There ya go Donna Hughes. You’ve saved the Carolina Panthers Mascot from potential trafficking

Donna Hughes may finally have a victory she can cite.

The New England Patriot’s mascot was arrested in Rhode Island for hiring an undercover police officer posing as a prostitute on Craigslist. With the Carolina Panthers coming to town this week, one could only imagine what heinous perpetrations the New England Patriots mascot may have had in mind with the Carolina Panthers mascot. Which is ironically a ki….. umm cat.

Well, there ya go Donna, there would have been cross border traveling as I can personally attest that the Carolina Panthers play their home games in North Carolina, and I have no doubt the Panthers Mascot would have been brought across state lines via aircraft with many young women, ironically called the Carolina TopCats who are likely to be scantily clad at game time.

I’m certain Donna Hughes would argue, all the indicators of human trafficking are there,,,,,, There is cross border transportation, young women dressed as cheerleaders, even many men who will play with their balls on Sunday.

But thanks to her efforts, this may have been thwarted.

From MSNBC “Don’t know how to say this so I’m just going to say it; Pat the Patriot, beloved mascot of the New England Patriots and inspiration to Boston-area children since 1960, has been arrested in a prostitution sting. But it gets worse: Evidently Pat was caught answering a naughty ad on Craigslist. Placed by a policeman in Rhode Island.

Rumor has it that local prostitutes called Pat by his other nickname, “The Revolutionary Minuteman.” They did not mean it as a compliment”.

  1. Oh, but Jill, didn’t you hear? There’s no prostitution in RI now that that law is passed. None at all. It’s all done disappeared.

    Except that it hasn’t. Pat the Pat is proof.

  2. I’d say the new RI laws are working: sexual trafficking is being stamped out left and right!! By “trafficking” I mean consenting adults since they’re always the focus of sex trafficking laws.

    Thanks for this, Jill.

  3. Donna Hughes could not be reached for comment at this time, however sources close to the University of Rhode Island Women’s Studies Professor indicated Ms. Hughes was, in fact, in Woonsocket, RI, to accept the Noble (sic) Peace Prize she awarded herself and was picking up at Lenny’s House of Trophy’s and Baseball Cards.

  4. Not surprisingly, it appears as if this legislation is doing the oppositive of what supporters said it would do. Prostitution prohibitionists act like criminalizing prostitution would help keep it out of RI and decrease sex tourism in the state, but this shows how the opposite is more likely. If undercover cops are placing prostitution ads on Craigslist, they could be bringing more people seeking prostitution into the state by placing such ads.

  5. I’m also wondering what arresting the Patriots’ mascot has to do with stopping human trafficking. I say this because prohibitionists were arguing that stopping trafficking is a major reason to criminalize prostitution, yet I don’t get the relevance of arresting this mascot if the goal is to stop human trafficking. Wouldn’t the resources be better put toward looking for effective solutions to stopping human trafficking?
    Also, how many cases of actual human trafficking have been stopped as a result of this legislation so far?

  6. SWA,

    I read somewhere that they successfully arrested a 17yr old sex worker. I’m sure that after arresting/traumatizing her, they subsequently “rescued” her. A victory! I’m sure everyone feels it was well worth the effort of arresting adults and screwing up their lives.

    Otherwise, they’re sending a direct message to all sexual traffickers in RI: we’re going after consenting adults, so just keep doing what you’re doing. We’ll never find you!

  7. I’m curious, what happened to her if she was say 102 days older and was 18? Would she still be “rescued” or just incarcerated?

  8. Jill,

    You know that the line between “victim” and pre-meditated prostitution stops at the 18th birthday.

  9. Not to mention, one is often only a “victim” to the prohibitionist conservative feminists like Donna Hughes if their politics are correctly aligned. If the said victim happens to disagree with the prohibitionist feminists on solutions to trafficking and violence in prostitution, the victim’s experience suddenly become suspect or irrelevant.

  10. Well, folks, if you go the the Providence Journal website and take a look at their news, Rhode Island in is in the financial toilet right now.

    It will serve those politicians who voted for this crappy law if they’re tossed to the curb by the voters next election.

  11. Hopefully Rhode Island voters consider the resemblance between politicians and diapers. Need to be changed alot and use your imagination for the rest…..
