    You certainly have a way of twisting the facts, what one says, around. Prostitution being legal has nothing to do with O'Reilly or with promotions. That is unless one lives in Nevada and the gal is really, really good at it. Then she might get a promotion.

    Your question is totally irrelevant to the subject. Twist and turn and try to make something that isn't there into something that wasn't just to suit your needs.

    It isn't irrelevant at all. Prostitution is contract employment including sex.

    I notice how when the practical applications of legalized prostitution is actually given real application, it seems everyone runs back to trying to claim they only mean brothels. If so, then the polls and topic should be limited to brothels, which it is not nor are responses limited to government regulated brothels.

    If the topic is only government regulated brothels, even if nationwide 90+% of prostitution would still not be in government brothels.

    The question is, rather, legalizing employment contracts for sex. If O'Reilly told a woman "I will hire you if you have sex with me" that is an employment contact that includes sex, i.e. prostitution, which most on this thread claim should be legal.

    It is absurd to claim it should be legal to hire someone for sex, but illegal to hire someone for sex and answering the phone.

    Connecting strings, conversations, themes and posts . . .
    Anton Chaitkin


    Stop, listen and learn, then question why you support what you support and the motivations behind what it is that you actually support.
    I was listening to British Blokes and during the course of their conversation, they mentioned Anton Chaitkin so I gave him a listen to see if there was any relative connection with my reason and thinking. Surprise surprise, there is. The quest for truth and further learning brings about strange bedfellowing.

    Leave people alone, if someone wants to sell their body be it for sex or to sell organs, then that's their business.

    Given that you don't believe that women have free will (they are victims regardless of whether they considers themselves to be victims) it seems that you are the pot calling the kettle black.

    That ought to be up to each jurisdiction. In some places where prostitution is legal, it is not allowed on the streets. You would throw the baby out with the bathwater.

    Again showing that you don't think that women can own their body and decide what to do with it.

    By your (faulty) logic, forcing people into the military to go fight and die would be 100% legitimate. Forcing men and women to clean up radioactive waste from meltdowns would also be legitimate (ala Fukushima.) Or to be a subject for drug trials.

    It's really a simple matter of not making welfare contingent upon jobs that require one to engage in acts that one deems to be immoral.

    Prostitution is two things. Free trade and sex. Which of those things are you against?

    both legal. What two people do and pay each other for privately that affects only them is their business. The fuzzy area foe me though is when a guy bangs a tute then spreads disease to his unsuspecting wife. But I guess smoking does the same thing and no one cares.

    Prostitution is illegal but Escorts are legal.
    Porno is legal if everyone's over 18 and human.

    Sex workers are legal.

    Can't stand on a street corner but you can put an ad up on the internet or phone box.

    I'm a rock-solid, Right-wing economic Conservative who believes in personal FREEDOM as being one of the very most important rights any American citizen has, and should have! I don't visit prostitutes, and don't watch very much porn, but I think that if a person wants to immerse him/her-self in either of these kinds of activities it is fine with me -- just so long as:

    1. I don't have to participate in it.
    2. I don't have to look at it.
    3. I don't have to listen to it.
    4. I don't have to smell it.
    5. I don't have to pay for any part of it. (Absolutely NO related 'sob-sister' welfare programs, 'prevention' nonsense, or any of that idiot-liberal "issues" crap!

    Same goes for smoking marijuana, drinking alcohol, or anything else a person wants to do within his/her rights as a free American citizen.... Do whatever you want! Have a ball! You enjoy it... but you take all responsibility for it, and you PAY for it! :banana:

    Wrong question. The correct question should be: "Why Porn and Prostitution should be illegal".
    My answer - have no reason to make it illegal. Both make people extremely happy.

    Why have so many famous men been attacked for making having sex with him a condition of employment or advancement if everyone favors prostitution being legal? That is what prostitution is.

    Any person can believe any job is immoral. Nearly all jobs have an element of danger. Courts have given the choice of military service or prison.

    We now know how to offer employment to poor single mothers, particularly poor black women. Poor black women can become the sex workers of rich white people. This is the solution to race and economic disparity problems in the USA. White wealthy people will literally fxxk poor people and minorities so they don't have to be homeless.

    Maybe white people wouldn't be so racist if they could hold minorities down by their hair and f..k them for a few bucks. The Democrats and Libertarians should run on the platform as a solution to race and economic disparity issues.

    This is what the USA needs. Poor people standing on street corners holding signs reading "Will have sex for food." This would definitely improve every city and improve the USA's standing in the world.

    I oppose free trade and I oppose selling sex. Free trade doesn't even exist today.

    So you oppose government regulating prostitution, correct? What business is it of government if there is STD testing, registering who is a prostitute, or requiring condoms be used as it is no one's business.

    Sorry, but no it's not. When a person sells themselves willingly, like a Congressman to special interests, then they are a prostitute. When they are forced to do so as a condition of employment or forced to do so, then the difference is one of choice.

    Regulation in any industry makes sense for safety and quality.
