Rhetorical Wantonness

images.jpg

Why is it that trafficking for sexual exploitation is one of the fastest growing areas of global trade, making billions of dollars for perpetrators and absolutely ruining the lives of women and girls? This brutal industry of selling bodies is being fueled by a growing demand for paid sex with no societal accountability. What sort of toll is it taking? Women are dying, whether literally or figuratively, by the thousands.

Women are being coerced daily into the sex industry. They are preyed upon because of their race, class, addiction, previous sexual assault and other factors. Again, I ask: Why don’t we question this femicide? The press tells us that women are making a “choice” to be prostituted, but don’t be fooled by this rhetorical wantonness.  Watch the words.  Their exploitation is being driven by the growing market demand for sexual access to the bodies of women and children. Please don’t close your eyes to this injustice, but rather speak out against the sex industry and it’s violation of women. For immediate action voice your concerns about legalized brothels to both your MP and Sam Sullivan. Click here for resources.
