    Yes, I see no reason to judge any of them and you've yet to give me any. Feel free to point out the difference, since I'm having such trouble finding it.

    You can put it as nicely as you can in that fantasy world of yours but that's the way it is and to be honest RIGHTLY SO.
    RESPECT for the women who didn't bend over to their boss and lost their jobs.
    So basically every cheerleader, model, etc. is somehow inferior to you. I doubt you'll find many people sharing your view, saying "that's the way it is" doesn't make it so. And to defend this view you resort to a circular argument - treating them differently is right because it's right? By now I'm pretty sure you're simply trying to intentionally provoke, but for argument's sake, let's continue.

    There was a time when it was 'right' to treat all women as objects. There was a time when it was 'right' to sell and buy people as slaves. There was a time when it was 'right' to separate people based on their skin color. And every single time there were people like you, shouting off the top of their lungs, "that's the way it is and rightly so", who never ask "why? why is this right? what have they ever done to you, me, anyone?".

There are a lot of brothels here in Nicaragua, but from what I hear, they are more like bars that have rooms available to rent by the hour. The girls just hang out, then rent a room when they get a client. The owners of the bar don´t control the girls in any way.

    A LOT, and I mean A LOT of college age girls here prostitute themselves occasionally if they get behind on tuition. In this country, a full time minimum wage type job pays about $100 per month... and there are plenty of older western business men here who will pay that for 1 hour with a college student.

    It really is one of the problems with poor countries... money escalates dramatically. Think of it this way.. a decent cell phone here costs 2 months salary for someone with a generic job ( fast food, grocery store, gardner, housekeeper etc). Now imagine someone in the USA walking down the street with a cell-phone that costs $3000 in the USA...

    Why are you reaching only for the most simplistic answer and then stopping there? Exploring the deeper reasoning behind things such as this is not only more factual, but more interesting.
    1. Gaining influence and affluence usually requires effort on your own part.

    2. Or maybe it's the other way around, capitalizing on the opportunity for easy moolah. If you haven't realized there has been and there is quite a plenty of prostitutes of both sexes.

    3. Social constructs in a situation where the whole premise is built on a social construct, oh my.

    now pimping is something i am vehemently against because most of the time pimps abuse and mistreat their "women".

    Prestige.
    What's prestigious about having sex that is undoubtedly both awkward and bad?

    Hey guys, I porked some slag I paid $35,000 to!

    If you told that story to your friends they'd be embarrassed... both FOR you and to be associated with you.
