Flawed theory – legalizing prostitution will create a healthier environment, less rape and less std’s.
Prostitution IS Sex Trafficking.
While Germany would like to promote itself as being forward thinking and liberal in it’s legalizing of prostitution, I doubt the children and adults of sex trafficking are applauding. I doubt the victims of rape are cheering.
Germany wanted to be progressive. They thought that if prostitution was legal, it would be cleaner. They thought that it would promote better health and less disease among the prostitutes. They wanted the clients to feel more comfortable. They thought legality meant capital competition. They did no research. And now they are one of the world leaders in the business of sex trade.
The perversity of the decriminalization by three women in the German Bundestag has seen the growth of an industry so dehumanizing girls rarely escape. Reports now abound that provide evidence that when prostitution is legalized, trafficking inflows increase dramatically. Those inflows include children. Having full knowledge of the trafficking problems in countries like the Philippines, Thailand and Cambodia, Germany chose to ignore the obvious and go for the resulting $$dollars.
Legalizing prostitution created a taxable revenue stream. Topping $18 billion, Germany has now earned itself fourth position in world prostitution revenue. China is first at $73 billion, then Spain at $26 billion, and Japan at $24 billion. How a country, a government, can knowingly decriminalize an industry that trades and exploits children is unbelievable. At the same time, Germany makes homeschooling children a criminal charge. Hypocrisy at it’s finest.
In Germany, the majority of trafficked girls come from Bulgaria and Romania. The idea that legalizing would create a cleaner, more efficient business has fallen far from its glory. Still, advocates try and taut it as a success given that rape crimes and gonorrhea cases have been driven down. But that simply isn’t so. In fact, Germany has risen to the rank of 8th in the top ten countries for rape as of 2014. And Spain, where prostitution is also legal, ranks 2nd in the world. Sweden, where prostitution is legal for the seller, ranked 3rd..
Rape has also risen dramatically in Denmark, Sweden and Norway. The common factor – in Denmark 50% of the convicted rapists were immigrants despite the fact they make up 10% of the population. In Sweden, 77.6% of the rapists are classified as foreigners ( Muslim immigrants). In Norway 100% of aggravated rapes involving physical violence were committed by individuals of African, Asian or Middle Eastern origin.
It is estimated that only 13% of victims report the crime.
The media is silent, the politicians are silent, fearful that they might become a target, fearful that they might ‘offend’ a culture, fearful that these statistics could create a wave of knowledge whereby citizens actually have access to truth.
What has declined is the conviction rate. Some of our European politicians go so far as to sympathize with the rapist as being a traumatized immigrant who just needs help and a hug…
The notion that legalizing a crime will reduce the ‘act’ is seriously flawed. Legalizing alcohol certainly did not reduce consumption, underage consumption, or over drinking issues.
In places like Cambodia, Thailand, Brazil and the Philippines, the value of human life is low. The value of morality does not exist. Slavery and prostitution are a means to an end, not an industry as proponents would like us to believe, most often not a chosen line of ‘work’, but instead nothing more than a means for survival. Period. The idea that it is anything else is naïve and self serving. Another argument for prostitution claims it is simply ‘a lifestyle’, and we must be tolerant of this way of making a living.
But look at the faces. These are not the faces of choice and lifestyle, these are the faces of slaves.
A sex vacation? Germany offers travel tours for up to eight days inside a brothel, promising 100 sex slaves who will perform anything you want. The latest and greatest escape! How riche, how gauche, how depraved. Who are their clientele?
Koreans continually top the list as the most frequented clients in Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and the Philippines. But they certainly aren’t alone. Sixty to eighty percent of Cambodian men admit to using prostitutes despite having a wife and multiple girlfriends. In Thailand 50% of boys aged 16 and 90% of university students visit brothels. Nearly 65% of young people in Italy want the reintroduction of legal brothels. In Spain, seeing a prostitute is considered an expression of individual freedom.
The thread? The rise of the sex trade is in direct proportion to the internet, and to the psychology of free love. Free love saw the decline of morality. The internet provides discount advertising, free porn sites to get you aroused, and an abundance of girls that tease and tempt. MSN and Fox both aggravate and taunt with headlines of nude selfies. And Hollywood has branded itself as a sex exploitive industry. Money can buy anything in the entertainment world – and in a world without morals, it does. Using prohibition as an example, legalizing alcohol had two impacts; increasing sales, increasing government revenue. Prostitution would be no different.
Busts are rare and although the numbers are high with freeing 106 children or 140 children, the numbers are so insignificant in percentages as to make for no true fear to rise in the hearts of the pimps. Considering that statistics are estimates in this case – the number of sex enslaved children in the US is about 2 million. If 140 are rescued there are still 1,999,860 enslaved.
Does legalizing prostitution do anything for society? It adds revenue to government coffers. We could legalize hit men too, or tax theft, or money laundering, we could legalize fraud and corruption and have a heyday at the bank.
