I May Be Crazy But...: Carlo Spicy-Wiener: Or, you know, they could legalize and regulate prostitution which has been shown to lower crime rates, increase tax revenue, and reduce the spread of STDs. Of course, doing that doesn't give them the opportunity to tell these women how horrible they are for being prostitutes. If it doesn't punish or demonize women, minorities, or the poor, then it's not much of a solution, right America?Yes, this is a better solution than throwing them in jail, but only in the same way that telling your child that they're a terrible person and going to Hell for masturbating is better than beating them with a leather belt.You know, I agree with you in principle. But if you actually read the article, they aren't browbeating women into going to church, they're helping scared, beaten drug addicts find a way to quit a dangerous and unpleasant job.
ArcadianRefugee: FTA: Once a month, cops pick up women who they either know to be prostitutes or who are soliciting sex and bring them toSo, cops can just "pick up" people who have crimes in their past, even if they are not committing any at the time?
GentDirkly: This is, of course, why female realtors, caterers and interior designers have pimpsSince when do any of those jobs involve bodily contact, a vulnerable pose, and close quarters with only one way out? I'm just sharing with you what the experience has been in Hamburg and Amsterdam.
Lord_Baull: cameroncrazy1984: Are we sure this is the RIGHT Texas?The big metropolitan areas of Texas are liberal islands in a sea of red derp.
houstondragon: It's a dangerous and unpleasant job because of the criminal element involved due to existing laws. Again, if it were legalized, and women (and men, for that matter) could conduct their trade in a safe, clean and drug-free environment, wouldn't that make sense?Not to mention the income generated by local governments from taxation and the reduced cost of law enforcement. But no, there's too much money involved by locking up some gal who's already playing a shiat hand from Life, and dumping more hardship on them to further ruin any potential chance to escape it.
Father_Jack: Lord_Baull: cameroncrazy1984: Are we sure this is the RIGHT Texas?The big metropolitan areas of Texas are liberal islands in a sea of red derp.isnt that the midwest in general? little islands of blue in seas of red, and the red detris washes up on your beach, beats you up, goes back out to sea...parts of wisconsin and ohio come to mind here (madison, columbus) too. indded youd almost think you were on a coast with the way people think, but you know youre in the Midwest because every drives a domestic car and most of the people are at least 50lbs over weight
Lionel Mandrake: cops pick up women who they either know to be prostitutes or who are soliciting sex and bring them to the lot behind McDonald's, where PDI offers women 45 days of live-in treatment, including trauma, substance abuse, and mental-health counseling, as well as help navigating social services, finding housing, and securing a job.Sounds like mollycoddling criminal moochers to me. They made their choice, let them live with it. We shouldn't be giving them handouts. Ayn Rand would not approve.~this is what American "Christians" actually believe.
