I came across a video being shared by Logical Indian asking people in the city of Bangalore, if prostitution should be legalized.
There were mixed opinions (as usual) but there were many who said rapes will stop/reduce. Okay, what made you all think legalizing will reduce rapes? There was a detailed comment on the comment section of the page, which I couldnt help notice and laugh my brains out, and to which I have answers for. All the italicized sentences were written by the lady in the comments section. Don’t believe, you can check it out on the link yourself.
think it should be legalized because
i) this will help preventing young people/trafficking from entering this profession. (The age limit to enter this field can be 21 years)
How will this prevent trafficking? Say it’s legal, and the you don’t want to get into this profession. But you look so beautiful and young and 14, good enough to be in this by that pimp who is looking at you right now right across the road. He is thinking of whisking you away, and why not, its a legal profession now right? All he needs to do is ask you to shut your mouth or he will burn your face if you open your mouth about how you got there.
ii) Prostitution has been going on since many centuries, since it can’t be stopped the Government can legalize it and see to many aspects of the profession.
Even if it gets legalized the mentality of your pimp and trafficker will not change. Government will see to what aspects, like “How they we make more income from this?”
iii) It might help the Government in reducing rape cases.
There again. How the hell will making this legal reduce rapes?? If a pervert sees a girl on the road alone at night, he is not going to control himself and think ‘hey, I feel so aroused. I will go back to the street and pick up a pin up and feel better about seeing you on the road. Prostitution is legal, friends. Yay’
iv) People who suffer in this profession due to pimps and mediators need some rights and guarantees hence to protect them it must be legalized.
The only people I see who are suffering are the prostitutes themselves. Government, once legalized, will only assign a few rules and regulations, which will not necessarily be followed by the pimps and pimpettes. Have you seen any Indian follow or stick to rules? This just gives them a better reason to go ahead and do their job with arms wide open.
v) The Government will have proper statistics as to how many take to this profession and how are they brought to the field.
Hahahah statistics? Like there aren’t statistics already going around about how people end up here and have no way out because of no solid evidence!
vi) Exploitation of prostitutes and also spread of viral diseases (by doing regular check-ups) can be kept in control through this and hygeine issues can also be dealt with.
How does legalization allow regular check ups? Going to the doctor is legal, but do you regularly go to the doc and find out if you have a disease or does the government send you emails to go and get your check up done? Government is a government not an NGO. NGO means Non Government Organizations FYI.
vii) There are certain people who do not have access to sex (lonely and unmarried people, divorced, widower/widows etc), hence their rights also need to be protected through the legalization.
Huh? What rights of their was questioned anyway? If they are losers they are losers. If they want to go they will go and do what they feel like. What are you even talking about.
viii) The legalization will help the Government in generating some form of income tax, revenue.
You seem to be damn concerned about the Government income, like you aren’t paying enough taxes to the bureaucrats anyway, who sit away in the parliament with air conditioners on 24/7 and others are dying in power cuts.
Dude, get your head checked before answering with such details. Your reasons are absurd!
