So is working at McDonald's or as a temporary laborer. No woman has to prostitute, they choose to.

As a last resort

The vast majority of women would rather work at Micky Dees than sell themselves

Yes, they are very common on the East coast

I don't know. Never been to a massage parlor before. I'd assume even the Chinese ones are probably no different than the cooks in the back of a Chinese restaurant. They're probably less of a slave than they would be otherwise and while not necessarily happy probably aren't doing it entirely against their will.

You are being intellectually dishonest about the subject. Human trafficking is huge in America sadly

PsySR: Psychologists for Social Responsibliity


Some people with an agenda REALLY need to educate themselves. Again, I am not arguing for or against legalization, I just think that there is an ENORMOUS amount of ignorance on the subject by several posters on this thread
Well, this is something that I witnessed with my own eyes. The AMP girls were in it of their own volition. The only coercion was on the part of local police, who were known to sometimes have sex w/ them and then bust them. Then police/prosecutors would threaten to toss them behind bars if they didn't rat out their friends.

Sorry, but I'm going to put more credence in my eyes than in your UN studies.

If its YOUR daughter, or YOUR mother, than let's go ahead, and legalize prostitution. Women aren't just objects for a man's lust.

The sex industry with all of its addicting demoralizing filth is what is causing so many people to become "loners".

You know this how? I imagine it would be so easy to break off and freelance as a prostitute on the east coast that what you're claiming is an impossibility.

Yeah, there is a lot of sex trafficking in mainland China itself. Like pre-crackdown, one just had to look at the P4P hotspots like Dongguan, and Zhuhai. Dozens of KTV's with 500-1000 girls each. Most of them trafficked from poor provinces. Same with the BBS's. I quite enjoyed them tho. Girls didn't seem miserable. If their families didn't sell them to those places, they woulda sold them to factories or some crap.

So what are men, just objects to be loathed and to get money out of?

I don't know how many stories I've heard of a guy trying to make a stripper or prostitute he's been paying his girlfriend just to be conned and used. Prostitutes aren't victims, if anything the johns are.

Given you distaste for the government in your posts, I am not surprised

But I think you are full of it here
