It just needs ads on the side for locations that sell pimp canes.

This doesn't seem out of the ordinary. They have fund managers on CNN Money all the time.

You start with a 'talent search', tell the girls you are a Hollywood producer looking for a singer / dancer to be in the music industry - you can make them a star!

Then, its time to go on tour! Hop in the van, we're going to Beverly Hills! We have a meeting with Ryan Seacrest next week.

Uh oh! We need gas money for the van and money for the hotel. How can we make some quick cash? I know! How about we get you dancing?...

Oh, we're going to need some more money to get us to Hollywood how about....

Nice title, yet none of the girls in the story were legally underage.

Fark's discovering that putting references to child porn in a troll headline is as much referrer-revenue as putting a gun argument in a headline. Its all about the referrer clicks.

minoridiot: Nice title, yet none of the girls in the story were legally underage.


Not necessarily - the 18 year old traveled across state lines for this, and so it's reasonable to assume that maybe one of the 16 or 17 year olds did, too... In which case, it's federal and the age there is 18.

She was smitten, and willing to do anything for the man she thought loved her. So she stayed. Keeping the attention of her "boyfriend" required selling herself for sex

Yeah, what kind of childhood would teach someone that that is love.  Did dad discipline with the pimp hand?  Did daddy always 'hugged' mom with both hands around her neck?  I have heard of 'If you love me, you would have sex with me', but not 'If you love me, you will have sex with as many men it will take to buy me a new car'.  I hope her mother is face palming.

I posted a video of a puppy chewing on a rubber biscuit, thankfully I now know that all the people that "liked" it were just sweet talking me, telling me what I wanted to hear, and trying to lure me into their stable of unwilling sex workers.

so yah
along with not teaching our children about sex, we are also not teaching them about abuse.
how to recognize, how to report it, how to get help. whether it is happening to you, your mom, your friends.
and god forbid,  we do anything to stop the cycle

this and this
I get it. You are an abuse victim. You have the victim mentality. I get it. I have learned a TON about PTSD and rape in the last couple of years. I get that this is NOT a new thing for the girl. She has probably been abused all of her life and been a victim all of her life.

The WORST thing that I learned recently, was the changes that take place in the brain.

I guess we have had a war on children for a long time and have not even begun to admit that we should do something. Let alone what that something should be. FFS, they run away. Think how bad things must be at home, that it is easier to run away and be a street whore instead??

I know better now .... sigh ....
we get stuck in the trap of thinking that they "should" be able to think. if it were that easy, abuse would die out in one generation.
every abused person would walk out on their abuser, report them to the police and be free. sigh if only.

Have you heard: fool me once, shame on you;  Fool me twice, shame on me?  Well she was fooled into meeting him, then she was 'fooled' into prostitution.  Do you see where she went from victim to stupid?

Nothing about drugs or abuse to keep her line, just stand on this corner and turn tricks.  She had the choice to break away, and we know this because she got away.  At some point this girl actually thought "If I keep selling myself, he will take me away and start the dream life he promised."  A victim is someone who wants to be away and can't, stupid stays even though they can leave.

2013-03-01 06:34:08 PM  
FTA: Nina describes being raped, beaten with a pistol, and, once, locked in a closet for 24 hours. Beyond the physical threats, shame kept her from running away.
"I didn't want to tell my parents, 'Ya know, this is what I'm doing,'" she says. "How am I going to explain that to my father? That wasn't an option for me at all."


I don't get this. However stupidly we might have blundered my parents would never have replied to such information with anything like "How shameful, don't come home!" My mother might be worried what people might say but she'd get to that later, and my dad would have been furious and want to shoot the pimp.

What kind of parent would turn their offspring away or blame the victim after something like that? It's understandable for a parent to say "That was stupid, didn't we teach you better?" among other (and hopefully more supportive) things, but if your kid's afraid to tell you about such trouble you have failed as a parent and a human being.

Sorry, but I cant feel sorry for someone this dumb.

Ohhh look her mom is in prison for "financial crimes". Sorry ... I am going back to laughing at this ... woman? 18? adult.


Really, you are telling me you have no sympathy for the victim of a crime because of her IQ?

So it's okay to brutalize people as long as they are stupid?

lack of warmth: INeedAName: Gotten a lot of blame the victim posts on Fark lately, glad to see all the idiots have jumped ship!

Have you heard: fool me once, shame on you;  Fool me twice, shame on me?  Well she was fooled into meeting him, then she was 'fooled' into prostitution.  Do you see where she went from victim to stupid?

Nothing about drugs or abuse to keep her line, just stand on this corner and turn tricks.  She had the choice to break away, and we know this because she got away.  At some point this girl actually thought "If I keep selling myself, he will take me away and start the dream life he promised."  A victim is someone who wants to be away and can't, stupid stays even though they can leave.


You should read more about the psychology of abuse. The abused person doesn't just walk away because they feel like 1) they are the only person who can help the person they love work through their demons 2) their sense of self worth is so shattered that they feel like they deserve what is happening to them.

I hope you never find yourself in this kind of a situation. The ability to walk away has nothing to do with intelligence, and everything to do with self esteem and good role models for positive, loving relationships.

The One True TheDavid: FTA: Nina describes being raped, beaten with a pistol, and, once, locked in a closet for 24 hours. Beyond the physical threats, shame kept her from running away.
"I didn't want to tell my parents, 'Ya know, this is what I'm doing,'" she says. "How am I going to explain that to my father? That wasn't an option for me at all."

I don't get this. However stupidly we might have blundered my parents would never have replied to such information with anything like "How shameful, don't come home!" My mother might be worried what people might say but she'd get to that later, and my dad would have been furious and want to shoot the pimp.


Yeah, I would have thought that too. But when push came to shove my mom told a sexual assault victim "how could you let this happen to you?!?". We all shouted her down and told her that a 6 year old had no ability to prevent something like that, and the fault was entirely upon the abuser.


What kind of parent would turn their offspring away or blame the victim after something like that? It's understandable for a parent to say "That was stupid, didn't we teach you better?" among other (and hopefully more supportive) things, but if your kid's afraid to tell you about such trouble you have failed as a parent and a human being.

Yeah, some people are lucky enough to have good supportive families. They probably aren't the ones where the mother ends up in jail for financial crimes.

ALAS
The mean person in me makes fun of her, not because of low IQ, but because what kind of a moron.
The knowledgeable adult accepts the fact that this woman has been abused all her life.
(We know that she isnt LOW IQ, because she was college bound.)
I know enough about abuse to want to help society work on the abuse problem. But her? I know that there is nothing that anyone can do to help her until she helps herself. She is still playing the victim card. Sucks, but welcome to PTSD 101.

I have helped people close to me in this situation. I donate to groups working to help and reduce this problem.

But sympathy? I am out. I need it for my friends in need. For those that I know.

/yes, I need to work on being more the adult and less the mean kid.
/She was on the NATIONAL STAGE! Did she mention the people who abused her when she was younger? The lack of support and services to help reduce that? Or did she just talk about the horrible things that have happened to her?
/I watch the people I know, working through the HELL. I watch them get "better" and pay it forward. It breaks your soul. FOR THEM I will save my sympathy and efforts. Those with hope.
/sucks
/it just SUCKS

vernonFL: You start with a 'talent search', tell the girls you are a Hollywood producer looking for a singer / dancer to be in the music industry - you can make them a star!

Then, its time to go on tour! Hop in the van, we're going to Beverly Hills! We have a meeting with Ryan Seacrest next week.

Uh oh! We need gas money for the van and money for the hotel. How can we make some quick cash? I know! How about we get you dancing?...

Oh, we're going to need some more money to get us to Hollywood how about....


Or, if you're Jewish or look it, just say, "my brother's a casting director!  Surck mah bawls!"

Yes, but he loves his mom and doesn't want to make her feel bad because then she will stop tricking for him.
