Girl rebuilds life after month as a prostitute

I didn't realize people had become so openly depraved... prostituting teenage girls on Craigslist? WTF?!?!?

Anyway, though I would HOPE that nobody on CR would become a prostitute, I have been surprised by comments that I've previously seen from SOME people. This story ought to serve as a warning to anyone who thinks this isn't a seriously bad thing to do.

prostitution is everywhere. In high school, you'd see girls after class standing on the intersection selling pussy.

Prostitution itself isn't a bad thing, if a man or woman (of age of majority in their country/state) is fully aware of the dangers and all the pros/cons of being a prostitute, and still does it, more power to them. Their life, their decision, if people dislike it, well, nobody is forcing them to be one themselves, or to use their services.

That said, underage prostitutes, and those forced to it for any reason, that's a big no-no and should be hit with exceedingly harsh charges.

As for the medium, well, times are a-changin'. Can't stand under a streetlight forever, might as well hit the biggest market you can (in a legal sense, still a no-no for the above semi-paragraph ^^).

Legalize it in all places. Tax the profession. That way you can cut down on the number of children working the streets (not eliminate, but lower numbers), and the registered prostitutes gain more access to medical/governmental care. Eventually, much of the stigma would leave job.

There's always going to be people pimping children, or taking advantage of those suffering misfortune, but with proper registration and legalization, many of the biggest problems become substantially smaller (as in the case of New Zealand, was close to a 60% drop in the number of underage prostitutes when it was legalized).

Prostitution is one of the oldest professions that still exists today. I don't see how it's bad.


It's immoral, it's both degrading yourself and (not trying to sound religious because I'm not) bringing disrespect upon your body which should be treated as a temple. Though I'm hardly going to go to the extreme and go all Jack the Ripper. I say if people want to fuck up themselves like that then let them, it's got nothing to do with me. Sometimes, like in the case of sex slaves, they have no other choice.

Fair play that this girls now able to rebuild her life from this experienece, but what annoys me about that whole article based on her side of the story is either spent blaming other people for her actions or justifying them as being a good thing, while at the same time contradicting that and turning on the pity vote with "I just wanted to be happy.", Jesus Christ, as if we haven't heard that one before, I can't stand these people.

I remember we had the same argument about drugs. Right now we are paying way more money to keep some of these drugs illegal on the streets. First the police and the hospital have to send out someone every time theres a drug over dose on the streets (it happens often) then you have gross needles lying around everywhere. It makes more sense to legalize it and give the people who want to use them a safe house to do it. It lessens crime, the cost of sending out units to clean up dead people and you don't have as much needles around the city.

a little off topic but you bring up a good point.

It makes no sense to let gangs and criminals reap all the profits from minor drugs (Class C, like marijuana), if it was legalized and monitored, the gangs would lose a good chunk of revenue, children would have a much more limited access to it (being a gangs would make much less profit, thereby being less inclined to sell it), and it would free up much governmental funding and police officers ^^

Unfortunately, most people can't get past the "ZOMG BATMAN! DRUGZ R BAD!" mentality -_-

Only works on the minor drugs though, when you get to class A's it's an entirely different fish.
