Florida Passes Pro-Sex Trafficking Bill

Florida celebrated International Women’s Day last week by stripping women of even more rights. State lawmakers unanimously approved a bill raising the stripper age to 21, banning 18- to 20-year-olds from working in any capacity at adult entertainment venues.

House Bill 7063 claims to be an “anti-human trafficking” bill, but we all know it’s just another attempt to exercise control over women, to push-up the boundaries of adulthood and buy more time to convert them to Conservatism before they succumb to the dark side of Liberal wokeness …and whoreism.

Unfortunately, this bill will have an opposite effect, posing an even greater threat by increasing sex trafficking of 18- to 20-year-olds. When an 18- to 20-year-old woman who is legally allowed to do whatever she wants with her body is suddenly stripped (for lack of a better word) of her right to perform publicly, she’s given no choice but to seek work in the “private” sector — that is, in the shadier, far more dangerous sides of the industry.

What’s left is a world of “private dancing”, bachelor parties, sugar daddies, and yes, johns. The lucky ones might find success in turning to porn. Others may turn to OnlyFans and camming. But many will likely fall prey to trafficking. Rest assured, right now in Florida there are shady pimp-types celebrating the news, waiting in the shadows to take full advantage of these 18- to 20-year-olds’ newfound vulnerabilities.

I spoke to a 20-year-old college student today who has been dancing at a club on weekends for the past year as a means to pay her way through school while providing for her young son. Now that she’s losing her job, she’s forced to find “work” on sites like Sugar Daddy Meet and Seeking Arrangement to make the kind of money she’s used to, in what little time she has — and let’s be real, it’s not “dancing”. Sites like that are great, but it’s far more dangerous meeting strangers in-person for “arrangements” than dancing for them at a bar with bouncers and security around.

Ultimately, this bill will force more women into sex trafficking than it saves from it. Hopefully, more of them will turn to the safety of camming than actual sex work. But when you got mouths to feed and bills to pay, you’re gonna take it wherever you can get it.

And Florida just limited women’s options even more. Bottom line, this bill is going to encourage more sex trafficking of women than it will protect them from it.

From a Constitutional standpoint, I’m curious to see where this goes in regards to First Amendment rights of these legal adult women to express themselves.
