With every ounce of my heart I believe prostitution should be legal.
So does the writer at this link, if you choose to read it.
I have two more simple reasons to add as well.
Divorce Rates and Dead Spouses.
The ones who clamor on over the “morality” of sex work for pay
obviously are unaware of the devastating results of
those forced into forging mangled relationships/families-often, to avoid persecution for a human sex drive.
Or the clamorers have hearts fashioned just as cold as the “sex slavers” that they’re so hell bent over ‘finding’- in their ongoing tirades against prostitution-for their refusal to care.
Either way, it needs to be addressed quickly when considering the rise in ASD “conditions” being diagnosed and what that will mean for our society’s future (if it even has one) of the Healthy Marriage.
Most of us do not usually contemplate the connection between unhappy marriages and the destruction wrought by them; the ugly domino effect of overlapping disasters from sexless partnerships, raging depression.. all the way up to child custody in divorces.
Nor do we choose to consider the most extreme horror of a dysfunctional marriage. When an exhausted spouse , after years of futility, chooses a final escape from the torment by suicide.
As homosexuals were often forced into forging deceptive lives to avoid the pain of arcane ideals and punishment, many ASD individuals (incapable of caring for emotional well being of other human beings) have also manufactured deceptions to gain access to simple things such as sexual intimacies.
Both often involving the joined lives of partners struggling to maintain love in inhumane atmospheres-neither returned nor demonstrated.
Both often resulting in precious years wasted of ordinary human beings forced against their will into being treated no better than conveniences for sick and selfish gain and/or fear.
It seems irrational and cruel to me how we insist upon prostitution remaining illegal in the face of such miserable fallout, affecting thousands of lives…merely because a human is not “allowed” to do what a human, by nature, wishes to do.
How is it that we refuse to see how insane it is to trade a human being’s years of potential health and happiness..
(-the forced to be deceptive spouse and the frustrating failures
-the victimized spouse and the slaughtered esteem
-the innocent children who deserved better than the rancorous poison of a household that nurtured them with little happiness nor considerable peace.)
…to maintain stubborn control over what can generally be a meaningless few hours of base pleasures? Meaningless hours that don’t require the pretending of interests that will never be, extravagant lies threaded throughout love that will never exist or the intertwining of incompatible lives made unbearable for the lack of trust and tender affections.
If we think that “young women being held captive in a sex industry” is barbaric and to be avoided at all cost…
How on earth can we justify the moral and social enslavement of countless current men, women and children trapped in hellish households in response to “saving” the lives of these hypothetical “victims”?
(I won’t bother wasting my time to address the morality argument of an imaginary “god” who “disapproves” of prostitution. That’s simply speaking in shameful fairy tales when this is clearly an issue that deserves serious, merciful and adult discussion.
However, I will do the favor of reminding us that a higher order is not a higher order if it is plagued by human characteristics such as judgment. We should be ashamed to embrace such ridiculousness.)
This is one seriously horrific pound of heartbreak that could be radically diminished
by an ounce of cure…if we could simply and seriously look at what’s truly at stake.
