Re: “Red-light greenlight: Sex work at the brink of legalization

You want safety for sex-trade workers? The New Zealand model doesn't protect workers from bad johns, abusive pimps, the infiltration of the Trade by organized crime, or trafficking.
You want a model that protects girls and women from all of that, plus re-trained police, judges, social workers, and more, that states sex trade workers are not criminals. The system goes after the johns and the traffickers, imprisoning them while supporting the workers. The numbers of sex workers injured, the level of prostitution, the level of violence against women, all reduced by unprecedented numbers since 1999, when a Swedish Parliament composed of almost 50% women voted for legislation that doesn't criminalize sex trade workers - it criminalizes the johns.
This solution offers girls and women support: for those in the trade, those looking to get out, and those who have left. These are viable alternatives, solutions that don't leave sex workers without support, don't offer either empty moralizing or. roadblocks to real choice.
No other legislation in New Zealand, Australia, Nevada, U.S.A., England, Denmark, NONE can do better than Sweden.

Re: “Red-light greenlight: Sex work at the brink of legalization

Decriminalization and legalization allow organized crime in as pimps, brothel owners and human traffickers.
You want women to be safe? Follow Sweden's model. Since 1999, they've criminalized the johns, increasing jail time, re-training police, lawyers, judges, social workers, health care professionals, all to assist women in the trae, leavingit, or out of it. The results are spectacular- not only is prostitution cut in half, but woman abuse numbers are down, and the cops chase traffickers and johns - numbers 'way down there, too. Women aren't judged, they're given a choice, with real alternatives. And who put this legislation through? The Swedish Parliament, composed by almost 50% WOMEN.
Any more questions?
