The author argues that with so many people on the list it makes it hard to distinguish between people who are really threats on the list and those who are not. The second point the author argues is that sex-offender registries shouldn’t be made public because it causes sex offenders to be harassed and even fired from their jobs (“America’s Unjust Sex Laws” 655). The author suggest that the list should be held by the police who could then share it with people who need to know instead of the public having easy access to it (“America’s Unjust Sex Laws” 656).

When people discuss human trafficking, they often are confused as to why the victim didn’t just leave or tell someone. It is an accepted notion that majority of sexually exploited women have a degree of freedom; they are allowed to walk about the streets, allowed to contact “John’s”, and communicate with other women in the same business. However, what people often lack to understand the serious psychological grip that many traffickers have on their victims. In Theresa’s case, she had legitimate reason to believe that her family’s well-being would be in jeopardy if she refused to work or left the Chaldeans.
Daum does this again in her column,”How grievance culture undercuts the fight against rape culture”, Daum explains how rape culture is both a serious and terrifying case but, at the same time it is just a cry for attention. She explains that “The woman who gets drunk at a party and has sex she neither exactly consented to nor exactly resisted is just as much a victim as the clearly brutalized woman.” This is giving to many advantages to women. but like the column,” Time for young feminists to look beyond the mattress and campus rape” Daum says, “ it 's wrong to it 's wrong to "privilege" one kind of trauma over another”. Someone else is having it far worse than you but they are doing something productive with it and in the second column, someone is having a more worst rape then you are.
“The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil but by those who watch them without doing anything”-Albert Einstein Human Trafficking is the trade of humans for the purpose of sexual slavery, forced labour, organs removal, commercial sex exploitation and economic exploitation. Normally, trafficking is done by threat, compulsion, abduction, fraud, misleading, abuse of power, vulnerability, giving payments or benefits to a person in control of the victim .Trafficking in person is a serious crime and dignified violation of human rights .

Chapter eight of my book talks about Sexual Assault. Rap, sexual abuse and assault happens more than we think and not just among women, however, men as well. The odds are that the person who abuses you is likely someone that you know.

The United States prides itself in being “the land of the free” and the “land of opportunity,” yet this is not the case for the many victims of sex trafficking that reside in the U.S. Despite relatively strict legislation and visible media exposure of this crime against humanity, the United States continues to be a destination point for many victims of sex trafficking. Many Americans are surprised that this could happen here despite laws and organizations promoting awareness. A combination of American cultural attitudes toward the sex industry, both positive and negative, the ineffective enforcement of laws, and the high profitability for organized criminals are responsible for the persistence of sex trafficking to the United States.
