” 100,000 by the FBI’s last estimate. 78,000 by an independent estimate. These are the ones that are FORCED into prostitution; not runaways, not tossed away children, but FORCED, with ages raging from 9 to 19 being the average.
This doesn’t include the very little children (kids under the age of 9) who are exploited by the sickos in their own home.”
<<Yes, staggering. Sad, but thanks for posting. It is such a big problem, what is being done about this? by what oranizations?
On the local level, more and more cities are adopting special units to target child traffickers and pimps). They are also trying implement stronger sentences for the johns that engage them.
There are also not for profit organizations that work to get the girls acclimated to life outside of "the life", including Children Of The Night and Gems-girls.org.
We haven't even covered boy prostitutes!
PEDOPHILIA EXPERT UNCOVERS ROOT OF BURGEONING BOY PROSTITUTION
NEW YORK, June 9, 2000 (LSN.ca) - Dr. Judith Reisman, the one who uncovered the truth behind the fraudulent sex-data of the infamous sex-researcher Alfred Kinsey, reported recently on the situation of young male prostitution. Quoting sources, Reisman notes that the number of boys in prostitution in America is roughly half a million. One source notes that "boy prostitutes in Times Square outnumber female hookers five to one." Dr. Reisman asks "Why is the American public largely unaware that roughly 500,000 boys sell street sex to adult males of this great nation?"
Dr. Reisman relates this boy prostitution prevalence to the promotion of homosexuality among the young and the absence of media and other coverage on "inter-gay violence". Dr. Reisman points out that a recent report from Seventeen magazine claims that 54% of teens polled in 1999 (versus 17% polled in 1991) now find homosexuality admissible: "Teens today are likely to experiment: 21% ... have fantasized about fooling around with someone of the same sex - and 15% say they have actually done so." Dr. Reisman says that "establishment media and sex educators in the classroom both vigorously promote juvenile homosexual experimentation while suppressing the darker data on inter-gay violence - data on men and boys battered and killed by sex clients, pickups, prostitutes and 'lovers'".
As examples of this suppression, Dr. Reisman points out that while news of the heterosexual killers of Matthew Shepard and Barry Winchell were trumpeted in the news, "the barbaric murder of 13-year-old Jesse Dirkhising by two trusted homosexual friends of Jesse's mother" was covered up. Other cases cited by Reisman include "the rape and decapitation of Adam Walsh, carried out by two homosexual 'lovers'", and "the castration of a Tacoma, Wash., boy a few years ago by a paroled homosexual child rapist.
