DarkVader: Just another Heartland Weirdass: trivial use of my dark powers: Why haven't her parents been arrested AND these brothels selling sex with kids been closed down and all involved arrested? And beaten? And shot? In the kneecaps?

Because she made them up?
Ill go ahead and be the Adam Henry here. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. Is there any proof of this?

Yeah, this sounds pretty fantastical to me. I think we may have another Duke rape on our hands here...


I'm wondering about the claim that her parents would leave her in brothels for weeks on end -- if she was a big overachiever in school, were brothel personnel dropping her off, or did they make sure only to send her there during vacations? Also, what sort of ads could her parents place in the Vietnamese language papers that would attract customers but not cause someone to call the police? If they were placed, there will presumably be a paper trail of some sort. I'm not saying something bad didn't happen to her, but those were two parts of the story that made me hope there's some confirming evidence they're not mentioning in the article, because otherwise, hmmm ....

I wont argue it does not happen. I am just not ready to believe her without some solid evidence.
Again, I'm a skeptic, not a denier.


I think what happens in these stories is her own definition for her life experiences changes. When she was young she probably accepted her sexual experiences as a 'normal' life. And I would expect with a large majority of teenagers, what she experiences was close enough to normal.

I would bet her parents got nothing for her spending time at the 'brothels' except the kind of community acceptance that inspires play-dates, sleepovers and road-trips. Her community probably had more of a culture of permissiveness. In non-puritan groups, if teenagers want to join in flirty or full relationships then it's just match making between families.

...and then she gets to college, learns that people want to find stories like hers to jeer at as the depths of depravity, and decides she can make a case for having been human trafficked.

Not saying one way or the other but this needs to be said.

I was 14ish before I realised that being sexually abused was wrong. I actually found out by watching some movie of the week with Ted Danson, Something About Ameilia, I think. I was raised by a wealthy, prominent, family. They were pillars of the community yet very insular. I was not allowed to form bonds, only select friends, and church. You usually go the overachiever or the trainwreck. Soas not to destroy the only life you know you do not say anything to anyone. The guilt is massive. The knowledge of services available is limited and when I was in my late teens it was not talked about. Getting into the mind games it plays on you, especially through puberty is a whole other ball of wax.

When I did leave home, I did not disclose because it would cut me off from everybody I know. After meeting my husband I recieved the support I needed. We disclosed (which is emotionally brutal) and were told point blank by the authorities, your word against theirs, you will end up going through hell and maybe if convicted they will get a suspended sentence.

Now in my 40s I have no contact with my parents, any family or any life I had before I disclosed. I bumped into a cousine once and the scuttlebut is that I was hypnotised and a memory was implanted. I shiat you not.

So, it's not always as easy as it seems.

spidermilk: Since some of you are in complete disbelief at her story, here are some links:

The U.S. State Department has estimated that approximately 600,000 to 800,000 victims are trafficked annually across international borders worldwide and approximately half of these victims are younger than age 18 (U.S. Department of State, 2005, 2006, 2007).

FBI Report on Human Trafficking in the US

-Federally funded task forces opened 2,515 suspected incidents of human trafficking for investigation between January 2008 and June 2010.
-About 8 in 10 of the suspected incidents of human trafficking were classified as sex trafficking, and about 1 in 10 incidents were classified as labor trafficking.
-The confirmed human trafficking incidents open for at least a year led to 144 known arrests.

I'm not saying that this proves what she said is true, but it does prove that this stuff happens in this country.


No one is disputing that this happens in the US. It's fairly common knowledge.

You know, I feel shiatty saying this, but as someone who was messed with as a kid, the fact that she willingly stuck with the situation in return for tuition, even though she was out of there, even though she was a smart girl with options....that just pisses me right the fark off.

I know, I know...I don't know her, don't really know her story...but it does, and I can't help it. I am angered by this.

Hero tag for the parents? They scared her sexually at a young age so she wouldn't be thinking about that sort of thing in college, and it worked really well.

2012-12-22 01:45:08 PM
I know there is trafficking. But a few things don't add up.

1)usually when parents give up children for sex slavery- the brothel owns the kid- not rent them

2) why would the parents allow their little money maker to go to school? In fact- being a straight A student and active in school activities would take up too much time from whorin!.

3) message parlor/strip clubs as fronts? Sure. Cafe? Seems too risky as normal people would notice... And strange.

4) seems strange that she tell her parents off after they paid the final bill.
 
2012-12-22 01:49:41 PM

RoyBatty: All in all, it's a strange news report because it doesn't provide obvious and relatively easily obtained details that might corroborate her story. Police reports, names or locations of these brothels, or customers, etc.


I agree - wouldn't these brothels that she was sold in have been investigated and either shut down (with multiple arrests) or found to just be cafes?  It really does seem like this is pretty easy to prove or disprove, as stories go.  I can't imagine that nobody has investigated these claims, as other children were and are being hurt in these places.  It is either incredibly shoddy reporting or something doesn't add up.

No, most of the stuff on the news out here that involves Asian organized crime is either out of a cafe/restaurant, or out of a crappy suburban house. And they don't seem to get how the neighbors will complain if 800 cars are coming and going and parking on the lawn all day and night.

Ill go ahead and be the Adam Henry here. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. Is there any proof of this?

Yeah, I'd hate to be a cynic, but this sounds really fishy.

Maybe it's a personal coping mechanism, but my first thought was : smells like b.s. someone is looking for a book deal.


Apparently you've missed the articles published every now and then documenting how this stuff happens. The authorities know it happens. But unless the trafficked women speak up and agree to press charges, the perps walk. All those "Asian Massage" places on the interstate? Sex slaves. They keep their passports etc and pass the women around from one place to another. There's a very strong element of organized crime in the Vietnamese community and they treat people like this. And nobody says a word because the victims think that honor is more important, or they know that the police are the last ones you go to for help (that is true in most of the world), or they are convinced that their families will be killed by the gangs. And often the local authorities are bought off so that there's no trouble as long as the girls stay quiet.

And considering that the average prostitute begins her "career" at age 12, 10 years old isn't unbelievable. Once you start delving into the whole child sex trafficking issue, it becomes obvious that this sort of thing happens far more frequently than many people want to believe.

But no, what we really need to target are the illegal roofers. Because Americans will roof. And they will fark children. But they often won't sell their own children to one another to fark (although they will fark their own children, many of my past girlfriends went through that in their childhood). Therefore, illegal roofers take jobs, child prostitutes generally do not. So we go after the roofers rather than the criminal gangs.

The unusual thing is that she actually is saying what is going on. Most of the time, they won't say a thing because of a bunch of reasons. In this instance, she "worked off" the cost of raising her including college, just without any input into the matter. It probably was the parents' plan from the beginning. Hence the abuse before she turned 10. It was to condition her to the business. And yes there are families out there (from many backgrounds) who think along similar lines. Kids are expensive. Medical bills can pile up real quick. The kid incurrs debt, the kid can pay the debt off.

Her story seems made up to me. Maybe I'm too skeptical since I have heard "Obama is a Muslim" so earnestly repeated.

There is an interview from 2010 where she claims she recalls her father molesting her at the age of 2. Memories that early are rare and lack age associations.

You might check out "My Lie" by Meredith Maran. "During the 1980s and 1990s, tens of thousands of Americans became convinced that they'd repressed memories of childhood sexual abuse, and then, decades later, recovered those memories in therapy."

Actually, having read the farking poorly written article, she was pimped by Mom and Dad, not sold into slavery.

Still really shiatty situation, but the proper terminology isn't as inflammatory.

I'll admit I am jaded, but if she had been sold into slavery, in the US, her parents would be in prison right now. There is no statute of limitations on the slavery issue. Pimping charges run out after 10 years.

RoyBatty:

She was abused at 2-3 years old by her father, and she was trafficked starting at 10 years old.


Wow, that can't happen in the real world, can it.


This even occurred in Berkeley, California for her first two years at Cal,

Prostitutes in Berkeley? Inconceivable!


even though her parents lived in Mountain View (or Los Altos) apparently, because her parents were paying her school bills.

Thr family business. If her parents were dairy farmers maybe she'd have to milk some cows; for her parents' money she had to milk pigs.


All in all, she brought in $2,000,000 dollars to her parents.

I do question any figure like that. It sounds like cop math. Do her parents keep detailed records? That it happened at all is bad enough, even if they gave her away for free.


All in all, it's a strange news report because it doesn't provide obvious and relatively easily obtained details that might corroborate her story.

I agree. No parent could ever be less than sweet to such a pretty baby girl. How dare she tell such lies!1!


Police reports, names or locations of these brothels, or customers, etc.

You know, I dunno, maybe... Maybe some of these people who'd pimp out or rape a 10 year old might get upset if their names were dragged through the mud in public? Like, you know, like it might involve some kind of criminal charges and maybe jail time, perhaps? And that sometimes people who do such things are not very nice when you piss them off? I know I'm really stretching here, it does sound far-fetched that somebody who'd pimp out kids or pay to rape them could ever hurt anybody, but still it's technically possible isn't it?

Sheesh. Is water wet on your planet?

Yeah, I know. She couldn't even have the decency to go on welfare or kill herself or anything like respectable American.

Some people deliver pizza to put themselves through college. Some people run up humongous credit card bills. And some people prostitute themselves, especially if they've already been doing it since they were 10.

 Nail salons are a common front for prostitution.

They are?!? Oh. So NOW ya tell me. Here I sit thinking I'll never get a BJ again.

At least most of the Asian brothel hookers I read about here in KY, who work(ed) out of massage parlors and "day spas," are over 35. If you let your parents push you around at age 35 there's something wrong with you.

The One True TheDavid: rogue_L_chick:

You know, I feel shiatty saying this, but as someone who was messed with as a kid, the fact that she willingly stuck with the situation in return for tuition, even though she was out of there, even though she was a smart girl with options....that just pisses me right the fark off.

Yeah, I know. She couldn't even have the decency to go on welfare or kill herself or anything like respectable American.

Some people deliver pizza to put themselves through college. Some people run up humongous credit card bills. And some people prostitute themselves, especially if they've already been doing it since they were 10.

I know it's hard to believe that anybody would do anything hard to make a better life for themselves in the future, but stranger things have happened.

This is not to say I believe every jot and tittle of everything she says, only that I watched on TV when astronauts walked in the moon. Sometimes ya gotta suspend disbelief.


I am not saying she should have folded and let life kick her ass...nor am I so convinced she could have done anything other than what she did. I am merely confused by her situation and the method/timing/etc of her declaration. It is so far removed from how I understand things and my own motivators that I am just...confused. That's all. No good way to describe it. I am in no way saying there is a "right" way to handle such a life, I am certainly not one to know. I just don't get it.
