What does this look like when charted? The charts below look at rapes, human trafficking cases, arrests for reported rapes and arrests for prostitution. Click on image to view larger size:

 

 

While of course "one is too many" why does no one seemed as concerned about the number of reported rapes compared to the number of cases of human trafficking?   Or the number of incidents of intimate partner violence (according to the Feds, there are 12 MILLION such incidents per year and would be so far off the chart that the other reported rapes AND incidents of human trafficking would not even be blips on this chart)? All of these statistics come from the Federal Government, not from me. I just charted them to compare them.

 

 

If prostitution is "like rape" (which, according to prostitution abolitionists, it is) why are there so few arrests  for reported rape cases, while so many arrests for prostitution when the prostitute has NOT reported being raped? How do you suppose that makes a real rape victim feel to know that law enforcement is more interested in pursuing the non violent, non abusive clients of women (and men) who have not asked for help?


One would think the apparent lack of concern for their emotional well being by society and law enforcement would exacerbate the PTSD that  must be experienced by victims who report their rapes. Such emotional damage must be further compounded when they learn that even though there are, according to some honest government employees, insufficient  resources to pursue, apprehend, prosecute and incarcerate the thousands of perpetrators of reported rapes, the government, nevertheless, feels compelled to instead pursue and prosecute those involved in non violent, non abusive consenting adult commercial sex to protect women- who have never requested help- from 'exploitation' 'degradation' and 'victimization.' And why, as so very often happens, when a prostitute does ask for help and was the victim of a rape (sex for which she did not consent) are prosecutors reluctant to prosecute the perpetrator because they are convinced that the jury won't  believe the prostitute?


In as much as jails and prisons are overcrowded and many are under court order to release inmates early, should we not, as a society, ensure that the limited space available is given to those criminals whose victims have actually reported a crime rather than pursue an ideological/moral agenda and incarcerate those non violent, non abusive clients of consenting adult prostitutes  who did not request law enforcement intervention?
