Are there lot lizards in truck stops? Of course, but relax, they are not as common as you are lead to believe. Besides, if you have to worry about whether you man/woman would mess with a lot lizard, your problem is not with the lot lizard, it is with the person you have chosen to be with.
If it is any comfort to you, most truck stops DO NOT have lot lizards.
Here is completely differently look at lot lizards and prostitutes
There are lot lizards in truck stops across the country but there are far less lot lizards than most people think. Lot lizards usually are in the same old spots... Oklahoma City, Carlisle Pa, Dallas, Tx, W. Memphis Tn, Ontario, Ca, Jessup, MD INDY, and some other truck stops I am sure. I just can't think of them right now. The places that I named have had girls on the radio since I have been driving over 10 years ago.
Keep in mind one thing. There are tens of thousands of truck stops with no lot lizards. Therefore it is absurd for the general public to assume that lot lizards are an integrated problem for the trucking industry or truckers themselves.
The real situation is that prostitution is an integrated element of life. There are more prostitutes in everyone's own communities than there are in any truck stop.
Many like to think of these women as trash of the earth. The assumption is that these women are just sex driven homewreckers or crackheads just doing their thing.
Lol, ok. well I guess a lot of that is true about some of the women. But there is much more to the picture and if we as a society will not deal with that this problem will continue as it has for as long as it has.
Now there are plenty of women who just find prostitution as an easy cash cow. They see it as an easy hustle instead of working and think nothing of it. The question is why? But those are not the ones I am speaking up for. They are the strongest and most aware and probably has many other options to earn.
There are many other types of women are out there too for many reasons. Many of them are only out here because they have or think they have limited options. They have not been taught to be a productive member of society. When a few things go wrong at the same time they find themselves with only a few choices to survive. Sell drugs, depend on a man or prostitution.
Some are supporting a child, some are supporting a habit. Some are doing the same as many strippers do, using the money to pay for college. Now obviously non of these things makes it dismisses the fact that they are breaking the law and probably ruining some marriages and maybe even some lives.
What I am saying is getting mad about them being out there or even assuming that they are scum is not even close to keeping them from being out there. If you live near one of these truck stops maybe see if you can start some type of program to counsel them and rehab them to a new way of viewing life.
Most of these women are not making easy or light choices to do what they do. They are operating from a limited mind for whatever reason and making a choice from a very few that they see.
Some of the younger women who choose to get out there in the truck stops strictly for the "easy" money are largely convinced by entertainment that this type of behavior is acceptable by society. Prostitution is almost encouraged by popular culture.So that's another reason why this will not be completely eliminated in truck stops or in your communities.
So what is the most effective way to keep the numbers down?
Well, it starts at home. Better parenting helps keep our children from traveling down these paths. Teaching them the tools to be contributing members of society as a productive mature adult gives them options. Bad relationships are something that is common in the background of many of these women. Their own and witnessing the same from their single mom or parents.
Some of yall are in abusive relationships right now and you will have kids that grow up to be adults who engage in risky undesirable activities.
Another way to help clean this up is to educate single parents in impoverished neighborhoods and provide parental training.
Another thing to do is give second chances to women seeking work even though they may have made mistakes in the past. Just as should be done for felons. We need a program to allow the struggling mother with records to be trained in an occupation and given a place to work with participating employers. We all have made mistakes.
My point? Most of these women ended up here because of poor choices that derived from lack of proper guidance in the home at early ages.
If you are ignoring any of your responsibilities in the home then you are likely contributing to many of the problems that come for the children later in life. Prostitution is only on of them.
Oh, one more thing. For the older woman that become prostitutes there are other reasons too that come into play. Particular dead beat dads.
Other woman are wives who were not prepared for the death of her husband and allowed herself to be isolated or loose contact with all her friends and family. (That is not normal in a relationship). So you ladies reading this.....are you dependent?
If your husband died today, will you be taken care of? Do you have skills to be able to work and pay your bills?
Obviously there lies responsibility of everyone to do a little preventive maintenance so that we don't end up having to do things less desirable later in life.
Stop putting up with relationships with clowns who treat you wrong. Especially stop creating families with them. It doesn't make sense.
Stop having children if you can't afford to take care of them including when emergencies arises.
Spouses should ensure that either can maintain the home if one is to leave or die. That means learn some skills for worse case conditions. It's foolish to live 10 years or more in adulthood and not acquire some skill to make money legitimately. But people do.
There will always be a rainy day and there will always be emergencies don't wait until they hit then you must resort to what ever is available to get by.
Ignore these warnings and who knows, you may find yourself a lot lizard one day! Stressed out, strung out, or just looking for an easy way to get money because you never experienced work.
And men.... Take care of your children. This is one of the reasons that some women have resorted to being a lot lizard also.So you talk on the CB about the lot lizards but your wife (or baby mother who you deserted) is at home struggling because you throw your money away on the road.
We need to think of how our actions affect other people and more people can live with dignity instead of suffering with limited options, despair, and fainting hope for peace and prosperity.
Less we live in a world that continues to operate with lost souls seeking happiness and fulfillment in things that only brings disaster and misery as we smile while pretending that we are blameless in it all we must change how we deal with those in need.
Oh, was I supposed to be talking about lot lizards in truck stops. My friends that is but a symptom of bigger problems.
Problems closer to ourselves and our own relationships and communities far before people reach the stage of soliciting or becoming a prostitute in a truck stop or on craigslist.
Bottom line. Nurture your children, protect them from abuse, (so they won't be the next generation of lot lizards) and treat your spouses(baby's momma and baby's father) right (so they won't stray needing money or attention or a way to make a living) and you decrease your chances of being affected by lot lizards.
