Let me be clear: there is NO SUCH THING as a 'child prostitute'. It is a contradiction in terms, and labels a demographic we have already deemed vulnerable with criminal activity.
The correct term is 'CSEC': Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children. This is not playing politics, it is not pussy-footing, it is not hiding realities. It is labeling the child sex trade for what it is. And it is happening in ALBERTA. Until we come to grips with this reality and deal with it in compassion and justice, instead of recoiling in disgust, hiding our faces or playing the blame game, CSEC will continue to flourish.
