"Drug use [can] threaten earnings, especially if employees are willing to charge a lower price in exchange for narcotics," the study stated.And while the pimps may have underreported their use of violence, they admitted to psychologically manipulating women into sex work.IT IS an oft-told story, but it does not get any less horrific on repetition.Fifteen years ago, a paedophile enticed seven-year-old Megan Kanka into his home in New Jersey by offering to show her a puppy.He then raped her, killed her and dumped her body in a nearby park.The murderer, who had recently moved into the house across the street from his victim, had twice before been convicted of sexually assaulting a child. Had they known he was a sex offender, they would have told their daughter to stay away from him.Because this is what people are really scared of, they’re scared of women’s sexuality just like they always have been. And the big thing is, pop singers have been doing this for a long time, to generate controversy, get attention, and sell albums. And you know what, someday, maybe Miley Cyrus will look back on all this and regret it. Maybe she’ll be a sex-icon like Madonna for the rest of her life and make millions of dollars and be perfectly happy.
Credit cards are used 10 percent of the time, while trading sex for drugs accounts for another 4.2 percent of transactions.
In their grief, the parents started a petition, demanding that families should be told if a sexual predator moves nearby. In no time at all, lawmakers in New Jersey granted their wish.
And before long, “Megan's laws” had spread to every American state.
But what I do want to talk about is the conversation that has swirled around young Cyrus ever since the ill-fated twerking incident at the VMA’s, and her subsequent music video of her naked on a wrecking ball. They’ve wagged their fingers at her dance moves, her tongue, her hair-cut, her entire demeanor, her (unsurprising) change from Disney star to adult, her drug-use, and the fact that she’s just “not a role model for young girls.” Because apparently America thinks, as it has for the past, I dunno, forever, that female sexuality is “icky.” News flash: she’s a POP SINGER.
Like Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, Britney Spears, Christina Aquilera, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, and virtually EVER OTHER FEMALE POP STAR OF THE PAST 40 YEARS.
