Teen Vogue Promotes Human Trafficking and Encourages Young Teens to Be “Sex Workers”

Teen Vogue is known for their vulgar and brash articles encouraging teens to become promiscuous and abort their babies, but their latest article has officially crossed the line.

In fact, Teen Vogue had the sheer audacity to post an article promoting “sex work” and attempt to portray it as a “women’s right” issue.

But this dangerous endorsement of women selling their bodies for financial gain actually promotes human trafficking and could actually lead to young teen girls being sold into sex-trafficking.

Pimps and sexual predators’ prey to the vulnerability and innocence of young women.

Often teens are lured into human trafficking by a “Romeo pimp” (a guy who buys a girl many gifts and pretends to be her boyfriend before he then turns on her) or by the guise of “financial freedom.”

And once a girl is in the system, pending a miracle it’s almost too late.

Sure, some girls escape but will have constant trauma for the rest of their lives.

Other girls are continually sexually exploited, and many contract sexually-related diseases and end up dead.

But instead of posting articles warning young girls about the dangers of human trafficking, Teen Vogue did just the opposite.

They actually posted a piece encouraging young girls to “sell” their bodies for money claiming it is the ultimate support of “feminism.”

Teen Vogue reported:

“Sex workers must be affirmed through upholding and the protection of their human rights to autonomy, dignity, fair labor practices, access to evidence-based care. It is for this and many other reasons that I believe sex work and sex worker rights are women’s rights, health rights, labor rights, and the litmus test for intersectional feminism.

Further, the impact of continued criminalization of the majority of sex workers, most of whom are cisgender women and transgender women, mean that sex worker rights are a feminist issue. If you support women’s rights, I urge you to support the global demand for sex work decriminalization, and fund evidence and rights-based intersectional programs aimed at sex workers and their clients.”

This bizarre article goes on to promote the sacred act of sex as a “transaction” that a woman should be “paid for” and that the “profession” should be decriminalized.

But it’s no secret many of the women trapped in prostitution are victims of human trafficking.

And this article is a slap in the face to all the countless women who are continuing to be sold again and again.

It’s irresponsible and morally reprehensible Teen Vogue allowed this article to see the light of day.

It is not empowering to teach a young woman it’s okay for other men to use her as an object for financial gain.

The disgusting article even went on to justify the work claiming that sex work “supports families.”

And the worst part of all is this article plays to vulnerable girls leading them to believe that “sex work” is a viable option for paying the bills.

If anything, Teen Vogue’s article is a “win” for sexual predators as it attempts to provide cover for their deeds.

Our young girls need to learn real empowerment – which means respecting one’s body and learning boundaries – and tips on how to stay safe from sexual predators.

Shame on Teen Vogue!

The blood of innocent girls is on their hands, and this latest article shows just how far the moral fabric of society has declined.
