Olivia G. Nifong Mrs. Gallos English 3 honors 25 March 2018 Sexual Human Trafficking Although it is illegal in the US, people are still trafficking others, and the rate of trafficking continues to rise. Sexual trafficking is a huge problem that needs to be stopped immediately and the statistics show that trafficking is going up more and more every single year. sexual trafficking is a trade of people from one country to another. It is usually done to sexually exploit someone and is usually illegal and without the victims consent.
White slavery correlates to human trafficking, due to helping women and their rights. White slavery means “ the procurement – by use of force, deceit or drugs – of a white woman or a girl against her will for prostitution (“ A Short” p.1)”. Victims are often taken to warehouses that are abandoned, so they won’t get caught . Traffickers will usually take a victim across a border so, the policies jurisdictions don’t make connections. Exploiters claim that, “more than 150 billion each year (“Who Are Human Traffickers” p.1)”.
Prostitution is a problem around the word not just in the US. Some people work as prostitutes because they need to they can’t find job or they feel like they aren’t useful so they find an easy job. However, a large majority of people that are prostitutes are forced to prostitute themselves it’s not really a choice, they are told by the people that they have to else there family could be killed or they might be killed. In the book “The Good Earth” Locust was sold just so that way men could take advantage of her she was only seen as a sex symbol by the people that would go into the tea houseJust like men see women in prostitution.
Another cause of spreading of evil is the ideological, social and economic pressure that has been prevailing in society for years. It promoted the idea that people are free to do anything that gives them pleasure but people mistreat it and start violence, rape intimidation, cruelty, a drug addiction that flourish exuberantly. And this process encouraged abuser to commit an eviler act and don’t feel obligated to face the responsibilities and consequence because of their actions. People don’t much care about the civilization which could make their life more
Human trafficking, or trafficking in persons (TIP) or modern day slavery, is a heinous and widespread crime occurring around the world in nearly every society. Most people often thought slavery was part of the past; however, human slavery is part of our current society and has been an on-going issue around the world. Human trafficking is a type of slavery that involves forced or bonded labour, sexual servitude, child labour, or involuntary servitude all over the world. It is important to note that sex trafficking contributes to more than half of human trafficking and most of these victims are women and young girls. This modern day slavery can happen to anyone, anywhere, and at anytime (Ton, 2012).This literature review of documents and reports
Katie Lane Mrs. Brooks English II Honors 24 November 2014 Solutions to the Global Controversy of Human Trafficking The crime of human trafficking indisputably extends to the farthest boundaries of the world, a transgression that occurs in the most advanced countries as well as the least advanced countries. Human trafficking is exploitation of the human body with more than twenty-seven million victims across the world. Trafficking victims may suffer from sexual as well as labor related exploitation, resulting in sexually transmitted diseases, physical abuse, and unwanted pregnancy. This is a conundrum that does not just affect the United States.
Sex Trafficking is a form of modern day slavery that exists throughout the United States and globally. It is one of the biggest lies in society (Farley et., 2014). The Vanderbilt Law Review indicates that the majority of prostitutes do not enter the prostitution lifestyle on their own free will choice, but instead becomes a prostitute due to a variety of vulnerabilities that both pimps and traffickers exploit. This explains why young women get blindsided and think they are becoming a prostitute when in reality they are a sex trafficking victim (Elrod 2015). When the United States made prostitution illegal, it did not change the mentality of the johns.
To a certain extent the theme rich vs poor can also relate to society. For instance, because the first impressions of the “hood” are always bad, we just assume they are belligerent and bad. However, in reality, people that dress well and have an impressive demeanor is not always good. As people make these assumptions, they often do not see the dreadful and idiotic things they do. For example, Donald Trump had been accused of sexual harassment by eight women and there has been nothing done to help these women.
For instance, Nicolae Ceauşescu was manipulated by his wife. We should not judge a book after its cover or after reading a paragraph. There are criminals and rapists who should be punished for their deeds, but not all men are that way. Moreover, this is a “big, fat” contradiction and this is why most women disagree with the idea that men are not so “worthy” as women. It goes against everything they have done until now because “feminism” means “equality of the sexes”.
Law enforcement do not recognize the minorities they victimize in a way that one should be acknowledged. They view them as troublemakers or nuisances that should be in prison because they are always up to no good. Taylor states, “Within these perspectives, misrecognition shows not just a lack of due respect. It can inflict a grievous wound, saddling its victims with a crippling self-hatred” (Taylor). The perspective that people who practice racial profiling view minorities results in negative effects.
Although an issue may not be obvious to the average eye, it is an issue nonetheless, and one that meets this qualification is sex-trafficking/pimp-trafficking in America. Sex-trafficking is essentially the recruitment, harboring, and obtaining of a person with the intention for commercial sex acts. The victims are dehumanized (majority are young girls, some young boys), treated like cattle, and have a high fatality rate. Unfortunately, prosecuting trafficking, can be difficult as victims are psychologically intimidated to act as witnesses and at times for those prosecuted as “pimps”, the jail time and fines are low compared to what is should be. This is an issue that Floridians should make an effort to stop, as Miami is among the top three
To what extent does gender affect the individuals involved in human trafficking? Human trafficking is said to be the third-largest criminal activity in the world. According to the Department of Homeland Security human trafficking is defined by “A modern day slavery and involves the use of force, fraud or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act” Trafficking especially in women and girls is noting uncommon.
