Slavery has been around since the beginning of times and there are many forms of it such as sex trafficking, child sex trafficking, forced labor, bonded labor or debt bondage, domestic servitude, forced child labor, indentured servants, and unlawful recruitment and use of child soldiers. But in my opinion sex slavery is the worst. It disgusts me to even think that it is humanly possible for a person to buy another person just to rape them for their own pleasure. How could a person live with themselves after doing that?
In the past few years, we have heard about a couple of cases of sex slavery done by famous men. One of which was Jeffery Epstein. He sexually abused many underage girls on his private islands in Little St. James and Great St. James. Another man who took advantage of women was Harvey Weinstein. He was charged in 2018, with rape, criminal sex act, sex abuse and sexual misconduct involving two different women. Many more women have come forward since then and have accused him of other charges.
But not all these allegations are true some of the allegations were used for personal gain. For example, Brett Kavanaugh was accused of sexually assaulting Christine Blasey Ford while they were in high school. The charges were neither proven nor disproven but are most likely false due to the “victims” lack of being able to remember key details of the incident. These accusations almost ruined Kavanaugh’s chance of becoming a Supreme Court Justice, but that was exactly what Christine Blasey Ford was trying to do. She and the Democrats were trying to find something that would make Kavanaugh ineligible to be appointed to the Supreme Court so they could put in someone that was more liberal. There also have been many sunk campaigns due to fake #MeToo allegations.
Atlanta is the city with the largest amount of sex trade, but Florida has the third most human trafficking cases recorded by the state. This is only behind California and Texas. Jacksonville is the 48th city out of 100 of the most populous cities for sex trafficking. Most of the trafficking is among gangs, immigrants, hotels, and sometimes rich people.
Some men think of women as objects nothing but something for them to play with. They think that because they are bigger and stronger they can take advantage of women. Also, they think certain women should sit back and let the power-hungry men take control of everything. But the good women and men can not let that happen. They need to band together to get rid of and take the power away from the evil men who are trying to take advantage of the less fortunate women and children who are just trying to stay alive.
