Advertising isnt Journalism isn’t a Free Speech issue. Advertisers PAY for a space in a publication and are approved by an editor to be in a publication. Publication’s make choices EVERYDAY not to sell cigarettes or sex toys or guns. Why shady Escort services? To me, its an ethics issue. Seattle Weekly is fringe and subversive in approach…And that’s fine. But be revolutionary in art or music or subject matter — don’t help pimp children out.

When are you going to crack down on all the other illegal ads they run, and the Stranger? For adult prostitution, naked pics for “escorts”; prostitutes calling themselves massage therapists?

You have our full support with this Mayor, thank you for helping to put a stop to this. The children need our protection from this sickening exploitation and abuse.

Could we please increase the budget for under cover police at our ports to help curb human smuggling? This, in my opinion would directly help bring an end the sex slave industry. We could offer rewards for information leading to the arrest and conviction of human smugglers.
