I also see an ignorant woman who chose to engage in questionable activity in exchange for monetary gain.
Why do you describe her entirely legal and legitimate profession as "questionable"? What's any more questionable about her line of work than any other kind of performance?
Her incomprehension of the reality of her choices.
What "reality" are you referring to?

The same one we all live in as eluded to above.

I still don't understand what you're talking about. "Invites"? How does her entirely legitimate profession invite anything?

C'mon, crash you know what he's talking about.
It's like the fact that a cashier or a bank teller "invites" getting robbed at gunpoint while at work.
They should know better than to take a job like that.

Oh, I do know what he's talking about. I just want to hear it, explicitly. People seem to take it personally when I elucidate precisely what we all know they're thinking, so the only alternative seems to be playing dumb long enough for them to make it plain themselves.

Oh, of course. I mean, they're right there with all that money! Obviously people are going to be tempted, and we all know that people stop being responsible for their actions when they're tempted by money. Isn't that the law?
No? Oh, I guess it's just men and sex where we completely vacate their responsibility for their own actions. My bad.

Sheesh, it sure took you long enough to come around to realizing the truth, but it's good that you've finally seen the light.

The reality of human nature

I don't think anybody should go through life assuming that they're completely incapable of monstrous acts, because the people who do think they're incapable seem more likely to commit them, simply because while they're committing them, they'll refuse to admit that anything that they're doing is monstrous.
Thats the problem with many pastors. They think that they simply are incapable of comitting any sinful act. What they need to do is realize that they are no better than anybody else.
Sheesh, Crash...sometimes you understand Christianity better than the Christians do!

Well, I was one, for many years. I have the insider's perspective tempered by objective distance - the perfect vantage point.

No it is more accurate an annology to have sympathy for the mountain climber who dies.
Or the race car driver.
Of course it is more convenient to not take responsability for the risks of ones one choices.
I love this because you are very keen to be a champion of abortion and defend the fact that people will have sex and that is just the way it is yet you wish to deny another fact of human behaviour that males have and always will exhibit. This will not change. Therefore when you play with fire....oh well.
Tell me you would walk into Cabrini green in chicago on a hot full moon summer night dressed as a dancer and I might take you seriously.
lol......as a fool lmao

Lmao....K, I have many places for you to come and dance. You will love it! It is a wonderful and wise/perfectly legal and legitimate occupation and I am sure if you champion that view all involved will see the truth of it and admire and respect you.
I am rolling on the floor in fits of laughter!
And of course if something "oh my" unfortunate happend to you all who viewed the situation would commend you on your good judgement.
By the way....a bank teller has security cameras in public with alarms and a host of other safety measures.
Oy that was too easy.
