With Washington whores running loose and unabated, it was only a matter of time before the concept crossed borders.
One of the stars here, Harry Reid, has apparently succumbed to excesses and is currently hospitalized.

Legalizing and therefore taxing/regulating prostitution and marijuana would only help the economy and health of people and the economy. Alas social conservatives, legislating morality will have none of it, and these people have a disproportionate amount of say in the country’s affairs.

“However, Janine Benedet, who argued before the court for the Women’s Coalition for the Abolition of Prostitution, said Parliament should make pimping and the buying of sex illegal: “There is no constitutional right to buy a woman for sex.’”

Does nobody have a problem with this? It completely disregards that there are male prostitutes and that woman should have the right to choose what to do with their own bodies. Has feminism gone too far?
