Prostitution - the scourge
I've had an eye-awakening experience this past week that has caused me to 180 degree turn on my previous opinions on prostitution.
Now of course any decent individual would be against any woman being a prostitute through force or because of a drug habit. Rightfully so.
But in all my dealings with my fellow atheists, we're pretty liberal on many views.
Gay marriage? Yes
Abortion? Yes, the option should 100 percent be available, at either really low cost if not free, and discreet. Birth control is, of course, a much more favorable option, but shit happens. Women should have all options and 100% free control of their reproduction. What's your face, that canadian guy that is on here, can't remember your name at the moment. The guy whose forum name starts with something that sounds like vagina, feel free to illogically disagree. Whatever.
Gays in the military? Fuck yeah. I was in the military for 6 years. And yeah, my ship kicked a couple people out during my time there because it was discovered that they were gay. Other guys on the ship, who we all knew they were gay but they happened to never be proven gay by some random incident, so they stayed. But they were so gay. It was blatant. Obvious beyond obvious. Did anyone, in any private comment or otherwise express having a problem with it? Fuck no. Not in 6 years did I encounter a single person that was upset that there was some obviously gay guy on the ship.
Fucking Evolution should be taught as the fact that it is and any movement to either prevent the teaching of our children that evolution is reality OR trying to teach them some retarded, religously motivated alternative to evolution should be taken even half assed seriously, should be squashed. Immediately and without a single tender emotion.
Drugs should be legalized and taxed. You can't legislate morality. The "war on drugs" has failed harder than prohibition in the US way back in the 1920's or whenever.
Now of course, because we are all liberal, non-religion believing individuals, then of course, we all believe that if a full grown woman who is not forced to or a drug addict and reduced to deciding to be a prostitute or an escort or whatever you want to call it, well that's fine. Why deal with those old abrahamic religions that are so stodgy about sexuality? Outdated morality, right?
That's a big fucking no.
This is something that we all need to grasp right now. Regardless of our previous thoughts. There IS NO SUCH THING as a woman that decides to sell sex for a living that is not in dire straits. Whether from childhood or adolescent abuse or some kind of coercion or pure desperation from drug use or starvation.
Not a single one.
Ok, maybe one chick. But she died in 1488 or 1543 or some shit (I'm just throwing out random years, no one specific in mind). Bitch is dead.
Prostitution should be strictly illegalized, the "johns" prosecuted without mercy and the "hookers" rushed into social services to address their needs.

This shit is utter bullshit.
No more should we, if we have any shred of hope of considering our species progressive, or growing, or maturing, or being more humane in any manner, can we tolerate this. In any form.
