Did you ever wonder why it is called "The World's Oldest profession?" Should theft be legalized? By supporting capital punishment, war, stand-your-ground, etc. aren't we condoning and therefore legalizing murder?

Whether directly by parents selling their children, drug gangs coercing young women, or indirectly by just the biological imperative of feeding your body food or drugs, how much free choice is actually involved in a woman's choice to sell her body? Just wondering as I have only a passing acquaintance with prostitution, one neighbor was a part timer for the fun of it, but another was a part timer when the food stamps ran out and baby daddy was late with child support payments or just skipped altogether. The third was a crack addict feeding her addiction.

Would love to hear female perspectives on this, because mine has a potential male bias, I stand against Legalized prostitution.

There is free choice and a system could be put into place to make it legal. For example, a consenting adult of at least 18 years of age. People may choose to enter into prostitution for various reasons but I don't see the harm in one consenting adult compensating another consenting adult for sexual activity.
