This is important

It’s not kinky, and it’s not funny. But it’s worth remembering. (I’ll get back to kinky and/or funny soon, promise. *g*) In the meantime, let’s change the world. πŸ™‚

    Connected to this, a great foundation that works with girls who aren’t forced into marriage, but sold into sex slavery (which happens to a great many of these girls who are deemed ‘burdens on their family’. It’s run by a woman who herself was sold as a child, a wonderful charity if one is looking to make a difference in the life of someone who desperately needs it.

    This is horrible, I can’t even describe my feelings after watching this. This needs to change, and fast.

    Thank you and Loki for spreading this out, hopefully something will be done about it.

  6. Excellent, Alyx, thanks.

    Thanks, Alyx, for posting this. (Unfortunately I first clicked on the ad right below your link, which is also a YouTube video, and watched a dancing fruitcake for a bit before realizing that was probably not something you would describe as “important.” Though one never knows. :D)

    I just saw something related which horrified me: as some of you know, i am a fan of pretty underwear, and wear a lot of Victoria’s Secret. Unfortunately, it turns out they are using child labor – a 13-year-old girl is profiled in the article, who is forced to work in the fields rather than attending school – for some of their so-called “fair trade organic cotton.” There’s nothing fair about it. They say they’re investigating but clearly they didn’t care enough to have checks in place to begin with. Bloomberg News: Victoria’s Secret Revealed In Child Picking Burkina Faso Cotton So – sigh – do whatever with this news you feel you must do. Me, I will be changing lingerie merchants for the time being.

      Sorry about the ads. Apparently they’re unavoidable unless I upgrade or unless you’re signed into WordPress.

      As a fan of pretty underwear myself, the VS news is disturbing. 😦 Let’s hope get their act together soon!

    I also read that I couldn’t bring myself to shop at Victoria’s secret either.
