Legalization of Prostitution = better industry?
Should the government do it? Or should it still be illegal?
I still say NO to legalization of prostitution. In my CLE (Christian Living Education) class, I learned that prostitution is the longest and long-running “profession” throughout recorded history. And in ancient times, specifically in Rome, prostitutes are even given priorities. And how about now here in the Philippines? Prostitution is still considered to be the job wherein you could get easy money. Sometimes, we just can’t blame them, since they do it to make a living. To cope up with the economic crisis in order to live.
So why am I against the legalization of prostitution? Simple. It will become a FAD. By keeping prostitution illegal, we could give out a sign to others that most of us still disapprove of the trade. It’s not and it’s never acceptable to legalize a certain act that degrades women that occurs whenever they use a woman’s body as a part of a business deal. When prostitution (which affects a lot of women) will be legalized, men will think that women, in general will be seen as objects for sex and see women as having sex with random men.
And so they reason out sex tourism. Just like in Thailand where prostitution happens to be legal. Wherein, foreigners go to a certain place as tourists and have sex with the prostitutes.
And if prostitution is legalized, people won’t make an effort to make their lives better. They’ll just be “prostitute” since it’s easy money. If prostitution will be legalized.. I really can’t imagine what life on earth will be and I won’t be able to imagine the mediocrity around us. It’s scary.. I KNOW. 😦
