Ever wonder why so many men have bought into the “sex trafficking” fantasy?  Part of it, as I’ve discussed before, is that insecure men need to believe that men are the ones in control of the sexual sphere.  But if that were all of it, they’d content themselves with merely believing in it; why do so many of them feel it’s their sacred duty to keep women from earning an income?  I don’t just mean cops and politicians, either; one of the most vociferously-awful groups of busyodies is made up of men who drive vehicles for a living, especially large trucks.  Take this recent article from NBC Yellow about “Truckers Against Trafficking”, a circle-jerk of prudish teamsters whose “sex trafficking” propaganda is some of the most blatantly derived from sexual fantasy in the entire rescue industry.  The lede breathlessly informs us that “traffickers often exploit the transportation system to move their victims“; presumably before reading this, Americans believed sex workers got around by dirigible, log raft, howdah, broomstick and astral projection.  But I’ll save you the trouble of reading the rest:  it’s yet another restatement of the silly fantasy that marginalized sex workers who frequent truck stops are part of some huge international criminal cartel out of frustrated wannabes’ sexual fantasies.  Immature men who want to be “heroes” without putting in the work and brainpower necessary to become, say, a defense lawyer or medical researcher, instead console their pathetic fee-fees by becoming a cop or by calling the cops on women who dare to try to make a living outside of kitchens, sweatshops, elementary schools or secretarial pools.  All authoritarian societies must control women in order to control the future, and men in the middle or lower parts of the social pyramid are told they are “heroes” by helping to keep women In Our Place.  And so belonging to “Truckers Against Trafficking” is an all-around win for them:  they get to belong to something bigger than themselves; to enjoy the dual fantasy that they are “heroes” and women helpless, passive “victims” who are too stupid to even come up with a simple business plan like “hawk your wares where there are buyers”; and to turn those fucking bitches in to the pigs for daring to charge their heroic selves for something they think they’re entitled to for free.
