The Religious City of Prostitution
Rome, one of the most religious cities in the world, is facing a problem with prostitution. The city is trying to put a “red light” district, which puts all the prostitutes in one area, to save them from exploitation and families from embarrassment.
Some of the inhabitants in the city think it’s not appropriate for young women, wives and children to see prostitutes walk around in the streets. A woman reported that when she took her granddaughter to the park, the young girl returned to her with a used condom in her hand.
The civilians proclaim how prostitution is becoming a big problem, but there are still people giving prostitutes businesses.
Most prostitutes who walk around are transgender and transsexual, which makes people more uncomfortable about this issue. A transsexual prostitute, Nicola, mentioned how there shouldn’t be a “red light” district for prostitutes. By putting all the competing prostitution in businesses in one area is only asking for a massive blood bath. As of right now, there isn’t anything being done about the prostitution issue, but many civilians say that this issue can’t go on like this forever.
I never knew such problems could happen in Rome, but every country has its problems. Since prostitution is illegal in the States, it’s not everyday that you hear/read something about big prostitution issues. The country cannot go a long time without dealing with the civilians’ feelings about the prostitution issues before someone takes matter it their own hands.
People have the right to do whatever they want with their body, and there will always be people who will disagree and have their own opinions about it. However, with a religious city like Rome, the “red light” district might not be such a bad idea. Parents shouldn’t have to worry about what their young children are going to see if they turn down the wrong block. Pimps and other prostitutes may not like the “red light” district idea, but the city is more than just their businesses.
