Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

The July 4th Knucklehead Marathon Part Twelve

Our 12th winner today is the United Kingdom's Justice Ministry. They get the award for the following.

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain is proposing to remove the term "prostitute" from the criminal statutes because it carries too much stigma.

Instead, a new bill that the Justice Ministry has drafted refers simply to persons who sell sex persistently -- defined as twice or more in three months.

"We just wanted to remove the stigma of the label 'common prostitute'," said a spokeswoman for the Justice Ministry.

"It's been around since 1824, so it was a bit outdated. It just wasn't really helpful to label people."
No more calling sex workers prostitutes. Lets call them whores instead, what do you think? I think the stigma would be the same for these men and women. The United Kingdom's Justice Ministry is our 12th Knucklehead winner of the Day.
