John Buffalo Mailer, son of Norman Mailer, who co-founded the Village Voice in 1955, has joined the campaign calling for Village Voice Media to shutter its adult ad section because it can, and has, served as a tool for child sex trafficking. He writes:
While I understand firsthand the financial difficulties facing all print publications today, the fact of the matter is that Village Voice is making money from selling advertisements that others have used to buy and sell minors for sex.
Unfortunately, like those on both sides of this battle, the junior Mailer ignores the fact that adult women are sex trafficked too, making us wonder if anyone cares about sex slaves once they turn 18.
