State Senator Hoylman offers “It’s unacceptable that in 2019, New York is still incarcerating and prosecuting sex workers. What our current laws treat as a crime is, for many marginalized New Yorkers, a tenuous lifeline and a livelihood. Criminalization renders them vulnerable. It disproportionately impacts LGBTQI+ New Yorkers, immigrants, and people of color, and furthers a devastating cycle of violence and incarceration. This has to end.”
Yes, well, I suppose it had to happen. If we legalize what used to be a drug—the mere possession of which could get you jail time—why not legalize prostitution?
Not everybody has to smoke pot but nearly everybody has an appetite for sex hence our crowded planet.
Oh, wait. Prostitution is legal in Nevada, so I guess it is only a matter of time before we can order our sexual pleasures from Amazon.
I know I am behind the times because I don’t know what Senator Hoylman is referring to when he talks about LGBTQI (I mean the QI—that’s new to me).
If we legalize prostitution think what a relief it will be to the Catholic clergy—they can order up their own altar boys and help the impoverished families in the congregation at the same time.
