    Pelacuran Dimana? One Law for the Rich! 

    Jakarta Governor Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama is recommending that the city administration legalize prostitution in certain areas…



    “Legalizing a prostitution site would be a solution because no matter how hard we try, we will never be able to eradicate prostitution. It will always exist as long as humans exist.” 


    Ahok’s proposal makes an interesting contrast to the approach of Indonesia’s second-largest city, Surabaya, where the mayor last year ordered the shut-down of one of the oldest prostitution zones. the Doly district. 

    Piala Dunia Dolly? Kupu2 Lawan Fanatik2? Who Needs World Cup Matches? 

    But rather than debate the different approaches, how about the way it’s reported.

    The Jakarta Post accurately notes that the hooker industry operates in plain sight and in various places across the city.

    But then it offers a somewhat selective snapshot of these ‘various places,’ naming three here in Jakarta and one in Bandung.




    There are several illegal red-light districts in Jakarta, including Kalijodo in West Jakarta, Boker in East Jakarta and Bongkaran in Tanah Abang, Central Jakarta.


    • kalijodo Kali Jodo
    • —————–
    • Well, Kali Jodo would be quite a site, or sight, if properly developed, using its potentially picturesque waterside location.
    • But Ahok himself has threatened to have it erased. 

      Aduh! Adieu Kali Jodo? 

    • However, as constituted at present, it is certainly not upmarket, though its little bars do serve a decent beer at a decent price. I know at least one expat who likes to drop by entirely for that reason.
    • I’ve no info on the other two areas, but suspect they too cater for the low end of the market.
    • =========================
    • Hence I am moved to ask why the JP doesn’t name (and shame?) most of the upmarket hotels, 5-star variety, where slappers swarm, especially on ladies’ nights.
    • After 10pm, when they weary of their Blok M endeavours, they arrive in droves, and those hotels are awash with rich foreigners…

      Islamist to Sexy Model: ‘Don’t Thank Me, Thank Allah!” 

    • ….and even the occasional Islamist fanatic party functionary, like the one who became a headline last year!
    • —–
    • falatehan Blok M’s Jalan Falatehan
    • ==================
    • Nor is the intrepid reporter even seemingly aware of Blok M, where many, if not most, bars on Jalan Falatehan teem with kupu2 malam, ‘night butterflies, ‘ who aim to ensnare a moneyed expat.
    • Not all expats here are moneyed by any stretch of the imagination, but in the eyes of the butterflies,and certainly compared to the poor local patrons at Kali Jodo, every foreigner is fairly affluent.
    • stock-illustration-30527208-silhouettes-of-beautiful-pin-up-girls-1950s-style
    • ===================================
    • Nor is there any mention of Jalan Jaksa, a somewhat pale shadow of the night-life hub it was ten to fifteen years ago, but nevertheless a centre for back-packer budget travellers and the less affluent resident aliens, and thus for less avaricious girls on the make.
    • It used to be a lot of fun, but is now being gentrified…boring, yeah?
    • ——
    • If Ahok is serious in his aim to limit prostitution to one official centre, is he going to tackle what happens on those seamy, steamy streets, or in the expensive bars of those glitzy hotels?
    • Doesn’t sound like it.
    • =
    • SATPOL SatPol PP
    • =
    • We see on our tv news, from time to time, ridiculous razia (raids) by SatPol PP civic militia, dragging hapless young (or not so young) ladies off on their trucks.
    • But never yet have I heard of a raid on the fancy haunts of five-star tourists and businessmen.

    He suggested that the city administration provide one apartment building as a prostitution site where visitors would need to provide identification… 


    • Bajaj+Before Bajaj
    • ======================
    • ONE apartment block?

    For a city of between ten and twenty million souls? Queues stretching a mile and a half down the road outside, where irate wives and girl-friends could cruise by in bajaj to spot errant menfolk and hand-bag them?

    Methinks our good Governor underestimates the L.Q. of the  populace!

    But Lust Quotient or not, methinks in reality that Ahok is not expecting to get too far with this scheme. 


    • ahok
    • ———-
    • “I understand that this idea would be impossible to implement, especially in our country where everyone claims to be pure from sin. But if anyone has a better idea, I would like to hear it,” Ahok said.

    If that’s the plan, let’s hope the city would make sure that the ‘religious guidance‘ would be ‘given’ by decent people – not foul fanatics.

    I still shudder at the way West Java Police handed over defenceless children to rabid sectarians for ‘spiritual guidance!’Muslim School Burned by Angry Crowd – Police Enlist IslamoNazis to Counsel Kids! 

    As the old song has it, best be leavin’ well enough alone!

    No Hookers, No ISIS? Bollocks! 

    “Many studies have shown that [recent] terrorist activities can be traced back to past radical movements. Unlike West Java, which once experienced the rise of the Darul Islam movement, East Java doesn’t have such a genealogy,” he said.

    Yes, go back half-a-century and there they were. And West Java teems with sectarian savages, even today. But if East Java can only be exculpated by comparison with the sectarian bigotry that permeates West Java…not saying a lot, really. 

    And who was the ISIS brute who threatened decent Muslims like General Moeldoko and Densus 88 with murder? As we reported, a day or two ago.


    …the man in the video was later identified as Salim Mubarok Attamimi, a milk vendor from Malang, a city located some 90 kilometers south of Surabaya.

    One swallow doesn’t make a summer, true, and most of East Java’s people – like the good Muslim citizens of Tungulagung and those brave young Muslim students in our Tuhan Membusuk post above – loudly reject evil.  

    Even so, let’s not be fooled into thinking that the province lacks its fair share of jihadist scumbags.  

    All the more alarming, then to read Najib’s contorted reasoning, viz. 

    Najib, however, said he believed that the absence of visible “symbols of immorality” in Surabaya had also left Islamic hardliners with no strong pretext to attack the city.


    Dollies at ease           


    “The recent closure of the Dolly [red-light district] by the local administration, for instance, should win praise from these hard-liners instead of violent assaults,” he said, referring to the now-defunct prostitution complex, once the largest in Southeast Asia.


    The ‘hard-liners‘ only use ‘morality’ as an excuse to bully and throw their weight about.  They don’t give a tinker’s cuss about women, whom they regard as second-class citizens.

    We know the horrors inflicted on women and girls of all creeds by the ISIS’s Islamist rape-gang in Syria.

    Similarly, in Surabaya, and East Java, as elsewhere, there’s no reason to suppose IslamoNazis care anything more for moral rectitude than here in Jakarta!. 

    Indecent Assault? ‘If You Don’t Like To Be Touched, Stay Home!’ – Islamist Fanatic

    Does Najib truly expect us to believe that the ‘hard-liner’ success in harassment of little bar girls,  imposition of ‘voluntary’ prohibition, persecution of religious minorities – all music to the ears of intolerants – diminishes the prospects of violent atrocity? 

    Has this ivory tower academic never heard of the Danegeld?

    Always glad of a chance to quote my favourite poet!

    And that is called paying the Dane-geld;

    But we’ve proved it again and again,

    That if once you have paid him the Dane-geld

    You never get rid of the Dane.

    Or, in more modern parlance, give a hoodlum an inch, he’ll be ready to take a mile!.
