Super Bowl prostitution: 100,000 hookers didn't show, but America's latest political scam did.

Had elected officials done even the slightest research, they would have known it was myth. But this had little to do with protecting women and children. Think of it as a combination religious revival and political scam.

Politicians, women's groups, cops and child advocates were predicting that up to 100,000 hookers would be shipped into Dallas for the Super Bowl. It would be akin to the invasion of Normandy—with silicone and come-hither poses at no extra charge.

Yet someone forgot to tell America's prostitutes they had an appointment with destiny. The arrest numbers are now in. The hookers failed to show.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Village Voice Media, which owns this newspaper, owns the classified site Backpage.com. In addition to used cars, jobs, and couches, readers can also find adult ads on Backpage; for this reason, Women's Funding Network and their allies have often called attention to the site, sometimes going so far as to call for its closure.

Certainly we have a stake in this discussion. And we do not object to those who suggest an apparent conflict of interest. We sat quietly and did not respond as the WFN held symposiums across America—from Seattle to Miami—denouncing Backpage. Indeed, we were never asked for response.

But then we looked at the "science" and the media's willingness to regurgitate, without question, these incredible statistics. In the interest of a more informed discussion, we decided to write.



RELATED: Human Trafficking Evokes Outrage, Little Evidence

Follow up:(Sex) Traffick911 Press Release

Read the original story: The Super Bowl Prostitute Myth: 100,000 Hookers Won't Be Showing Up in Dallas

It was folly from the outset, of course. To buy the hype, you had to believe that the NFL's wealthiest fans stuffed their carry-on luggage with searing libidinal hunger. Though by day they pretended to be mercantile saints from the pages of the Wall Street Journal, they were actually marauding sex fiends. Their plot: Turn Hilton hot tubs into naked versions of the New York Stock Exchange.

And if that wasn't enough to scare the good citizens of Dallas, women's groups slathered the plot with surplus outrage. Up to 38,000 of these hookers would be child sex slaves, according to a study by the Dallas Women's Foundation. They'd presumably been kidnapped en masse while waiting in line at the mall Cinnabon, then shipped to Dallas for deflowering by venture capitalists and frozen-food barons.

America's human trafficking epidemic was coming to North Texas. The Super Bowl would be ground zero.

Conveniently, the same people making the claims reserved the roles of hero for themselves. Worry not, good people of Dallas: They would repel the infidels at the city gates.

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott puffed his chest and promised dozens of extra bodies. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Homeland Security linked arms with 13 state and local police agencies in a task force. Even the airline industry leaped in, training flight attendants to spot the indentured.

Linda Smith, a former Washington congresswoman and founder of Shared Hope International, announced her date with gallantry in The Dallas Morning News. "Now that I know it, I have no choice but to stand and fight," she said. "This is just brutal, brutal slavery of girls."

Deena Graves, executive director of the Christian group Traffick911, took it even further, framing the clash as nothing short of Jesus vs. Depravity. God Himself had naturally anointed her as His general.

"We believe, without a doubt, that God gave us the Super Bowl this year to raise awareness of what's happening with these kids," she told the Morning News.

But since they hadn't bothered to do the research, they would be forced to clash swords with an imaginary foe. Such is the burden of the selfless crusader.

From Germany to Miami, the same hysteria precedes every big sporting event, be it the Super Bowl, the World Cup, or the Olympics. The only difference is that Dallas, befitting its perch as buckle of the Bible Belt, jacked up the decibels.

Before every big game, church bells ring of a massive hooker invasion. Incurious newspapers parrot the claims;a five-minute Google search being too much trouble. Then politicians and activists climb aboard.

The recipe for civic panic is placed in the oven, set for baking to a charred husk.

Yet when each event ends with just a handful of arrests, police admit the invasion was nothing more than myth. The panic whimpers away to seclusion, only to resurrect itself just in time for the next big show.

Detectives from Dallas to Plano, Forth Worth to Irving saw no spikes in sex traffic or signs of the occupiers.

"Everybody else is talking about special operations, the AG comes in talking about special operations, but this is what we do," says Sergeant Byron Fassett, head of the Dallas PD's human trafficking unit. "We didn't have to do a special operation. We do special operations all the time, and this was one of them."

In other words, it was just another week of playing cat and mouse with the world's oldest profession.

Arlington, host to the game, unleashed extra manpower and bagged an impressive 59 arrests. But it found scant evidence of erotic hordes. Of the 100,000 supposedly Lone Star-bound hookers, Deputy Chief Jaime Ayala says, only 13 were found by his guys. Their busts largely involved rousting the local talent.

ICE Spokesman Carl Rusnok says there were 105 prostitution arrests metro-wide. But what was billed as a bare-naked onslaught fell rather short. Just to reach three figures, ICE had to include 12 Class C misdemeanors—the legal equivalent of a speeding ticket.

Rusnok hints at more nefarious busts for human trafficking, but he refuses to provide names, charges or anything else that would allow for verification.

The 38,000 teen slaves also proved elusive. Police managed to find just two—and they were Texas-grown.

Anthony Winn, a 35-year-old degenerate from Austin, had been pimping out a 20-year-old woman when he decided to peddle her 14-year-old sister as well.

The trio showed up in Dallas for the big game. But the older sister objected to the selling of the younger one. So when Dallas police encountered them on the street, the women quickly ratted out Winn.

There is a lot of controversy over the numbers of adult woman who are forced sex slaves. The real factual answer is that no one knows. There is hard evidence that the sex slavery/sex trafficking issue continues to report false information and is greatly exaggerated by politicians, the media, and aid groups, feminist and religious organizations that receive funds from the government, The estimate of adult women who become new sex slaves ranges anywhere from 40 million a year to 5,000 per year all of which appear to be much too high. They have no evidence to back up these numbers, and no one questions them about it. Their sources have no sources, and are made up numbers. In fact if some of these numbers are to believed which have either not changed or have been increased each year for the past twenty years, all woman on earth would currently be sex slaves. Yet, very few real forced against their will sex slaves have been found.

It is not easy for criminals to engage in this activity:

Sex trafficking is illegal and the penalties are very severe. It is very difficult to force someone to be a sex slave, they would have to have 24 hour guards posted and be watched 365 days a year, 24 hours per day. Have the threat of violence if they refused, and have no one notice and complain to the authorities or police. They would need to hide from the general public yet still manage to see customers from the general public and not have the customers turn the traffickers in to the police. They would need to provide them with medical care, food, shelter, and have all their basic needs met. They would need to have the sex slaves put on a fake front that they enjoyed what they were doing, act flirtatious and do their job well. They would have to deal with the authorities looking for the missing women, and hide any money they may make, since it comes from illegal activity. They must do all of this while constantly trying to prevent the sex slaves from escaping and reporting them to the police. They would need to prevent the general public from reporting them into the police.

This is extremely difficult to do, which makes this activity rare. These criminals would be breaking dozens of major laws not just one. Kidnapping itself is a serious crime. There are many laws against sex trafficking, sex slavery, kidnapping, sex abuse, rape, sexual harassment etc. If someone is behind it, they will be breaking many serious laws, be in big trouble, and will go to jail for many long years. While there are some women who may be true victims. And it is possible for this to happen in rare situations. This is a small rare group of people and that the numbers and scale of this crime is exaggerated. The very nature of someone pulling off a kidnapping and forced sex for profit appears to be very difficult. Since it would be difficult this makes this crime rare. Not impossible, but extremely rare. And do you really think that millions of people are lining up to make a career out of being a illegal violent sex slave kidnapping pimp?

A key point is that on the sidelines the adult prostitutes themselves are not being listened to. They oppose laws against prostitution. But no one wants to listen to the prostitutes themselves. Only to the self appointed experts that make up numbers and stories many of which have never met a real forced sex slave or if they did it was only a few. The media and government never ask the prostitutes themselves what would help them in terms of laws.

Many women in the sex business are independent workers. They don’t have a pimp.They work for themselves, advertise themselves, and keep all the money for themselves. No one forces them, because there isn’t anyone to force them. They go out and find their own customers, set their own prices, and arrange everything by themselves. Sometimes they may employ others to help them, but these are not pimps. If for example, she hires an Internet web design company to make a website for her, does that make the web design company a pimp? If she pays a phone company for a phone to do business, does this make the phone company a pimp? If she puts an ad in the paper, does this make the editor a pimp? If she puts the money she makes into a bank account does this make the bank a pimp?

A lot of anti prostitution groups would say yes. Everyone and everybody is a pimp.

These groups make up lies, and false statistics that no one bothers to check. A big reason they do this is because it provides high paying jobs for them. They get big donations, and grants from the government, charity, churches, etc. to have these groups, and pay these high salaries of the anti prostitution workers.

If it were the Republican National Committee at Cowboys Stadium the hookers would have been there a week early. We all know how moral they are when they are out of public view. That's why they are worried about everyone else because they would certainly be all about the hookers......

I am curious to understand why hysterical, overblown, so-called crises are such a big deal all of a sudden.

Democrats have been using that tactic for years without a challenge from anyone in the media.

For example, democrats have an inventory stock scare phrases to add to any debate where there is no factual evidence to support their assertions - ex. ... will starve old people, ,,,,, harms children, ......melts the ice caps, .... Europeans won't like us, and on and on.

It works for them because their constituency will believe anything - like 0bama's Hope and Change.

==Super Bowl 2011 =========Top FBI agent in Dallas (Robert Casey Jr.) sees no evidence of expected spike in child sex trafficking:“Among those preparations was an initiative to prevent an expected rise in sex trafficking and child prostitution surrounding the Super Bowl. But Robert Casey Jr., special agent in charge of the FBI’s Dallas office, said he saw no evidence that the increase would happen, nor that it did.“In my opinion, the Super Bowl does not create a spike in those crimes,” he said. “The discussion gets very vague and general. People mixed up child prostitution with the term human trafficking, which are different things, and then there is just plain old prostitution.”

== World Cup 2006 ==Politicians, religious and aid groups, still repeat the media story that 40,000 prostitutes were trafficked into Germany for the 2006 world cup – long after leaked police documents revealed there was no truth at all in the tale. A baseless claim of 25,000 trafficking victims is still being quoted, recently, for example, by the Salvation Army in written evidence to the home affairs select committee, in which they added: "Other studies done by media have suggested much higher numbers.” Which has been proven by the German police to be completely false. Yet people still talk about these false numbers as if it were fact.

==World Cup 2010 ==Again using the made up number of 40,000 prostitutes trafficked:The behavior of fans in South Africa has run contrary to what was predicted prior to the start of the tournament after David Bayever told World Cup organizers in March it was feared that up to 40,000 extra prostitutes could converge in the host nation to meet the expected demand. Bayever, deputy chairperson of South Africa's Central Drug Authority (CDA) that advises on drug abuse but also works with prostitutes, warned: "Forty-thousand new prostitutes.But the tournament in 2010, if anything, has seen the modern-day soccer fan attracted to art galleries and museums over brothels. A trend that has seen a drop in revenue across the board for the prostitution industry, which is illegal in South Africa. "Zobwa," the chairperson of Sisonke -- an action group representing around 70 street prostitutes in Johannesburg -- said business had been down over the last month. "The World Cup has been devastating. We thought it was going to be a cash cow but it's chased a lot of the business away. It's been the worst month in my company's history," the owner and founder of one of Johannesburg's most exclusive escort companies told CNN.

====The Vancouver Olympics 2010 =======Again anti-prostitution groups lied and used the same figure of 40,000 or more sex slaves for the Vancouver Olympics. Again they were proved wrong. There were no sex slaves at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics.

Sex trafficking is certainly not a myth. Talk about lack of research, this article is embarrassing. I can't imagine what would make someone so upset with attempts to protect women and children. These are victims, not hookers.

I am shocked. Shocked, I tell you. Wait - no - I got that backwards. I am not shocked.

"To equate the two is to say grown women aren't capable of being responsible for themselves. That is pretty insulting to women don't ya' think?"

And sure enough, that's exactly what they do, trotting out the old "you've been brainwashed!" trope. It's like something right out of the white slavery scares from a hundred years ago... innocent girls unable to say no to those pimping Casanovas, swept away into sin before they can even clear the girlish fog from their brains. Yeah. I'm a little bitter. :P

Of course they weren't going to show. Only a nitwit would think they would.

One other, there's a difference between prostitution and sex slavery. Prostitution is a business between adults and in our society adults are responsible for themselves. Sex slavery is just that, slavery and it's non-consensual.

To equate the two is to say grown women aren't capable of being responsible for themselves. That is pretty insulting to women don't ya' think?

As this article appears in "Dallas Observer," I understand its perspective is necessarily snarky, anti-authoritarian and dismissive. I get the impression that the author would have preferred if prostitution actually *had* risen. Part of his anger seems to be at the idea that something is wrong with prostitution in the first place.

The central facts are reported accurately; I read news articles wondering about this on-coming wave. It wasn't just prostitutes, though; we were supposed to see perhaps $600 million in increased business in general, and major increases at Dallas nightclubs. Those probably fell short, too.

According to the media hype There was supposed to be hundreds of thousands of under age child sex slaves kidnapped and forced to have sex with super bowl fans. At the Dallas Super Bowl 2011. WHAT HAPPENED TO ALL OF THEM???? WHERE ARE ALL THE KIDNAPPED FORCED CHILD SEX SLAVES??????

Well, as I predicted it was all a big lie told by various anti-prostitution groups and the Dallas Women’s Foundation which is a anti-prostitution group that lies in order to get grant money from the government and charities to pay their high salaries. As proved in the link below:

Top FBI agent in Dallas (Robert Casey Jr.) sees no evidence of expected spike in child sex trafficking:

“Among those preparations was an initiative to prevent an expected rise in sex trafficking and child prostitution surrounding the Super Bowl.

The first half of this story seems bitter and resentful (typical Observer writer). It's a GOOD thing the sex-slave count was incredibly inaccurate. Maybe raising awareness of the issue is paying off. Nothing wrong with that.

I like that the second half of this story challenges readers to do their own research. Considering I have friends who travel the country and abroad working with non-profit organizations to combat sex slavery and human-trafficking, I've only heard their sides of the argument. And though their figures are estimates, I'm sure their focus is primarily on helping the victims they are dealing with directly. Nothing wrong with that either.

Also, maybe the fairly-recent removal of the 'erotic services' section on Craigslist was a big help too.Hopefully in the future, this issue won't exist, so no one will argue.

Your article sounds just as biased as the myths you are slamming! Do you think a "simple Google search" is going to pop up all the hookers and sex slaves available at the game??? Did you think that they'd be so obvious as to walk around with signs on their foreheads announcing who they were so they could be arrested??? You'd have to be an idiot to think that this would be a piece-of-cake crime to solve in one event. There's a reason sex slavery is extremely difficult to track, or else more girls would be found and safe at home. I'm not sure how many girls might have been sent in for a game, but I do believe it happens. Whether or not the "myth" of how many girls sent is correct, I, for one, am glad that more people have been made aware of the sex slavery issue. I've seen the trailers at previous games' tailgating sites reserved for this purpose, so it's not a hoax, and it's disturbing. When promoting journalism as a non-biased, fact-giving medium, make sure you're counting YOURSELF in this equation when writing your stories, friend!

It is very interesting that even though CNN has reported that sex slavery has been reported false in sports events. They still have "CNN freedom project" which continues to report biased incorrect information about sex trafficking and tries to get people involved in believing lies. This project is really not a news project at all. It is a special interest group that tells lies. This reporting does not try to find the facts. It only repeats incorrect statistics. There is someone at CNN that has a mission to mislead the public about this issue. I would like to see a full scale investigation report about why they are so concerned with misleading the public, and are not at all concerned with finding the facts.

I would like to see more news stories about the the lies, myths and exaggerated numbers being told about sex trafficking slaves. The articles about the super bowl sex slaves, the world cup, and Olympic sex slaves has been proved wrong many times, but news organizations still report about it, as if it were fact. Why doesn't anyone want to look for the truth? Why do people want to believe lies? And NOT just take the anti-prostitution groups word for it?

Why doesn't more news organizations want to know:

1. How did the super bowl child sex slaves rumor get started? 2. Who started it? 3. Why did the public and politicians believe it so easily, when it is not based on any facts?

I would like to see a full scale investigation as to why news companies tell these lies and into who started this and caused all this tax payer money being spent checking out this untrue rumor, and ruining the reputation of the the great sport of football because of a untrue rumor.

So this is the second article Pete has written on this subject. Why did Village Voice Media bring in a ringer to write about a Dallas issue? He's a hell of a reporter and will attack a story like a dog on a bone.

It sounds like the author of this article wants to see results. Prostitution caught red-handed, arrests made, etc. It also sounds like Patrick has an extreme opposition towards Christian believers. The tone is really harsh, as if he's judging Christianity and God's people.

First of all, I'm glad there was a movement to raise awareness. Perhaps there weren't arrests made because prostitution events were thwarted. Prevention is always the better solution. And secondly, God commands all of us, as believers, to help push back the darkness, not just Deena Graves. We are all responsible, even you Patrick, who thinks that prostitution is wrong but does NOTHING about it, except sits back and judges others who are actively fighting back. Do your part to pitch in, and don't negate the efforts of others.

You are right about one thing Patrick. God does call us to fight the unseen demons. The bible even says these battles are of spiritual nature. And if the battles are spiritual, so are the victories. You won't see arrests being made, so don't ever count on that. But rather, you'll witness hearts and lives being changed, if you spend some time doing some research. You should write a positive story on that.

Adult Women are NOT children.

Media coverage of trafficking and adult women's migration and sex work is confused and inaccurate. The media wrongly uses the terms 'sex work' and 'trafficking' and adult sex work and child sex trafficking synonymously, perpetuating stereotypes and stigmatization, and contributing to the violation of women's right to free movement and livelihood options. They assume that if any woman moves from place to place for sex work that they are being trafficked. The media, politicians, aid groups, feminist, and religious organizations does not take into account that she may do this of her own free will. Too often women are treated like children.

Adult women are NOT children.

Most migrant women, including those in the sex industry, have made a clear decision, says a new study, to leave home and take their chances abroad. They are not "passive victims" in need of "saving" or sending back by western campaigners.

Sex Trafficking/Slavery is used by many groups as a attempt to outlaw all prostitution around the world by saying that all women are victims even if they do it willing. This hurts any real victims because it labels all sex workers as victims.

This is done by the media, aid groups, NGO’s, feminists, politicians, and religious organizations that receive funds from the government. There are very strong groups who promote that all adult women who have sex are victims even if they are willing, enjoy it and go out of there way to get it. These groups try to get the public to believe that no adult women in their right mind would ever go into the sex business unless she was forced to do so, weather she knew it or not. They say that 100% of all sex workers are trafficking victims. They do this in order to label all men as sex offenders and wipe out all consensual prostitution. Which is what their real goal is. There is almost no one who challenges or questions them about their false beliefs. Therefore, the only voices you hear are of these extreme groups.

These anti-prostitution groups want to label all men as terrible sex offenders for seeing a willing adult sex worker. No one stands up to say this is foolish, the passive public says nothing.

These groups even say that all men who marry foreign women are terrible sex predators who take advange of these "helpless foreign women wives".

These groups believe that two adults having consensual sex in private should be outlawed. Since they believe that it is impossible for a man to have sex with a woman without abusing the woman in the process.

WHAT HAPPENED TO ALL OF THEM????????????

??????WHERE ARE THE THOUSANDS OF DALLAS CHILD SEX SLAVES????????

Well, as I predicted it was all a big lie told by various anti-prostitution groups and the Dallas Women’s Foundation which is a anti-prostitution group that lies in order to get grant money from the government and charities to pay their high salaries. As proved in the link below:

Top FBI agent in Dallas (Robert Casey Jr.) sees no evidence of expected spike in child sex trafficking:

But Robert Casey Jr., special agent in charge of the FBI’s Dallas office, said he saw no evidence that the increase would happen, nor that it did.“In my opinion, the Super Bowl does not create a spike in those crimes,” he said. “The discussion gets very vague and general. People mixed up child prostitution with the term human trafficking, which are different things, and then there is just plain old prostitution.”http://www.dallasnews.com/spor...

This myth of thousands or millions of underage sex slaves tries to make every sports fan a sex criminal. No matter what the sport is, or in what country it is in.

Brian McCarthy isn't happy. He's a spokesman for the NFL. Every year he's forced to hear why his customers are adulterers and child molesters. Brian McCarthy says the sport/super bowl sex slave story is a urban legend, with no truth at all.

I do not like the idea of people getting the wrong information and believing lies, no matter what the topic is. The Sex trafficking, slavery issue is one of the biggest lies being told today. It is amazing to me how people will believe such lies so easily. The media is to blame for this. I wonder why they feel such a need to report wrong stats, numbers and information about this topic without doing proper research.

While this may happen in very rare limited situations, the media will say that millions of people are sex slaves without doing any real research on the topic. Only taking the word of special interest anti-prostitution groups which need to generate money in the form of huge government grants from taxpayers, and charities. These "non profit" group's employees make huge salaries, therefore they need to lobby the government, and inflate and invent victims in order to get more money into their organizations. If you look into how many real kidnapped forced against their will sex slaves there are, and not just take the anti-prostitution groups word for it. You will be very surprised.

Where are all the forced sex slaves? I would like to meet the millions of slaves and see for myself if they were kidnapped and forced against their will.

These groups lobby the government in a big way, getting Politicians to truly believe their lies.

This is an attempt to over inflate an issue in order to get more government money to these organizations. As a tax payer, voter, and resident I don’t want the government to mislead me.

I would like to see a news organization do a full report on the lies, myths and exaggerated numbers being told about sex trafficking slaves. The articles about the super bowl sex slaves, has been proved wrong many times, but news organizations still report about it, as if it were fact.

A key point is that on the sidelines the prostitutes themselves are not being listened to. They oppose laws against prostitution. But no one wants to listen to the prostitutes themselves. Only to the self appointed experts that make up numbers and stories many of which have never met a real forced sex slave or if they did it was only a few.

Many women in the sex business are independent workers. They don’t have a pimp.They work for themselves, advertise themselves, and keep all the money for themselves. No one forces them, because there isn’t anyone to force them. They go out and find their own customers, set their own prices, and arrange everything by themselves. Sometimes they may employ others to help them, but these are not pimps. If for example, she hires an internet web design company to make a website for her, does that make the web design company a pimp? If she pays a phone company for a phone to do business, does this make the phone company a pimp? If she puts an ad in the paper, does this make the editor a pimp? If she puts the money she makes into a bank account does this make the bank a pimp?

A lot of anti prostitution groups would say yes. Everyone and everybody is a pimp.These groups make up lies, and false statistics that no one bothers to check. A big reason they do this is because it provides high paying jobs for them. They get big donations, and grants from the government, charity, churches, etc. to have these groups, and pay these high salaries of the anti prostitution workers.

There is hard evidence that the sex slavery/sex trafficking issue continues to report false information and is greatly exaggerated by politicians, the media, and aid groups, feminist and religious organizations that receive funds from the government, The estimate of adult women who become new sex slaves ranges anywhere from 40 million a year to 5,000 per year all of which appear to be much too high.

It is not easy for criminals to engage in this acitvity:Sex trafficking is illegal and the pentities are very severe. It is very difficult to force someone to be a sex slave, they would have to have 24 hour guards posted and be watched 365 days a year, 24 hours per day. Have the threat of violence if they refused, and have no one notice and complain to the authorities or police. They would need to hide from the general public yet still manage to see customers from the general public and not have the customers turn the traffickers in to the police. They would need to provide them with medical care, food, shelter, and have all their basic needs met. They would need to have the sex slaves put on a fake front that they enjoyed what they were doing, act flirtatious and do their job well. They would have to deal with the authorities looking for the missing women, and hide any money they may make, since it comes from illegal activity. They must do all of this while constantly trying to prevent the sex slaves from escaping and reporting them to the police. They would need to prevent the general public from reporting them into the police. This is extremely difficult to do, which makes this activity rare. These criminals would be breaking dozens of major laws not just one. Kidnapping itself is a serious crime. There are many laws against sex trafficking, sex slavery, kidnapping, sex abuse, rape, sexual harassment etc. If someone is behind it, they will be breaking many serious laws, be in big trouble, and will go to jail for many long years.

The very nature of someone pulling off a kidnapping and forced sex for profit appears to be very difficult. Since it would be difficult this makes this crime rare. Not impossible, but extremely rare. Plus, do you really think that people are lining up to make a career out of being a sex slave pimp?

== World Cup 2006 ==Politicians, religious and aid groups, still repeat the media story that 40,000 prostitutes were trafficked into Germany for the 2006 world cup – long after leaked police documents revealed there was no truth at all in the tale. A baseless claim of 25,000 trafficking victims is still being quoted, recently, for example, by the Salvation Army in written evidence to the home affairs select committee, in which they added: "Other studies done by media have suggested much higher numbers.” Which has been proven by the German police to be completely false. Yet people still talk about these false numbers as if it were fact.==World Cup 2010 ==Again using the made up number of 40,000 prostitutes trafficked:The behavior of fans in South Africa has run contrary to what was predicted prior to the start of the tournament after David Bayever told World Cup organizers in March it was feared that up to 40,000 extra prostitutes could converge in the host nation to meet the expected demand. Bayever, deputy chairperson of South Africa's Central Drug Authority (CDA) that advises on drug abuse but also works with prostitutes, warned: "Forty-thousand new prostitutes. As if we do not have enough people of our own, we have to import them to ensure our visitors are entertained."But the tournament in 2010, if anything, has seen the modern-day soccer fan attracted to art galleries and museums over brothels.A trend that has seen a drop in revenue across the board for the prostitution industry, which is illegal in South Africa. "Zobwa," the chairperson of Sisonke -- an action group representing around 70 street prostitutes in Johannesburg -- said business had been down over the last month. "The World Cup has been devastating. We thought it was going to be a cash cow but it's chased a lot of the business away. It's been the worst month in my company's history," the owner and founder of one of Johannesburg's most exclusive escort companies told CNN.

In recent years, every time there has been a major international sporting event, a group of government officials, campaigning feminists, pliant journalists and NGOs have claimed that the movement of thousands of men to strange foreign countries where there will be lots of alcohol and horniness will result in the enslavement of women for the purposes of sexual pleasure. Obviously. And every time they have simply doubled the made-up scare figures from the last international sporting event, to make it look like this problem of sport/sex/slavery gets worse year on year. Yet each year it is proved false.This myth tries to make every sports fan a sex criminal. No matter what the sport is, or in what country it is in. These anti-prostitution groups need to in invent a victim that does not exist in order to get press attention.

Are you out of your fucking minds? 100,000 prostitutes? In the Super Bowl? At the same time?Stuffing a phone booth? At the same time. 100,000 johns. By the time we got to Woodstock, we were half a million strong. If Wavy Gravy were to be believed, they not only were fucking and sucking, they were bonging and dropping acid. So you're trying to tell me, that the prosties and their johns numbered a quarter million or there about. and an evangelical. Shit. So what do we have? Woodstock 500 grand!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 100 grand hookers plus 100 grand johns, one evangelical and a pussy in a pair tree!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Better safe than sorry. Who is being political now and pointing out the acts of the Right Wing that were not needed? Now what if it had been lefties doing it? Hmmm.... What has been lost? Maybe ask also what has been prevented by word getting out that all these organizations and extra personnel would be around and monitoring activities and "cracking down" on activities such as these. There is nothing WRONG with what was done. They were just being prepared. I wish more were ready to fight against the moral degradation of America.

Sex trafficing should be stopped but people who go around telling giant lies and embellishing the facts do NOT help with stopping the trafficing. The problem is many of the people who are telling these lies are trying to get money as "donations" for their so called "organizations" and who are making a living (six figure salaries) off "fighting against" this crime. These people are not helping the underage sex slaves, they are just helping themselves. By the way, many are just hookers, not all are underage kidnap victims.

the author clearly showed the lack of research is by those generating and funding millions of dollars toward a problem that's proven to be nowhere near the levels pulled out of their collective asses... he's not upset with attempts to protect women and children, in theory, and your comment is exactly what he described is part of the problem... but i guess waste and fraud is justified in order for politicians and other do-gooders to appear that they care, which apparently plays right into your mindset... keep voting for those crooks if it helps you sleep at night...

right-wingnuts such as bill clinton, who according to the author, declared a jihad on this non-existent problem?... if there is a left-winger who has challenged this fraud, at the risk of appearing insensitive to women's issues, they sure aren't generating much juice...

Prostitution and sex slavery are two different things. I understand and want underage girls to have protection but why do grown women need protection or our society for that matter?

You're nice and patronizing as you seem to be saying that grown woman aren't responsible for themselves. How very Dobson of you...

B...I think the Google search was to find that this hysteria happens before every game, and that the sporting event hooker import is a myth...it was not a recommended way to find hookers...

So a pack of rabid religious thumpers spout exaggerated numbers and when those numbers do not pay out you fully believe that the unseen flying spaghetti monster caused bad weather and or changed those exaggerated numbers away out with a wave of his magic meatball.You also say that if the number would have even approached 1/20th the amount predicted by the wavers of the magic holy pot called a colander then it was the will of the flying spaghetti monster that gave the rabid religious thumpers the future vision to see the problem.

Do you even see your own double talk that you are spewing?When facts don't bear out their lies it is because FSM changed the hearts of the evil dooers and or F**ked up the weather and even if they get lucky and a note worthy amount of sex workers are picked up then FSM still gets credit.

Wow is all I have to say

Really - are you serious?

It is fine to raise awareness about the problem of human slavery and forced prostitution but to be telling outright lies (overstatements at best) is another thing. The groups that were telling these whoppers (100,000??? - 30,000 children????) were/are hiding behind God and Christianity to raise money for themselves and to justify their own existence. If it weren't underage prostitution, they would have probably found some other hot button issue to alarm people about. Ever hear the story about the boy who cried wolf? Finally, what does the Bible and Christianity say about lying - isn't knowingly telling falsehoods wrong?

Preparing against a false threat is a waste of time and money. The point being made is that the organizations who are behind this effort are crying wolf. Not only does that create baseless fear, but it blinds us to real threats that these resources could combat.
