OK, understood.

Here's my point: Those who would argue that prostitution should be legalized, or would argue that sex is not the immense act that it is, and that it has been traditionally considered to be, must also be of the opinion that rape is not so large an offense, either.

That is where I was trying to go with it too, but I missed it a little. If prostitution were legal, then some would consider a rape not to be such a bad thing. The victims would not only include prostitutes, and women who were “easy,” but also women who would prefer not to have sex forced on them. But to those who think this way, how about if the victims were infected with an incurable sexual disease? And what if the victims were male?

How do you get from consensual sex (with or without money) somehow being equivalent to rape. There’s so much connective tissue missing there that I just can’t get from A to B.
