Initially I was going to write this week about the transgendered tranny that lured a 10-year-old girl into a public restroom and sexually assaulted her. I was going to write about that because bathroom rights activists insisted that this would never, ever, ever, not once happen if we desegregated bathrooms by gender.
Instead, there’s a court case pending in San Francisco – a city that has more than its fair share of trannies – to repeal prostitution laws in California. The most immediate reaction ought to be the most obvious: why are activists trying to change a law in the court room rather than through legislative or ballot box initiatives?
Oh, that’s right. These are far left activists. The kinds of people that, even in far left San Francisco, can’t turn their agenda over to a legislature or voting public. Instead, the use the courts to make law.
These activists, who advocate for “commercial sex” ask: why is it illegal to sell something that can be freely given away in the first place?
Aren’t these the same type of far leftists that use regulatory extremism to prohibit people from offering all sorts of goods and services without first obtaining a state license to do so? I mean, a farmer could freely give away milk. But it’s illegal to take money in that transaction unless the farmer has complied with a myriad of regulatory requirements.
And what about the “commercial” in the “commercial sex”. How is it that these left-wing activists see no problem bringing commerce and regulation into the bedroom? Aren’t these the same people that hate capitalism, money, and the idea of the individual creating an enterprise and profiting from it?
Think about it. Replace “sex” with “healthcare”, “pharma”, “oil”, or “gun sales”, and what would the left’s reaction be?
How ironic all this is taking place in Harvey Weinstein’s home state.
