San Francisco prositutes and their admirers have placed a propostion on the November ballot which won’t make completely legal — it is still illegal in California — but will remove local law enforcement’s ability to investigate or arrest anyone for prostitution. If Proposition K passes, it would make San Francisco the first city in the nation to decriminalize prostitution.
Maxine Doogan, founder of the Erotic Service Providers Union (ESPU) helped get it on the ballot, despite internecine battles with the St. James Infirmary (which provides mental and medical support for sex workers) and others in the sex industry.
Doogan misses the good old days of “real hos” and a big street scene, but opponents like the San Francisco Chronicle are concerned that the measure will make the city a magnet for hookers. Given that the recession and the budget shortfalls are going to make vice arrests a low priority for the police, we’re probably in for a resurgence of streetwalkers, anyway. The bill would, however, allow said ‘real hos’ to report violent crime against them without fear of arrest, a big issue for Doogan.
While Doogan is a crazy lady in the mold of Cindy Sheehan (they share office space, coincidentally, and both have/had sons fighting in Iraq), we like crazy ladies. We also like unhurried blowjobs. So like the SF Bay Guardian and others, we’re voting YES on Proposition K.
