You are really naive. Yes, there is a serious issue with drug addicted and under age prostitutes being forced to service men for sex. However, where
prostitution is legal, this is very rarely the case. Men and women engaged in this sort of prostitution, such as in Nevada, are far from deviant or in
need of 'rehabilitation'.
What we need is a rehabilitation to our arcane views of sex. You want to decrease pedophilia, rape, incest, and other disturbing forms of deviance
then quit applying arcane moral judgements based on religion and pseudo-feminism.
If sex was easier to discuss in this country then molestation victims (I prefer the term child rape since that's what it is) would not feel so ashamed
and would come forward to make sure the perpetrator was punished! However, many of the little girls and boys have been brought up thinking sex is
'naughty' and are in fear of getting in trouble!
Prostitution is no different. Want to make child prostitution disappear? Legalize (adult prostitution) it, tax it, regulate it, and prosecute people
who pimp children so harshly that it makes the Saudis seem liberal!
Jesus H Christ on a pop tart, I swear, the evangelical idea is to make it a sin and castigate, and the liberal idea is always 'rehabilitate'. If you
want to know why the country and world is in a mess, it's because neither of the viewpoints is worth a tinker's damn in my opinion. There's no happy
medium with these people, it's either fire and brimstone or touchy, feely psycho-babble. (Sorry that the last paragraph is a little off topic, but
it's tangential to the debate!)
