    MY RANT FOR THE DAY!
    As long as there is poverty in the world and as long as there is prostitution at all (performed by women who are poverty stricken usually) and men who use prostitutes(often misogynists) who are often condoned by society to do so in the face of the advertising in magazines and billboards in public spaces, even at major train-stations etc. Where children are playing and watching and waiting to grow up into this culture where “Dream girls” “Playmates” and other atrocities are played out OPENLY in the face of our own CHILDREN- there will always be child slavery and prostitution.
    I say child slavery and prostitution are just another notch on the same slippery slope and the same line of culture that allows poverty at all and prostitution at all- I say first protect women from prostitution by ACTIVELY DISALLOWING POVERTY- this will cease the amount of women willing to perform such acts out of desperation to survive, and reduce the amount of families who DUE TO PERSONAL, POLITICAL, AND NATIONAL GREED- MUST SELL THEIR CHILDREN!
    People are so hypocritical, living in a capitalist state that rapes and pillages countries world-wide and where those top world powers act as a dictator and effective slave-master to the other nations in the world- and where in each country individuals strive for wealth and luxury AT THE COST of the labour and poverty of the poor and less well paid both in their own country and world-wide.
    In a world where a man who puts on a suit, walks into a building somewhere in a CBD, no matter what the supposed prestige or pressure of his position, in valued as a human being so much more highly than a man or women who works tirelessly to produce all those goods that that man uses, or to be effectively “locked” in a small box of a room as a retailer, day in day out till their lives end for the cost of a 30c phone call or a local call.
    In a world where one person’s LIFE is VALUED AT THE COST OF A LOCAL PHONE CALL- AND THAT IS IN A SO CALLED WEALTHY COUNTRY INA POSITION CONSIDERED WELL PAID FOR THAT TYPE OF WORK, is it at all suprising that in a poorer country the poor of that country use child slavery and prostitution.
    Here in a “LUCKY COUNTRY”, people work all their lives for just enough PAY to have a place to exist- this is slavery- except at least slaves have a bit more certainty and security.
    People in Australia work day in and day out for just enough to PUT A ROOF OVER THEIR HEADS AND EAT SOMETHING AND JUST A TINY BIT MORE- BUT MOST OF US WORK ALL OUR LIVES TO PURCHASE A HOUSE JUST IN TIME FOR OUR OWN DEATHS WHEN OUR CHILDREN WILL SELL IT AND THEN WORK ALL THEIR OWN LIVES FOR THEIR OWN HOUSE- AND PEOPLE BELIVE SLAVERY HAS ENDED.
    THIS IS SLAVERY! THIS IS SLAVERY! SLAVERY AS DEFINED AS PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT PAID OR POORLY PAID, BUT WHO INEVITABLY HAVE A PLACE TO SLEEP AT NIGHT (A HOUSE) AND FOOD TO EAT, IRONICALLY IN THIS SUPPOSEDLY LESS SLAVERY DOMINANT ERA, MANY PEOPLE ESTIMATE AROUND 100,000 in AUSTRALIA ARE HOMELESS WITH NO PLACE TO SLEEP AND LITTLE TO EAT- IN ESSENCE SLAVES WOULD HAVE A BETTER LIFE. I MYSELF AM HOMELESS, except that I live in a house where I am able to stay due to the sexual nature of my relationship with a man there.
    AS A STUDENT IN THIS COUNTRY I AM BELOW THE POVERTY LINE. I CANNOT AFFORD A PLACE TO RENT, EVEN WITH THE TINY AMOUNT OF GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE< AND CANNOT AFFORD BOOKS EXCEPT THAT A FRIEND PAID FOR THEM THIS SEMESTER, EVEN THOUGH I ALSO WORK PART_TIME WHILE STUDYING FULL_TIME.
    I FIND MYSELF INA POSITION MANY WOMEN IF NOT MOST WILL FIND THEMSELVES IN AT SOME POINT OR ANOTHER- AS ILLUSTRATED SO SUCCINCTLY BY THE ‘BIMBO’ GAME- THE NEED TO MAINTAIN A RELATIONSHIP OF A SEXUAL NATURE SUCH AS MARRIAGE OR DEFACTO LIVING IN ORDER TO SURVIVE FOR THEMSELVES AND OR THEIR CHILDREN.
    I MYSELF AM FORCED INTO A KIND OF PROSTITUTION. I AM FORCED FOR THE SAKE OF MY OWN SURVIVAL TO STAY IN A SEXUAL RELATIONSHIP WITH A MAN WHO IS EFFECTIVELY THE LANDLORD- IN THAT THE CONDITION FOR ME STAYING HERE IS A SEXUAL RELATIONSHIP. IF NOT FOR MY OWN POVERTY AND DESIRE TO FINISH UNIVERSITY- I WOULD NOT HAVE TO BE HERE.
    SO I SAY WHERE-EVER THERE IS A PROBLEM, START AT HOME- LOOK AT YOUR OWN FAMILY, COMMUNITY, STATE AND NATION. LOOK AT THE COMPANY YOU WORK FOR, LOOK AT HIGH END EARNERS AND CORPORATIONS THAT MAKE AN UNREASONABLE PROFIT AT THE ULITMATE COST OF CAUSING WORLD_WIDE SUFFERING< POVERTY< DESPAIR< CRIME< DRINKING PROBLEMS< etc. Etc. Etc. SO FOR IN ORDER FOR ME TO ESCAPE POVERTY AND BETTER MYSELF THROUGH EDUCATION I MUST EFECTIVELY PROSTITUTE MYSELF. I KNOW OTHER WOMEN WHO HAVE ENDURED THE SAME.
    do something about all that, and you will effectively wipe out the majority of child slavery and prostitution. Don’t counsel the homeless, poverty stricken or poorly paid man/women/child or band-aid the problem after its happened- actually do something about stopping it happening repeatedly and forevermore.
    Look at the state of human culture, the kind of politics playing out in wealthy and powerful nations and the misogynistic, greed stricken, culture and individuals that causes these problems-
    OTHERWISE ENOUGH WITH THE BLEEDING HEARTS AND CONTINUE AS YOU ALREADY ARE- AND ENJOY YOUR LIFE IN A LAND WHERE OTHERS LIVES (THROUGH LABOUR AND BAD PAY) AND BLOOD (THE WARS THAT RAPE AND PILLAGE LITERALLY AND ECONOMICALLY) PAY FOR YOUR PLEASURE. DOn’t be hypocritical.

    i completly agreed with wht you are saying .. people have to stop being hypocritical and start taking action to stop this nonsence ! just an advice if i was in your place, didnt have a place to stay, not enuf cash and working so hard to complete your education. i would never sell my self for anything in this world.. there are alot of places you can go to, anything you can do but not this. your dignity and self respect sud be something which is higher then anything, i know it is easy to talk and hard to do. But it is possible. i cant say that i understand wht your goin through coz im not going through it but if i was this is somthing i would never do. wish you the best in life and always do what you feel good about and dnt degrade your self. take care and please feel free to relpl.

    For me its quite simple. Human society permits these kind of things because few people really care. There are thousands of escuses not to care. In the end of the day its a poor 3 year old if not less that pays the bill. I cannot even imagine. As an adult i still can deal with pain, lack of money even lack of food. I myself have been there and i know what i am talking about. But a child… the fact that any kind of society permits this is HORRIBLE and WRONG. For all what i know i only live once and i think every generation has a chance to change things. In the end we are all the same and dont change nothing. So our children have to go through this again and again. I wish to stop this and to stop it today because i cannot and i dont want any children to be hurt from this minute… its horrible to think this is happening at the same time i write these words and so everyone should gain conscience to STOP IT AT ONCE. I think politics have to understand this somehow and i think its a will thing, a attitude thing. If our generation fails like other have things will keep the same. If none cares nothing will ever change and thats what has been happening i guess.

  4. I am just appalled, in fact; appalled is not a good description. Sick, angry, hurt, grieved, there are a whole list of words that could express what I feel. ABOMINATION…against “GOD”, let’s make it that personal. Because “abomination”, against our creator and “His” creation; is truly what this is. What kind of mind-set, would a person have to have to condone, involve or turn their eyes away from, at seeing or knowing that this evil exists. Reprobate…the heart, well I want to know if there is a heart inside of a person who could be involved in this kind of monstrous act. Maybe, it’s a ticking replica of a heart; like the one the “tin man”, from the Wizard of Oz had. There can’t possibly be any conviction within anyone involved with this. Maybe, I can’t relate, because I have a roof over my head…I’m not fighting to get food on the table…I have a job…I’m not in a 3rd world country and have no other choice. Whatever the reason…there is no excuse to allow or close one’s eyes to this. The only hope is “GOD’s” intervention. AND…for America, land of the free, or so we are suppossed to be…to get involved and make congress listen, then to take action. Thank you, for making me aware and I will do my part. I’m getting involved, taking action. Kate Vanderfin

    i agree with you all if everyone wasn’t so fixed on cash you could totally fix and save those people’s lives. And to think they find the most trivial things more important things- like a child’s life.
