I never said whether it should or should not be legal.
I'm pointing out that it is exploitative in nature. And this counters it being "great" for women.
As libertarians, many feel that ALL drugs should be legal also. But does that mean we should ignore the consequences and downside to what "crack" has to offer? Just because it is legal, or one may feel that it should be each individuals right to do what they want, does not dismiss or change the fact that crack is harmful. Whether prostitution is legal or not, it has it's negative side. I just can't simply dismiss prostitution or the negative impacts to women, based on rationale of whether it's legal or not. Just as rationalizing or ignoring the downside of crack, whether sold at the convenience store and taxed, would be any better. Libertarians feel both prostitution and drugs should be legal. And that is fine, But lets not sugar coat the pitfalls of both and suggest that both are good for you. The freedoms of libertarian thought, means folks can make the decisions for themselves. it does not change what may or may not be harmful.
Libertarians.....where suggesting cracked up prostitutes are the career choice of women!
Sorry....I don't think so. I may feel that a women can make that choice. But I don't need to say it would be good for you. That does not mean I'm against either. But that does not I need to glamorize or suggest it good for you either. Prostitution is not something I would promote or suggest for those less fortunate, that this is the way to get ahead in life.
Why everyone keeps thinking that making prostitution legal would make the underside go away, is equivalent to thinking that making drugs legal would make crack nonaddictive. It does not work that way.
