Thread: Please write in to Metro Herald letters to protest about criminalising clients!

  1. Default Please write in to Metro Herald letters to protest about criminalising clients!

    At the moment there are discussions in the letters page of the Metro Herald about sex workers.

    Please write in to the letters page to back up people like Vigilant Dubliner and Just another man.

    It's your chance to stand up to proponents of this retrograde law which will criminalise clients of sex workers.

    Of course trafficking is very wrong and should be eradicated but this law takes away peoples rights.

    It will not take up much of your time.


    Just write a few lines even to mail@metroherald.ie

    You can give yourself a make up name.


    Voices need to be heard or else this website will end up just a talking shop if this outrageous law comes in.

    I see you've had an overwhelming response to this :-)

    You are 100% correct. I'll post a letter to that address and copy it here.

    Thanks for the heads up Jack. This is a very important and worrying issue and if the legislation goes through it will ruin escorting in Ireland for both clients and escorts. I will pen a letter to them. The thrust of my argument will be that criminilizing clients will only serve to drive the industry further underground and come under the control of organized crime. Thereby further perpetuating human trafficking.

    I doubt if anyone will listen, but as you've said - we need to have a voice and this is an anonymous way to do it.

    Once again thanks for the heads up.

    Cop Turn off your blue lights!

    women and men are of course equal in any progressive society.
    equal does not mean the same-because they are not.

    the premise that a man has to navigate a relationship, even if
    all he desires/requires is sex is folly!
    then again-take a look around and a look back?

    I'm sure some our non native English language readers are thinking their level of English is not as good as they thought after reading this.

    Don't worry. I haven't got a fucking clue what it means either :-)

    Apologies if I have offended you. It was meant to be taken as a bit of fun.

    I don't normally like to slag someone else's post and use bad language, but sometimes I can be a bit of a cunt !

    Just don't call yourself Seymor Bush or Sukmy Hardon

    Joking aside this is a good idea- let's just try to be factual e.g. point out that law in Sweden has not in reality reduced levels of prostitution but ( to Morpheus' point) quite possibly driven it further into the shadows thus facilitating trafficking!
