Guns and murder are very different. Murder is factually wrong regardless of your framework. Prostitution isn't.
Sex is a very different thing from guns. You can't take sex away from people. You can take guns away.
If you'd mentioned drugs, I would say yes. All drugs should be legalized.
How do you feel about banning alcohol?
The problem I have here, is that it feels like you are setting up a false dichotomy.
Full legalization and the nordic model aren't the only solutions, and there plenty of middle grounds between the two.
>You know why that is?
Sexism is another reason why that is. People view women having sex to be an impure thing, and something to be actively discouraged.
>After Germany introduced full legalization of prostitution in 2003, for example, they saw a 70% increase in sex trafficking within the decade.
The official statistics show the opposite. A decline in sex trafficking since the passage of the law.
"The number of trafficking victims has actually decreased steadily since the mid-1990s. According to a Feminist Ire article, numbers decreased from 1200-1500 victims in the mid 1990s to 600-700 from 2008-11 to 425 in 2013.
Ever more surprising: the German per-capita rate of trafficking between 2010 and 2012 was lower than that in Sweden. This, along with recent criticism of how Norway—a country that also criminalizes clients and third parties, fails to investigate trafficking allegations or provide asylum or relief for victims, draws into question widespread claims that “End Demand” laws are an effective tool against trafficking."
A lot of authors will point out that prostitution isn't actually as legal as you are claiming. Most of the German states have regulations that severely limit prostitution. So federally, it's legal, but in the German states, they aren't as legal.
Anal sex=rape culture.
I'm guessing you have a high opinion of homosexual men, by your argument they are also reinforcing rape culture.
So because the author says it must be so, as well as some flimsy data.
Orgasming is complicated, because different people have different wants and they feel things differently.
Way to simplify a complex issue.
A lot of the issue is
-that you're conflating the entire subject with some very problematic aspects.
It's problematic to conflate the entire subject of porn with human trafficking. It's problematic to conflate porn with rape. Are there problems with how a portion of porn is produced? Absolutely, but conflating that portion with all of it is problematic. It's like saying cars should be banned because some of them are used to move drugs around.
There are a lot of patriarchal issues with how a lot of porn is produced, absolutely. That doesn't mean that porn is inherently patriarchal.
-that you're mixing up complicated correlation with causation
Like the claim that women are having less sex or fewer orgasms. That could be the product of a lot of different things. Like higher work expectations. Women are no longer expected to be stay at home moms, and a lot of women are pursuing actual careers. That could lead to less sex. A lot of these issues are vastly complicated.
Some of these issues could be related to genetics, diet, culture, or something else. All of which are monstrously complicated things.
There is some research showing a few things, but you really want research to be done several times. And you really want the research to be done correctly, and done in a way to try showing the difference between correlation and causation. Without trying to guess at what the causation is.
Correlation is easy. You can find apparent correlations with a lot of things. I saw a correlation between organic food produce and autism rate over the past few decades. That doesn't mean there's any causation between the two things. It might be a random correlation, both of them might be indirectly related.
That's the problem I have with a lot of your studies. A lot of them show that there might be a correlation, but proving that there's actually a causation is much, much harder.
