Backpage CEO arrested

Post by Biscotti on Tue Apr 17, 2018 10:53 am

I got an email from the NCOSE 

2) Last week, a major kingpin of sex trafficking fell. After many years--attempts by law enforcement, survivors seeking restitution, advocacy groups demanding laws be changed-- the CEO of Backpage, Carl Ferrer plead guilty in federal court for his role in trafficking many women and children over the years. His plea and agreement to testify against others will very likely shut down Backpage worldwide. This development portends an end to sex trafficking as we know it in America. Join us in celebrating and especially in thanking the US Department of Justice for finally striking at the heart of sex trafficking in America by targeting the largest facilitator
Herss an article I found on it
https://www.reuters.com/article/us-backpage-california-trafficking/backpage-com-ceo-arrested-over-sex-trafficking-allegations-idUSKCN1262IW

So I google backpage and the FIRST RESULT is an article defending it by interviewing some random nolifes
https://www.thecut.com/2018/04/7-sex-workers-on-what-it-means-to-lose-backpage.html
Do people not see that these sex workers CONTRIBUTED to the problem! And what kind of sympathy are they hoping to glean, these people are PATHETIC.

And then we go to the black hole of sensible rhetoric, the womens march, who apparantly have an invested stake in supporting an industry that exploits mainly women https://www.weeklystandard.com/jeryl-bier/womens-march-angered-by-demise-of-backpagecom-which-enabled-sex-trafficking
Because theyre retards.

Also I guess the Clinton foundation accepted donations from Backpage, so theres that. (Now I know where the republican talk radio shows get their material)

I am sorry, I made this topic too specific. This is a thing for all of SESTA/FOSTA

I think this is just a case of the internet being lobotomized though.

Actually if you go to youtube and look up SESTA/FOSTA you get the same crap but have the privilege of seeing that they only get a few thousand views.

But man, sex workers are terrible people. I found this twitter of a sex worker all rallying to save Backpage even after this.
And if sex workers are truly doing it """consensually""", then they'd do it for free. Otherwise it's an inherently exploitable business. It's an institution that needs to not exist. Illegally, or legally.

But it's the internet being lobotomized.

It's excellent that this happened, but I've noticed as of late that I've been (at least most of the time) numb to pathological sexual behavior, but with this CEO being arrested, I feel I guess some kind of hope

@xenosimiana
I'm not sure what you mean, what do you mean exactly?

Edit: To clear up an earlier post. Sesta/fosta (Stop enabling sex trafficking act/Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act) being passed in DC with a large majority is part of the reason this happened, or at least it's related.

Look at this tho
 SESTA was criticized by pro-free speech groups for weakening section 230 safe harbors, alleging that it would make providers become liable for any usage of their platforms that facilitates sex trafficking, knowingly if they moderate for such content, and with reckless disregard if they do not proactively take steps to prevent such usage

How does this weaken free speech?? Prostitition is already illegal, much moreso human trafficking for crying out loud. I'm pretty sure child porn has similar laws as well, this isn't anything new. Freaking idiots.

The so-called "womens' march" proving itself to be astroturf yet again.  Not surprised if it's true about the Clintons - at this point I don't think there's a low point for them.

I mean, the people interviewed in the article lost a major source of income. Regardless of what the CEO might have done in the name of the company, the people who were using the site honestly (presumably the vast majority) to make a living were severely adversely affected. Is there something you have against them that I'm missing?

The people I was referring to were prostitutes, yes I have something against prostitutes and those who buy them. 

And number one on that list is that the culture they foster results in things like human trafficking and sexual coercion. (Prostitution is by definition sexual coercion anyway).

Adding to the already problematic base of prostitution is the un-necessity (They lost their "Job" oh boohoo now they're going to have to get a real one) and ILLEGALITY of prostitution, I consider these people as culpable in the matter as much as I consider people who buy from a drug dealer culpable in cartel crimes. Doubly so when they speak out like this.

Well, we're not on the same page with that, so it's probably not worth arguing.

I didn't say they were the sole reason, I said they were part of the reason to some degree which I don't believe is arguable. I coupled that with the fact that what they're doing is illegal and unnecessary to make my point.

What I would like to be clear is if you're pro-prostitution or not. i'd find that a weird position to run on as an antisexual.
I interpreted your post to be either a misunderstanding or some need to play DA when you perceived me being possibly unnecessarily harsh.

I'm actually neutral about them. I don't see why someone would bother with one, but throwing a few hundred dollars at someone to do a job for you is nothing compared to using someone you know for that. I would never go to one, I would never send someone to one, and I certainly consider it a bad idea, but in the end they're just people who have no better way of getting money that are making use of the fact there's a demand they can supply. In that sense, I suppose my stance on them is analogous to drug dealers.

Additionally, the sex they do for work isn't the same thing as it is to us or the masses. A hooker hired by an 80 year old...probably isn't having too good of a time. They're just doing their work. Are they also probably sleeping with a bunch of people who aren't paying them, purely for pleasure? Sure, but most people do that anyway.

I don't see why prostitutes are any different from any other scam artists.  Sure, there are scam artists that need to grift because there is nothing else in this society, but no one is weeping for the poor scam artists when they're pulling an obvious scam.  There is no reason to consider the act of prostitution legitimate or something to protect.

In an ideal world, no man would debase himself by buying a lie.  That's the only real solution to consider.  I believe in the end, most men will have no choice but to be antisexual - the reality that most of humanity will be reduced to something worse than slavery, is too much a curse for a new life.  That's why the deliberate degradation of men by our current ruling class, that's why men are infantilized, they need to put off the inevitable.

"but in the end they're just people who have no better way of getting money"

Idk about all that. There's always choices except those that were forced into it. It's the same with drug dealers in my experience with friends that had family members who sold drugs and my research of various criminals throughout the decades in my neck of the woods that did the same. One of the reasons why people get into prostitution and selling drugs is because it's fast money, but just because a job does that, doesn't mean it's the only way to get money.

I'll also add that the infantilizing and objectification of women and degradation and indoctrination of both women, girls (and boys) for quite a long time esp. through prostitution stifles progress, even with countries that consider themselves civilized.
