Unnatural? For one, nothing really is unnatural so I think the use of that word is dumb, but it actually is natural, monkeys and I think penguins
engage is prostitution in exchange for food, protection, etc. Also, if prostitution was legalized that's another job the government could tax, which
would be a good thing if they didn't misappropriate taxes. Besides the point, anyways as for the children prostitutes thing illegal prostitution
would be hella lot easier tracking down if it was legalized.
And as for the modern society and it's desensitization to orgasms or whatever your infuriating point was, since the dawn of society there has been
sex, prostitution, rape, all that good stuff. So I guess what i'm saying is, is that nothing you said was based on factual evidence your claims were
I'm also pissed this has any flags, when there are plenty of other threads on ATS that are well-thought out and not the product of some
sexually-repressed, angry, and immature poster.

you should look up the definition of unnatural.
We are not monkeys or penguins.
your point regarding legalization does not make sense, unless your admitting that corrupt governments should be able to benefit from tax revenue?
I personally believe it should be legal. I think freedom should be legal and believe in personal liberty.
There is plenty of evidence regarding the Egyptians use of the Ankh, I usually prefer to discuss those topics I find them very interesting and
here is that definition...
1. In violation of a natural law.
2. Inconsistent with an individual pattern or custom.
3. Deviating from a behavioral or social norm: an unnatural attachment.
4. Contrived or constrained; artificial: smiled in an unnatural manner.
5. In violation of natural feelings; inhuman.
maybe you could expand your use of the word?
A few examples high fructose corn syrup, Genetically modified papayas, flax and soy. Genetically modified, or GM, foods come from plants that have
had genes from other species spliced into them. Some GM crops are created to be more pesticide- or drought-resistant, while others might eventually be
made to have super-levels of vitamins or other nutrients. Most of the soybeans and nearly half of the corn grown in the U.S. is GM., though much of
that is used for livestock feed. If you've bought papayas from Hawaii or canola, though, chances are good you've eaten GM food. (By the way, here's
a tip for evaluating produce: if the little sticker on your squash or zucchini starts with an 8, the food is GM; a 9 at the beginning indicates
organic produce, while a 4 means it's conventionally grown.)
2. High-fructose corn syrup. Found in soda, junk food and processed foods of all kinds, high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is kind of like corn syrup on
steroids. While not technically "unnatural" -- it is made from corn syrup, after all -- HFCS is made via enzymatic processing to boost the natural
syrup's fructose content. HFCS didn't exist before 1957 (the year the process for making it was invented), but it's taken off big-time since then,
in part because it's cheaper than sugar and in part because it helps foods last longer.
