  1. Shocked. A “spa”??? In VT??? Human trafficking? Well, luckily….Burlington will overcome all this by PERMITTING prostitution!!!!!!!!!!!! Brilliant!

  2. These activities will no longer be on the radar of politicians and law enforcement once prostitution is decriminalized. After all, we will not want to harass anybody by surveilling pesky massage parlor/spas. Would such surveillance interfere with a Vermont individual’s “personal reproductive autonomy” – God forbid! And frankly, with law enforcement being so defunded and excoriated over the past few years, who could not consider chopping through the list of crimes to shorten it? It’s time to get our law enforcement funded to the max and, at the same time, tasking qualified departments in the prosecution and incarceration of those found guilty.

    • Nah. Same thing in this era. Playing with words, verbiage, terms, etc. is merely another way of the left getting THEIR way.

      Now just as in Europe and YES, even in Nevada – sex crimes, sex trafficking, and general crime including drugs will simply skyrocket.

      Vermont is SICK. And as a woman, I can tell you that prostitution dehumanizes, demoralizes, objectifies, and devastates females in every respect. It is NOT “empowering” just because radicals say it is.

  3. You see why Burlington and Montpelier are attempting to normalize and legalize human trafficking by “decriminalizing” prostitution. The local “officials” are paid to look the other way while these “businesses” conduct activity that most know is illegal and is part of a global criminal syndicate.

  4. Anyone who believes that decriminalization will reduce or alleviate the human trafficking aspects of this industry lives in the world of rainbows and unicorns. And let’s bring the terminology in line with current gender-neutral language…this was no madam…the gender neutral term is PIMP.

  5. I’m starting my garden now since our money is becoming fiat. Will you screw me for two potatoes and a carrot?
