And if sex for money was legal these sex workers would be free to call 911 and have their abusers arrested, then most likely sued. If legal the police and the legal system would be on their side and not against them.I've worked as a police officer. So I've worked with prostitutes. I would counter with this:
"I think break and enter for theft should be legal. If two consenting adults agree that one of them should be able to go into the other one's houses and get something, that's between them. I should be able to let a friend get something from my house."
See what I did? I described a harmless thing and called it by the name of a crime, and in that way made the crime sound harmless.
If there's ever some fantasy, science fiction fairy dust pixie unicorn land where prostitutes are doing a job for their own money - that they keep - then sure, yes, in that completely fantasy world, prostitution would be harmless.
We do NOT live in that world.
If you actually, genuinely don't know what is going on when you use a prostitute - then get down on your knees and thank God, with tears... grovel in thankfulness that you don't know. Because you'd probably kill yourself if you ever found out.
People who've been sexually and physically abused 10 to 40 time a day since they were six years old can be very, VERY good at hiding it from the John who's 50 bucks is going to get her not kicked in the face a couple times tonight.
I've interviewed dozens of prostitutes for statements.
If you gave me a choice of using one sexually or cuttng off my own finger. I'd do the finger.
She's suffered enough.
Those poor ladies that have been subjected to sex abuse most of their lives and now do it for drugs or to not being beaten, is sad. Beyond sad. If the trade was legal most of these "worker" would have a way out or at least a way of getting help as needed. The story you tell is only because the trade is illegal and forced underground.
