Re: TEXAS TO BE FIRST STATE TO MAKE BUYING SEX A FELONY
Good. If you don't have a daughter or little sister you will never understand. Men treat women as "to be protected" which ergo means something lesser, even little boys are supposed to know this. Not gonna comment on the hows and whys and "rightness" of that but nevertheless a competent male is likely to get promoted over an equally skilled/knowledgeable female. They're more emotional which means sometimes the fast paced hustle and bustle can overwhelm them more often. So, every man wants attention from a female or sex therefore, it's an easy job. Imagine getting paid to just lay there and make noises. lol. men cant do that. most anyway.

And also what are the surveillance implications for this? How far does it reach? How vague is the new law? Can they target strippers/strip clubs? Can they target dates and dating apps? A lot more excuses for warrant-less surveillance on calls, messaging, finances, cash withdrawals, GPS, etc

 Quoting: 666-whore killer 72791708


Are you retarded? Just like with drugs, if they legalized it, they could regulate it and keep illicit stuff out of the industry.

Nooo, you and your imaginary friend want MORE police state tyrannical laws. While people are trying to fight current corruption and ridiculous laws, you are out here parading around wanting more laws, more corruption, more greed money, more prisons.

The whole damn world is falling apart, and your misplaced energy and passion is being put towards what consenting adults are doing behind closed doors that has fuck all to do with you and your "friend".
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 79530924


And how exactly is this going to stop prostitution? They will simply go to other states idiot. This ultimately has nothing to do with trafficking of people. It has to do with propaganda, news headlines, and making the state more money with prisoners and court cases
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 79530924

I love the smell of 'limited government conservatism' in the morning! Seriously, THE PRIMARY DRIVE OF ALL LIVING CREATURES IS REPRODUCTION!!! Let's make that a felony offense! How stupid are these neoconvangelical shit-kickers?

LIBERTY and PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY - for better and for worse - are the only way forward for humanity. Some will do stupid, excessive things and die. Others will thrive. That is natural selection, and only an idiot, a leftist or a neoconvangelical would be so arrogant as to presume they are smarter than nature! Texas SUCKS!

Re: TEXAS TO BE FIRST STATE TO MAKE BUYING SEX A FELONY
While many states seem to be relaxing many laws such as cannabis prosecution, Texas seems to be GOING BACKWARDS. Cannabis is still illegal, and now starting in September, IT WILL BE A FELONY to pay for sex with money. Everything's bigger and "better" in Texas (especially the for profit prisons)? What a complete waste of taxpayer and law enforcement time and money. Just another way to fuck people out of money and their life.

"(The Center Square) – A new law that goes into effect Sept. 1 will make Texas the first state to punish sex buyers with a felony.

HB 1540 was filed by state Rep. Senfronia Thompson, D-Houston. It passed both chambers of the state legislature and was signed into law by Gov. Greg Abbott.

The new law creates a separate offense for buying sex and raises the penalty to a state felony subject to jail time. It expands first-degree felony human trafficking to include certain actions related to obtaining victims from shelters or certain residential facilities. It also requires the state to deny some alcoholic beverage licenses and permits if drink solicitation occurs. It also amends provisions governing common nuisance lawsuits relating to prostitution and illegal massage operations, and amends provisions on civil racketeering relating to human trafficking.

The bill also includes a trespassing offense for those who traffic through a residential treatment center. Traffickers are targeting these centers, the House Research Organization bill analysis states, in order to lure and recruit children. The bill gives law enforcement “another tool to combat this through the trespassing statute and by expanding child safety, drug-free, and gang-free zones,” it states.

“Texas is the first in the country to punish sex buyers with felonies, which is a substantial step towards curbing the demand for commercial sex,” Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a statement. “Human trafficking is modern day slavery – targeting vulnerable men, women and children in our communities. I commend our legislature for passing laws that fight this inexcusable offense.”

Can't the hookers just sell a "pencil" to the john?

Hooker: I have a pencil to sell, and if you buy it, I'll show you great appreciation!
John: Ok! <buys pencil for $150>
Hooker: <shows appreciation>

Seems like such an easy work-around, it wouldn't be worth going after.

Sign a "Pre-nuptial Agreement" where she gets MONEY up front?

WHOOPS Felony, for the man, and if you get a vindictive prosecutor who wants to ruin THAT particular man ... off to Prison he goes!!

Don't think it can't happen? There was a vindictive Female Prosecutor in South Carolina(??) a few years back, where SEX between a male over 18 with a girl under 16 was a Felony, but it was LEGAL to get married at 14. She started charging MARRIED GUYS who had married younger women with Felonies - and to make it worse those were Class 1 Felonies (as best I can recall) which are WORSE than many Manslaughter charges.

If the girl got pregnant ... no witnesses needed. The fact she was pregnant in and of itself that the girl had sex with her husband!!

A number of young men went to PRISON in those 2 or 3 rural counties that she was the Prosecutor for!!

Similar type of situation up in Minnesota about 30 years ago where a very successful businessman had a long time girl friend who HE SUPPORTED. It was ILLEGAL in Minnesota to pay for sex and the FEDERAL Prosecutor really hated that guy, so he charged the rich guy with PAYING FOR SEX since he was supporting his girlfriend. The FEDERAL Prosecutor got a conviction ... the guy went to Federal Prison, and it was upheld by the Appellate Court.

Vindictive Prosecutors will use this to go after their political opponents, just like that Federal Prosecutor did up in Minnesota 3 or so decades ago.

The Religious Tards are among the greatest threat to our liberties. Most are a walking billboard for Hypocrisy in my experience, and Texas seems filled with them.
