Little Barbies: Sex Trafficking Of Young Girls Is America's Dirty Little Secret

Authored by John Whitehead via The Rutherford Institute,

They’re called the Little Barbies.

Children, young girls—some as young as 9 years old—are being bought and sold for sex in America. The average age for a young woman being sold for sex is now 13 years old.

This is America’s dirty little secret.

According to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children,Children are being targeted and sold for sex in America every day.”

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.”

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.

On average, a child might be raped by 6,000 men during a five-year period of servitude.

It is estimated that at least 100,000 children—girls and boys—are bought and sold for sex in the U.S. every year, with as many as 300,000 children in danger of being trafficked each year. Some of these children are forcefully abducted, others are runaways, and still others are sold into the system by relatives and acquaintances.

“Human trafficking—the commercial sexual exploitation of American children and women, via the Internet, strip clubs, escort services, or street prostitution—is on its way to becoming one of the worst crimes in the U.S.,” said prosecutor Krishna Patel.

This is not a problem found only in big cities.

It’s happening everywhere, right under our noses, in suburbs, cities and towns across the nation.

As Ernie Allen of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children points out, “The only way not to find this in any American city is simply not to look for it.”

It is estimated that there are 100,000 to 150,000 under-aged child sex workers in the U.S.

Every year, the girls being bought and sold gets younger and younger.

Social media makes it all too easy for young people to be preyed upon by sexual predators.

As one news center reported, “Finding girls is easy for pimps. They look on MySpace, Facebook, and other social networks. They and their assistants cruise malls, high schools and middle schools. They pick them up at bus stops. On the trolley. Girl-to-girl recruitment sometimes happens.” Foster homes and youth shelters have also become prime targets for traffickers.

With a growing demand for sexual slavery and an endless supply of girls and women who can be targeted for abduction, this is not a problem that’s going away anytime soon.

In fact, this growing evil is, for all intents and purposes, out in the open: trafficked women and children are advertised on the internet, transported on the interstate, and bought and sold in swanky hotels.

Indeed, as I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, the government’s war on sex trafficking—much like the government’s war on terrorism, drugs and crime—has become a perfect excuse for inflicting more police state tactics (police check points, searches, surveillance, and heightened security) on a vulnerable public, while doing little to make our communities safer.

So what can you do?

Educate yourselves and your children about this growing menace in our communities.

Stop feeding the monster: Sex trafficking is part of a larger continuum in America that runs the gamut from homelessness, poverty, and self-esteem issues to sexualized television, the glorification of a pimp/ho culture—what is often referred to as the pornification of America—and a billion dollar sex industry built on the back of pornography, music, entertainment, etc.

This epidemic is largely one of our own making, especially in a corporate age where the value placed on human life takes a backseat to profit. It is estimated that the porn industry brings in more money than Amazon, Microsoft, Google, Apple, and Yahoo.

Call on your city councils, elected officials and police departments to make the battle against sex trafficking a top priority, more so even than the so-called war on terror and drugs and the militarization of law enforcement.

Stop prosecuting adults for victimless “crimes” such as growing lettuce in their front yard and focus on putting away the pimps and buyers who victimize these young women.

Finally, the police need to do a better job of training, identifying and responding to these issues; communities and social services need to do a better job of protecting runaways, who are the primary targets of traffickers; legislators need to pass legislation aimed at prosecuting traffickers and “johns,” the buyers who drive the demand for sex slaves; and hotels need to stop enabling these traffickers, by providing them with rooms and cover for their dirty deeds.

That so many women and children continue to be victimized, brutalized and treated like human cargo is due to three things: one, a consumer demand that is increasingly lucrative for everyone involved—except the victims; two, a level of corruption so invasive on both a local and international scale that there is little hope of working through established channels for change; and three, an eerie silence from individuals who fail to speak out against such atrocities.

But the truth is that we are all guilty of contributing to this human suffering. The traffickers are guilty. The consumers are guilty. The corrupt law enforcement officials are guilty. The women’s groups who do nothing are guilty. The foreign peacekeepers and aid workers who contribute to the demand for sex slaves are guilty. Most of all, every individual who does not raise a hue and cry over the atrocities being committed against women and children in almost every nation around the globe—including the United States—is guilty.

So...The government is corrupt and complicit and not addressing the crimes...The solution is more government?

Is that the takeaway here?

How about ending the family court looting of male wealth and stop destroying the family unit so these girls have furious fathers to contend with?

Cash dad outside, how bout dat?

dirty little secret?

It's been known very well all over the world that American sex slaves is a massive business.

Where in other places in the world, this is a big deal in the media and what outrages people, in America it's the biggest hush hush and all to normal.

Check American porn sites and they even have seperate sections for it.

It's so hypocrit for Americans to act like they didn't know.

The Deep State's hatred of Trump, their non stop irrational attack becomes all the more rational, as you dig deeper into the dark secrets they hide.

Test and prove what pleases the Lord. Have no fellowship with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret.…

Over population creates its' own excess, a group which are neither needed nor wanted. Usually, it is those people least able to care for this group which are most likely to give them up.

Coupled with a consumer society and consumer religion, we develop twisted priorities, some which ensure our personal survival, but allow us to rationalize our actions. Duty to family and community, the bulwarks of civilization, is forgotten in a rush to satisfy our personal desires.

Children and women have ALWAYS been marginalized, it is a function of human societies spiraling out of control. We breed to create wealth, but the wealth is an illusion. We give power to monsters, because they demand it and we capitulate.

As long as we surrender our liberty and responsibility, we will suffer the consequences.

The age doesn't stop at 8 either, it goes all the way to infants.  These pedophiles are all scared because they can see and feel the walls closing in on them.  Marxism will not be able to protect them and allow them to flourish much longer.  There will continue to be huge revelations along these lines and at some point things will explode.  Everybody already hates them as it is but that will get much much worse.

No kidding.  As an American male who isn't interested in buying sex, I found Bangkok to be appalling.  Everywhere I went somebody was trying to pimp something to me.  The expectation was that since I'm male, white and middle-aged, sex with young children was all I was interested in.

They came by that expectation somehow.

Do you really think that ZH poster is a female just because the poster selected a female screen name?

I'd wager that the closest that poster is to a female is a transgender male who hasn't had surgery yet and who wants surgery because HE desperately wants to play the role of female as closely as possible so that HE can be effed by a man but somehow make it seem a little less abnormal. You begin to see how twisted they are when you try to write it out clearly.

In other words, anyone who would make such a demented comment is probably a perverted homosexual male trying to justify his demented perversion.

Why don't we quit lying to ourselves about adult/adolescent sex; while the qualifying adjective "all" is over-generalized, "a substantial majority" is highly accurate.

Once you can the faux virtue-signaling, teen sexual appeal is growing daily. All you have to do is take off your self-righteousness and look around you. Sexually stimulating attire is more and more effective at revealing body shapes and exposing body parts. It's not a lie to say teens, and actually you can say pre-teens as well, are being stampeded into dressing what is commonly called "slutty" by the slutty entertainers who bitch about being hustled by men while doing everything they can to dress and act-out their body movements and speech patterns to get even a second's attention from the target of their sexual broadcasting.

Don't believe me? OK, check out the contents of any British newspaper website and see it for yourself. ( I picked that, not because it is exclusive to that niche, but rather because it is most blatant in that niche. All these site s with their "Recommended for you" click bait are guilty of this activity.)

T & A folks - with a very heavy dose leading up to the Super Bowl using saturation memory stimulation of Jackson's well-rehearsed costume "malfunction" to sexually stimulate interest in an inconsequential waste of time and money, is a nationwide proof of my assertions.

Actually, this play by women to do everything they can to attract sexual targets while simultaneously going ape with victim-hood stories about incidents just happen to correspond to the need of these faded glories, man-hating lesbians, and exploitive media, to reinforce the narrative that heterosexual men are all slimeballs unworthy of a woman's attention (so why don't you just forget them, darling, and sleep with another girl tonight instead . . . no recruitment there, is there . . . ?)

Think about it; what would happen to men who wore their shirts unbuttoned showing off their chests the way women show off their cleavage, wore suit pants slit all the way up to their groin and fanny, had their slacks so tight their genitals would be the male equivalent of a woman's she-can-get-away-with-it-at-work "camel toe," wore their suit slacks hemmed just a few inches below their genitals, and so on, endlessly?

Then when a man checks out this in-your-face-sex-show, he's "harassing her," and she feels "uncomfortable," and he's creating "a hostile work-environment," and all the rest of the destructive double-standards the man-hating lesbian lunatic feminists use to destroy the object of competition for the women these lesbians lust for.

Reality Check: Once a lesbian gets her sexually disoriented foot in the management door, it's open season on every white heterosexual man in the place. "Bitches Inc." is a take-no-prisoners hate fest of OCD Lesbian Lust for every woman they can get their hands on. 

So Eddie, if you are going to live in Virtue-Signaling Land, enjoy the psychotic escape from the Real World.

And please, E S & D as soon as possible . . . you feed the problem with your oatmeal-for-brains posts.

How "Holier than thou" of you . . .

So you never made out with a female under 18 when you were growing up? No hugging to brush her body just to find out what she feels like, thus stimulating you sexually - you hypocritical bastard.

Never got a feel of boobs with your hands, your arms, your chest, or just happened to"bump into" her? Did you ever look down her blouse, of down the arm holes on a sleeveless top? How about that pusquet - did you feel it - or just sneak a peek up her dress to get a sexual rush? Even "go all the way" and have sex (or even sexual teasing, aka "dry humping") with a female under 18 throughout your entire adolescence?

You never got felt up by a female? Never had one rub her hands on your back, or your chest, or your face. or kissed you?

(If your answer to all of those is "No!" you've got to be one God-ugly human, or so sexually fucked up that you need serious psychiatric care . . .)

Or are you gay, and think that doing it with another like-sex as yourself lets you off the hook? (Who was it that tried that "out of the closet when caught" scam?)

And what is your definition of the age at which a woman is just a "child?" In some jurisdictions, it's 21, in others, it's 18, others draw the line at 16 (DC - where your local congress critter can legally sex the pages - as did the old queen Barney Frank), and still others call the age of consent 14, or allow marriage at 12 with a judge's consent.

Until just the last couple of year's there was no age of consent in Japan - you were only arrested if you caused physical damage to your sex partner.

In the Islamic countries, sex at 9 is OK - in the tradition of the Prophet -"Peace be upon Him;" in Europe it's as low as 14 in several countries, and so on.

So where is this magical "child" line at?

Eddie, hypocrites such as yourself are truly disgusting. E S & D.

Oh that's great, not sure about Eddie, but I can tell you're NOT a hypocrite, not a hypocrite at all. You're something else entirely. "Never made out with a female under 18 when you were growing up". What would that indicate other than a normal development? Who would turn that into something sordid other than a sick twisted fuck like you?

you're deranged

I can look at a high- schoolgirls legs and muse how bloody sublime they are. That's human. But the thought of actually availing myself of them, either through guile or force, sickens me with a kind of maudlin grief I'm unclear whether there's a specific word for. 

I'm a man of Christendom. The Lamb of Fucking God. Define yourself by protecting and preserving, not exploiting, innocence
