited to brothels that can be kept to a certain standard of cleanliness, safety etc. rather than just on the street.

    No, we should not legalize prostitution.

    Re: Prostitution

    So far I am the only no vote. It seems to me whether it is legal or not is a local decision.

    If it is logical then there woud only be one valid and sound conclusion. So, why did you vote no?

    Re: Prostitution

    I want to say yes legalize it but I don't want my mother or daughter working in the broths. Does that make my a hypocrite or just a normal man.

    I think you're pretty much normal with that thought. However, if you tell anyone I said that.. I will have to hurt you.

    As far as legalizing it, I don't think it'd be a bad thing. I really could care less... however, I'm with whomever said it should be regulated for safety, cleanliness, etc...
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice....shame on me.

    I think that's the position of everyone who is voting yes on this.
