Criminalizing commercial sex work and branding ‘trafficking’ as the same thing raises the stakes for victims

It is the time of season to remember those who have not.

To remember the Good who wish only Good for others.

It is time for those who truly care to join with us and stand together, THE TIME FOR COUNTING IS NOW!!!!

Criminalizing commercial sex work and branding ‘trafficking’ as the same thing raises the stakes for victims

In the United States, any person under the age of 18 whether a girl or boy with any assistance from a third party, is by definition a ‘trafficked victim’, whether they consent or initiate contact on their own accord.

According to Professor Marcus, attempting to criminalize all commercial sex work and/or conflate the term with “trafficking” actually aggravates the situation for children who are commercially sexually exploited. A better solution, he says, is to normalize sex work:

“This notion of ‘child sex trafficking’ has a dependency to make the stakes so high that people have trouble talking about their experiences. Most young people we met wouldn’t go to social service agencies to get help because social services records were tied to child sex trafficking and no one wants their ‘support network’ such as your…

I want to Thank GentleKindness for nominating NOT IN MY WORLD!!!! I was excited and proud, although it was like I expected to see someone elses name on it some where, because I read it no less than three times. This was a very humbling experience, because I never expected anything like this, and I kept thinking of people who should have gotten this. But in the end, I was glad it was NOT IN MY WORLD!!!! that got it, for all of Our Children that are out there that we haven’t helped yet, and for the Violence that is still a common-place thing in this world.  ~Robert~

The questions my nominator asked as follows:

1. Name someone famous (past or present) in your country that you admire. Tell us what you admire about them.

Bill Gates is the man I have admired for many years, and Mark Cuban is another. They both opened their minds, and had faith in themselves. Bill Gates and his partner developed the first DOS, Disk Operating System for IBM’s first PC. He became the World’s richest man and stayed there until 2007.

2. Name someone famous from another country that you admire. Tell us why you admire them.

Sister Helen Ryan, Sisters of Mercy, Birmingham, United Kingdom
I will always hold Sister Helen in the highest of regards because if for nothing else, what she has done for Child Slavery. But there is a whole lot more reason than that.

3. If you were to get a job that had to do with the making of a motion picture. What job would you choose and why. (actor, screen writer, producer, music , make up artist…)

Usually it would have to be music, since I started playing piano at a very early age. But I would be an actor, because I like it. I have been an extra for a while.

8. Write your own question here and answer it how you like.

What is the definition of “Hacker”?

A “Hacker” is a disillusioned 3rd rate Code writer who half-way knows maybe 1 programming language; who can’t write and compile good enough, and he knows it’s just a matter of time before he gets canned, so he puts a back-door into a company’s computers. Then he damages or destroys someone elses property for the simple fact that he didn’t have enough drive to push himself to be one of the top three in his class; which would have landed him, probably, any job he desired in his field.

Museum Worker Stops 2-Year-Olds Abduction

Good Samaritan
Sharon Wise stopped Childs Abduction

Woman Stops Abduction of Young Girl

An employee at the Maine State Museum said her instincts kicked in when she saw an alleged attempted abduction.

Sharon Wise, 65, was at the museum reception desk on Tuesday when she saw a man run over to a 2-year-old girl and start to pull her by her wrist, according to ABC News affiliate WMTW-TV in Augusta, Maine. Wise said it all happened while the little girl’s grandmother was hanging up their coats.

“He grabbed a hold of the little girl and grabbed a hold of her wrist and he starts pulling her,” Wise told WMTW-TV. “At that point, instinctively I bent over and hovered over the child. I kept saying in a very low voice, leave her alone.”

Wise said the man did not leave the girl alone but instead kept pulling her. That’s when Wise, acting on instinct, managed to get between the man and the young girl, according to WMTW-TV. “I looked him right in the eye and I was really close to him and I said, ‘Let go of her now,’ and he waited for a minute, looked me right in the eye and he dropped her hand and left,” she said.

Minutes after he left, the man identified as James Cavallaro was arrested by police in the museum parking lot. “When he grabbed her, she [Wise] went right over and told him to let go and wouldn’t take no for an answer,” Chief Russell Gauvin of the Bureau of Capitol Police told The Associated Press. Cavallaro was charged with assault and held at the Kennebec County Jail.

Daydreaming and WordPress BBQ

Free Treat BBQ from WordPress and Automattic

WordPress, Does this look familiar????

I knew nothing about a page of this type for Google, it was like Mandarin Chinese early in August when I looked it over, so I didn’t want to admit that this looked doubtful even in daydreaming stage.

That’s when I remembered Lewis and his blog, so I came looking for a Childhood Friend with a blog.  I didn’t find my old buddy, but WordPress did something few people ever have, except for a group of mostly Veterans on Google+, they was nice to me.  None of my friends ever heard this part WordPress, BUT, they did hear about the idiot in the forum.  A lot of these friends are a lot like me in some ways, and someone whose mommie bought them the superman model computer, complete with cape, utility belt, and decoder ring, might just forget he wasn’t superman one day and talk down to a real Popeye the Sailor.  So you get the idea.

Thank You WordPress for that first day, I figured you might tell superman that it’s your fault for him not running me off.
