Sex Trade

“Suffer the children – how long will authorities allow this shameful sex trade to continue?”. This is the topic under features section in the current Reader’s Digest issue. I was annoyed after reading this. How could we human do such totally moral corrupted sin?! For those who have Reader’s Digest, you may read this article for details; for those who don’t have, I may pen some of the points and stories in the articles here.

In Cambodia, a girl who encountered her toughest time in her life as a result of the death of her dad decided to follow her neighbor to work in the capital to lighten her mum’s burden. What a shock was that her neighbor sold her to a brothel! Since then she had to work under men. Her boss even brought her to stitch her vagina to “regain” her virginity so that customers would like her and pay her more. What a shameful employer!

In Philippines, a pretty 13-year-old girl who worked in a bar noticed a famous government officer eyeing on her. The next day which was her birthday, she was given what she thought as medicine. The next morning, she found herself naked on the bed with the official’s son lying beside her. That day was as well the official’s son’s birthday and the girl and her virginity became his birthday present!

According to research conducted by Reader’s Digest, development in Asia has led to a widespread of sex trade. The main three factors are great demand for child sex from Asian men, indifference among lawmakers and enforcers and widespread corruption.

~Those sinful men believe it’s healthier to have sex with child as she has no sex diseases. Moreover, they believe having sex with children will bring them long life and good luck. What a shame!

~Though having sex with child under 16 is a crime and so employing those under 18 in sex trade, the sad part or rather ironical part is you can’t find any country where prosecution of traffickers has led to a reduce in the overall trafficking! Another issue we should really look into, hmm.

~Though there are laws mandated to beasts of having sex with children or trafficking child sex, the bribery and bleak corruption have led to the equality of no law to protect children from sex trade. The reason for that is those sex traders pay higher to them than government. On the other hand, if the case is brought to court, the sex trader can simply escape by just “giving” the judge US $ 10, 000. Another issue of integrity; if ever they are honest and responsible to their work, all these will not happen. Those officials are actually not different than those sex beasts!

What can we do then?

"What can we do then"?? Sit still and blog! What else can we do? It's obvious ain't it? Sex trade is not the only issue that pissess me off, there are many other major issues out there that need to be taken care of. Unless something is to be done, all you can do is keep reading the same misery over and over again and blog your way to your content. As I said, followers of happenings. Jess I definitely like to see you as the law enforcer in the future, drastic changes might lead on... *hehehe*

Hmmm, I'm not a good leader, and since I was young, I swore I'll never touch politic as I hate it!Seriously, I'm not sure what we can do, but let's respond to Sir Sian Lerk's appeal: to be a good and concerned citizen. I think this may help (at least a bit).

For every words that we say, for every words that we blog we might piss of some of the "big man of the world". The whole world is filled with black and white. We are just a tiny little bubble in this world. It is hard to control what people do but what we can do best is to control what we do.

Try to do our part for the world and try our best.

By the way, blogging ain't changing anything .. :P Just an expression of our feeling

Before saying what we can do,, please be thankful that we are not sexually traded...
In this case, jail and money are not gng to help much...
There should be some punishment like making those traffickers sterile, become functionless, or cut their "__" off,, and so on... this is better rite? lol....

Then the government may be blamed to be inhuman; no matter how wrong a person is, we still can't confiscate their basic human needs... *grins and cries*
