Rhode Island laws allow 16-year-old strippers, indoor hookers

There are 86 comments on the Fox 31 KDVR story from Jul 24, 2009, titled Rhode Island laws allow 16-year-old strippers, indoor hookers. In it, Fox 31 KDVR reports that:

The state of Rhode Island has no laws on the books to stop teenagers as young as 16 years old to work as strippers and even "indoor hookers." At the same time, state law prevents 16 year olds from working in jobs where they operate a power saw, work on ladders, or even pump gasoline.

I'm 16 years old and let me say im disgusted.. who wants to strip in clubs when your so young!!! honestly lets think.. girls get so upset when girls or other people pick on them, causing them to either cause suicide or cutting themself.. so why in the heck would you wanna strip in club when all your doing is setting yourself up for trouble. Its degrading and where are your morals?
Its very disgusting how older men get pleasure from the stripping of younger girls..stay faithful and not worry about little young daughters taking their clothes off. How would you feel if it was your own child!?
None of them probably WANT to do what they are doing, its a matter of whether or not they get to eat that night.

Im a 19 year old male and I dont know any girls that age who are stripping but I can tell you as a teenager that any kind of job that pays even 1/4 of a strippers salary is extremely hard to come by. I am NOT encouraging 16 year old girls to strip. On the contrary, I think it is pathetic, BUT I dont know those girls' circumstances. Like I said before many come from broken homes or no homes at all. A job at fast food is not enough to secure any kind of lifestyle. I am sorry to hear what happened to the girls you knew who were strippers but I assure you that is not typical.
I know a young woman who is a stripper. She is 23. She drives a Cadillac Escalade, a brand new Explorer, their garage is full of ATVs and motorcycles, their home is a brand new one in a development and they have a $60000 fifth wheel camper trailer. I assure you I will NOT be making that kind of money by time I am 23.
I'm 30, and I do see your points about the fact that these girls need to make a living, whatever their financial situations. But, for lack of a better solution, they need to look further. I would rather make minimum wage than nothing. I have not ever seen a girl's life turn out well in this field.
Your 23 year old friend who drives an Escalade, an Explorer, and has toys to spare...that money is called "liquid" money. It's (probably, I'm not making judgements,) either paid in loans, or made for cash. I really hope that it's cash. That's how the business works. I don't have liquid money (sitting in my pocket) and I'm still scared to death about my financial situation.
If your friend is making all of this money...fine. But ask her to put some of it into a savings account.
She's got to realize that at some point, the cash is going to run out, and she's got to start living within her means. I'm learning that the hard way right now.
But I digress...
Make your money however you have to, but NEVER give up your dignity because it's an easy way out. I did it...not like this, but it happened, and it's never worth it.

What's an "indoor hooker"?
On the same subject, what's an outdoors hooker?
Is that anything like an environmental lobbyist?
16 is too young. They're still kids.
I think that the minimum age for pretty much everything should be 20. Studies have shown that the human brain doesn't really start maturing until 20-25 anyway, and with kids these days...nevermind.
Make the minimum age 20 for pretty much everything (drinking, driving, drafting, credit, etc.). 20, or until you've graduated from high school and have proven you can accept responsibility.
Kids will be motivated to stay in school and get their license a couple years (or more) early, plus with an education they wouldn't have to take their clothes off to earn a living.

The age of sexual consent is 16 or 17 in most states. 16 year olds are not children, it's human nature to find a 16 year old girl attractive, their bodies are mature and in their prime. A girl's body generally doesn't get any sexier after her teens, it just biology.

maybe in your world a 16 year old is "prime".....that would only fly if you yourself were 16. i am praying to god that you are otherwise that would make you kind of freaky.

It’s not about degrading themselves, it’s not about morals and it’s certainly not about staying faithful. And the girls who do this young or old aren’t doing it because they’re working their way through school as they would like you to believe. It’s about whether or not they get to eat, it’s about survival.
Many of the girls who strip for a living do cut themselves and at some point or another attempt suicide usually by overdosing on drugs or medicine. Many of them even if they succeed in life and get out of the life style end up suffering from depression; the life style affects them for life and it affects their loved ones around them, they are the ones who are the forgotten victims.
I don't understand how you see this as an issue, I'm sixteen and I'd never strip at my age but there are girls who are going to get into bad things. prostitution and what not. I have cousins who are strippers and in a decent business they are kept well away from those things, and most require drug tests, and are happy for the most part. so in a sense it does keep them off of the streets and out of a lot of worse situations. besides, it is no different then sending nude pics. 90% of teenagers do it,and it's not like the men can TOUCH the girls, if they do, however, they are escorted out of the strip club. but that's my input as a teenager(: i know i'm still super immature

not completely, I'm sixteen and I could easily pass for early twenties, because of my body stucture and what i have for maturity(which is more than most teenagers) but i have men who are in their twenties ask me on dates, and even though they don't know my age they find me attractive.

Lots of older men ask out young girls and are shocked of their real age. It happens all the time.

maybe so but i doubt the rest of you is all that matured yet. there is so much more to learn at 16. i dont' care how mature you think you are. please don't be naive.. boys are pigs and would date a 12 year old if they could. i'm sure you're lovely but don't think because your body is structured the right way to attract men now that it won't turn heads when you turn 30. a mature grown up sexy man will see that.... the 20 years olds for the most part are looking for something else entirely.... and a 16 year old is an easy target for them. and trust me, you don't even have to be "structured" for them to notice you.

Let me inform some of the ignorant people who have been posting on this thread.

A pedophile is attracted to pre-pubescent children. They're NOT attracted to 16-year-old girls. A girl is physically fully grown at 16.

Why is it that a girl can work her ass off for minimum wage at McDonalds at 16 but can't shake her ass for good money at a club? It seems to me you're just trying to force your morality onto others by saying it should be illegal.
