Domestic Child Sex Trafficking Growing in the U.S.: 'I Got My Childhood Taken From Me'

This is my 100th post on this blog.

100 posts about human trafficking.

Which one will be my last?

I hope to start a series soon on vendors who are either using part of their profit to combat trafficking, are fair trade companies or both.

If there is something specific you would like to see, please leave a comment.

Famous = Entitled?

How often do those with money pay for sex with children? How often do they specifically request children? In the underworld of the sex trade, you can basically "order up" anything you want and a trafficker can get it for you. It is sick, twisted and wrong. Do I know all of the facts of this case? No. Am I involved in prosecuting this? No. However - if it is true and L.T. paid to have sex with a 16 year old girl in the State of New York, I hope they charge her pimp with trafficking and throw everything they can at both men (in the legal sense, that is).

This abomination has to stop. Neither people nor sex are commodities. Neither should ever be for sale. Ever.
