Child sex slavery is commonly thought of as a problem that only takes place in third world countries. However, unfortunately it takes place right in the U.S. as well! One such case included that of a 47-year-old man, Dennis Pittman, who, along with a

....'something' is SEVERELY WRONG with today's Society :(

" These children should not have to be forced to live a life of torture and fear, only to be punished for it. I respectfully urge that you focus on the predator by adjusting laws to ensure the arrest and punishment of the pimp and/or person who sold the child instead of the victim and to ensure that the victim receives the necessary medical and emotional treatment."

We must not let innocent children, or women brought to America on false pretenses, then sold into sex slavery and abused, suffer! We must demand that laws ensure criminal penalties against perpetrators.

The monsters behind this are the lowest scum of the earth. What I'd like to know is, why has this horrible thing been successful in this country? THIS country??? Why hasn't anything been done about it before now? There must be some good reason, and it's my guess that money has something to do with it. Some pigs are getting rich off it.

Raise your hand if you enjoy porn (and child sex slaves)! Oh didn't wanna hear the truth? Sorry. (But not really). When are people gonna stop hiding their heads in the sand and listen to the truth? The truth hurts and so do child sex slaves and pornography. The two go hand in hand. 1 in 4 regular population of women in the U.S. were sexually abused at one point...that number jumps to 90% in the porn industry. Stop the hurt, stand up against the pain of pornography.

It is sad that this sex trade is endemic and not just to the US although it does appear to be prevalent there.

Sexualisation of little girls starts at a very early age with the beauty pageants for girls of 4 and 5 which is shown on UK TV. It appalls and disgusts me that any parent would be involved with this. I then see other programmes aimed at little girls such as Hannah Montana where dressing up in "adult" clothes is important and the magazines & TV programmes promote how to catch a boyfriend to 8 year olds! We are seeing anorexia in girls as young as 3 and this is not uncommon.

This petition is just part of what happens, we need to stop this. In the UK the gvernment is trying to stop provocative clothes for little girls. What this indicates is that business is taking this as a serious form of making money and does not care about the result. What is worse is that the parents do not see anything wrong with this!

Some 22 years ago a friend of mine went shopping with her husband and this included underwear for her 3 year old daughter. Whilst she was looking at vests and knickers with cute animals (or whatever it was back then) her husband picked up some THONGS and thought that their little girl would be chuffed to wear the same pants as her Mum. I won't tell you what she said but this was in a very reputable chain of clothing shops!

I believe that children should be children and if you look at the knitting patterns on the 60s (my Mum has some) you can see that the 13 & 14 year old children modelling have a child's face. Now, they look like grown ups with knowing faces. I am deeply sorry that children today have far too short a childhood and wish that, for them, the clock can be turned back.
