The Significance of Victories Against Online Sex Trafficking

Rep. Ann Wagner & Rep. Mimi Walters co-authored an important opinion piece in the Washington Examiner. You can read it here, and check out the excerpt below:

“This month, we took a major step forward to combat the online sex trafficking industry when H.R. 1865, the Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act, or FOSTA, became law. This legislation will give federal, state, and local prosecutors the tools they need to ensure that online businesses can no longer exploit children, women, and men with impunity. It will also allow survivors to seek justice against the websites that knowingly facilitated their sale and abuse.”

Terry Crews Speaks Out About How Many Men Treat Women

 width=Terry Crews, the actor and ex-football player, has spoken out recently about the need for men to respect women.

He even connected the dots that strip clubs are inherently dehumanizing.

He stated: “You go to the strip club, and here’s the woman, and the whole thing. And once she starts talking about that she has kids or she starts talking about anything in her life, it’s like, ‘Stop, stop, stop.’ Because [she’s] becoming a human before my eyes. I don’t want you to be a human. I want you to be an object… But as you talk, you’re making things too real for me.”

We are grateful for Terry Crews taking a stand against degrading women, and upholding real, respectful masculinity!

ICYMI: Good news! Amazon removed hundreds of child-like sex dolls from their  width=online marketplace!

Action Alert: Click here to email Amazon executives to thank them for this improvement, but also to ask them to remove all sex dolls.

In our #MeToo world, it’s hypocritical and harmful for companies to profit off of literally turning women into sex objects.
