Big Business In America

Awhile back in my comment section our conversation turned to underage brides….and then I read a research paper about the industry of underage sex here in America.

On that point I need to correct something I wrote…..I said that Montana was allowing child brides and I was mistaken… is the facts….

Montana law sets the minimum age for marriage at 16 years old with judicial approval and 18 without it. Most states set the minimum age at 18 with exceptions for those between the ages of 16 and 18, according to a recent survey from the National Conference of State Legislatures comparing the marriage laws in all 50 states.

I apologize for passing on bad info…I will attempt to do better.

Underage sex in the US!

This is America’s dirty little secret.

Sex trafficking—especially when it comes to the buying and selling of young girls—has become big business in America, the fastest growing business in organized crime and the second most-lucrative commodity traded illegally after drugs and guns.

As investigative journalist Amy Fine Collins notes,

“It’s become more lucrative and much safer to sell malleable teens than drugs or guns. A pound of heroin or an AK-47 can be retailed once, but a young girl can be sold 10 to 15 times a day—and a ‘righteous’ pimp confiscates 100 percent of her earnings.”

Consider this: every two minutes, a child is exploited in the sex industry.

According to USA Today, adults purchase children for sex at least 2.5 million times a year in the United States.

Who buys a child for sex? Otherwise ordinary men from all walks of life.

They could be your co-worker, doctor, pastor or spouse,” writes journalist Tim Swarens, who spent more than a year investigating the sex trade in America.

In Georgia alone, it is estimated that 7,200 men (half of them in their 30s) seek to purchase sex with adolescent girls each month, averaging roughly 300 a day.

This situation is despicable and yet it is a booming business…..and few Americans seem to care….time for this to come out of the shadows by shining the light of justice (maybe not with this DoJ)……
How does the MSM miss a story like this?
I know why….but do you?

  1. The involvement of so many ‘influential’ men in the underage sex industry guarantees that it will be protected from adequate investigation. And also probably explains why so many thousands of young girls go ‘missing’ in the US every year, never to be seen again. Shocking indeed.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Disgraceful, heartbreaking and disappointing that this goes on anywhere in the world esp USA. Should have full prosecutorial mobilization to shut this down completely.

  3. No argument sexual victimization of underaged kids is on the rise and common sense might suggest some of this is “encouraged” legally because of the age of consent laws in many states. Although because of judicial review and parental “permission” 16 year olds can marry I’m not sure if this situation alone significantly feeds a domestic wholesale sex trade. It’s not like some parents, and the legal system, are giving permission for their daughter to have sex at 16.. they are giving permission for their daughter to MARRY at 16. Could some parents be playing the system for nastier motives? Perhaps accepting money to allow their daughter to “marry”, only to be placing her into a sex trade situation by the “husband”? Of course. How much of that is getting past a judge I have no idea.
    But this is similar to the drug situation…. there would be no drugs if there were no demand for it. There would be no underaged sex trade if there was no demand for it. To understand the complete problem one has to understand human sexual behavior.. and human biology. For example… Nature.. God.. whatever entity you wish.. has included in human evolution young women entering sexual maturity at about 12 years of age. So if that’s the case, why do we set laws for age of consent far later.. like 16 or 18? Well, for a mix of reasons, but generally it’s because our current modern human Western society (not ALL human societies) is built around religious beliefs and a progressive educational work ethic in order for our offspring to fit into the existing culture. 150 years ago on the open plains it was one thing for a 12 year old girl to get pregnant as the newborn contributed to the survival of the family unit, or even the tribe in general. Offspring were the responsibility of everyone.. not just the mother. Life was all about survivability.. food, shelter, and safety from warring neighbors. Our modern lives now are far more complex and women having children has become a more singular responsibility, and surviving in our current times is more about fitting in via following a pattern of education and career growth and decisions to have children require far more responsibility and maturity level that one can only achieve by experiencing life beyond just the physical age of maturity.. hence the idea of age of consent.
    But all that, passing laws, does not eliminate the instinctual propensity of humans.. some humans more than others… to succumb to the attraction of biological sexual maturity. The general populace is thinking anyone eye-balling a hot 16 year old girl is a damn perv and a sick SOB.,, most especially if the observer is way older. Well.. instinctively-speaking there is no “perv”. But as it relates to our current laws.. if the guy acts on his thoughts it’s off to jail he goes.
    What I am saying with all this is that this is not a black & white issue. Making a law does very little toward stifling a million years of instinct. On the other hand… in our current society a 16 year old.. or even a 12 year old.. deciding to have sex or seduced to do so by complicit adults turning them into victims… cannot be permitted.

    1. There are those “pimping” children for their living…..I understand the looking part…I do it…..but those that “pay” for the chance of sex with a child needs to be fried as soon as possible…..That “preacher” Jeffs comes to mind…..he needs to be pistol whipped….chuq
