I just saw this article on Romanians getting arrested in "trafficking raid"

QUOTE
Swedish police began investigating the group after noticing a number of new Romanian prostitutes in August on a Stockholm street known as a hangout for hookers.

Where is this street? Just wondering...

Its funny...when I walk home from the pub, I normally have to pass by Feskekôrka...there are always hookers there. They are sitting in cars now (as it is a little cold and they dont want to get chapped lips, I guess) but its funny walking by and they give you "the look" - I always chuckle to myself and keep whistling laugh.gif

Someone told me it was on the street (opposite to Ahlens), the one that sort of leads to old town...

Malmskillnadsgatan, parallell to Sveavägen, on the ridge. Everyone knows about it.

I used to have a job on Malmskillnadsgatan, and eventually the hookers began to recognize me and say hallo. No reason for me not to say hallo back, but I did dread the day mum visits me and we walk donw that street with 10 hookers waving happily at me.

I feel most for these poor women who are obviously being controlled by criminals and working in an unsafe environment, both physically and health wise, precisely what the prostitution laws in Sweden are meant to prevent.
In many civilised societies prostitution is legal, and there are strict safety and health regulations. It seems odd to me that in Swedish society where abortion has long been legal on the basis of women having the right to make decisions regarding their bodies, that when it comes to selling them it is not allowed. Sure that is not technically correct, they can sell, but no one is allowed to buy, but really this is just a quirk to maintain the victim status thus keeping the feminists in the Swedish matriarchy happy.

Why is it a quirk? The point of it is to allow prostitutes to report violence towards them without incriminating themselves.

It's quite weird how a lot of you on here see this as a joke when it's about some teenage girls being sold into prositution and forced to sleep with lots of men everyday and put in caravans in a suburb.
