Last weeks poll was "Should Prostitution Be Legalized?"
The results of the poll are in:
|Yes, Brothels Only ||47.1%|
|Yes, Brothels and Streetwalkers ||21.5%|
|No, It's Immoral ||14.9%|
|No, It Attracts Criminals ||5.8%|
|No, Other Reasons ||5.8%|
|No, It Spreads Disease ||4.1%|
|No, It Wrecks Families ||0.1%|
|Yes, Streetwalkers Only ||0.0%|
Wow, what great results from the poll. 68.8% say prostitution should be legalized in one fashion or the other. That's a lot more than I expected. I thought it would be less than 50%.
The ones that said no seemed to focus more on the immoral aspect than on the side of disease or crime, though there was some concern for that.
There was only 1 single vote for wrecking families, which is sort of surprising, but some of those who picked immoral may also have wanted to pick wreck families, but felt immoral was more of a reason.
The funniest result was the streetwalkers only option which received exactly 0 votes.
If you have any comments on the results make them below.

Yes! If you are one of the many, and want to be involved in the struggle for Sex Worker's rights, there are many organizations, such as Sex Workers Outreach Project, trying to do what you all think. We want to decriminalize prostitution, and give sex workers back their human rights.
