SUPPLY AND DEMAND

I have searched the internet high and low this morning for a suitable image to put on this post. To those of you I'm talking about I hope it makes you feel a little guilty, but it probably won't. To the rest of you I hope it pulls a few heart strings and maybe make you as angry as I am.

The face of Scotland's (and no doubt the rest of the country) Sex Trade business has taken a sinister turn.

I'm not against prostitution, its a service, and if you want to provide that service, as long as you are a free thinking adult thats OK, as is the taking advantage of that service, if you feel the need.


Scotland on Sunday can reveal that police are gathering shocking new evidence of children targeted by gangs overseas and brought into the UK, sold between brothels and taken to private flats and houses in Glasgow, where they are forced to work as prostitutes.

Rather than post the whole piece out of the newspaper I think the above paragraph just about says it all.

It makes a big song and dance about the trafficking in human beings, the ease with which Slovakian girls can be brought into the country illegally. You can have a 12 year old for as little as £10 it states with the maximum charge of about £30. If you want an adult Glaswegian prostitute it will cost at least £60.

So its brought down to the level of foreign goods being cheaper and therefore the demand is higher.

If a man wants to buy a jumper made abroad because it's cheaper he doesn't have a mental problem or a perversion, just a tight wallet.

The demand for child prostitutes is explained away by the fact that they are cheaper and not drug addicts like the adult Glaswegian prostitutes.

It's about supply and demand. If there wasn't a demand, it would not be supplied - it's that simple.

If you want to have sex with a child, it's nothing to do with the price.

So, isn't it about time we tackled the demand, for crying out loud?

anonymous, whoever you are, this is not a porno picture of a child, it is of a series of photographs by a famous photographer who specialises in catching childrens emotions. For you to suggest such a thing just shows what a dirty nasty mind you have so if you havn't got the guts to name yourself - piss off.
