No, this isn’t the definition, sorry

That set the stage for my many years of human trafficking, defined as forced labor or commercial sexual exploitation and prostitution. Human trafficking is defined as the exchange of money for services that have been obtained by force, fraud or coercion. I firmly believe that one cannot separate human trafficking from prostitution, CSEC (the commercial sexual exploitation of children) and the equally important issue of labor trafficking.

Trafficking is the movement across borders into that involuntary servitude.

A perfect example of this is the fact that my second husband was my first trafficker, forcing me to have sex with other females for money. He also used my addiction as a tool of manipulation to ensure complete control over me and make sure that I did not leave. This lasted eight years.

This is all foul but it’s still not that trafficking.

Is there a solution? When you are talking about an illicit industry as large as human trafficking, one has to acknowledge that there is no one solution to solve this horrific phenomenon. From what I have learned in my many years as an activist fighting human trafficking, I believe that the Nordic Model is one of our best prospects.

Ahh. Thought this would pop up. Why is the solution to criminalise voluntary transactions? Why not, say, distinguish between voluntary and involuntary, that actually being the root of the problem being complained about?

  1. Trafficking is one the main fronts of the CM femmi-freaks war against heterosexual men.

    Some woman is stupid enough -not just to become an addict but to marry a scumbag who pimps her out –allegedly.

    And this means that all heterosexual outlets other than those approved by femmi-scum ( and witch(sic)can cost you the house, the kids, your savings and your future, married or not) must be shut down.

  2. “He also used my addiction as a tool of manipulation …”

    Woman makes herself vulnerable to predator through lack of self control. Isn’t Darwin supposed to sort this out?

  3. Trafficking in this sense, and in the UN protocol relates to trade in persons, and is not defined by movement across boundaries.

    That may not match the common perception, but that is the internationally recognised definition.

    So she’s right.

  4. Darren, you mean this definition : https://www.unodc.org/unodc/en/human-trafficking/what-is-human-trafficking.html

    Seems pretty clear that it’s focused on forced relocations, but enumerates the constituent activities to ensure scumbags can’t avoid the charge by outsourcing the actual transport to someone disposable.

    The relocation component is hugely aggravating because it separates the victim from family and others that could be trusted to help, making it much harder to get out. The coercive parts are perfectly disgusting by themselves, but why ignore the critical features of a crime in favour of a lower common denominator?

  5. Theo will no doubt shout me down again, but the “slavery” narrative is the exact same as they were peddling a century ago under the “White Slavery” slogan, originally coined to link prostitution to Black Slavery and abolitionism. They then blur that into anything they like.

  6. I take your point, Darren, but I still don’t think she’s right. You wouldn’t say a drug dealer is a drug trafficker just because he trades in drugs. Wholesale movement of the commodity is implied in the name. As to the UN, it defines large, bearded youths with trigger callouses as “children” so some salt has to be taken.

  7. Niels, Roue le Jour,

    I don’t disagree with what you’re saying but if Tim’s going to be picky about a definition then it pays to know the definition.

    I appreciate terms are often defined by a lowest common denominator to get agreement and catch edge cases. Her point was her husband “traded” her ( coerced in to sex for money ), which whilst wouldn’t immediately strike me as “human trafficking” due to the lack of a forced significant transport aspect, does fit the definition.

    Darren – “Her point was her husband “traded” her ( coerced in to sex for money ), which whilst wouldn’t immediately strike me as “human trafficking” due to the lack of a forced significant transport aspect, does fit the definition.”

    The point is that she says her husband traded her – “coerced” her into having sex with other women for money. Which is an odd claim. What woman would pay? Does she mean she did lesbian acts for a male audience? Why not say so?

    This is just a pointless abuse of the language.

    Traffickers can sense when someone is vulnerable and I was no exception. I went back and forth, sometimes under the control of a pimp and many times engaging in prostitution just to survive. Although I did not know it, I never even had a choice.

    Can they? How frightfully clever of them. As someone who voluntarily engaged in prostitution, maybe they thought she was someone who wanted to engage in prostitution? But I see a modern therapist has got to her – it is not her fault of course. She had no choice. Right up to the point she did have a choice and chose something else.

    It would be impossible to count how many times I was raped, assaulted, held hostage and almost died.

    Uh huh.

    or fight like hell to get him back and give him the life that we both deserved.

    You don’t deserve a damn thing. You earn a good life. It is not something anyone is entitled to.

    At this point in my life I was a 35-year-old single parent with absolutely no job skills and no work experience to speak of.

    So having grown up in a wrecked family, she is determined to inflict a similar chaotic life on her son?

    We are working to achieve this level of care in San Diego, but have not yet succeeded.

    They have to go a long way to find a girl capable of talking the talk. Suspicious that.

    I am not going to lie: raising a child with autism has been one of my biggest challenges. However, it has also been the biggest blessing of my life.

    Sure. It is all about you honey.

  10. ‘Sex Trafficking’ seems to have replaced ‘Satanic Abuse’ as the cause du jour amongst a foul coalition of feminists and Christian activists.

  11. Julia:

    Yes, what you say is true; but Darwin would also agree that certain organisms–those we call “social”–have also evolved certain more or less instinctual behaviors that operate to protect group members under certain circumstances, Sometimes herd members stand physically massed against predators–other times, adults nudge along juvenile members in danger of being separated from the main body of the herd.

    Raising a child with autism is indeed a great challenge. However it has not caused me (or my wife) to descend into prostitution.

  13. “Why is the solution to criminalise voluntary transactions? Why not, say, distinguish between voluntary and involuntary, that actually being the root of the problem being complained about?”

    Because that’s how the technique works. Authoritarians justify their hatred for (generally innocent) Group A by finding an overlapping Group B that are guilty of something despicable, and then blur the lines. Group A must be regulated because some of Group A are members of Group B, which every right thinking person agrees needs to be stamped on. QED.

    Group A = the prostitution industry. Group B = slavers. Simple!

    You see the technique being used everywhere.

    john77 – “Raising a child with autism is indeed a great challenge. However it has not caused me (or my wife) to descend into prostitution.”

    Assuming her child does have autism. However you seem to have got my point backwards. An autistic child, like any other child but perhaps a little more so, needs a good home. A solid, reliable, trusting home. With two parents. She grew up in a chaotic home marked by child abuse and blames that for her involvement in prostitution. She is trying to raise her son on her own. She thinks this is heroic and it may be. It is more likely to replicate the poor conditions of her own childhood and so deprive her son of what he really needs.
