Quick Thoughts on Kraft and Human Traffickers

Personally, I have no moral judgment against consenting adults receiving money for sex from other consenting adults, as long as all parties concerned are doing so completely from a place of free will. I don’t think it’s my place to judge what consenting adults do with each other behind closed doors, including whether money is exchanged between them or not. But, it’s a different matter altogether with trafficked individuals, who have been captured and imprisoned into a life of prostitution. Shame on both the traffickers and purchasers of the “services” provided in such heinous, criminal circumstances. Robert Kraft and others should know better. To Kraft et al, I say, find unfettered consenting adults for sexual servicing and stop perpetuating a cycle of brutal exploitation. And I do think that paying for sex with a trafficked individual should be considered a serious felony offense, and an even more grave one if the person is a minor.

This incident involving Kraft is yet another example of largely rich white males continuing to exploit women and minorities in this skewed, power-imbalanced culture. Nothing new, sadly, but well-worth fighting to stop.

  1. Thank you for bringing up this subject. I was shocked to read the story that showed up on my computer this morning. It never ceases to amaze me how these rich, powerful men can do such things and think they won’t get caught or if they do, will get away with it. Especially those men who are in a position to set an example for the young men that look up to them.

    1. Agreed. All I can think of is how wealthy, privileged men, who subsequently have a lot of power, have gotten away with this and so much else for centuries (and beyond) that they give it no thought to do whatever they want with impunity. My hope is that there is the beginning of a sea change towards reversing this awful pattern in society.
