For once, I’d like to pose a question without necessarily providing an answer: should prostitution be legal?
As a general rule, I’m against the idea of women being used for sex, and as a result, I don’t like the idea of a world in which prostitution is legal, common, and not taboo. But legalization — or something shy of it, like decriminalization — seems overwhelmingly supported by feminists, and activists concerned the safety, independence, and basic well-being of women.
Perhaps more importantly, it seems the sort of thing that, while dangerous, can be made safe by regulation (unlike, I think, drugs). This means I’m out of reasons to oppose legalization, or decriminalization, but I don’t like it. Am I missing something?
