"They said legal, not lethal!"
WorldNetDaily brings us the following story.
Ten weeks before San Francisco shocked the nation by issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples, the city quietly took another step in America's cultural revolution by liberalizing its massage permit laws to the point where some critics call it de facto legalization of prostitution.
Addressing the issue of sex workers in the massage industry, outgoing Mayor Willie Brown, with the nearly unanimous support of the Board of Supervisors, signed a new law Dec. 5 that redefines it as a public health issue rather than a matter of law enforcement.
Nice Job, Mayor. This is the exact direction that we need to go, to deal with Draconian Sex Laws like this. Prostitution should be legalized. Most people know (wink wink) what can possibly go on at some massage parlors. The customers aren't forced into doing anything they don't want, and neither should the masseuse/masseur. As long as that doesn't happen, I don't see a problem with it.
Legalize it + Tax it = everyone's happy
Legalize it; Tax it; Regulate it. Improved standards is the biggest legacy of legalization of both drugs and prostitution. The rampant spread of AIDS in communities like Atlantic City with high prostitution rates would be slowed by applying even the most basic health standards. You'd also put to an end the brutal cycle of victimization of millions of women who suffer at the hands of a pimp.
