The quietest Squad member Ayanna Pressley has released her “criminal justice reform” bill, which would do to law and order in this country what the Green New Deal would do to the economy.
I will go through that later in greater detail in later posts.
Her plan is to reduce prison populations by decriminalizing a lot of activities. If they are not crimes, people won’t go to jail for being detriments to society.
One thing that she wants to decriminalize is prostitution.
I don’t understand – being a rational person myself – how someone can claim to be anti-misogyny and pro-prostitution.
Prostitution turns sex into an emotionless service. Sex is deeply emotional. Denying that it has promotes human connection is psychologically damaging.
One night stands and hookups harm people emotionally, especially woman.
Prostitution takes that harm and commoditizes it.
Teaching teenage boys and young men that they don’t need emotional intimacy, and when they are horny they can just go buy some sex takes the empathy and human connection out of it.
It creates sexual sociopaths. This is the underlying problem with overexposure to pornography and porn-addictions.
Women stop being human beings worthy of love and become sexual objects you pay to get your rocks off.
I can’t think of anything that would worsen the equality of the sexes and male/female relationships than the blanket decriminalization and social acceptance of prostitution.
The Left: “Women are not sex objects.”
Also the Left: “You can rent a woman’s vagina for your sexual gratification if you want.”
These are contradictory statements.
I guess my problem is that as a conservative I get cognitive dissonance very badly. I can’t hold contradictory thoughts in my head and be comfortable with it.
Maybe if I didn’t have that I could accept this latest in Progressive [anti]social development.
