Should prostitution be legal? I really, really do not know. Kevin Drum wrote:
...my official position is: who cares. This stuff shouldn't be illegal in the first place and I don't care what these guys do in their private time.Let's be real: very, very few women are choosing to be prostitutes out of simple choice. They are doing it because they are out of choices and are scrapping the bottom of the barrel. Only a very tiny few of them are brilliant, sexy, forceful women taking care of their destiny, like get written up in New York Magazine. Almost all of them are, in fact, poor, desperate, and perhaps have substance abuse problems. They are poor. It sucks.
I'm disappointed that a liberal like Kevin would think otherwise. There are so many god-damned more important things than where Eliot Spitzer puts his dick. Tens of millions are living without health care. Our very civilization is destroying the planet's atmosphere. Our major means of energy production is starting to decrease in abundance.
And we're worried about who Eliot Spitzer sleeps with. It nearly makes me puke.
