Craigslist: screw your way to better housing
Finally, something both the Left and Right can bunch their panties over:
MIAMI – Want ads are getting new meaning in the Internet Age, with men posting advertisements for female roommates who can live virtually free, as long they're willing to have sex with them.
One recent posting in the Florida area on the popular Craigslist.com states: "Upscale executive seeks beautiful female 18-24 to live in his luxury condo in Coral Gables for $1/month in exchange for some light duties. Help take care of dog, cook occasionally. Sex 2x/week. Serious inquires only. Please email a picture for consideration."
Now, the only thing novel about this arrangement is that it's being advertised on the Internet...leading to the usual calls for Net censorship....and the usual whines about "enticing young girls who may be strapped for cash" (Miami-Dade Police Dept.) and "offensive and disturbing" (Women's Movement Now).
Now, I would not think much of a woman who accepted such a relationship. A whore is a whore, even if she limits her client base and accepts payment in-kind. But these people don't need protecting from evil men. They enter into these relationships with open eyes. Women (and other humans) ALWAYS have an option to act according to principle, to share run-down slum housing. And if they have the additional option to live in luxury for sex twice a week, well, options are good, are they not?
I don't like these men's behavior, but I absolutely support their right to do what they are doing.
