There's shock value here. Now most of you will know how much stock I place in shock. However, at the same time I can't ignore the reality this video portrays. This was filmed in the UK, but the same trends are happening in Canada: older boys and men pimping out girls, using coercive and deceptive messages.
It's okay to talk about this stuff — slavery. Light exposes dark. The more we talk truthfully, openly, and lovingly, the more our children will have the savvy and heart to protect themselves and their friends. The more we talk about it with open minds and hearts, the more compassion we will have for victims — seeing them as equal human beings, and not as poor little creatures who made bad choices.
Getting the message?
It's okay to talk.
