A 25-year-old waitress who turned down a job providing "sexual services'' at a brothel in Berlin faces possible cuts to her unemployment benefit under laws introduced this year.

Now we know that if a nation went into another nation and told their women "put out or no food, shelter, etc." the whole world would be up in arms. This is rape!
