Not really a surprise to Girl Chat. After all, long ago we had a rather rotund man utterly obsessed with this site, who was later arrested (foggy memory) for either masturbating or simply trespassing at the Presidio in California. He was our formerly famous Bible interpreter, driven by the quote "better a millstone". He presumed too much love to equal harm. He is long dead.
Never been a fan of Vice, tbh. Not a source I'd ever turn to for confidently factual information. However, it does raise some rather Shakespearean questions regarding people who hide their personal perversions by attacking other perceived perversions ("Methinks thou dost protest too much").
So. What's good for the goose is good for the gander. He's not the first to be hiding his own perverse skeletons, and he surely won't be the last.
I do believe child trafficking is incredibly wrong, but in Ballard's world, there was no distinction between organized prostitution and a simple attraction to children, and herein lies my own ability to throw his ass to the "metoo" crowd. Have at him, ladies.
