The Unthinkable Is Happening in Our Own ‘Backyard’
Jenna Elfman

This story is all fear mongering, no substance. The bogeyman of faceless pimps and sexual capitalism is easier to face, right? And this piece is either reducing trafficking down to sex (a small part of the overall trafficking picture) or using it (cheaply) to get people interested in the broader issue. I suspect it’s more like the former here… This reductive rhetoric isn’t helping anyone.

Also, average age of entry 12? No. Please stop throwing this number out. Never again. Most people say 12–14 or just 13 but you had the gall to just pick the low figure. AND! This number has been so thoroughly debunked. Just read for a second outside your bubble.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
