Super Bowl Sex-Trafficking Hysteria Back in the News

by W.F. Price on January 25, 2012

Greg Zoeller, Indiana’s Attorney General, is making noises about sex trafficking in connection with the upcoming Super Bowl in Indianapolis. It’s a political gimmick that has been used for a couple years now, and has replaced the Super Bowl domestic violence campaign that eventually fell flat when feminist claims about mass beatings of wives and girlfriends during the Super Bowl were exposed as lies.

The Indiana AG has enlisted cabbies in the effort, and they dutifully attended training, which they will ignore if they want to keep their jobs. Calling the cops on paying customers is definitely frowned upon in the cab business, which derives significant revenue from hookers.

“Whenever there’s a large event like the Super Bowl, we know there’s an increase in sex trafficking,” said Valerie Schmitt, coordinator of a human-trafficking outreach effort in Indianapolis. “There’s an increased demand for [commercial] sex and that leads to an increased risk that someone will be victimized.”

On Friday, as a House committee heard testimony on a bill that would ramp up criminal penalties for sex-traffickers in Indiana, Schmitt was meeting with about 100 cab drivers to ask for their help.

She described some of the classic victims of sex-traffickers, including illegal immigrants forced to work off their debts by working as prostitutes or teenagers sexually exploited by adults. She predicted Indianapolis will see an influx of prostitutes, including many who are underage.

“You’re our eyes and our ears …” she told them. “You meet a lot of people and overhear a lot of conversations that might be helpful in recognizing someone involved in [sex] trafficking.”

She asked them to put the human-trafficking hotline phone number of 888-373-7888 into their cells phones and use it if they suspect anything. Some of the cab drivers looked skeptical; while others pulled out their cell phones to program in the number.

What’s really shameful about this campaign, which should rightly be called a crackdown on prostitution, is that it suggests that vast numbers of women will be working the streets against their will. The overwhelming majority of hookers are essentially independent contractors. They go where the business is, and usually that’s where a lot of men are staying in hotels away from their families/girlfriends. The typical underage hooker is a runaway, and serves a lower level of clientele than the men who can afford to stay at hotels and watch the Super Bowl. Underage hookers are also more likely to be male than those over 18, and addicted to hard drugs.

Will some of the prostitutes in Indianapolis be illegal aliens? Certainly, but were they “trafficked?” Unlikely. Most illegal alien prostitutes came to the US of their own volition, and are working as hookers because it’s a high-paying profession that doesn’t require a green card. Where foreign hookers are concerned, the main problem here is illegal immigration, not “sex trafficking.”

When I lived in Beijing, my neighborhood was home to a lot of foreigners, Koreans in particular. Because North Korea is such a mess, large numbers of North Koreans cross the Yalu to live in China as illegal immigrants. Beijing, which has historically been a destination for Koreans in China, is where a lot of them end up. Because of their illegal status, many of the females turn to prostitution. Every six months or so, the local police would do a sweep, and clean out entire apartment buildings full of Korean prostitutes. They weren’t being targeted for prostitution, which is so common in China that the police hardly bother to regulate it, but rather for illegal entry. Even if they were being enticed by pimps, the profit potential could hardly be considered very great given how saturated the market is there. In fact, there are so many hookers in Chinese cities that keeping them out of any given venue is far more difficult than luring them in.

If Zoeller were being honest, he’d admit that this is the real problem faced by Indianapolis: hookers from all the neighboring counties will be coming to town to take advantage of the potential business. Nobody has to traffic them — they’ll come of their own accord. Rather than “victims,” they will primarily be a nuisance. However, they will represent a windfall for the cabbies, who will almost certainly not call the cops on them, even if they are illegal aliens.

Most hookers are trafficking themselves, and the ones that are trafficking others many times are other women who are the madammes. But see the truth would interrupt the flow of federal pork bloating dollars to law enforcement, so law enforcement will keep feeding into the lies and mass hysteria…Their pork bloating depends upon it.

Sex trafficking (note that you immediately assume female) is an urban myth as (I believe) AngryHarry has previously documented, and just as the Witchfinder General pursued a non-exstent category (Witches) so the Indiana Attorney General follows suit. It is of course a form of Misandry as men are targeted as villains and women produced as victims.

The truth of Prostitution (in my personal observation) is very different. They are well paid for what is easy money; they ‘work’ in comfortable surroundings doing something intrinsically enjoyable. Their work is better paid and with easier work than their previous occupation, which frequently seems to have been Nurse. I have never gained the impression that they have a Pimp or are in any way acting under duress.

Perhaps the Indiana Attorney General has something to say something about male Prostitutes. No? I thought not.

“— they’ll come of their own accord.”

Patriarchy oppresses women to the extent they’re not even conscious of it.

If you’re a housewife, you’re oppressed by your husband.
If you’re a victim of DV, you’re oppressed by the “beater”.
If you work for a male boss, you’re oppressed because you’re in a subordinate position to a man.
If you’re a prostitute, you’re oppressed because you really don’t want to do it, you just don’t know that you don’t want to do it.

That’s the POWER of patriarchy and why women are victims of it. They’re so oppressed that they can’t even recognize their own oppression. We’re not saving them from themselves, because they have no sense of “self” with a man controlling them. We’re saving them from patriarchy. It’s patriarchy that must be destroyed, before women can live a free and independent existence without males.

Women would be just as competent and capable as men, if only they were self-aware enough to recognize how men sub-consciously oppress them, using patriarchal mind tricks. Do NOT tell women we do this. It’s just between us guys.

Note to the Indiana’s (pandering to feminsts) attorney general:
The kind of men who can afford a $10,000 weekend to go see a Super Bowl, are not the same kind of men who’ll be trolling the downtown streets or Craigs List looking for “young female victims to prey on”. Even the pimps and ho’s around the country have that much business sense.

But if you have an eye on the Governers office, it sure looks good when you develop a record of sticking up for “female victims”, for whatever reason. Placate the feminists. Keep them on your side OR ELSE. And of course the media will oblige you if spreading misandrist feminist propaganda is involved.

“…or are in any way acting under duress.”

Of course they’re under duress, but they’re under so much duress that they can’t possibly realize they are. How do you otherwise deny it? Clever isn’t it? (This is the synthesis of Critical Theory and Feminism in action.)

It’s not the women themselves, it’s the evil male traffickers and pimps and the evil beer guzzling brutish male superbowl fans. The prostitutes are innocent young victims that the government needs to rescue and protect, because they’re being held captive or brainwashed and simply don’t know any better. They’re somebody’s daughter for God’s sake!

This is a very longstanding lie, and they’ve been telling it about major sporting events at least since the 2000 Olympics. They always confidently predict that tens of thousands of women will be trafficked to sexually service fans, and it’s always proved false – but it doesn’t seem to stop them dusting the lie off and repeating it at the next sporting event. Here’s a very good article on Spiked Online about the phenomenon:

http://www.spiked-online.com/index.php/site/article/8324/

What it reminds me of is the fraudulent child sex abuse scares of the 80s and 90s, which have had the long-term effect of creating automatic suspicion of men taking any interest in children. This is a deliberate campaign to falsely associate large gatherings of men with the sexual abuse of women.

I wonder if Mr. Zoeller can connect the epidemic of sexual predation to the overly sexualized culture to which the super bowl firmly endorses a la the dorritos ad. He might want to start there…where practically all the major sponsors that make the super bowl possible continue to leverage ever more depraved acts via their adverts. Never mind trying to stop what is already in place (prostitutes) using inefficient methods i.e. cab drivers…an effective counter measure might be to engage the feminist-loving corporations and tell them that racier and racier ads will likely arouse some men and that might make them more prone to solicit a prostitute. ?

So if you ask a woman for a date that’s “harassment”, if you ask a 2nd time that’s “stalking”, if she goes on the date and she gets any economic benefit that’s “human trafficking” if you have sex after she has had so much as a single sip of alcohol, that’s “rape”.

How nefarious their plan is. It is already done, the herd believes what it will believe and that is that they are under attack by hordes of Asian, Middle Eastern and Fat Old White men coming for their daughters.

It was always the same. In the late 1800′s they used “trafficking of women” to make prostitution illegal, agian, because women couldn’t make such a decision…..it’s well, it’s…….un-Feminist (female, american).

Then in the early 20th century it was used to attack mixed race couples. Many jazz artists wrote songs about it.

It seems like a natural fear that the herd has.

Fear of being culled from the herd and taken to another herd, and, not even knowing it happened.

Girls can be like that. At least those that know girls know it, and, that would be girls….in this case the top law inforcement official in the land.

Now isn’t creating a public panic against the law?

Watch guys, the next secret law that will be announced, without debate, will be that only men can be guilty of prostitution.

– The only victims I see are the clients of prostitutes. Plus all men in the general populace, once again branded by the hype and hysteria de’ jour (of the day) by the master propagandists.

– While “they” being tax-free capitalists.
And Zoeller is not being honest.
Surely any attorney general, or any paid government worker allegedly professing knowledge of prostitution and ‘sex trafficking’, anywhere,
would have access to legitimate data, anytime, that reveals the more truer picture of the trading of sex for money. Most prostitutes, with many not possessing a useful skill-set, are drawn to the allure of potential “easy money”. But these promulgaters of trendy misinformation are not looking in that direction. Gotta maintain that pretense.
Better to appease the freedom restricting (uni-)brow-beaters, right?, than actually reveal the truth. People are more likely to become victimized and loose their jobs when they don’t tow the politically orchestrated yet phony feminist line.

This whole subject provides a great illustration of the power of language. By referring to it as sex trafficking, politicians fall over themselves to come up with ever more draconian penalties. What we should be doing is referring to it everywhere we can as ‘Superbowl fraud’ and highlighting how many of the purveyors are in the DV industry and thus expect to gain access public funds from their lies. See how immediately the onus shifts?

Furthermore, I can’t imagine that there isn’t an absolute wealth of evidence to document conspiracy to defraud. Oh how I’d like to see their faces of when they received a discovery notice ordering them to hand over all emails. Over to you, Opus et al.

….the Obama White House has signed the food for kids bill and attached rider designating new guidlines for reduction in trafficking of women.

Then two months later a headline will read. Male Politician X was charged with inciting prostitution, a new guidline designed to reduce trafficking.

Also in the bill is incentives to reduce arrests and increase aid directly to women caught being lured into sex for money.

I was definately not disregarding your warnings or observations. Strange things do appear to be increasing. As men commenting on a men’s blog it’s quite clear to most here why measures, such as the one in question, continue to manifest themselves regularly. The utilizing of various tools to over regulate human behavior.

My laughter was intended more toward the absurdity of this draconian nonsense occuring to begin with and not necessarily toward the possibility of it not happening at all.
I stand corrected, however, and thank you both for taking the time to do so. But to my own defense I did not rule out the possibility of similar farce not arriving here.

This so bizarre because the real trafficking going on is in male bodies.

Yes, NFL players are bribed with good money and groupies, but most careers last only a couple of years (if not sooner) and many are permanently injured. The colleges and pro teams which exploit them really do own these guys, and can sell them to another team, etc. (Only the few big name stars can get no-trade clauses in their contracts.) Not much work-life balance there. Even in baseball, which is 99% no contact, I’ve noticed how old so many of the players who make it to about forty look. Used up and worn out.

If I were anywhere near, it would be interesting to go down to the Party Zone, talk to people, and see if anyone has even seen or heard of one of these victims being manufactured by the Church of Perpetual Female Victimhood.

I’ve been to a couple of big sporting events (but not a Super Bowl) and think you’d have to go out of your way to find one, though the spin would have you believe they’re ubiquitous.

In one instance I was with some alums, and the school had lined up a designated bar & grill as the temporary local HQ for all its fans; the place was not a secret, but if someone was trying to clean up selling girls they were invisible and thus doing a horrible job of going about their business. The cabbies would have been bored to tears if looking for prostitution was all they were doing.

Guys go for the game, and after a glance even the cheerleaders aren’t interesting. Violence and heated male competition may be sexy to women, but not to men. So this is another case of projection, and them accusing us of having their feelings.

Why say “prostitution” when you can use the serrrrious words “sex-trafficking”. The simpleton media adores it (along with “skyrocketing”. The price of stuff is usually skyrocketing).

The victims are the men being propositioned and sexually harassed by prostitutes.

Although many women join in on the “excitement” of the Super Bowl these days, it’s still obviously a male event. That bothers them so they have to try and dump on it and ruin everyone’s enjoyment by reminding us that men are terrible people and women are victims of something.

You are all right of course that anti-prostitution laws are all about restricting and punishing men with heterosexual tendencies be they bisexual and heterosexual or strait. However, it is also about harming the whores even in countries like Sweden, Norway, Iceland etc. which have the Swedish model which prosecutes the johns(male customer’s of the prostitutes) and not the whores themselves. Even in other countries that leave the johns alone and prosecute the whores, it’s not good. Eventually, expect to see both whores and johns as well as innocent men arrested, prosecuted, convicted and punished for prostitution. It is only a matter of time.

Most heterosexual and bisexual women want to control men, and they know either consciuosly or subconsciously they can’t as long as prostitution exists. Too many homosexual women as well as heterosexual women and bisexual women think that because a higher percentage of men push through the glass ceiling that it’s because the of unnatural unfairness which simply isn’t true. most women only look at the top men, and never look at the bottom men. Women recognize that there are more top men above the glass ceiling who are living well which is true. However they ignore or disparage the other side of that coin which is there are more men below the glass floor who are allowed or pushed through who live in total agony with no relent. Many women and men who oppose prostitution are simply sadistic to men in general and whores and johns specificly for no good reason. They will invent any reason to tell you why we need the control and sadism when we don’t.

Whores are hated because they are the world’s biggest strikebreakers to the Union of Women or Team Vagina. Men especially johns free and empower as well as monetarily enrich whores and whores free and empower as well as give men options. For as much as we go on about how misandry hurts men especially in regards to prostitution today, it also hurts the whores very badly too.

I now believe Uncle Elmer (and my debt is to you forever for revealing this to me, ‘Unc):

Prostitution, strip clubs and pornography are the exploitation of MEN. This is obvious because the men are PAYING. Men (I suspect most of them) who are unable to get their sexual NEEDS met, for any number of reasons all tracing back to the Feminist Great Lie.

Under feminism, male sexual drive and male sexual need does NOT exist. It’s an elephant in the room.

@W.F. Price: “It’s actually not all that funny, because that’s the law in Sweden, Norway and Iceland.”

. . . and the most noticeable effect it has had is to change the clientele base from mostly regular guys looking for a bit of comfort to hard-core criminals who don’t care about breaking a few more laws. Apparently, the women are feeling a lot more pressure to engage in risky sexual activity (b/c their criminal clients aren’t as likely to take NO for an answer (or wear a condom) and because there are fewer potential clients, and hence fewer opportunities to make some easy money), and the rate of violence against prostitutes has risen because they have more encounters with, well, criminals. When sex is outlawed, only outlaws will have sex. If that’s what the Nordic women want, I guess that officially makes Nordic women thug f’kers.

One thing that’s always amazed me about this sex trafficking BS is that we’re supposed to believe that drunken football fans visiting from out of state are hooking up with trafficked sex slaves by the thousands, no, the tens of thousands, yet federal, state, and local law enforcement using sophisticated surveillance and monitoring techniques and beyond-cutting-edge of technology don’t seem to ever be able to find any. So they have to revert to cabbies calling in to the hotline and saying “Ummm, this couple got into my cab after the game. They seemed a little drunk and I think they were talking about going back to some hotel room and having sex.” and that will be characterized as conclusive evidence of sex trafficking.

“What I discovered, in fact, was that these women come to Japan voluntarily and gratefully, knowing what their jobs will be. Very few engage in prostitution, and if they do, they do so willingly…hostesses view themselves as modern-day geisha…”

Oh yea & this interesting number … slam dunks the feminists sex trafficking out of the water …

“…the number of Filipina hostesses…fell 90 percent, from 82,741 in 2004 to 8,607 in 2006. ”

8,607 Out of a population of how many million? Hardly sex traficking …

Also these 8,607 earn so much cash they DONT want to be rescued …

“In a nine-month study in Tokyo in 2005 and 2006, I interviewed 56 Filipina hostesses and worked as a hostess myself. None of the hostesses I encountered wanted to be rescued from their employment.

Most found that migration had made them breadwinners in their families, a position that granted them decision-making power and earned them the respect of their kin.”

Of course they missed out the fact being a prostitute makes their vaginas a living cesspit …

Why would a cabbie or any other businessman call the cops just because he MAY suspect something? Even if the cops just wasted someone’s time in questioning them and not made any arrest that person could sue the cab company. Is the feminist cunt, Valerie Schmitt, going to pay the judgements? I can just picture some older guy with his 18y gf being accused of hiring a whore or some father taking his daughter to see the game. In this case the girls can sue too for defamation and infliction of emotional distress.

Rocco-prostitution is not illegal in England, only streetwalking is illegal. So girls who advertise to get customers or pick them up off the street are not arrested. The age of consent is 16. You always have a few wackos in Parliament who propose all sorts of things so I’d take what you read with a grain of salt.

>>What it reminds me of is the fraudulent child sex abuse scares of the 80s and 90s,

Remember when milk cartons had missing kids on them, and it was claimed tens of thousands of kids were kidnapped by strangers every year? At that time, only 2 (two) kids in my state were missing, stolen by strangers. Not the same year. Historical total.

The FBI finally announced a few hundred kids a year in the whole country were believed to be stolen by strangers.

But, the system they set up is in operation for nasty old men who won’t obey custody orders. Problem is, data I saw at the time was more women snatch kids illegally when they lose custody.

Just a case of ugly hags and miserable men married to them, cock-blocking those having consensual fun.

For some reason, forced prostitution never seemed very viable to me in developed nations. First off I can’t imagine the sex being fun if the girl doesn’t co-operate and then there is the whole logistics of keeping constant guard over the girls 24/7/365 lest they escape. Also there’s already an oversupply of willing prostitutes.

ps: A smart man should just stay away from hookers on superbowel.

In the past 30 years, western women have branded their men – their husbands, fathers, brothers, sons – as pedophiles, deadbeat dads, wife batterers, power-hungry demons, war-mongers, human traffickers, sex harassers. Maybe I’m being overly sensitive, but I sometimes get the feeling that men aren’t liked in western countries.

Where I live the minimum price for some time with an escort is 150 euros (tax free).
The average independent escort has at least 8 clients a week, close to 36 a month.
let us say 35 clients a month for the minimum price 35×150= 5250 euros a month. So a 19 year old girl can have a regular job and then those 5200 euros extra and tax free. Usually of course is even more since they are paid for various extras…

They drive fancy cars and keep the clothes and shoes shops and industry alive. So much for their exploitation…

The London School of Hygine and Tropical Medicine held a conference yesterday, called ‘The Olympics and Trafficking: Myths and Evidence.’

I havent had time to read through all of this yet, but from the executive summary, it looks interesting.

Executive Summary:

Human trafficking is a very serious human rights violation that demands a sustained and holistic response based on real evidence. We are concerned that valuable resources and public momentum are being channelled towards a false link between sporting events and trafficking for prostitution, resources that are needed elsewhere.

Looking at the evidence:

• Trafficking is not the same thing as sex work. There is a difference between women trafficked into prostitution and sex workers who migrate to other countries for work.

• Prostitution abolitionists have argued that large groups of men at sporting events result in increased demand for commercial sex, and that this demand is supposedly met through trafficking women. Anti-trafficking organisations, sex workers rights organisations and other stakeholders have strongly refuted this claim.

• There is a very wide discrepancy between claims that are made prior to large sporting events and the actual number of trafficking cases found. There is no evidence that large sporting events cause an increase in trafficking for prostitution.

Event:

2010 World Cup South Africa

what was predicted? – 40,000 foreign sex-workers/trafficked women would be ‘imported’ for the event.

what actually happened? – South African Department of justice and Consitiutional Development did not find one case of trafficking during the event.

2010 Olympics Canada

what was predicted? – “An explosion in human trafficking”.

what actually happened? – Data is still being finalized, but anecdotal and preliminary reports suggest no trafficking cases were identified and business fell for sex workers.

2006 WorldCup Germany

what was predicted? – 40,000 foriegn sex workers/trafficked women would be imported for the event.

what actually happened? – 5 trafficking cases were found to be linked to the 2006 World Cup.

2004 Olympics Greece

what was predicted? – Increase in trafficking for prostitution.

what actually happened? – No instances of prostitution were linked to the 2004 Olympics.

2011, 2009, 2008 US SuperBowl

what was predicted? – 10,000-100,000 sex workers, invading, flooding, or trafficked for the event.

what actually happened? – Law enforcement observed no increases in sex-work related arrests during the event.

De-constructing a rumour:

Fortunately, more stakeholders are increasingly becoming aware that there is no evidence that large sporting events increase trafficking for prostitution. During previous sporting events, sex workers rights organisations in particular, have worked hard to inject an evidence-based approach and human rights-based approach into anti-trafficking discussions.

There are a number of reasons why an increase in trafficking for prostitution during large sporting events is unlikely:

• Statistically not feasible;

• Short-term events are not likely to be profitable for traffickers or sex workers;

• Large sporting events are not only attended by men; and

• Paid sexual services may not be affordable for most sports visitors.

Despite the lack of evidence, this idea continues to hold great appeal for prostitution abolitionist groups, anti-immigration groups, politicians and some journalists. The resilience of this inaccurate claim could be due to:

• Its usefulness as a fundraising strategy;

• Its effectiveness in grabbing the media and the public’s attention;

• Being a quick, easy way to be seen ‘doing something’ about trafficking;

• Being a more socially acceptable guise for prostitution abolitionist agendas and anti-immigration agendas.

Even if numerous law enforcement and anti-trafficking campaigns have not detected the massive ‘floods’ predicted, the idea may still sound plausible because of:

• Ideas about ‘better victims’;

• Assumptions about sports and masculinity;

• Efforts by prostitution abolitionist groups; and

• Ideas about ‘foreign threats’.

Anti-trafficking campaigns that are based on unsubstantiated claims can cause ‘collateral damage’ or negatively impact the groups they are purported to protect, including:

• Wasting needed resources;

• Misrepresenting people and issues, ultimately undermining anti-trafficking objectives;

• Resulting in increased criminal penalties and human rights violations against sex workers;

• Displacing sex workers and other marginalised groups in city ‘clean-up’ efforts; and

• Attempting to restrict or control women’s travel.

Acting effectively:

More productive ways to deal with the issue of trafficking around international sporting events are:

• Addressing other forms of trafficking and/or exploitation connected to large sporting events, such as migrant workers’ rights in the construction industry, workers’ rights in sport clothing and equipment industries, and the recruitment of young athletes;

• Consulting and collaborating with groups directly affected by trafficking and/or anti-trafficking measures, including sex workers and migrants;

• Raising awareness about people’s rights and options, instead of fuelling fear or pity;

• Encouraging more thoughtful analysis in public discussions around trafficking;

• Offering legal, non-exploitative labour options for migrants;

• Decriminalising sex work;

• Addressing sex workers’ fears of police violence and exploitation; and

• Basing anti-trafficking efforts on evidence, not sensationalism.

The several comments I read about the joking reference to making only men guilty of prostitution seem not to be aware that this has been done in Sweden. A woman can offer sex for money, perform the deed, and take the cash, but then the man is guilty of prostitution while the woman is guilty of nothing. To make her guilty would be to victimize her all over again; while the evil man (redundant I know) who just sexually abused a woman is justly due punishment.

It’s OK, Rocco. No offense taken in the slightest.

Again, my apologies. In this case for the late reply to you. Trying to fit in blog writing and a social life, including a dinner offer and later partying takes time and a toll on what progress that can be made on a men’s oriented blog-site.

Yes, alarm bells should be ringing off their moorings with what is occuring within the rigged game of current sexual politics while we are out working or recreating. Most readership on here are already with it conceptually. In many cases, given the level of passion, talk can often lead to influencing other arenas.

The feminist influence upon the G8 Summits, as you wrote, may seem daunting or challenging to new readers and those learning the men’s narrative at first, which can make things appear hopeless. But it isn’t hopeless in the slightest. With your input and that of many others the younger and older guys get a good look at what’s going on. Finding solutions to a problem starts with knowledge first.

BTW, Rocco. Your brief summary in another thread of how the tax base for female only bureaucracies plus a foundation’s philanthropic donations to female only causes and tying the two together is very important, IMO.
It shows a possible three tier tax allocation. Taxes from the general population (mostly generated by men) go toward financing government bureacracies catering to female concerns, possible tax relief to large established wealthy companies donating to female ascendancy and, finally, tax write-offs to these same wealthy corporate based foundations that focus their generocity upon females only. All mostly footed by the common working man but also mostly by his more wealthier brothers in the (work) forces.
If entirely so the working stiff’s labour, or a portion of it, pays for the perpetuation of fascist feminism whether he likes it or not.
Sounds like a done deal against and entirely hopeless for men and boys. But no. Gotta gather the info and put it all together.

That is more than I make after taxes. There are some business expenses of course but other than that they can keep a healthy amount of that money.

Only problem is with the few prostitutes I knew socially that they waste money like they’ll always earn more while their earnings power declines. They waste it on clothes, drugs and loser boyfriends(/pimps), further deteriorating their earnings power.

None of these problems are the fault of men though. Feminists are just upset that prostitutes lower the price they can command for their vagina, because any man who can buy sex with a desirable women will not have to marry a used up nagging shrew he can’t get rid of.

I sometimes think that all this ‘sex-trafficking’ baloney is more female fantasy, another type of rape fantasy. If women were disgusted by the idea, a Lifetime series on it wouldn’t get the ratings it does, nor would the Oprah programs on it. They’re tuning in and watching it…..

Women who use sex as a whip and a bargaining chip want prostitution outlawed. Their control over their men won’t be complete until they can completely dominate the ‘market’ by getting rid of porn and prostitution. I really don’t think it’s out of concern for the women involved. It’s more indignation about men ‘getting some’ that doesn’t go through them.

I hereby issue this challenge to Zoeller and all others in the law enforcement hierarchy with respect to this year’s Super Bowl: if you fail to obtain the arrest and conviction of at least 5,000 people for sex trafficking or a charge otherwise related to sex trafficking or underaged prostitution, you will resign your job, and make a youtube video stating: “I am an incompetent” XLVI times.

I stopped taking feminism seriously on the day that I discovered slash fiction.

Why? Simple. Slash fiction is mostly written by feminist/feminist-leaning women. Feminists and their sympathisers protest against rape, paedophilia and forcible incest (and see these things in everything that could possibly be seen as sexual, slutwalks being the most prominent example of a feminist protest against male sexuality.) Slash fiction features a smorgasbord of rape, paedophilia and forcible incest among fictional characters (popular examples of preferred couples are characters like the Winchester brothers (Supernatural) and Harry Potter (yes, Harry Potter. There are thousands of pro-feminism women who honestly believe that writing sex stories about Harry Potter is a *good* thing. I’m not even talking about Harry Potter in the last book of the series, I’m talking about full-on stories about Harry Potter from the first book engaging in adult relationships with his teachers.) For a group of people who decry predatory heterosexual male sexuality while using homosexual male sexuality (and heterosexual male sexuality if the man is favored) as masturbation is hypocritical to the point of sickness.

Here are some good links about this myth

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QX4B9KqDl9k

http://www.youtube.com/user/Mythofsextrafficking

Super Bowl 2011:
According to the media hype There was supposed to be hundreds of thousands of under age child sex slaves kidnapped and forced to have sex with super bowl fans. At the Dallas Super Bowl 2011. WHAT HAPPENED TO ALL OF THEM????????????

Well, as I predicted it was all a big lie told by various anti-prostitution groups and the Dallas Women’s Foundation which is a anti-prostitution group that lies in order to get grant money from the government and charities to pay their high salaries. As proved in the link below:

Top FBI agent in Dallas (Robert Casey Jr.) sees no evidence of expected spike in child sex trafficking:
“Among those preparations was an initiative to prevent an expected rise in sex trafficking and child prostitution surrounding the Super Bowl. But Robert Casey Jr., special agent in charge of the FBI’s Dallas office, said he saw no evidence that the increase would happen, nor that it did.

“In my opinion, the Super Bowl does not create a spike in those crimes,” he said. “The discussion gets very vague and general. People mixed up child prostitution with the term human trafficking, which are different things, and then there is just plain old prostitution.”

http://www.dallasnews.com/sports/super-bowl/local/20110302-top-fbi-agent-in-dallas-praises-super-bowl-security-effort-sees-no-evidence-of-expected-spike-in-child-sex-trafficking.ece

This myth of thousands or millions of underage sex slaves tries to make every sports fan a sex criminal. No matter what the sport is, or in what country it is in.

Brian McCarthy isn’t happy. He’s a spokesman for the NFL. Every year he’s forced to hear why his customers are adulterers and child molesters. Brian McCarthy says the sport/super bowl sex slave story is a urban legend, with no truth at all.

I do not like the idea of people getting the wrong information and believing lies, no matter what the topic is. The Sex trafficking, slavery issue is one of the biggest lies being told today. It is amazing to me how people will believe such lies so easily. The media is to blame for this. I wonder why they feel such a need to report wrong stats, numbers and information about this topic without doing proper research.

While this may happen in very rare limited situations, the media will say that millions of people are sex slaves without doing any real research on the topic. Only taking the word of special interest anti-prostitution groups which need to generate money in the form of huge government grants from taxpayers, and charities. These “non profit” group’s employees make huge salaries, therefore they need to lobby the government, and inflate and invent victims in order to get more money into their organizations. If you look into how many real kidnapped forced against their will sex slaves there are, and not just take the anti-prostitution groups word for it. You will be very surprised.
Where are all the forced sex slaves? I would like to meet the millions of slaves and see for myself if they were kidnapped and forced against their will.

These groups lobby the government in a big way, getting Politicians to truly believe their lies.

This is an attempt to over inflate an issue in order to get more government money to these organizations. As a tax payer, voter, and resident I don’t want the government to mislead me.

I would like to see a news organization do a full investigative report on the lies, myths and exaggerated numbers being told about sex trafficking slaves. The articles about the super bowl sex slaves, has been proved wrong many times, but news organizations still report about it, as if it were fact.

Getting huffy posts this morning full of hamster logic like ‘even if it isn’t true, it raises awareness’…awareness of a problem that doesn’t exist. Sigh.

This is the kind of thing that passes for activism lately. Not enough people, supposedly, are paying attention to the problem of human trafficking, so activists dishonestly link it to the World Cup or the Super Bowl. PETA wants to do something about the conditions chickens are kept in, so they picket outside KFC saying that ‘KFC tortures chickens’ when they buy their chicken from the same supplier as Olive Garden and Taco Bell. Using KFC’s name gets them attention, but it’s dishonest to the core, ethically bankrupt.
