(BBC)   In the wake of the Secret Service prostitute scandal, Colombia has plenty of laughs mocking the US for the incident. That is, of course, until a US airline advertisement associates Colombia with prostitution. Now it's not funny anymore   (bbc.co.uk) divider line 84

Yes, because a prostitution stereotype is so much worse than a drug cartel stereotype.

Okay lady, you're not doing it right by defending the legalization while simultaneously trying to seem like you're on par with other countries.

Ok, I wouldn't exactly hype the prostitution thing, but have you SEEN what most Colombian women look like? They make even the hottest women in NY look average by comparison.
They're a Goddamn national treasure.

Quickie CSB- dated a Colombian girl while in college. I thought she was the hottest girl around... Until I met her family. EVERY female relative of hers was STUNNINGLY beautiful. I'm almost glad we broke up. It took every ounce of self control to not get lost in my dirty thoughts and act like I didn't care.

No shiat. Anyway, Colombia is concern trolling. If ya ain't got fk all to offer except hookers and blow.. celebrate!

Lets be honest:

Aside from hippie backpackers (crazy!) and ex-Colombians, who goes to Columbia for anything except drugs and hookers?

I say embrace your strengths. Legalize drugs, regulate prostitution, and provide a relatively safe tourist area. Then sit back and watch the Gringo dollars roll in.

I went to Colombia for a year in middle school to learn Spanish, so I'm getting a kick.

/cartagena, where all this happened, is shiatty
//the rest of the country was beautiful
///media here really portrays it in a bad way, but the city I lived in was full of rich, American retirees when I went back to visit two years ago

You say that as if their drug policies were responsible for the international demand that drives the trade. Besides, coffee is the real source of their problems.

You go to Colombia without a suitcase full of machine guns you deserve whatever happens to you. Drugs are the #1 crime but kidnapping is #2 and it still has the highest murder rate in the world.

Foreign Minister Maria Angela Holguin also expressed regret at what she called the "stigmatisation" of Cartagena and Colombia.

"The fault lies with the US Secret Service. Prostitution exists everywhere. Wherever there's a man, there's prostitution, so don't come and tell us it's only Cartagena," she said.


It's sad that she sees all men as prostitutes. I'm sure she wouldn't need to purchase affection if she just took better care of herself.

Why so serious, Colombia?

First time a politician has ever said anything that I 100% agree with.

But she made it sound like a bad thing.

I was going to go all serious and say it has to do with the fare being $19.80 (weird number, by the way... anything to do with Colombia's cartel history?) and the additional fees being a whole lot more. Which, I guess makes this airline similar to a craigslist hooker...

But you win with your chocolate starfish.

Never should have outsourced the whoring.
Yes, they have been told.

If you really think that the Best and Brightest humans get all big, athletic, smart, and fast without a full set of hormones, you are sadly uninformed. Try living with these robust humans for a while.
Then voice an opinion.

Damn, they range from $50/hr to almost $1000/hr (NSFW) down there. I don't know why, but the most expensive ones don't seem to be the hottest in general.
