The Immigrant Council Of Ireland has launched a new social media campaign against forced prostitution with the emphasis on stopping child prostitution.
Campaign against forced child prostitution launched - Crime & Law News from Ireland & Abroad | The Irish Times - Mon, Apr 08, 2013
This is ostensibly a laudible if virtually irrelevant endeavour. However, if you contextualise it re the impending introduction of the insane and failed Swedish model of criminalising the punter, we see exactly what it's about!
It's all about confusing male punters who engage in paid for consensual sex with a partner with Paedophiles and other assorted psychotic perverts!
The new law will of course be heaven sent for such psychotic perverts and traffickers because all related activity will be moved well underground! Women working in the industry will be more likely to be subjected to vicious attacks, rape and even murdered! Indeed where a woman has been trafficked (although only a tiny percentage of the overall total! as has been proven in police raids and contact!), she will be forced to engage in much more dangerous activities such as bareback sex due to as we are told will be the decrease in demand!
Real Men Don't Buy Girls! You are damn right they don't! They have been known to rent sexual services from adults willingly offering that!
RE the celebrities such as Ray Foley and Daithi supporting this, well re regular sex with adults, celebs in Ireland would have no problem especially ironically if there they have a perceived link with money! Indeed one thing that absolutely disgusted me but didn't shock me was that after Stan Collymore's well reported physical assault of his partner Swedish Ulrika Johnsonn, he was pictured with a new beur days later!
Another valid point re celebrity support for punter criminalisation is that ala the penalty points debacle, the great and the good and the well connected will always be let away with misdemeanours (even if they are knowingly with a trafficked women or possibly a minor!), the ordinary Joe will not!
For the record, I am violently opposed to the trafficking/coercion of anybody for labour exploitation especially if it's sexual and the the abuse of minors! The Swedish model will definitely make the situation worse and worse for women who have never been coerced and male punters who would never knowingly engage with a trafficked or coerced woman!
