    Kind of bizarre view of likes for your post here. Makes me wonder if they do it compulsively (without listening) or if they are false personas. Here’s my response, below.

    Punishing the Clients, Not the Prostitutes

    In 1999, when Sweden made it illegal to buy sexual services, its European neighbors could hardly believe it. For the first time, it was the customers and not the prostitutes who were being punished.

    “Prostitution now flourishes in obscurity,” wrote the influential German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, saying that it was a “defeat for the women’s movement in Sweden,” and speculating that “dogmatic feminism” was at work. Can a society that wants to be free of prudery punish men who visit prostitutes? It can, says Ekman, citing the successes in her country, where fewer and fewer men are paying for sex and where those who do are more and more ashamed of it. “Before our law came into effect, one in eight men in Sweden had visited a prostitute,” she says, and notes that that number has since declined to one in 12.

    Of course, prostitution still exists in Sweden, but street prostitution has declined by half. The total number of prostitutes has dropped from an estimated 2,500 to about 1,000 to 1,500. Pimps bring women from Eastern Europe into the country in minivans and they often camp out on the outskirts of cities, but prostitution is no longer a big business. Critics counter that prostitution in apartments and via the Internet has increased, and some men are now going to brothels in the Baltic countries or Eastern Europe instead.

    The Swedish law isn’t based on the prostitute’s right to make autonomous decisions, but on the equal status of men and women, which is enshrined in both the Swedish and German constitutions. The argument, in greatly simplified terms, is that prostitution is exploitation, and that there is always an imbalance in power. The fact that men can buy women for sex, the Swedes argue, cements a perception of women that is detrimental to equal rights and all women.

      Yeah, exactly Marleen. Laws create criminals and prohibit adults from consenting behaviors. Believe it or not, women actually are the cause of the majority female exploitation, not men. A look into any cult, the sexualizion of our society, etc. the examples permeate our history. It is funny how these laws empower men and take the power away from women, yet they claim these laws empower women.

      As far as the like ratio goes, just because you may not like something, doesn’t mean that other people cannot. Are you surprised that 9 people liked my post?

        I’m appalled at women supporting your rationalization of prostitution/pornography. Christian women at that.

        However, at the time of this post of mine a few hours later, the tally is five. Fellow groomers, like you.

        1. bottomlesscoffee007

          Hahahah, oh Marleen, are you clutching your pearls now?

          What is my rationalization? That people should not be hindered by man made laws, rather they should have the freedom to make their own decisions and face their own consequences.

          Groomers? Marleen, you seem to be a tad dramatic today.

          What is your rationalization for being against pornography and prostitution?

          When did I ever come out in favor of either? I believe I asked a question as to why they are looked down upon or why they are illegal.

        2. bottomlesscoffee007

          What is the difference between art and pornography? What is the difference between a plumber and a prostitute?

            The subterfuge of an abusing mind; deceit used in order to achieve one’s goal — intrigue, deviousness, smokescreen, pretext, artifice, masquerade, scam, trickery, ruse, kidology, codology, ploy, fraud, fraudulence, con, shift, hoax.

            The problem with pornigraphy/prostitution is not a canvas. It’s the human toll.

            Ok, so I used the term “penis envy” in [a] colloquial sense, not the original sense. …

            …. A psychologist doesn’t set out to free someone of their demons, rather they groom their patients to fit into society to continue the lie “that today we are doing it right compared to yesterday, today we know better”.

            The threat to people like you is the notion there could be competition against your worldview and all that goes with it. Now you can clutch your pearls.

            1. bottomlesscoffee007

              Dang Marleen, good usage of complex words.

              Tell me, what is the human toll from prostitution vs just being a slut? What is the human toll of hard labor, what is the human toll of any profession?

              Should laws be designed and enforced to promote good order and discipline? Who decides what is good and what is bad? Who is the authority on dictating our lives and micromanaging free will?

              Are you the authority that should tell all women what will and what won’t be tolerated.

              The problem with people like you Marleen is that you are quite possibly a control freak, and the thought of people living counter to your way of life threatens you. Because you feel as if you have the answers to everyone’s problems.

              Can you simply not live and let live? Must you conquer the hearts and souls of all the world to live by your decrees and your decrees alone? You sound like a Puritan that burns witches at the stake, since they do not adhere to your strict standards for a holy life.

            2. bottomlesscoffee007

              You remind me of Gladys Kravitz, always peering through your blinds, constantly monitoring your neighbors and breaking down into a conniption whenever you see or hear something you don’t like.

              1. Marleen

                You said: Groomers? Marleen, you seem to be a tad dramatic today.

                You prove that hypocrisy and subterfuge are alive and well in dogmatic minds such as yours.

    2. “Kind of bizarre view of likes for your post here. Makes me wonder if they do it compulsively (without listening) or if they are false personas.”

      I checked out BC’s likes, of which I am one, and know all but one of them – none of them are false personas. I can’t speak for the others, but I like BC’s posts in support of him – it’s intentional, not compulsive…and they RARELY mean I 100% agree with everything he said/wrote. I do not hide behind anonymity here and I choose my public battles with BC very carefully. I am not interested in the public at large knowing my views on everything under the sun.

      “’The fact that men can buy women for sex, the Swedes argue, cements a perception of women that is detrimental to equal rights and all women.’”

      You should read “Brothel” by Alexa Albert, who was a Harvard Medical School student that conducted a six-year-long public-health study, assuming she knew the results and setting out to prove them but, in the end, being surprised by her involvement. It’s a very interesting book that gives you an “insider” view of prostitution.

      “I’m appalled at women supporting your rationalization of prostitution/pornography.”

      You do realize that BC discussed several other subjects besides prostitution and pornography, right? You can assume that my like of his post means I support everything BC said, but you’d be dead wrong.

  2. One other comment for BC: I assumed someone would have set you straight on this but, in my review of the comments more than 24 hours following the posting of your podcast, it hasn’t been addressed: “people of color” means anyone not white, it doesn’t mean just black people.

    1. bottomlesscoffee007

      Ok, I can understand that. So the meaning has been expanded to include other groups and exclude whites. It still comes across as segregationist.
