“Tristan’s Moon” Highlights Sexually Abused And Trafficked Males

I’ve never seen these statisitcs before.  I should have.  Why aren’t there breakdowns in reports of male to female ratios?  It’s a serious mistake to focus the majority of the attention on one gender leaving the other even more vulnerable.

Havocscope: Stunning Black Market Databse – Slave Price Anyone?

Havocscope is fascinating in it’s breadth of subjects covered and it’s reasoning and purpose.  I have no proof that it is accurate, I’m sharing it with you annectdotally, as I’ve found it.
