It hugely concerns me when I see the ‘First World Countries’ pretty much supporting sex to be used as the-number-one marketing tool. Yet the people & their Governments would also be the first to say that using sex to make money (multi-billion pound industries) is an atrocity.
I see no difference in Human Trafficking than I do in my own United Kingdom when we use coitus means solely for financial profit.
I am not speaking against sex in its entirety - sex is natural, beautiful & wonderful in the correct context. It’s when it is explicitly portrayed in music videos, adverts for toothpaste, coffee & phones as an everyday act void of love & encapsulated by lust. When large clothing companies design outfits highlighting the chest area…for nine year olds. For insurance companies, for selling butter, for make-up. In the streets, in your house on your television at least every 7 minutes. You can’t get away from it. It is teaching our younger generations that sexual acts are not to be respected, but instead to be flaunted & commissioned when are where we please. And then the Government and it’s people wonder how we got into a position where there are more teenage pregnancies, underage drinking, horrendous violence with prisons filling up with teens like never before.
We, as a nation, have deregulated our own morals over time. And just as the finance world softened on their values leading to a worldwide recession, I see the same happening with our own morals. The more we dilute and compromise on riskier and riskier exploits, the more the nation and, more specifically, the young people will grow up with a mindset that these things that should not be normal, are in fact a normality.
There is too much glorification of sex in the first world, which leads me to expect that Human Trafficking will continue and the even more horrific thought that it will probably grow. As an increasing amount of people become numb to the (now) out of date and seemingly irrelevant view that sex should be kept solely within love. The problem of Human Trafficking therefore dwindles and becomes less of a problem, because sex and its uses are constantly becoming more free and accessible. As little as 5 years ago, Rihanna’s video for ‘S&M’ would only be played on soft core porn channels. Now however, it’s available on daytime television.
This needs to stop. How can we expect these problems to change, if we ourselves are support the use of illicit sex and advertise violence to our society. Change starts with us. Unite as a nation and lead by example of higher morals and an increased sense of conviction against those who seek to destroy the lives of others for their own personal gain.
‘The journey for all of us begins with hopes, dreams, ambitions. You start to see the kind of person you want to become. See a version of the future that is full, brimming weith something good, That’s all she wanted, nothing more, nothing extraordinary. Just to be. Just to be who she wated to be, to be who she had the right to become. That’s what we all want isn’t it? Hope for the best, be the best. Grab the opportunities. That’s all she wanted, Nothing more. Just to be, just to be as splendid as she could be.
This is the really scary thing - how it happens, it’s someone…someone you know…someone you trust. Someone who wouldn’t do anything to harm you.
Someone who presents you with that chance of being that person you’ve dreamed of becoming, a new life. A new start. A chance to become YOU at last.’
At the end of the day, there would be no money in this industry if the lust of men was contained and we didn’t pay for sex in the first place.
What’s happened to you? Not her…You. Men. Real men don’t buy girls.
