Spencer Ackerman has been doing some stellar reporting on the who's who among the private security contractors that have gotten a share of the State Department's $10 billion Worldwide Protective Services contract.
Too often when we think about human trafficking, we think of it as a problem "out there." But this year, for the first time, the U.S. State Department included the U.S. in its annual report on trafficking.
Protesters are asking Craigslist to close the euphemistically named "Adult Services" section of their website and set a sex industry-free standard that would help to eliminate human trafficking worldwide and prostitution.
Craigslist has tripled - to $36 million - revenue it receives annually from advertising for "adult" or "erotic" services. Advertising for sexual services now accounts for one-third of Craigslist's revenue.
After numerous conversations with law enforcement officials I realized that most are under the false assumption that some form of movement is required for a predator to be guilty of child sex trafficking.
For better or worse, the word goddess automatically connotes gender, as does the word priestess, and it seems that whenever femaleness is not defined/confined by marriage and motherhood, people start asking "what about the orgies?"
