In my opinion, NO!
However it should be regulated, supervised, and taxed.
If a woman or a man want to sell their bodies that is fine with me, as long as their adults, and of course they are not forced into the occupation.
Decriminalizing prostitution for both buyer and sell of the service would be a step forward in my opinion. If it is done at safe and controlled enviroments.
People who wants to engange in proffesionally into the field of selling sex as a service, should be taxregistered, as it is their occupation, with that said, there would also be taxexamptions for their purchase of condoms or other relevant “tools of the trade”. A regular screening of STDs should also be mandatory. They should be allowed to operate from a proffessional brothel or from their home.
No street selling, making it legal to have the service offered from a brothel or a home, would help getting it off the streets, and those on the streets would be considered illegal.
Pimping to some extent should not be legal, if someone has forced someone, in any manner, be that human trafficking or binding contracts. But if a person can offer a building or provide marketing services, that person should be entitled for wages as a proffesional pimp (even though that title sounds ridiculus).
In theory that would probably open up for more police resources, that are now spent on tracking down illegal prostitution.
I never really heard any good arguments against prostitution, or its legality. Most of them are based in ethics, which stem from a society’s religious and cultural background. However if anyone could provide me with some really good reasons why it should be illegal to sell sex as a service, than I am all ears.
So what do you think?
It seems that I tend to post pone my haircut too much. My hair grows like a fucking weed.
Everytime I feel like I need a haircut, I am like “naah I can wait, I do not have time to order a haircut just yet…”
People ask why I do not get friends to cut my hair, well my hair is very very thick and it almost needs special tools in order for you to cut in it.
Plus it looks like hell if someone who cannot cut properly cuts it. So yeah I am picky about who cuts my hair.
But seriously this dead possum on my head is getting to the point it is both ridiculus and annoying.
Welcome to my emo looks, fuck no.
So next week, I am getting a hair cut. If not, you may call me his highness Dalai Llama for the rest of this month.
Emo head signing off…
I have on numerous occassions been called a “militant” atheist, on JesusRadio.dk they have talked about “militant” atheists and none of the times there has been an elaboration of what they actually mean about it. Because it seems that their definition of militant is that if you are skeptical, outspoken, or question religion in some manner, you are militant.
Would it not be a wonderful if the religious militants were militants in the same manner that “militant” atheists were. Asking questions and be skeptical to all claims. Hold lectures, publish books, generally outspoken…" It does make one wonder, when religious people call atheists as being militant, what do they mean? Do they honestly mean that they are as bad as their religious militant counter-part? What if people that were militant about their religion, people that use violence in the name of their god claims, what if these people just held lecture, were outspoken, and denounced violence, would it not be better?
I do not think it is fair to call atheists militant, unless they are actually militant as in the popular definition, that it is someone that do not uses arguments for their cause, but rather violence, and trying to bully or use fear to get people to change their opinions.
