Awesome what does it say?!
Joel reads review.
Arguing about being Edge-lords.
Jeremy tells milo it’s not as easy as just reading stuff.
Milo decides to be the host(like a Dickhead).
Welcome everyone and thank you for joining us. This is valid arguments. A show about a sex worker and a wealthy businessman that fall hard for one another. I’m Jeremy Horton, and Today were going to be talking about sex work, but mostly we will be quoting pretty woman. We will also be arguing about marriage, and Fashion. Joining me today is Mr. Milo Mordhorst on my right. (Milo intro). And Mr. Joel Barkley on my left. (Joel intro). Thank you both, now I want to start by each of you telling me about a time in your life where you, yourself have felt like a sex worker.
Questions I will ask:
- You guys familiar with the 10th amendment? It is perhaps my favorite amendment. It reads, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” It basically says that the states have every right, individually, to give the federal government the finger. I wanted to start with that because prostitution is a state’s rights issue. My question for you guys is should this be seen as an equality issue and thus fall under the purview of the federal government?
- If you are listening to this than you know I don’t like to skirt around big issues. The biggest issue surrounding sex workers today is the potential for it to cross the line into sex trafficking. Given that we, as we say all the time, are three white guys from the Midwest who don’t know anything. My next question is should we even touch this one?
- Palette cleanser/segment – Is love is a good basis for marriage.
- One of the problems I personally have with sex work is the perception that people are commodities that can be bought and sold. If paying for sex is normalized, I believe it sends a signal to young people that sex is not something that two or more people who like each other do together, but more like a trip to the post office. That sit right with ya’ll?
- Palette cleanser/segment – is fashion important? Or a social construct?
- There was a study done between 2003 and 2007 on the economics of sex work shows that sex work can bring in anywhere from $39.9 million to $290 million per state. That’s a shitload! And while that number is very hard to pin down, if it’s anywhere close to that, shouldn’t that be basis alone for exploring the idea as a valid profession?
- Palette cleanser/segment
- Recently a Texas woman who says she was forced into sex work at a legal Nevada brothel has filed a lawsuit seeking to outlaw all bordellos in the state. operators argue the women who work there are safer than those who engage in illegal sex work on the streets. Opponents say that the best way to combat these illegal activities is to crack down harder on the illegal pimps and massage parlors. Coolio said Life is full of hardships, pimp slaps, and sorrow. The last question for me is, how do we solve this crazy thing?
- Absolutely! Sex workers should have all the rights of any other working group. Amnesty International had initiated a consultation to develop a policy to protect the human rights of sex workers. They caught a lot of shit for that stance.
- Nope. Definitely shouldn’t touch that one.
- Sex workers are murdered just for doing their jobs. The reason it doesn’t “sit right” with you is the lack of empathy our society shows to these people. We need to start there and then we can argue about what makes you uncomfortable about the situation.
- Sex work IS a valid profession. You don’t have to be an economics major to see the clear benefits of legalizing and taxing this profession.
- Legalization and government regulation are the only way. Period.
- They call it the world’s oldest profession. To me it sounds like the world’s oldest OPPRESSION. Boom. Zinger. AMIRIGHT?
- Definitely not. Don’t comment on that, whatever you do!
- Of course, it doesn’t sit right with you, because the inside of someone’s body is NOT a workplace. What’s next? Training courses and state sponsored certification tests?
- The moral implications are the bigger issue here. It wouldn’t matter if unemployment was at 50% nationwide. I would rather die than have someone selling their body to some incel that can’t get laid on their own.
- Illegalization and stricter punishment for offenders, are the only way. Period.
- The only people against sex work frame their argument as anti human trafficking.
