I'm Really Sorry About Those Thousands Of Dollars

I haven't written anything on Elliot Spitzer because the guy's a tool and even if prostitution should be legal, it's not no thanks to politicians like him. Some of the reactions are downright ridiculous. On the New York Times op-ed page, Melissa Farley and Victor Malarek are upset that Spitzer didn't apologize to the prostitute.

Come again? That's right, he should have apologized to the prostitute because prostitution is not a victim less crime. I suppose it is rather sad when the escort service collects half of that $5,000 being paid for sex. I suppose it's sad to, that according to one story, Spitzer was a good tipper. Do you know how many men would jump at the chance to make $2,5000, plus tips, for having sex? I wonder if Farley and Maralek think the men who would jump at such an offer are as psychologically damaged as all of the women in the sex field.

That op-ed piece is pathetic. This isn't some crackwhore working the streets for chump change because she has no choice. This is a high-class escort. She can pick and choose who she wants to have sex with and she really doesn't have to do anything she doesn't want to. Fact is, street prostitution may be wrong because of the exploitation, but high end escort services are completely concentual and mutually benefitial.

Yeah, if you're trying to make the case that prostitution exploits women, this wasn't the occasion to make it.
