I’ll come back to this later, when my computer isn’t so crashy, but I’m posting it now because there are a few people in this world who need to hear this and there is one person in this world who needs to get it off her chest and she runs this damn blog.
I may update this post or I may do a new one, I haven’t decided, (no, I did decide. Update here) so check back for updates! Keep your eyes on the tags and here’s some related homework. See if you can guess what I’m going to say:
Prostitution as economic indicator
Criminalizing behaviors is dehumanizing therefore legalize everything that humans do
Sometimes renting is cheaper than buying
Hmmmm…Looking forward to reading what you have to say. I just saw a doc on CBC about the sex trade in Vancouver, focusing on three different women with three very different stories…It was quite fascinating, but also very sad. I know you live near or in that infamous Vancouver neighbourhood, so I know you’ll have a unique perspective.
raincoaster, you are going to make us wait? I, for one and so interested in what you have to say about this. Hurry! By the way, that’s my favorite band :)
Yes, I’m going to make you wait. This has to do with one of the more epic characters in my life. Her biography will, I’m sure, be written in the form of an opera, it’s so big and gaudy. But it really can’t be said in point form.
Right now it is taking SEVEN AND A HALF HOURS to do a post, what with all the crashes. I’m going to compose it offline and then paste it up later.

I think prostitution should be legalized.
That way cops couldn’t exploit them and have them perform sex act for “protection” couldn’t exploit these women and contribute to the delinquency of minors, drug dealing, and crime in general.
Cops would them have to patronize, and also pay for, prostitutes on their own time, maybe they would spend at least 1% of their paid, taxpayer, funded job protecting and serving rather than just acting like “armed revenue collectors”.
Cops protect cocaine and heroin dealers. If you own investment properties or a small downtown business, police target you, not the criminals.
