Anti Sex Worker Rights Candidate Defeated in Rhode Island

At least one candidate supported by the anti sex worker rights organization Citizens Against Trafficking has been defeated.

CAT endorsed Amy Rice as one of the candidates supportive of their false effort to allegedly assist and rescue trafficking victims by denying sex worker rights.

Amy Rice lost.

  3. Defeat for the fanatics.

  4. Too bad Blumenthal was reelected attorney general. He is principal for shutting down Craigslist Adult ads.

  5. The Attorney General’s Office has to investigate all complaints.

    You have as much right to file a complaint as anyone else.

    If you believe that CAT is falsely representing themselves, you can submit a form online to have them investigated for it.

    The Attorney General Office is a powerful tool available to every citizen of the United States, and yes, sex workers happen to be citizens too.

    If more sex workers would file complaints with the Attorney Generals, you would see that tools used against us can be effectively used for us.

    These groups claim to rescue children but what do the children say ? I see children going to jail and I don’t think that the public is *aware* of that part of the “rescue mission”.

    Most of these children are runaways but they are given back to their families after they get out of jail and I have to wonder how easy it is for any pimp to entice a 14yr old to prostitute herself with men old enough to be her father, unless she’s had some practice already.

    If a girl runs away from home, but doesn’t run away from a pimp, that should say something about her home life.

    I think the police should spend more time answering cries for help from people when they are crying for help.

    I have heard countless stories from women who couldn’t get the police to help them when they were getting abused by their husbands but as soon as their escort ad went online, ring ring, ring ring RESCUE MISSION CALLING.

    A real rescue would be answering the cries of help BEFORE they have to resort to a life of prostitution.

    The fact that these rescuers keep claiming that the victims don’t have a voice is a BIG CLUE, because I’m sure they do have voices but saying they don’t prevents those voices from being heard and before I support any rescue missions, I want to hear from the victims that are supposedly getting saved.
