Stripping, pornography, and sexual acts that are performed in exchange for food and shelter are also very detrimental to the sex industry. One of the main myths about sex trafficking is that it is a CHOICE. I can tell you from my own experiences that it IS NOT a choice. The reality is not that a child wakes up one day and says “I think I want to be a prostitute today.” There are many things that can make a child more vulnerable to being recruited by a trafficker, and we will get into some of those later on. Sex trafficking is a universal, structured, and organized crime.
Some experts consider that in this case decriminalization is the best strategy, but it should be an advantage for women, who, no matter which way you look at it, are entitled to exploit their own bodies as they want. However, they also claim that pims, customers and other people involved must be punished, as only such kind of strategy can restrain the growth of demand and supply in sex industry. Another negative aspect of legalization of prostitution is that it can promote sex trafficking. The example of Netherlands show that 80% of women were trafficked from other countries, and most of them were from poor countries of Eastern Europe (Raymond, Janice G.). Moreover almost 80% of women involved in sex industry in Germany, the country, which legalized prostitution too, came from South America countries.
In her mind she has already broken the law, but she thinks beyond her crime into the interrupting Creon 's law and preparing herself for the punishment ahead. Antigone is willing to go against the norm because she believes it would ease her conscience and reveal what is just, however this act is violent in itself (Arendt 1969:75). This reveals the struggle between the individual (Antigone) and the state (Creon). Benjamin states above that thoughts are fragments, which carry the relationship between thought and action (1968: 50). This is clear to see that Windston and John’s previous lives come in fragments, it is disconnected from one another, but they can relate to each other.
This paper investigates the negative impacts of legalizing prostitution such as 1) encouragement of prostitution, 2) increase in the incidence of human trafficking and 3) exposure of prostitutes to severe harm such as drug abuse, infection from sexually transmitted diseases and violence, which clearly supports the fact that prostitution should not be legalized. Firstly, legalization of prostitution leads to the impression that it is socially acceptable which further encourages the recruitment of prostitutes. Although it seems like legalizing prostitution may actually control and reduce the number of prostitutes, the case is actually the opposite. The core idea of legalizing prostitution is to impose a sin tax on prostitution to discourage its continuity and also to boost the country’s economy. However, if we think about it practically, those who are conducting illegal prostitution at present will never pay the taxes once they are legalized.
First, the motives of those implicated in ethnic violence may be more involute than simple detestation for an out-group and some perpetrators participate only under duress, and in trepidation of their own lives. Second, the paradigmatic instances of ethnic and nationalist violence are astronomically immense-scale events, elongated in space and time; hence, they differ from the phenomena that gregarious psychologists mundanely study, albeit not indispensably those they seek to expound . Third, convivial conflict is more involute than intergroup partialness and cannot be equated with the outcome of just one psychological process, nor should it be analyzed from just one disciplinary perspective. Authentic-world intergroup cognations owe at least as
It is necessary for those who refuse to accept unjust administration of punishment. Capital punishment is often justified by saying that by executing the murders birth of new murders would be prevented. Executions especially when they are more painful and public create a sense of horror and halts those tempted towards criminality to violate laws. In countries such as Pakistan, India, Afghanistan, Nigeria and New York crime rates are exceptionally high and this affects the population there. The police also works inefficiently in these countries and the criminals easily escape from punishments.
Trafficking in Persons. Human trafficking is considered as modern-day slavery and violates various human rights where the government provides inadequate and inappropriate response to such issues (Anti-Slavery International, 2002, P.1). Human trafficking violates human rights of women and children but the most common one is sex trafficking (Sigma Huda, 2006, P.24). Sex trafficking is part of a patriarchal system making violence against women and girls extremely profitable, targeting women and girls experiencing poverty, discrimination and violence and eventually traumatized, impaired and impoverished them. It satisfies the perpetrators sexually and financially, thereby encouraging the demand and criminal activities that provide the supply
Differing cultures, economics, and religions all make laws complicated to implement, and corruption, cultural interpretations, and different systems of justice make them even more difficult to enforce. The UN protocol is essentially ,on paper, the most effective as its transnational and tries to monitor more than one single countries human trafficking issues although this can be seen as a disadvantage as they can’t focus strongly on one area. (9) The UN protocol has not only prevented human
Although there is some value to the functionalists’ interpretation, it contains several weaknesses. The following review of some aspects of the plot will reveal some of those weaknesses. According to O’Brien (Hale 2013, 82-83), radical feminists argue that the core issue surrounding men and women lies within the domination of sexuality by men. Concerning rape, it is said that women who are virgins are off limits whereas women who are who have lost their virginity are known as “open territory”. Feminists believe that these arguments are absurd and that rape is considered one of the most extremes ways of showing male domination.
Michel Foucault’s The History of Sexuality(1976), indicate that the history of sexuality is the history of oppression .The relationship of sex oppression always as power, knowledge and sex. Sex becomes an object to be oppress because it is unproductive in a capitalism society. The bourgeoisie not allow the workers use energy on sex, since workers’ energy is for production. Therefore, knowledge about sex and talk about it is control by the bourgeoisie. Rubin (1984) stated that “The realm of sexuality also has its own internal politics, inequalities, and modes of oppressing” (p.267).
In the previous paragraph, we understand that the psychological problems trafficking causes can be just as devastating as the physical problems. 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.
There are many challenges faced in Sexual Assault Law. The attitudes of the public towards sexual violence are inaccurate in many cases. Sexual Assault Law is a legacy of legal process based on stereotypes and myths about women and sex. Many myths and stereotypes legally rejected continue to be invoked in trials today. The adversarial nature of the legal system can make people afraid of testifying.
“America’s Unjust Sex Laws” is an editorial published in the Economist that argues that America’s laws for sex offenders is too stringent. The author makes tenacious arguments that gets the reader thinking, however most of the arguments that were made I contest with. “America’s Unjust Sex Laws” argues that the sex offender laws in America are too harsh. It begins by discussing “Megan’s Laws” and the Adam Walsh Act of 2006 to describe the current sex offender laws. The author then goes on to discuss how large the sex-offender registry is in order to support their first point that harsh penalties shouldn’t be imposed for minor crimes.
