Human Traffic Watch

Beyonce’s Clothes Do Not Create Sex Trafficking. Pimps Do.

In Human Trafficking, Sex Trafficking on May 18, 2013 at 11:08 am

Via Feministe, I present to you what may be the world’s worst understanding of what actually causes sex trafficking:

Variations of Beyonce’s body suit can be found in brothels, strip clubs and red light districts across the world – where sex is for sale and it happens to be dispensed through a woman’s body. That she is a human being with feelings and dreams, perhaps a sister, a mother, a leader, a teacher, a student – ALWAYS – a daughter – all of this can be forgotten. In those surroundings a suit like Beyonce’s would look far from glamorous. Maybe just downright heartbreaking as a woman somewhere becomes an object, available for the gratification of a desire – at a price dictated by her ‘managers’.

Next time you’re presented with a shortlist of people in popular culture who you should spend time with or commend, think about how many young girls want to be just like Beyonce: Beyonce who sings ‘Bow Down Bitch’ and wears sheer bodysuits and high heels, singing about making money and being independent.

Remember that in the USA, the average age of a girl when she is trafficked for sex for the first time is 13.

Insert record scratch sound here. Perhaps she did not actually mean to suggest that the existence of pop stars in sexy clothes is actually the cause of forced prostitution, because that would be asinine. But as I read further, no, I discover she actually means it.
