In a stunning 131-page decision, Justice Susan Himel struck down as unconstitutional three prostitution-related charges — communicating for the purposes of prostitution, operating a common bawdy house and living off the avails — because they prevent sex workers from moving indoors and protecting themselves.

“I have found that the law as it stands is currently contributing to danger faced by prostitutes,” Himel wrote after spending a year sifting through 25,000 pages of evidence.

“By increasing the risk of harm to street prostitutes, the communicating law is simply too high a price to pay for the alleviation of social nuisance.”

So, how long until the government strikes this down?

1 week? 1 month?

I’m all for people being able to do what they want, so I am in support of this, but I know that the government will replace this with different legislation.

And now, just for fun, a quote by George Carlin on prostitution:

“Selling is legal. Fucking is legal. Why isn’t selling fucking legal?”
