12:02 p.m. Look out Supreme Court of Canada !!! … There’s a whippin’ comin’ your way !!! …

In light of last week’s ruling by Ontario Court Judge Susan Himel … The one that struck down three specific laws that were designed to criminalize the procurer , not the hooker , against activity involving prostitution as being ‘ unconstitutional ‘ … I came across several interesting articles on the subject … It did , at first , make me immediately think back to good old Pete’s ( Trudeau ) glorious contribution to this country … The ongoing thought in never ending progress … That wonderful Canadian Constitution of ours !!! … I think this was Pete’s gift to all his fellow barristers … A PERPETUAL SOURCE OF EMPLOYMENT !!! …

It’s interesting to point out that it is perfectly legal to BE a prostitute … OOPS !!! …
… ‘ Sex Worker ‘ ( because that makes it sound much more socially acceptable !!! ) … But anything connected with the potential client IS illegal … WHAT’S THE POINT ?!!!! … To me , it’s a pretty simple case of ‘ two consenting adults ‘ … One wanting to pay for sex … The other willing to engage in sex for that monetary gain … All the crying ex hookers over this decision about how they were ‘ forced ‘ into it shows the basic lack of intellect that abounds throughout our society when it comes to making poor choices … BLAME SOCIETY !!! … The Constitution already protects you from being ‘ FORCED ‘ into doing anything !!! …

Barbara Kay , of The National Post , has several well written articles on the subject and makes a number of valid points ;

One ; There’s two kinds of prostitution … ” The ‘ upper tier ‘ … Escorts , call girls and the like … Where selling sex is freely chosen by calloused souls with no sexual scruples. They may be abused by their johns sometimes , but they are in no danger from the world’s Robert Picktons. In their case the hedging laws have always been easily by passed with society’s sanction. ” …

*Morbnote ; For those who are unaware of who Robert Pickton is , simply Google the name and you’ll find many articles about that piece of work !!! …

Barbara goes on to describe the other ; ” In the pathetic demi-monde of ‘ lower tier ‘ prostitution … Streetwalkers , drug addicts , child – trafficked aboriginal children … It isn’t regulation that is needed. Robert Pickton’s victims wouldn’t have taken advantage of ( or be welcome at ) legal brothels … They need rescue ” …

Terri-Lynne Bedford , who operated a brothel in Toronto that was closed down two years ago , argued that these laws hindered the ‘ safe practice of her trade ‘ and was causing all the problems facing hookeOoops !!! … ‘ sex workers ‘ … She was at the forefront of the battle to try to establish her ‘ profession ‘ as one deserving of respect … A point that Barbara Kay tends to disagree with … ” They want cultural validation of their profession. They want society to respect them . ” … She goes on to reference Jade , ‘ a middle class former hooker ‘ … ” Jade had a management job that wasn’t fun , so she took up prostitution. Jade respects herself , we’re told. This seems to imply that because she respects herself , we should too. Not gonna happen. ” …

In the same National Post newspaper , another columnist , George Jonas had this little line in his take on it ;

” The oldest profession fulfills some obvious needs by letting those who have nothing but money to get some ‘ love ‘ … and those with nothing but ‘ love ‘ to get some money. ” … A social win-win !!! …

That brings me back to my original thought … If both parties are in mutal consent over the ‘ transACTION ‘ ( couldn’t resist folks ! ) … Then it’s of no concern to me … This will , no doubt , have the House of Commons buzzing and scurrying during the 30 day stay that Judge Himel has put on her decision , thereby placing it in limbo before her judgement can go into effect … This is , presumably , to allow the government time to ‘ amend or clarify ‘ the existing laws …

Meanwhile …. Some people are quite ecstatic about the course of events …

*Morbnote ; Why do I get the distinct impression that the two chaps flanking her are frequent customers ?!!! …
