So right now Prostitution itself is not really illegal. Holy shit, why did I not know this? Not that it is like a job goal, but I shoudl know these things. But the restrictions put on prostitution have been said to rather than discourage the practice make a dangerous profession that much more dangerous.
•Laws against keeping a common bawdy house prevent them from working indoors, where it’s safer.
The argument on the other side is that is makes the sex trade more attractive to young people today.
•Laws against communicating for the purposes of prostitution prevent them from taking time to talk to a potential client to assess the risk they pose.
The argument being that this way pimps can’t pick up young girls and entice them into it.
•Laws against living on the avails of prostitution prevent them from hiring bodyguards
I just don’t get this law at all other than pimps must be a better option, right?
Anyway, going to the Ontario Appeals court to see if it will uphold a ruling by a judge that declared the laws unconstitutional. At CBC news so far 72% of Canadians want the rules struck down and argue that a persons right to do as they wish with thier own bodies .
Anyway, I don’t know I felt the need to blog about it. But here you have it. What is going on in my corner of the world. And no mail delivery due to postal strike lock out.
