Porn Actress Exposes Industry: Trafficking in the Porn Industry - The Pink Cross

Elements of Sex Trafficking

Act: Recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of persons;

Means: Threat or use of force, coercion, abduction, fraud, deception, abuse of power or vulnerability, or giving payments or benefits to a person in control of the victim;

Purpose: Prostitution of others, sexual exploitation, forced labor or services, or slavery.

- From the 2000 UN Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children, ratified by 154 countries. (x)

[Highlighted elements of sex trafficking in the porn industry connect with the examples Lubben gives in this specific gifset, other elements do occur in the porn industry as well].


"The federal Trafficking Victims Protection Act defines the crime of human trafficking as:

A. The recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for the purpose of a commercial sex act where such an act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such act has not attained 18 years of age, or

B. The recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for labor or services, through the use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery.” - (x)


… [P]ersons are trafficked into the international sex trade, often by force, fraud, or coercion. The sex industry has rapidly expanded over the past several decades. It involves sexual exploitation of persons, predominantly women and girls, involving activities related to prostitution, pornography, sex tourism, and other commercial sexual services. The low status of women in many parts of the world has contributed to a burgeoning of the trafficking industry. -
The Victims of Trafficking and Violence Prevention Act (TVPA). TVPA combats trafficking in persons, especially into the sex trade, slavery, and involuntary servitude. It has been reauthorized three times since its initial passage: (x)



We need to be talking about this and we need to be making sex work safe. No one should be made to feel like this treatment is okay.

Sex work should always be safe and consensual. The industry really needs more people in charge that have an ounce of compassion.

15-Year-Old African Kid Tells Madonna To Go ‘Have Sex’ with Herself




Dakarai Molokomme, a 15-year-old starving child from a small village in Zimbabwe, has just told , one of the most famous pop stars in the world, to  and f*** , the local media are reporting exclusively.

“Yes, it’s true, I told Madonna to go f*** herself. Do you want to know why?” Dakarai asked. “It’s the same thing every time with these snobby rich Americans. Every once in a while they come to show us their support for the so-called eradication of poverty by adopting a child from a starving family, but they actually do more harm than good. Transracial international adoptions are part of the white savior industrial complex,” Dakarai explained.

In further discussions with journalists from the media, the  stated that “none of the children here actually want to be taken away from their family and friends so they can be displayed as some kind of trophy in the homes of self-righteous singers or actors who want to score some points with the media and Oprah.”

“If they really want to help us, they should get Big Pharma to ship us some anti-retroviral drugs for the AIDS epidemic, or build schools and hospitals. If they don’t want to do that, then they can all go f** themselves!” the child told reporters.

The 15-year-old also stated that he would say the same thing to any one of those American or European “faux humanitarian posers”, except for Bono, whom he said he would also kick in the groin.

“Bono’s efforts to save the African savage from itself prove that the colonial imperative is alive and well,” Dakarai said as he walked with other village children collecting sticks to build a tree fort.

Government is not an à la carte system where you can pick and choose based on your beliefs. Taxation is more of an all-you-can-eat salad bar. You don’t get to show up and say, ‘Look, I know it costs $10.99, but I’m only paying $7.50 because I have a moral objection to beets.

Everyone has their own version of beets. If you really want to be treated like a person, corporations, then guess what? Paying for things you don’t like is what it feels like to be one.

countlessuntruths asked: Kaldur and Artemis!



Oops, I have failed at this meme for them. Have some headcanons though. 

- The first time they kiss is during The Great Undercover Mission. She kisses him, and she immediately feels bad about it, but sometimes under highly stressful situations you do things you wouldn’t otherwise do. He is the first one to pull away, he touches her face, and they don’t talk about it again during the Great Undercover Mission. The only difference in their relationship is the tension that Black Manta assumes is simply more proof of their love for one another.

- He helps her move after Wally’s death, and she never even has to ask. She’s glad because everyone else is distraught about Wally, and she ends up feeling like an inconvenience each time she tries to ask. The second Flash actually CRIED when he offered to help, so Kaldur showing up without being asked is a relief. Artemis feels guilty about that kiss a lot while they move boxes. Kaldur feels guilty about regretting pulling away. They still don’t talk about it.

- He helps her drop off the shitty couch that she never wanted. It’s ugly and hideous and tacky and Wally had loved it so much, so she’d given in. She’s glad now that she let him win that fight, but she ends up crying as she’s donating it, and Kaldur’s hand on her shoulder is the kind of strength that she is so thankful to have but wishes she didn’t have to borrow.

- It takes her a week to go buy a new couch. He sits in the rental truck while she picks it out.( “This one is your decision.”)

- The year after Wally’s death is filled with college and putting the team back together. It’s also filled with Lian tagging along with Aunt Artemis (and the puppy). Everything about the team is different now, especially with Dick gone and the new guys present. It’s different because they all expect Artemis and Kaldur to Be The All-Knowing Elders. It’s exactly the kind of chaos that Artemis missed when she was “retired,” and never realized until The Great Undercover Mission.

- That year also has a lot of shared conversations between Conner, M’Gann, Kaldur, and Artemis, usually in Artemis’ tiny new apartment. Conner and M’Gann go off on their own at the end of the night, and that leads to a lot of Kaldur and Artemis cleaning up cookie pans.

- It also leads to M’Gann discretely tugging Conner out of the door when Artemis falls asleep with her head on Kaldur’s chest during one of their movie nights. Because you don’t actually have to read minds to know that four is sometimes a crowd.

- The second time they kiss is on the couch that Artemis picked out. Conner and M’Gann have been gone for hours, they are FAR TOO OLD to be watching The Little Mermaid, and Lian is asleep down the hall. They are in the middle of their third kiss when Lian interrupts them and tells them that she has to pee.

- In years to come, Lian is never going to hear the end of that story.

- It’s been about a year and some change since Wally died when they go on their first “official” date. Neither of them feel guilty, because they both loved Wally, but you move on.

- The first place they have sex is on Artemis’ couch (obviously not during a night that Lian is having a sleep over). It was hers and now it’s theirs, and that feels very important and very different from what she’s had before.

- Neither of them will admit it, but over the years, patching each other up after a mission becomes their actual favorite foreplay.
