Not a Single John Ever Cared About the Trafficking Victims They Harmed

Only 15% of all men are johns (socially protected and approved rapists). At least 60% are married or are in long-term relationships. And 100% of them drive the $32 billion/year commercial rape industry. Everyone claims to be against sex trafficking. Everyone claims to care about sex trafficking survivors. So then why does everybody go out of their way to deny sex trafficking survivors reparations and restorative justice?

Instead, society is more concerned with protecting the privileges of these johns. Because these johns are “nice guys” who are “pillars of the community”, they somehow are more deserving of protection than the women and children they pay to degrade, humiliate, rape and harm, and even kill while society is convinced that they aren’t doing anything wrong, that they’re not monsters who are destroying real victims’ lives.

But not a single john cares if the woman or girl he sexually abuses, violates, humiliates, degrades, beats up, and tortures and penetrates and ejaculates inside of and on just for kicks is being forced to open her legs for him under very real threat of harm or death by traffickers or a pimp.

Not a single john cares that she does NOT want to be there for him and wants out but has no way out—except maybe suicide.

Not a single john cares if she is younger than his own daughters—whom he would not want other men doing to them what he just did to the girl that he paid for the “right” to do things to that his own wife or girlfriend would not have to tolerate.

Not a single john cares if she is left with disabling and debilitating urinary incontinence for the rest of her life as a result of the sexual injuries he inflicted on her adolescent body. Don’t like what I’m doing? Hurts? Tough shit. I’m paying. Shut up. You’re nothing but meat.

Not a single john cares if his bed victim did not want to go “bareback”—it’s not that john who will suffer an unwanted (and probably very high risk) pregnancy with a “trick baby” as a result.

Not a single john cares if he infects the woman or girl with a deadly and incurable disease that she can’t get medical care for (but he can)—that is what his money and male privilege entitles him to do to her.

Not a single john cares if the girl he feels entitled to fuck isn’t even old enough to get a paper route job.

Not a single john has a vested interest in working towards a more fair and equal society for women so that his own daughters won’t be poor because of having their job opportunities limited due to discrimination against women with prostitution being offered up as the ONLY “option” left to them.

Not a single john cares about anyone or anything except being able to have access to an entire class of women and kids that the rest of society offered up to him on a silver platter as human shields for him to vent his sickest, darkest urges upon so that women and girls from the “better ” social classes might be spared from having to experience it.

So WHY are so many people in society—including highly privileged professionals who call themselves “objective”, “unbiased”, “enlightened” and “logical”— MORE concerned with protecting HIS reputation and career and HIS “right” to further enrich pimps, to dehumanize and rape, to crush women’s and girls’ hopes and destroy their lives—than they are with protecting and supporting poor sex trafficking survivors’ human rights and valid claims for reparations and restorative justice?

I was only 13. What did I do to deserve to be thrown away and allowed no other place in society except the gutter and an early grave from being trafficked at 13 with NO help to escape when I was 17, and then left to die from poverty due to being stigmatized and excluded from jobs for the rest of my life because of what was done TO me by others?

How the fuck can ANYONE claiming to be a supporter of sex trafficking survivors’ human rights and claims for justice be OK with ANY of that shit in the name of “liberty?” Liberty for WHOM?

As an impoverished trafficking survivor with NO income, fighting for human dignity to abolish slavery and fighting for restorative justice for those of us who are struggling for our lives and basic human rights as victims of an industry of sexual torture, slavery, and the added oppression of stigmatization which has barred me from any employment in post-Welfare Reform America, your support is desperately needed so I may continue my work in educating the public about this very important human rights issue. Please donate to support my work and my quest for restorative justice. Thank you.

    Hi, I am mother of blackmetalvalkyrie and she just asked me to read your story. I am so sorry you had to experience such a trauma in your life. My daughter really admires you, I hope you continue with your educational efforts on this important human rights issue.

  2. Alan Bowker Says:

    I personally know of a woman who regularly used female prostitutes. What is your comment on that? Is she a “John”?

    • Jacqueline S. Homan Says:

      Funny. I never had a female john. Have you asked any other sex trafficking survivors if they did?

      • Alan Bowker Says:

        No, I thought you may have missed that one as your piece simply referred to Johns as “he” and “him” ..
        Not funny at all I suspect, and no I’ve never had any experience or never knowingly have spoken to a sex trafficking survivor.
        Nonetheless, may I ask again if you believe the female user of a female prostitute a “John”? ie “John’s” exist both in male and female forms?

  3. Jacqueline S. Homan Says:

    Well Alan, you’re speaking to a sex trafficking survivor now—ME.

    • Alan Bowker Says:

      Yes, I understand that as it was clear from your article, Jacqueline.
      As such, you are well qualified to confirm both as a survivor and the author.
      Can you confirm you would view “Johns” as both male and female should either choose to contract the services of a female prostitute?
      I acknowledge you may personally have never contracted with a female user, although I’m sure we can agree that may or not be typical.

      • Jacqueline S. Homan Says:

        I did not “contract with” anybody. I was 13 and some adults sold rape tickets to other adults (men). The ONLY contracting parties to that arrangement were the johns and my traffickers.

  4. Alan Bowker Says:

    Johns ARE women and men then, despite your gendered piece. I’ve given you a second version. One is as irrelevant as the other. “People” are Johns, “People” are victims… my sympathy for you and all others who have, effectively, been used by both males and females. Isn’t equality all about treating genders the same – female sex abusers are let off with their crimes. I have personal experience as you do, Jacqueline. I understand both sexually abuse.

    • Annie Says:

      Johns are in the overwhelming majority male, which is why they are called ‘Johns’. Prostitutes are in the overwhelming majority female. There is clearly a very relevant sex divide, and you clearly have no sympathy for Jacqueline.
