backpage

Following the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict, attention has turned toward an alleged sex trafficking victim from Wisconsin who shot and killed her abuser.
That’s a big switch for the Democratic presidential candidate, whom sex workers have criticized for good reason.
This bill was supposed to fight sex trafficking. But it's driving women back to a riskier, pre-internet world of sex work.
Backpage has only been closed a short amount of time, but people are terrified and desperate and have no choice but to hit the streets.
Advocates say the legislation conflates consensual sex workers and trafficked victims, leaving many sex workers to face even more dangerous conditions.
The federal government had seized the classifieds website, which featured ads for sex work, days before.
Alas, before the hearings were even completed, we realized Backpage had already simply moved prostitution ads over to its dating site, using terms like "Young" and "Fresh." As if no one would notice.
