For the most part, prostitution is illegal in America and in many other parts of the world. There is good reason for this. Therefore, my first point would be that we should not loosen the law regarding prostitution. It should remain illegal and there should be more regulations to stop this.
First, prostitution demeans women for the most part. To be sure, there are male prostitutes, but the majority of them are women. Hence, to loosen any laws regarding prostitution would be to legalize the demeaning of women and objectifying them. More importantly, we need to regulate the source of prostitution, which brings me to my second point.
Second, we need to target the sources of prostitution. We should actively go against anyone who deals in the trafficking of people. The strictest laws and penalties should be used in this case. This action alone will be a huge step in the right direction, in my opinion.
Third, we should also not focus so much on the prostitutes themselves, as they are often times victims. We need a paradigm shift here. We need to go after the pimps, who manipulate them.
If we did the following, we would be making some good strides.
