Sigh. Anyone feel like helping out over at “Hope for the Lost”?

Sigh. Anyone feel like helping out over at “Hope for the Lost”? The following is Victor Malarek’s response to Pye Jacobssen’s video criticizing the Swedish Model. He wrote “The Natashas” and “The Johns: Sex for Sale and the Men who Buy it”.

“The pro-prostitution organizations…which are basically individuals used as fronts by the sex industry (which is only interested in making huge amounts of money), will come out of the woodwork and vociferously attack any group that fights legalization and decriminalization of the flesh trade.

The arguments put forward by the pro-prostitution groups are specious and full of lies and propaganda. The fact is that wherever legalization has been implemented, it has led to a monumental failure in all aspects of the so-called trade. It has always led to more and more women trafficked, and has not led to an improvement in the condition of women ensnared in the trade.

The pro-prostitution groups’ position against trafficking is a ruse. Their attempts to separate trafficking from legalization are a divide and conquer tactic…they know full well that huge numbers of trafficked women make up the trade. To see how bad the situation is where legalization has been implemented, read ‘The Johns’ and what has happened in Amsterdam! Moreover, the legal and illegal brothels in several Australian states which have legalized are filled with Southeast Asian women. These women do not speak English, they don’t have any money. They don’t have the business acumen to set themselves as business contractors.

It is interesting that in ALL my talks in Canada, the U.S., Australia, Britain, Ireland, Copenhagen, Madrid, Helsinki, Kiev…reps from the pro-prostitution orgs come out in force to take me on, and after my speech, not a peep! Because they know I know B.S. when I hear it and can challenge their claims with ease.

My issue here is one of social justice for the vast majority of women who are forced into the sex trade fiasco…not the minority of twits who yell and scream on behalf of the sex industry!”

  1. it’s a waist of time commenting as one of my comments is awaiting moderation while others have been edited.

  2. The economic model of capitalism will always lead to people being exploited. For example, in the Foxconn factory where iPhones and iPads are made, people are subjected to draconian working conditions that are so bad they have led to several suicides. One irony is that it is well known that attractive women working in this factory, making consumer junk for Apple, have few options to improve their lot but one of those is sleeping with management. They might get extra long breaks for that, or possibly even shorter working days! This is a documented fact, but it seems not one that the anti-trafficking people want to pursue.

    Meanwhile, my girl has been using her earnings as an escort to pay for things like her mortgage on a nice house in the suburbs, her iPhone bill and work on her own terms so she’ll have time to raise her daughter. In this economy, it’s extremely hard to walk away from that kind of money, especially in a state with super high unemployment. Besides that, she doesn’t answer to any boss. Not too far away from us, people are quite literally enslaved in order to pick tomatoes. She’s tried to get a “regular job type job” and indeed is still trying, but despite a good education it hasn’t worked out for her.

    These people are not concerned about the exploitation of workers, only about their own prissy puritanism. To paraphrase Mencken, “they have the haunting fear that someone, somewhere might be having fun.”

    Incidentally, we both want her to retire (hey, it’s still far from an ideal job, it’s just a job!), but I’m not willing to break up with her over it. We’re not ready to take on austerity measures in our own lives, either. Oh, and my own job (not sex industry related) is probably more health and soul destroying than hers, so I wouldn’t mind retiring as well. Not that this guy would likely care about that!
