#Metoo movement could spell the end of Nevada's brothel business


End of the road for Nevada’s prostitution business?

Two rural counties home to half of the state’s legal brothels put the matter up to vote on November ballots

MOUND HOUSE, Nev. — Nevada’s legal brothels have a new adversary: the #MeToo movement.

A coalition of women’s advocacy groups in Nevada has undertaken referendum initiatives against legal prostitution in Lyon and Nye counties, opposite corners of the state that are home to about half of the state’s brothels.

Lyon County commissioners voted on June 7 to place a nonbinding question on the November ballot on whether to ban prostitution at legal brothels and agreed to abide by whatever the public decides — effectively preempting the referendum initiative there.

With names like Love Ranch and Chicken Ranch, brothels have been legal or tolerated in much of Nevada for over a century and are as much a part of the Silver State’s image of sin and debauchery as gaming and bachelor parties.

The referendum measures, if passed, would outlaw nine bordellos in the two rural counties located a short drive away from Reno and Las Vegas, where prostitution is illegal. Observers say the measures would serve notice to the state’s remaining 11 or so legal brothels that their days could be numbered, too.

Sad news



We've all got a little bit of royal blood in our veins, we're all in line for the succession, and if nineteen million, four hundred thousand, two hundred and eight people die, I'll be king tomorrow. It's not very likely but its a nice thought and helps keep me going.

It's good to see feminists doing good work by telling other women what they are supposed to be doing.

SWERFs and TERFs (feminists who are anti sex worker/anti trans) are distorted versions of feminism, they also tend to be a**holes.

Feminists seem to be on both sides of the prostitution issue. One the one hand, they don't want the prostitutes being punished because well, women shouldn't be punished. Women can only be victims etc. But at the same time they don't want men satisfying their sexual needs with a real woman.

You idiots, this has nothing to do with feminists or metoo at all... This was put on the ballot by a conservative Christian group called Awaken.
