Boys and Sex-Trafficking World Wide



Trans-America: Selling Boys for Sex in the U.S. Capitol
"Every day in the capitol of the U.S., boys identifying as gay or transgender are bought and sold for sex by adult men. In Washington D.C., suburban “Johns” with gold wedding bands drive nice cars into the city to regularly solicit these youths for sex. LGBTQ sex trafficking, and especially transgender sex trafficking, is a grossly misunderstood issue. Fortunately, Courtney’s House in Washington, D.C. is one of the few organizations in the country recognizing trafficking of LGBTQ people."

Wikileaks Reveals U.S. Tax Dollars Fund Child Sex Slavery in Afghanistan

 This company, DynCorp, who is in charge of security in Afganishtan, hired boys for one(and probably many) of their company parties. This form of entertainment is called Bacha bazi, where "young boys are dressed up in women's clothing, forced to dance for leering men, and then sold for sex to the highest bidder." Change.org notes that 95% of their funding comes from OUR TAX MONEY. "That's your tax dollars at work -- fighting terrorism and extremism in Afghnistan by trafficking little boys for sex with cops-in-training." DynCorp also was caught using its money to buy sex in Bosnia in 1999. This is absurd.
