Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

But like I said, this is just "if prostitution had to be legal, and it occurred in smercury's fantasy land" I don't see this happening at all.

thats just it,how you wantit does not fall under prostitution. Prostitution is having sex for payment,so what you propose is completely irrelevant to the topic

So then, I can safely say, my stance on whether or not to legalize prostitution is still firmly no. Hug I think I'm done for tonight. And I still love ya lightvader, hope you still like me too! Smile

Never claimed to be mature Tongue and my quotes have sleep error levels.

Why do you think getting rid of prostitution all together is not a realistic goal ?
Slavery was once claimed to be impossible to kill off.
Child / Spouse abuse is now not acceptable

To legalize something that many abused women think is the only thing worthy of them, is despicable.
The government are complicit in ignoring the issue.

because it hasn't happened in the past,while the legalisation has led to a decrease in % of the illegal prostitution,wich is a realistic goal.
Because with every law,and law enforcement,criminals get more creative. Legalising prostitution will not eliminate prostitution under inhumane conditions,it will make it decrease and the funds that the govt gets can be used to further prevent these situations.

And how many people had to die in the civil war? And isn't a subcatagory of today's prostitutes easily fitted under the definition of slave?

Where is the evidence for this, all cases ive searched show a huge uptake in illegal workers to accomodated the increase3d customer base.

This PDF pretty much covers most arguments for legalisation. (Melissa Farley is a bit of a crack pot, but most of the observations I agree with)
http://www.prostitutionresearch.com/pdfs...203-09.pdf

1. MYTH: Legalizing prostitution gets rid of its criminal elements - pimps and
traffickers.

2. MYTH: Men need sex therefore prostitution must exist. Prostitution is a natural
form of human sexuality


3. MYTH: Prostitution is sexual liberation


4. MYTH Women choose to enter prostitution. It’s better to choose to make lots of
money as a prostitute than to choose to work at a minimum wage job like McDonald’s.


5. MYTH : Prostitution is a victimless crime. Legal prostitution protects women in
prostitution.


6. MYTH: Most prostitution does not involve pimps.


7. MYTH: Legalizing prostitution would protect sexually exploited children. When
prostitution is legal, licensed brothel owners do not hire minors or trafficked women.


8. MYTH: Prostitution is the world’s oldest profession.


9. MYTH: Social stigma is the most harmful aspect of prostitution.


10. MYTH: If you try to abolish prostitution, it will go underground.


11. MYTH: Prostitution is a deterrent to sex crimes.


12. MYTH: Pornography and stripping are not prostitution.


13. MYTH: Legalization of prostitution is an entirely separate issue from human
trafficking.


14. MYTH: Even if it’s not perfect, legalizing prostitution would at least make
prostitution a little bit better.


15. MYTH: Legalized prostitution would control the sex industry.


16. MYTH: Legal prostitution brings tremendous tax benefits to cash-strapped
regions. Nevada’s rural counties reap economic benefits from legal prostitution.


17.MYTH: If you oppose legalization of prostitution, you’re saying that prostitutes
should be arrested.


18. MYTH: If you oppose legal prostitution, you’re a moralistic, judgmental, prudish
person who is pushing your value system on people who think differently from you.

So.. you're saying, "it should be illegal and the Police should do nothing to stop it"...?
