In pretty much all my last blogs I’ve talked about the girls, women, and children. But what about the men and boys? Does human trafficking even affect them? Do they get forced into human trafficking? Let’s talk about that.
The answer is yes, human trafficking does affect men and boys. Men and boys are not just trafficked for sexual pleasures but also for hard labor work. Many times the men get tricked into working. Most of the time when a guy goes to work they don’t know what they’re actually getting themselves into.
In one of my earlier blogs I wrote about the little boy Johnny Gosch who had been taken to be trafficked. Many times we tend to think that it’s just the girls who are trafficked but that is definitely not the case. Men and boys tend to hide their feelings more than girls but that doesn’t mean it doesn't effect them. Being abused and trafficked hurts men just as much as it does women.
Another way that men can be trafficked is through manual labor. Just like in the 1800s but it happens into today's society. When a man’s freedom is stripped from him it almost takes away half of himself too.It’s very difficult for a guy to be in slavery.
So the answer to those questions is yes. Men go through a lot, just like women and girls. Many times we don’t hear about the guys because we don’t think it affects them like it affects the girls. But slavery for men still exists.
