A few years ago there was an article about a woman in Germany who was told by the unemployment office to consider sex work (which is legal there I believe).

Thinking about this:  There is little suggestion to reform the oligarchy capitalism we have today.  Now they not only want to exploit young people at work, but also exploit them outside of work.  No mention of strip clubs?  And no mention of doing anything toward the future to get out of the exploited position. 

Better suggestion might be to tell them to look for business/investment opportunities on the side.  Look for ways to build income separate from their primary job.  It wasn't at the forefront of my thinking when I was younger.  Wish it had been.

That would make sense but the left is absolutely obsessed with sex and sexual stuff it’s how they view the world, which explains the utter insanity of the woke crowd.

I think you're right about what's legal there - I saw a "sex store" tucked in among the other businesses when transiting the Frankfurt airport. Not sure exactly what they were selling - probably porn & toys of some type.

But in any case, it's not 1945 any more - today there ARE things going around that a shot of penicillin won't cure.  :facepalm:

Google and Youtube now demonetizing "climate deniers". Soon the only opinions allowed will be the big tech opinions.

I don't deny the climate changes. Without it we wouldn't be here. It will be changing long after we are gone.

So men are only allowed in there in the Summer when it's empty? Then I guess when their toilets back up, they'll have to just live with it for the school year. I don't think there is a big population of trans plumbers for them to call on.

I actually like to see stuff like this. They should spread the word to all the lgtbqx2f7sts people - don't call any "cisgendered" men to fix stuff for you.
