Playing Politics With Prostitution

Our country has moved to a dangerous paradigm shift. The full decriminalization of prostitution, not just the women forced into it, but the men who buy, rape and abuse them for sexual pleasure. Trying to legitimize prostitution and give it approval as an acceptable means of employment is giving way to more insidious behavior in the way society treats women and girls. Prostitution and sex trafficking are synonymous when it comes to the degradation and dehumanization of women. It strips them of all humanity and replaces it with a commodity label along with a price tag. Allowing this law to pass is basically telling every female in this country you don’t matter and your existence is meaningless. The powers in DC are trying to have their cake and eat it to by satisfying the lust of privileged men who are among their ranks or who are and connected to power and using our children to do it.

Washington DC is scheduled to decide on a law that will destroy the lives of countless women and girls, the full decriminalization of prostitution which will in turn elevate sex trafficking, especially for minors. The blinders they’re wearing are a deliberate tactic to justify keeping the DC clients happy. The Jeffery Epstein case was the perfect example of how this government views child sexual abuse and child trafficking. This was a huge network of lawyers, socialites and former victims turned recruiters who tricked and manipulated children into performing sexual acts for Epstein and a host of wealthy, powerful clients. What will full decriminalization look like when another case like this happens? I imagine it will be everyone involved getting off scott-free while their victims have to put the pieces of their lives back together. The traumatization and PTSD that are suffered by all victims of sex trafficking will be whitewashed and disregarded. These are children, someone’s daughter. Her parents were there when she took her first step, learn to ride a bike, had birthday parties with ice cream and cake and friends. Now she is trying to block out memories of her innocence and childhood being ripped from her because adults manipulated her into doing something she never wanted.

This is serious and affects every young woman in this society no matter what socio-economic background you come from. Traffickers are everywhere disguised as boyfriends, friends, authoritative types, pornographers and even family members. How can anyone expect a child to live with a family member who will traffic them for money until their body can’t take it anymore? That’s what full decriminalization does. There will be more missing children, more sexual abuse in homes, foster care and everywhere it’s legal. What are we saying to children? We want you so we can exploit you? If Washington passes full decriminalization of prostitution it’s saying we have no humanity nor do we care what happens to our children. Very telling for a country who loves to point the finger at the human rights abuses of women and children in other countries but can’t seem to to treat there own with dignity and humanity.

White Women vs. The Rest Of Us

We are a country divided. We are a people divided. We are also divided within our gender meaning women, based on skin color and race, are not walking in strength and support while white women are siding with a racist and nationalist ideology that they feel they have privilege in. Four brave and strong congresswomen of color spoke out against unprovoked racist attacks by President Trump and these female soldiers of the far right army came to his defense and supported comments that do not reflect the values most of Americans. Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley all Democratic Congresswomen serving the United States where once again the target of a administration that is adamantly trying to turn back the clock to oppression of women, segregation and whites only establishments.

There is something very unsettling that is happening here. It all started with our elections being tampered with by a white foreign entity that supports the white nationalist movement and obviously partnered up with the American version and has now become the disease that is spreading with no end in sight. Women have always been used for the sake of a male agenda regarding corruption, violence and in this case racism and fear. White women are given a false hope that they actually share in the same privilege that their male counterparts do. When Mike Pence and his band of MAGA supporters stated that they needed to keep their white women safe from these brown men that have come to rape and murder them, I’m sure their hearts skipped a beat with joy. Separating women by color and race is serving the Republican party, those who are white, in way that they feel legitimizes their strategy of taking over the whole country for themselves. Even with all this there is still push back for an America that is all-inclusive a place where you can come from anywhere and live freely. All of this has been under attack for quite some time now.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley toured the camps where migrant women were being held and saw the horrors that were being done to them. They spoke out against it and was met with pornographic images that where dehumanizing along with racist rantings. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib both call the United States home and began doing what most congress people who see issues that need to be fixed do, start speaking out in order to make change. They were basically called terrorists and if they don’t like this country to get out out. If everyone took that comment literally, there would hardly be anyone left here. True Story. Having grown tired of the constant battle, White Republican men decided to fight back with White Republican women who have been groomed to carry the flag of oppression, persecution, racism and sexual assault against all women who are not white and American. They mass together and become focus groups for big media like CNN and are asked questions like “Do you feel the comments made by President Trump against four congresswomen of color were racists?” and of course the answer was a defiant “No.” Which is very interesting considering the man they worship and love considers CNN to be fake news. Did they forget about Jim Acosta?

This is nothing new. Women have always been scapegoats for regimes that are authoritarian and ruled by dictatorship. They’re given false hope and promises, being put on a higher pedestal than other women, being told they are worth more because they are lighter skinned or part of an elite caste. This type of mentality makes it easier for some women to oppress others because they truly believe they are better and worthy of more. This is also they same tactic traffickers use to coerce some women into recruiting girls for the global sex trade. This is the reason why we are now seeing women’s human rights issues take on a different narrative while creating boundary lines of separation. We have white feminism and feminism for women who are not or don’t consider themselves to fall in the category of being “white”. We are divided in how we look at one another as well as how we perceive others who may not fit the mold that some women subscribe to. Not only is time being pushed back, so are our rights as women.

Powerful Men, Pedophilia & Trafficking

The victims of Jeffrey Epstein’s house of horrors finally have justice. Mr. Epstein has been arrested and indicted, if convicted he will face up to 45 years in prison which will amount to a life sentence according to prosecutors on the case. One of his victims, Courtney Wild, spoke out in approval of the indictment and is hopeful there will be a conviction. This is a big victory for all of the victims of Epstein’s exploitation of their youth and sexuality. Enabling pedophiles and giving them access to the innocence of children was something he profited from in many ways. He himself was a benefactor of the exploitative environment he created.

To understand how all of this could happen without anything being done, we must look at the men & women that benefited and contributed to Epstein’s underage sex utopia. There were lawyers, socialites, Royalty, past and present presidents all people who Epstein felt could insulate him from any accountability or wrongdoing. This carefully plotted high end child brothel even came with a madam who recruited these very young girls. Socialite, 57-year old Ghislaine Maxwell has been accused of working with international recruiters to lure young women into modeling jobs, employment in education and a career in fashion when in actuality they were being groomed, it’s pure sex trafficking 101. The most highly visible image that came out of all of this is Epstein with Donald Trump and Bill Clinton who have been said to have been at these “parties” that Epstein threw in his palatial estates. When we look at the systems of male privilege, millionaires and patriarchy we can come to the conclusion that these types of men are positioned to hold power over anything they desire from the unconscionable to the inhumane.

In our society there is a tendency to treat men in power with more leniency than we show others. We tend to overlook the horrific in exchange for how hard he’s worked to get to where he is. Or maybe we just don’t want to believe that a rich man who has so much money would do something like this when he could just have a wife and family. Status and money do not explain the psyche of a man who takes pleasure in exploiting young women and children. Federal prosecutor Alexander Acosta wrote up an indictment that should have put Jeffery Epstein behind bars for life but acquiesced to Epstein’s legal team that resulted in a deal in the form of a 13 month jail sentence and no federal charges. Fortunately for the victims involved in this case, there were those that were not going to let this just go away with a plea deal that did not equal justice for anyone except the perpetrator. When the FBI and the U.S. Attorney’s office stepped in the deal that was made became obsolete and indictments followed.

There are more than likely a lot more names that will be revealed in the coming weeks. The notorious “Little Black Book” holds many more lives in it’s pages that could destroy a lifetime of building a career and reputation that looked respectable but in reality, it was a smoke screen.

One thing we must always remember, sex trafficking is not just bringing women and girls in from other countries, it’s also enslaving the women and girls here in America. Courtney Wild was not from Russia or the Ukraine or even Latvia, she was from the United States as well as several others were. This is not an “other country” epidemic, this is a global one, the US included. When the government puts out it’s annual Trafficking in Persons (TIP) report it isn’t just the countries abroad that are being evaluated, it’s us too and just like so many other places, it’s not getting any better. The Jeffery Epstein scandal could just be the tip of the iceberg into uncovering powerful men who feed their perverse lust with young women and children. Remember, powerful men are no different from other men who may not have the same financial and social privilege and do the same, they just share the same toxic mentality.

Why We’ve Lost All Credibility

Human Rights Fellow

Throughout most of history America was always seen as the beacon of hope, a place for freedom and a fresh start. Boats filled with immigrants came to our shores full of people with hope for a bright future in this new land. For many decades the Unites States has seen many immigrants coming from many different lands to start over or start better. Most of the innovation, businesses and economy can be attributed to hard working people who risked everything and built something that generations to come will understand the struggle. In many countries abroad, coming to America was a dream for many but only realized by some. We were looked at as the land of opportunity, growth and big dreams.

There is a different story that has been written, one that says to the rest of the world you are not welcome. Lady Liberty’s lamp has been snuffed out for the poor, tired and huddled masses. It only burns for the highly educated, white and privileged from Western Europe. This day was a long time coming and now it’s here, the United States of America is closing it’s borders to immigrants and asylum seekers who are from undesirable countries that do not fit the new world order that has taken root. What are the characteristics of these people that are denied entry? For the most part dark skinned, considered unsavory and dangerous a threat to America and it’s economy and all the men are rapists, terrorists and human traffickers. By the way, you don’t have to be dark skinned and from another country to be any of those things but okay. I mean, we have all of that here and a lot of them are white-current administration included. So who pays the price? As always, women and children. The children are carrying the heaviest burden because of the systematic separating, detaining and jailing of minors coming across the border.

It all started in 2017 when migrants fleeing hostile and intolerable conditions in Central America decided to take the long journey to the United States. This was not something that they just decided to do one day just because hey wanted to see new places. This was out of desperation due to political unrest, drug cartels, gangs etc. Women fleeing domestic violence and abuse trying save themselves and their children from a violent husband and father. All seeking asylum and being turned away for reasons that are blatantly unconstitutional. Because the groups that became caravans, were so large and coming in so quickly coupled with the government not having the right resources or not getting the right ones to help these people, decided it was right to separate their children from them. That sent shockwaves through other countries who saw America as a human rights champion. The United States has had many stains on it in recent years but this stain may never wash out.

Fast forward to 2019 and what has been dubbed by many politicians and activists as “Concentration Camps” boasts hundreds of migrant children living in unsanitary and unsafe conditions with not even so much as a toothbrush or comfortable place to sleep. Basic necessities are not a concern to be taken seriously by this government for children who are being put through a nightmare on a daily basis. Older kids taking care of the younger ones while they are trying to process the trauma and duress they are under. Bad nutrition, mistreatment and sexual abuse is how the influx of migrant children is being handled. If you say that you feel for the children coming in then why are you torturing them? The gaslight response to the whole situation is stunning. Between Russia and our elections, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, trying to incite war with Iran, Saudi Arabia and it’s killing of journalists and human rights activists for which the US has a hand in protecting, and now these camps for migrant children, the world hates us. Our credibility is shot. There are actually people now that would not think of coming to America, not even to visit, because they don’t see it as a viable option for opportunity anymore.

We are the youngest country in the world, and now we’re in danger of going down in flames. We do not look much different than other regimes who are adhering to an ethnic cleansing policy with a political agenda in mind. We have come this far to be reviled and chided with people pointing fingers and criticizing. These young children will never forget what was done to them, the world will never forget what America the land of the free, home of the brave did to innocent children, migrants and anyone who does not fit the America first profile.

To Decriminalize Or Not To Decriminialize-That Is The Battle

Human Rights Fellow
Founder/Executive Director
BeaSister2aSister

The latest issue right now in the world of human trafficking and prostitution is the decriminalization of men who buy sex and the women who say it’s a viable line of “work”. States are at odds when it comes to this type of legislation because they want to satisfy the masses, be popular, get votes etc. Let’s get one thing straight, decriminalizing sex buyers while fueling demand is not a popularity contest, it’s a human rights issue. Women have and are being put on the shelf with goods and commodities that can be bought or sold at any amount for any man wanting to use her. Giving buyers all access to to the bodies of women and girls will not stop at those who say this is work for them. It will spill out into communities, teenage girls walking home from school will be taunted and harassed mostly by men who are old enough to be their fathers with the fear of rape. They will say it is our right to do what we want with any female in the streets because the law says so. To even think for a second that decriminalization will only be confined to those who buy sex is farcical at best.

The sex trade has many different moving parts and all of them work together to keep women and children in a subservient state to men. All prostitution, porn and sexual exploitation is designed to service the perverse fantasies of men. This is just another fantasy that will come true if decriminalization passes, the ability for men for to buy, force and rape women at their discretion because they can. This will be a very thinly veiled piece of legislation that will make all the other laws against human trafficking obsolete. Laws that were passed helping victims and survivors will no longer be applicable. It won’t stop there, the lines of sexual abuse, assault and rape will be blurred as well. Decriminalization will bring validity to it being a job but will then make it a career choice for all women while erasing real opportunities that will in turn only be given to men or women who they feel don’t fit the physical “mold” for the sex trade.

Have we not learned anything from countries like Germany and Amsterdam where very high volumes of trafficking, rape, violence and murder of women live? Legalizing prostitution and not adopting solutions like the Nordic Model has cost thousands upon thousands of women their lives, and there’s still more. Women in Germany are told to go look for work in the Red Light District because there is no other work for them at the present time. Is this what women in the United States want to be told when they are out looking for work? Is that what you’re fight for? If men get what they want all of those jobs that women used to hold will be gone. There will be no need for marriage or a family when men can get their needs satisfied without familial or marital responsibilities. This is not a small thing and it reaches into every area of people’s lives even into the most intimate places. There will be no turning back from decriminalization it will be the deciding factor if women live or die while disappearing from society all together.

Los Angeles. The porn capital created by the United States of America. Land of the free, home of the brave, enslavement of women. This country did this. America is responsible for putting women and girls all over the world in bondage, torture and slavery and now they want to put it in a pretty package and call it empowerment or choice. This country is failing the young women and taking away their ability to grow into their full potential to pursue careers that feed their passion-the sex industry is not one of them. If lawmakers want to do something good for women, go after the teen magazines that tell girls it’s better to be professional in oral sex than to go to school and do something you love. Sign into law legislation that protects them and gives better choices and options for girls who have no where else to turn to. Decriminalization is a certificate of death signed by people who have been conned into believing this is what’s best. I hope they can live with the increased physical, psychological and emotional damage they will have brought on to so many women who really want to get out.
