The United Nations says that we should decriminalize all sex and drug-related activity in the name of human rights, including sex with minors. Oh and they want you to be able to poop on the street. Is this progress?
This comes from a United Nations organization called UNAIDS in a report released on March 8 to honor Women’s Day. It is sort of a best practice suggestion for international communities on how to police “conduct associated with sex, reproduction, HIV, drug use, homelessness and poverty.” The basic suggestion is: you don’t.
This is a strange document but the strangest is Principle 16, which suggests no age limit for consensual sex. It also suggests no criminal penalties for sex work, buying or selling, and no criminal consequences for people who make money from other people’s sex work. We used to call these pimps. Do we still?
The report further suggests decriminalizing all drug use and drug possession as well as leaving homeless people where they are to engage in “life-sustaining activities in public spaces, such as sleeping, eating, preparing food, washing clothes…urinating and defecating, or for other analogous activities in public places.”
And your right to live in places where people do not do drugs, poop on sidewalks, sell other people for sex, and have sex with minors? You don’t have that right, apparently. It sure does seem like the UN favors social collapse, doesn’t it? See our segment about this from Monday’s episode of Redacted.
