My twin sister died because she wasn't able to get the proper treatment she needed (THC Marinol pills). I'm working to get petitions to make sure others don't experience the same things. Please read my article to and sign the petition I linked inside.

This is a biological/economic issue. Without addressing either one of two, you don't solve the problem. Let me layout the full scope of the issue. Let's start with defining rape, why it happens, and ways that have been used throughout history to prevent it.


Rape:

If you're going to talk about sex slavery, you must talk about the action it revolves around, rape. I've had some friends raped before and I think this topic should be explored further to figure out how to end it.

If you don't want to read you can scroll to the bottom.

According to some researchers rape is caused by both biological/psychological reasons. Randy Thornhill, an anthological researcher suggested that biologically inter-individual sexual acts were a means of survival in many different species. In a paper he wrote, he stated " In the case of direct selection for rape, selection may have favored raping because rape had a net positive effect on rapists' reproductive success. Despite its costs, rape increased mate number and thereby reproductive success of males."


It becomes a bit clearer when you see the same actions cone from other organisms like Scorpion Flies, Ducks, Dolphins, and other cousin primates. All of those species use rape as a means of reproduction.


Does it make it a good thing? When applied to a species' survival, yes. For humans, not so much.


What originally began as biological necessity for survival became a psychological problem within a little as 40,000 years. Most of those species use rape as a means of survival because they have a high mortality rate, but when we humans became apex predators and created society to prevent a lot of deaths, rape became biologically unnecessary. It leaves one to ask, why does it still exist?


Further along in Randy Thornhill's paper he stated the following:


"There are at least six hypothetical psychological rape adaptations: (1) a psychological mechanism linking the vulnerability of victims to the use of rape by men; (2) a psychological mechanism linking the lack of resources (or the associated variable of a lack of sexual access to females) to the use of rape by men; (3) a psychological mechanism causing males to have a different preference (in terms of sexual attractiveness as indicated by age) in rape victims than in consensual sexual partners; (4) a psychological-physiological mechanism producing changes in the sperm count of ejaculates during rape (or to depictions of rape) that show specific functional design for rape; (5) a psychological mechanism producing differences in the arousal of males to depictions of rapes than to consensual matings; (6) a psychological-physiological mechanism producing marital rape as a sperm competition tactic."

I know that was long, but bare with me.

Causes 1,4,5,6 can only be changed by changing our biological processes. Causes 2,3, also the most likely, can be changed easily. You change the way a person perceives someone, and you improve the sexual availability for humans, things are instantly solved.


Past "Solutions":

In the past, we humans have used things such as laws and religions teaching either monogamy or marriage and consent with multiple wives. The most effective is making sexual interactions more available economically.

He's some reason why each works to an extent.

1) Laws scare some people from the act, but they fall short because the extremely motivated people are encouraged to not get caught instead.

2) Religions
2a) Monogamy makes acts with somebody other than one's designated spouse feel wrong. People tend to avoid the bad feeling because of it. It falls short because it makes people crave more.
2b) It forces a make to commit, but economically a hideous thing. Could leave a man to take care of too many women and children.

3) If we've learned anything through history, it's that placing wars against anything that happens naturally doesn't work. Just as the 1920s prohibition failed to prevent people from using alcohol, making prostitution illegal doesn't prevent sex slavery or the act of prostitution.

In fact, just like how prohibition caused gang violence, police brutality, organized crimes, and the rise of both cocaine and heroin usage in the US because the same people selling alcohol sold the other shit, making prostitution illegal is actually the cause of underground human trafficking.

Countries like the Netherlands figured this out and created the red-light district where prostitution is legal and highly regulated to ensure safety of a decent percentage of prostitutes, give them money to have a decent life, and tax that industry to charge their economy. Some other advantages, they waste fewer resources criminalizing prostitutes, and are able to regulate who gets to do prostitution based on ages and STDs. Some people could make a career out of such an industry.


By no means do I see that as an incredible solution, but I do see that as a reasonable one.

4) Creating a home where women could be safe could work, but the threat of attack is harsh.


The Perfect Solution:

The perfect solution is to build robots that look, act and sound like humans for prostitution. With recent projects from DARPA's Boston Dynamics, and new projects from Google, I think that's very feasible. Start working on the mechanics of it and you'll be on to a good track.

Mentioning String Theory usually sparks a heated debate between a lot of physics lovers. I'm surprised I haven't seen one online yet.

I think differently. Everything is algorithmic, otherwise it would have no definition in the first place.
Online-dating platforms can tell us a lot about potential partners, but people are not made of steady data points, and love is not just about matching interests.

Looks like that investment I made might pay off.
A year ago, Vitalik Buterin was a teenaged college dropout dabbling in the bitcoin digital currency. Now, he's the founder of a futuristic programming project that just got backed to the tune of $15 million.

I've had the best time here at the hostel. The social life was amazing, rooms were clean, and they gave free Bloody Mary's on Saturday and everyday though the Mardi Gras. Definitely the best living experience ive had while traveling.

I looked for a good pizza place online and I noticed the amazing ratings here. It's an odd hole in a wall place that you wouldn't expect to have good pizza, but it does and I like it. I suggest that if you are in the area, you should go with your friends here and try them out. :-)

I absolutely believe the course was made for you to make little errors. Which in turn gives them a reason to fail you. I don't mean to say that you will fail if you go to this place, but your chances go up if you do. I failed by making a left turn on a red. They say they would have let that go, if the light didn't change colors midway during the turn. The fact that I failed the test isn't why I am giving them a bad review. The real reason i'm giving such a review is because the service was terrible. The people were extremely rude, and were untimely as well. I waited 45mins after my appointed time to take my test! They gave the excuse that they didn't have enough lot space. While this may be true, Idk why they didn't grab a contract from other more empty lots in the area. The black lady in particular was very rude. I asked what was wrong with the gas meter before the test; which alternated between e and full. She gave some a**hole remark. In general, the only reason I will go back is because they always have slots open for testing.

The store has great content ranging from food to home electronics to personal items like clothing and more. The only problem I had with this store is the congestion that easily occurs. Most times I have a hard time maneuvering around the store, and I often get annoyed by other consumers. It ruins the mood even while having so many awesome wholesale deals around, which is also the reason I have the service such a subpar rating. If not for the over congestion and usually rude consumers , the service would be at least 'very good' on this scale.

I was looking for a new coffee place to do my work at when I returned home during the summer from school. I had a bad experience with Starbucks so I decided to look for another place. I found 1515 Broadway Café after looking through numerous positive reviews and decided to make a visit. This place has an amazing community, where I can have fun and get work done. The owners and staff are very cool people and the people that visit are great to play chess with and talk to.

I love this place. I used to hang around here everyday in high school, Decided to visit 2 years later while going back home for the summer only to find that this place is still awesome. If you live around the area you should definitely visit.

Great Price if you have a massive group to go with. Usually the price is $8 per hour for a lane (not per person) , before 6pm and the price goes up after differently depending on the weekday. I have come here with friends and have even used this place as a dating location because I know I will have a great time. Bottom line, I say if you're looking for a cheap place that is plenty of fun for everyone, come here.
