Agreed. This is EXACTLY why I don't think much would really change if prostitution were to be legalized in the US.
In other words, I don't think parents would be too overjoyed if their little girls said to them "Mommy, I WANT to be a hooker when I grow up." I don't think parents would brag to their friends "Hey guys! My daughter's a hooker!"
The stigma attached to prostitution would be alive and well, regardless of whether prostitution were legalized or not.
Posted By: London Rayne I would quit if it ever became mandatory that I had to register to be a hooker. Just because it became legal won't stop the stigma.
