Poll Help Requested from U.S.
URGENT Sexwork Poll
This poll may not be up for long
The O'Reilly factor is the most watched news talk show in the U.S. and while you folks in Canada have it so great legally compared to the U.S., we request your voting in a poll about sexwork laws in the U.S.
Whether or not you are a fan of Fox commentator Bill O’Reilly, I encourage you to log onto http://www.billoreilly.com and answer the current poll question: “Does the US Government have the right to criminalize sexual activity between consenting adults?” This appears on the lower-right part of the page.
Most of O'Reilly's audience is very conservative as he is. He is totally against the idea of sexwork as degrading but he has said people should have the right to what they please in private.
With that bias to the poll of mostly conservative listeners, with 16,000 having taken the poll I am thrilled to see 68% is saying "NO", (the US government does NOT have the right to criminalize sexual activity between consenting adults.
I bet religious right groups or sending notes to folks to vote Yes.
I encourage sex positive folks to make your vote count and vote No.
I suspect the vote will be reported on "The Factor" which has by far the highest audiance of similar talk news shows in the U.S., and it may be a prelude to a show on the pros and cons for the laws against sexwork.
well... I did my bit... and I've noticed that your 68% is up to 72%... people just don't think it is anyone's business what people do in the privacy of their own bedrooms. Here's hoping that this is the beginning of a great movement toward decriminalizing prostitution in your country!!
Great topic! I do not believe the government has that right but they think it is ok to demand sp to be licenced. What a nerve to take our money but look their noses at the business.
Enjoy your day
