EDITORIAL: Grosso jumped on the bandwagon as soon as Amnesty International became an official pro-pimp and john organization. Everyone needs to realize the threat to give pimps and johns free reign over girls and women in this country is imminent. This effort has failed in every single country that has tried it. We already can’t get pimps and johns prosecuted, even when there’s clear violence involved. Many more girls will die if prostitution is fully decriminalized in the US. This is nothing more than organized crime making a move to weaken our sex trafficking laws when we should be strengthening them most.
His statement that we’ve spent decades trying to arrest our way out of sex work is just plain false. So is Amnesty Int’l saying this will help sex workers. It hasn’t helped in Nevada or California. We’ve arrested the girls and ignored the abuse, violence and health violations the men who run these business let fester. While they hoard their profits, they let the girls pay the price, all in a so-called ‘legal’ environment. We’ve never worked to stop the pimps or johns because THEY ARE MEN. This move, made by Amnesty and the pimps and pornographers who financially back this descent into Hell, is not about helping girls and women trapped in sex work.
This is about freeing pimps and johns from any worry of getting caught selling human beings for someone’s sexual self-gratification. They are in the business of selling body parts, after all!
Here it is folks. Time to burn them down before they get any further. The battle begins to stop 50 states from allowing the enslavement of girls and women, you know, your daughters, granddaughters, nieces, sisters, moms, grandmas. Yep, no female in America will be safe from commercial sexual exploitation and sex trafficking. Are you prepared to fight for your girls and women now or will you hand them over to the pimps and johns who want to consume them?
A ‘legal’ brothel in Nevada. Why is this photo an atrocity when it’s girls in other countries but in the US, it’s shown on television as an empowering career move for girls here? They wait to be sexually used by a man in exchange for a few bucks!

It could be a lot easier for residents in our nation’s capital to get stoned and then go pick up a prostitute if this city councilman in Washington, D.C., gets his way.
The city legalized possession of marijuana in February, and now Councilman David Grosso wants to decriminalize prostitution.
Grosso lauded a decision by Amnesty International to support the decriminalization of prostitution in a press release Wednesday.
“For decades we have repeated the same practice over and over, trying to arrest our way to an end of sex work, but it has never worked. Instead criminalization has caused severe harm to communities,” Grosso said in the statement.
Since last month, D.C. police started to crackdown on prostitution with online sting operations.
Police have arrested almost 150 people in less than a month on prostitution-related charges using sting operations set up with fake ads on Craigslist to lure would-be customers to hotel rooms.
Most of the arrests occur in the city’s downtown area.
Earlier this week, the human rights group Amnesty International voted to adopt a policy favorable to the rights of sex workers, according to a statement released by the organization.
The group will now call on states to ensure that sex workers have legal protection from exploitation, trafficking and violence.
“Sex workers are one of the most marginalized groups in the world who in most instances face constant risk of discrimination, violence and abuse. Our global movement paved the way for adopting a policy for the protection of the human rights of sex workers which will help shape Amnesty International’s future work on this important issue,” said Salil Shetty, secretary general of Amnesty International.
Grosso told FOX 5 DC he plans to propose new legislation that would decriminalize the act of paying for sex.
“When you have two consensual adults and they are exchanging sex for money, that is something that I think we shouldn’t be getting in the middle of,” Grosso told the TV station.
