cman: Oh, the Netherlands, how I hate ye.Your language sounds like a girl speaking English with her mouth occupied by a certain male sexual organ
Tell Me How My Blog Tastes: But yeah, forced/underaged prostitution is awful too. DNRTFA, but I thought that place was pretty tightly regulated.
InmanRoshi: andersoncouncil42: I'm utterly shocked that an article by the Spectator bares no resemblance to reality, shocked. Bullshiat article by a conservative rag. The people that could believe this crap are those who have never been and have the mentality of a timid sheep.Yeah, Ugly American article written by an Ugly American magazine written for an Ugly American audience who believe a night at On the Border for fajitas and margaritas constitutes experiencing an exotic culture.
Vodka Zombie: Wonderful place if you're not so petty or childish as to hate an entire nation for the language they speak.
theflatline: The worst tourists in my experience are not americans.1. Israelis, in groups of 1-2 they are fine, but anything more they reach critical mass and become drunken unruly louts, and unfortunately krav maga is always involved.
doublesecretprobation: human trafficking happens EVERYWHERE, not just in places with legalized prostitution.
traylor: That armpit thing is true.My ex GF learned Dutch at the university and one summer she went on a trip to the Netherlands and lived with a Dutch family for a week, then with an other family for an other week. She said they were quite average folks, and the thing that she would remember the most about them is their strong body odor. They had a bath once a week and ate a lot of stinky cheese.
Where wolf: It's a huge problem in Georgia, specifically the I-75 corridor.
Arkanaut: Also, I thought the armpit of Europe is still Albania.
YouPeopleAreCrazy: Andromeda: I feel perfectly comfortable cycling home at 3am while alone as do all my friends, for example, and so does everyone I know: it's that safe, and you could never do that in the US.In the vast majority of the US, yes you can.
H31N0US: I have fallen behind. Which side of the aisle bankrolls The Spectator?
Andromeda: Oooooh boy.American living in Amsterdam here (for 1.5 years now) and let me tell you, the city does not resemble what the article paints it like at all. Only time I ever see prostitutes is if a friend is visiting and just HAS to see the Red Light District/ a Fark party. Nor have I as a woman been accosted going home as the article says, or anything like that.I further find it telling that this article doesn't say how much more prevalent human trafficking is in the Netherlands than in other countries. I would be curious to hear if it's much higher as of the last 10 years or so.
doglover: I'm pretty sure you can find sex slaves in America. Underage hookers as well. Not to mention the gun violence. Europe's not much better. And I don't care HOW nice Germany gets, you don't get a free pass for fueling the two largest wars in history in a mere century just because your economy looks good now.Glass houses, etc.
InmanRoshi: <i>Underage runaways, Sex Trafficking, Forced prostitution </i>So basically like the Republican National Convention?
Karac: Interesting tidbit: several years ago, the Department of Defense added a regulation which outlawed members of the military hiring a hooker; even if doing so was legal under the local laws - even if that location was one of those brothel-friendly Nevada counties.The theory behind this was that the odds of the girl being a trafficed sex slave were so high that it could be presumed that no prostitute anywhere in the world was able to consent to sex and hiring her would be tantamount to rape.
Yes this is dog: clane: Liberals are funny and sad at the same time...[pnsexplosion.com image 600x450]*checks profile*I honestly can't figure out if you are just a troll account or just a douchebag.
gilgigamesh: The thing of it is, Vegas was able to legalize the sex trade without all these problems. As far as I know.
Vodka Zombie: Tell Me How My Blog Tastes: But yeah, forced/underaged prostitution is awful too. DNRTFA, but I thought that place was pretty tightly regulated.It is. I think people are taking a lot of the really bad things about Copenhagen, Denmark, and trying to apply it to Amsterdam in an attempt to disparage an entire country.
Dutch are scum
