I just finished my Gender Ethics class, wherein I had to lead a discussion about prostitution. I will never stop being shocked by how conservative these kids are. Let's just say, they didn't just think that people ought not be prostitutes, they thought that prostitution should be completely and utterly banned in every possible permutation. Why? Because it harms the "morality of the country". Well ... OK. They also continually spoke about it as purely an issue affecting women. I pointed out that 30% of prostitutes in SF are male, and of the female, an estimated 25% are transgendered -- they looked at me like I was ON CRACK. Someone actually pulled out the old saw of "if we let this be legal, then what is to stop polygamy or incest?" WHAT? That is the arguement against Gay Marriage, peawit, and it is a retarded arguement then, too.
They make me feel like a crazy old bawd.
