As a woman who has done sex work and who found it to be a deeply satisfying, lucrative, and mind-opening experience — someone telling me what I am and am not allowed to do with my body really shits me. :| If you want to address prostitution in your area and protect the sex workers like most of these people in government claim to want to do — legalize and regulate it. Prostitution -IS NOT- going away. Ever.
You can embrace it and make EVERYONE safer, or you can keep slamming your head against the wall. Let me know how that goes for you.
